This is not a question as such but I'm hoping you can offer some advice . I have been blessed by your biblically based responses to questions concerning SDA doctrine. I have been in this faith for over 30 years but after reading your articles I have realized admittedly that I am now questioning my beliefs. I see great sense in your responses but it's been three years and I have not been able to move to another congregation. I tried attending church on Sunday but I feel grossly uncomfortable even though I no longer trust the SDA position. I'm afraid that I may displease God by choosing another denomination. I'm confused about why the church would lie to it's people about Sabbath keeping and the role of Ellen White. It's a very hard pill to swallow and I've found myself in deep bouts of depression because I don't know if moving away is what God would have me do. I've prayed, waited even ignored, but that deep feeling that I'm doing something wrong won't go away. I admit that I am seeing the truth on your end but my heart and what I'm now learning is at loggerheads. What must I do?
Dear Sister Maria:
Congratulations on realizing that the truth does not reside in SDAism. This is not an easy thing to do for one who was inside the Church for 30 years. It's hard for anyone to accept the truth when it conflicts with their beliefs. I have great admiration for you. You are very courageous to see the truth and follow it where ever it leads. Many have ignored the truth in order to continue in the comfortable make-believe world of SDAism. There is an expert on this site who I highly recommend. She is a former SDA of 50 plus years. Her name is Patricia Allen please write to her for advice. I'm sure she can offer you great first-hand help in your struggles to break free of SDAism. She also has a free ebook, "Out of the House of Bondage" available @ http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/4845556/outofbondageamendfinal-pdf-1-3-meg?da=y
Also I know of three websites that may be of interest to you.
I will pray for you. May God bless you in your study. Please let me know if I can be of further help.
