The history of the LDS church has typically been separated into three distinctive periods.

1. “Early History” under the leadership of Joseph Smith, Jr.
2. “Pioneering era” under the leadership of Brigham Young.
3. “Modern Era” beginning around the turn of the 20th century as polygamy was abandoned.

In this teaching we look briefly at each of these three periods before moving on to look at the life of its founder Joseph Smith, Jr.  What you will discover in this teaching will shock you!

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.

Are Christians required to keep the Sabbath, are Christians free to eat what they please?  Does what we eat affect our spirituality?  In this teaching we shall be focusing our attention on the emphasis that the Adventist church places on the observance of the Sabbath along with its heavy emphasis on the dietary laws which SDA’s links to sanctification.

The SDA proposition that the Law of Moses as represented by the Decalogue (Ten Commandments) is still binding and in force upon those professing faith in Jesus and is a necessary requisite for salvation is not new to our era.  The Church in the first century was faced with exactly the same proposition!  Historically, the very first converts to Christianity were all Jewish; the very first church as recorded in the book of Acts consisted purely of Jewish believers who had come to faith in the Messiah Yeshua.  However in accordance with the plan of God and the Old Testament prophecies, the door of salvation was opened to the Gentile nations.  When Gentiles began being converted in vast numbers and began coming into the Church, there were those Jews, the Judaizers, zealous for the Law of Moses who sought to place them under the law as a requisite for salvation. 

Are Seventh-day Adventists the modern day Judaizers?  Does salvation come by grace through faith or by the keeping of the law?  Can a professing Christian hold to both and be saved?  We explore these questions and more in this teaching!

SDA‘s readily identify themselves as the remnant church who have been called out to keep the commandments of God.  By commandments, they mean the Decalogue or the Ten Commandments.  One cannot overemphasise the place that the SDA church places upon the Ten Commandments.  They are at the very heart and centre of the organisation!!  It has well been said that SDA’s are New Testament believers in profession but Old Testament in practise.  

In this teaching we begin to explore and answer the question, 'as New Testament believers are we required to keep the Ten Commandments?'

Ellen G. White had over 2000 visions during her lifetime and the content of those visions resulted in over 100,000 pages of writings which the SDA’s today consider to be inspired by the Holy Spirit and “…a continuing and authoritative source of truth…” (Fundamental Beliefs, Point 18).  Ellen White herself claimed that her visions and writings were not merely expressions of her own ideas, but rather had their source as coming from God.

In this teaching, we examine under a spotlight, the prophecies of Mrs White to see if she passes the test of a true Biblical prophet.  We will also examine the claim that Mrs White plagiarised a great amount of her written material that she claimed to have received directly from God!
