Dear Christians, The subject of SDAism has come up on this board, and apparantly there may be some SDAs present. There exists a few well-researched interest sites for the SDA to examine their own beliefs in the light of Scripture. This thread is directed mainly to Christians. I have till now been scarcely aware of the teaching of the SDAs or Ellen White. Honsestly, I had no bias at all against the group and only thought they were distingusihed from others by their view of the Sabbath. Sadly, I have been mistaken. Most grievous of their doctrines is the teaching on the atonement. To the SDA the atonement is not complete. The following is a summary from www.exadventist.com which I have found to be honest and accurate (I looked up the quotes and read them in context). One may inquire what they mean by "to cancel sin" but this is enough to cause great alarm to believers. Also, Again, another statement to show the unfinished nature of the atonement of Christ. Brethren, this is heretical. The SDA church affirms that all teaching to should be judged of Scripture. The idea of an unfinished and yet to be accomplished (final work of atonement) should be so clear to bible-believers as false as to warrant little comment. This statement the website highlight I found so utterly blasphmous that I am somewhat ashamed to even repeat it. But for the sake of the believer it should be exposed and condemned: Precious Christian, flee from this utter blasphemy. I cannot in my mind fathom words strong enough to condemn this evil doctrine of demons. Only a devil could utter such a horrendous attack upon the substitionary atonement of Christ and make satan the one to bear the sins of God's people. To the SDA I say with grief and anger in my heart: Flee this teaching. Get out of the SDA cult. This teaching is utterly reprehensible and flee to Christ who alone bore the sins of His people. He Himself is the scapegoat for His people who once and for all accomplished eternal redemption for those who believe in Him. May the Lord be praised.
