The LDS church has twice as many members as the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The official membership of the LDS church (as of November 2013) is 15 million. These 15 million members meet in over 29 thousand congregations worldwide. The LDS church has 80,000 active missionaries on every mission field of the world. It boasts 141 Temples worldwide with a further 15 under construction and 14 more that have been announced. It receives an estimated $7 billion a year in tithes and sits on an estimated $35 billion of real-estate.
In this teaching we take a quick whistle stop tour through the many teachings and beliefs of Mormonism including a look at its Temples and ritual, along with its governmental structure.

There were a number of groups that sprang out of the Millerite movement in the mid 1800's including the SDA’s, the Christadelphians and the JW's. Since all three share a common root they also share common doctrines. Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh-day Adventists and the Christadelphians all have in common the heretical doctrine of mortalism (the mortality of the soul) out of which flows the false doctrines of Soul Sleep and Annihilation. In this final teaching on Seventh-day Adventists we examine these doctrines including the doctrine of baptismal regeneration.
We ask the question; is Adventism a cult or has it now reformed so as to place itself under the umbrella of orthodox and historic Christianity?

It has well been said that the only really distinctive and unique doctrine of the SDA church is the doctrine of the heavenly sanctuary out of which proceeds the doctrine of the Investigative Judgment. This teaching is the very pillar and foundation of the SDA church. What is this peculiar doctrine that many with Adventism today want to distance themselves from? Is such a doctrine compatible with Biblical Christianity? We shall seek to address this head on in this teaching.
