We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Did They Really Say That?

The blood of Christ, while it was to release the repentant sinner from the condemnation of the law, was not to cancel the sin; it would stand on record in the sanctuary until the final atonement.  Ellen G. White 1890, Patriarchs and Prophets, p.357.
At the time appointed for the judgment - the close of the 2300 days, in 1844 - began the work of investigation and blotting out of sins.  Ellen G. White 1888, Great Controversy, p.486.
According to E.G. White, repentance of sins does not free you from them, instead they are just moved to another book for judgment until your life ends; there is no assurance of salvation.
However, the Scripture plainly teaches that you are saved the moment you repent of your sins and place your faith in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus.  The sins are forgiven by Him and not held against you later.
I would suggest Seventh-day Adventists review what the Bible says about this in the following passages:
Psalm 103:12
Isaiah 43:25
Jeremiah 31:34
Ephesians 1:7
Colossians 2:13-14
Hebrews 8:12; 13:12
1 John 1:7,9; 2:2; 4:10
Ellen White plainly contradicted Scripture and was a false prophet.

The idea that my sins were just moved to another book of judgment is not very good news to me!

Of course we would need to debate with many church goers whether sin is really an issue. To paraphrase, "Hell hath no furry like a sinner waking up and finding he was wrong."

Grace and peace.
