The following are all quotes from The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan, from the Destruction of Jerusalem, to the End of the Conflict (commonly known today as SOP volume 4)
In talking about the Jews:
Their sufferings are often represented as a punishment visited upon them by the direct decree of God.
God does not stand toward the sinner as an executioner of the sentence against transgression; but he leaves the rejecters of his mercy to themselves, to reap that which they have sown.
In the presence of the assembled inhabitants of earth and Heaven takes place the final coronation of the Son of God. And now, invested with supreme majesty and power, the King of kings pronounces sentence upon the rebels against his government, and executes justice upon those who have transgressed his law and oppressed his people.
This is one of the biggest contradictions i can find in material with Ellen White’s name on the cover, after her husband’s death in 1881. The only bigger one i can think of are the quotes that the words in the Bible are inspired, then the one quote in Selected Messages that they are not inspired.
Does anyone have any input on this contradiction?
Someone is not going to relish standing before God in the day of Judgment, as a work that has, and is, destroying many honest souls has been perpetrated by tampering with the words God had his messenger write.
