Here is a table showing the differences of the truth God gave His remnant Church which were non-Trinitarian and the introduction of the word Trinity in the first Fundamental Beliefs in 1931, which was NOT even officially voted on until 1980.
This was done 16 years AFTER the death of Ellen White and after all the original pioneers were dead.
Ellen White wrote:
“And now, after half a century of clear light from the Word as to what is truth, there are arising many false theories, to unsettle minds. But the evidence given in our early experience has the same force that it had then. The truth is the same as it ever has been, and not a pin or a pillar can be moved from the structure of truth. That which was sought for out of the Word in 1844, 1845, and 1846 remains the truth today in every particular.” — (E.G. White, Letter 38, 1906)
It was in this three year period that the pillars of faith were established.
So more than 11 years after she supposedly became a Trinitarian, she states that the truths established in these first three years remained the same in every way still in 1906.
So why was it now possible in 1930 to write a new Fundamental Statement of Beliefs?
1.Uriah Smith became silent when he died in 1903.
2.Daniel Bordeau became silent at his death in 1905.
3.Ellen G. White became silent at her death in 1915.
4.Ellet J. Waggoner and Dr. David Paulson became silent when they died the following year in 1916.
5.Stephen N. Haskell became silent at his death in 1922.
6.Alonzo T. Jones became silent at his death in 1923.
7.John Norton Loughborough became silent at his death in 1924.
By the end of the 1930's the last remaining “old guard” pioneers had died and a new generation of Adventist leaders was coming into prominence. The timing was possible for the change in 1930 because certain individuals would not be able to sound an alarm. Their voices were now silent.
Their writings could still speak but this would not be as effectual as a live pioneer speaking in protest to the changes that began in 1926.
For many years the writings of pioneer Adventists were eliminated from the shelves of Adventist Book Centers. The writings of E.J. Waggoner and A.T. Jones had been virtually impossible to find until recent years. “Leaves Of Autumn Books” and other independent ministries are responsible for the restoration of pioneer Adventist writings being restored including to Adventist Book Centers.
In 1980, the General Conference voted on a new set of “27 Fundamental Beliefs” in which the trinity doctrine was upheld. Fundamental belief number 2 now read, “2. The Trinity. There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons.” (Emphasis).
The concept delineated here is that there are “three co-eternal Persons” and this part is in complete harmony with the Catholic Church's pagan teaching regarding the trinity.
In 1981, SDA General Conference President, Neal C. Wilson, announced to the General Conference meeting in Dallas, Texas, that the Church had officially adopted the trinity doctrine, which was now number 2 in the Church's “27 Fundamental Beliefs.” Wilson said, “There is another universal and truly catholic organization, the Seventh-day Adventist Church,” — (Adventist Review, March 5, 1981, p. 3)
I for one cannot disagree with his statement. As far as the three-in-one part of the trinity doctrine goes that says, the Father is God, Jesus is God, the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three gods but one God, they are now on par with the Catholic Church just as the Papacy and Satan had no doubt planned.
