Revelation for the 21st Century, part 2
- Jan 21—Revelation’s Remnant and the World Religions.
The most challenging doctrines of the SDA Church for evangelists have been the Sabbath, the state of the dead, and tithing, the so-called “testing truths.” These have become less challenging over the last twenty years or so. The most challenging doctrine for Millennials and beyond may be the remnant. It strikes the new generation as arrogant and self-serving. This has caused church leadership to take a fresh look at the biblical evidence. I report on recent research and suggest how the remnant, biblically and historically understood, could be the most relevant of all Adventist doctrines today.

About our class:
- The AT Sabbath Seminar is intended to be a courteous forum. We discuss and ask questions politely. We don’t accuse, get angry, put people down, or judge the state of their salvation.
- Stick to the topic in both comments and chat discussion.
- Make your comments and questions short—don’t dominate.
- Keep your microphones muted unless you are called upon to make your comment or ask your question.
- Indicate your interest in speaking by raising your electronic hand—under the “reactions” button.
- Please use your name when you sign in! Not your phone number, not your initials. This will help us differentiate you from unwelcome guests who want to disrupt us. You can set your name after signing on by clicking on the 3 dots next to your picture, which drops down a menu.
We look forward to getting acquainted with you!
