Gospel to SDA

Jesus-On-The-Cross-jesus-24749131-1024-768

 

The gospel is very simple, Paul details the true pure Gospel of Jesus Christ in 1 Corinthians 15:

 

“1 Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” 1 Cor 15:1-4 ESV

 

We are not to add to this and we are certainly not to contradict it (Gal 1:8).  That said, sometimes we do have to take a page out of Pauls book and meet people where they are at like he did the Greeks on Mars Hill (Acts 17:22-34).  When I share the gospel with SDA I have found it helps to contrast it with the false SDA gospel so that they can see the difference for themselves.

 

In person I try to go into greater detail, but below I’ve pasted a short simple post I use on the internet from time to time:

 

The reason SDA are wrong is that they teach a false gospel. See Gal 1:8, SDA teach if you fail to keep the sabbath after probation you’re damned and have the mark of the beast.

 

The bible says we are not saved by works of the law (Rom 3:20). Jesus died carrying our sins to the grave and rose on the third day. Conquering sin and death.

 

Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins and place your trust in Christ and Christ alone.

 

The Sabbath will not give you salvation.

The Sabbath will not give you extra assurance for the end times.

The Sabbath is no different than circumcision. The Bible says the Sabbath is obsolete.

(Col 2:16)(Heb 9:1, 4)(Heb 8:7, 13)(Gal 3:10)(Eph 2:8-10)(1 Cor 15:1-6)(2 Cor 3:4-15)(2 Cor 5:21)

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.  If you wish to use this then go for it, the more the merrier.  If you have advice or a better blurb you wish to share, by all means please do so.

  1. You say “repent of your sins”, but the Sabbath command is still in force…it’s still called the “sabbath” in the NT and in Luke 23:56 “they rested on the sabbath according the commandment”…Sin is the transgression of the law (1 Jn 3:4) YOU need to repent of breaking the commandment regarding the sabbath!!

    Hello. I really enjoy your posts. My whole family is Seventh day Adventist. My sister is a fundamentalist. Cherry picks the Bible. Doesn’t work. Lives off the state. But I am the sinner because I don’t believe in the SDA. My brother just got out of prison for pedophilia.My mom and dad bless their hearts believe whole hearted in the SDA. Is there anything that you can send me or my sister about how much information about The SDA church is false. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Especially about the Sabbath day and Ellen G. White being a false prophet.

    What do you tell the sdas who say “oh yes, of course, we are saved by Grace but we show evidence we are saved by obedience and that includes keeping the Sabbath. They are trying their best to deny they keep the Sabbath because it is required (and we all know it is a absolute requirement for sdas) so they are saying they only keep it out of love.

      First off evidence of sanctification (good works) is subjective not objective. So you can’t say no Christians ever lie for example. Same would be true even if the Sabbath was still law.

      Second, if they are saying we are saved by grace then they must also believe Ellen White is a false prophet. Because she taught that you must be perfect without a mediator at the close of probation to be saved.

      In all honesty though, if they have faith in Christ for their salvation and not the Sabbath then that’s what’s most important.
