Dear Abby SDA letters - 1 0 The News-Messenger. Fremont. O., Wednesday....
1 0 The News-Messenger. Fremont. O., Wednesday. April 18, 1984 Advice Facts confused on religious group DEAR ABBY: If you had to print that letter from "Nancy B." with her off-the-wall list of no-nos for Seventh-day Adventists, why didn't you follow it with some facts? I always thought you did your homework, Abby. Now I'm beginning to wonder about your literary professionalism. If you're going to throw church ideologivs and personal theories into your Dear Abby By Abigail Van Baran column, you should become knowledgeable in the doctrines of all churches and not accept as gospel any old thing some reader happens to send to stir up things and cause your readers to come to wrong conclusions. Seventh-day Adventists are Christians who worship in church on Saturday, await the second coming of Christ, believe in the virgin birth, the Trinity and baptism by immersion. They discourage divorce and do not drink alcoholic beverages or use tobacco. They are discouraged from drinking coffee and tea (notice I said DISCOURAGED, not THROWN OUT if they do). They are interested in medical and welfare works of all kinds around the world and so many other caring Involvements with our society. Back to Nancy B. and her "list" of taboos: For the most part she was on target, but I'm an S.D.A. and I wear a wedding ring and a touch of makeup. However, that last no-no forbidding marital relations on the Sabbath because "it is considered a sin to seek pleasure on the day set aside to worship the Lord" is totally false. Please set the record straight. MAGGIE B. IN BAR-STOW DEAR MAGGIE: My apologies. I shall attempt to set the record straight by publishing this letter: DEAR ABBY: "Nancy B." is not very well-informed about RELAXATION STATION what is expected. She was correct to say that Adventists avoid the use of tobacco and alcohol. That may be one of the reasons they live about seven years longer than the average. Abby, God invented sex, so it is highly unlikely that he would forbid it on the Sabbath. SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST PASTOR key PAI1ADOL ASPIRIN-FREE PAIN RELIEF Tablts 30 et. Capsulos 24 et.
