"The humanity of the Son of God is everything to us. It is the golden chain that blinds our souls to Christ, and through Christ to God."—Ellen White.
"The Immaculate Conception . . . contradicts the true humanity of Jesus and overthrows the good news of salvation: in fact, if Mary is outside the 'camp' where humanity is held captive by the Evil one, then the child which she has miraculously conceived will Himself also be born outside this camp: and then neither He nor His work will have relevance for men."
