I grew up 7th Day Adventist and went to 7th Day Adventist schools. I dont know of any conspiracies per se other than the change in worship from Sunday
to Saturday - which was explained to me the reason is Sunday was chosen to be used by the other christians as a day of worship to get more pagans
involved (akin to Christmas Day being what it is etc) for SDA Friday at Sundown is when the Sabbath starts. No pork etc. And tithing is a BIG deal.
There is the "Great Disappointment" where Christs 2nd (3rd 4th, whatever) coming was predicted for a certain day and didn't happen, however
apparently the math was wrong so they changed the date again and when that never happened, they decided they would follow the biblical doctrine that
we will not know the exact date and so on, so they just say now that it is soon. And yes the Catholic Doctrine is looked upon with antipathy, even
though the doctrines are very similar. In TN there are colleges etc for the SDA. I do not recall any "conspiracies", everything is pretty much an
My family was kicked out of the church for our inability to pay our tithe when I was young, so I no longer keep up with it. My grandmother is
(BIGTIME) and I will go to hell because I volunteer in the kitchen for bingo (gambling) on Friday nights... a double whammy - gambling ON THE SABBATH!
and I LOVE bacon
