John We don't have to reject the words of Ellen G. White to be saved.
We must recognize they are not the Bible and that her words must be judged by the Bible. Some fail to do this. But she teaches that we are to love GOD and love others. That we are accept Jesus Christ as our only Savior.
So you are misinformed.

aservant [of whom, I wonder] :
"SDA disbelieve what God says as the Author of the Bible. Thus, they are not Christians since they are not followers of Christ, but have faith in their own works. They are followers of Ellen G. White, whose prophetic utterings are in opposition to what God has said."
Your utterings are in opposition to the truth. We SDA's are true Protestants and strict followers of the Bible only. EGW taught that the Bible is to be our ONLY rule of faith. You have NO evidence of her teachings being in opposition to the Bible.
God said in Exo 20:8 "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy." Do you? Or do you substitute a man-made counterfeit in opposition to the Bible?

You are misinformed. As a Seventh day Adventist I follow the Bible. When I discuss here and all the other places I go. I simply post what the Bible says. There is much misinformation spread about us. Please check for the truth.
To the writer of the Blog. Paul is saying to marry another Believer in Jesus Christ.
The problem for an SDA is that they would not want to keep Sabbath or follow our understanding of a healthy diet. Which would make life very difficult.

Aservant, Adventists are multifaceted not monolithic.
There are Evangelical Adventists who reject EGW's Writing.

//But I say it is good not to marry as marriage is a thing of regret for most who do it.--mike4879 on 8/24/16
Saint Paul and I agree
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/25/16|
Correction: Paul did not say to be "equally yoked" with unbelievers. Paul said to not be "UNEQUALLY YOKED with unbelievers." Unfortunately, Christians are unequally yoked with fellow Christians now days as Christians are little Christian. Yet, it is not right for a believer to marry an atheist or Buddhist or Muslim or Hindu. That is being UNEQUALLY YOKED. But I say it is good not to marry as marriage is a thing of regret for most who do it.

There is only one good reason for marrying anyone (or abstaining from marriage)--to please God.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

"what did he exactly mean?" Exactly what he said. The believer is one who adheres to, relies on, and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior. The unbeliever is one who doesn't, to the point of doubting, even denying His existence. The two joining would be unwise because their value system and mindset would be would be influenced by opposing sources.
"I am a seventh day Adventist was he saying I should only get married to an Adventist" No. He's saying you should only marry someone willing to follow Christ. One who follows Christ would be willing to both understand and respect another's religion, as in method of worship, without being threaten by it or feeling the need to compromise their own.

SDA disbelieve what God says as the Author of the Bible. Thus, they are not Christians since they are not followers of Christ, but have faith in their own works. They are followers of Ellen G. White, whose prophetic utterings are in opposition to what God has said.
Paul was speaking to followers of the Father of Jesus, not pagans or disbelievers of the coming Messiah. Nothing SDA folks are doing honors the Father. He must be worshiped in Spirit (which SDA do not have), and Truth (which SDA do not have), though God has a Sovereign right to impart his Spirit and Truth to whom He will, and may make an exception as He will.
Marry who you will. You can't have the required faith in God if you follow leaders who say He is lying.

Yes Monk Brendan, unusual circumstances DO work for some people and I'm pleased to hear that it works for your brother but my answer was directed at pee4484 and was purely in response to his question. However, he might be helped by your response to mine. These discussions do tend to take on a life of their own.

It's as Leon said: It would be a bad idea to spend the rest of your life with someone who doesn't share your core beliefs. The important question then becomes, just which of your beliefs are core beliefs? What is your most important belief? Is it Jesus and who he was and what he did, or is it what day on the calendar you go to church?

Rita H. said, "Why might you wish to each worship God in different places on different days of the week?"
Rita, my brother does that very thing. He goes to the anticipated Mass on Saturday afternoon, and then he go with her to her church on Sunday.
They've been together for 40 years, so I think the arrangement works.
---Monk_Brendan on 8/17/16|
For you, as an Adventist, I think that it would be foolish to even contemplate marrying a person who does not believe the same as you regarding the Sabbath. There are enough problems in marriages without adding more that would be connected with beliefs. If you truly believe that your way is correct you should choose a life partner with the same beliefs as yours and bring up any children you might have in the same way.
Why might you wish to each worship God in different places on different days of the week?
---Rita_H on 8/16/16|
Pee: You don't want to be married to someone who doesn't share your same core beliefs & will be pulling in a direction against you. Whoever you marry should be like-minded with you on key Bible principles. It's that simple.
