Ellen G. White was amongst the pioneers of the Seventh-Day Adventist movement. She claimed to have over 2,000 visions and to be taken in vision to Heaven multiple times—even claiming to speak to Jesus himself. According to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, by the time she died, her writings came close to 100,000 pages which included 24 published books, 5,000 articles, and more than 200 informational leaflets.
Within the Adventist Church, she is seen as a New Testament prophet and her writings speak with “prophetic authority”, correcting “inaccurate interpretations of scripture derived from tradition, human reason, personal experience, and modern culture.” The problem is, she fails the pass the biblical test of a prophet (Deuteronomy 18:22). She did not originate any doctrines of the Adventist Church, but functioned as the movements prophetess who served as the “stamp of approval” from God when it came to the correct interpretations of scripture.
The Adventist Church promotes a number of myths about her, one of the biggest being that she is the most translated female author in the history of literature—which we have fact-checked here. The Adventist Church circulates this myth to bolster the legitimacy of God supposedly speaking through her and the move of God on their movement.
