THE ACHILLES' HEEL OF SEVENTH-DAY
From: Exposing Seventh-day Adventism
by Russell Earl Kelly
The Investigative Judgment Doctrine
is the cultic doctrine of Seventh-day Adventism which they cannot explain. Yet it is the only reason for their existence.
The Investigative Judgment (from their false explanation of Daniel 8:14) is built on the SDA presupposition
that their interpretation of Daniel 8:10-12 is correct.
for them is that EGW did not discuss 8:10-13 and SDA theologians cannot connect their own explanation of 8:10-12
with the question of 8:13 and their answer in 8:14.
Do you want to confuse the SDA Babylon? It is easy and will send them running
First, ask them to explain 8:10-12. They
will proudly tell you about the little horn's opposition to Christ in AD 31, the little horn's destruction of
paganism several centuries later, the little horn's imposition of the confessional during the Middle Ages
and the little horn's supremacy for 1260 years ending in 1798. The WHO was pagan and papal Rome and the HOW was armies
Second, ask them to tell you which of the events in the
vision mentioned in 8:10-12 actually "ended" in 1844 according to their date from 8:14.
8:13 How long shall be
the vision? How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled? When will the vision end?
None of their "answers" answer the question asked in 8:13 because all of their answers are wrong!
The little horn did not "stop" persecuting Christ or His saints in 1844; the little horn did not "stop"
destroying paganism in 1844; the little horn did not expose the errors of the confessional in 1844 (the Protestant Reformation
claims this in the 16th century) and the events of 1798 did not occur in 1844.
Worse yet, SDAs teach that their Investigative Judgment only BEGAN in 1844 and, actually, the
little horn had absolutely nothing to do with defiling the heavenly sanctuary because (now they say) it was defiled by the
confessed and forgiven sins of the saints! So why all the talk about the little horn? Why not blame this all on Jesus (the
WHO) for defiling the heavenly sanctuary with His own blood which carries the sins of the saints (the HOW)?
Now that is really deep -- or just ultra confusing. But wait, if SDAs are correct, then the sins of saints have
been defiling the heavenly sanctuary since Adam and will continue to defile it until shortly before Jesus returns
-- neither and 1844 event.
no part of the vision of 8:10-12 "ended" in 1844 and the question of 8:13 is still unanswered in SDA theology.
