If he were a d*ck, you would have stopped thinking about him by now. Almost a year later, and you're reaching out to me, too. During my 30s while going through my own romantic drama and heartache, a friend once said to me, "When somebody shows you who they are, believe them." Her words have always stuck with me and I totally understood the truth in her advice, but didn't necessarily apply it to my life when it came to romantic interests.You said you shouldn't be thinking about him though. Your own desire to heal is a powerful thing, and so is your solitude. To be fully present, you have to allow the time and space to exist on your own as you are - without the distraction or expectations of another person. Let's be honest, the crappy ones are far more entertaining to read about than the ones that go well.Also, the sad state of reality is that there are for more bad ones than there are good.
The theology of the Seventh-day Adventist Church resembles that of Protestant Christianity, combining elements from Lutheran, Wesleyan/Arminian, and Anabaptist branches of Protestantism.
Adventists believe in the infallibility of Scripture and teach that salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
The 28 fundamental beliefs constitute the church's official doctrinal position.
The denomination also has a number of distinctive doctrines which differentiate it from other Christian churches.
There are very few teachings held exclusively by Seventh-day Adventists.
Some of their views which differ from most Christian churches include: the perpetuity of the seventh-day Sabbath, the unconsciousness of man in death, conditional immortality, an atoning ministry of Jesus Christ in the heavenly sanctuary, and an “investigative judgment” that commenced in 1844.
Furthermore, a traditionally historicist approach to prophecy has led Adventists to develop a unique system of eschatological beliefs which incorporates a commandment-keeping "remnant", a universal end-time crisis revolving around the law of God, and the visible return of Jesus Christ prior to a millennial reign of believers in heaven.
(For differing theological perspectives, see the articles on Progressive Adventists and Historic Adventists.) The Seventh-day Adventist denomination expresses its official teachings in a formal statement known as the 28 Fundamental Beliefs.
This statement of beliefs was originally adopted by the church's General Conference in 1980, with an additional belief (number 11) being added in 2005.
Also highly significant are the baptismal vows, of which there are two versions; candidates for church membership are required to accept one.
In addition to the fundamental beliefs, a number of "Official Statements" have been voted on by the church leadership, although only some of these are doctrinal in nature.
