Adventist dating without birth year requirement
Seventh-day Adventists (SDAs) follow most of the beliefs of conventional conservative Christianity: creation in six days, the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden, original sin; the virgin birth; the divinity of Christ; the nature of the Trinity; belief in Satan as a rebellious created being; God's inspiration of the authors of the Bible, the inerrancy of Scriptures as they were written by their authors; the resurrection of Jesus, salvation by the atonement of Christ, considering all same-gender sexual behavior as sinful, regardless of the nature of the relationship; rejection of same-sex marriage, civil unions, etc.
However, they differ from other conservative Protestants on a number of other beliefs: This produced some conflict within the Church when research in the 1980's suggested that she had borrowed heavily from contemporary writers.
Study results indicate that un-attributed borrowing of phraseology was rather common, and even considered to be more acceptable among the nineteenth-century authors of this genre than would be acceptable in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. White in this chapter was within the acceptable standards of that era." Immortality: They deny the concept of "innate immortality".
They believe that a person is not naturally immortal.
Jesus' return: The second coming of Christ is imminent.
Believers should be ready at all times to be removed from earth to be with God in heaven.
Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life.
Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.
The unrighteous who died before the Second Coming will be resurrected and be annihilated; they will be consumed by fire from God, along with Satan and his angels. Hell exists as a lake of fire where the unrighteous are "burned up, utterly destroyed, and cease forever to exist".
Women, at times however, may face exceptional circumstances that present serious moral or medical dilemmas, such as significant threats to the pregnant woman's life, serious jeopardy to her health, severe congenital defects carefully diagnosed in the fetus, and pregnancy resulting from rape or incest.
The final decision whether to terminate the pregnancy or not should be made by the pregnant woman after appropriate consultation.
Thus, they do not believe that a person goes to heaven for an eternal reward or to hell for never-ending torture immediately upon death as do many other conservative Christian denominations.
Investigative Judgment: This refers to a process that started in 1844 CE and remains active in Heaven today.
