The seventh-day is the seventh-day. What is so hard about that? SDA are hung up on the same things the Pharisees felt hypocritically passionate about long ago before their ecumenical overthrow by he hand of God.

Most dark-skinned people who are members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church have no idea of what Ellen White (their revered prophetess and infallible interpreter of Scripture) said about them. She even mentioned that Negro slaves would become like animals--as though they had never existed at the point of physical death. Moreover, she said that black people and animals are related through amalgamation (a genetic impossibility). Cults always lessen the glory and majesty of our divine Creator.

There was a day that I agreed with this statement. In fact there was a day that I would have stated it even more strongly using words that I no longer choose to say. But I have since learned a bit more about slavery. Before I was a christian I thought that I had freedom. After all I had the freedom to choose for myself what I did, what I ate and drank and freedom to spend my money any way that I choose.

However... what is true freedom? Is freedom the lack of any restrictions? Does the possibility of having no restrictions give me freedom? No... not at all!

Do people who use illegal drugs have true freedom? No way. The use of illegal drugs brings not freedom but bondage. How many are hooked on illegal drugs and cannot get free. Howe many die each year from addiction leading to overdose? Did the use of illegal drugs give freedom to people such as Elvis, or Michael Jackson or millions of others? Do illegal drugs give a better quality of life? The facts are clear... no they do not and in fact they shorten life and drain what the users already had.

What about cigarets? Do they extend life or improve the quality of life? And what about murder or theft? Do they improve the quality of life? So what is true freedom? Jesus said that He had come to set His people free? But what kind of freedom does He have to offer? For those who are serious about what He taught He came first of all to set us free from the power of sin. So what is the big deal about that? Sin is like a big weight that we carry around that will one day catch up to us. When I was young I denied it's existence and mocked those who were christians.

However I will use an example to try and explain why we need free from sin. Lets suppose that you were a young guy and you were driving with a car load of other young people. ANd being young and looking for some excitement the group decides to outrun a train to the train crossing. Unfortunately before it was finished three young people spill their blood on the streets. Sadly this has happened to many times. We lost six kids at grad in my home town some years back. Where can one find peace and freedom to live after such an event? We can ask for forgiveness from their families but in reality they do not even likely want to talk to you let alone see you... So where can you find freedom? You had the freedom to do the act... but with that freedom came bondage.

In the end... you may mock me... but in reality Jesus is the only place that you can find freedom in this world.

Dear PolyKing:

Can I ever identify with you. Way back when I was in my twenties I thought that Seventh Day Adventists were completely deceived. The more I heard about them the more I believed that they were mental cases. After all why would a loving God ever tell His followers what to eat and what not to eat. Ludicrous! And that wrong day of the week !!! Nonsense. What a bunch of weirdos!

Well one day God knocked on my hearts door and I began reading the Bible. In fact for several years I wore out a Bible seeking after the truths that were writen therin. The Bible is clear enough for anyone who is willing to surrender and God will give them the power to live the truths that He has recorded for His people. Here are some of the things that I learned. If you begin at Genesis and read the entire Bible through you will discover for yourself that God's people not only worshiped Him on the seventh day of the week starting in Genesis... but will worship Him in the new earth on Sabbath.

But that is not my burden now... Dear Poly King the day will come for you, as it did for me, that you will discover that you have no foundation for your life and no HOPE! What will you do then? Will you even have time to find that foundation? I am praying that God will grant you that time. There was a day that I mocked christians and was where you are now... I would not trade places with you for anything. What hope do you have when you face cancer or a heart attack? Is religion some prop that gives false security? No way. Christianity is not us seeking after God... it is God seeking after us and our willingness to surrender... or not.

Jesus said... behold I stand at the door[of your heart]and knock... if any man hears my voice and opens the door I will come in and sup with Him and He with me. He is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. He wants you to come into fellowship with Him. Christianity is not about going to church... it is abou6t having "fellowship" with the living God. That is why I am a christian and that Is why I KNOW that it is true.

I realize that you likely do not hear His voice right now... I didn't when I mocked SDA's... but... the day came for me and it will for you. In that day you will discover that you will hear the voice of God Himself as you open the words that He has written in His own book the Bible.

Really hurts me to say this but i agree with you lol. that is exactly what the elite want...division! so you got all these people running around talking like parrots saying the religion is the true religion. they looking for an escape route for all the bad things they've done in their life and for someone to save them from life changing events. the bible is the youngest ancient scriptures, there were much left out and it is just borrowed info from older ancient scriptures. All the answers are inside of a person. they just need to take the time to search within, its called meditation!

Damn dude you got some issues! im sorry to hear of such a life changing event! The only thing you can do is mourn and grieve until you have feel every emotion that derives from such an event until it alleviates from your mind AND your body. The power isnt in jesus its already in YOU. Life does go on and time does heal! Sorry to say but i think jesus is a cop out, he is bondage! Because your giving your power away to something outside of you instead of using the power inside of you! Instead of praising something outside of you try praising your damn self! thats where YOUR life starts and ends. Bible said that god made you in the image of god. Because you are a god. we have the power in us from birth! we were also born free! Everything we need is already built in us, all we have to do is know thy self thats what will set us free!
As for illegal drugs...why is marijuana illegal? It hasnt killed anybody and in fact pharmacy companys use it and its used to heal cancer and many more body dis-eases! Yet cigarettes and alcohol are legal but they kill many! Alot of things in this world is backwards even the damn english language.
TRUE FREEDOM is a FREE-DOME! Whats a dome? Your mind! That is the only thing that can keep us enslaved. When we chose to take on MAN-MADE religion we enslave our minds! Now you can believe in it if you choose but how do you know what you believe in even existed? because the pastor said the bible is the gods word? and that he is doing gods work? come on man! All it is...is good business! Have a look around churchs are nothing but money making enterprises who prey on vulnerable people. Most people are just born into it. I was. Christians are some of the unhappiest and BIGGEST LIARS i know, so if you say the devil just testing you then who the hell are you praying to?? Go within yourself, you already have the answers inside of you.

Really... Does this mean that you have the cure for Aids or Heart attacks and cancer? Or how about Diabetes? Please do tell the medical system so that they will know how to heal people. The medical system seems to have no idea how to prevent these diseases... WOW !!! You will likely receive a Pulitzer prize for this!

Seriously... God has shown His people how to prevent these diseases. Seventh Day Adventist's live an average of 7 years longer than the general public and SDA's who are more serious about their diet live about 11 years longer than the general public as determined by studies in California. I am not trying to put anyone down or blow our own horn but am making a statement that when anyone follows the health principles as outlined in the Bible that they live longer. Those principles are some 6000 years old. Only God could have known what we are just starting to find out about health all these years latter.

And by the way... take a minute to ask yourself an honest question.... do you "really" like what is inside of you? Seriously?
I want to be better than that!
