One of the doctrines of the SDA is: The Gift of Prophecy: One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is prophecy. This gift is an identifying mark of the remnant church and was manifested in the ministry of Ellen. G. White . As the Lord's messenger, her writings are a continuing and authoritative source of truth which provide for the church comfort, guidance, instruction, and correction. They also make clear that the Bible is the standard by which all teaching and experience must be tested. The gift of prophecy - o.k. The Bible is the standard - o.k. Ellen G.White - huh? Some questions for a member of the SDA denomination: 1. Must all SDA members believe that Ellen G. White "manifested" the gift of prophecy? 2. If so, did you personally test Ellen G. White against the Bible before becoming a member of the SDA denomination? 3. Can you explain how Ellen G. White's "gift of prophecy" was tested against the Bible.
