A Response to the VideoDiscern Fact from Fiction

A Response to the Video:
Seventh-day Adventism — The Spirit Behind the Church

by Bob Pickle

This book is a response to a video put together by five former Adventist preachers, a video attacking the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Ellen White. The 200+ replies in A Response to the Video are thorough, biblical, and well-documented. It's all yours for only $9.95, plus shipping (calculated on the Check Out page). 8.5" x 11"; 160 pp.

Got friends who are asking questions? Have they seen web sites, books, or this video? Are they troubled by the allegations made by former Adventist preachers like Mark Martin, Dale Ratzlaff, and Sydney Cleveland, and by the book The White Lie? You know that there are answers to their questions, but you're not sure where. A Response to the Video is for you!

Not an Adventist, but you're doing a little research on Adventism and its doctrines, trying to find out if it's a cult or not? But how will you make an informed decision if you've never heard the other side of the case?

What other side, you ask? Take for example all the criticisms on this video. Presumably they're some of the best in existence today. Yet in reality, not one single criticism meets the three-fold test of being true and relevant and biblical.

Let the truth be known: Some of the very arguments used against Adventism have been used by skeptics against Scripture for centuries. To choose to not be an Adventist is one thing. To try to refute Adventism with arguments that undermine the authority of Scripture is quite another.

A Response to the Video contains 239 replies organized into the following sections:

  1. Initial Points
  2. The Millerite Movement
  3. The Role of Mrs. White and Her Writings
  4. Her Predictions and Views
  5. The Investigative Judgment and Shut Door, and Their Ramifications
  6. Bible Versions and Footnotes
  7. Other Doctrines; the Jehovah's Witnesses
  8. Jehovah's Witnesses, Cont.; Plagiarism
  9. Health Counsel, Wigs, and the Reform Dress
  10. Salvation, Grace, and Obedience
  11. Salvation, Cont.; Conditional Immortality
  12. The Seal of God and the Mark of the Beast
  13. Sunday vs. the Lord's Day, and the Scapegoat
  14. Wrapping Up the Case
  15. Testimonials, Documentation, and the Video Jacket

A Response to the Video gets right to the point on a host of topics dealing with Adventist history and teachings. Yes, the biblical Day of Atonement was likely in October in 1844 after all (pp. 17-19). Actually, many critics of William Miller today have more in common with his views on the second coming than with the views of his opponents (p. 16). No, Mrs. White didn't plagiarize (and neither did Matthew, Mark, and Luke), and there never was any lawsuit (pp. 75-77). Strangely enough, some of the quotes attributed to her in the video either were from books she didn't write, were altered, or don't exist (p. 13). Sometimes all you have to do is fill in a few ellipses here and read a little context there to discover that the truth is the opposite of the allegation (e.g. pp. 35, 36, 95, 96). 

If the critics won't give you a balanced picture, then yes, you have to get the other side before deciding whether the Seventh-day Adventist church is a cult or not. And A Response to the Video is the easiest way for you to do it. You'll also get some tools to use if you need to do further research: 1) basic questions to ask the one making allegations, and 2) resources available for finding additional answers.

From the back cover, hear what one prominent Baptist preacher had to say about Seventh-day Adventists in 1987:

In a special sense the founders of your movement were people to whom God spoke. He wanted to create a special witness so that the rest of His church could look at the faithfulness of your movement. He wanted the rest of the church to say, "We could learn from them. We will be better people. We will be more obedient to our heavenly Father, and our Saviour, because we have watched the walk of the Adventists. We have watched the price they have paid. We have watched as they have been ostracized, as they have been misunderstood, as they have been slandered. But there will come a time when itís clear why they have had to go through these rather narrow channels and difficult pathways."

And God will say, "Look. See these people? The rest of you take note."

Who said that? You'll have to get the book to find out. Was he right? Get A Response to the Video, read it, and decide for yourself. Don't let someone else do your deciding for you!
