    Kellogg, John Harvey — knowledge of God

    Kellogg, John Harvey (1852—1943)

    Physician, surgeon, inventor, and author. Kellogg was born into *John Preston Kellogg’s large family of seventeen children (although only nine survived to adulthood). James and Ellen G. White took an interest in J. H. Kellogg, who attended school with their own children. In 1873, the Whites urged him to attend R. T. Trall’s Hygieo-Therapeutic College in New Jersey, and later he continued his education at the University of Michigan and the Bellevue Hospital Medical College. At the age of twenty-four, he was appointed as superintendent of the *Health Reform Institute. He later renamed it the *Battle Creek Sanitarium, and under his leadership, it became world renowned. Ellen G. White had a close relationship with Kellogg, and after his mother died, she thought of him as another son. After the 1901 General Conference Session, he became involved in a conflict with denominational leaders. Ellen G. White tried to arbitrate and admonished both Kellogg and the church leaders. Kellogg took the Battle Creek Sanitarium out of denominational ownership and was disfellowshiped in 1906. He afterward became an outspoken critic of Ellen G. White’s prophetic ministry.EGWD Kellogg, John Harvey.2

    Kellogg, John Preston (1807—1881)

    Early Adventist from Michigan. Converted in 1852, Kellogg was part of a small group who pledged to build a publishing house in Battle Creek, Michigan, if *James White relocated from Rochester, New York. James White accepted the offer in 1855. He was a close friend of James and Ellen G. White and was a key financial supporter as the fledgling denomination developed.EGWD Kellogg, John Preston.2

    Kellogg, Merritt Gardner (1832—1921)

    Minister, physician, and missionary. He was the oldest son of *John Preston Kellogg to survive childhood; at the age of twenty, he converted to Adventism. In 1859, he traveled to California by wagon to do missionary *work. In 1867, he attendedEGWD Kellogg, Merritt Gardner.2

    Kilgore, Robert Mead (1839—1912)

    Minister and administrator. In 1877, he traveled to Texas as a self-supporting evangelist. In 1885, he became the Illinois Conference president. At the *General Conference Session of 1888, Kil-gore strongly resisted the *revival message brought by *A. T. Jones and *E. J. Waggoner. In his later years, he served in a variety of administrative posts, including leadership in the fledgling Graysville Academy (forerunner of Southern Adventist University).EGWD Kilgore, Robert Mead.2

    kingdom of God

    The rule or reign of God. Like many *Protestant Reformers, Ellen G. White highlighted that the kingdom of God was Christ’s rule over the *church, not the rule of civil government. She believed that the kingdom of God would reign after the *Second Coming, when the redeemed will spend a millennium in heaven before the restoration of God’s kingdom on the earth made new.EGWD kingdom of God.2

    King, George Albert (1847—1906)

    Colporteur. Originally from Toronto, he converted in his twenties and by 1879 worked in Texas. He later served in a variety of places and suggested the idea of selling Uriah Smith’s books Thoughts, Critical and Practical, on the Book of Daniel and Thoughts, Critical and Practical, on the Book of Revelation as an individual volume.EGWD King, George Albert.2

    kingly power

    An expression used by Ellen G. White, most often during the 1890s and early 1900s, to protest the con-trolling power of a single person, or small group of people, over the administration of the *church. She admonished in 1901 that “God has not put any kingly power in our ranks to control this or that branch of the work. The work has been greatly restricted by the efforts to control it in every line” (GCB Apr. 3, 1901).EGWD kingly power.2

    king’s dale

    A biblical location mentioned in Genesis 14:17 and 2 Samuel 18:18 that describes the “king’s dale,” or the “king’s vale,” as the name for “the valley of Shaveh” where the king of Sodom met Abram and where Absalom built a monument for himself (PP 744).EGWD king’s dale.2

    Kinney, Charles M (1855—1951)

    Early black minister. Born a slave in Richmond, Virginia, he worked in Reno, Nevada, as a youth. While there, in 1878, he attended a series of meetings held by *J. N. Loughborough, which included a lecture by Ellen G. White, and was subsequently baptized. He attended *Healdsburg College from 1883 to 1885, pastored in Topeka, Kansas, and by 1889 worked with black believers in St. Louis, Missouri. Kinney played an instrumental role in the development of the *work for black Americans. He organized several of the earliest black Adventist congregations and is considered the founder of black Adventism.EGWD Kinney, Charles M.2

    Knight, Anna (1874—1972)

    Leading black Seventh-day Adventist missionary and educator. She taught herself to read and obtained a *Bible by picking cotton. She was baptized in 1893 and studied nursing under Dr. *J. H. Kellogg. At the 1901 General Conference Session, she was sent as a missionary to India (the first black Adventist woman to do so).EGWD Knight, Anna.2

    knowledge of God

    The intellectual and experiential aware-ness of God. Ellen G. White believed, like many during the *Protestant Reformation, that there was a common distinction between a natural knowledge of God obtained through *general revelation and a saving knowledge of God received through *special revelation.EGWD knowledge of God.2
