The Seventh Day Adventist Church requires their followers to abstain from eating pork meat and other certain unclean animals found in the Old Testament Levitical Law that was given to Israel. And yet, the apostle Paul, who at one time also kept the Old Testament Law of Moses, now teaches the New Testament Church the following,
“Don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink.” Colossians 2:16 NLT
“You may eat any meat that is sold in the marketplace without raising questions of conscience. For “the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” 1. Corinthians 10:25-26 NLT
God also told the apostle Peter in a vision that he was allowed to eat all sorts of (unclean) animals.
“Peter went up on the flat roof to pray. It was about noon, and he was hungry. But while a meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. He saw the sky open, and something like a large sheet was let down by its four corners. In the sheet were all sorts of animals, reptiles, [...]

The Bible says the following about cults like the Seventh Day Adventist Church,
“These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.” 2. Corinthians 11:13-15 NLT
The apostle Paul also said this,
“Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.” Galatians 1:8-9 NLT
After a Seventh Day Adventist prophet named William Miller falsely predicted that Jesus Christ would return in 1843, the Adventist Church covered up that lie by proposing that Jesus was unable to return because He was engaged in an “Investigative [...]

According to the dictionary Sabbath means:
A day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by Jewish people from Friday evening to Saturday evening.
How many times over the years I have heard religious believers saying that God wants you to keep the Sabbath, since He Himself rested on the seventh day. Oh really?
But the Bible doesn’t teach that at all. It’s just another lie!
Under the Old Testament Law of Moses, the Israelites were commanded to keep the Sabbath rest as is written,
“Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you. For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them; but on the seventh day He [...]

Because Jesus Christ ended the system of the law with its commandments and regulations when He died on the cross! (See Ephesians 2:15)
The apostle Paul said this,
“I was a member of the Pharisees, who demand the strictest obedience to the Jewish law. I was so zealous that I harshly persecuted the church. And as for righteousness, I obeyed the law without fault. I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” Philippians 3:5-9 NLT
“Yes, the old requirement about the priesthood was set aside because it was weak and useless. For [...]

Look here, you rich people: You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every desire. The very wealth you are counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This corroded treasure you have hoarded will testify against you on the day of judgment.
You say to yourself, ‘I have stored up enough good things to last for years to come. Live it up! Eat, drink, and enjoy!” But God says to you, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’ Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God!
Those who are rich trust in their wealth and boast of their great achievements. And yet they cannot redeem themselves from death by paying a ransom to God. Indeed, you can never pay God enough to stay alive forever and safe yourself from death. Those who are rich die, leaving all their wealth behind. The grave is their eternal damnation where they will stay [...]
