“ Talk about deception... ”
I'm an Adventist and came here to wrestle with my own biases. I was expecting to hear a dissection of our beliefs from a purely scriptural standpoint (comparing beliefs with Bible verses). But, he spends the first 40 minutes of his 1 hour sermon talking about Ellen White. Where are the Bible verses? Unfortunately, Adventist critics always focus on the Millerites and Ellen White. These aren't even mildly related to our foundational beliefs. Around the 50 minute mark, he started getting into some beliefs - salvation by faith, "soul sleep", etc. But, he just says they're wrong without Bible verses to support him. They are his words or someone else he quotes. He says Adventists are unskilled in doctrine at 54. But, this weak dissection of Adventist beliefs indicates he may be the one unskilled. At 55 he brings up the Sabbath and he quotes Romans and Colossians - (FINALLY A BIBLE VERSE!). But, he is using those verses out of context. Instead of reading the context of those verses to understand their meaning, he jumps back to Ellen White. I am no pastor. But I know my Bible. We don't teach that salvation hinges on being Adventist. Most of what he said we believe, we don't. Sadly, people hear his sermon and think this is what we really believe.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Three are not many in the church who pay attention to the Adventists. I am glad to see someone like Phil Johnson address them. For some reason they don't get the type of attention that Mormonism or jws do.

“ Enlightening Sermon! ”
Phil does a great job pointing out the important differences between the SDA and fundamental Christianity.

“ Great Sermon! ”
I have been looking for sermons on Adventism now I can forward them to my lost family, they say I have the mark of the beast because I now go to church on Sunday

“ Great Sermon! ”
well done expose on that very subtle cult posing as a Christian denomination.

“ Great Sermon! ”
This is a very thoughtfully presented sermon. The teacher's voice is winsome, and the content follows a very logical ordering of the facts. The tone is respectful but serious, without the need for sarcasm or inappropriate humor that can sometimes accompany polemic subject matter. Good work.

“ forgot to say... ”
The SDA Sabbath school lessons come out of the SDA General Conference, which dictates all of what they teach everyone on Saturday mornings. The lesson booklets have lessons for adults as well as children's lesson plans. These lessons often include passages from EG White's writings written into the lesson but then does not give any citation to indicate that this is including such writings let alone where they are from. This, again, is deceptive, or at very least, sloppy writing. The SDA learners/Sabbath School attenders are misled to assume this is coming straight out of the Bible. Often SDA members will say things like Adam was over 9 feet tall, thinking it is in the Bible when in actuality it is one of EG White's "prophecies".

“ Great Sermon! ”
I was brought up Seventh-day Adventist. Thankfully the Lord saved even me. It is true that it is very difficult to extricate oneself from this cult, and yes it is a cult. I heard that the man who started the Jehovah's Witnesses also came out of the Millerite movement. Seventh-day Adventism is a religion, however being saved by Jesus is a changed life not enslaved to a religion. There is a huge difference.

“ Very helpful and informative ”
I think this helped paint a very clear picture of the history of the SDA and what they believe. Worth listening to.
