    I am a former SDA. Are there any other former SDAs here?

    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!

    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?

    Does that mean you continued with SDA and left later? Or does "Former SDA" mean it ended at age 4?

    Welcome Andrew!

    There's no reason to make it awkward, just respond to the tune of "It doesn't." Then move on. ;)

    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.

    Welcome!

    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. ;)
