    If you can find a cheap and unintelligent liar than Ellen White, please let me know. Her hubris first;
    Then she claims that the Day of Atonement in 1844 fell on 22nd October.
    Great Controversy, page 400
    http://www.whiteestate.org/books/gc/gc.asp

    That's a huge fat lie, it fell on 23rd September. Now, let's wait for the apologists to regale us on how she had used the Karaite Jews calendar and how they celebrated Day of Atonement one month later than the rest.

    You can confirm for yourself when the Day was using any of the readily available online Jewish date converters like this. Just enter the 10.22.1844 first to get the Jewish year and then get the 10th day of the Seventh month (Tishri) of the same year. You will get the Day of Atonement for 1844.

    Karaite Jews were not spared in propping EGW 'inspiration' claims. Here in 2000, and sometimes back in 1943 and 1944

    Are white lies better or worse than black lies?

    Your <<hubris first>>:

    http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=82235

    <<<21 "But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened.
    Note that "it is the third day," late in the afternoon, and Jesus is already walking on the road to Emmaus with Cleopas and his friend. "It is the third day" and He is resurrected! How much more evidence do you need? But, even that, you will not believe.>>>

    Since when did playing obtuse become a hobby?
    THAT SAME DAY as they had gone to the tomb, the FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK, was the THIRD DAY since 'these things':tonofbricks:

    Note this idea is not original. Many Protestants before Ellen White shared such sentiments.
    page 266

    Why is it another White Lie?
    1. Ellen White claims INSPIRATION just like Paul
    2. Ellen White claims infallibility
    For these, her writings are supposedly free of material error. I may forgive Protestant Reformers for their anti-Romish sentiments and limited access to history, but not a 19th century 'inspired' prophet with Holy Spirit guiding them.

    There is NOTHING that happened in 538AD remotely resembling 'papal supremacy'. Let's hear what a historian of Adventist shade has to say about 538 AD, one Samuelle Bacchiochi PhD
    How do Adventists explain this away?
    1. The unthinking sheeple go on a hopeless hunt for relevancies in 538AD or 1798AD. Finding nothing they conclude that they will some day just that that's no enough reason to discard EGW 'inspired' garbage

    2. The relatively intelligent ones admit the mistakes (glaring errors) and attempt to dismiss them while holding onto her inspiration. They claim that prophets are human, fallible vessels of infallible truths so some margin of error is healthy. But this opens a Pandora's box; it calls for adherents of EGW and scriptures to cherry pick what they think is the truth while discarding 'errors'. That's how somebody can doubt Resurrection of Jesus while still maintaining they are Christians.

    Because your response had nothing to do with the OP. It wasn't "white lies", as in "little white lies". It was "White lies", as in "Ellen White is a liar".

    Poor Vooks.

    But I placed that quote from your arsenal of veil vile, to illustrate whose 'white lies' are blackest. Not to argue about something there is nothing to be argued about.

    By the way, cast your load of stress stones on the correct word for pete's sake. Such trivial inaccuracies give me the creeps, if you don't mind, please.

    Testimonies 5 p. 66.
    Anything lessening confidence including causing doubt in Ellen White is rebelling against God

    But Ellen White insisted her writings had THE TRUTH
    Letter 90, 1906

    Anything other than the TRUTH is falsehood at most.
    Bachiocchi struggled with the difference between lying and 'getting things wrong'. The biggest question is, what parts of her writings are WRONG? Imagine attempting to mutate Romans and tossing out stuff Paul 'got flat out wrong'
