The Seventh Day Remnant
If we are
to be associated with the name SDR (Seventh Day Remnant), it is important to tell people
that the SDR name/denomination is not THE church of Christ, but, a
group who’s ideals strive to abide, as close as possible by the power of
His Holy Spirit,
by the ONLY Truth in the universe……….The Holy Bible (KJV), the
Word of God.
Calling ourselves SDR is appropriate, I think, but that’s just a label we use to identify
what and who we are. Telling people that SDR, with it’s already written
beliefs, is the only true church is arrogant and sets us up for corruption
already…………just as bad as the Papacy and RCC telling people that they are the
only true church. The point is that there are most likely other groups here
and around the world who feel the same way, or go by the same doctrine as we
do, or the SDR does, but what if they never find the SDR or hear about us or
join us? It is only arrogance to assume that the SDR or any denomination is the only way to
salvation. Most Bible believers, I hope, know very well that
is the only way to salvation and that
His Word, The Holy Bible, KJV, is the
Truth, but we know what the Papacy and RCC arrogance got them and where they are
I’m not saying that calling ourselves SDR, or another appropriate label, is bad……..it’s a wonderful thing and
looks very much like the SDR name/denomination and beliefs go perfectly with
hour movement, etc.). I think we can more safely say that calling
ourselves, or our group, or the SDR, as being a part of the Remnant movement is
more in line with scripture and a better generic term, don’t you? And that the
Remnant movement comprise of people who make up God’s true church, which
comprise of people in denominations, churches, or elsewhere all over the World

I was raised
protestant and I've never been involved in the Catholic church and never wish
to be, although, I've had some Catholic friends and acquaintances. By just
being around them, but actually reading the Holy Bible for myself, I've always
been very leery of Catholicism because of the nature of their dependence on
temporal worship and relying on traditions and the physical use of items,
icons, graven images, statues and the like to satisfy their carnal desires.
What I mean by temporal is....of or relating to the material world; worldly.
This temporal dependence keeps them from attaining a True spiritual uplifting
and relationship with Jesus Christ
by His Holy Spirit,
which is exactly what Satan is wanting. It's easy for me to see because I've
never been in the Catholic church and am not blinded by their traditions, pomp
and ceremony. I hope and pray that we can get to these people and bring the
Truth to them.
Protestantism, Ideas and Comments
protestant churches paying homage to the papacy by Sunday
observance...............I'd like to mention that I was once like one of them
also...........but I always new somehow that Sunday rest and worship was
After I accepted Jesus and was baptized, the Holy Spirit
moved me and convicted me more and more each day to keep the True seventh-day
Sunday rest and worship because of Jesus' resurrection has no
Biblical authority and I knew that not sticking to scripture can only make me
a target for Satan and his demons because by keeping the commandments of men
rather than the Word of God only gives you a very superficial faith in the
Accepting the true teaching in the Bible and keeping the True
seventh-day Sabbath, actually opens many more doors in the Bible to give you a
firm faith that cannot be loosed. The blessing that the Lord has given me is
faith, growing deep roots and zeal for knowledge, wisdom and understanding of
All this becomes evident more and more when we get deeper
into the study of the Bible other than man's traditions because it is all
intertwined within scripture.
It's so hard to teach
people the real Truth in the Bible because most of the protestant world keep
Sunday Sabbath under the
guise of celebrating the
resurrection of Christ.......a tradition of man.........like the RCC keeping
their traditions ............. and most are under the false assumption that
the 10 Commandments, spoken by God and
written by God's own hand in stone, are not valid any more because of
the "saved under Grace" issue. There is so much in the World that is against
us getting the truth accross.........Satan has messed things up pretty
bad........but God WILL prevail.
Why is there evil in this world?
This question has been used for centuries to confuse new and young Christians
and to influence people to disregard and trodden under foot
God and His Word. I think this is one of Satan's most useful ploys to
destroy God's creation.
The article below gives a perfect example of how to
teach people why evil exists in this world.
This story is about a
student who was born March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany.
It takes place in 1905 while the
student is working on his Doctorate. It is a very Interesting story...
What do you think?
Does evil exist?
The University of Zurich professor challenged
his students with "Did God create everything that exists?"
A student bravely replied "yes, he did!
"God created everything”? the professor asked.
"Yes! sir", the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created evil. Since
evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are,
then God is evil".
The student became quiet before such an answer.
Another student said, "Can I ask you a question
"Of course", replied the professor.
The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?"
“Certainly," said the Professor.
The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws
of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Everybody
or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy,and heat is
what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (- 460
degrees F) is the total absence of heat; all matter becomes inert and incapable
of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have created this word
to describe how we feel if we have no heat."
The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"
The professor responded, "Obviously".
The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist
either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not
darkness. In fact we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many
colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure
darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness and
illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the
amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to
describe what happens when there is no light present."
Finally the young man asked the professor,
"Sir, does evil exist?"
Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of
course as I have already said, we see it every day. It is in the daily example
of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence
everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."
To this the student replied, "Evil does not
exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. "Evil is simply the
absence of God." It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created
to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is not like faith,
or love that exist just as does light and heat. Evil is the result of what
happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the
cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is
The professor sat down.
Later in the same year (1905) this same student
showed how mass and energy were equivalent, used
Planck's quantum hypothesis to describe the
electromagnetic radiation of light, demonstrated photoelectric effect, and
submitted his first paper on special relativity.
He received the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his
work on the photoelectric effect.
description of evil remains a powerful insight to theologians of many faiths
throughout the world.
One week before his death (1955) he signed his
last letter. It was a letter to
Bertrand Russell in which he agreed that
his name should go on a manifesto urging all nations to give up nuclear weapons.
It is fitting that one of his last acts was to argue, as he had done all his
life, for international peace.
