The Adventist Church was once a faithful and true Church of God, but that is the past. She has departed like ancient Israel with all their idolatry and corruptible treasures that are visibly found standing in her midst. The fingerprint of Roman Catholicism is all over the SDA Church today with such visible evidence, which you can find in the below. How true it is when the past president from the SDA Church says, “…there is another universal and truly catholic organization, the Seventh-day Adventist Church.” Adventist Review, March 5, 1981, p 3.

Take note: Those professed Churches today that are holding up the sign that they are the true Church of God, but yet clinging to visible evidence that they are dancing with paganism, they are not the true Church of God. For any Church to be claiming themselves the true Church, but yet yoking up with Babylon (Roman Catholicism) it is proof they have listened unto vain deceit and rudiments of the world that is not after Christ, but Baal.
Colossians 2:8 – Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
