These quotes were written in regards to the book Living Temple by John Harvey Kellogg. Kellogg had misunderstood Ms. White’s words and started teaching the Trinity. Ms. White tells him God is a father, not a trinity. Read this heavenly trio quote in it’s context.

“I am instructed to say, The sentiments of those who are searching for advanced scientific ideas are not to be trusted. Such representations as the following are made: “The Father is as the light invisible; the Son is as the light embodied; the Spirit is the light shed abroad.” “The Father is like the dew, invisible vapor; the Son is like the dew gathered in beauteous form; the Spirit is like the dew fallen to the seat of life.” Another representation: “The Father is like the invisible vapor; the Son is like the leaden cloud; the Spirit is rain fallen and working in refreshing power.”
All these spiritualistic representations are simply nothingness. They are imperfect, untrue. They weaken and diminish the Majesty which no earthly likeness can be compared to. God can not be compared with the things His hands have made. These are mere earthly things, suffering under the curse of God because of the sins of man. The Father can not be described by the things of earth. The Father is all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, and is invisible to mortal sight.
The Son is all the fulness of the Godhead manifested. The Word of God declares Him to be “the express image of His person.” “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Here is shown the personality of the Father.
The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven, is the Spirit in all the fulness of the Godhead, making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Saviour. There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit– those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ. . . .” {SpTB07 62-63}

Now read it again with the Trinitarian view added……

Is this Heavenly trio quote really Trinitarian? Brackets added.

“All these spiritualistic representations are simply nothingness. They are imperfect, untrue. They weaken and diminish the Majesty which no earthly likeness can be compared to. God(The father, son, and holy spirit) can not be compared with the things His(The father, son, and holy spirit’s) hands have made. These are mere earthly things, suffering under the curse of God (The father, son, and holy spirit) because of the sins of man. The Father (Hmm, I thought he was a trinity) can not be described by the things of earth. The Father (Hmm, I thought he was a trinity) is all the fulness of the Godhead(The father, son, and holy spirit) bodily, and is invisible to mortal sight.

The Son is all the fulness of the Godhead(The father, son, and holy spirit) manifested. The Word of God(The father, son, and holy spirit) declares Him to be “the express image of His(The father, son, and holy spirit’s) person.” “God(The father, son, and holy spirit) so loved the world, that He (The father, son, and holy spirit) gave His(The father, son, and holy spirit’s) only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Here is shown the personality of the Father(Hmm, I thought he was a trinity).

The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven, is the Spirit in all the fulness of the Godhead(The father, son, and holy spirit), making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Saviour. There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit– those who receive Christ(the comforter) by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ. . . .”{SpTB07 62-63}

I have searched Ms. Whites writings and the scriptures and have yet to find a single instance where the title “God” is used to refer to “the father, son and holy spirit”. My faith comes by the word of God, and God expects to believe nothing outside of that word. Therefore I cannot believe in the holy trinity. It destroys the personality of our God and his son Jesus Christ as quoted from Ms. White. It destroys the love of the father and everything he gave to his son, and to us. It makes him an actor, pretender, liar, hypocrite and selfish since he really gave nothing to his son, and he’s not even really a father if the trinity is real, so he didn’t even give a son.

1Jn 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
