Ellen White Era Contra a Bateria na Música Sacra? – Uma Resposta – Apêndice

A fim de compreender a posição da Sra. Ellen G. White acerca da condicionalidade das profecias, foi realizada em 06 de janeiro de 2011 uma pesquisa no acervo completo nos escritos publicados de Ellen G. White, através do site do White State americano, sendo que a consulta pode ser repetida por qualquer interessado, através do endereço e instruções descritas abaixo.

Para a finalidade que nos importa nesta réplica, destacamos os seguintes tópicos:

  1. Quando Deus prometeu prosperidade ao povo de Israel, esta promessa era condicional à sua obediência (ver itens nrs. 5, 9 e 19).
  2. A bênção do acesso à árvore da vida no Éden também era condicional à obediência do ser humano (ver itens nrs. 12 e 25).
  3. As bênçãos derramadas sobre Seu povo hoje também são condicionais (ver itens nrs. 3, 4 e 23).
  4. A promessa de que seremos, de forma pessoal, justificados e recebidos por Deus em Seu reino é condicional (ver itens nrs. 18, 20, 22, 26 e 29
  5. A brevidade de Sua volta é condicional (ver itens nrs. 1, 2, 15, 16 e 24), porém nunca a sua certeza!

A pesquisa foi propositalmente ampla, utilizando apenas uma palavra (“conditional“, ou seja, “condicional”) como parâmetro, a fim de trazer o maior número de resultados possível, permitindo uma visão geral do assunto nos escritos de Ellen G. White. Por este motivo, além dos itens utilizados no texto da réplica acima, a lista nos apresenta outros resultados não relacionados com este tema, mas que são explicados a seguir em benefício dos que tem alguma dificuldade com o idioma inglês:

– Perigo das promessas condicionais de casamento (itens nrs. 7, 8, 10, 11, 13 e 27)

– Crença condicionada a milagres (item nr. 6)

– Preservação da vida de uma tripulação condicionada à fidelidade ao dever (item nr. 14)

– Resposta condicionada a outra resposta (item nr. 17)

– Alguém que ensinava a imortalidade condicional (item nr. 21)

– Uma promessa condicional feita por Ellen White (item nr. 28)
