An Open Letter to Family and Friends (Pg.2)
by Fred & Rochelle Hosillos

As a result of that Iloilo experience, a very close Adventist friend in the U. S. emailed Fred, some time in early Fall of last year, to verify if Fred “was advocating teachings contrary to our Adventist beliefs”. At that time, Fred thought he didn’t, but after further study of Seventh-day Adventist beliefs in the light of Bible Truth- “Sola Scriptura”- we have come to the conclusion that indeed he did!


We have come to the  conviction that Seventh-day Adventism’s pillar doctrines cannot pass the Biblical test, therefore, we cannot remain SDAs and maintain our integrity.


To make our transition as painless as possible (our feelings of having been betrayed by the frauds and cover ups of the SDA leadership for 100  years, or more, are now behind us), we will address here only the key Fundamental Beliefs of SDAs, which the denomination claims make it uniquely  God’s only true church for the last days.


  1. 1844- This date, called the Great Disappointment, is the culmination of William Miller’s erroneous exigesis of Daniel 8: 14, which he at first estimated to be the second coming of Christ in 1843. When the earlier date failed, Miller recalculated, and despite the counsel of other religious leaders to desist from his failed prophecy, he insisted. But Ellen G. White believed that it was God who purposely misled “His people” to 1843. Here’s what she said, “I saw that God was in the proclamation of the time in 1843. It was His design to arouse the people and bring them to a testing point, where they should decide for or against the truth.” –Early Writings, 1945, p.232. (How could EGW call the wrong date truth? Instead of humbly admitting a failed prophecy, she blamed God for the error, and lambasted those who counseled William Miller against setting a definite date for the second coming of Christ!) Here’s more from Early Writings,  “ The preaching of definite time called forth great opposition from all classes, from the minister in the pulpit down to the most reckless, heaven-daring sinner. ‘No man knoweth the day nor the hour,’was heard from the hypocritical minister and the bold scoffer. Neither would be instructed and corrected by those who were pointing to the year they believed the prophetic periods would run out… Many said they had no opposition to the preaching of Christ’s coming, but they objected to the definite time. God’s all-seeing eye read their hearts. (Here’s a characteristic EGW intimidating, judgmental tactics) They did not love Jesus near… These false shepherds stood in the way of the work of God…

Ministers who would not accept this saving(?) message themselves hindered those who would receive it.”(pp. 233,234)

Jesus himself warned his inquiring disciples, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.” ( Mark 13: 32,33 NIV)

The question that begs to be asked is: If Jesus Himself humbly declared that even He, and the angels in heaven do  not know when His second coming will be, which angels gave E.G. White and company, the definite, but failed date for the second coming of Christ in the mid- 19th century? I’m sure God does not play games with His children in a matter as vital as His Son’s return!
