I asked the following question at AAA almost 3 months ago but did not get a reply. Perhaps someone here will be able to answer the question.
I got to wondering about this when I read in the SDA magazine “Signs of the Times” (Dec. 2014) that the SDA do not believe in the existence of a soul: “There is no living, conscious soul or spirit that departs the body and goes to be with God in heaven; thus, there will be no living, conscious spirit to rejoin the body either in the grave or at the time of the resurrection. When Jesus comes again, He will re-create both our minds and our bodies so that we are the same people who went into the grave, but with youthful, immortal minds and bodies.”
The Catholic Church recognizes SDA as fellow Christians on the basis of their baptism, but if they don’t believe they have a soul for the baptism to affect, how can they be Christian?
