Yes they have many books of teachings.  The writings of Ellen G. White (their founder and prophetess).  She wrote many "inspired" books through which most SDA interpret the scriptures.


I'll never understand how people can read the Bible and ignore the part that says not to add or take away from it.

"The Bible" says that, but it actually says that in three separate books in the Bible: Deuteronomy, Proverbs, and Revelation. Each of those instances was recorded when the Bible was not even collected as yet as a unified book. When the author of Deuteronomy wrote it, was he referring to Deuteronomy? Or to Deuteronomy and books that had not yet been written (like Kings, Nahum, Mark, etc.)?

This is what turned me off from Dr. Ben Carson... he calls himself a Christian, but I don't see how any true Christian can pick and choose what they want to believe in the Bible.


I like Carson, and would gladly vote for him.  I wouldn't join his church though.

Well, that's it, really. To what extent do you have to agree with someone in order to vote for him/her?
