Adventist Teaching: Yes
Biblical Teaching: No
Ellen G. White falsely claimed that an old, tattered purple robe was placed on Jesus by Herod at his sentencing.
This contradicts the Bible which clearly says an elegant/splendid robe was placed on Christ before being sent back to Pilate (Luke 23:11). An elegant robe is not a tattered robe.
Because the Adventist Church is beholden to the writings of Ellen G. White, which they claim are divinely inspired and correct inaccurate interpretations of scripture, they are stuck having to own this contradiction. Ellen White also claimed that “whatever contradicts God’s Word, we can be sure proceeds from Satan.” We’ll let you connect the dots.
