Hi All,

Did you notice the latest Adventist World?
It's got four (!) articles with emphases on EGW, plus one article on 1844. What offended me most was the article by Tim Poirier (p. 23) with indications of EGW opposing Kellogg's pantheism and the references to his book "The Living Temple". While I haven't read it, Ellen White apparently openly admited not having read it - yet denounced it. Willie White read the most objectionable passages to his mother.

However, J. H. Kellog clearly indicated he was against pantheism. It seems old views die hard. But to keep the membership in the old beliefs that seem very much contrary to evidence really offends me.

Here is A.T. Jones' lengthy letter to EGW in which he objects to her position on the Living Temple

In this letter J.H. Kellogg confesses he is not a pantheist and defines the term.

Similarly, talking about the fanaticism she encountered after 1844 bothers me. Wasn't she par of it as the court records seem to indicate?

Check out the movie "The Road to Wellville" if you haven't already. It's based upon a fictional story about the health facility Dr. Kellogg ran in the early 20th century. It stars Anthony Hopkins, Matthew Broderick, John Cusack, etc.
