I agree with those points Tammy… especially the last one. The lag-time between the Sabbath truth being brought to the Advent people, and its reception by Ellen White (or Harmon.. I’m not 100% sure that she had married James White at that time), shows that Ellen White was not the one who always introduced or “prescribed” doctrinal positions. Our enemies speak of her as if she was the leader, and the people followed as her puppets. But of course that is a false representation of her character and role. The fact that she did not introduce the Sabbath to the Adventists is significant to me… and the same can be said about the “State of the Dead” doctrine.
