The Satanic Seventh-day Adventist Religion
(And heretic evangelist Paul Washer)
by David J. Stewart | November 2017
Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.”
There is not a more satanic false religion than Seventh-day Adventism (SDA). Their literature writers are clever, slick, cunning, and deceptive as the Devil himself. Let me prove it to you from their own words.
I have a Seventh-day Adventist book in front of me titled, “Christ's Object lessons.” In the chapter titled, “Without A Wedding Garment,” based upon the parable from Matthew 22:1-14, we read on page 134 the satanic lie that a person gets to Heaven by “HIS DEEDS.” (And please notice that this is exactly the same demonic heresy that Calvinists are teaching, like Evangelist Paul Washer)...
“It is while men are still dwelling upon the earth that the work of investigative judgment takes place in the courts of heaven. The lives of all His professed followers pass in review before God. All are examined according to the record of the books of heaven, and according TO HIS DEEDS the destiny of each is forever fixed. By the wedding garment in the parable is represented the pure, spotless character which Christ's true followers will possess. To the church it is given 'that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white.' 'not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.' Eph. 5:27. The fine linen, says the Scripture, 'is the righteousness of saints.' Rev. 19:8. It is the righteousness of Christ, His own unblemished character, that through faith is imparted to all who receive Him as their personal Saviour.” [emphasis added]

Did you discern what is very wrong with what you just read? It should be obvious to many of you. The writer of the preceding information is attributing the believer's righteousness for salvation to the fruit of the Spirit, instead of Jesus' precious blood shed for our sins on the cross! Read the preceding paragraph again, and you'll see that the writer is claiming once you trust Christ, then Christ's righteous CHARACTER is formed in you, and without that CHARACTER, you won't be allowed into Heaven. In other words, according to SDA's if you don't become a follower of Jesus in addition to becoming a child of God, you won't go to Heaven. They are claiming that if you are saved, then you WILL live for Jesus, and if you don't you're not saved. This is works for salvation.
Ladies and gentleman, this is exactly what knucklehead Paul Washer teaches...
“And so how do you know you are saved? ... Paul says, 'I'll tell you what's the evidence of whether or not you are saved' ... 'Are you a new creature? Has God changed you from the inside out?' You see, Salvation is not: 'I have made my decision.' Salvation is, God literally (this is not poetry), God literally does a supernatural recreating work in a Christian, takes out his God-hating heart—a heart that doesn't care about God, that doesn't care about His Word, that doesn't care about prayer, that doesn't care about seeking Him, that doesn't care about walking with Him, that doesn't care about keeping His commandments—and puts in the place of that wicked, defiled, heart; a new heart, recreated in the image of God, and true righteousness and true holiness, a new heart that desires God and wants to please Him, and know Him and seek Him. ... an entirely new creature!” [emphasis added]

What a theological liar! Salvation is a decision—a decision to trust Christ's sacrificial DEATH on the cross as payment for your sins, believing that He was BURIED and RESURRECTED three days later. This is “THE GOSPEL” as defined in 1st Corinthians 15:1-6. How else can you be saved if you don't make a decision to get saved? Salvation is a supernatural miracle of God in response to a man's faith in the Gospel. That requires a decision! So salvation is: I have made my decision! I have made my decision to place my confidence in the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen for my sins!!!
And so, Paul Washer is saying that if you don't have the CHARACTER of Jesus Christ after being saved for a length of time, you are not really saved. I'm just going by his own words. Mr. Washer teaches the same heresy as the SDA's, that a changed life is mandatory to be saved. Please read again the teachings of Seventh-day Adventism and Paul Washer, compare what they teach, and see if what I am saying is not the truth! I am not saying that Mr. Washer is a Seventh-day Adventist. Clearly he is not. My point is that all false religions share the same common denominator, that is, they claim behavior modification is required to be saved. Dr. Bob Jones Sr. used to rightly say that there are only two religions in the world: LIVE and DO, or DO and LIVE. I suppose in view of the preceding heresy by SDA's and Paul Washer, we could say they are teaching LIVE, DO and LIVE, which effectively is still DO and LIVE. Either way, works are required to be saved, they say. Paul Washer even foolishly states that works are necessary to avoid going to Hell...
“No, no, if you don't have works, you're going to Hell!”

Biblically, we LIVE (are saved) by faith alone in Christ, and then the Holy Spirit changes us. If we obey the Lord as His child, and yield to His indwelling Holy Spirit in us, then we will walk in that Spirit. But we have A CHOICE, just as we chose to receive the free gift of eternal life. Following Christ as His disciple is a second choice that God wants us to make, as His child, already saved (Romans 12:1). The teaching that a believer who does not DO is not saved (i.e., has never been alive in Christ) is of the Devil. This is what SDA's and Paul Washer are teaching. They are adding and requiring discipleship for salvation, which is totally unbiblical.
Some time ago an evangelist traveling was singing to himself the song, ”I'm Redeemed.” A fellow passenger, hearing, joined him in the song. After singing, the evangelist put the question to the stranger, ”Have you been redeemed?” ”Yes, praise the Lord,” was the answer. ”May I ask how long ago?” ”Nearly 2,000 years ago.” The astonished evangelist echoed in surprise, ”2,000 years ago?” ”Yes, Sir,” said his fellow passenger, ”but I'm sorry to say it's not much more than a year that I have known it.” So many people for whom Christ died are still unaware that the great redemptive act of our Lord was for them.
My friend, Satan is a beautiful liar. SDA's are known for singing beautiful hymns, excellent schools and their emphasis on good health. This good natured atmosphere attracts a lot of sincere people, who become victims of the Devil. SDA is an Illuminati, endtimes, New World Order, false religion. Instead of relying solely upon God's imputed righteousness, which is through faith alone in Jesus Christ, they rely upon their personal righteous character, which they claim faith in Christ produces in them. Effectively, this is mere self-righteousness. Romans 10:3-4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” SDA's are going about to ESTABLISH THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!
And sadly, so also is John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Chip Ingram, Paul Washer and other hellbound Calvinists!
And may I say confidently, there is no such Biblical doctrine as “investigative judgment.” This is a doctrine of devils exclusive to seventh-day Adventism. It basically claims that in the year 1844, Jesus entered into the Holy Place in Heaven, to begin His work of investigating each believer on earth, to determine whether we are worthy or not for Heaven. Folks, that is salvation by works, but by faith as the Bible teaches! You see, your best works are filth to God (Isaiah 64:6). Even one sin is enough to keep you out of Heaven (James 2:10; Revelation 21:27). Therefore, you desperately need a perfect Savior, someone Who can pay your debt of sin. My friend, Jesus has done that FOR YOU and me, and everyone! Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay! JESUS PAID IT ALL!!! So the very suggestion that the manner in which you live has something to do with going to Heaven is satanic! Jesus paid it all, because YOU COULDN'T, and neither could I, nor anyone else! Only Jesus is the sinless Lamb of God!!!
If you follow Paul Washer or Seventh-day Adventists, you WILL go to Hell when you die forever, because you don't get saved by the life you live, nor does your deeds (works) have any part in saving or proving that you are saved.
On page 180, the SDA book I have exposed says that the parable of the Ten Virgins is about the same self-righteousness...
The class represented by the foolish virgins... They have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus, and permitted their old nature to be broken up.

What a lie! The foolish virgins weren't left behind because their old nature hadn't yet changed. No, they were foolish virgins because they didn't have any oil, and that oil symbolizes the indwelling Holy Spirit. That is, they weren't saved at all. They were religious folks, similar to Seventh-day Adventists. They came to the wedding. They were sincere. They meant well like the religious group in Matthew 7:21-23, but they didn't have any oil, because they had never been born-again! Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” The Holy Bible warns everyone repeatedly that Satan has blinded the minds of unbelievers (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4), to hinder them from seeing the clarity and simplicity of the Gospel (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4), lest seeing the Good News of Christ crucified on the cross, buried and bodily risen the third day, they might be saved by faith alone! The choice is yours alone to make!!!
of the child of God is that he loves everybody!”
