Razlike između adventista i kršćana

Adventisti sedmog dana protiv kršćana

Većina ljudi misli da su sve protestantske crkve iste, ali zapravo nisu. Jedna posebna skupina koja se smatra drugačijom od drugih kršćanskih organizacija je adventist sedmog dana ili SDA. U biti, njihova su učenja ukorijenjena u Isusovim djelima kako je opisano u Bibliji, što je isto sa svim kršćanskim skupinama, ali imaju različita uvjerenja i prakse.

Najuočljivija razlika između adventista sedmog dana i drugih kršćanskih crkava je dan koji su odredili za bogoslužje. Katolici i druge kršćanske sekte koriste nedjelju kao dan zajedništva, dok je članovi SDA radije održavaju subotom. Vjeruju da je ovo dan subote ili vrijeme kada se Bog odmarao nakon što je stvorio svijet i sva živa bića.

Druge kršćanske skupine koriste Bibliju kao jedinu referencu za svoja učenja i prakse, što se razlikuje od članova SDA koji također proučavaju djela jedne od svojih osnivačica Ellen G. White. Ova praksa otvorila je put drugim vjerskim organizacijama da ih označe kao kult koji oni spremno poriču. Kultovi su vjerske skupine, ali umjesto štovanja božanskog Bića, oni se usredotočuju na vjerovanja i učenja svog vođe koji ga učinkovito imenuju svojim spasiteljem.

SDA također navodi njihove korijene kao veliku razliku između njih samih i većine kršćanskih crkava. Općenito, sve se kršćanske skupine smatraju pripadnicima protestantskog pokreta koji je prvi uspostavio Martin Luther koji je tražio neovisnost od Katoličke crkve. To je iznjedrilo mnoge skupine poput: luterana, metodista i prezbiterijanaca, između mnogih drugih. U biti, protestantske crkve potječu iz katoličanstva, ali su SDA iznikle iz protestantskih uvjerenja.

Postoje i velike razlike u uvjerenjima SDA -e i vjerovanja drugih kršćana. Članovi SDA ne vjeruju u ideju da ljudska duša može živjeti vječno suprotno od onoga što kršćani propovijedaju. Oni također na koncept spasenja gledaju drugačije od drugih kršćana. Za njih, Bog procjenjuje život osobe dok je još živa, što je u izravnoj suprotnosti s onim što većina kršćanskih učenja kaže da će Bog suditi pri ulasku na vrata Neba.

Praksa članova SDA također se razlikuje od ostalih kršćana. Kršćani odvraćaju članove od poroka poput pića i pušenja, ali im to ipak dopuštaju. S druge strane, za SDA to je neprihvatljivo. Članovima SDA također je zabranjeno jesti crveno meso jer bi to moglo ukaljati dušu. Kršćani mogu jesti gotovo sve što požele sve dok ih nema u višku.

Odjeća za bogoslužje također je velika razlika između članova SDA i kršćana. Dok obje skupine obeshrabruju članove da tijekom bogoslužja nose neprikladnu odjeću, SDA su stroži u primjeni kodeksa odijevanja poput dugih ženskih haljina i hlača za muškarce. No, unatoč razlikama u uvjerenjima i praksi, i SDA i kršćanska religija zagovaraju štovanje Boga kroz Isusa i život bez grijeha.

Sažetak: 1. SDA -i klanjaju subotom, dok kršćani obično služe nedjelju. 2. SDA također koriste djela Ellen White kao reference osim Biblije, dok kršćani sva svoja učenja temelje na Svetoj knjizi. 3. Kršćanska religija potječe iz Katoličke crkve, dok su SDA rođene iz protestantskih uvjerenja. 4. SDA ne vjeruju u besmrtnost duše, dok kršćani vjeruju. 5. SDA vjeruju da se ljudima sudi dok su još živi, ​​dok kršćani misle da se to događa nakon smrti. 6. SDA ne dopuštaju članovima da piju alkohol, puše ili jedu crveno meso. Kršćani imaju slobodu jesti ono što vole te povremeno piti ili pušiti. SDA također imaju strože kodekse odijevanja u odnosu na kršćane.

  1. Tko god je ovo napisao, očito nije napravio svoju zadaću ... Crkva SDA jedina je crkva koja može potkrijepiti sve u što vjeruje iz Svetog pisma, gdje nedjeljne crkve ne mogu jer jednostavno ne proučavaju dovoljno Bibliju da znaju što je tamo napisano ... Katolička crkva bira i bira ono u što želi vjerovati, a u što ne želi vjerovati. Savršen primjer: usporedite 10 zapovijedi katoličke crkve s izvornih 10 zapovijedi Biblije. Nazovite crkvu kultom ako želite, ali nemojte biti ljubomorni što ne možete razlikovati dobro od lošeg, što niste u stanju razumjeti Bibliju u najvećoj mjeri, jer.

    1. SDA vjeruju da je subota subota jer je subota sedmi dan u tjednu u kojem se Bog odmarao od svog posla kako bi se „odmorio“. Isus je subotu obilježavao kao subotu. Isus je uskrsnuo iz mrtvih nakon što je u nedjelju razapet (prvi dan u tjednu-vidi Matej 28: 1), zbog čega slavimo “Uskrsnu nedjelju” koja dolazi. Katolička crkva priznaje da je subotu promijenila sa subote na nedjelju. Također vole mijenjati stvari 2. Crkva SDA temelji se na sola scriptura (spisi Ellen White, ako se uopće koriste, služe samo za nadopunu biblijskog učenja). Ona ne proturječi ničemu što je zapisano u Bibliji, već se uzima kao "komentar" onoga što Biblija kaže ako želite. Smatra se "manjom svjetlošću", s tim što je "veće svjetlo" Biblija. 3. Bez komentara. 4. Propovjednik 9: 5 kaže da “mrtvi ne znaju ništa”. Ako je to slučaj, kako duša može biti živa. Biblija uspoređuje smrt sa "spavanjem" sve dok Isus ne dođe uskrsnuti mrtve. Nema govora o tome da održavate svoje duše živima i odmah odete na nebo i da članovi obitelji gledaju odozgo ... Taj koncept je stvorio čovjek ... 5. Odakle u svijetu to ste dobili? Jedina osoba koja sudi je sam Bog. Ne budite glupi i dopustite ljudima na ovom svijetu, uključujući i pastire, da vas osuđuju ... 6. Istina, ali s dobrim razlogom, zdravlje. Pogledajte Levitski zakonik 11 za ono što Sveto pismo kaže o čistom i nečistom mesu ...

    • Imate neke inteligentno istaknute stvari i da, u nekima ste u pravu, ali Sveto pismo kaže, odsutni s tijela, prisutni s Gospodinom. O da, o tome što je dobro čisto, a što nije, Isus je rekao da se ne dobiva iz hrane, a sada je sva hrana čista.

    • Pitanje za ljude iz SDA: Zar vi ljudi ne vjerujete u besmrtnost duše? Ako da zašto? Ako ne zašto?

      • u redu, prijatelju, vjerujemo da će nam jednom kad umremo dušom ili se život vratiti samom Bogu, baš kao i način na koji je Bog dao život Adamu na početku .... vidi Postanak 2: 7 I Gospodin Bog je stvorio čovjeka od praha zemaljskog, i udahnuo mu u nosnice dah života; a čovjek je postao živa duša. pa se dah života ili duše vraća Bogu, ali naše se tijelo vraća u prah …… vidi Bog ima plan za tebe i mene… ..svi se životi vraćaju samome Bogu pa čekamo drugi dolazak Krista na Sudnji dan ……

        • Postoji razlika između duše i duha. Duh ne umire, nego se vraća tvorcu koji nam je dao tako slobodno da vršimo njegovu volju. Naša je duša naš karakteristični sastav koji opisuje tko smo. Zato nam đavao juri za dušom, a ne za Duhom. Potražite dušu i duh i vidjet ćete da imamo dušu i Duha.

          • poznaje li adventist sedam dana sveti duh ??? i koristiti ga ??

          • Ono što Lawrence kaže isto je apsolutno je istina da postoje tri osobe: jedan Bog otac sin i znanje i razumijevanje Duha Svetoga jučer danas i sutra to se rastavlja u trojke po cijeloj Bibliji mi smo tijelo na ovoj zemlji prah u prah naša je duša naše srce i naš um koji zaključuje da ili ne ispravno ili pogrešno ovo ili ono naša slobodna volja naš duh je ono što zaista jesmo. Bog kaže da je on Duh i oni koji ga štuju moraju ga štovati u Duhu i u istina i da je on nagrađivač onih koji ga marljivo traže ovo je Božja riječ da je usporedba ono što je po njegovom Duhu koji se otkucava čovjek ne čovjek razmišlja i sastavlja stvari Biblija sama kaže da nije od osobno tumačenje čovjeka da je to Bog i njegov Duh koji nas vodi i vodi nas u svu istinu za koju je Krist ostavio da nam pripremi mjesto za povratak. Također mi pokazujete u Bibliji gdje se kaže da Isus nije obavio dovoljno dobar posao pa je morao otići na nebo i učiniti svetišta poput muškaraca koji su radili ovdje na zemlji kao katolici kako bi pokrili grijehe ljudi koje je Isus umro i prolio njegova krv na tom križu kad je rekao da je gotovo, da je dovršen, ne mora više raditi na nebu da bismo bili spašeni, ne moramo držati subotu da bismo se spasili, sve što trebamo učiniti je priznati Krista kao naš Gospodine naš Spasitelj i za ono što je učinio za sve nas i mi smo spašeni posvećeni i oslobođeni krvlju janjeta koja je pomirenje za sve naše grijehe nismo spašeni djelima spašeni smo milošću po vjeri milost je nemjerljiva usluga što znači da to nismo zaslužili nismo je zaslužili, ali Bog je slobodno dao svog Sina poslavši svog Sina da bude ta živa žrtva koju više ne treba učiniti. Pretražite Sveto pismo i sami ćete se uvjeriti da ne dodajete niti oduzimate moju riječ jer je to za mene odvratnost koja je odvratna u očima Boga. Ellen G White je to učinila, a također je bila i plagijator i govorili su lažna vremena lažni dani u koje je trebao doći Krist da je crkva osnovana na čovjeku, a ne na Bogu, baš kao što je mormonsku crkvu osnovao čovjek, a ne Bog, i to će doći do kraja kad se otkrije, ali do tada Isus kaže ako oni nisu protiv mene, onda me ostavite tu. Ali najveća stvar koju želim istaknuti je da neprijatelj koristi ove vrste stvari posebno ovih posljednjih dana da zadrži ljude od Krista. To nema nikakve veze sa spasenjem. Ti ideološki argumenti i osnove čovjeka, ovo nije od Boga, ovo nije ono Isus je došao prije nego što je došao da se volimo da razumijemo i znamo da je ljubav velika agape ne file ili ne Rozier nije mač J nego pobožni ljubavni argumenti i osnove čovjeka ovo nije od Boga ovo nije ono što je Isus došao jer je došao da imamo život i da ga imamo obilnije da je obilje početak sredina i kraj koji je početak njegove službe poznavajući mudrost i znanje koje je razumljivo za brigu o ljubavi pokazalo da ćete biti važni pokazati da pripadate pokazati da postoji svrha života koji vam daje ovo je ono o čemu govori, ali ako pretražite Sveto pismo vidjet ćete to, ali ako to ne učinite, neće reći niti uho nije čulo niti je ljudsko srce shvatilo stvari koje je Bog pripremio za one koji ga ljube, ali ipak nam je otkrio dubine Božje po svom duhu, naša pravednost prema čovjeku je glupost, ne kaže li Biblija da će Bog upotrijebiti prisiliti stvari svijeta da zbunjuju mudre smo njegov glas mi smo njegove posude mi smo ništa drugo nego čovjek kad sereš priznao Krista Isusa kao svog Gospodina i Spasitelja i ti osim njega u svoje srce ako si umro jednu minutu nakon toga bit će važno što ste držali subotu, bit će važno jeste li jeli meso ili ne, bit će važno jeste li nekome dali novac ili ne znate da to nema veze jer kad priznate Krista, grijesi vam se opraštaju i zaboravljen pod krvlju Krist vam više ne drži što je rekao Mariji kad ju je čovjek ulovio u činu preljuba navodno je rekao Marija gdje su vam tužitelji rekla je nitko Gospodine on kaže onda niti vas optužujem da idete i griješite ne više . Ta Božja izjava bila je iz njegovih vlastitih usta do njezina srca i ona je to vidjela i osjećala se nisko pa si nije mogla pomoći nego voljeti i poštivati ​​ono što je on tako rekao od tada joj je život služio i častio ga u njoj život ovo je ono što je učinila mi smo ljudska bića griješit ćemo Isus je rekao riječ koju je rekao dolazim po bolesne ne dolazim po ozdravljene on ne dolazi po ljude koji sve imaju zajedno koristiti sastanak s njim ako nemaju životnu brigu potrebna je jer dolazi zbog izgubljenih ljudi koji su bili zlostavljani koji su u ropstvu koje je neprijatelj lagao i od ljudi koji su bili pogođeni dolazi iz tog razloga i samo ovaj razlog koji nam pomaže da shvatimo da smo svi obitelj svi mu pripadamo on je kralj kraljeva Gospodar gospodara Knez mira Veliki sam ja i ako je to doista tako, to je u njegovoj riječi rekao si da nisam čovjek kojeg bih lagao u svojoj Riječi ne vraća se ništa, što znači da smo djeca Kraljeva mi smo kraljevski pripadamo po cijeni mi pripadamo kao njegova djeca cijeli ovaj svijet sve na njemu je naše da smo samo znali tko smo prestali smo se boriti među sobom i počeli izlaziti tamo i voljeti svoju braću i sestre i razumjeti ih ali radi se samo o Kristu i samo njemu. Zato je spasenje donijeto na prvom mjestu, sve je samo u Kristu i samo u njemu je razlog zašto je Adamu dano prvi dah. Ovdje se radi o iznošenju prave ljubavi i pravog duha i pravog značenja ono što je Bog mislio zajedno Levitski zakon je bilo 10 zapovijedi koje je trebalo ustanoviti kako bi čovjek mogao vidjeti da postoji pravilo Božje ruke nakon toga da je milost Isus Krist da je milost donesena na ovu zemlju ta milost pomaže nam razumjeti i vidjeti da je Isus sada pomirenje za 10 zapovijedi, a sve te druge stvari slušamo iz ljubavi i poštovanja prema Bogu, a ne kao diktator koji ima klub koji se sprema Kao da o 10 zapovijedi govore katolici ili o 10 zapovijedi govore sedam dana, adventisti, druge različite religije i različiti kultovi, a također i takve stvari koje rade vani rade ono što žele učiniti sami sebi nisu njihov Bog. Isus je jasno rekao da svojim djelima ne dolazite u nebo, morate se roditi nanovo, a spašavanje nije samo držati subotu

          • Amen, ovo mi se sviđa, to je istina. Ovdje provjeravam ovu temu zbog mlade dame koja je adventistkinja. Objasnio sam joj istu stvar o razlici u vremenu od profita iz starog testa do nadolazećeg Isusa vještica ispunjenje novog milošću Božjom Isus je rekao da sam put istine i života koji nitko ne komentira ocu osim istinitog mene. Njegov sasvim jasan Isus je Božji sin i ne možemo se spasiti samo njegovom milošću, a ne djelima i čovjek bi se trebao hvaliti. Govori protiv vjernika u nedjelju i kaže da ćemo ići u pakao. Nikada jednog dana nisam čuo svog pastora kako kaže da o njima jedno naučim riječ Božju, da će to biti iznenađenja na nebu, to mi govori ono što ti kažeš, mi nismo sudac, Bog sam, ja sam, ja sam, on je onaj koji određuje tko ide u raj ili pakao pa volim ovaj stav koji iznesete neka stane i objavi riječ istine koja je naš Gospodin i spasitelj Isuse Krist.

          • Pa što je s interpunkcijama koje sam razumio i Amen!

          • Mislim da se ti i ja slažemo da je Isus ono što kaže da jest. On je Istina Put i Život! Vaš komentar je teško čitati zbog nedostatka interpunkcije i pogrešno napisanih riječi Bog vas blagoslovio. ..Garth

          • Kao ponovno rođeni kršćanin razumijem na što mislite, ali vrlo je teško pročitati vaš komentar. Bez interpunkcijskih znakova sve je zajedno zabavno. Da, Isus je dovršio djelo spasenja, ne namjerava da mu mi na bilo koji način pomognemo, držeći subotu, uzdržavajući se od određene hrane ili bilo kakvih dobrih djela. Ne uspijevamo na našem ranom putu pokušavajući držati 10 zapovijedi, one su tu da nam pokažu što je grijeh .. Hvala Bogu što je naš Spasitelj ako prihvatimo Isusa kao svog Otkupitelja .. Hvalite Gospodina. Sada se molimo da Bog slijepcima otvori oči za evanđeosku poruku i da bude spašen od Božjeg gnjeva koji dolazi, kao i pomoć od Duha Svetoga dok smo još živi ovdje. Ostanite blizu našeg Spasitelja i budite blagoslov drugima ... Sestra u Kristu.

          • Da, što je rekao! ☝️✝️

          • Amen!! Ja i Duh (Sveti) u meni slažemo se sa svime što kažete. Ovo je ISTINA evanđelja Isusa Krista. Kad ZNATE ISTINU, ISTINA će vas osloboditi. Isus je NAČIN ISTINE I ŽIVOTA. Vječno.

          • Molimo vas da pomognete s biblijskim stihovima

    • Richarde, potpuno se slažem s tobom brate.

    • Da Richarde, ali ne znam da adventisti slave Uskrsnu nedjelju.

    • Vjerujem da su SDA sljedbenici Krista i predani, ali mnoga njihova uvjerenja koja slijede su iz starog saveza. Krist je sišao kako bi ispunio stari savez, zakone i zapovijedi. Nova zapovijed je iz Luke 10:27 'Ljubi Gospodina, Boga svojega, svim srcem svojim, svom dušom svojom, svom snagom svojom i svim umom svojim'; i: 'Ljubi bližnjega svoga kao samoga sebe.

      • Rimljanima 13:10 „Ljubav bližnjemu ne šteti. Stoga je ljubav ispunjenje zakona. "

        Ivan 13:34 „Novu vam zapovijed dajem: ljubite jedni druge. Kao što sam ja volio vas, tako morate voljeti jedni druge. ”

      • Samo pročitajte Mateja 5:17. Što je Krist rekao o deset zapovijedi. Nebo i zemlja mogu nestati, ali čak ni točka ili zarez neće nestati iz zakona.

    • Da, tko je ovo napisao nije u redu ja sam adventist sedmog dana i nešto od toga nije istina moja crkva ne prsi gđu.bijelu to samo opravdava da je ona phrofit vjerujemo u sina čovječjeg i Boga nije bio kult dobro je jesti zdrava i u Bibliji jasno stoji da ste uvijek trijezni ili će vas vrag proždriti potičem ljude da tamo istraže sebe Adventist 7. dana je prava crkva.

      • Varate se! To apsolutno nije religija zasnovana na Bibliji. Savez je ispunjen, a mi živimo u Novom zavjetu. Razdoblje! Nedjelja je klanjanje i odmor! Isus je okrenuo 2 vode i udio u Bibliji. Jedino upozorenje nije bilo pijenje za procjenu. U Novom zavjetu nema ničega što se tiče konzumiranja crvenog mesa. Kao što sam rekao, ovo nije religija zasnovana na Bibliji, koristite knjigu koju je napisao muškarac ... zapravo žena. Što postavlja sasvim drugi problem temeljen na 2. Timoteju. Žena nikada ne bi trebala poučavati muškarce! Vaša religija je zastarjela/ nije stvarna/ vjerojatno je kult.

      • Vau, stvarno govore da ih nisam pročitao, samo sam pogledao naslov, dok oni zaista ne govore o adventistima sedmog dana ako ne znate ništa o adventističkoj vjeri i sram ih bilo što su ovo nazvali nekršćanima nekršćanska stvar za učiniti

    • Mislim da Boga nije briga je li subota ili nedjelja. Briga ga što smo jedan od sedam dana odvojili za bogoslužje.

      • Slažem se! Zapravo, SVAKOG JEDNOG DANA štujem svog Gospodina Boga Spasitelja Isusa Krista!

      • Prava LaDonna. Vraća se po crkvu. Ne vjeroispovijest ili religija nego crkva.

      • Tako ja razmišljam

      • LaDonna u Postanku kaže da je Bog SLAVIO sedmi dan. Očigledno je da je On ovo odredio jedan dan, dan važniji od ostalih, mnogo prije bilo kakvog saveza. Stoga je očito važno koji je dan Njegov sveti dan. Trebalo je zauvijek stajati.

        • Jack, u pravu ste i nemaju pojma o tome da je zakon prikovan na križ budući da je svijet Mojsije spominje li riječ orgdin veza s Mojsijem koja je napisana Mojsijevom rukom, a ne deset zapovijedi koje je napisao Bože što izgleda ne shvaćaš, ceremonijalni zakoni su ukinuti

        • Ne zamjerite što je posljednja poruka bila malo kodirana jer ovdje nema mogućnosti uređivanja pretpostavljam dok ovaj administrator ne odobri ovaj komentar pretpostavljam

    • Provjerite s rimokatolicima koji poučavaju o zakonima i običajima..i zašto to čine..Nadam se da će vam dati kratku verziju..ne rušimo svoju vjeru i bibliju..kao mnogi protestanti ..

    • Vrlo dobro zapažen moj brat. Kad bi ljudi posvetili više vremena čitanju Riječi, Biblije, shvatili bi da SDA, također kršćani kakvi vjerujemo u Krista, propovijedaju, proučavaju i prakticiraju ono što postoji u Bibliji.

    • Vjerujete li u pakao?

    • Napisano je. Svo meso daje se čisto

    • Koliko sam shvatio, Krist nam dopušta da jedemo gotovo sve osim životinja s određenim papcima, poput konja i isprepletenih nogu. Ispravi me ako griješim. Isus je pomalo promijenio nekoliko stvari iz Starog zavjeta.

    • Kultovi stvaraju ljude da budu u obrani. Samo vjerujte da je Isus vaš spasitelj. On vas voli i prihvaća ga u vašem srcu i čita samo njegovu riječ, a sveti duh će vas voditi. Bog ne postavlja zahtjeve. On nas prihvaća bez obzira na sve. Oprašta nam bez obzira na sve. Bez osude.

    • Richarde, citiraš Propovjednika 9: 5, ali kako si se tu zaustavio? samo pročitaj sljedeći stih što kaže? pod suncem. Pročitajte i ono što Isus govori o bogatašu i Lazaru u Luki 16. Također Filipljanima 1:23

    • Htio bih komentirati #3. Ja sam ponovno rođeni kršćanin. Moja uvjerenja nisu dolazila iz katoličke religije. Katolička religija je vjera kompromisa kako bi se umirilo Rimsko Carstvo. Tu su božanska slavlja dobila demonska imena poput Uskrsa nazvana po bogu demona Ištara, a Mesijin rođendan promijenjen je u vrlo sotonski dan koji su slavili pogani. To se dogodilo i s danima u tjednu, kao što se naziva prvi dan u tjednu nedjeljom u čast boga sunca i štovanja sunca. Noć vještica je još jedna velika razlika i cijela studija za sebe.

      Kao ponovno rođeni kršćanin živim svoj život bez religije. Moja uvjerenja NE proizlaze iz katoličkih uvjerenja. Moja uvjerenja izravno su iz Svete Biblije. Moj se život fokusira na osobni odnos s Bogom i priznavanje svog stvoritelja kao duha koji sve zna, sve je moćno i svugdje u isto vrijeme cijelo vrijeme. Vjerujem da je Isus Krist Božji duh koji prebiva u tijelu Krista, a Duh Sveti je onaj Božji duh koji je poslan da prebiva u nama da nas ojača i pouči svemu u duhu. Krist je došao umrijeti umjesto mene kako bih mogao biti oslobođen kazne za svoje grijehe, a također i da se moji grijesi mogu ukloniti iz mog života čineći me besprijekornom i pravednom od grijeha. To uopće nije ništa poput katoličanstva. Kršćanstvo izravno potječe od Židova. Isus Krist, točnije. Budući da je Isus rođen od židovske djevice Marije. Katoličanstvo je vjerojatno najveći kult na svijetu.

    • Ustao je iz mrtvih u nedjelju.

      U nedjelju rano ujutro, kad je novi dan svanuo, Marija Magdalena i druga Marija izašle su posjetiti grob. Odjednom se dogodio veliki potres! Jer anđeo Gospodnji sišao je s neba, otkotrljao kamen i sjeo na njega. Matej 28: 1-2 NLT

    • Hebrews 4: 9-10 Dakle, ostaje subotni odmor za Božji narod, jer tko god je ušao u Božji počinak, odmarao se i od njegovih djela kao što je Bog od njegovih.

      Colossians 2: 16-17 Stoga neka vas nitko ne osuđuje u pitanjima hrane i pića, niti u vezi svetkovine, mladog mjeseca ili subote. To je sjena budućih stvari, ali tvar pripada Kristu.

      Rimljanima 14: 5 Jedna osoba cijeni jedan dan boljim od drugog, dok druga cijeni sve dane. Svatko bi se trebao potpuno uvjeriti u svoj um.

      Matej 12: 8 Jer Sin je Čovječji gospodar subote. "

      Matej 11: 28-30 Dođite k meni svi koji ste umorni i opterećeni i ja ću vas odmoriti

    • Smiješno je da ljudi žele mrziti na sta, pa nismo kršćani jer je pratio puni Emmettov spremnik, nisam ja kriv što možete pronaći čitanje za 9, ali ne i zadnji kao što je ajde sad izbacite glavu iz dupe ja mogu pronaći tone svetih spisa u Novom i Starom zavjetu koji kažu da bismo trebali i dalje držati subotu ako je bilo što od adventista sedmog dana najkršćanskije

    • Volio bih da mi se sviđa vaš komentar jer je istina da ljudi ne znaju ništa o adventistima ne znaju ništa o pravom kršćanstvu i pokušavaju pokazati prstom Ellen G white je bila u pravu preziru ono što je napisano u istini pa gledaju mi smo poput neprijatelja i sve što radimo je slijediti deset zapovijedi i pokušati naučiti druge da rade isto. Ja kažem da nismo kršćani, molim vas gdje većina kršćana govori bezveze o adventistima 7 dana, ali većina tamošnje crkve je osim palih babilonske crkve

    • Znate da je krajnje nepristojno kada govorite o razlikama između adventista i kršćana kao o bilo čemu u čemu je najveći pritisak, a drugo ćete suditi samo zato što vam želite držati Božje zapovijedi ako nam je on to naredio, pa sam ostavio te dvije zapovijedi ako ljubi svog Boga svim srcem svojim i držat ćeš njegovu subotu, a ako budeš naša vrsta prema svom susjedu to je ispunjenje ostalih deset zapovijedi, to nikada nije otklonjeno. A ti nas nazivaš nekršćanima kad se držimo prava subota

      Subotni spor Dodatno napisala Ellen White

      Broj jedan: Neki kršćani vjeruju da je subota promijenjena zbog popularnog vjerovanja da je subota namijenjena židovskom narodu. Koriste Otkrivenje 1:10 "Bio sam u duhu na dan Gospodnji i čuo sam iza sebe glasan glas poput trube".

      ... ali što je dan Gospodnji? Idemo na Sveto pismo da otkrijemo istinu.

      Izaija 58:13 “Ako okreneš nogu svoju od subote i ne učiniš svoje zadovoljstvo na moj sveti dan”. Koji je njegov sveti dan, dan kada je posvetio?

      Izlazak 20: 9 "Šest dana radi i radi sva svoja djela, a sedmi dan je subota Gospodina, tvoga Boga, i u njoj je počivao". Dakle, to je razlikovanje svetog dana, dana koji je bio posvećen, što bi značilo da je Gospodnji dan JEDNA subota. Imajte na umu da stranci unutar tih vrata nisu židovski ljudi jer je Isus želio da svi drže subotu

      Osim ovoga postoji Luka 6: 5, "i reče im da je sin čovječji također gospodar subote.", Dakle, opet je dan Gospodnji jednak danu subote.

      Broj dva: Neki vjernici vjeruju da je subota promijenjena zbog uskrsnuća i koriste se ovim stihom ...

      Matej 28: 1 “I kraj subote, kad se počelo bližiti prvom danu u tjednu, počeo je svanuti”, kažu ljudi jer kaže da je to bio kraj subote kao referenca na kraj biblijska subota, ali je li to doista? Pogledajmo to dalje…

      Kad kaže da je subota završena, znači li to doista da je subota okončana? Ili je to jednostavno iznošenje činjenice da je subotni dan završavao i započinjao novi tjedan prema prvom danu.

      Broj tri: Još jedno pogrešno shvaćanje je Marko 16: 1 “sada znajući da je Isus uskrsnuo rano prvog dana u tjednu kada je prvi pristupio Mariji Magdaleni”.

      Neki sada kažu da je to razlog zašto je subota promijenjena, ali možemo li vidjeti bilo što što se doista odnosi na promjenu subote? Nema ni jednog spomena o tome, a opet samo konstatira činjenicu, a povijest, spojimo dijelove.

      Marko 16: 1-2 „Kad je subota prošla nakon Marije Magdalene Marije, Jakovljeva i Salomonova majka donijela je začine kako bi mogli doći i pomazati ga“. Ovo mi je zapravo dokaz da je sedmi dan još uvijek bio važan. Ako je Isus rekao apostolima da ne trebaju držati subotu, zašto je onda bilo toliko važno da učenici ne završe s balzamiranjem njegova tijela u petak kad je Sunce zalazilo. Znali su da Isus neće biti zadovoljan. Učenici su to vidjeli jer je u to uloženo mnogo posla, pričekajmo nakon što je prošla subota. Isus je čak održao subotu u svojoj smrti. Odmarao se kroz subotu i ustao nakon što je završio, pa je ideja da je s tim okončana svinjarija.

      Sada još jedan stih i to pokazuje vitalnu važnost, međutim pokušavaju to upotrijebiti da podrže ono u što vjeruju, ali zaronimo dalje u to ...

      Sada neki ljudi tvrde da je zakon bio pribijen na križ, no je li to zaista bilo tako? Upotrijebimo Kološanima 2: 14-15 i kaže: „obrisavši svaku ruku zapise uredbi koje su bile protiv nas, a koje su bile protivne nama, i maknuo ga je s puta, prikovavši ga za križ, razoružavši poglavarstva i ovlasti. Napravio je javni spektakl od njih koji su u tome trijumfirali nad njima ”.

      Misli li se to na deset zapovijedi? Ispitajmo ovaj stih kako bismo došli do zaključka ... sada u 2. Ljetopisa 33: 8 stoji „oni će paziti da učine sve što sam im naredio prema cijelom zakonu, statutima i uredbama od Mojsija“.

      Ako primijetite da Kološani i Ljetopisi koriste riječ "uredbe" što znači da postoje dva zakona, Mojsijev zakon i deset zapovijedi. Colossians is merely representing the fact that we no longer have to keep the law of Moses, but not the Ten Commandments. Therefore, no more animal sacrifice, , be assured it is not with the Ten Commandments of the Lord that was written in stone. That is done away with what are the law of Moses

      Oridinances=Laws of Moses Ten Commandments=Hand of God Deuteronomy 31:26 says, “Take this book of the law, and put it in the side or the ark of the covenent of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee”. Luke 23:56 and it says “then they returned and prepared spices and fragrances oils and they rested on the Sabbath according to the Commandments”.

      now does any of this say that the Sabbath is a new day? I believe, The full ten Commandments still apply if you disagree show the scriptures in the comment section let's expand our biblical minds.

      Additional writings by Ellen G white The law of God in the sanctuary in heaven is the great original, of which the precepts inscribed upon the tables of stone and recorded by Moses in the Pentateuch were an unerring transcript. Those who arrived at an understanding of this important point were thus led to see the sacred, unchanging character of the divine law. They saw, as never before, the force of the Saviour's words: “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law.” Matthew 5:18. The law of God, being a revelation of His will, a transcript of His character, must forever endure, “as a faithful witness in heaven.” Not one command has been annulled; not a jot or tittle has been changed. Says the psalmist: “Forever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven.” “All His commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever.” Psalm 119:89; 111:7, 8.

      In the very bosom of the Decalogue is the fourth commandment, as it was first proclaimed: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Exodus 20:8-11.

    • You know it's extremely rude when you say the differences between Adventist and Christians as anything where the most pressure and secondly going to judge just because you want to hold you the Commandments of God was he commanded us to do so I left those two Commandments if you love your God with all your heart and you will keep his Sabbath and if you our kind to your fellow neighbor that is fulfillment of the rest of the Ten Commandments it has never been done away with And you call us non-christians when we keep the true Sabbath

    • I don't want to argue but since Jesus died on the cross for us to save us for our sins from what the first Adam did. We go by the new testament and it says in Mark that all food is clean now. Also Bible says that absent with the body is present with the Lord. Also while Jesus was hanging on the cross the man next to Him wanted to be forgiven and was afraid and Jesus said in a little while you will be in Paradise with me. I think in Luke.

  2. It is not true that SDA's forbid the eating of red meat because it defiles the soul. It is also not true that the SDA's encourage members to eat anything but in moderation.

    The truth is that SDA's are encouraged to eat clean meat in moderation. Check Leviticus chapter 11. On the other hand, since the original diet for man according to Genesis 1:29 is plant-based, vegetarianism is encouraged and promoted in the church. For this reasons there are SDA's who are vegetarians and there are some who are not but also eat in moderation the meat/fish/birds the Creator refers to as clean and wholesome for consumption.

    Finally, all the teachings and doctrines of the SDA's are bible based. Ellen White was a prolific spirit filled writer whose works are referenced only because they are in conformity with biblical teachings. Any piece that is in contradiction with the Holy Scriptures (The Bible) is rejected by the SDA's. At church service or any religious gatherings the books used by SDA's are the bible, and the SDA Hymn Book.

    • YES girl preach I am tired of people confusing other people in what us seventh day Adventist believe in, and what we do!!

      • I love SDA ways of the Bible and Witnesses I learned a lot more from your ways than I did from mainstream Christianity. I have family that are witnesses and a friend who is SDA I really like how you all really apply the Bible teachings and principles to life

    • You are living under Old Covenant which begins after resurrection of Christ. However, if you believe Jesus died and suffered and rose again, hallelujah. See you in heaven, brother:)

    • Amen. As previously noted, if people would just read the Word and not concentrate on one text, they would better understand the Bible. A text is part of a chapter and referenceds to other books is key in understating.

    • LOLOL. I find this statement that you write absolutely hysterical!

      You write (paraphrased)'any piece of the book written by Ellen whatshername that doesn't conform to the Bible will be thrown out…x

      According to 2 Timothy women cannot preach over men. Per your rules in SDA you are extremely conservative. Very archaic. You use the Old Testament. There for you believe in 2 Timothy.

      If there is even one line in a book that is contradictory, it is a lie! That entire book should be thrown out based on that alone. No. Questions. Asked!

  3. In large your commentary is good; but the most glaring inaccuracy is the origin of Christianity – In no way did it come from the Catholic church.

    In Acts chapters 1 – 2 we are taught that about 120 were gathered together with Peter (1:15); upon whom the holy Spirit was poured (2:14); and “Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day” (2:41).

    This was after Christ's resurrection and ascension, when the time for Pentecost was fulfilled (2:1) and was the founding of Christ's church.

    The 1906 US census recognized the Churches of Christ as autonomous bodies of followers of Christ adhering to the original church teachings found exclusively in the New Testament.

  4. I am catholic and believe that all of us have different beliefs but the same GOD and even the native americas believed of a higher power.

    • Being a completed Jew or a born again Jew, I feel that WHAT the bible says goes as it is the complete word of God.

    • The first 4 commandments, if obeyed, reflects our love to God. The only higher power is God, but too often people worship their own god. There is only One.

      The other 6 commandments, when obeyed, is our love for our brethren.

    • Stvarno?

      Do you believe that your God would go out and tell you to crash two planes into a couple of tall towers? Cuz I am absolutely one thousand percent positive that my God, my Jesus would never tell me to do that.

      So… No! We do not all share the same God. Samo kažem.

  5. SDA's ARE Christians. The title of your page is terribly misleading. If you said “Difference between Seventh-Day Adventists and Other Christian Denominations” it would be more correct.

    Also, SDA's don't out-and-out forbid drinking and smoking, but do very much discourage it, to the point that the vast majority of SDA's do not drink or smoke, but some few do.

    Dress in church varies by region and is generally no different from other Protestant churches in their region.

    Your information is TERRIBLY outdated. Please visit an SDA church and do more research. Or perhaps ask an actual Adventist. Like me, perhaps – I've been SDA for over 20 years and am very active in my local congregation and have participated in state- and nation-wide church constituency meetings.

    • why have service on saturdays than sundays?

      Hvala

      • Because Jesus worshipped on Sabbath. Saturday was considered the day of worship, but the catholic church changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday out of tradition. ( http://www.biblesabbath.org/confessions.html ) take a gander.

        God is the same yesterday, today and forever more. Hebrews. 13:5 God said Remeber the Sabbath to keep it holy. Exdous 20:8 God only santified, blessed and hallowed one day out of the week. Gen. 2:1-3

        These are just a few supporting verse. However, I will say to truly understand the Sunday vs. Sabbath debate, you would have to go back to the book Genesis and pray for the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom.

        Hope this helps

        • Bible gives very simple and straight forward instructions “Obey and Live” Obedience is better than sacrifice. There is no amount of penance or prayer that can equate to obedience to God's word.

          1 Samuel:15:22: And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

          I was just wondering if each church just discard what the Bible teaches and make their own 10 commandments and follow their own traditions, being a christian will be so easy. Once saved your always saved, why bother about sin, Judgement, Grace , saviour & Eternal Life.

          Why do we still hold on to the Bible and do as we please?

          Mark:7:7: Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Mark:7:8: For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. Mark:7:9: And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

          God is a God of Love and His commandments is His Character, He does not force anyone, all He says is , John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

          Matt:19:17: And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. Rev:12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

          Man has gone far away from God and that is why today Modern Society accepts : 1) Homosexuality 2) Live in Relationships and many such evils.

          Saturday or Sunday it does'nt matter to God? OR DOES IT? Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead us to the light given in the Bible.

          • You may work Saturday and Sunday I believe what Jesus is saying is to keep one day of the week Set aside to rest your self and worship the Lord I worked in a prison for years and very rarely had weekends off if you had Tuesday and Wednesday off the Lord wants you to set aside one day for Him and to rest but don't forget we are to be in the Word daily not just on Sunday or Saturday being good stewards of the Lord and to sharpen ourselves

          • Well said Let's pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us.am an a Pentecostal but wether Sunday or Saturday or Monday God still remains God and we should worship Him on a daily basis

        • Jesus worshiped on the Sabbath as he was a Jew. Jesus fullfilled the Sabbath requierment and became our Sabbath rest in accordance with the passover. Jesus healed & broke Sabbath rules and used them to teach. Ellen White was a Mason, Adventist churches are overflowwing with Masonic symbology, a true mark of the beast. Adventist are not the remnate church unless they are all virgin male Jews. The day a man born again of Spirit worships on is irrelevent. Yes it's true, the Sabbath was on a Saturday for the Jews, ask yourself, are you a Jew, Gentile or do you belong to the church of God? The old testement is the letter to learn from, it is not written to us, the gospels are miss placed in the new testement which is written to the saints. Study and show ourselves approved.

          • So according to you , Questions we should be asking : 1) Jesus was a Jew … so why should we follow Him? 2) He broke the sabbath rule, then why was it given in the first place? To later break it? Ask the question did Adam & Eve keep the sabbath? Were they Jews? When did Jews or Judaism begin? When did Sabbath begin? 3) To the question are you a Jew? We are all descendants from Noah .. Ham,Shem & Japhath & then later Abraham. We are now spiritual Israelites (Sabbath Keepers). 4) If old testament was not written to us but just a set of moral stories to learn from, then what do the prophecies in Daniel point to ? for the Jews or us ? What about Isaiah who points to the Messiah to be born in Matthew? (The birth of Jesus). 5) Sabbath is the only Identity Proof to Identify the Creator. It tells us : a) Who the Creator is : God b) What is His dominion over : All Universe (Heavens & the earth).

            You remove the sabbath and we have no proof of the creator & that is what the devil is trying to achieve.

            No Wonder the Sabbath commandment in Exo :20:8 begins with the word REMEMBER, because a long time ago even before you and me were born He knew that we will find reasons to FORGET the Sabbath.

            Whether Ellen G White was a mason is something that we should not Judge. All that is important for a true Christian is to follow the Bible Entirely, not some parts here and there.

          • Anoop I don't think you have understood what VirginKiller is saying.

          • I agree with VirginKiller

          • slažem se

          • The Sabbath was not for the Jews. It was given at Creation before Israel was born or mentioned. The Sabbath is for everyone who believes in God the Creator.

          • Virginia, I am not SDA but you are confusing them with Mormons or Latter Day Saints Ellen White was NEVER a Mason as only men are Masons. You are actually meaning Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism was a Mason and the symbology you mentioning in the Mormon Church.

          • VirginKiller, I am not SDA but you are confusing them with Mormons or Latter Day Saints Ellen White was NEVER a Mason as only men are Masons. You are actually meaning Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism was a Mason and the symbology you mentioning in the Mormon Church.

        • I am a non-denomination Christian, and after doing some research on the SDA sect. I am highly disappointed on other Christian groups for distancing themselves from them. The SDA denomination is more accurate in most of it's beliefs especially in that of the sabbath. I am my family have decided to always keep the Sabbath (Saturday) holy rather than Sunday. I pray the rest of the Christian family will do the same. This way we divorce ourselves from roman Catholicism.

      • Because Saturday/Sabbath was decided by God, not man. Genesis 20:8-11… remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy… six days shall though work, but the seventh day is the day of the Lord.

        The Sabbath was designed by God for all (not just Jewish people). Unfortunately, it was changed by Constantine… it's in the history books and can be found in the libraries and internet. This conflict is part of Satan's plan, but God is more powerful and merciful.

    • I just started going to a SDA Church and I think the devil is trying to hinder me. I was told they don't preach sound doctrine, and they are a cult. I was even asked not to post anything on the web page called “Word of God Speaking…” that has to do with SDA or Jehovah's witnesses.

    • Dear Wendy, I have a friend who attends SDA. Imam pitanje. I understand the SDA teaches there is no hell, even though Jesus spoke more about hell than heaven as He wants NONE to go there, but wants all to repent and accept His free gift of salvation. From my limited knowledge of SDA, it appears to be salvation by “works” meaning, you get to heaven by doing this or not doing that, versus Jesus free gift of salvation. The Bible teaches once we have repented (turned around – toward God rather than away from Him, turned from sin rather than being enslaved by sin) and trusted and accepted Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, and received Him as Savior – then we are going to heaven. The changes we make because of our Salvation are SOLEY out of our Love for Jesus. However, the Bible is also clear that there is a very severe consequence for rejecting Christ's work on the cross. It is eternity in hell. I've heard some say, “a good God could not send anyone to hell.” He DOESN'T – rejection of Christ does. He wants none to perish, but all to come. And the reason I struggle with this doctrine is because it takes the URGENCY out of leading the lost to Christ. I have seen this myself as I work with Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses that teach there is no hell. There is not the severe urgency to reach the person who is dying, because there are no “consequences”. That is a lie from Satan himself. There are VERY REAL consequences. Anyway, I'm interested in understanding where SDA comes up with this doctrine. As Jesus was so clear about the reality of a very real hell, Sheol, Gehenna, where there will be weeping, eternal fire, gnashing of teeth. Just trying to understand so I can discuss with my friend. Thank you and may God Bless you.

    • Ne. Oprosti. Not Christians.

      To be a Christian you must absolutely 100% believe that the only way to get to heaven is by John 3:16.

      To be a Christian you must believe that the Old Testament has been fulfilled by the Covenant.

      And to be a Christian you absolutely must never use another book as a form of teaching along with the Bible unless it is a Bible study. It cannot be used to preach out of. Never, never, never!

  6. All christians profess to follow Jesus Christ and His teachings and to walk according to the Bible. But I wonder why do Christians worship on Sundays when Jesus Christ himself has never kept sunday as the sabbath day. There is absolutely no reference of Him worshipping or advocating his followers /disciples to worship on sunday. He always kept the sabbath on the 7th day which is saturday according to the 10 commandments.

    If we have to go to heaven and live there for eternity , I wonder what laws they obey or keep in Heaven, because most Christians claim all laws are fulfilled and nailed to the cross and done away with. If there is no laws to keep, then logically speaking there exists no sin( because sin is the transgression of the law ) and in that case I don't need a Saviour to save me. So christians must think and study the Bible carefully. Sin definitely exists and so does the 10 moral laws. I need Jesus Christ to save me from my sins, cause only His blood cleanses me from sin and by Grace only I receive eternal life or salvation. And so because Jesus Christ has done such a wonderful thing in my life , I want to show my Love to Him and that is why I keep the 10 Moral Laws which are still operational & includes the 4th commandment which is the Sabbath.

    • at old testament time those people who will not attend worship services, the church instructed to kill them, that's is the sabbath so why the sda not follow this?

      • God accept who worship at Sunday not only Sabbath.. that's my opinion,but if that is your believe I respect it 😉

    • Too often people don't really know and many choose to follow traditions. Jesus was turned in by his own kind (Jewish) who did not accept him. However, not all Jewish hated and or hate Jesus.

      It's a good thing people ask, because that gives us the opportunity to refer them to the Bible and when in history, things got changed.

      At the end, God knows our true hearts/minds, and salvation comes from Him. Otherwise, we will all be doomed. Thank God that he sent His onlt begotten son, Jesus, to die for us and give us salvation. Amen.

  7. I am a Lutheran Christian and I go to church on Sunday. My first born was baptised in the Luthern church. He is now 18yrs and now an SDA christian. Life at home has changed because of his new beliefs which are contrary to what I believe. I love my son dearly but becase of his beliefs there is always tension at home. What must I do?

    • You said : “Life at home has changed because of his new beliefs ”

      Please find out if it has changed for the better or for the worse.? Has this new belief brought your son closer to God or away from Him? Because you love your son, you will be able to see the Joy and Growth he experiences in this true faith.

      To the Question “What must I do” Pray and ask God to open your eyes to see the new light shown in this new belief and you will find peace at home. Go to church with your son to experience it.

    • Pray, pray, and pray more!

      And just keep walking your walk. It's up to God. Try to keep the tension to a minimum because walking your Christian walk and keeping in prayer is what is going to make that change and he will finally come back to your bible-based Christianity and be with you in heaven inevitably for eternity. This is a life-and-death situation, so please be patient. We are in such a turmoil in the world right now so I certainly feel for you. My children have pulled away from the Lord as well, so I know your feelings. I'm praying for you.

  8. I'm sorry, but this whole article is terribly incorrect and misleading. (We must all be as careful about not giving false witness as we would be for any of the other commandments!)

    As a Seventh Day Adventist I hold no opinion of scriptures that differ with main-line protestant denominations concerning salvation. None. I'm simply a Christian who attends the Adventist church and I could as comfortably worship with any denomination that teaches that we are saved by the blood of Christ our savior. I think we Adventists are right about the seventh day sabbath observance and our dietary habits, but these issues certainly don't give us any primacy for heaven!

    • Think of a man sentenced to death soon to be executed for crimes say xyz Another man (Saviour ) steps in and says “I 'll die in your stead. You re free to live .” Do you think this man would repeat the crimes xyz. If he does its a shame. But if he is grateful and truly loves his saviour then he will never repeat xyz .

      So its with us. we re condemned to die because of SIN .Jesus stepped in.He died in our stead. To reciprocate this great love and sacrifice we ought to obey him keep ALL the commandments which includes the Sabbath observance. Keeping the law will not save me .But tells my Saviour How much I love Him.

      Bible is my rule of faith. the Bible speaks: 1) Sin is the “transgression of the law” 2)”the wages of sin is death” 3)”God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever” ( any denomination or religion)”believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” 4)In vain do you worship me by teaching for doctrines the traditions of men”. We cant serve both God and man

      God says, “If ye love me KEEP my commandments”.

      The book of Hosea illustrates this very clearly, how we as God's children have gone away from Him and how much He wants us to return back to Him and follow His commands.

      • wrong wrong wrong got a feeling most things written against seventh day Adventists are people which have left the church ,by their own undoing ,im so glad god is the apple of my eye and centre of my life. I love others as god does me ,love love love is all you need not arguing about scripture amen amen amen

        • Truly …the greatest commandment is Love , love your neighbor as God loves you. God is Love, God made the sabbath for man not man for the sabbath. God knew if it was up to us, we would work everyday and forsake him, he made us for him ,not he for us, he wants us to have a relationship with him and to do his will . The Sabbath will not save us, but it' s God promise to us and we can not change what the bible say to suit us.

          I am also reading my bible to get understanding and clarity to which day is the sabbath day ,maybe we can check out …Moses and God's people when they were in the wilderness, remember they had nothing to eat and God coursed manner to fall from heaven, God told his people on the sixth day to collect enough to for two days…He wanted them to rest on the seventh day. Thank you all for sharing , that's my feedback.. Jesus loves you and so do I. Love in the house

        • You're obviously not reading my posts then. Every single one of them I've read include scripture backing them up. Most people that states scripture are themselves Christians. I know I am. Proud to say I am a born again Christian. I spend my time in retirement leading missions Within the US and across the country as well as volunteering from my church and a few churches in my area. Jesus Christ is my life!

          BTW, I'm not sure what your post was. You could have simply posted two letters.

          No. Any more than that didn't even make sense. Samo kažem. Blagoslov! 🙂

      • It is called the propitiation. Jesus was our propitiation. HE took our place. While we were yet sinners, Jesus took the horrific punishment that was due us and took it and our sins upon himself. It all comes back to the cross and the cross and the cross and Him he died upon it.

  9. Richard, Paul teaches “to be absent from the body is to be present with The Lord. Also, Jesus teaches about a man named Lazarus. I don't believe this was a parable since it included things that Abraham said to Lazarus. This does not appear to be a parable. “God is not the God of the dead, but the living.” Also, consider the transfiguration, and Elijah being taken up to heaven. The scriptures you are giving to back the belief that man remains dead until the reserection are making different points–not explaining what happens when we die. Your ideas on death conflict with scripture which is intended to teach us about what happens when we die. I could be wrong, sure, I only say these things in love. Also, the foods forbid are no worse for the body than many foods not forbidden. The point was for the Hebrews to be set apart from others. I consider you my brother in Christ. Would you deny this because I worship on Sunday? Keeping the Sabbath Holy is more than getting the day right. I know this because God always shows up when I'm in Church on Sunday. Saturday may be the proper day. Ne znam. I admit that, but division between Christians violates the Greatest two commandments. Love God, Love your neighbor. His Holy Spirit dwells in me the same as you. I think it's unfair to say SDA are the only ones that can back their beliefs with scripture. You say the Catholics pick and choose what scriptures to believe. I agree, but don't all denominations. I'm baptist, but I wouldn't speak I'll of SDA's. See what I'm getting at? We are human, subject to error.

  10. This person definitely did not know what they were talking about. Adventists have no dress code, they just encourage more formal wear. Long dresses for woman is SO not true…. Teens especially wear what ever they want now to Church including short dresses.

  11. Amen brother! I grew up catholic but now am born again. Let us pray 4 eachother that one day we will all rejoice in truth

  12. A few thoughts:

    1) Seventh-day Adventists affirm all the verities of the Christian Faith: the Holy Trinity, the Deity of Christ, the substitutionary atonement of Christ on the cross, the bodily resurrection of Christ, justification by faith alone, assurance of salvation in Christ, the new birth, and Christ's literal second advent. So this makes them Christians.

    2) Seventh-day Adventists believe in healthy living as a mark of discipleship and have recommended a vegetarian diet. However, this is not a test of fellowship, and eating meat is certainly permitted.

    3) Seventh-day Adventist women are not required to wear long dresses. Adventist women try to be modest in their dress, but their garb conforms to what is worn in contemporary society.

    4) Seventh-day Adventists are not the only Christians who worship on Saturday. There are Seventh Day Baptists and a few other Christian sabbatarian groups.

    5) Seventh-day Adventists believe in sola scriptura (the Bible alone) and do not regard Ellen White's writings as scripture or as having the authority of the Bible. Unlike the Bible, she did not claim infallibility for her writings.

    5) Except for the above points, the article is accurate in its description of Seventh-day Adventists.

    • Adventists believe that Satan will ultimately bear the punishment for sin, not Jesus. Ellen White said this herself in “The Great Controversy”. Nothing fogs understanding of the truth like a well-intentioned Adventist, sadly.

  13. What I'm reading in most or many of the comments sounds like doctrinal rules. “Rest on Saturday or Sunday. Don't eat meat or eat meat? Jesus was a Jew, different rules apply, and so on.”

    All of this is irrelevant and negates Jesus' act of dying on the cross for our sins. Any religion or denomination that enforces rules on its congregation is contrary to God's Word and this is not Biblical. There are many people and churches that call themselves Christian, yet they enforce man-made rules on people, which does not equate to Biblical obedience.

    If you are a Christian that worships any other “book” along side or above the Bible, then you need to get rid of this idol and go back to the Word. Reading supporting books, commentaries, reading and research is always important, as long as it is checked back against the Bible to prove its accuracy and truth.

    If you don't eat food because you are told you have to, to fit into a denomination, then your motive isn't by your own choice or faith or knowledge, it is obedience to man, not God. All food is clean according to Bible.

    For Adam's sin there was placed by God the law. But Jesus came into the world to replace the law (Romans), and we become obedient to Christ by faith not by works (the law). All Christians, if you are doing “works” because you think it's “right”, and everyone else is doing the “wrong” thing, then you are no better than any other domineering religion (Jehovahs Witnesses, Mormans, Scientologiests, etc.) imposing your “works” on others.

    You need to revisit Romans and remember that nothing you do effects your salvation other than your acceptance of Christ as God and redemption by his blood for the forgiveness of your sins. By blindly following man-made rules, you negate Christ's work on the cross and God's master plan for mankind—to restore our personal relationship with Him.

    However, this does not mean we should all be drinking, smoking, riotous, gluttonous, immoral, immodest, divisive, etc. When we accept Christ as our savior and are born again, the Holy Spirit works in us to become more Christ-like, healthier, compassionate, righteous, honouring our bodies as a temple of the Holy Spirit, and not wanting to sin, etc.

    Any day of worship is honouring God, and if one man does eat and one man doesn't eat, neither is wrong.

    I admit that I don't like that SDA seem to idolise Ellen White and this is dangerous. But many Christians idolise preachers and other writers and we need to all be careful. Paul makes a big point in his letters that the congregation should not be “worshipping” him for his teaching or any other “teacher”, but we should all be worshipping God but readinv, studying and cross-referencing everything against his Word.

    Obviously because we are sinful humans, each of us has a different interpretation to God's Word, but there is only one Holy Spirit and we should pray to God that the Holy Spirit will open the word to each of individually to explain and clarify it to us, and not trust any other “human's” interpretation or doctrine.

  14. An insight to understanding all scripture is to acknowledge God as not only 100 percent love, but also 100 percent HOLY. Both are mutually inclusive. And He requires all to be as Holy as He. This (Salvation) is only possible through faith alone in the Saviour Christ Jesus Who imputes His 100 percent righteousness to the account of those Who will put their trust and faith in Him alone, and so meets the 100 percent righteousness that God requires of us all.

    • Wow sooo Mr Ed , you seem to think you can be Holy of yourself and by your works ? The law says very simply God is Love but He is also just and He must punish sin . The wages of sin is death . Death means separation from Him. So if you have ever had a thought displeasing to God or if you do today – God's righteous requirement requires that you should be separated from Him forever. He can have no Fellowship w sin. Isn't it wonderful that he didn't leave us to die according to His righteous judgement?? He sent His Son ( fully God ) to fulfill His righteousness requirement that my sin be punished. He ( not me ) fulfilled God's righteous requirement that my sin be punished when He poured out His wrath on the son for your sin and mine . In other words Jesus came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it and when He said” Tetelistai “ as His next to last cry on the cross your sin debt and mine was PAID IN FULL. He not me did it ALL and now He fulfilled the law and He offers eternal life as a free gift – NO strings attached when I accept the gift by agreeing with Him I am a sinner I can't save myself , I believe Jesus died for my sin and rose from the dead to prove the sacrifice was indeed Sufficient to take care of all my and to prove He truly was and is God. I must be willing to allow Him to help me thru His spirit and to allow Him to empower me to live a life pleasing to Him. If my confession was a true one broken over my sin – all my sin , past , present and future , confessed or not is forgiven . He also seals me in His Spirit to change my heart and desires – today I serve him out of love not to earn or keep eternal life but because I have it. It is a total fabrication to think that He is making sure I prove up from heaven to make sure I live a good enough life etc . He says eternal life is a free gift – I am no longer under bondage but He set me free to serve Him and Love Him . Anyone who tells you you can't know if you have done enough doesn't understand the true gospel. Jn 6:47 He who believes in Me has everlasting life . He said NOTHING can take me out of His hand and nothing can take me out of the Father's hand. I then go though a lifelong process called santifacation where he guides me and even chasens me as I walk in obedience to Him – if of course I have truly trusted HIM ALONE for my salvation of course my heart will be changed and there will be fruit because of the gift of life He has given me . Oh the joy of Jesus knowing I am His – if it depended on me I would never ever get to His paradise. Anyone who thinks somehow they can be good enough or that He didn't do enough does not understand His absolute Holiness. When I go before Him there will be no condemnation . I will not be wearing my filthy rags of self righteousness but HIS perfect robe of the righteousness of God . How I pray someone will read this and put their pride and desire to DO something aside and simply surrender to Him and the GIFT of life today and forevermore He offers. James Cline

  15. Salvation meets all God's righteous requirements, known as Justification. Then follows Sanctification, which entails obedience to God's IFS, ie, His commandments, as proof of your love for/to Him, also known as Discipleship. “He that has my commandments, (His “IFS”),and keeps them is the one who truly loves Me”, and, I will love him and manifest Myself to him. And when we repent, God will relent, and forgive us of all our unrighteousness.

  16. I am glade to be part of this interesting commentary group.

    My name is Chan Kaeyo, 32 years old male and Iam from Papua New Guinea and I came to notice that Adventist are largest cult moment in the world today. Because SDA church was formed by a false prophet called William Miller with doctrinal inscription by Hellen G. White as given by devil trough imaginary beliefs and person assumptions, especially being vegetarian after seeing her husband dying from eating unhealthy food, their biblical interpretations and explanations are contradictory and impractical, misleading millions of simple people astray, finally journeying towards hell. They are mixing up everything and trying to cool down their followers with Sabbath worship, being vegetarian and rest, serving the creature more than the Creator. Don't they know that Sabbath was made for men and NOT men made for Sabbath? Don't observe days and months but Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. If they preach about keeping the sabbath, then they should keep all the details of keeping sabbath, not walking, no children, no visited in your house to go out playing, looking for another friend on the sabbath, no letting any of your goats or sheeps out in the field, even not drinking water because pigs with the devil drowned in the river (though the pigs are all death), river where all died are still recycling and you are drinking.

    While you are talking about law, you are totaling forgetting yourself that you are commiting very sin Jesus died for and you are serving sabbath more that Jesus Himself.

    So seeing men can not fulfill all the law and Sabbath in full, Jesus died so that He is the only TARGET where you will hang all your law, sin, Sabbath. He will guide you through in Spirit and you will CLEARLY know the true interpretation of his Word in the Bible in the Spirit.

    If you are not in the spirit, than how will you know the Word of God because its Spiritual. Earthly men will interpretate in earthly ways and those in the Spirit will know the Word of God in spirit.

    To finish it, I urge every believer not to believe in the Seventh Day Adventist doctrine because its a Large Cult Moment Against true Christian Christ Established on the Cross and roses on the First Day of the week where I have a reason to serve him on the First Day when he Resurrected, have Victory over death and First Christians (Jesus's disciples) gethered together on the First Day having communion celebrating his victory over death. Amen

  17. Roseofsydney is correct so SDAs must read that

  18. I think we all sometimes get too caught up in Denominations, beliefs and trying to prove others wrong. If we all would follow christ as he asked us to. And we all understand that God sent Jesus to die for our sins and that he is one day coming back. Pray…love others…spread the Gospel and live according to his word we would be ok. Get out of our every day life selfishness and free our time more to do his will. Amen

  19. It is funny to hear all the comments and half truths. Not one of you said the truth yet. The Jews were adding laws to the Sabbath and making it a burden. Jesus healed on the sabbath. The sabbath was changed by man not Jesus. (Constantine). The Deciples continued to obey the sabbath. Paul preached Saturday night..after sunset so it was called Sunday night service because he was leaving the morning. The Devil's legions asked to be released into swines and jumped over the bank into the river. All of you need a good bible study. Jesus said ” I come not to change the law. In luke.. he went into the church on the Sabbath as it was customary. Mogu nastaviti i dalje. Adventist are not compelled to wear long dress the knew should be covered. Women could now go up to the Alter to worship God if they were showing too much skin. God did not change his commandments, Jesus died that we could be saved since all have sinned and fallen short of the glory since our Righteousness is filthy rags.

  20. It appears people are always stubborn to accept the truth no matter how much evidence you put in front of them to convince them in terms of bible scriptures. I am a SDA from PNG, so to Chan Kaeyo, obviously you don't know what you're talking about. We SDAs based our beliefs and teaching entirely on the Bible. SDA church is the only church that can explain the prophecies in the Bible. Ask another denomination to explain a prophecy and they will leave you hanging.

  21. I believe all churches are Gods …as long as we are bible reading and put God as number one ! Love him and show everyone else love ( his love) it is all good! Why do people get hing up on which church or type of church one goes to?? I ask only a few things and I know they are one Gods track 1) do you love God? ( number 1) 2) do you love everyone do they can see and feel Gods love through you? 3) do they read the Bible 4) do they pray talk to God??? well folks …that's all that counts in my book . If they do this God will show they everything they need ! I don't care what denomination or name on the church sign!!!! If you do these things .. you are MY brother or sister and I am sure we will be spending etirnity together

  22. Now I ask you do you read bible.OK first of all I want to ask you simple question like why do you worship idol .Bible already strictly says that idol should not be worship.In ten commandments also it's said (thou shall not bow down to any graven image- exodus chap20)and if you don't obey ten commandment then don't tell me you read bible.

  23. You people Catholic Church is the owner of the Bible you are using….who can correct the errors you make in your letter… Protestants started 16AD…by Fr. Martin Luther… the Catholic Church were still using the same Bible they are using today…. Imagine 1500 years ago before Reformation…. and who said Saturday or Sunday is the only day of the Lord..no no… what about Monday to Friday belongs to who????

  24. Gods ways are higher than ours. No human can know the mind off God. If we are truly born again, we would not be arguing the scriptures. God is Holy, his word is final. Be care what you say. If you add or take away from the Holy bible you will face God's wrath. God is God of justice, not what we think. We all deserve to be in hell, but because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, we have reconsilation with God only if we chose it, we have free will. God doesn't send anyone to hell, we send ourselves. Judging other is a sin, lieing is a sin. Thinking we know the bible is a sin. Everyone has to get a personal revelation from the Holy spirit. Jesus did not create denomination he preached love. Remember the precious Jews are the chosen children of God. They had different expectations compared to us the gentile. If your not Jewish your a gentile. Only God people will be saved when they call upon his name.

    We are not to give glory to any man It is God who gives wisdom, revelation. Some of us will never really know as God will not tell just anyone about his treasures. The seven spirit of God Wow. Never think your more Holy or better because you don't eat meat or don't wear makeup. Jesus Christ came for the broken hearted. To seek and save the lost. That's me!!!!!!!!!! Remember the heart is wicked and deceitful. No human is nice or loving, it's the Holy spirit in them.

    ❤❤❤❤

  25. Religion like politics is a personal choice. I believe in the Trinity. When Jesus preached many time in small and big groups, and God knowing all things, Jesus knew the people in his crowds would branch into different religious groups. The important thing is belief, trust, and faith that God is real and we will always need him regardless of which religious group we follow. God is love and we need to put love into actions like helping people when it's not convenient for us, devote time to others less fortunate, listen to people when they're hurting, etc. A person of any religion can put their love into actions. That's what God cares about…not if your Catholic, SDA, Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, etc. Our religious choice is a personal journey. Embrace it as He wants us to…with love, trust, and faith.
