AN ADVENTIST DECEPTION EXPOSED
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and COMMANDING TO ABSTAIN FROM MEATS*, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 1 Timothy 4:1-4
Referring to 1 Timothy 4:1-4, some SDAs allege this:
"The word "meats" from this KJV passage means "foods," and is not referring to the issue of a flesh vs. non flesh diet."
Any reasonable person would know if we are commanded to abstain from "foods", we would starve to death. Paul is warning us about people who command us to abstain from flesh-foods --and to say otherwise is deceitful.
Let us read again those words of Paul:
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and COMMANDING TO ABSTAIN FROM MEATS*, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: Timothy 4:1-4
The people who believe and know the truth understand that Our Creator approved of His Creation when He called it "good." His judgment of "good" applied to the living creatures as well as the herbs. (See Gen 1:12; Gen 24:25)
After the flood, God blessed Noah and his sons and said unto them:
" ... Every moving thing that liveth shall be MEAT for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things."
The pride and arrogance of Adventists is astounding when they present themselves as wiser than their Creator who blessed his children and gave them flesh-meat to eat. For them to suggest that The Heavenly Father's perfect gifts are inherently harmful and must
be rejected is devilish.
ELLEN WHITE HAS COMMANDED EVERYONE TO ABSTAIN FROM MEATS:
"Let not any of our ministers set an EVIL example in the eating of FLESH MEAT. Let them and their families live up to the light of Health Reform." CDF p.399
"The LORD has given instruction that the Gospel is to be carried forward; and the GOSPEL INCLUDES HEALTH REFORM in all its phases." CDF p.75
The light God has given on HEALTH REFORM is for our
SALVATION and the salvation of the world." CDF p.461
God gave the light on HEALTH REFORM and those who reject it, REJECT GOD! Series B, p. 205
ADVENTISTS WILL YOU HEED THIS WARNING OF PAUL?
"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be
accursed." Gal 1:8-9 (KJV)
* MEATS = #1033 BROMA from the base of 977; food (literally or figuratively), especially
(ceremonially) articles allowed or forbidden by the Jewish law. KJV--meat, victuals. Strong.
Here, BROMA is translated meats:
"And he [Jesus] saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught,
purging all ***MEATS***?
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. Mark 7:18-23
According to Jesus, nothing we eat can defile a man.
I am not a Seventh Day Adventist (and never have been), a natural Jew, or a Catholic. I am simply the least of Christ's brethren who love Him and keep His Commandments.
