Yes but it’s reframed from a guilt/innocence framework to a oneness/separation framework.
That’s tough to explain without reproducing the study but the bottom line is secular thinkers don’t understand guilt/innocence frameworks because they don’t inhabit a religious world and they don’t generally believe in moral absolutes. So guilt/innocence explanations not the gospel go over their heads.
Oneness and separation is a theme that undergirds the social justice pursuit of a planetary village and is a much better framework for explaining the gospel to secular Millennials etc.

You may not believe the above requirements needed for membership. But they are part of our fundamental beliefs, claimed to be based on Bible. No one is baptised into our church who does not accept EGW as the prophet of the remnant Church.
