Ever wonder if the Seventh-day Adventist understanding of Bible prophecy is accurate? Here are some reports which confirm our beliefs regarding the end time events to take place prior to Christ's Second Advent.
"The people of the United States have been a favored people, but when they restrict religious liberty, surrender Protestantism, and give countenance to popery, the measure of their guilt will be full, and 'national apostacy' will be registered in the books of heaven." Review & Herald, May 2, 1893.
"To secure the popularity and patronage, legislators will yield to the demand for a Sunday law.... By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness...." Vol. 5, Testimonies for the Church, p. 451.
"This national apostacy will speedily be followed by national ruin." Review & Herald, June 15, 1897.
