WE DON'T have any record of the wins and losses of the Battle Creek College Bruisers or what ever they called their football team. Neither do we know who won the boxing matches in the basement of the college building. But Ellen G. White's statements in relation to exercise and recreational activity are clear enough without these backgrounds. . .
Is the revelation and inspiration of both the Bible and the writings of Mrs. White of equal quality? Can we make a distinction between the "normative" authority of Scripture and the "formative" authority of Mrs. White's writings in our church?
