How do you fell about the Seventh-day Adventist Church?
I’m a Seventh-day Adventist myself and we believe in the Bible and everything we believe and stand for you can find it in the Bible and we do not leave anything out.
We go keep the Sabbath on Saturday.
We are waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy spirit.
those are the basics.
bar_enosh, yes it is completly biblical. Seventh-day Adventists don’t beleive in anything that isn’t biblical. “I am the father, son and the holy spirit” and “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” John 1:1 the word is Jesus.
Put on the Full Armor of God, it does not say anywhere in the Bible that God changed the Sabbath from saturday to sunday. It was the catholic church that changed it to show the people that they are above God, that they can even change the day of worship to sunday. The pope said that himself.
The law never cahnged. Why would he change it? Why would he just change this one? The Bible never said that now that he has died for our sins we no longer have to keep the WHOLE law.
We do not believe in hell !!
and NO adventists don’t make Ellen G. White more important than Christ. Maybe some, I don’t know. But that’s not true adventism. But everything she says is based on the Bible. and if you read her books you will see that she is always showing where you can find about that in the Bible.
Answer by Put on the Full Armor of God
I do not recommend attending the Seventh-day Adventist church. There are too many problems within Seventh-day Adventistism to recommend it as a safe church. Though there are Seventh-day Adventist groups that are within orthodoxy, there are too many of them that are not.
One of the problems with Seventh-day Adventism is Saturday worship. They are certainly free to worship on Saturday. That is not unbiblical. However, the problem is when any Seventh-day Adventist group asserts that the proper day of worship is Saturday, not Sunday. The early church practiced worship on Sunday and the scriptures mention the church gathering on Sunday, the same day Jesus rose:
* The Christians also heard a message from Paul on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7).
o Note: the reference is until midnight which is not the Jewish method of measuring days, but the Roman system.
* Paul instructed the churches to put aside contributions on the first day of the week (1 Cor. 16:2).
Furthermore, Romans 14:1-12 speaks of our freedom in Christ, particularly our freedom to worship on any day we choose.
I cannot recommend any church which would openly deny the biblical doctrine of predestination (in contradiction to Eph. 1:1-11), deny the doctrine of the immortality of the soul (in contradiction to Luke 16:19-31; Matt. 25:46), deny eternal hellfire (in contradiction to Rev. 14:11), that Jesus is Michael the Archangel,1 and that the wicked are annihilated (in contradiction to Luke 16:19-31; Matt. 25:46).
As it pertains to the Sabbath ?
In the Old Testament, God stated, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you,” (Exodus 20:8-10, NASB). It was the custom of the Jews to come together on the Sabbath, which is Saturday, cease work, and worship God. Jesus went to the synagogue on Saturday to teach (Matt. 12:9; John 18:20) as did the apostle Paul (Acts 17:2; 18:4). So, if in the Old Testament we are commanded to keep the Sabbath and in the New Testament we see Jews, Jesus, and the apostles doing the same thing, then why do we worship on Sunday?
First of all, of the 10 commandments listed in Exodus 20:1-17, only 9 of them were restated in the New Testament. (Six in Matt. 19:18, murder, adultery, stealing, false witness, honor parents, and worshiping God; Rom. 13:9, coveting. Worshiping God properly covers the first three commandments) The one that was not reaffirmed was the one about the Sabbath. Instead, Jesus said that He is the Lord of the Sabbath (Matt. 12:8).
In creation, God rested on the seventh day. But, since God is all powerful, He doesn’t get tired. He doesn’t need to take a break and rest. So, why does it say that He rested? The reason is simple: Mark 2:27 says, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.” In other words, God established the Sabbath as a rest for His people, not because He needed a break, but because we are mortal and need a time of rest, of focus on God. In this, our spirits and bodies are both renewed.
The OT system of Law required keeping the Sabbath as part of the overall moral, legal, and sacrificial system by which the Jewish people satisfied God’s requirements for behavior, government, and forgiveness of sins. The Sabbath was part of the Law in that sense. In order to “remain” in favor with God, you had to also keep the Sabbath. If it was not kept, then the person was in sin and would often be punished (Ezek. 18:4; Rom. 6:23; Deut. 13:1-9; Num. 35:31; Lev. 20:2, etc.).
But with Jesus’ atonement, we no longer are required to keep the Law as a means for our justification. The requirements of the Law were fulfilled in Christ. We now have rest from the Law. We now have “Sabbath”, continually.
