No, I didn't watch the video.
The 7th-day Creation Sabbath has NOTHING to do with Adventist theology. "God" was the initiator of the 7th-day Sabbath ...not Adventists.

Does anyone here read their Bible before they participate in these type discussions?

Once again I need to say that "I" don't keep any day as "the Sabbath" and it's no concern of mine nor any business of mine who does and who does not keep the Sabbath. It just irks me when the very people who lash out at gay people with (misinterpreted) scripture have no idea - or they do know but disregard - the (properly interpreted) Sabbath command of the Ten. At this stage of my life with all of my experiences with the church for the past 20-some years I see mainstream Christianity as little more than a sham. I wish there was some way we could simply delete present-day Christianity and begin again. Actually, I think this is what some of the 'progressive' churches have attempted to do.

Default Seventh Day Adventism Theology Debunked

Debunking theology seems a vapid goal because anything that supports a belief in God is surely acceptable to God. What we should focus on are the counterproductive and unloving behaviors, practices and attitudes that are spawned within the various theologies. Once it becomes clear that what God wants from us is voluntary, then ANY methods of coercion or force used on others, including shunning, discrimination, shaming, or the more violent Inquisition variety of the dark ages are simply NOT acceptable to God. They remove the voluntarism. The specific theologies are moot and in many ways completely irrelevant to the central belief in God so why pursue them???
