Have the Seventh-day Adventists EVER
Taught the TRUE Health Message?
Not really! The “Health Message” that is taught in the Seventh-day Adventist church is centered mainly around food - only.
Prohibition of Unclean Meats
They believe that one should not eat unclean meats, including the flesh of scavenger animals, which includes pigs, crabs, lobsters, snails, some birds, such as vultures, etc.
Adventists also generally agree that a vegetarian diet is superior to eating flesh food, and for years their institutions, including their hospitals, served only a lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet fruits, grains, vegetables, seeds, nuts, milk and dairy products and eggs. However, many of their hospitals now are reportedly serving flesh food, coffee and wine to patients who prefer them.
Promotion of Processed Foods with Many Toxins but Little Nutrition
The promotion of meat substitutes, canned gluten products that are processed in a form to resemble various meat dishes (vegeburger, Fri-chik, etc) in place of eating flesh food, is part of the SDA “Health Message” even though these products have little nutrition and are often filled with preservatives, fillers, MSG, and other harmful food additives.
Prohibition of Smoking, Drinking, Caffeine and Illicit Drugs
Adventist doctrines also include the prohibition of smoking, drinking of alcoholic beverages, and illicit drugs. Caffeinated beverages used to be off limits, but most SDA’s drink coffee and caffeinated soda. Some SDA churches are even serving coffee before the worship service on Saturday mornings.
“Lip Service” for Sunlight, Fresh Air, Proper Rest, Exercise, Elimination of Sugar, etc.
Almost no emphasis is placed on the need for vigorous daily exercise, daily exposure to the sunlight and fresh air, proper sleep at the proper time of night, elimination of sugar and sugar substitutes from the diet, elimination of processed foods, eating a large quantity of raw food the way God created it, and elimination of all food additives.
On the cover of one of their magazines they are applauding a woman volunteer at an Adventist hospital who gives away free candy to the patients a “food” that will leach much-needed vitamins and minerals from the patients’ body, and will suppress the cells of their immune system so they cannot fight disease.
“Lip Service” only for Forgiveness, Loving One’s Enemies, and truly Trusting God
No mention is made of the need to forgive those who have wronged one, to learn to love one’s enemies, to learn to be totally unselfish, and to learn how to truly trust God with everything in one’s life, yet there is great emphasis on the need to join the church. But learning to know the Lord up close and personal and learning to trust God with everything in one’s life instead of trusting in “man” (doctors) - is never even imagined, much less taught.
No Prohibition of Dairy Products and Eggs
Adventists quote Ellen White, who wrote over 100 years ago, that “some day” milk, dairy products, and eggs will have to be eliminated. But they don’t believe that day has come even though, because of factory farming, chickens are so contaminated that the government is thinking of putting a warning on every egg due to the high rate of salmonella infection in chickens.
And cows are infected with Mad Cow Disease, leukemia, and many other diseases. In addition, the slaughter of these animals is performed under filthy conditions and the meat inspectors’ hands are tied because the meat producers are allowed to “self-inspect” their own meat. What a recipe for disaster!
The time to eliminate milk, all other dairy products, and eggs from the diet came and went decades ago, yet Adventists are still endorsing the consuming of these diseased products.
Promotion of DRUGS that God Identifies as Sorceries and Witchcraft
The Adventist denomination has a widespread “Health” system that includes many hospitals and even a medical school, Loma Linda University School of Medicine. But all their hospitals and their medical school are virtually indistinguishable from any other secular hospital or medical school. All their doctors are trained in conventional “drug” medicine. They treat diseases in only two ways: by drug medications, which the Bible defines as Sorceries and Witchcraft (Revelation 18:23: God defines pharmacy drug medications - as Sorceries), or by cutting out organs or cutting off body parts.
Loma Linda University, the medical school run by the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, has recently built a School of Pharmacy (pharmakeia in the Greek), that God defines as SORCERIES DRUG medicine that harms the wonderful immune system that God has given us to Get us Well and Keep us Well.Promotion of Vaccinations Poisons that are neither safe nor effective
Vaccinations have been fraudulently promoted by the U.S. government and Organized Medicine, including SDA doctors and health facilities, as having eradicated polio, whooping cough, measles, and many other communicable diseases. But the truth is that the incidence of all three of those diseases had already been reduced by over 80% during the 35-50 years BEFORE the introduction of the specific vaccine for each of those diseases, by Public Health improvements in both nutrition and sanitation.
When the vaccines were introduced, the “slope of the curve” (of the reduction in the number of those contracting the disease) did not change, which meant statistically that the vaccinations had NO EFFECT on the continued decrease in the disease.
On the contrary, AFTER the introduction of the vaccinations, between 50% and 80% of ALL the new cases of those particular diseases were in children and adults who had already been vaccinated, showing that the vaccinations actually CAUSED the disease rather than preventing it.
In order to deceive the public about the “effectiveness” of vaccinations, organized medicine outright LIED. In the case of Polio, ALL cases of Polio that were CAUSED by the Polio vaccinations (which included 87% of ALL cases reported) were no longer called “Polio.” Instead, the name of the disease was reported as “Aseptic Meningitis.” This was done deliberately to 1) eliminate any possibility of liability, by the government or the drug companies who produced the vaccines, for the paralysis and deaths of those whose disease had been CAUSED by the vaccinations, 2) to deceive the public into believing that Polio vaccinations DID work and did NOT cause disease to insure the multi-billion dollar profits of the drug companies who produce the vaccines.
“Researchers have always known that polio strikes with its greatest intensity during the hot summer months. In 1948, Dr. Benjamin Sandler, a nutritional expert at the Oteen Veteran’s Hospital in North Carolina, detailed a relationship between polio and an excessive consumption of sugars and starches. He compiled records showing that countries with the highest per capita consumption of sugar had the greatest incidence of polio.
Dr. Sandler also observed that children consumed greater amounts of ice cream, soda pop, and artificially sweetened products in hot weather. In 1949, before the polio season began, he warned the residents of North Carolina (through the newspapers and radio) to decrease their consumption of these products. During that summer North Carolinians reduced their intake of sugar by 90 percent and polio decreased in that state in 1949 by the same amount (BEFORE the introduction of vaccinations). The North Carolina State Health Department reported 2,498 cases of polio in 1948 and 229 in 1949.
“Note: One manufacturer shipped one million LESS gallons of ice cream during the first week alone following the publication of Dr. Sandler’s anti-polio diet. Coca Cola sales were down as well. But the powerful Rockefeller Milk Trust, which sold frozen products to North Carolinians, combined forces with Coca Cola power merchants and convinced the people that Sandler’s findings were a myth and the polio figures a fluke. By the summer of 1950 sales were back to ordinary levels and polio cases returned to ‘normal’ during that year.” Neil Z. Miller, Vaccines: Are they Really Safe and Effective? p. 22,23 (This is an excellent book that should be read by every parent who does not want to harm his or her child. It can be obtained at www.thinktwice.com)
Vaccinations Maim and Kill and Don’t Work: Adverse reactions to vaccines, all vaccines, including vaccines for polio, measles, mumps, whooping cough, flu, and all others, have been reported to cause: paralysis, seizures (convulsions), severe allergic reactions causing paralysis, diabetes, hearing loss, chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, bowel disorders, blood disorders, and immune system damage and Death!
It is obvious that vaccinations don’t work for the following reasons: 1) Statistics have shown, as noted above, that the decrease in the incidence of the specific disease did not change AFTER the introduction of vaccination for that particular disease, 2) between 50% and 80% of all new cases of a specific disease diagnosed AFTER the introduction of the vaccine for that particular disease were in those who had already been vaccinated for that disease, 3) if a person who has NOT been vaccinated for a particular disease, is diagnosed with that disease, he or she develops life-long immunity for that disease. However, in the case of vaccinations, one must continue getting “booster” shots every few years for a specific disease, showing that the vaccinations really do NOT protect against the disease for which they are given, 4) ALL vaccinations can cause horrendous side effects including paralysis and death.
Transplant Program an Abomination to God
God has given us a way to get well. In Psalm 103:3, He says that,
“He forgives ALL our sins, and heals ALL our diseases.
In Deut 7:11-15, God tells us HOW He does this:
“If you obey My laws, My commandments, and My decrees, I WILL keep you FREE from EVERY disease.”
If an organ in a patient is diseased, God PROMISES to heal it but ONLY if we follow HIS ways and NOT the ways of the doctors which ALL embrace dangerous Drugs that God identifies as Sorceries and Witchcraft.
Instead, doctors have chosen to remove the diseased organ and implant a donor organ from another person. But in order for the donor organ to be “accepted” by the body and not be rejected doctors must essentially wipe out the patient’s immune system, the only system in our body that can get us well and keep us well.
Each transplant patient must take immunosuppressive drugs for the rest of his or her life. The term “immunosuppressive” means exactly what it says: those drugs suppress the immune system, the ONE system in our body that God has designed to Get us Well and Keep us Well, the one system in our body that can fight disease.
“Immunosuppressive” drugs are virtually the same drugs that are given to Cancer patients, but in that situation, they are referred to as Chemotherapy Drugs. Even though they are the same type of drugs, the doctors categorize them differently. Why? Because they don’t want transplant patients to know that they are receiving chemotherapy drugs, and they don’t want cancer patients to understand that these (chemotherapy) drugs are suppressing their immune system.
This is the reason that many transplant patients, if they live long enough, will develop cancer.
Do Adventists Live Longer Than the General Population?
Indeed, Adventists who were born 80 or more years ago, do live longer than their counterparts in the general population. But these 80+ year olds were born when most Adventists did not drink, or smoke, or drink caffeinated beverages, or eat much flesh food, or many dairy products, or much sugar.
But Adventists who were born more recently eat a large amount of sugar, drink caffeinated beverages, consume huge amounts of cheese, and some even drink alcohol and smoke. And they are stressed as much as unbelievers, even though God tells us to, “Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
And They ALL Go to Doctors
It is God who promises to,
“forgive ALL our sins and heal ALL our diseases.” Psalm 103:3
But only if we do it God’s way, and not “man’s” way the ways of the doctors.
“If you follow My laws, My commandments and My decrees . . . I will keep you free from every disease. Deut 7:11-15
God is the one who heals us not the doctors and God heals us by our following His laws, His commandments and His decrees.
Diseases do not “fall from the sky” nor do they “just happen.” We give them to ourselves slowly, one day at a time, over a long period of time, by the way we live, think, act, eat, and handle stress. In order to Get Well, we must learn how we gave ourselves disease and then we must stop doing the thins that caused our health problem, and start doing the things that will Rebuild our immune system, so our immune system can get us well as God designed it to do.
All diseases begin in the “heart.” They are “spiritual” problems long before any physical symptoms appear in the body. They are “spiritual” problems because we want to live, think, act, eat, and handle stress our way rather than God’s way. God says,
“I am the Lord who heals you.” Exodus 15:26
Breaking the First Commandment
In the First Commandment God says,
“Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:3
It is God who promises to “heal ALL our diseases” but only if we do it HIS way (Deut 7:11-15) and NOT the way of the doctors, who use drugs that the Bible defines as Sorceries and Witchcraft.
“. . . the whole world was deceived by their Sorceries (the Greek word pharmakeia pharmacy drug medications). Revelation 18:23
Developing a disease (which we do to ourselves by the way we live, think, act, eat, and handle stress) should turn us to the Lord to get our whole life straightened out. But virtually all Adventists, including the ministers and denominational leaders, turn instead to the doctors. So when an Adventist chooses doctors over God for wisdom and healing, they have placed the doctor above God, thus breaking the First Commandment.
Yet a requirement of God’s healing is to “keep His Commandments” ALL of them.
Seventh-day Adventists Have as Much Disease as the General Population
The Seventh-day Adventist churches are filled with people with life-threatening diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, so-called autoimmune diseases, and many other types of diseases. What a pity that they don’t know how to get well, because the leadership has never taught them. Why? Because the leadership doesn’t know how to be well, and they’re not willing to change everything about their life.
Even worse, they think they “know the truth of the Health Message” when in fact, they are the blind leading the blind, “And both will fall into a ditch.”
Seventh-day Adventists Don’t Even KNOW the Health Message.
In these troubled times, when the government has recently passed the “Healthcare Bill” which is a mechanism for many detrimental things for the American public, including the denial of healthcare, particularly for the elderly, Adventists could and should be at the forefront of telling the world how to regain and maintain their health by natural God-given methods without drugs!
But, unfortunately, Adventists don’t even know how to do this for themselves, so how could they ever take this message to the world! The ministers and church leaders never teach it nor do they practice it themselves.
Just Like Israel of Old
Just like Israel of old, the Adventist denomination has lost its way. It has turned away from God in many ways, including the rejection of the true and complete Health Message. And just like Israel of old, they will fall further and further into apostasy.
Only those individuals who are willing, on their own, to “search for the Lord with ALL their heart” - will be able to “find Him” and benefit from God’s wonderful promises of Healing. (Jer 29:13)
“We ought to Obey God rather than man.”
Just think about this:
1. God has promised to "heal ALL your diseases" (Psalm 103:3) but only if you do it HIS way (Deut 7:11-15) and NOT the ways of the doctors.
God has promised to “keep us free from every disease IF we follow His laws (including His health laws), His Commandments (ALL Ten of them which are much farther reaching than any church teaches, as I explain on my “Stress Success” CDs) and His Decrees” (which include, but are not limited to, learning to forgive everyone who has ever wronged you, learning to love your enemies and that includes being against ALL wars which are nothing less than Corporate Murder), learning to be Totally Unselfish, learning to let go of anger, grudge-holding, envy, jealousy, fear, and learning to trust God with everything in your life.
God has given you a 100% GUARANTEE that you will be totally well if you do it HIS way.
Do you think your doctor - or any doctor in the world - would give you a 100% guarantee that you would be completely well if you follow the doctor's way? Of course not! The doctor always makes a patient sign a consent that says the patient could be maimed for life - or could even die from what the doctor will do.
2. God's way is ridiculously inexpensive. God’s way is essentially free - except for food - and you have to buy that anyway.
The doctors' way of "treating" cancer, according to government statistics, costs between $300,000 and $500,000 per patient!
3. God's way has no Adverse Side effects. It does not make you sick - it makes you well!
The doctors' way: 1) causes your hair to fall out, 2) it causes you to vomit your insides out, 3) it destroys your immune system - the only system in your body that God has given you to get you well and keep you well, 4) it maims you with mutilating surgery, and the poisonous chemotherapy and burning radiation both cause cancer.
It’s impossible to get a sick person well by poisoning him, or burning him, or mutilating him by cutting off his body parts or cutting out his organs.
4. God has created billions of human bodies - including yours - and He knows exactly how it works, and what you need to Get Well (HIS natural Health Plan).
Your doctor has never created even one human body.
5. God is with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "He will never leave you or forsake you." Heb 13:5
Your doctor probably doesn't even make house calls.
6. God loves you - more than your parents love you, more than your husband or wife loves you, more than your children love you, more than your brothers and sisters love you, more than your friends love you.
You must listen to God’s advice not the advice of your doctor and your family and friends. Jesus said,
“If any man comes to Me, and does not hate (the advice of) his father, mother, and wife, and children, and sisters and brothers, yea and his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:26
Remember, your doctor may have a nice "bedside manner" but he or she does not love you. You're just another patient.
7. Scientists have been able to deduce that God is 100 trillion times smarter than any human being - including your doctor and including everyone in your family.
8. ALL diseases including cancer begin in the “heart.” They are “spiritual” problems long before any physical symptoms appear in the body. They are “spiritual” problems because we want to live, think, act, eat, and handle stress our way, rather than God’s way.
Diseases including Cancer do not “fall from the sky” nor do they “just happen.” We give them to ourselves slowly, one day at a time, over a long period of time, by the way we live, think, act, eat, and handle stress.
It is only God who can change the heart and give us the desire, the commitment, the determination, the tenacity, and the self-control to do what we need to do to get well.
Your doctor has no idea what is in your heart and has no ability to “go there.” That’s why your doctor cannot get you well. Everything your doctor is taught to do to you will harm your body.
9. The Bible says, "We ought to obey GOD - rather than "man" (which includes doctors and family and friends). Acts 5:29
So please tell me: Why YOU have chosen to OBEY - and put your TRUST in - your doctor and your family - RATHER than trusting God?
Only when you fully trust God - and put yourself totally in HIS hands - will you have any peace, and be able to get completely well!
Why are you hanging on to your doctor and his ways when it is GOD who promises to heal you by you following God’s Health Plan with 100% in order to reverse your disease.
Answer: Because you don’t trust God!
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6
“Common Sense” tells you to go to the doctor. But common sense and faith are as different from each other as the natural life is from the spiritual life, and as different from each other as impulsiveness is from inspiration. Nothing that Jesus Christ ever said was “common sense.”
When you watch my DVD, "Cancer Doesn't Scare Me Anymore" you can see that doctors don’t know anything about getting people well from cancer - or any other disease for that matter.
You're going to have to step out in faith and learn to KNOW God, and learn to trust God, and learn to obey God - or you will be suffering from anxiety ALL the time.
Confusion is caused by not obeying all that you already know or have the ability to learn. When you finally decide to obey God and His ways then your confusion will end.
But if you are confused or wishy-washiness with God - you have clearly not committed yourself completely to the Lord.
And how much time are you spending, every day, in Bible study and prayer.
Have you read all God’s healing promises, and my article “Are Doctors a Gift from God?” on my website at www.drday.com
And are you studying the "Spiritual Truth" portion of my website at www.goodnewsaboutgod.com ?
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God who giveth to all men liberally without reproach; and it shall be given him.
"But let him ask in FAITH - NEVER DOUBTING - for he that doubteth (wavereth) it like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed.
"For let not that man think that he shall receive ANYTHING of the Lord.
"A double-minded man is unstable in ALL his ways." James 1:5-8
When Jesus was on earth, the one thing that everyone had to exhibit in order to be healed - was faith - the belief and trust that God would do what He had already promised to do - heal ALL our diseases IF we follow HIS ways and only His ways!!
But you have to be totally committed to God's plan - not standing spread-eagle with one foot in God's camp and one foot in the doctors' camp - which is nothing less than the camp of the Adversary.
Jesus says, "He that is not (totally) with Me - is against Me." Matt 12:30
Sooner or later, everyone comes to a crossroad in his or her life, when he or she must make a major decision: Will I trust God or will I trust “man”? (the doctor and family and friends).
Will you choose God and His ways? Or will you choose the doctor and his or her ways?
Only you can make that choice!
