TRUTH OR FABLES strives to provide an objective look at the teachings of Ellen G. White.
We provide resource material documenting inconsistencies within the doctrines of Adventism as well as showing its contradictions and additions to biblical teachings. Further, we expose Ellen White's failed visions and non-scientific health reform messages.
This site is helpful for Adventists, former Adventists, and the general public in providing documentation of the problems within Adventist dogma. It is also a call for honest repentance and change within Adventism.

Ellen White's books/testimonies contain a large amount of material Mrs. White and her group of college educated secretaries plagiarized from non-inspired authors. She had a library of 1200 books to copy from. Ellen White did not give credit for her sources, while she led her followers to believe the material she wrote came from the throne of God.
"In these letters which I write, in the testimonies I bear, I am presenting to you that which the Lord has presented to me. I do not write one article in the paper expressing merely my own ideas. They are what God has opened before me in vision--the precious rays of light shining from the throne." Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5 (1882-1889), page 67. See The White Lie by Walter Rea under Books.
"In turning from God's Word to feed on the writings of uninspired men, the mind becomes dwarfed and cheapened. It is not brought in contact with deep, broad principles of eternal truth. . . . " (Christ's Object Lessons p.41)
"When writing these precious books, if I hesitated, the very word I wanted to express the idea was given to me" (Selected Messages, vol. 3, pp. 51,52). 1907.
"....yet the words l employ in describing what I have seen are my own, unless they be those spoken to me by an angel, which I always enclose in marks of quotatio" (Review and Herald, Oct.8, 1867, quoted in Selected Messages,vol.1, p.37).
