The Warning

"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, AND our Lord Jesus Christ." (Jude 1:4)

In Revelation 12:17, we read that the 'dragon', which is Satan, was 'wroth with the woman', which is God's church, and 'went to make war with the remnant of her seed.' Now Satan had already tried the persecution route, in a bid to wipe out God's church, during the dark ages. But he found that this only made the church grow! So what was he to try with the remnant church in the end times? What better way than to destroy within, using infiltration, deception and changing the very core beliefs of God's remnant church. If Satan could succeed in 'deceiving God's elect' (Matthew 24:24), in causing them to turn from the truth, then he could triumph!

The Alpha of heresies had already entered our church in the days of Ellen White, through John Harvey Kellogg. But the Omega of heresies was to follow, and Sister White warned that it would be of a most 'startling nature':

"Be not deceived; many will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We have now before us the alpha of this danger. The omega will be of a most startling nature." (E.White, Testimonies for the Church Containing Letters to Physicians and Ministers Instruction to Seventh-day Adventists, July 24, 1904, pgr. 16)

"Living Temple contains the alpha of these theories. I knew that the omega would follow in a little while; and I trembled for our people." (E.White, Testimonies for the Church Containing Letters to Physicians and Ministers Instruction to Seventh-day Adventists, pgr. 53)

"I tell you now, that when I am laid to rest, great changes will take place ... I want the people to know that I warned them fully before my death." (E.White, Manuscript 1, February 24, 1915)

So this heresy which was to come into our ranks, was clearly to be of a most serious nature, which caused Sister White to 'tremble' for the people of our church. She warned of 'changes' that were to take place in our church after she died. Changes that would change the very religion of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination.

"The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced." (E.White, Testimonies for the Church Containing Letters to Physicians and Ministers Instruction to Seventh-day Adventists, pgr. 53)

This is the 'war' which Satan was to bring to God's end time church. A war much greater than using destroying weapons. It would be a war which would seek to remove the very foundation of our faith and cause the Seventh-day Adventist Church to 'clasp hands' with Babylon! And what could be more shocking or 'startling', than to deceive the church into worshipping a false god! Specifically, the false trinity god of Babylon!

Our church was built upon the very Biblical, foundational truth of the one true God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, who was literally begotten of the Father sometime in eternity past as a true Son. With the Holy Spirit being the Father's own divine Spirit, which He has given to His Son Jesus. And Ellen White warned our church NOT to enter into controversy over the beliefs about God which our pioneers held;

"I knew that the omega would follow in a little while; and I trembled for our people. I knew that I must warn our brethren and sisters not to enter into controversy over the presence and personality of God ... The spiritualistic theories regarding the personality of God, followed to their logical conclusion, sweep away the whole Christian economy." (E.White, Testimonies for the Church Containing Letters to Physicians and Ministers Instruction to Seventh-day Adventists, pgr. 53-54)

Sadly, the church did not listen to this council and entered into controversy over the personality of God and His Son, seeking to sweep away the foundation of our church and bring the trinity god of Rome into our church.

Enter LeRoy Froom

There was a movement right after the death of Ellen White and our pioneers to adopt Trinitarianism into our church. And although there were a number of leaders involved in this movement, one of the main characters was the man LeRoy Froom. You see, the Seventh-day Adventist Church was seen as a 'cult' by the rest of the world, and so LeRoy Froom and others, instead of putting forth the straight truth to convince the world that we are not a cult, they changed the very foundational pillar of our church, the God we worship, to bring the Seventh-day Adventist Church more in line with the rest of the world. And what is the foundational teaching which the churches of Babylon unite on? The Trinity god! Just take a look at Froom's confession in his book 'Movement of Destiny'.

"May I here make a frank, personal confession? When back between 1926 and 1928 I was asked by our leaders to give a series of studies on the Holy Spirit ... I found that aside from priceless leads found in the Spirit of Prophecy, there was practically nothing in our literature setting forth a sound, Biblical exposition in this tremendous field of study. There were no previous pathfinding books on the question in our literature." (LeRoy Froom, Movement of Destiny, p.322)

Actually, there is much information regarding the Holy Spirit in the writings of Ellen White and our pioneers. Information that reveals the Holy Spirit to be the Spirit of Christ HIMSELF, not some other 'third being'. Look at the following two examples of hundreds of quotes:

"It is not safe to catch the spirit from another. We want the Holy Spirit, which is Jesus Christ." (E.White, Letter 66, April 10, 1894, par.17-18)

"They have one God and one Saviour; and one Spirit--THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST--is to bring unity into their ranks." (E.G.White, Testimonies, Vol.9 p.189)

So why did Froom say the above? Because NONE of our pioneers were Trinitarians. And it was information supporting the trinity which Froom was looking for. And the fact that he said there were 'priceless leads' in Ellen White's writings, shows that she also did not believe in the trinity. But what does Froom do? He chooses one or two texts out of context and deceitfully uses them to protray that Sister White did believe in the trinity. Just like Sunday keepers use 'priceless leads' in scripture to support their false Sunday sabbath teaching, the immortal soul teaching and others. So what does Froom admit to turning to?

"I was compelled to search out a score of valuable books written by men outside of our Faith ... for initial clues and suggestions ... Having these, I went on from there. But they were decided early helps. And scores, if not hundreds, could confirm the same sobering conviction that some of these other men frequently had a deeper insight into the spiritual things of God than many of our own men had on the Holy Spirit and the triumphant life. It was still a largely obscure theme." (LeRoy Froom, Movement of Destiny, p.322)

So what does Froom do? He goes to the men of Babylon to study the trinity, because our church pioneers strongly rejected it ... and rightly so, because it is completely unBiblical. And I'm not just talking about the Roman Catholic version. ALL versions of the trinity teaching are false and very dangerous. But Froom doesn't stop there. He even has the audacity to say that the men of Babylon had a 'deeper insight into the spiritual things of God than many of our pioneers'! What a wicked thing to say! Our pioneers, just as Sister White confirmed, 'searched for truth as for hidden treasure' and moved 'step by step under the influence of the Spirit of God' (E.White, Review and Herald, May 25, 1905)

Due to the fact that nothing in the writings of our pioneers matched up to his agenda, Froom had to make it appear that our pioneers were in error and that the 'true awakening' had now begun after the death of our pioneers ... "Surely the hour has now come to forget the past and its variances, to press together, and to move forward unitedly." (Movement of Destiny, p.373) ... "Thank God, that time of reticence and misunderstanding has passed ... Thank God, that final awakening is definitely under way." (Movement of Destiny, p.322)

Froom was certainly not alone in this. In fact, the then President of the General Conference A.G.Daniells, supported Froom in bringing in this new trinitarian view of God into the church. Froom states ... "Back in the spring of 1930 Arthur G. Daniells, for more than twenty years president of our General Conference, told me he believed that, at a later time, I should undertake a thorough survey of the entire plan of redemption - its principles, provisions, and divine Personalities ... But, he said, it is to be later-not yet, not yet ... Possibly it would be necessary to wait until certain individuals had dropped out of action, before the needed portrayal could wisely be brought forth." (Movement of Destiny, p.17) ... Those 'certain individuals' who needed to 'drop out of action' (die), before properly implementing this plan were probably influential family members of the original pioneers.

And Froom admitted to be 'pummelled' by the old stalwarts of the church for entering into controversy over the personality of God and the Holy Spirit, because they knew that what Froom was doing, would 'sweep away the Christian economy', just as Ellen White stated ... "May I state that my book, The Coming of the Comforter was the result of a series of studies that I gave in 1927-28, to ministerial institutes throughout North America. You cannot imagine how I was pummeled by some of the old timers because I pressed on the personality of the Holy Sprit as the Third Person of the Godhead. Some men denied that -still deny it. But the book has come to be generally accepted as standard." (Letter of LeRoy Froom to Otto H. Christensen, Oct 27, 1960)

So what was the next step? The following quote should cause every true Seventh-day Adventist to shudder!

"The next logical and inevitable step in the implementing of our unified fundamental beliefs, involved revision of certain standard works, so as to eliminate statements that taught, and thus perpetuated erroneous views on the Godhead. Such sentiments were now sharply at variance with the accepted fundamental beliefs set forth in the Church Manual." (Movement of Destiny, p.422)

"The removal of the last standing vestige of 'Arianism' in our standard literature was accomplished through the deletions from the classic D+R [Daniel and the Revelation] in 1944." (Movement of Destiny, p. 465)

Just a quick note on the term 'Arianism' used above. That is a tag given to anyone who is non-trinitarian. Just like the three horn tribes who were wiped out by the Papacy in Daniel 7. They too were non-trinitarians. But the Papacy has made it look like Arians believed Christ was a created being. And this is completely fabricated just to make non-trinitarians look like they are in error. We do not believe Christ was created. We believe He was begotten, just as the Bible states!

"Whether the teachings of Arius were such as are usually represented to us or not, who can say? Philippus Limborch doubts that Arius himself ever held that Christ was created instead of being begotten." (B.G.Wilkinson, Truth Triumphant)

Our pioneers believed in the TRUE Biblical Godhead of Father and Son. With Jesus being the LITERAL Son of God the Father, begotten sometime in eternity past. But now this was against the 'new view' of God set forth by Froom and Co. So they went about CHANGING the writings of our pioneers to fit in with the new belief. So just as Ellen White warned, there would be a 'giving up of the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith ... our religion would be changed ... the work of the pioneers would be counted as error, and books of a new order would be written' (Ellen White, Battle Creek Letters, p.81)

And what was the primary purpose of what LeRoy Froom, Daniells and others did in bringing the trinity god teaching into the Adventist Church? ... "We are one with our fellow Christians of denominational groups in the great fundamentals of the faith once delivered to the saints." (Questions on Doctrines, p.32).

Unity with Babylon was the primary purpose! Oh Lord, have mercy on us!

Seventh-day Adventist Church Today

Today, our church is full of confusion, thanks to Satan working through men like LeRoy Froom and Co, and the people are not studying for themselves. Just look at this quote from the official Seventh-day Adventist Church website, concerning God:

"Immortal, all-powerful and all-loving, GOD is a relationship of FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. THE ONLY BEING worthy of our worship." (source)

Did you catch that? 'Father, Son and Holy Spirit, THE ONLY BEING worthy of worship.' This is utter confusion friends, and this is the '3 in 1' trinity god of Rome, which Froom and Co. brought into our church. And even our theologians today are confirming that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is in agreement with Rome concerning God! Just look at this quote from George W. Reid, in a document which he prepared for dialogue with Roman Catholic representatives:

"Nature of God. A reading of the above statements will show that with respect to their doctrine of God, Seventh-day Adventists are IN HARMONY with the great creedal statements of Christendom, including the Apostles' Creed, (Nicea AD-325), and the additional definition of faith concerning the Holy Spirit as reached in Constantinople AD-381." (source)

Our pioneers warned against accepting such teachings that were reached in Nicaea 325, concerning God:

"The doctrine of the Trinity WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE CHURCH BY THE COUNCIL OF NICEA, A. D. 325. This doctrine destroys the personality of God, and his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. The infamous, measures by which it was forced upon the church which appear upon the pages of ecclesiastical history might well cause every believer in that doctrine to blush." (J. N. Andrews, March 6, 1855, Review & Herald, vol. 6, no. 24, page 185)

"Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for THE faith which was once delivered unto the saints ...' (Jude 3, 4) ... The exhortation to contend for the faith delivered to the saints, is to us alone. And it is very important for us to know what for and how to contend. In the 4th verse he gives us the reason why we should contend for THE faith, a particular faith; 'for there are certain men,' or a certain class who deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ ... THE WAY SPIRITUALIZERS HAVE DISPOSED OF OR DENIED THE ONLY LORD GOD AND OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST IS FIRST USING THE OLD UNSCRIPTURAL TRINITARIAN CREED, viz., that Jesus Christ is the eternal God, though they have not one passage to support it, while we have plain scripture testimony in abundance that he is the Son of the eternal God." (James White, January 24, 1846, The Day Star)

Our current church leaders even admit to the fact that the trinity is simply 'ASSUMED' from the Bible ... "While NO SINGLE SCRIPTURAL PASSAGE states formally the doctrine of the Trinity, it is ASSUMED as a fact by Bible writers... Only by faith can we accept the existence of the Trinity." (Adventist Review, July, 1981 - Special Issue on Bible Doctrines)

Assumed? Sunday keeping is ASSUMED! The immortal soul teaching is ASSUMED! And many other teachings of Babylon are 'ASSUMED'. Sadly, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has now been deceived into basing their beliefs on assumption, rather than a 'thus saith the LORD'. How sad.

"Thousands have a FALSE CONCEPTION of God and His attributes. They are as verily serving a FALSE GOD AS WERE THE SERVANTS OF BAAL. Are we worshiping the true God as HE is revealed in HIS word, in Christ, in nature, OR ARE WE ADORING SOME PHILOSOPHICAL IDOL ENSHRINED IN HIS PLACE? God is a God of truth." (E.White, Testimonies for the Church, Vol.5, p.174)

The religion of the Seventh-day Adventist Church has been changed since the days of Ellen White and our pioneers. Great deceptions have taken place. Wolves have come into our midst and deceived 'if possible the very elect'. No wonder there is little power in the Adventist Church today. No wonder we have leaders clasping hands with the Papal Church. Apostasy! Apostasy! Wake up! Wake up!
