I don't know. I guess none of them have taken it up.
I used to live next door to a girl and her mother that were 7th day.
They took the no work on the Sabbath to a length I had never heard of. They actually would open up canned spagetti and put it in the fridge. Then on Sat they would eat the cold spagetti!
No cooking, no openeing the can like it was some sort of work.
Yuck.
Back in those days I felt so sorry for them.
I remember being addicted to DR Pepper then and I once offered the girl some. She told me they couldn;t drink it. Again I was stunned. I was newly married and only 18 and didn;t know about any religion other than Luthernas then.

I looked up the forum on 7 day Adventists it's only a positive way to know them better. Aren't they extreme like jw's? Do they disfellowship? Is there a forum that exposes them like jw's?

#QUESTION: what is the difference between JW and SEVEN DAY ADVENTISTS?

The Adventist place no special emphasis on God's name Jehovah, but Jehovah's Witnesses highlight the divine name in their preaching work.

Seven Day Adventist SDA keep a weekly Sabbath and believe Saturday is to be observed and no work shall be performed. Jehovah's Witnesses believe the weekly Sabbath was only for the Jewish nation is is not required for Christian.

SDA's believe Jesus is God himself. JWs do believe his is God's son and not Almighty God himself. Seventh Day Adventist officially believe in the trinity. Jehovah's Witnesses reject the trinity as unscriptural.

Adventists prohibited coffee and similar drinks; Jehovah's Witnesses only prohibit eating food that has blood in it e.g. black pudding.

SDA have dietry restrictions based on Jewish law (they do not eat pork, shrimps):
Jehovah's Witnsses have no dietry restrictions (apart from a prohibition ingesting blood)

Tithes are used to pay ministers in Adventist churches whereas JW voluntary contributions are used to pay for the congregation hall needs and printing Bibles and giving international aid when needed. JW Elders are not paid.

Adventist have not religious restriction on the use of blood
Jehovah's Witnesses view blood as sacred and do not accept blood transfusions.

The Adventists claim that the writings of Ellen White are "a continuing and authoritative source of truth" whereas Jehovah's Witnesses base their faith soley on the Bible and place no man ( nor woman) in the spotlight.

The Seventh Day Adventists will participate in warfare by going into the military in “non-combatant” positions. Jehovah's Witnesses refuse both to participate in war or to "learn war".

Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in abortion whereas Adventists will allow abortion if the child is the result of rape of incest or if the child is severely disabled

Lol true, but I know about what is true.

Jehovah's Witnesses believe in an Almighty Creator, identified in the bible as Jehovah. They believe the bible is God's inspired word. Jehovah's Witnesse ARE Christian; they believe that Jesus is God's son (not God himself) and the only hope for mankind. They preach that God's Kingdom is a govenment under christ that will one day transform the earth into a paradise garden where all people can live happily. The preach because they believe the bible commands them to.(Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 20:20).

If I had to be one, I'd be 7th day because

Though regarded by some as a high control group, Seventh-day Adventists are easing up on their mind control tactics. Around 2000 they stopped disfellowshipping members and simply 'Drop Membership' for followers that choose to leave. They have never advocated shunning to the extent that the Watchtower presently insists on.

I forgot where I got that from, but it's not my quote

I work with a SDA he is a vegetarian,drinks coffee,beleives Ellen White's prophesies,doesent celebrate christmas,easter or birthdays,observes the sabbath,won't drink alcohol,remains neutral ie won't vote or go to war he has given me alot of material to digest and i compare it with the bible,and what the jw's preach,he and his family don't go to a church because he says they have let worldly practices creep in such as wearing jewellry,i went to his place two weeks ago and met his travelling pastorPaul Godfrey we had a great discussion about the word of GOD you can view what he beleives at Paulgodfrey@souldecisions.org also i am currently reading prophet of the end about Ellen White and how satan has deceived the world,very interesting,also i read God's channel of truth is it the watchtower(no its not my opinion)about a family of JW's who end up converting to SDA when visited by a SDA pastor who shows them with scriptures what the wts teaches is wrong.Don't forget the SDA and JW's were together until CT Russell had a fallout with Nelson Barbour.

But one thing the witnesses don't obey which is evident from this post is Proverbs 27 [2] "May a stranger , and not your own mouth praise you, may a foreigner and not your own lips do so."

Self praise is no recommendation...And while you are busy praising yourself, you forget to praise Jehovah.

Seventh day adventists used to be extreme, but they are not any longer. They have schools, hospitals, colleges, and are fully integrated with the countries they live in. Witnesses are seen as a sect, because they have an oppositional stance with their home societies. 7th day adventists are seen as a denomination, because they are accepted/accepting of their home societies.
