I am a former SDA. Are there any other former SDAs here?
Welcome aboard, Andrew!
I wasn't one, but one of the seniors I work with is, and he is one of the friendliest men I have ever met. Sadly he has slight dementia now. He's always asking people where in the Bible does it say to worship on the first day of the week. He then says the reformers changed the Sabbath to bring in the worshipers of the sun god baal. Everyone then looks awkwardly at each other and continues doing what they were doing. Welcome!
Sort of a 'short' intro, but welcome anyway, Andrew!
I am not a former SDA but I am in frequent dialog with one. She is trying to bring me to SDA as I am working on bringing her to Reformed Presbyterian. She is a very godly lady. Welcome to the board. Let me know if you ever need book suggestions on specific topics.
Hi Andrew! Welcome!
I’m curious, if you don’t mind me asking, why did you leave the SDA?
The family left when I was 4 long story
Does that mean you continued with SDA and left later? Or does "Former SDA" mean it ended at age 4?
There's no reason to make it awkward, just respond to the tune of "It doesn't." Then move on.
My family left when I was 4 but my grandmother was SDA so I went with her on and off till I was 24
her funeral was my last sda service
I have worked at a SDA hospital for the past 18 years.
Do they have pepper in the cafeteria/dining room?
Yes. Why do you ask?
My father worked at a SDA owned hospital at one point. They didn't have pepper in the cafeteria because it was considered a stimulant for men. So I was wondering if that was a universal practice or limited to that facility.
I've never been SDA, but my (adopted) daughter was in their church since her foster father was an SDA pastor. She came to stay with us when she was 10 (12 now) and she's really glad to be able to eat pork and shrimp again.
Rise, kill and eat!
