The facts brought to light are vastly different from what is taught in “Spirit of Prophecy Classes” in Adventist education. If it were not for the fact that Ellen White claimed divine inspiration for her writings, often stating that she received her information directly through visions from God or in conversations with “her angel”, one would think it unfair to treat a deceased religious leader of her reputation with such scrutiny. Yet not to do so is to continue the “white out”.
What makes a person turn 180 degrees in his religious beliefs? The answer for hundreds of Seventh-day Adventist pastors and many thousands (Approximately 300,000 per year) of Adventist members is often the same: the weight of evidence. Dirk Anderson’s revised White Out is a timely work that reveals many more of the “facts of Adventism” that have been “witted out” from official denominational history.
