My girlfriend is a SDA, at the beginning of our relationship she would say that we as Catholics were wrong for changing the sabbath, that we were wrong bc church was just an hour, that we were committing idolatry, and baptizing infants were wrong. She had more stuff but that was those were the major ones.
So I started doing my research, we were reading the Bible, as time went along, she said my church allows women to get contraception. I said that’s not biblical. Each time we would read a verse that stated how God wanted somebody to multiply and have a lot of family, I would tell her see, contraception forbids you to multiply. Her response was well they never preach it from the pulpit, I told her but the fact that your church allows it, it is not biblical. So we kept reading, and here in the forums, a former SDA put a up a thread about SDA. I told him about their stance on contraception, he replied, that’s nothing. Well the SDA church allows for abortion. The way they worded made me sick. Basically if the baby in the womb is sick according to the doctors, a woman can pray to the Holy Spirit and they can have an abortion after praying. I told my girlfriend about it and she was shocked, she couldn’t fight anymore.
The other day I told her look you need to make a decision. I showed her in the bible how Mary didn’t have more kids, things that they teach, I showed her how Mary is the ark of the New Testament. But before showing her this I read to her Luke 16:10-13 which states, he who is faithful to the small stuff is faithful on the big stuff. He who is unfaithful in the small stuff will be unfaithful in the big stuff. My gf is very sensitive, so she cried after I was showing catholic truths on the Bible only.
She then told me, idk that SDA church is teaching the truth anymore, but idk if I can ever be catholic bc I don’t feel it in my heart. I told her, Hun, you love God let him guide you.
SDA members need to understand that their in a church that teaches hate and lies.
