Exposing Adventism - Adventism calls non-Adventist churches "harlots"

Ellen White blasts all non-Adventist churches by saying,

"Babylon is said to be "the mother of harlots." By her daughters must be symbolized churches that cling to her doctrines and traditions, and follow her example of sacrificing the truth and the approval of God, in order to form an unlawful alliance with the world. The message of Revelation 14 announcing the fall of Babylon, must apply to religious bodies that were once pure and have become corrupt. Since this message follows the warning of the Judgment, it must be given in the last days, therefore it cannot refer to the Romish Church, for that church has been in a fallen condition for many centuries. Furthermore, in the eighteenth chapter of the Revelation, in a message which is yet future, the people of God are called upon to come out of Babylon. According to this scripture, many of God's people must still be in Babylon. And in what religious bodies are the greater part of the followers of Christ now to be found? Without doubt, in the various churches professing the Protestant faith. At the time of their rise, these churches took a noble stand for God and the truth, and his blessing was with them. Even the unbelieving world was constrained to acknowledge the beneficent results that followed an acceptance of the principles of the gospel. In the words of the prophet to Israel, "Thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty; for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God." But they fell by the same desire which was the curse and ruin of Israel, —the desire of imitating the practices and courting the friendship of the ungodly. "Thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown."

Many of the Protestant churches are following Rome's example of iniquitous connection with "the kings of the earth;" the State churches, by their relation to secular governments, and other denominations by seeking the favor of the world. And the term Babylon—confusion—may be appropriately applied to these bodies, all professing to derive their doctrines from the Bible, yet divided into almost innumerable sects, with widely conflicting creeds and theories. (Great Controversy, 1888, pp. 382-383)

Adventism is a very exclusive religious community that teaches even small children that it includes the only true followers of Jesus Christ. The Adventist definition of the remnant is arrogant. Adventism's traditional position regarding the remnant is spiritually arrogant and highly cultic. When you boil it all down, the bottom line is that Seventh-day Adventists believe they have the remnant message for the last days. They're calling all other Christians to 'leave Babylon and join Adventism, God's true church.'

In its traditional belief on the remnant, they've positioned themselves as the Noah's ark of the end times. Many Adventist theologians don't believe this, yet it remains part of Adventist heritage. Unfortunately many Adventists still hold to this position.

I believe Scripture reveals this teaching is sin against the rest of the Body of Christ. It isn't biblical. Adventists can say that they are the remnant, but they can't say for sure that they're saved. The remnant will never call themselves 'remnant.' God gives that name from his vantage point. Adventists sin against the Body of Christ by claiming to be the remnant.
