It is now becoming well known that the church's prophet, Ellen White, practiced deception: As reported by Walter Rea, in his book Pirates of Privilege, the first resort of SDA Church leaders when caught in the financial corruption of the Davenport scandal was to engage in deceit. When the leaders of a church organization practice deception, then deception becomes institutionalized, and the members eventually come to consider deception as less sinful than it really is.Elder Carter loved to hold crusades, and he would rent out public halls and advertise himself as an expert lecturer on archeology.He would never mention anything about Ellen White in his crusades, even though she was mentioned regularly in Sabbath School and church services at his church.
