Heavenly Trio in a Nutshell

Ellen White published “three living persons” twice in 1906. One was in a periodical (The Bible Training School) and the other in a pamphlet (Testimonies for the Church Containing Messages of Warning and Instruction to Seventh-day Adventists) and four times in subsequent publications.

People today are trying to act as if she did not control her own 1906 publications and are promoting a conspiracy theory that the “three living persons” quote is a corruption. Their theory has no credibility and the evidence is against them.

But is this true?

Where is the Holy Spirit?

If the Holy Spirit is really a co-equal, co-eternal personal “being” just like the Father and the Son as Trinitarians claim, then you need to reconcile why the mention of the Holy Spirit “Being” is conspicuously omitted in all of these following statements. If you’re honest with yourself, please check out these statements and consider whether you have a balanced view with respect to your theology that can fit these statements:

Who is the Spirit of Truth in John 16?

But did you know that the Spirit of Truth is actually the Spirit of Christ? Let’s take a look, shall we?
