The Vatican has spent four billion covering up the pedophilia in the Catholic Church.
While not spending four billion, Adventism has spent much energy, effort, expense and excercise in trying to refute, deny, explain away, Ellen’s dishonest “borrowing” of other writers’ ideas.
Her emphatic denial that she ever used any material other than her own, except that obtained from Angels, which she then supposedly placed in quotation marks, reveals,her dishonesty.
Her children and grandchildren have been in deep denial that their ancestor had vociferously and vehemently denied any plagiarism.
More recently, new evidence has come forward, that in addition to her “borrowing”, her extensive entourage of “literatury assistants” were heavy contributors to her prolific output.
So any current reading of her vast bibliography means that any given paragraph, phrase, or page, is SUSPECT-- was it her original output, or was it plagiarized, or was it penned by one of her “secretaries”?
Given this dubious record, it still astonishes me that our esteemed leader, often has more EGW quotes in his sermons than Biblical texts!
This deeply flawed woman remains Adventism’s “Virgin Mary” positioned high on her undeserved pedestal, while all other Adventist women, like Catholic women, are decidedly SECOND CLASS CITIZENS.
Adventism owes a huge debt to Walter Rea.
His prodigious computer-like mind, his prolific memorization of reams of EGW’s writings, enabled him, in a pre-internet era, to “connect the dots”.
From being an ardent admirer, acolyte and adherent of EGW, he was able to expose her as a cheat and a charlatan.
His reward? After years of faithful pastoring and service his legally earned pension and medical benefits were revoked.
A travesty for revealing TRUTH!
Neil Wilson"s most reprehensible legacy is his muzzling of Walter Rea by insisting on no further publications in exchange for re-instituting Rea’s legal pension and medical benefits.
