You know you are a Seventh-Day Adventist...

  1. When it's a miracle to get past Wednesday when going over the Sabbath School lesson in church.
  2. When a discussion about godly relationships turns into "Where are the godly men?"
  3. When you have the EGW Writings app on your phone, tablet or iPad.
  4. When you tell people you're Adventist and they ask "So you don't eat meat?"
  5. When you grade fast food restaurants on the quality of their veggie burger.
  6. When being 'unequally yoked' is always an issue.
  7. When you see someone without jewelry and wonder if they are Adventist.
  8. When the audio or visual equipment won't work, someone says "Satan is working hard to destroy this program."
  9. When mentioning women's ordination is the equivalent of jumping into a war zone.
  10. When you have a story when you accidentally ate pork.
  11. When you get excited on Fridays.
  12. If you define 'lay activities' as a Saturday afternoon nap.
  13. If your favorite meat loaf contains no meat.
  14. If you do two days worth of cooking every Friday.
  15. If the words 'Sabbath' and 'Saturday' are interchangeable depending on who you are talking with at that time.
  16. If you read ingredients before buying any food items. 
  17. If you know what 777 stands for.
  18. If the only tea that you drink is Rooibos.
  19. If you grew up believing Ellen White was a member of your family.
  20. If your bedtime stories were always about real people and never fairy tales.
Being an Adventist is one of the greatest blessing in my life. When I was growing up I was embarrassed by the fact that I went to church on Saturday but once I understood the reason why (Exodus 20:8-11), it became a privilege. Many may think Adventism is a cult or is too restrictive but we are ONLY a people in search of biblical truth. We believe in righteousness by faith and that Jesus, our only way to salvation, is coming soon. This makes us want to be the best people we can be, be it in dress, diet, conduct, conversation, to name a few. It makes us a peculiar people in a world that sees nothing wrong with self-serving.
