Both a devout Seventh-day Adventist and a Former Seventh-day Adventist answers the “World’s Last Chance Sabbath Challenge.” The “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team” remains silent and has never answered these questions.

I normally do not waste my time with the “off-shoots.” But I have seen their website evolve since they debuted in 2004 and they are now getting “further into the deep end of the pool,” and it is very disturbing to see how many THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE are falling for their non-sense and are diving in head first – not knowing the waters in which they dive. You will no doubt perceive, as you read this post, that I take a different tone when dealing with these “off-shoots.”

An older Seventh-day Adventist gentlemen, who was a “father figure” for me, and the best Christian I have ever known “hands-down” (he passed away in April, 2009), would have classified these people as “off-shoots,” no doubt about it! That is why I use the term in this introduction. It reminds me of Robert Parks and brings back a smile to my face.

Any ways In all my other articles writing about the orthodox SDA faith, I am pretty much laid back and relaxed, but in this one I am sitting straight up with my chair in the full upright position. In other words I speak VERY DIRECTLY in this article, more so than I normally would. The reason is that the WLC Team is becoming out-right fanatical and it is paramount that somebody sound a warning here, and give some very good reasons why they should reject their teachings.

Fact: They have abandoned several of the Fundamental Beliefs of the SDA church. Including the Saturday Sabbath.

Fact: WORLD’S LAST CHANCE has a focus on convincing SDA’s to leave the SDA Church and join their movement.

World’s Last Chance is a COUNTERFEIT Movement for Seventh-day Adventism. They likewise use the writings of Ellen G. White. And they claim that they alone have the correct understanding of scripture. When questions are asked in which they are unable to answer they lock the thread posted on their website, and say things like,

“We have answered all the points that you have raised within the hundreds of pages of content we publish at WLC. We pray that you will have the time you prayerfully study them and ascertain the truth for yourself.”

“Finding answers for a life and death subject should be a consuming pursuit.”

Just today I received both of the above responses from the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team.” And Just like the questions of several other devout and sincere Adventists who post their questions on their website, my questions have likewise gone unanswered! Instead I am advised to read the equivalent of a Novel on their website. I replied that I do not read fiction, and I would appreciate if they would simply answer the questions. I will post my questions at the bottom of this article.

It is the opinion of this author that they do not directly answer difficult questions because 1. They do not have the answers. 2. They are hoping I will become convinced enough by their theory to forget these questions or downplay the significance of these questions. In other words they are hoping, that by reading hundreds of pages on their website you and I will become indoctrinated with their beliefs!

When I call HP Customer Service, I get someone in India who I can barely understand. Lovely people, but when it comes to asking about technical questions it does make matters more difficult. But I give them props compared to the responses I have received from the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team.” HP does not hand me the manual, and tell me to figure out the answer all on my own. They actually help me to solve my problem!

Look I do not have a bone to pick here. I am no longer a Sabbatarian. As a Former-SDA I think that both the SDA church and the World’s Last Chance Cult are out of harmony with scripture in regards to the law and the covenants. However I think if someone is going to believe in the writings of Ellen White and be a Sabbath keeper they would be far better off staying in the SDA church than getting involved with this off-shoot movement, and because of that reason I thought I would post a page advising SDA’s to stay away from this cult, giving very good reasons why their theory is wrong.

Obviously if you have read anything else on my website www.loudcry.org and www.loudcry.org/sda you will see that I am no longer a SDA. And frankly that gives me a unique perspective on this. I do not see the Sabbath as binding under the New Covenant, so I really do not care who is right. I am a neutral party looking at both sides and can see some serious flaws in the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE theory. They are so obvious that this theory is quite comical, and laughable, if it were not so tragic that so many thousands of Adventists are leaving the SDA church and getting involved with them.

From a Seventh-day Adventist perspective, the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE website is far more dangerous to the Seventh-day Adventists than my own website. Here is why. I am direct about my stance on Ellen White and the Sabbath etc. WORLD’S LAST CHANCE on the other hand is like a wolf in sheep’s clothing giving themselves an appearance that they are Seventh-day Adventists, and true believers in Ellen G. White. All the while they undermine very clear statements made by Ellen White about the 7th day of the WEEK i.e. Saturday, being the Sabbath day. They undermine the fundamental teachings of the SDA church. They lead people to leave and join their own movement. In every sense, WORLD’S LAST CHANCE is an anti-SDA church group of people. So don’t be deceived by them, they are NOT SDA.

If I were still a Sabbatarian today I would have no difficulty choosing between the Lunar Sabbath theory of the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE website and the Saturday Sabbath of the SDA church. I would pick the Saturday Sabbath, hands down!

Bottom line from a Adventist Perspective.

EGW – Saturday is the Sabbath
WORLD’S LAST CHANCE – Saturday is not the Sabbath

Just in case you are not familiar with what WORLD’S LAST CHANCE teaches now a days, Let me fill you in.

They do not believe Saturday is the Sabbath. What they do believe in is something referred to as the Lunar Calendar Sabbath. They teach that the Sabbath ALWAYS falls on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th of each Lunar Month, regardless of which day of the week it falls on. If you think you have troubles getting Saturdays off every week try taking this to your employer! They will think you have gone “looney” over this lunar Sabbath theory!

“[The] Sabbath day does not depend on any calendar. It occurs every seventh day regardless of the lunar or lunar-solar calendars.”

שְׁלֹמֹה צײטלין – Solomon Zeitlin, 1952

Jewish Historian

Anyways, they have something called the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge.” On that page it presents what appears on the surface to be a VERY CONVINCING case. Looking at the presentation of scriptures given it would APPEAR that Sabbath always landed on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th of each Lunar Month, regardless of which day of the week it falls on. The “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge” is to demonstrate that the Sabbath occurred in the Bible on any other day than these dates.

Right (August 21, 2011) now the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge” page says,

Important: No one has yet been able to show us as a Team convincingly from Scriptures that we are in error since the challenge was first posted 635 days ago.”

I entirely disagree! This challenge was answered three months ago, and the proof is right there on their website, in a thread that was locked by the Administrator and that has gone unanswered.

The Topic is called “Ellen White’s view of the 7th day Sabbath” and is posted by a SDA by the username of “patientsaint83″ I have decided to post his comments UNEDITED here on this page. in case they ever get deleted from WLC, the points they bring up will not be lost.

Afterwards I will return and share my own points, that have likewise gone unanswered by the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team.”

patientsaint83 Comment # 1

Again, Ellen White is revered as a prophet…but how do you feel about this following quote from her about the Sabbath being on Saturday?:

“Amid the gloom that settled upon the earth during the long period of papal supremacy, the light of truth could not be wholly extinguished. In every age there were witnesses for God–men who cherished faith in Christ as the only mediator between God and man, who held the Bible as the only rule of life, and who hallowed the true Sabbath. How much the world owes to these men, posterity will never know. They were branded as heretics, their motives impugned, their characters maligned, their writings suppressed, misrepresented, or mutilated. Yet they stood firm, and from age to age maintained their faith in its purity, as a sacred heritage for the generations to come.” {GC 61.1}

-It’s definitely clear that the Sabbath she’s talking about is not based from a luni-solar calendar. So do you believe she is wrong?? This particular Sabbath, which people all throughout the dark persecution of the Papacy kept, was a Sabbath based on a continuous cycle – every 7 days….as stated in Exodus 20 and Genesis 1-2.

And the following quote:
Like the Sabbath, the week originated at creation, and it has been preserved and brought down to us through Bible history. God himself measured off the first week as a sample for successive weeks to the close of time. Like every other, it consisted of seven literal days. Six days were employed in the work of creation; upon the seventh, God rested, and he then blessed this day, and set it apart as a day of rest for man.” {CE 190.1}

-The Spirit of Prophecy is saying that of course the Sabbath originated at Creation, and HAS BEEN PRESERVED through Bible history. She says that Yahuwah measured off the first week AS A SAMPLE FOR SUCCESSIVE WEEKS TO THE CLOSE OF TIME. So….is she wrong??? Her description of Creation Week and the Sabbath is in accordance with the Bible, but she says nothing about a lunar-based Sabbath.

patientsaint83 Comment # 2

B-berean,

Thanks for responding. Though, I have to say that your reply did not help me at all, nor did the links you provided. I have read most of those articles already.

There were no direct answers given to some of the more difficult questions in those forums, only circular statements or replies.

The “3 Months in a Row” article/e-course/video is not an end all/be all answer to this question I asked. This article is viewed as the supposed direct connection to the Luni-solar Calendar. But with careful and necessary study, I’ve discovered that the Luni-Solar Calendar is in NO way proved by the 3 months of the Exodus. I explained this thoroughly in another forum earlier today, if you would like to go back and read that question. I’ll post some information about the time from the beginning of the exodus to when Moses and the Israelites arrived at Sinai.

Numbers 33:3
“They departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day after the Passover the children of Israel went out with boldness in the sight of all the Egyptians.”

-So far, so good. They did indeed leave on Abib 15. But here’s the FIRST discrepancy: They BEGAN their travelling, their EXODUS, on the 15th of Abib. SO, HOW could that particular day have been a Holy Sabbath Rest Day??? Also, it was the first day of the Feast of ULB, the 15th, but that does NOT say in ANY way that that Feast Day fell on the 7th-Day Sabbath, on which absolutely NO work is to be done. Let’s keep reading.

Exodus 19:1-2
“In the third month after the children of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on the same day, they came to the Wilderness of Sinai. For they had departed from Rephidim, had come to the Wilderness of Sinai, and camped in the wilderness. So Israel camped there before the mountain.”

-Okay….so they DID arrive exactly 3 months later, on the 15th day of the month. BUT, a SECOND discrepancy: where does it say they had a Sabbath Rest upon this arrival? It does NOT. It’s pure speculation. But if we keep reading that chapter, it becomes clear that it would’ve more likely been the 17th, and NOT the 15th, that was the Sabbath that month.

Exodus 19:10-11,16
“Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes. And let them be ready for the THIRD DAY. For on the third day the LORD will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.” Then it came to pass on the third day, in the morning, that there were thunderings and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain; and the sound of the trumpet was very loud, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled.”

*We are not told this day was a Sabbath either, but this is the day, the 17th of that month (the THIRD DAY after arriving at Sinai), that Yahuwah gave the Israelites the 10 Commandments. On that same day, the reading of the rest of the Covenant was done by Moses to Israel all the way until Exodus 24.

Exodus 24:15-17
“Then Moses went up into the mountain, and a cloud covered the mountain. Now the glory of the LORD rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.”

-Our Father works in patterns of seven. The reading of the Commandments and the other ordinances was done on the THIRD day after they arrived, and Yahuwah rested on this same day. Then, He remained for six more days and on the seventh day, He told Moses to come into the midst of the cloud.

*This shows that scripture does NOT say that the 15th day of this particular month was a 7th-day Sabbath. But scripture DOES insinuate that the 17th was more likely to have been the 7th-day Sabbath that particular month instead. Either way, there’s NO WAY to be 100% sure how much of a lapse of time, if any, occured between the reading of the 10 Commandments and Yahuwah resting on the mountain. To say that the 15th day of the Third month of their exodus is to make a pure assumption.

Concluding, this supposed article does not explain why Yahuwah’s prophet, Ellen White, somehow “did not know” about the Lunar Sabbaths…and if she supposedly did, why did she not keep them holy??

**Here is the first and main part of WLC’s answer to this question in their forum:
“While Yahuwah’s messenger was given prophetic understanding that the seventh-day was the Sabbath, which was the first step in coming back to the knowledge of the true Sabbath; the manna story reveals the whole picture, that the seventh-day Sabbath is connected to the lunar phases of the moon.”

Truly, if this manna story, which I explained in detail earlier, is the primary basis for the Luni-solar “truth”, then it is not truth at all, but assumption. And I’m sorry, but assumptions do not hold water up to the Holy Scriptures, and they do not secure faith. I’ve shown that the manna story DOES NOT “PROVE” beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Seventh-day Sabbath is somehow connected to the lunar phases of the moon.

If Ellen White is agreed to be a prophet, then the Spirit of Prophecy MOST DEFINITELY would have revealed the whole Sabbath truth to her, so that she could fully instruct the church. AND THEN they would’ve had enough concluding information to make a FULLY INFORMED decision as to where they stood.

I don’t say these things out of anger or to argue, only to stress truth my friend, and anyone else who reads this. Opinions, maybe’s, could be’s, might be’s, do NOT equal truth… but actually have more probability to leading to error.

1 Thessalonians 5:21,22
“TEST ALL THINGS; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”

With love,

B-berean,

Believe me, it IS ONLY truth that I seek. As I have told many, I have no care for how ugly, unpopular, or unspoken the truth may be – I will follow it. BUT, I also do choose to test all things I’m confronted with by Holy Scriptures. And as I said in my last reply, arguing is NOT my goal, nor what I desire. Having a differing belief and stating my reasons for that do not define me as argumentative. I’m simply contending for the faith, respectfully…as we are told to do. I’m trying to give people the opportunity to see ALL sides here, that’s all. Do you not think I’ve had questions everywhere I’ve gone??

Proverbs 14:12
“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”

-We need to be 110% sure that these things are actually FACT….and not just speculation. Would you agree with that?

-Also, if we are all Christians here, then we all should openly and honestly be able to have a healthy discussion about these topics. My original question was about Ellen White, and I’m still patiently waiting for an answer about that. She in fact taught about a “Seventh-day Sabbath“….that existed since Creation Week. Yahuwah rested on the Seventh Day because He chose to, not because a heavenly body He was going to LATER create on Day 4 would somehow govern HIS Sabbath rest. I just can’t see how that equates.

But if you will, let us then take a quick look at the verse you gave me.

Deuteronomy 16:1
“Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to the LORD your God, for in the month of Abib the LORD your God brought you out of Egypt by night.”

-Okay, I see the following things from this scripture:
1) Yahuwah instructed the Israelites to observe the Passover, which is indeed Abib 14.
2) They began their journey at night.
That is ALL that is said here. There is NO inclination whatsoever that a Sabbath rest (7th day Sabbath) was done on the 15th, was there? We can assume that they did or not, but what does scripture say??

Again, referring to Numbers 33:3
They departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day after the Passover the children of Israel went out with boldness in the sight of all the Egyptians.”

-Okay, no matter how we cut this, we can clearly see that the Israelites WERE in fact traveling on the 15th.

-When they arrived at Sinai, what does it say that they did? Does it say that they had a Holy Sabbath rest? No. Scripture simply says they “camped in the wilderness”…that they “camped there before the mountain”. Is that REALLY enough information to ascertain whether or not that day was a Sabbath??? I don’t believe so at all. Not only that, but it also just sounds like they arrived there, set up camp, and probably quickly rested from a VERY long journey. Anything beyond WHAT IS WRITTEN is to assume.

What is the honest evaluation of the scriptures I just listed above? Is the evaluation going to be a 100% Bible-based one, or a few guesses made on assumptions??

Have I seen any instances in scripture were the Sabbath DID happen on the 8th, 15h, 22nd, or 29th? YES! Does that mean ALL Sabbaths in the Bible occured on these days? NO.

Have I found cases where the Sabbath occured on a different day, other than the ones suggested?? YES.

It is with this honest evaluation that I’ve taken opportunity to take a step back and ask VERY important questions, to myself and my Creator. I completely agree with your statement that sound conclusions can ONLY be based on the weight of EVIDENCE. My friend, it is in fact evidence that I’m waiting to see more of. I’ve seen some evidence…as well as a good bit of conjecture and assumptions thus far.

May Yahushua guide us all in these dire times.
-Vince

Note: This thread was immediately LOCKED, and has never been answered by the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team” That was three months ago! the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Challenge is based on the very same scriptures that patientsaint83 discussed in the above three comments. It is the opinion of this author that the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge” was Successfully Answered THREE MONTHS AGO by patientsaint83. My hats off to patientsaint83. He demonstrated quite clearly that the pillar verses for the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE theory are used in a totally presumptuous way, taking liberties from the text which the verses themselves do not conclusively say. I agree with him that the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team have built a massive Tower here that has a foundation based on assumptions that the scriptures themselves do not clearly say. In other words patientsaint 83 demonstrated how weak the foundation of the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Movement is. A Building is only as solid as its foundation. This foundation is almost non-existent!

**************************************************************************************

My Answer to the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge is found in 7 questions.

  1. Point #1 160 Cultures around the world have a 7 day week, with the 7th day named SABBATH. Search Google for “The seven day week in 160 cultures.” And you will find a chart you can download on Maranatha Media’s website.
  2. Point #2 every other month under the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Lunar Weeks that they propose there would be a 9 day week. 30, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 That week would require a commandment to work 8 days and to rest the 9th! The other months begin with a 8 day week. Why is there no record in the Bible, or history for that matter of a 8 or 9 day week among the Jewish people?
  3. Point #3 the Kariate Jews used the Lunar Calendar up until the 19th century, There is extensive records of the transition over to the Fixed Calendar of the Rabbinical Jews. Why is there no record of the Karaite Jews changing which days they kept the Sabbath?
  4. Point #4 there are extensive records of debates between Karaite Jews and Rabbinical Jews over the calendar during the dark ages. We could read all about that on the Internet. Why is there no record of any debate over the difference in how the 7th day Sabbath was calculated?
  5. Point #5 Can you produce any historical record of any kind to support your lunar cycle Sabbath? Any record of it changing? Any debates over that change? Or is history completely silent as though this Lunar-Sabbath theory never existed until WORLD’S LAST CHANCE created it?
  6. Point #6 How do you explain the 7 day weekly cycle among the Jewish people dating back thousands of years? Had the Weekly Cycle and the Lunar Cycle week you teach occurred at the same time it would be VERY CONFUSING! Also explain your theory in light of the fact how the days of the weekly cycle were named by the Jews, first day, second day, third day fourth day, fifth day, sixth day and Sabbath? Besides what would the 30th day of the month been called that week?
  7. Point #7 Creation week. The Bible says God rested the 7th day. Do you consider that the 8th day 15th 22nd or the 29th day of the month? How could the first day be anything other than the first day, and the 7th day be anything other than the 7th day?

I suspect that no one will ever meet the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge” since the judges of this challenge are not impartial. I think it is highly unlikely that a small group of men and women who have successfully gained thousands of followers would ever give that power up over them and admit they are wrong.

I created a profile on WORLD’S LAST CHANCE and posted these 7 questions on my profile page, and also submitted them as my response on the “WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Sabbath Challenge.” The only response I got was….

“We have answered all the points that you have raised within the hundreds of pages of content we publish at WLC. We pray that you will have the time you prayerfully study them and ascertain the truth for yourself.”

I replied.

“This is your website, Please tell me which pages to find the answers for each of these points. I should not have to read the equivalent of a novel to find what I am looking for. This is a cop-out of an answer. Please be more specific. Other wise I will consider that you do not have the answer. Thank you!”

They responded.

“Finding answers for a life and death subject should be a consuming pursuit.”

I replied,

“This response is absolutely ridiculous. I normally do not speak in a tone like that. Stop and think about it. I ask you a series of question, which obviously you do not have answers for, because if you did you would answer them. So how do you respond? Read our entire website, the answers are there somewhere! Sorry I do not beleive in fictional reading. I read your challenge, and I have sincere and reasonable thought questions about why I do not think your theory works. If you have already answered these points before then you ought to know how to answer them now. I think you are hoping I will read your whole website, and get on board and forget these questions. Why don’t you simply answer the questions?

Your challenge will never be answered if this is how you answer. Someone can present the answer to the challenge in very clear terms, and your cop-out of admitting you cannot refute him will be “read our entire website of hundreds of pages.” I get better customer support when I talk to a “specialist” in India who I can barely understand! At least they actually answer my questions.”

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 1 Peter 3:15

Are you able to answer every man that asketh you a reason? You are supposed to be the experts on this teaching. This answer convinces me I have asked things too difficult for you to answer. Prove me wrong. Simply answer the questions. PLEASE! Thank you!

Look, if you do not know how to answer these questions. Please refer my comments over to someone else who is willing to give these questions more serious attention. Thanks!

The Questions asked by Seventh-day Adventist “patientsaint83,” and myself HAVE GONE UNANSWERED, by the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team. I have forwarded THIS PAGE to the WORLD’S LAST CHANCE Team with hopes of getting more direct responses to the questions presented in this article. I sent them an email, which said “COMING TO A GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE NEAR YOU SOON” with a description and a link to this page. I doubt I will ever receive a reply, but if I do I will most certainly post them here. I suspect that if they do reply it will be with more illusive answers such as we have already seen.

**************************************************************************************

The Worlds Last Chance team split over the site’s adoption of an unbiblical interpretation of a “Lunar Sabbath” or “Luni-Solar Calendar”, WorldsLastChance.org: was created to defend the Seventh-Day Sabbath against the teachings of an Eighth/Ninth-Day “Lunar Sabbath.”

**************************************************************************************

Food for thought: WORLD’S LAST CHANCE still believe themselves to be “Seventh-day Adventists.” In reality it would make better sense if they called themselves, “Seventh, Eighth and Ninth Day Adventists!” This is the one name they could take for themselves that the General Conference wouldn’t bother to take them to court for Trademark infringement. Besides it would better represent what they teach, since they do not solely keep the 7th day as Sabbath as the Seventh-day Adventists do.

September 25, 2011 – Over a month has passed since posting this article, and I have still not received any further replies from the Worlds Last Chance team! Not one! I will keep you updated as time progresses.

THANK YOU FOR VISITING THE LOUD CRY MINISTRY!!! WE HOPE THIS ARTICLE WAS A BLESSING TO YOU! FOR MORE INFO PLEASE READ Biblical Sabbath Keeping

    “I believe the seventh day of the week to be the Sabbath of the Bible.” – Adventist Home p. 68.

    “The weekly cycle of seven literal days, six for labor, and the seventh for rest, which has been preserved and brought down through Bible history, originated in the great facts of the first seven days.
    When God spake His law with an audible voice from Sinai, He introduced the Sabbath by saying, “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” He then declares definitely what shall be done on the six days, and what shall not be done on the seventh. He then, in giving the reason for thus observing the week, points them back to His example on the first seven days of time. “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it.”
    This reason appears beautiful and forcible when we understand the record of Creation to mean literal days. The first six days of each week are given to man in which to labor, because God employed the same period of the first week in the work of creation. The seventh day God has reserved as a day of rest, in commemoration of His rest during the same period of time after He had performed the work of creation in six days.” – Lift Him Up p. 58

    “The Jews have the word of God for their Saturday, since it is the seventh day, and they were commanded to keep the seventh day solemn.” The Spirit of Prophecy Volume 4, p. 180.

    “Like the Sabbath, the week originated at creation, and it has been preserved and brought down to us through Bible history. God himself measured off the first week as a sample for successive weeks to the close of time. Like every other, it consisted of seven literal days. Six days were employed in the work of creation; upon the seventh, God rested, and he then blessed this day, and set it apart as a day of rest for man.” – CE p. 190.
