What denomination is Amazing Discoveries? 

We are a self-supporting ministry that supports the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but are not sponsored by the Church in any way.  The name Seventh-day Adventist explains that we keep the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath, and that we are looking forward to the Second Advent or Second Coming of Jesus Christ. We also believe that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the World, and that it is only because of His perfect life, death, and physical resurrection that we can have eternal life. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in His atonement. We also believe that out of love for Christ and what He has done on our behalf, those that confess to love and believe in Him will want to model themselves after His character and follow His principles as outlined in the ten commandments. We believe that these commandments have not changed over time and are as relevant today as they were when they were written on tables of stone. We believe that the principle of loving God with all your heart, mind and soul, and your neighbor as yourself is simply another way of expressing those very commandments.

To learn more about what Seventh-day Adventists believe and teach, you can watch the Total Onslaught series by Professor Walter Veith on our media site: www.amazingdiscoveries.tv or find out more here

We do, however, believe that God has faithful people in many other denominations, not just the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and that He works with each one individually. Although we do encourage people to visit a local Seventh-day Adventist Church, we believe that each person must be convicted for themselves by the Holy Spirit, and that God will tell each individual what He wants them to do.

Some people ask us why we do not mention our relation to Seventh-day Adventists on our website. It is not a matter of being ashamed, but it is a sad fact that many people out there are initially turned off by churches of any kind. Religion in the eyes of many is seen as negative. We want to present the truth of Jesus in a fresh way that does not put off people who are seeking. We do not want to be church peddlers, either. When the Holy Spirit convicts, He will direct people to the right church. Our job is to present truth and leave the consequences with God.

Our presentations are designed to preach Bible doctrine as we have been convicted and as we have personally studied it. We attempt to let the Bible explain itself. If it so happens that what our speakers present is also what the Seventh-day Adventist church believes, then so be it.

I believe I am supposed to minister for Amazing Discoveries. I too am 7th Day Adventist(Baptized last June), but I am put off by the teaching that one can lose salvation through "functional" sin. Christ said all manner of sin is forgiven those who blaspheme him, (Jesus), but blasphlemey against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable on Earth or in Heaven. I believe 1st John 1:9 sums it up well, with that conditional first word.

Okay, next to my family and my kids, this is my Passion topic! It's what gets my juecis flowing.First and foremost, I believe that those statistics are proof that the church has fallen asleep. The church has narrowed itself into a corner and unless willing to adapt to some change, this statistic I fear will grow. Churches have been doing what they do because that's the way it's always been done. Some churches hold tight to Tradition. The church can never compete with culture. They will never win. Its just the way it is. But the church can certainly change from "doing" to having a strategy.If You read my "About" section on my blog, you'll see a line where I wrote, "I bleed Orange." I encourage you to check out www.whatisorange.com to learn more about that and to see where my firm stance on what the church should be doing.We (as in Us, Moms, Parents, etc) put So much responsibility on the Church for those poor statistics. I see it as a 50/50 deal. Parents need to wake up and realize that they are the primary spiritual leaders in their kids lives. The church is a "Partner" to you as a Parent. Or at least it should be. There in lies the problem. Churches are failing to see that they need to come along side of us as parents and support us and understand that what happens at home is far more important than what happens at church. I am a product of Christian parents, christian private schools and church all my life. I saw friends come and go within the church. From my experience, The leadership within the church are all on different pages. Nursery, elementary, youth and "big" church are all doing their own thing. There is no strategy. They are silo'd. I beg of the church to align themselves together with parents and have a strategy for how to get a child from birth through college not ever wanting to leave the church! It is possible. It just means people are going to have to adapt to change and let some things go. Sorry for the rant. I warned you that it was a Passion area for me. I could say so much more.... : )

Only just recently touched base with your ministry. Praise the dear LORD that you are promoting the Everlasting Gospel to this poor world, and to the members of the Seventh day Adventist Church. The messages are greatly appreciated in this home, and is now the most watched channel.

Dear Pastor Veith, My husband & I are Americans from the state of California, retired in Ensenada, B.C. Mx. We both listen to your programming all the time, along with others, & have learned a lot from you, & Pastor Victor Gill, & others. i on 3ABN BROADCASTING. I am on FACEBOOK, under the NAME OF:
PHYLLIS MOLES, & am wondering if there is some way you could have ADTV added to my face book under the ADVENTIST INSIGNIA, IN THE SQUARE WITH 3ABN, VOP, IT IS WRITTEN, ETC. This is my ministry to the world, having SDA programmings on my FACEBOOK SITE. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOUR SATELLITE PROGRAMMING ON MY SITE ON FACEBOOK. May God keep blessing your work, Very sincerely, Mrs. Phyllis Moles.

I'm an orthodox christian, raised by a protestant mother (swiss) in an orthodox country (Greece), and I feel I can express my opinion, without bias. You must understand that I live in a country whose people became violently impoverished, and eschatology has become a refuge for anybody feeling victimised and ready to meet his maker. The volcano called "public anger'is about to react, and I'm patienty observing the process, and YOU have made all this easier.
All I can state is that you could easily hold a lecture here (Greece) provided the language barrier didn't exist, and you would probably offend very few people. The Holy Trinity in embedded in our constitution, and anyone preaching biblical values and ethics is welcome.
I would be interested in knowing your opinion on the subject of the Septuagint translation or the Thora, and its translation from greek to latin (and its corruption of course). I think it would make your mission easier, and give you an extra argument, in explaining the evolution of the catolic church and its splinter groups (take no offence please. I've also been called a heretic since 1054... but I know I;m not).
As a kid I was taught that we are called as christians to either Ερευνατε τας γραφας (investigate the scriptures) or πιστευε και μη ερευνα (beleive and do not question). You are doing just that, and I don't have a problem.

Keep it up

On April 11, 2013 at 12:30 pm I watched a program re: desenitized and changing habits. It was a young man speaking and he said it was a 6 day seminar. I would like to know how to purchase the DVD's of that seminar.

Walter, I believe that you are doing very well to disclose the needful conditions of society, religion, politics, deception, signs/logos, and all that People need or not need to know for salvation. Your platform for AD is good until the SDA church is mentioned. "Church", defined from Strong's and Young's Concordances is, 'Them that are called out". Of what? And, into what? Jesus said, "Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand" Matt. 4: 17.
The kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom and does not come with observation. It is not in word, but power. There are many indicators one can understand to know whether he is in the kingdom of God or not. Like Noah, calling People into the ark, we are called to present the kingdom of God, inviting People to enter. Letter to the Colossians states, "And hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:" 1: 13.2. The phrase is past tense, lists the Father having done the work. If you notice here, only a child's faith in what God has done, and placed us in, can we hold to the fact, that what God has done, is so. The invitation to enter the kingdom of God is lacking in your presentations, and inviting People instead to the Seventh-day Adventist Organization (Corporation), which is not the Kingdom of God, nor the divine Theocracy of God, as E G White knew it to be, until 1904. The oldest religious organization (a corporation) is the PAPACY, and 98 percent of all mainline Protestant CHURCHES are themselves CORPORATIONS. Yes they offer tax exemptions for tithes and offerings, but the STATE gets total control of what is not to be said about or regarding the STATE, NATIONAL, FEDERAL, FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM, UCC, UPC, IRS, SSA, FEMA, commerce, and of course what is a corporation. The kingdom of God "is not of this world" John 18: 36. Where do we separate from the world? First, it is from organized religion! People are normally weary of religions. That is good. What they need to know is how they may enter the kingdom of God. There is one book called, 'Bible', that introduces the kingdom to the People.
One last thought. Revelation 17: 5, where all the words of the name are capitalized, indicating CORPORATIONS. What are we to come out of? Certainly not to go back into another. Corporations centralize the People--tell them what they need to believe--what they should study--what they should read--what programs they need to support--and the list goes on, and membership to the religion is the main goal. The war between the Kingdom of God, and the kingdom of man secular or religious is at full strength, and it would be wise to know clearly the 3 angels messages found in Revelation 14: 6-11, and the fourth angels message found in Revelation 18: 1-4. Let the People study for themselves by the 'Spirit of Truth' in 'all things' John 16: 13.
