I am very glad to hear this!!! This is the sole reason I am on this forum to spread this kind of information and hope that people will be convinced in their heart the truth of it. The message comes with it a solemn warning to prepare spiritually for the period of testing that will soon be upon us. I am happy to answer any other question you might have.
OK, I have a question! One of the ideas which led me out of the SDA church was this: we know that the Hebrew culture/religion did not have names for days of the week as we do, only Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, and Sabbath. Week after week it went so, but when a High Sabbath came along, and it fell on a date, maybe the weekly Sabbath, maybe not, and then the day count started all over again, Day 1, Day 2, etc. In consequence, the weekly Sabbath could (and did, according to my source) fall on any, ANY, day of our current calendar. How does the SDA sabbath position answer this?
Further, the commandment says to do all your work in six days, and rest on the sabbath. The SDA church, yes, I noticed this myself, emphasizes the Sabbath Rest, but lets the question of six days of work slide completely. Thus, it seems to me that they only support half of the commandment. Comment?
