Fact from Fiction
A Response to the Video:
Seventh-day Adventism — The Spirit Behind the Church
by Bob Pickle
This book is a response to a video put together by five former Adventist
preachers, a video attacking Ellen White and the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The 200+ replies
in A Response to the Video are thorough, biblical, and
well-documented. It's all yours for only $9.95,
plus shipping (calculated on the Check Out page). 8.5" x 11"; 160 pp.
Do you have questions? Have you seen the numerous allegations against Ellen White on
web sites, in books, or on this video? Are you troubled by the accusations made by former
Adventist preachers like Mark Martin, Dale Ratzlaff, and Sydney Cleveland, and by the
book The White Lie? Want to get the other side of the story as you decide for
yourself what is truth and what is error? Then A Response to the Video is for you!
What makes A Response to the Video particularly helpful is the fact that it quotes extensively and
directly each accusation. In one volume you get both sides of each question at the same time.
And there is definitely another side to the story. While one would expect these former Adventist ministers
to be both experts on Ellen White and accurate in their accusations, A Response to the Video
reveals that such is not the case at all.
A Response to the Video contains 239 replies organized
into the following sections:
- Initial Points

A Response to the Video gets right to the point on a
host of topics dealing with Ellen White, and Adventist history and teachings. No, Mrs.
White didn't plagiarize (and neither did Matthew, Mark, and Luke), and
there never was any lawsuit (pp. 75-77). Strangely enough, some of the
quotes attributed to her in the video either were from books she didn't write, were
altered, or don't exist (p. 13). Sometimes all you have to do is fill in a few
ellipses here and read a little context there to discover that the truth
is the opposite of the allegation (e.g. pp. 35, 36, 95, 96).
If the critics won't give you a balanced picture, then yes, you have to get the other side before
making a decision about Ellen White. And A Response to the Video is the easiest way for
you to do it. You'll also get some tools to use if you need to do further research: 1) basic questions
to ask the one making allegations, and 2) resources available for finding additional answers.
Some readers have found A Response to the Video so intriguing that they
couldn't put it down until they had read it through in its entirety.
From the back cover, hear what one prominent Baptist preacher had to say about Seventh-day
Adventists in 1987:
In a special sense the founders of your movement were people
to whom God spoke. He wanted to create a special witness so that the
rest of His church could look at the faithfulness of your movement. He
wanted the rest of the church to say, "We could learn from them. We
will be better people. We will be more obedient to our heavenly
Father, and our Saviour, because we have watched the walk of the
Adventists. We have watched the price they have paid. We have watched
as they have been ostracized, as they have been misunderstood, as they
have been slandered. But there will come a time when itís clear why
they have had to go through these rather narrow channels and difficult
And God will say, "Look. See these people? The rest of you
Who said that? You'll have to get the book to find out. Was he right?
