We are Seventh-day Adventists proclaiming the biblical understanding of the Godhead. 

This site was created as an invitation to all Seventh-day Adventists to re-examine the current position of the church with respect to its doctrine of Trinity as it is taught and expressed in the church's 28 Fundamental Beliefs. We challenge all SDAs to see if the doctrine is actually tenable and can stands the test of Scriptures and the Spirit of Prophecy-writings of Ellen White. Often times we find extreme arguments being employed by both Trinitarians and Non-Trinitarians within Seventh-day Adventism to defend their views. This site seeks balance and accuracy by taking into consideration the totality of Inspiration, both from the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy along with an accurate assessment of the SDA Church history. This site is dedicated to providing contents to unmask errors of the doctrine of Trinity as espoused by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Much of the contents on this website is devoted to furthering this Truth. This site is primarily intended for the Seventh-day Adventist community of believers.

1. We renounce any labels such as "non-trinitarian" or "anti-trinitarian" but we identify ourselves as Seventh-day Adventists and endeavor to hold the same belief that is consistent with what the church taught and believed in the last 25 years (1890 to 1915) of Ellen White's life. 

2. We apologize to all to whom our actions have been apparent for anything that is viewed as disloyalty to the Church of Christ which grew out of the Millerite movement and was formally established in 1863 as Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

3. We cannot violate our conscience on how we believe about the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit in light of how we understand the "HEAVENLY TRIO" as expounded by the Inspiration, both in the Scriptures and the Spirit of Prophecy.

4. We acknowledge that there are variants within the Adventism regarding the doctrine and we implore the church to acknowledge the same and thereby extend flexibility and latitude on this issue. 

5. We acknowledge that the Bible does teach a "triunity" of Father, Son and the Holy Spirit but our view is not the same as some of the views in the Church.

6. We pledge that member or not, office holder or not, we want to use our influence to build up the SDA church, focusing primarily on the Three Angels Messages and that which we hold in common.

7. We affirm that God the Father is the One True God of the Bible in the exclusive sense. This however does not exclude Christ being God in the inclusive sense for He is the Son of God.

8. While we affirm the "personhood" of the Holy Spirit, we believe the Holy Spirit as the power and presence of God and of Christ which can function independently of themselves like a "third Person" but NOT as a separate individual. 

9. We affirm Christ's divinity in that Jesus Christ is God's natural/real pre-incarnate BEGOTTEN Son, NOT a created being, whom by the virtue of His begetting, inherited all things (same substance, authority, power, appellations) from His Father.

10. We regard the writings of Ellen G. White to be inspired of God, in harmony with the Scriptures as the direct Testimony of Jesus Christ Himself-the Spirit of Prophecy (Revelation 19:10) and therefore carries with it no less divine authority than the writings of the Bible prophets. As It Reads use the writings of Ellen G. White, not to replace the Scriptures but only to affirm what is already revealed in the Scriptures and also to defend against those who use her writings falsely.

A great work can be done by presenting to the people THE BIBLE JUST AS IT READS. Carry the Word of God to every man’s door, urge its plain statements upon every man’s conscience, repeat to all the Saviour’s command, “Search the Scriptures.” Admonish them TO TAKE THE BIBLE AS IT IS, to implore divine enlightenment, and then, when the light shines, to gladly accept each precious ray, and fearlessly abide the consequences.—Testimonies for the Church 5:388. {ChS 144.2}

Whenever the study of the Scriptures is entered upon without a prayerful, humble, teachable spirit, the plainest and simplest as well as the most difficult passages will be wrested from their true meaning. The papal leaders select such portions of Scripture as best serve their purpose, interpret to suit themselves, and then present these to the people, while they deny them the privilege of studying the Bible and understanding its sacred truths for themselves. THE WHOLE BIBLE SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE JUST AS IT READS. IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR THEM NOT TO HAVE BIBLE INSTRUCTION AT ALL THAN TO HAVE THE TEACHING OF THE SCRIPTURES THUS GROSSLY MISREPRESENTED.—Darkness Before Dawn p. 7.4 {DD 7.4}

THE BIBLE, JUST AS IT READS, IS TO BE OUR GUIDE. Nothing is so calculated to enlarge the mind and strengthen the intellect as the study of the Bible. No other study will so elevate the soul and give vigor to the faculties as the study of the living oracles. The minds of thousands of ministers of the gospel are dwarfed because they are permitted to dwell upon commonplace things, and are not exercised in searching for the hidden treasure of the Word of God. As the mind is brought to the study of God’s Word, the understanding will enlarge and the higher powers will develop for the comprehension of high and ennobling truth.—Mind, Character, and Personality vol.1 p. 93.2 {1MCP 93.2}

The whole Bible is a revelation of the glory of God in Christ. Received, believed, obeyed, it is the great instrumentality in the transformation of character. It is the grand stimulus, the constraining force, that quickens the physical, mental, and spiritual powers and directs the life into right channels.—Mind, Character, and Personality vol.1 p. 93.4 {1MCP 93.2}{1MCP 93.4}

The truths most plainly revealed in the Bible have been involved in doubt and darkness by learned men, who, with a pretense of great wisdom, teach that the Scriptures have a mystical, a secret, spiritual meaning not apparent in the language employed. These men are false teachers. It was to such a class that Jesus declared: “Ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God.” Mark 12:24. The language of the Bible should be explained according to its obvious meaning, unless a symbol or figure is employed. Christ has given the promise: “If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine.” John 7:17. IF MEN WOULD BUT TAKE THE BIBLE AS IT READS, IF THERE WERE NO FALSE TEACHERS TO MISLEAD AND CONFUSE THEIR MINDS, a work would be accomplished that would make angels glad and that would bring into the fold of Christ thousands upon thousands who are now wandering in error..."—Great Controversy p. 598.3 {GC 598.3} {DD 38.4}

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
— JOHN 17:3(KJV)

"In order to be co-workers with God, in order to become like Him and to reveal His character, we must know Him aright. WE MUST KNOW HIM AS HE REVEALS HIMSELF.

A knowledge of God is the foundation of all true education and of all true service. It is the only real safeguard against temptation. It is this alone that can make us like God in character.  

This is the knowledge needed by all who are working for the uplifting of their fellow men. TRANSFORMATION OF CHARACTER, PURITY OF LIFE, EFFICIENCY IN SERVICE, ADHERENCE TO CORRECT PRINCIPLES, ALL DEPEND UPON A RIGHT KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. THIS KNOWLEDGE IS THE ESSENTIAL PREPARATION BOTH FOR THIS LIFE AND FOR THE LIFE TO COME." --Ministry of Healing p. 409

"The sanctification of the soul is accomplished through steadfastly beholding Him by faith AS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, full of grace and truth. The power of truth is to transform heart and character. Its effect is not like a dash of color here and there upon the canvas; the whole character is to be transformed, the image of Christ is to be revealed in words and actions. A new nature is imparted. Man is renewed after the image of Christ in righteousness and true holiness." {Lt2a-1892.6}

"In a special sense Seventh-day Adventists have been set in the world as watchmen and light-bearers. To them has been entrusted the last warning for a perishing world. On them is shining wonderful light from the Word of God. They have been given a work of the most solemn import,—the proclamation of the first, second, and third angels’ messages. There is no other work of so great importance. They are to allow nothing else to absorb their attention."—Testimonies for the Church 9:19 (1909). {LDE 45.3}

The First Angel's Message reads: "Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." Revelation 14:7

  • The verse reads, "give glory to him (why does it not say "them"?)." Does this singular, personal pronoun "him" refer to a unity of three co-eternal Persons—Trinity, or does it refer to a singular God?
  • The verse continues, "for the hour of his (why does it not say "their"?) judgment is come." Does this singular, possessive personal pronoun "his" refer to a unity of three co-eternal Persons—Trinity, or does it refer to a singular God?
  • The verse further states, "worship him (why does it not say "them"?) that made heaven, and earth..." Does the singular, personal pronoun "him" refer to a unity of three co-eternal Persons—Trinity, or does it refer to a singular God?

If "him" or "his" in Revelation 14:7 is referring to the three persons of the Trinity, then you would also have to assume that the writer (John) believed that three persons make a single being (in order to have used the pronouns as he did). Suffice to say, this was not the case.

This is the same John who wrote, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3.

If one is to proclaim the Three Angels' Messages, it stands to reason that he or she ought to know who this "God" is that we ought to fear, give glory to, and worship. This is to be the foundation for the subsequent angels' (second and third) messages that would follow.

"The Three Angels’ Messages—The proclamation of the first, second, and third angels’ messages has been located by the word of Inspiration. NOT A PEG OR A PIN IS TO BE REMOVED. No human authority has any more right to change the location of these messages than to substitute the New Testament for the Old. The Old Testament is the gospel in figures and symbols. The New Testament is the substance. One is as essential as the other. The Old Testament presents lessons from the lips of Christ, and these lessons have not lost their force in any particular. THE FIRST AND SECOND MESSAGES WERE GIVEN IN 1843 AND 1844, and we are now under the proclamation of the third; but all three of the messages are still to be proclaimed. It is just as essential now as ever before that they shall be repeated to those who are seeking for the truth. By pen and voice we are to sound the proclamation, showing their order, and the application of the prophecies that bring us to the third angel’s message. THERE CANNOT BE A THIRD WITHOUT THE FIRST AND SECOND. These messages we are to give to the world in publications, in discourses, showing in the line of prophetic history the things that have been, and the things that will be."—Manuscript 32, 1896. {CW 26.2}
