    I know a seventh day adventist and was wondering if anyone knows one or knows what they are about?

    Thanks.

    As with any group claiming they are under the label of "Christian", it is easier to compare than give an entire lengthy synopsis of their belief system.

    Do you have one you already know about to compare or contrast to?

    Well I don't want to compare the person per se, only if you do happen to know one, if they are all around a nice person. I know, don't personalize a church on one person. However, just curious.

    As to a synopsis, no I did not want that else I would do some lengthy research. Sometimes I find that research is written by a non-objective source, whereas, a personal opinion by someone, though subjective, will at least be a more personal opinion than something someone wrote on the net. For example, I could read 100 critics on a particular movie, but will still ask my friend, assuming he saw it already, whether I should see it too.

    Nice people are found everywhere. The religion is irrelevant.

    I was talking about comparing one belief system to another. -Not one person to another. If you had some frame of reference it makes it easier.

    Then what the heck do you want to know?

    Seeing as how you're on the internet, might I suggest a google search?

    Scheeze, I know I can do the research, just wanted to know if anyone on this forum had an opinion or knew someone. Did not realize that was such a hard thing to ask for. Seems easy when you guys give opinions on political stuff. Of course I could do a google search, but then what the heck is the point of this forum.

    I was under this impression that the religious forum was founded for the sole reason of discussing things about religion. If you don't have opinion on the topic I posted, then don't reply.

    I know a seventh-day and he's a total lunatic.
    There, hope that helps.:rolleyes: :p:

    I think the point is that trying to understand a religion by asking people if they know a "nice" person of that faith is silly.

    You are a pathetic person, really. A simple question. If you think I am trying to understand a religion by asking if one person is nice, you are stupid or ignorant, because I said, I do not base my opinion of a church on one person. READ! I don't care if the person is nice, just a reference as to what I was asking.

    So you know one that is a lunatic. Well at least you answered my question. You know, for someone who has claimed that where you live the people (yourself included), judge people not on religion, race, etc.. then why have you so judged this person? Or are you just being a jerk?

    You have done nothing constructive here.

    First you ask an ambiguous question about a religion.
    Then you claim to want to know about the religion by asking if we know "NICE" people of that faith.
    Then you say you don't want a description of their beliefs, but want information.
    Then you say you don't want to base an opinion of a church on a person.

    You then insult the very people who do not understand what the heck you are asking for.

    Try not being a jerk yourself and help US help YOU.
