Replacing Jesus with the sabbath, the Adventist way

Crucifixion, from Polittico di Valle Romita

If you listen to what Adventists say about the sabbath, and replace the word “sabbath” with “Jesus”, you hear the truth. If you don’t replace it, you hear false teaching about a day of the week. This has often been pointed out to me, and I’ve found it works a lot of the time. But not alway as clearly as this post on the “Jesus is a Zebra” blog.

Quiz: The Sabbath in Acts 13 – Part 2

Still life with Bible, Vincent van Gogh

Acts 13:42-44 (KJV) – And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

Hate mail from an Adventist, May 2019

Angry ant

I got some lovely hate mail from a guy called David Winston. I thought it would be good to share here. It shows how nasty Adventists can be, and how their hatred blinds them to any factual evidence contrary to their way of viewing the world.

Acts 13 – Returning to hear Paul the next sabbath?

Donkey, Boston Public Library

If Paul observed Sunday and wasn’t keeping the sabbath by preaching in the synagogues on the sabbath, why didn’t he just tell the people to come to his sermon the next day …

The 10 commandments in full

10 commandments table

What is clear from this table is that there are no deletions by anyone. Every church uses a summary for easy memorisation, but a summary does not mean they have removed anything from the Bible.

Sabbath rest or sabbath worship? – Part 2

Troll, via Uncyclopedia

In my previous post, I looked at how the Bible never calls the sabbath a day of worship. I’ve challenged Adventists to show me where the Bible says it is a day of worship. Needless to say, there were no responses forthcoming that actually provided me with biblical evidence of the Adventist claim.

Sabbath rest or sabbath worship? – Part 1

South Arabian Sabbath lamp

If Adventists are right, even remotely right, there must be some biblical instruction in the Old Testament that the sabbath is God’s decreed day of worship. But there isn’t …

Sabbath versus circumcision – which is greater?

Lebanon Cedars, Lebanon

It is worth pointing out that in John 7:19-23, Jesus points out that circumcision takes priority over the sabbath, and lists the sabbath as an example of the law of Moses.

The Feriae of Pope Sylvester I

Pope St Sylvester I

Adventists quote a dubious medieval source that describes something Pope Sylvester may or may not have done centuries earlier. They usually don’t understand what it says.

Dishonesty in Seventh-day Adventism, Part 1 – Adventism

Adventist dishonesty according to Adventist Today

Adventist Today: “We have in this denomination nurtured a class of people who have little regard for verifiable truth. Some lie intentionally and boldly, such as those who altered that article and passed on the letter as factual. Of the rest, it is unclear to me whether they lack the ability to distinguish a spurious story from a true one, or just prefer to believe any bit of mythology that feeds their hunger for novelty, and affirms their fears. … They preferred titillating myths …”

Troll feeding, part 2

Forest Troll

Adventists are strange things indeed. Experts in deceit. Experts at trolling. Experts at saying the same misconceptions over and over without listening to explanations as to why they are wrong. E.g. why we should all go and commit adultery and murder if we consider the sabbath obsolete. As if repeating the same silly argument will make people change their minds. Intelligent discussion with them is rare, and mostly impossible. I’ve never, never come across a religion with so much dishonesty in it, and with so much dishonesty displayed by its followers.

Thus saith Ellen, part 4 – The 10 commandments

10 Commandments

These descriptions, given to Ellen White in a vision, prove that the vision was NOT given by God. If it was not given by God, who was it that gave Ellen this vision? And what was their agenda when highlighting the sabbath?

Matthew 24 – The Olivet Prophecy

South Arabian Sabbath lamp

In Matt 24, Jesus outlines the events occurring at the end of the age. Does this mean the end of the world, sometime in the future? Probably not. Jesus specified that these events would happen in the lifetime of those he was speaking to – Matt 24:34. Furthermore, Jesus did indeed come at the end of an age, according to Heb 9:26 and 1 Cor 10:11 – and then God’s relationship with Israel ended with Israel being called a harlot, and the Old Covenant came to an end.
