There’s a multitude of false religions in the world today, all intended to deceive the masses, to prevent them from coming to Jesus Christ for salvation (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Seventh-Day Adventists [SDA] are a horrible cult, a Satanic religion which appears as true. SDA’s are very sneaky, deceived and subtle. SDA’s, more than any other false religion, APPEAR as born again Christians; BUT, they are not. They are of the Devil, clearly evidenced by the heretical teachings on salvation.
“To help us understand how God can transform us into His children, Jesus modeled the process of baptism for us. Baptism symbolized dying to self and coming alive in Jesus. Seventh-day Adventists practice full immersion baptism because by being fully buried beneath the water we symbolize that God’s grace fully fills us with His new life for the future. Through baptism we are truly born again in Jesus.” [emphasis added]
SOURCE (2nd paragraph from bottom)
What a lie of Satan! No where in the Word of God are we ever told that baptism saves.
Lutherans and other Bible-corrupters like to manipulate 1st Peter 3:21, “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” Usually, the heretics will just take a few words out of this Scripture, failing to quote the entire Verse. If a person were only to consider the phrase, “…baptism doth also now save us,” then they might get the WRONG impression that baptism is essential to going to Heaven. If we read the rest of the Verse, then the truth is clearly seen, “…not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God.”
Being water baptized cannot forgive our sins. In fact, getting baptized will just get you wet! 1st Peter 3:21 states that baptism is the “like figure.” Romans 6:5,6 plainly teaches that baptism is only the “likeness” of the Gospel, not the Gospel itself. Ironically, SDA’s state this on the the above webpage, which is extremely CONTRADICTORY. How can baptism be “symbolic” if it also has the POWER to save. Romans 1:16 declares that the Gospel is the “power” of God unto salvation. Baptism is not mentioned.
You can argue with me all you want, the SDA quote above, requiring baptism for salvation, speaks for itself.
History can be corrupted, but the truth cannot. Ellen G. White denied Jesus’ deity.
“The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty.”
—Ellen G. White (1903, ms 150, SDA Commentary V, p. 1129)
SDA teach a series of heresies, such as the unscriptural “Investigative Judgment” and “soul sleep” and that there is no Hell. SDA’s instead errantly believe that the wicked will be annihilated. The Bible has much more to say about Hell than Heaven, and repeatedly warns of flaming fire (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9), everlasting fire (Matthew 18:8) and the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 1:7) for the wicked.
Seventh-Day Adventism is a Satanic Deception!
It is tragic that men and women, in their woeful stubbornness and pride, are willing to corrupt the Scriptures in order to justify their foolishness and sin. SDA wouldn’t exist today if it were not for the foolishness of William Miller, who errantly predicted the Lord’s return in 1843. SDA was born out of a failed prophecy!!! This fact alone proves incontrovertibly that SDA is a scam, a hoax, and a false religion rooted in man’s sinful pride and wickedness.
I plead with you to forsake the Seventh-Day Adventist false religion if you are a victim. Acts 16:31 is the only invitation which God ever gave for men to be saved … “Believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.“
