The state of the dead, or Soul sleep

The tomb of Jesus

The tomb of Jesus, adriatikus, WikiMedia Commons

Adventists believe that at death, a human becomes unconscious, and remains so until the end of time, when Christ raises the dead back to life, some to be annihilated in fire, some to life forever in God’s Kingdom. But this is not the biblical view of the state of the dead.

Ellen Gould White, prophetess

Ellen Gould White is a very important figure in the Adventist church. To many Adventists, she is a prophetess who was given a revelation by God. But did she really get her visions from God? Did she really write her own books? Are her teachings and prophecies in agreement with biblical principles? And what else did she teach that concerns modern Christians?

Dr. Fred Mazzaferri – 5 essays on Adventist theology [PDF]

Dr. Fred Mazzaferri writes this brief series of instructive essays for us from Australia. He gained his PhD at Scotland’s conservative University of Aberdeen in 1986, following a fruitful career in telecommunications. He specialises in the rather enigmatic Book of Revelation. He has further qualified to pen such critiques through his extensive knowledge of the Seventh-day Adventist Church gained in close personal contact with its extremely self-destructive turmoils in recent decades. Hence his keen interest in assisting both lay and professional Christians in transition from sectarian organisations.
