I’ve dealt – to some extent – with what I perceive to be doctrinal errors of those within Seventh-day Adventism. It would be impossible to cover all of the sacred cows of this group and many others have taken the time to catalog these errors, in either book form or their websites.
As I’ve stated on numerous occasions, debating does little to nothing to convert a person. It is God the Father who draws a person and if He does not draw them, they will not come to Him. Granted, presenting truth is a good way to start, but that of course is no guarantee that the truth will be embraced. All one has to do is read through the Gospels and the book of Acts to learn of the many times that multitudes of people heard the truth from Jesus (or Paul, etc.), and simply rejected that truth out of hand.
After all, how many times have you – as a SDA – told people that your beliefs are essentially their beliefs? How many times have you tried to pass yourself off as a mainline, orthodox individual? If so, then leaving the SDA and attaching yourself to a mainline, orthodox church will not affect your salvation, will it? If you believe it WILL, then obviously something is wrong. Obviously, you have been living a lie and when all is said and done, you do not really believe that other groups can be or are saved, do you?
