Departing from the Original Faith established by God
Giving heed to Seducing Spirits & Doctrines of Devils

“I am so sorry that sensible men do not discern the trail of the serpent. I call it thus; for thus the Lord pronounces it. Wherein are those who are designated as departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, departing from the faith which they have held sacred for the past fifty years? I leave that for the ones to answer who sustain those who develop such acuteness in their plans for spoiling and hindering the work of God.”

— SpTB07, p. 61.2 • Ellen G. White

“We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” — Life Sketches of Ellen G. White, p. 196 • Ellen G. White

Living Temple contains the Alpha of these theories. The Omega would follow in a little while. I tremble for our people. These beautiful representations are similar to the temptation that the enemy brought to Adam and Eve in Eden.— 1SAT, p. 341.3 • Ellen G. White

God calls upon us to hold firmly to the fundamental principles that are based upon unquestionable authority” and “One thing it is certain is soon to be realized—the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout. We are to hold fast the first principles of our denominated faith and go forward from strength to increased faith. Ever we are to keep the faith that has been substantiated by the Holy Spirit of God from the earlier events of our experience until the present time. We need now larger breadth and deeper, more earnest, unwavering faith in the leadings of the Holy Spirit. If we needed the manifest proof of the Holy Spirit’s power to confirm truth in the beginning, after the passing of the time, we need today all the evidence in the confirmation of the truth, when souls are departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. There must not be any languishing of soul now. If ever there was a period of time when we needed the Holy Spirit’s power in our discourses, in our prayers, in every action proposed, it is now. We are not to stop at the first experience, but while we bear the same message to the people, this message is to be strengthened and enlarged. We are to see and realize the importance of the message made certain by its divine origin. We are to follow on to know the Lord, that we may know that His going forth is prepared as the morning. Our souls need the quickening from the Source of all power. We may be strengthened and confirmed in the past experience that holds us to the essential points of truth which have made us what we are—Seventh-day Adventists.— Letter 326-1905.2 • Ellen G. White

“That the name, Seventh-day Adventists, is truly representative of our faith and practice, cannot be denied. That it is modest and humble, and points to both the Father and Son, is also beyond question. Why then should it not be heartily adopted by every lover of present truth?” — Adventist Review & Sabbath Herald, November 19, 1861, p. 197.12 • Ellen G. White

The Seventh-day Advent Movement faithfully upheld its fundamental bible principles and stood firmly upon the platform of truth, given to them by God, from 1844 to 1894 and beyond. In 1903 pantheistic and trinitarian philosophies, doctrines of devils, began to invade the church, subtle teachings which were strongly opposed by Ellen G. White and the early SDA pioneers.

In 1919, a secret bible conference was held where many differing ideas and philosophies, including the trinity doctrine, were discussed among church leaders and pastors. In 1944, long established non-trinitarian statements were systematically removed from many Adventist books and publications. In the mid 1950’s, the church put out the book Questions on Doctrine, which fundamentally denied some of the early fundamental teachings of the Seventh-day Advent pioneers and Mrs. Ellen G. White. At the 1980 SDA General Conference Session, the doctrine of the trinity, with it’s unbiblical 3-in-1 god, was officially adopted into the church’s fundamental beliefs. During her lifetime, Ellen White often warned the church to stay faithful to the fundamental principles given to them by God, those biblical principles of truth which had been held by them as sacred for over 50 years, from 1844 to 1894 and beyond.

The video, The Future of Unity & the Trail of the Serpent, tells the story of how this sad change came about among God’s remnant people. It details how our God inspired religion has been changed and a new platform of error has been established, taking the place of the original platform of truth. This new platform of error is based upon satanic philosophical ideas regarding the personality of God and of His divine only begotten Son. Be sure to visit the EGW Quotes page to see the many statements regarding the fundamental principles and the necessity of maintaining those principles given during the “past fifty years” of the early Seventh-day Advent Movement’s history [1844-1894].

“We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” — Life Sketches of Ellen G. White, p. 196 • Ellen G. White

We are to repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work.— Review and Herald, May 25, 1905 • Ellen G. White

God would have the truths of the third angel’s message firmly established in the hearts of His people. Not one pin or pillar of the faith He has so graciously given is to be moved. The wily foe will bring in specious arguments to substantiate the theories he desires to have take the place of truth in the minds of the people. Assertions will be made that have no foundation in truth. The words of Scripture interwoven with a mass of error will be brought forward to confuse the mind. But we might be held in controversy as long as time should last if we were to listen to all the applications of Scripture that might be made to substantiate erroneous theories.God has not given the Scriptures that they may be used to uphold a false position that would unsettle minds regarding light that He has clearly given. If men depart from the faith they have once held, and use the Word, which once they used in confirming their faith, now to support error, they do so to their own destruction. We are forbidden by God to repeat their arguments. Yet I have been shown that this has been done by some who have accepted the false teachings of those who have departed from the faith.” 23LtMs, Ms 27, 1908, par. 13-14 • Ellen G. White

A line of truth extending from that time [1844] to the time when we shall enter the city of God was plainly marked out before me, and I gave my brethren and sisters the instruction that the Lord had given me. They knew that when not in vision I could not understand these matters, and they accepted as light direct from heaven the revelations given me. The leading points of our faith as we hold them today [1903] were firmly established. Point after point was clearly defined, and all the brethren came into harmony.18LtMs, Ms 135, 1903, par. 3 • Ellen G. White

“It is working upon wrong principles that has brought the cause of God into its present embarrassment. The people have lost confidence in those who have the management of the work. Yet we hear that the voice of the Conference is the voice of God. Every time I have heard this, I thought it was almost blasphemy. The voice of the Conference ought to be the voice of God, but it is not, because some in connection with it are not men of faith and prayer, they are not men of elevated principle.” — April 1, 1901, Ms. 37-1901 • Ellen G. White

The greatest want of the world is the want of men–men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.” — Education, p. 57.3 • Ellen G. White

After a long and severe conflict, the faithful few decided to dissolve all union with the apostate church if she still refused to free herself from falsehood and idolatry. They saw that separation was an absolute necessity if they would obey the Word of God. They dared not tolerate errors fatal to their own souls, and set an example which would imperil the faith of their children and children’s children. To secure peace and unity they were ready to make any concession consistent with fidelity to God; but they felt that even peace would be too dearly purchased at the sacrifice of principle. If unity could be secured only by the compromise of truth and righteousness, then let there be difference, and even war.Well would it be for the church and the world if the principles that actuated those steadfast souls were revived in the hearts of God’s professed people. There is an alarming indifference in regard to the doctrines which are the pillars of the Christian faith. The opinion is gaining ground, that, after all, these are not of vital importance. This degeneracy is strengthening the hands of the agents of Satan, so that false theories and fatal delusions which the faithful in ages past imperiled their lives to resist and expose, are now regarded with favor by thousands who claim to be followers of Christ. — Great Controversy, 1888, p. 45.2-3 • Ellen G. White
