I’m not sure what your experience has been with Ellen White. It probably has a lot to do with when you were born. In my lifetime, our relationship as a church to the gift of prophecy has been all over the map. It has been the focus of misinformation and undermining attacks, even in Ellen’s lifetime, partly due to a wrong application of and misguided use of her writings. Amidst all the fray, the focus of her life and teachings has been lost. We trust this issue of the Herald will help us all realign our focus and place Jesus and Scripture in the center of our lives.
