Easy answer: Nope.
The reason there are only 25,000,000 million Adventists in the world rather than six or seven billion is due to that fact that the sect is “inspired” by things most people find unattractive rather than the vital and vibrant living words of god, i. e., The Holy Spirit.
In these “end times” when a video can go viral In a matter of minutes, SAD-ism-despite all of its strident scare tactics-isn’t impressive or appealing to more than about one in one hundred million people as it only rings “true” with under- or over-educated narcissists, self righteous progressives or conservatives, the mentally inert, would-be masochists or martyrs and the hopelessly gullible.
In other words, I find SAD-ism’s lack of traction among the general population encouraging as it means that the overwhelming majority of people in the world aren’t buying into the SDA/EGW con game.
And okay, any potential audience for this comment probably isn’t inside the denomination. Anyone who stays in the church for more than twenty or thirty minutes, to say nothing of continuing to support the cult with offerings of time and tithes for years on end, most likely isn’t going to listen to any other contrarian messages, anyway. Instead, they’ve already demonstrated a pit bull-like, perhaps even unpardonable preference for stale literary cliches, rehashed sermonizing and outdated messages from long dead, self proclaimed “prophets” over nonverbal and immediate interaction with god’s original evidence of his existence, The Book of Nature.
But then again, it took 25 years for the light to penetrate Adventism’s darkness and (gradually) get through to me, so rather than “cancel”, I hit “Reply”….
(Insert “fingers crossed” and “red-faced” emojis….)
