  • Nope. They are doing what is right by them.

  • I don't. I just think of them as a stricter religion, kind of like JWs.
    When I was a kid I read a book about a girl who was a SDA. I don't remember the name of it, but I'm pretty sure it was fiction. Anyway, that's what gave me that impression.
    I also had a SDA friend in high school.

  • I don't think its a cult at all really. I think it's a religion based on different beliefs and different interpretations of Jesus, the rules and translation bible, and even God.

    (Of course, I'm Wiccan so I believe there is nothing wrong with ANY religion)

  • No. It is not a cult. I'm SDA and I get this question a lot. It is quite frustrating actually.

  • No, I don't consider it a cult, though I have to admit I am not as knowledgeable about that faith as I would like to be.

  • No its not a cult. Just another way for people to have a relationship with Jesus, as well as different interpretation of the Bible.

  • Isn't that a relatively new religion? Who is their prophet?

    Answer by Anonymous at 12:41 AM on Apr. 14, 2009

  • It's actually very old. Our prophet is Ellen G. White.

    Answer by jamesmommy12 at 12:46 AM on Apr. 14, 2009

  • Not a cult, not like Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses. Just a somewhat stricter religion that goes to church on Saturday instead of Sunday, and have strict dietary laws for health reasons. Ellen G.White started the Adventist faith in 1844. Before that they were called Millerites, and believed the world was going to come to an end in that year, but Ellen G White gave them the prophesies that Jesus went from the Holy Place to the Most Holy Place of the heavenly temple and is now judging the living. When this is finished, he will return to the earth for those whose names are written in the book of the lamb (saved in other terms) and the dead in Christ will be raised first, then those who are alive will join them in the sky with Jesus and the angels.
