If you identify yourself as a Seventh-day Adventist and you care about your church, sooner or later, if not already, you will find yourself and your church in an identity crisis. There are many groups of people identifying themselves as Seventh-day Adventists, yet they share divergent views on our most prominent doctrines, like the doctrine on God, the Sanctuary service, investigative judgment, etc. The objective of this book is to root Seventh-day Adventists in their original identity, the very identity God powerfully established in raising the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the beginning. We have had identity crises before; we had a big one in the time of Ellen White. This was the Kellogg crsis. As a response to this crisis, God provided the solution to every other crisis we would face in the future, through the writings of Ellen White. The solution is to harken unto the truths which we have received in the beginning of our movement. These truths are called the Pillars of our Faith. If we forget any pillar, the crisis will inevitably come—and we’re in one. We have forgotten one crucial pillar. This pillar is called “the personality of God”. It is an answer to the question, is God a person, and what is the quality that characterizes God to be a person?
Today, we most often answer this question differently than our pioneers have. This question touches different views of God, and offers several responses to the proclamation of the first angel in the fourteenth chapter of Revelation. But none should be left in darkness regarding this matter, since God gave abundant light in the beginning of our movement, and again approved it as the answer to the Kellogg crisis. The Spirit of Prophecy tells us that God will, again, approve this message in our time. Find out the answers and rediscover the true Adventist identity.
