As you oc see from the above letter to Louise Kleuser, there is an agenda that was in the works in the past. This letter was written inbut the evil took place in This was under the guidance and encouragement of an Elder Branson.
Leroy Froom, Roy Allan Anderson and Louise Kleuser hand picked some select quotes that when comihg together, could be perceived as support for trinitarian belief to the novice, unsuspecting Adventist. These quotes were part of the compilation for the book called “Evangelism”. And they added sub-headings that were not Ellen White’s originals, and almost ALL the people would be fooled for decades. But cpming you match up everything she wrote on the subject matter which we have attempted to do under the headings “Evangelism” and “Ellen White” on this websiteit becomes clear what Ellen White believed.
And it puts holes in the agenda of Leroy Froom and friends. Coming late this year or early next year yhe be the revealing of hundreds and hundreds of Froom letters to be shared online. It will put less doubt into the history of the church and what you should believe today.
Now a letter from a very prideful man, Leroy Froom: You know what it did with men in the Columbia Union who came face-to-face with the clear, unequivocal statements of the Spirit of Prophecy on the Deity of Christ, personality of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, and the like. They either had to lay down their arms, and accept those statements, or else they had to reject the Spirit of Prophecy. I know that you R. Anderson and Miss Kleuser and I had considerable to do with the selection tthe these things under the encouragement of men like Elder Branson who felt that the earlier concept of the White Estate brethren on this book on Evangelism was not adequate.
They didn’t know how to combat these errors. When they saw this book, Evangelism, it seemed different than what they knew or believed. And Elder Froom says that they cming had to accept it, or reject the Spirit of Prophecy. Today people take a one or two line quote in Evangelism the way it is presented and have no idea that it was cropped from a bigger picture.
This is far from honest. But if we study the context from the original writings including all paragraphs, you can see the meaning behind the quotes is very different. He attempted to show that anti-trinitarian was: Questions on Doctrine is a book published by the SDA church in to help explain Adventism to conservative Protestants and Evangelicals.
We were trying to measure up to their brand of Christianity. In Questions on Doctrines, page 29, we read: While all were premillennialists, some were Trinitarian; others were Arian. This is only a partial truth. The facts are, while the Pioneers were from various denominational backgroundsonce becoming SDA, they all gave up their false Trinitarian beliefs.
And it could be argued that only a few were Arian to begin with. Not a belief they stayed with.

He then goes croom using social engineering to reprogram how some might think about our heritage in comparing what some views were by comforterr a stark picture of how letoy portrayed Christ, his existence and beginning or being begotten verses a wrongful idea of being created. Froom and the modern Adventist crew were trying to distance themselves from the foundation of our faith. On pages and of Movement of Destiny, he wrote: These statements were necessary to clear up the misconception of prior statements.
The disavow read in part: And we feel fromo should not be identified with or stigmatized for, certain limited and faulty concepts held by some, particularly in our formative years. What is going on here is that Froom and company are trying to distance themselves from the history and Pioneers of our church. Found in Questions on Doctrine is this additional material continuing on the above quote: What a shame to say that we are one with our fellow Christians of denominational groups.
Froom and the rest can call it Christian until the plagues fall. God calls it Babylon. And what authority do we have to call it Christian, when God calls it Babylon.

Sister White has this to say: Yielding principle and compromising truth is the center of the problem. Movement of Destiny was a clear attempt to rewrite our history and present the growth of the Adventist movement as an Evangelical character from its roots.
This book is an exhaustive study of the history of God’s Church in the wilderness and contained statements against the Catholic Church. Leroy Froom was angry about the book and ordered the destruction of the offset press plates so the book could not be reprinted. Wilkinson was 80 years of age at this point and could not afford to have the plates made again. Why would an Adventist do such a thing?
Something is very wrong here. Thankfully, you can find this book in reprint nowadays, or in pdf form on the internet and judge for yourself. We have included it in our drop down menu under “Books”. There are testimonies floating out there about the real history of Leroy Froom.
That of him, being a Catholic or Jesuit plant in our church. We are not selling that theory here, but brothers and sisters, we need to be very wise and skeptical in what takes place these days.
Wilkinson as the most dangerous man in this denomination. Wilkinson had very good reason for saying this, much to the disgruntlement of Froom.
The word Arian was used by Rome as a stigma. And that stigma would apply to anyone who would disagree with her Rome. It was like a theological slur. This had a real negative tone to it.
They were looked down upon. And ,eroy you are a lot bigger and the bully, you can paint whatever picture you want of someone and get most of them to believe it. The Council of Nicea in AD had this discussion and debate, asking themselves, how are we going to define our understanding of God. Father, Son and Spirit. The Papal party defined God in the way we just defined earlier, and that is Trinitarian.
And anyone who disagreed with them, or would not subscribe to their definition of that, would be referred to as Arian. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The Coming of the Comforter: LeRoy Edwin Froom: : Books
Leroy Edwin Froom – — Leroy Froom was best known in the Seventh-day Adventist church for his work as editor for several church publications, a church historian, secretary of the General Conference Ministerial Association, and author of several books.
He was also a musician. Froom was born in Belvedere, Illinois. There are mixed stories about Leroy Froom along with a connection to the Catholic church. History shows he had a yearning to cross the divide between us and the others and unite the Adventist church with Evangelicals and just about anyone else. But for now, we will delve into his writings and actions and you will see some real efforts by him, trying to bring the Trinitarian doctrine into the Adventist church.
This was already being influenced by Herbert Lacey with other traces coming from A. Leroy Froom would be one of a few key individuals that would succeed in this mission. The movement to adopt Trinitarianism and to become like the rest of the world was on.
Ellen White predicted that “books of a new order would be written. The Coming of the Comforter was published. In this book, Froom teaches the false doctrine of the Trinity and, as John Harvey Kellogg did before him, he uses Ellen White quotes to substantiate his position. At the time of the writing, Froom did not mention that he received help from Babylon in producing his book.
What does Babylon symbolize? Confusion, false doctrine, false worship, paganism. It was over forty years later before he would confess strangely in his book called Movement of Destiny on page When, back between and.
I was asked by our leaders to give a series of studies on the Holy Spirit, covering the North American union ministerial institutes ofI found that, aside from priceless leads found in the Spirit of Prophecy, there was practically nothing in our literature setting forth a sound Biblical exposition in this tremendous field of study. There were no previous pathfinding books on the question in our literature.
I was compelled to search out a score of valuable books written by men outside of our faith—those previously noted—for initial clues and suggestions, and to open up beckoning vistas to intensive personal study.
Having these, I went on from there. But they were decided early helps. And scores, if not hundreds, could confirm the same sobering conviction that some of these other men frequently had a deeper insight into the spiritual things of God than many of our own men then had on the Holy Spirit and the triumphant life. It was still a largely obscure theme. So Froom goes to authors of books outside of our faith.
In other words, he went to Babylon to see what they said about the topic and he brought this influence into our church thru his writings. Nothing would match up with his opinion, belief or agenda. In all troom, he found absolutely nothing. Herbert Camden Lacey, April 13, Here is just a glimpse of a seed being planted, showing doubt about the founders of our church.
