Seventh Day Adventist Lies
by David J. Stewart
1st Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”
The following LIE of Satan is taken from a Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church website...
"Through baptism we are truly born again in Jesus." —SOURCE
What a lie of Satan! No where in the Word of God are we ever told that baptism saves. Lutherans and other Bible-corrupters like to manipulate 1st Peter 3:21, "The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ."
Usually, the heretics will just take a few words out of this Scripture, failing to quote the entire Verse. If a person were only to consider the phrase, "...baptism doth also now save us," then they might get the WRONG impression that baptism is essential to going to Heaven. If we read the rest of the Verse, then the truth is clearly seen, "...not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God." Being water baptized cannot forgive our sins.
In fact, getting baptized will just get you wet! 1st Peter 3:21 states that baptism is the "like figure." Romans 6:5,6 plainly teaches that baptism is only the "likeness" of the Gospel, not the Gospel itself. Ironically, SDA's state this on the the above webpage, which is extremely CONTRADICTORY. How can baptism be "symbolic" if it also has the POWER to save. Romans 1:16 declares that the Gospel is the "power" of God unto salvation. Water baptism is not mentioned.
SDA's put the cart before the horse. They also have baptism on the brain. There is only one way to be saved, and that is by grace through faith alone in the precious blood of Christ Jesus, Who shed His blood to pay for our sins. SDA's don't believe that simple belief upon the Lord Jesus Christ can save a person (although they make it sound like they do). They are imposters who have ADDED works to faith alone, which is a guaranteed road to Hell . . . "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin" (Romans 3:20).
Seventh Day Adventism is a false religion. Why? Because they teach that faith alone in Jesus Christ is NOT enough to save a person. On the following SDA webpage, they state...
"Abiding in Him we become partakers of the divine nature and have the assurance of salvation now and in the judgment."
The Word of God NEVER promises us eternal life if we abide in Him. The only mention of abiding in Christ in the Bible is spoken to those who are ALREADY saved, such as in 1st John 2:28, "And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming." Carefully notice the words, "Little children." These words were written to Christians, not the unsaved. So how does a person get saved? We read in Acts 16:31, "...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." A person is saved by believing upon Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and; not, as SDA's teach, by "abiding in Him."
Jesus is Our Sabbath; but SDA's Horribly Corrupt the Scriptures
The Sabbath was a ceremonial law given only to the Jews in the Old Testament. Jesus broke the Sabbath (John 5:18). This plainly shows that the Sabbath was not a moral law, which the Lord would never break. The Sabbath represented Jesus Christ, in Whom humanity rests completely for salvation. Man working 6-days represents man's self-righteousness. The way of salvation is to cease from our own labors and rest in Jesus (Hebrews 4:1-10). Hebrews 4:10, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.” Hebrews 4:10 plainly teaches that the Sabbath was a picture of salvation, which when Jesus came, became our Sabbath. Jesus is our Sabbath today in Whom we completely rest for our salvation!
Adventists errantly teach that anyone who worships God on Sunday is part of the Antichrist system. They teach that Saturday is the Sabbath and the only day on which true worshippers come together. Contrary to the nonsensical rhetoric spewed by SDA's, Colossians 2:16 plainly teaches not to judge, nor allow anyone to judge us, “in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days.”
Colossians 2:14-16, “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days.”
Seventh-Day Adventists Teach Works Salvation
SDA is a messed up religion which requires water baptism, Sabbath keeping and persevering in good works to be saved. They deceitfully speak of receiving Jesus for salvation, which misleads their victims; but at the core of their false religion they pervert the Gospel and demand all sorts of self-righteous works to be saved.
As with nearly all false prophets, SDA's deceitfully profess to believe in salvation by grace through faith; but then horribly contradict themselves in their writings . . .
Faith is not simply looking at a distant, historical Jesus. Rather, it is responding to His invitation to "follow me." That is how I become a disciple. It is by accepting the obligation to live a life of discipleship that faith becomes obedience. Surely this is what Mrs. White meant when she wrote that the faith that leads to salvation "is not a mere intellectual assent to the truth. . . . The only faith that will benefit us is that which embraces Him as a personal Saviour" (ibid., p. 347). "To have faith means to find and accept the gospel treasure, with all the obligations which it imposes" (Christ's Object Lessons, p. 112).
SOURCE: SALVATION BY FAITH, Jan Paulsen;
Heresy! Salvation is not “accepting the obligation to live a life of discipleship.” This negates the gift of God. Romans 4:5 plainly teaches, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” SDA's ignore and disregard Romans 4:5. Salvation is without works of self-righteousness. The man who believes on Christ is saved, because his faith is COUNTED for righteousness. I tell you plainly that Seventh-Day Adventism is straight out of the pits of Hell.
Notice also that the quote mentions of Ellen G. White, a heretic who openly denied the deity of Jesus Christ. Seventh-Day Adventism is Ellen G. White! Ellen White's gravestone is marked with a giant Illuminati obelisk. SDA is a New World Order religion, as are Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Scientologists and many others. The common denominator is occult Freemasonry.
Adventists like John Quade talk about “inviting Jesus into your life” to be saved, but that is not what the Bible teaches. Judas invited Jesus into his life, being one of Christ's very disciples, but still went to Hell. The Bible tells us to BELIEVE on Jesus (John 1:12; Acts 16:31); not give our life to Jesus or invite Him into our life to be saved. That is a false gospel.
The quote I just gave you by Jan Paulsen clearly evidences that Seventh-Day Adventists teach works salvation . . . “It is by accepting the obligation to live a life of discipleship that faith becomes obedience.” If a life of discipleship is mandatory for salvation, then self-righteousness is required for salvation. Do you see how deceptive SDA's are? They claim to believe in salvation by grace through faith alone in Christ; but then they contradict themselves by teaching that a person must live a life of obedience to Christ in order to be saved.
As you just read from her own writings, Ellen G. White taught that faith in Christ includes OBLIGATIONS. That is not Biblical. Salvation is receiving, not giving. There are no obligations to salvation. Revelation 22:17 says that WHOSOEVER is thirsty may take of the water of life freely. There is no obligation on our part to be saved. If we acknowledge our guilt of sin and believe on Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, then we will be saved (John 3:16; Acts 10:43; Romans 10:13)
The Devil is Subtle and Deceptive in Seventh-Day Adventism
Seventh Day Adventists [SDA] profess to believe that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. However, what they don't tell you is that they have a very different understanding of what the term “faith” means. To the Adventist, faith encompasses everything that the Christian life includes.
"To have faith means to find and accept the gospel treasure, with all the obligations which it imposes" (Christ's Object Lessons, p. 112).
SOURCE: SALVATION BY FAITH, Jan Paulsen;
Obligations? What obligations? Eternal life is a free gift, paid for by Jesus' precious blood (Romans 4:5-6; 1st Peter 1:18-19). SDA is a works-based false religion, which mandates OBLIGATIONS that the Bible does NOT! There can be no obligations for something truly to be a gift! If I tell you that I bought you a birthday present, but first you must complete a list of obligations to have it; then it WOULDN'T truly be a gift! It would be a reward that you had earned.
The entire corrupted mindset of the Seventh-Day Adventist is that you had better do your best, while trusting Christ, and hope your best is good enough when Christ's work of Investigative Judgment is complete. This false doctrine is only taught by Adventists. The term Investigative Judgment isn't even found in the Bible. SDA's have their own bizarre demonic cult which is deceitful, packed full of lies and smells with the stench of sewage from Hell. Run, run, run while you can, before you get sucked into the deadly black hole of lies and deceit of Seventh-Day Adventism!!!
Thus, faith to an Adventist means that a person must be water baptized, go to church, faithfully live a righteous life, tithe, keep the SDA Sabbath, et cetera, to be saved in their religion. Of course, that is a damnable doctrine not taught in the Word of God. Seventh Day Adventism is a false religion based upon self-righteousness and a corrupt view of the gospel.
Biblical faith is simply resting in Jesus Christ for salvation (Genesis 15:6; Romans 4:3-5; Romans 10:3-4; Ephesians 2:8-9). Biblical faith imposes no obligation upon the sinner in order to be saved. Faith in the Lord is all that is necessary. Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15;6:23), freely offered (Romans 10:13) and freely received (Revelation 22:17). Salvation is receiving, not giving. The sinner who believes on Jesus Christ, the Son of God, apart from all self-righteousness, will be saved and go to Heaven.
Seventh-Day Adventists Deny the Existence of a Literal Hell
SDA teacher and author, Doug Batchelor, teaches that Hell does not exist. He believes Hell will merely be the annihilation of the wicked here on earth . . .
2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9 plainly teaches that all Christ-rejecters will suffer eternal punishment in a literal place called Hell that burns with flames of fire . . .
2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.”
How can anyone explain away this Scripture? Doug Batchelor claims that God is not cruel and could never send anyone to a Lake of Fire to suffer forever; but that's not what the Word of God teaches. If God allows unimaginable suffering in this present earthly world, then you can rest assure God means what He says about an eternal place for the dammed (Psalm 9:17), a place of fire and brimstone (Revelation 21:8), where the wicked will be punished forever (Revelation 20:11-15).
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
