Re: Something more to think about
A tragedy caused by religion
Whatever was going through the heads of those morons, it was not Seventh-day Adventism. I was raised an SDA, and they emphatically do not discourage seeking medical care. They run a medical school at Loma Linda, FFS.

Re: Something more to think about
Seventh Day Adventism is not Christianity, it's a cult.
No, it is a denomination.
Not that you care about the truth, but words do have generally accepted meanings for most of us. Other than the colloquial fundagelical definition ("anyone whose theology I don't like") the SDA church fits none of the criteria for being a cult. You could google the definitions of these words, but really, don't bother. Reality has proven incapable of changing your mind and I doubt this would be an exception.

Re: Something more to think about
...the church itself is a cult because it is founded on the aberrant teachings of Ellen White who is regarded as a prophet.
Faith, you're simply not being honest here. It is not necessary to take a position on any aspect of theology to define the words "church", "denomination", "sect", or "cult". As AZP has so properly pointed out, using your criteria, people who take a contrary position to yours could easily define all of Christianity as a cult on that basis.
Please desist from making up meanings for words just to serve your own biases.

Re: There are Christians who disagree with Faith
...that offend the conscience...
By which you mean your conscience, of course.
