Unborrowed, Underived Life

Christ possessed original, unborrowed, underived life.  Does that mean he was not begotten?

“In Him [Christ] was life, original, unborrowed, underived. This life is not inherent in man. He can possess it only through Christ. He cannot earn it; it is given him as a free gift if he will believe in Christ as His personal Saviour.” (Ellen White, Signs of the Times, April 8, 1897; also in Selected Messages, book 1, pages 296, 297)

Note:  Please note that we also will possess original, unborrowed, underived life.  This does not mean that we are not adopted sons of God.  And this does not mean Christ was not the only begotten, nor does it mean he was not given it by his father. Joh 5:26  For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.  Original, unborrowed, underived life was given to him by his father.  And we also can possess original, unborrowed, underived life through Christ.  It is amazing how these quotes that have been used to support a Trinity doctrine were pulled from there natural connection to support it when there is so much evidence that she did not believe in a trinity.
