ANY denomination that has an international ministry & missions will be 501c3 and UN affiliated. This only means you work with the state laws no different than when Jesus paid taxes and took the census. Jesus also preached in synagogues registered with the Romans who were ruling then.

Water baptism? Really? It is biblical.
While SDA may have some problems around Ellen White, the critics often have even more problems i.e. Christian-Zionists. They attack SDA because of the SDA lack of support for modern state of Israel. (such are 'spirituallysmart' & 'jesus-is-savior')
Ellen and James are buried under markers like any others. There is an obelisk in the graveyard. So get your story straight. And the obelisk is a SUN RAY. But you have no interest in exposing the biggest sun cult in the world in Rome and her daughter churches.
SDA are a denomination that has error like all other denominations. Christian Zionism is a Jesuit creation from the beast in Rome. Still I wouldnt call the many Christians deceived by this 'satanic'.
Who cares what the 'critics' say. The Word is all that matters.
True, there are tons of satanic cults, but this thread is about the SDA satanic cult. SDA is the most deceitful though, because most others can be smelled a mile away. SDA is sneaky.
If a person wants to get water baptized, fine.
SDA satanic doctrine teaches that water baptism is required for salvation.
That is blasphemy. (Eph. 2:8)
Again, I'm not calling anyone anything. The Word is the only judge.
There are a lot of Christian denominations in error about many doctrines, that does not make them 'satanic'. They may have been founded by agents of satan but the Christians within are just misled like most others.
Eph 2:8 "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:"
Understand "the wages of sin is death" but by grace we are saved. Grace is forgiveness of sin. This doesnt mean we do not need baptism. The verse doesnt say that and no doctrine is built upon any one verse.
Jesus set the example for his new followers with baptism that symbolizes the coming resurrection.
"Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John 3:5
"He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned." Mark 16:16.
"Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. ... knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin." Romans 6:4-6
