    Part 1: Is Seventh Day Adventism a Cult?

    Part 1: Is Seventh Day Adventism a Cult?

    Join us as we continue our conversation with Colleen Tinker and Nikki Stevenson Co-Hosts of the Former Adventist podcast on whether or not Seventh-Day Adventism is a cult.

    This episode goes into detail about the great struggle that Walter Martin author of "Kingdom of the Cults" had when trying to pin down certain doctrines that the SDA believed.

    From the book "Questions on Doctrine" that was published by SDA, to other proponents of SDA Doctrine stating that the "Questions of Doctrine" were misleading at best, this episode brings to light the great controversy of our day which is whether or not Seventh-Day Adventism is a cult.

Great content, awkward pacing

I love the content Cultish puts out, but I wish the hosts would write down their questions ahead of time. They often get jumbled and lost for words and it’s hard to keep track of where the conversation is going. More succinct & pre-planned questions!

Highly recommend!

This podcast is so informative and interesting! I really enjoy the variety of guests and topics they cover. It’s been interesting to learn about different world views and to unravel how and why they were started.

Eye opening SDA episodes

Loved the podcast and Apologia for a while. But the Seventh Day Adventist episodes have really get close to home for me. I don’t have any connection to the SDA but I grew up with a mother who said similar end times jargon. She is bipolar schizophrenic and abused me mentally and emotionally. A lot of what I went through is similar to what some coming out of cults have described with the manipulation and gaslighting. I haven’t found a group that I can open up to about my experiences since I didn’t really come out of a cult with others. Thanks for the work y’all do keep it up!
