Ellen White: Women have less vital force than men

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

More absurdities from Adventist prophetess Ellen White:

In her book, An Appeal to Mothers, p. 27, she gives this information concerning masturbation:

Females possess less vital force than the other sex, and are deprived very much of the bracing, invigorating air, by their in-doors life. The results of self-abuse in them is seen in various diseases, such as catarrh, dropsy, headache, loss of memory and sight, great weakness in the back and loins, affections of the spine, the head often decays inwardly. Cancerous humor, which would lay dormant in the system their life-time, is inflamed, and commences its eating, destructive work. The mind is often utterly ruined, and insanity takes place.

Note that she is inspired, with no difference in quality or degree of inspiration to that of the Bible:

We believe that Ellen White was inspired by the Holy Spirit and that her writings, the product of that inspiration, are applicable and authoritative, especially to Seventh-day Adventists. … We do not believe that the quality or degree of inspiration in the writings of Ellen White is different from that of Scripture.
