Return to Index Robert’s questions are very logical. Traditionally, most Seventh-day Adventists, and possibly some other groups, have thought that the three horns removed by the talking horn reader: There is a direct connection of events starting with intervention by a Catholic official that ultimately led to the war against the Vandals and later to the Ostrogoths. That resolves the question of the identity of the first two horns. However, the difficulty comes in determining the identity of the third horn because there appears to be no direct connection between the Papacy and the removal of another horn. In my research, I have found that there is a direct, though not obvious, connection to a third horn that should settle the question for SDAs. It appears that everyone, including the Catholics, have failed to see this connection, probably because of the mind set of both groups. At least some of the information for this conclusion has long been available. Among SDAs, historically the third horn has been identified as the Heruls, but more recently some have suggested the Visigoths.

However, they differ from other conservative Protestants on a number of other beliefs: Writings of Ellen White: Ellen White is recognized by the Seventh-day Adventist church as having received the gift of prophecy. The written works by Ellen White:
For those of you who accidentally come across this web page, it is designed to deal with questions of particular interest to Seventh-day Adventists and possibly some other groups with similar beliefs about the three horns which were removed from the head of the dreadful looking fourth beast described in the Bible in the book of Daniel, chapter 7.
The driver just went down, smiled and walked away without saying sorry. As a senior citizen, I remember that these protocol plates have been associated with privilege and abusive behavior exhibited by individuals driving or using these vehicles, whether government officials or persons posing as such. I remember President Rodrigo Roa Duterte who is a Maasinhon saying that he and his family and also his whole cabinet will not be using the protocol license plates.
So if our very own president feels this way, other lesser people who use such plates should follow suit. I care for my father, who is a sea guard. He even goes to work during heavy rains and bad weather. But when payroll day comes, it took him the entire day for his salary to be released. And he sometimes comes home with no single penny in his pocket. Despite this situation, he still goes to work and performs his duties.
Why is it like this? Why does it take so long for them to process their salary, but so easy and prompt to deduct the cost of their new uniforms? I even think timely salary release for domestic helpers is far better than in government!

However, they differ from other conservative Protestants on a number of other beliefs: Writings of Ellen White: Ellen White is recognized by the Seventh-day Adventist church as having received the gift of prophecy. The written works by Ellen White: Conklin appears to demonstrate that there is no proof of Ellen White’s plagiarism. These parallels are then evaluated for strength and frequency. Study results indicate that un-attributed borrowing of phraseology was rather common, and even considered to be more acceptable among the nineteenth-century authors of this genre than would be acceptable in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
The minimal borrowing by Ellen G. White in this chapter was within the acceptable standards of that era. They deny the concept of “innate immortality”. They believe that a person is not naturally immortal. When a person dies, they remain unconscious until they are resurrected.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church says: By his sin Adam, as the first man, lost the original holiness and justice he had received from God, not only for himself but for all humans. Adam and Eve transmitted to their descendants human nature wounded by their own first sin and hence deprived of original holiness and justice; this deprivation is called “original sin”. As a result of original sin, human nature is weakened in its powers, subject to ignorance, suffering and the domination of death, and inclined to sin this inclination is called “concupiscence”.
In the subculture of Seventh-day Adventism, most of the churches have a weekly Sabbath-afternoon potluck when every family brings a dish and fellowships are a couple of entrees that are unique to Adventists. One of those common dishes is the Kellogg’s Loaf. The main ingredients are cereal, cottage cheese, and eggs.
Recently the subject of guys and breakups came up and Sabrina and I went back and forth about what guys generally go through when they breakup. Simple enough to say, but I know plenty of women will talk about how some guy came off like an insensitive jackass after the relationship fell apart because of his actions post-breakup. If a guy is profoundly obnoxious or terrible after a breakup, it is most often a testament to how rough the breakup was on him.
Some people cope by lashing out. Jerry Seinfeld once said that breaking up a relationship needs to be like taking off a Band-aid — One motion: In the same regard, when a relationship ends, it is much much harder for a guy to go back and discuss and revisit and talk through and explain, etc. Personally, I have had breakups where I pretty much went cold. I wanted her to be OK, I wanted good things for her in life, but I knew that nothing was going to make the situation better.
No discussion was going to fix things, no clarity was to be had — it would have just been an emotional toilet for both of us. I realize it probably came off jerky, but when I cut off communication, my heart is in the right place.

J ames Delingpole calls it TideGate. The New York Times says nothing just like last time. At Aden, sea levels trends are rising at a pitifully small quarter of a millimeter a year during the twentieth century. The lower estimate is minus five hundreths of a millimeter a year. This, they say, agrees with other things like… coastal morphology, stratigraphy, radiocarbon dating, archaeological remains, and historical documentation.

The agreements show a clear pattern of hourly rates paid from a few cents to a few dollars an hour above the award while penalty rates are slashed or non-existent, leaving workers worse off. The revelations have been deeply embarrassing for the SDA, renowned for its conservative social agenda. They have also been embarrassing for the ACTU and Labor which has been campaigning against cuts to penalty rates.
In May , an agreement between Coles and SDA was quashed in a landmark Fair Work Commission because it underpaid workers, failing the ‘better off overall test’. Coles workers are now employed on an older agreement from which is currently being challenged by Ms Vickers in the Fair Work Commission. Mr Wood, QC, for Coles, told the Fair Work Commission that at least 40 per cent of workers would be worse off if the Coles agreement was terminated and they were instead paid minimum award wages.
That indicates up to 60 per cent would be better off if the agreement was terminated and they were instead paid award rates. A Coles spokesman declined to comment further as the case was ongoing. Mr Wood also revealed that Coles wanted to start bargaining with the SDA to strike a new workplace deal. It has refused to bargain for the last year and any new deal would replace the agreements mired in controversy over sub-award penalty rates and other conditions.
Criticism of the Seventh-day Adventist Church
Major critics[ edit ] One of the most prominent early critics of the church was D. Canright , an early leader in the movement in the late 19th century who apostatized and recanted but later left and became a Baptist pastor. In the middle of the 20th century, evangelical Walter Martin and the Christian Research Institute concluded that the Seventh-day Adventist church is a legitimate Christian body with some heterodox doctrines and stated, “They are sound on the great New Testament doctrines including grace and redemption through the vicarious offering of Jesus Christ ‘once for all’.
Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs organized in six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life & last day events.
Theological spectrum[ edit ] A theological spectrum exists within Adventism, with several different theological streams existing alongside the mainstream. The conservative “historic” movement holds to certain traditional positions that have been challenged since the s. By contrast, progressive Adventists typically question some of the church’s distinctive teachings, and some of the fundamental beliefs of the church that are held by mainstream Adventists.
The Adventist Theological Society describes its beliefs as “balanced and conservative Adventist theology”,  whereas the Adventist Society for Religious Studies is more progressive by comparison. In Seventh-day Adventists Answer Questions on Doctrine , four authors outlined the core doctrines that they share with Protestant Christianity.
That God is the Sovereign Creator, upholder, and ruler of the universe, and that He is eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. That the Scriptures are the inspired revelation of God to men; and that the Bible is the sole rule of faith and practice. That the Holy Spirit is a personal being, sharing the attributes of deity with the Father and the Son.

Young Earth Creationists Say Yes! Read the article on one page Although most mainstream scientists and most of the developed world now accept the theory of evolution and the scientifically established age of Earth and the universe, there is still a group of people that resist the status quo and insist, based on a particular literal interpretation of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible, that the universe is only 6, years old and was created in six literal days.
This has, of course, been a common belief in Christian circles for most of the history of the faith, but the modern Young Earth Creationist movement has relatively recent origins in the Seventh Day Adventist movement. The prevalence of Young Earth Creationism in the United States is also related to the history of Christianity in the United States, from the founding of the Republic to the culture wars which have raged for the past few decades.
Public Domain Guessing and Dating the Age of the Universe For the first years of Christian history, belief in a literal six-day creation and a world that was a few thousand years old was widespread within Christendom. This is because, until the early Modern Period, there was no reason to think otherwise. The early Church Fathers and Medieval theologians did not know about radiometric dating or how rock layers formed, so a few thousand years was a reasonable guess for the age of the universe.
In , the Anglican archbishop James Ussher calculated that the world was created around BC based on the genealogies recorded in the book of Genesis. In terms of what was known about human history and the history of the universe at the time, this was a perfectly reasonable date.
