An Analysis of the Literary Dependency of Desire of Ages, chapter 5

contributed by David J. Conklin

Paragraph 24 (analysis of p. 330 of White Lie)

William Hanna's text contains 18 paragraphs in this section. In his comparisons with Desire of Ages, Walter Rea totally omitted paragraphs 1, 8, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17. Perhaps including these six paragraphs from Hanna in these comparisons would lower the percentage of "plagiarized" material even more, but the effort seems hardly worth it, since the percentage is already so low.

Out of the 12 paragraphs from Hanna that Rea did use, paragraph 7 was used twice (see comparisons for paragraphs 10 and 12), paragraph 10 was used twice (see comparisons for paragraphs 14 and 21), paragraph 11 was used four times (see comparisons for paragraphs 14, 18, 20, and 21), and paragraph 18 was used twice (see comparisons for paragraphs 22 and 24).

Desire of Ages (1898)
Ellen G. White, p. 57
The Life of Christ, (1863)
William Hanna, p. 40

By the life and the death of Christ, the thoughts of men also are brought to view. From the manger to the cross, the life of Jesus was a call to self-surrender, and to fellowship in suffering. It unveiled the purposes of men. Jesus came with the truth of heaven, and all who were listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit were drawn to Him. The worshipers of self belonged to Satan's kingdom. In their attitude toward Christ, all would show on which side they stood. And thus everyone passes judgment on himself.

page 58

In the day of final judgment, every lost soul will understand the nature of his own rejection of truth. The cross will be presented, and its real bearing will be seen by every mind that has been blinded by transgression. Before the vision of Calvary with its mysterious Victim, sinners will stand condemned. Every lying excuse will be swept away. Human apostasy will appear in its heinous character. Men will see what their choice has been. Every question of truth and error in the long-standing controversy will then have been made plain. In the judgment of the universe, God will stand clear of blame for the existence or continuance of evil. It will be demonstrated that the divine decrees are not accessory to sin. There was no defect in God's government, no cause for disaffection. When the thoughts of all hearts shall be revealed, both the loyal and the rebellious will unite in declaring, "Just and true are Thy ways, Thou King of saints. Who shall not fear Thee, O Lord, and glorify Thy name? . . . for Thy judgments are made manifest." Rev. 15:3, 4.

Finally, Christ is the great Revealer of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Are we proud, are we worldly, are we self-willed? Nothing will more bring out the sway and empire of these or any kindred passions over us than the bringing closer home to us the holy character and unmitigable claims of Jesus Christ. Keep them at a distance, and the strong man armed keeps the palace of the soul, and all comparatively is at peace. Bring them near, force them home upon the conscience and the heart; then it is that the inwards struggle begins; and in that struggle the spirit unconsciously revealeth its true condition before God.

And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. (Luke 2:26)

(Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. (Luke 2:35)

Observations: In the above comparison we see that Ellen White did not copy a single word from Hanna. This, The White Lie would have us believe, is solid evidence that she plagiarized from Hanna.
