PCG Discusses Seventh Day Advenist Conscientious Objector

PCG has published an article which discusses a Seventh Day Adventist conscientious objector who lived through World War II.
Our next example is not in the Bible. This man was never in the God’s Church, he didn’t have all of God’s truth, but he had the Ten Commandments. His name was Desmond Doss. Doss was born in 1919 to a very religious Seventh-Day Adventist family from Lynchburg, Virginia. He was taught as a youth that all 10 of the commandments were still in effect and that he should observe them. He strove to keep them all through his life even when it was hard, even when it was seemingly impossible, even if it would bring scorn and ridicule, even when it seemed dangerous. Two of those commandments in particular would prove very hard to keep: honor God’s Sabbath and don’t murder. (Source, November 5, 2015.)
Armstrongism is an offshoot of Millerite Adventism of the 1830s-1840s. It later produced the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Some of the Adventists who chose not to join them formed the Church of God (Seventh Day), the church into which HWA first got involved in religion and became ordained as a minister. This fact was shown in Bruce Renehan's 1995 book, Daughter of Babylon.

This fact that they originate as a movement from Millerite Adventism tends to be ignored by those who happen to believe the dogmas of Armstrongism.
