The end times stuff always scared me as a kid. Why did he say it was just discovered? Adventists have been teaching that for a while now.
We're you ever taught about the national Sunday law?

Yes, and that used to worry me too, especially when the local K-Mart was forced to close on Sundays. But right now Obama is having secret meetings with the Pope. Or so says my brother the Holy Advent preacher!

The pope was always behind everything evil. He would gain control of the world and make worshiping on the Sabbath illegal or whatever. That would be God's last test or whatever. (Adventists seem to forget about Jews and other Sabbath keepers.)

As an Adventist, I looked down on anyone who wasn't an SDA. They didn't have the "Sabbath truth" or the "health message."

RE: I'm a former _______.
None of the above. I was never really raised to think that a belief or a faith was anything other than an adopted philosophy to either commit one's self to or not. It kind of makes the study of different faiths very interesting and informative. Shy

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

Who is this Egg White of whom you speak?

How come God didn't tell Egg White about sugar when He outlined the health message? Those Adventist pot suck lunches serve more sugar than I normally eat in any month! More desserts than real food.

Who is this Egg White of whom you speak?

Ellen G Harmon got hit in the head with a rock in her early teens and started seeing visions shortly there after. She later married James White and became E.G. White to the faithful. It has been proven that most of her works was plagiarized but it is still considered sacred by the faithful. She died in 1917 or so. But every once in a while someone finds New Light in her work!

And cheese. Oh my. Egg white spoke against cheese too, but it's used a lot. Speaking of food, we also weren't allow to have unclean meats. Did you grow up with fake meat? "Big franks", superlinks, "Swiss steak", FriChik, Boca burgers, etc? I do know some people did eat real stuff as long as it was clean like beef or fish or chicken.

I spent three years in Academy and one year at Union College in Lincoln Nebraska, we called the fake meat all kinds of different things. Isn't Boca Burgers a new thing? Of course I am 70 years old and have been away from that shit for 30 years or more, but don't remember Boca burgers until last year when my oldest brother died and I went back to be with the family and that was served. Kelloggs Foods was first formed to make such crap. Dr Kellogg was one of the founders of the Advent Church but when he didn't give all his profits to the church he was more or less pushed out.
