Just about every other sect/cult craft a new doctrine UNIQUE to them. SDAs under Ellen White invented Investigative Judgement. The doctrine is so convoluted, it has been mutating since it was developed to accommodate its own inconsistencies. What is Investigative Judgement? This doctrine teaches that Christ began investigating and judging His people in 1844. He started with the dead believers, and when He is finished with their cases, He will begin judging the living believers near the end of time. During this Investigative Judgment God either blots out the sins of the believer, or he removes the name of the believer from the Book of Life. When His judgment is complete, the door of probation will be shut and Jesus will return to earth to reward His people according to their works For now, am just interested in finding if there has ever been traces of this doctrine in the entire Christian history Before 1844. So am calling my brothers from Adventism, One Baptism, BobRyan and others to help me in this inquiry.
