Seventh Day Adventist: Closet Catholic?

I can't imagine why an adventist believer sent me the following email trying to convince me about the evils of Catholicism.


Frankly, I don't believe the Bible and their interpretations of it any more than they don't believe the Pope.


In fact, if you want to believe the Bible...


GOD HAD TO TAKE A BREATHER


The Bible states:


In six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
- Exodus 31:17


According to learned editors of a Bible published in 1774, the true meaning of the Hebrew is, "on the seventh day He rested, and fetched his breath." So, God is depicted as panting after over-exerting Himself?


Isn't it a bit of an insult to depict an infinite Being getting worn out from six day's work?


Or to depict a God who works for only six days then spends the next 6,000 years on holiday? (Then again, for all anyone really knows, God may have spent the first five days of creation just futzing around, then pulled an all-nighter.)

NASAL ADDICTIONS OF THE GODS
The ancients routinely gathered together the finest of their flock and the finest of their crops, and set them aflame so that the smoke would rise to heaven and appease a particular god or gain their blessed attention. According to The Epic of Gilgamesh (an ancient Babylonian tale that featured the story of a worldwide flood), the gods had been denied their sacrifices during the time the world was flooded, so they all gathered round eagerly to get a whiff of the first animals sacrificed after the flood. A similar scene appears at the end of the flood tale in the Hebrew Bible. Noah holds a huge barbecue after leaving the ark, sacrificing "two of every clean animal" to the Lord. The Bible author added, ".and the Lord smelled the soothing aroma." (Gen. 8:21 -- a similar phrase is found elsewhere in the Bible as well, see Ex. 29:18; Lev. 1:17, 3:5; Num. 15:13,24; 29:28). "Smelled the soothing aroma?" What a pretty piece of anthropomorphism to attribute to God. As if the creator of the universe needed to be "soothed" by the "aroma" of barbecued bison.


Question: Why did Noah have to murder those animals? Didn't the Lord get his fill of "smelling the soothing aromas" of countless critters He sacrificed to Himself via the Flood? If you reply, "It's because charbroiled critters, not drowned ones, have the 'smell' whose 'aroma' is 'soothing,'" then I've got another question. What about Jesus' death? He wasn't charbroiled. (Please don't tell me after Jesus died he got a little singed in hell just so God could once again "smell the soothing aroma.")


Those Bible verses about God "smelling the soothing aroma" do make ya wonder though, whether God still lusts after the scent of burnt animals. Today, if He did, He'd probably have to settle for a barstool at a steak house with Zeus, Odin, Marduk and Baal by His side, chatting about the good old days, all sneaking a whiff of that old "soothing" stuff.


Course, maybe God's addiction just kept getting worse, from flaming farm animals to His own son, and now He's probably addicted to "smelling the soothing aroma" of whole planets filled with living creatures exploding into cosmic fireballs. Wait, isn't that mentioned in. the Book of Revelation? Quick, somebody call the Pope to arrange an intervention, we gotta get God into rehab! And tell Outback to double my order.

ADVENTIST SENVENTH DAY DOCTRINE


GOD SAID: "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shalllabor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter,


nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle,nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it."
(Exodous 20:8-11)


SABBATH =GOD`S HOLY DAY (SATURDAY 7TH DAY) SUNDAY= DAY OF THE SUN (1ST DAY) JESUS IS COMMING SOON , PREPARE
