Blessings From Suffering "Why am I suffering, Lord?" While Ellen White didn't say why
you specifically might be suffering, she did give a glimpse into how
God can use the sorrow and suffering in our lives to make us stronger Christians and
prepare us for greater responsibilities.
Eschatology: The Millennium Ellen White's eschatology was most definitely pre-millennial. She believed in a
millennium composed of a literal 1000 years, immediately preceded by a literal second coming
of Christ. However, her view of what takes place during the millennium was somewhat
different from that of many evangelicals. See if you think her views were biblical or not.
Hell & Eternal Torment Ellen White most certainly believed in hell, but she also firmly believed in
John 3:16. For this reason and others, her understanding of hell was more like that of Isaac
Watts and seventeenth-century General Baptists than that of John Calvin. See what you
think of her views.
The Infallible Word of God Ellen White repeatedly referred to the Bible as being infallible. At the same
time, she was unsparing in her opposition to "higher criticism." To her,
God had inspired the Bible writers with divine thoughts, which they then put into their own words.
It was therefore her contention that the thoughts expressed by the words of Scripture were true.
