I was just fellowshipping with some friends and we were discussing the pillars and landmarks of the Advent faith. I worked on this chart with some friends nearly 20 years ago and thought I would share it with you.

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 1 Peter 5:10

Foundation and Central Pillar

The Cleansing of the Sanctuary

“The Scripture which above all others has been both the foundation and central pillar of the Advent faith was the declaration “Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the Sanctuary be cleansed.” Great Controversy 409

Warning!

My message to you is: No longer consent to listen without protest to the perversion of truth. Unmask the pretentious sophistries which, if received, will lead ministers and physicians and medical missionary workers to ignore the truth. Every one is now to stand on his guard.   God calls upon men and women to take their stand under the blood-stained banner of Prince Emmanuel. I have been instructed to warn our people; for many are in danger of receiving theories and sophistries that undermine the foundation pillars of the faith. 1SM 196,197
