Another Amazing Fact

Exposing Adventism - What was the value of the work of Christ upon the cross?

Seventh-day Adventism teaches that:

"Those only who through faith in Christ obey all of God's commandments will reach the condition of sinlessness in which Adam lived before his transgression" (Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, vol. 6, p. 1118)

"At this time in the history of the world, we should have but one object in view--to gain eternal life. Every other desire should be subordinate to this. The work of regeneration must go on in every soul until perfection of character is reached; for nothing short of this will meet the mind of God." (Manuscript 119, 1899, p. 1;"Words to Parents," August 21, 1899; 5MR 338.2)

"Christ died to make it possible for you to cease to sin, and sin is the transgression of the law" (Review and Herald, vol. 71, No. 35, p. 1, August 28, 1894.)

Those who accept the Saviour, however sincere their conversion, should never be taught to say or to feel that they are saved. This is misleading. (Christ Object Lessons, page 155)

As long as man is full of weakness–for of himself he cannot save his soul–he should never dare to say, "I am saved." (Selected Messages, vol 1, page 314)

If all we are doing is moving toward an ultimate goal of perfection, then what was the value of the work of Christ upon the cross? Do we really need salvation? Are we not moving steadily toward a goal which will ultimately be reached, whether Christ died or not? What is the purpose, therefore, of his redeeming grace?
