In 1889, the former Seventh-day Adventist minister of some 28 years, Mr. D.M. Canright, came out with his "Seventh-day Adventism Renounced." As a Baptist minister, he set forth in his book to disprove such Adventist doctrines as God's perpetual Moral Law of Ten Commandments, including the 4th commandment to keep holy the seventh-day Sabbath, the distinction of two laws; the Moral and the Ceremonial, the unconscious state of mankind at death, Ellen G. White and her gift of prophecy, the Investigative Judgement, the Cleansing of the Sanctuary, etc. But what's so revealing about this critique of "Seventh-day Adventism Renounced" is Mr. Canright's own earlier works as an Adventist minister, even as late as 3 years prior to his total switch in thinking, like his "The Two Laws." Earlier works that are cleverly used by Mr. Branson to make Mr. Canright one of the best rebuttals to his later doctrinal criticisms of his former denomination.

W.H. Branson's "In Defense of the Faith" even quotes from mainstream fundamentalist church denominational leaders and scholars concerning the Moral Law of God, as still binding upon all of mankind. All ten of those moral commands. John Wesley, John Calvin, Dwight L. Moody, Charles H. Spurgeon, Adam Clarke, Albert Barnes and other sources are all quoted here in the very first chapter(What Did Mr. Canright Renounce?) of Mr. Branson's brilliant work, stating their firm convictions in support of the continuation of God's moral law of ten commandments through all ages. Totally contradicting what Mr. Canright supposedly renounced. Let's quote Mr. Canright, then a few fundamentalist Christians for comparison, as found in Mr. Branson's book;

D.M Canright: "Now under Christ, we are delivered from the law; that law is dead." Seventh-day Adventism Renounced, p.

This book exposes Canright own words by quoting them as a witness against himself, some of Canright's statement are only a few years just before he left the SDA church for good. It reveals that Canright was either ignorant of his past beliefs and understanding of those beliefs or purposely contradicting himself to bring public reproach to God's church.

Seventh Day Adventism (and Adventism, generally) is a Christian sect, rather than a non-Christian cult, but its errors are more than serious enough.

Someone concerned about this sect should look at the literature and WWW sites of MacGregor Ministries and its M&M Outreach. Lori MacGregor and her helpers include many who have left Seventh Day Adventism to become genuinely Evangelical Christians. Let others who have trodden the pathways of Adventism help you with their understandings.

Do not settle for investigating what only one point of view, "pro" or "con" or mine, has to say about Adventism (or any other crucial matter regarding Christianity), either! If you are serious about the Holy Christian Faith, you will take the time to investigate it, and the various manifestations of Christianity, thoroughly.

Read widely and read diversely, and, of course, prayerfully!
