Kellogg Questions Ellen White’s Authority
An interview with Dr. J. H. Kellogg shortly before he was disfellowshiped
Shortly before Dr. J. H. Kellogg was disfellowshiped from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, he was interviewed by two church elders from the Battle Creek Church.
The purpose of their visit was to determine if Kellogg wished to continue as a church member or if, as rumored, he wished to be disconnected from the church. At the interview he made two points about Ellen White. First, not everything that went out with her signature is authentic revelation or testimony. Second, church leaders often misinformed her and manipulated her writings to suit their aims. It is important to note that this interview represents only his side of the issues.
