Facts Seventh-day Adventists
Won’t Tell You at Their Seminars

“SDA’s won’t always tell you that it is the SDA church that is sponsoring the seminars.

–SDA’s consider themselves to be the only true, remnant church. All others will be condemned in time.

–SDA’s will make your salvation dependent on observing the Saturday Sabbath, worshiping with them.

–If you receive Christ as your Savior through SDA’s, only your past sins are forgiven by grace up to that point.

–As an SDA you now enter a period of “investigative judgment” where every deed you do or don’t do is recorded for judgment day.

–As an SDA you will be judged even for “idle moments” where you could have been more obedient.

–As an SDA you will be encouraged to become a vegetarian.

–SDA’s will gloss over the scripture that says “...he who is weak in faith eats vegetables only...” (Romans 14:2).

–SDA’s will expect you to revere their founding prophetess, Ellen G. White, viewing her as having the “spirit of prophecy” referred to in the Bible book of Revelation.

–In spite of revering Ellen G. White, SDA’s won’t ordain women.

–SDA’s won’t tell you that EGW is a proven false prophetess. Her embarrassing early writings have been altered to cover this up.

–SDA’s won’t tell you that they once denied the Trinity. Left over from that time period is the heresy that Jesus Christ is Michael.

–SDA’s have attempted to incorporate this false doctrine of Jesus being Michael by manipulation of scriptures, so EGW can be correct in their eyes when she says Michael is an OT name for Jesus. Shades of Jehovah’s Witnesses!

–SDA’s won’t tell you that an early Adventist (Nelson H. Barbour) co-published with the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Both proved to be false prophets. False date-setting caused them to part company.

–SDA’s won’t tell you that early Adventists expected the literal second coming of Christ in 1843 and 1844 only to be disappointed.

–SDA’s won’t tell you that their 1844 “investigative judgment” teaching was born out of an attempt to cover over this false prophecy. Instead of repenting over this false date, the claim was made that Christ really came, but INVISIBLY in heaven.

–Their founder, Ellen G. White, prior to the failed prophecy, taught that the door to salvation was shut. This had to be reinterpreted and altered after the failure of 1844.

–A former SDA pastor, Walter Rea, examining the prolific writings of EGW, found that she had plagiarized most of what she had written, including drawings of her “visions” from other authors.

–The SDA Church has yet to reply to his challenge to prove that even 20% of her writings are original.

–The explanation of the SDA Church for her plagiarism, that there were no copyright laws back then does not excuse her “borrowing”.

–The SDA Church made this statement in their “Ministry” magazine of Oct. 1981 and has never retracted it.

“We believe the revelation and inspiration of both the Bible and Ellen White’s writings to be of equal quality. The superintendence of the Holy Spirit was just as careful and thorough in one case as in the other”.

–One former SDA Pastor reported that he was given a choice between the Bible or the writings of EGW. When he chose the Bible, he was excommunicated from the SDA church.

–Ellen G. White’s main emphasis was on diet. She taught “...if we subsist largely upon the flesh of dead animals, we shall partake of their nature”. (Counsels on Diet & Foods. p. 390 in some editions).

–SDA’s will gloss over the fact that the Apostle Paul had a different view stating, “Eat anything that is sold in the meat market, without asking questions for conscience’ sake”. (1 Cor. 10:25)

–Most of Ellen G. White’s concerns over diet were in an effort to control what she considered to be an excessive sex drive in the male.

–She devoted endless pages to discussing “secret vice” (masturbation) and blamed the practice for a wide range of diseases.

—Dr. Kellogg and his brother were influenced by EGW to create their famous cold cereal, not considered to be stimulating.

–Ellen G. White consulted a phrenologist to have the bumps on her head read. This was just another one of her strange “health” views.

–The SDA’s continue to cling to views similar to the Jehovah’s Witnesses, such as “soul sleep” and denying the reality of Hell. Jesus, however, taught more about hellfire than He taught about heaven.

–SDA's won't tell you that their new "Clear Word Bible" is really the teachings of Ellen G. White inserted right into the Bible text, so her heresies appear to be the word of God to the unwary.

–SDA's won't tell you that you will be required to lead a life of incredible legalism, attempting to keep the Old Law Covenant with all its restrictions.

–SDA's won't tell you that they need to rely heavily on the Old Testament since the New Testament teaches the fulfillment of the Law in Jesus Christ. We are now under grace, not the Law.

–SDA's teach that Christ did not completely atone for our sins on the cross of Calvary, in spite of the fact that He cried out "It is finished!". ( John 19:30 ).

–SDA's teach that we will have to stand in the presence of the living God for judgment without a mediator. (The Great Controversy).

–SDA's gloss over 1 John 21, which states "...And if any man sin, we have an advocate (mediator) with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous."

–To try to make their false prophecies on the 2300 days in Daniel work, SDA's misinterpret the Hebrew words "ereb boqer", for "days" into "years". However. these words literally mean "evenings-mornings". Obviously 2300 actual solar days of 24 hours each, not years as SDA's claim. This spoils 1844 and the “investigative judgment” theories.


SDA's often make every effort to appear "evangelical", joining in with inter-ministry groups and trying to "blend in" with the Christian community.

However, make no mistake about it, they believe they are exclusively correct because they recognize and follow Ellen G. White. Among themselves, they mock the Christian's beliefs, calling our concept of salvation, "cheap grace". They privately consider themselves to be spiritually superior to the rest of us.

All these facts can be documented.
