DaveW - He did not mention White at all. Apparently they have some unusual beliefs on dietary issues? I am not interesting in join by no means. I do like to know who I am talking to and what they are sharing (pushing, selling, etc). Mormons and JHVW never touch on the major differences at first.
As to White - no they are not going to bring her up until later, after you are in.
As to food - they are vegetarian or vegan, but theoretically it is not a doctrine but a health issue. They also avoid caffene drinks like coffee and tea and pop. (taking drugs)
They do tend to treat it like a doctrine however.
So, then the stands on dietary standards, caffeine, and pop vary as well?
This has been an interesting read for me...I've often wondered because we know some who really seem to allow grace in the nonessentials of what to eat or drink (NOT day of worship, however...we just don't talk about it
and focus on what we have in common which is our love for the Lord) and I have never heard them reference E.White, only the word...BUT...we also know some who are SO strict about Sabbath they miss out on weddings, on kids performances at public school on a Friday night, STRICT dietary restrictions etc
