What were Ellen White's statements regarding her view of Revelation
- is not the words of the Bible that are inspired, but the men that were inspired.
- inspiration acts not on the man's words or his expression but on the man himself, who, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, is imbued with thoughts.
- The writers of the Bible were God's penmen, not His pen.
- We believe the light given by God to his servants is by the enlightement of the mind, thus imparting the thoughts, and not (except in rare cases) the very words in which the ideas are expressed.
