    Do not be fooled by Mr. Bachelor’s apparent and soft spoken appearance. He supposedly agrees with Adventist profit Ellen G White. Ellen’s writings one of which is the “great controversy” that do not line up with the bible. It sounds like that Doug agrees with Ellen’s “Investigative Judgment even though there is not any scripture in the bible that supports the position. If I hear it right Doug Preached about women not being leaders or being pastors and it sounded like that he said “men are to rule over women”. The Southeastern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists objected to this sermon. I would read the Bible (not Clear word version) and compare it to SDA doctrines and I think you will find in my opinion that they are false. Check the following links

    Doug seems like a nice enough guy, as evangelists go. He certainly doesn't beg for money or advocate any "seed/time harvest" bullshit. And, apparently, he doesn't roll around on the ground babbling gibberish while speaking in tongues. Still, Seventh Day Adventists are simply a different kind of crazy. They spend a LOT of time stressing Saturday as the true Sabbath and spend WAY too much time on the Book of Revelation acid trip. Even so, I find myself enjoying Batchelor's "messages," while remembering that it's all nonsense. For sheer hilarity, however, give me Daystar and their money-grubbing, laugh riot "preachers."

    Pastor batchelor does an amazing job teaching FROM the bible. Frequently saying "lets let the bible explain itself" then using other verses in the bible to explain the bible. Love it. He's clear and also funny which helps to keep us interested. Of course the teachings is what's most important here. Other's use their own interpretations :( scary. If you don't agree...don't be scared to study the points of disagreement, But make sure you do it with an open mind. If you predispose yourself to be against something, you may miss the big picture, and miss a goldmine of info. Be objective-put yourself on the otherside of the topic in question. I've always been very skeptic of everything I hear, which is a good thing if you're also willing to do a deep study and put your own judgement aside for a little. I've fallen away from the SDA church [ per my own weaknesses-don't judge me unless your perfect :D ] but ALWAYS return, This is the church that's been the closest to the Truth. *The Rapt...

    I would like to send a requeast to Doug. " Doug, please bring out a DVD explaining the diffrences on Moses Law and Gods Law. so that we can show christians, how the bible only refer to the one law, please explain to them what Moses law consisted of, Many critics like to critizes, but when you ask them, Okay, tell me more in detail what Moses law consist of, then they do like the devil likes to do, Change the point of view. If many knew the diffrences ( taken out of the bible ) between Gods Law and Moses law, Then they will all be able to see that what God puts in place is there for many reasons. I understand their point, not wanting to their ways, with each diffrent paster speaking, but we all need to remember, Jesus and the dissiples went out to teach the truth, and you were given the truth only two times, then they moved along. So how do you know what is the truth. Through actually studing, not creating your own God, But reading what "The God" Jesus Christ gave us, and by studing hi... Read more

    I like him but when I'm watching hi he goes way off base and away from scripture. So no I don't really reccomend.

    Doug is a sincere guy, but more importantly everything he teaches comes straight from the Bible with a great number of passages to solidify every truth. If you disagree with any of the things he teaches from the Bible, please provide scriptures supporting your idea, and (more importantly) explain the meaning of the multiple verses he gives in support of his idea.

    He blenderizes the Bible. He fails to distinguish the differences between what Israel was told and what we are told today as a member of the body of Christ. He mixes law and grace and he does not rightly divide the word of truth so he teaches error.

    I am so fortunate to live in a country where we are free to worship & express ourselves! Nothing can compare to quality time with our Creator God, but Pastor Doug is a great friend to have even if you don't always agree with him. Colossians 3:12 "Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy,kindness,humility, gentleness, and patience". God Bless Us All!

    He is a false teacher. He teaches Israel's law program as Church doctrine today. Israel was under the law. We are under grace. Israel was under a performance based salvation. We are saved by God's grace today. Even Jesus in His earthly ministry was a minister of the circumcision, the Bible says. You as gentiles were uncircumcision and you can read in Ephesians that we were not in Israel's covenant of promise. We were without God. We were not under the law. If you want to study the Bible correctly, you have to rightly divide it. You have to separate who the Bible is talking about, if it is talking to and about Jews under the law or to the body of Christ which is neither Jew or gentile but everyone that trusts Jesus as their Savior. Don't be deceived. This is your salvation we are talking about. What you believe is VERY IMPORTANT. The only thing that will lead you to hell is unbelief.

    When you have been raised all your life as a Roman Catholic, listening to Mr. Batchelor is painful at first. I became defensive of my religious beliefs. Then I turned to the Baptists, Methodists, Pentecostals for comfort hoping that it will get lighter and easier. But it just got worse and more confusing than ever because they were telling it to me with their own interpretation instead of reading it from the Holy Book exactly the way it is. Doug Batchelor is Spirit-led! He brings the message of God in these last days exactly from the Book. He does not have any hidden agenda in sharing this Truth to us, except for the fact that he is God's messenger of the Good News of Jesus Christ. The True Sabbath of the Lord, which is Saturday and NOT the man-made, man-ordained, and man-fought Sunday, which the Webster Dictionary defined as the first day of the week is sacred according to God. We must obey like in the last days of Noah! I just wish that these other religions will stop confusing me b... Read more

    Pastor Doug, thank you for allowing God to move through you, thanks for helping me be saved. I was once lost, but now I am found! You are a man led by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is truly in you. It is a beautiful feeling when I learned the Truth, I saw the Truth, and now apply Jesus' teachings in my life. I am calmer, happier, cleaner, and content. Thank you, and may God bless you more with a long life that is spiritually strong and always ready to fight the struggle here on earth from moment to moment of each day. The enemy is like a roaring lion that is ready to devour those who are in the business of saving souls like mine and my kindred spirits. I am now in the Spirit of the Lord God, the Most Omnipotent, Most Omniscient God, thanks to you Pastor Batchelor!

    Very accurate, biblical and humble pastor. I'm pentecostal and when I first heard his message, I never heard someone speak using bible verses so much, in one sermon and speaking so thoroughly, not using the bible out of context, or focusing only on a few verses. I had spoken to many other pastors and those that studied theology but no one had really been accurate. I first heard his message on tv, and flipping through all the channels, almost every other preacher was talking about wealth and prosperity and when I finally got to this channel I heard people that were actually talking about subjects in the word of God that were not going along with what everyone else was saying but what the word of God was saying and that really touched me. And prior to listening to his messages, I was praying and seeking to know the truth from the word of God and to understand the book of revelation. Seeing that there are so many denominations and so many different teachings, that by ourselves, we could j... Read more

    Beware of the Seventh Day Adventists! They will brainwash you! I know, I was raised one. Took me many years to get them out of my system. This man calls Adventists "The Remmant". I thought the Remmant are Jews. Some Adventist call themselves spiritual Jews. They are mixed up--hopefully they will learn the truth.Study the Bible for yourself, first and foremost.  Try to read it with an open mind, and try to interpret it on your own, without it being based upon someone elses agenda or interpretation (e.g. Ellen White, SDA's such as Doug Batchelor, et al.).Skip around in it if you wish, don't feel that you have to read if from cover to cover.  I used to do that and could never get past the first few chapters of Genesis.   The Gospel of John, Proverbs, and Psalms are great for a start.  You will learn so much more reading it on your own without it being based upon someone elses agenda!!  I certainly did.Adventist really need to study the book of Galations as well.

    He has some good teachings, but errs on major doctrinal issues. Overall, beware and don't follow his teachings unless you are well versed in the Scripture, so that you can discern the truth from the deception.

    I was born and raised SDA until God opened my eyes to the solid Gospel.  Adventists are correct in saying that the Sabbath was never changed to Sunday. However, if one understands the covenants and what Christ completed on the cross, then you do not fall for the straw man arguments.  Like it or not, the SDA church has some wonderful, wonderful people yet there are cult-like qualities with one being they claim to be the only true church.  Their evangelism is over 90% sheep stealing from other Christian churches.  While they sound very normal in many respects, there are other doctrines such as the Investigative Judgment and their prophet as a "continuing and authoritative source of truth" that you don't realize right off.

    I heard him say last night that the church has replaced Israel. That tells you that he is a false teacher. Israel will have that land and the twelve tribes of Israel will rule and reign in the future. God said they would have that land forever and He does not lie.

    It seems that so many other church denomination talk bad about the Seventhday Adventance, calling them an occult, when the truth is they no nothing about the Seventhday Adventance at all, only what they hear. You be your own judge. I also was (notice I said was) a believer that Sunday was the day to worship God (that was a day set aside by man not God, No where in the bible does it say to worship on the first day-Sunday), I believe everyday we should worship our Father God, But Saturday which is the true Sabbath and day of worship. God said it from the very beginning, way before the Ten Commandments (for those who think that the Ten Commandments which God wrote with his finger where done away with) Read your Bible for your self. Doug Batchelor has taught me so much, he makes it so simple and clear and backs all of it up with scripture. What more do you need, the bible explains it all, don't go by what other people say or do, study the bible first hand, don't just browse though, really ... Read more

    Doug batchelor is a very passionate preacher who obviously loves God with all his heart. He also is one of the few preachers who has alot of knowledge on a vast amount of biblical subjects which is very rare. He is a genuine person who has been lead by God to reach thousands upon thousands of people and bring them to a relationship with God. I agree with all of doug's beliefs in the bible they are all biblically based and I would dare anyone to prove his beliefs wrong using scripture. About his beliefs in the seventh day as being Gods day I would like to see anyone who doesn't believe this to be so to give just one scripture in the bible in which jesus says clearly that he has changed the day of worship from saturday to sunday. Because the sabbath is part of the ten commandments to believe that there has been a change in these you would have to have a direct scripture showing this change. GOOD LUCK!!

    I'm skeptical about everything I listen but if it's in the Word it's in the word. I've followed Doug Batchelor's seminars with the bible and everything that proceeded out of his mouth is bible based. I looked at some of the reviews from people who disagree with Doug Batchelor and it's a pity that they don't give biblical reasoning. The devil is real and so if we depend on feeling or we use bias judgements we will be deceived.God bless!

    I have seen a few of Doug Batchelor's seminars as well as having had the priviledge of meeting him in southern California a few years back. He is the genuine article, and his teachings are Biblical and accurate. We can all find things with anybody that we don't agree with, but it is the Bible, not a man, that we need to make sure we are in harmony with. He has a lot to offer from God's Word. If you don't agree with everything, accept what you do, and study out the rest. In the end, you are accountable to God for how you live before Him. You will not be able to get in, or claim you're being left out because of Doug Batchelor or any other minister. Any open minded student of God's Word will get a lot from his seminars.

    I think Pastor Doug is right on... It is obvious that he has studied his Bible. Concerning the question about Jesus being Michael the Archangel. 1 Thessalonians seems to be pretty clear. "The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout" Obviously it is speaking about Jesus coming with a shout and then It describes his voice as being "the voice of the Archangel". Some seem to think that if Jesus is given the name angel that means he can't be God, but the word angel acording to Strongs number G32 aggelos or ang'-el-os. the word angel means one who brings tidings (or messenger) Websters dictionary gives the same as a definition. Arch (Strongs #G757 archo or ar'-kho) means first (in political rank or power): - reign (rule) over. Websters says Chief; of the first class; principal; as, an arch deed. I am not sure what is being objected to... Jesus is obviously God. But what he did on the cross is un-argueablly the Greatest message of Gods love to ... Read more

    I don't agree with everything that Doug says, but he is right on so many issues that I have to give him 4 stars. His teaching on the Sabbath and the Roman Catholic Church can be proved by any serious look down the corridors of history.

    by the Staff or associates of Christian History Institute. 1999-2006.When will Jesus return? Christ warned that no man knows that day and hour. This has not stopped rash theologians from announcing dates. All have subsequently been disappointed by events. One of the most prominent prediction makers was Baptist preacher William Miller.Miller gained a large following, predicting that Christ would return on this day, October 22, 1844. His theories were not far fetched if one accepted interpretations in vogue through much of church history. The argument goes something like this: The prophet Daniel's eighth chapter speaks of 2,300 days. Many of the greatest scholars of the church (Augustine and Bede for example) took these days to stand for years. 490 years (the seventy "weeks" mentioned in Daniel 9:24) were "cut off" from the 2,300 years, leaving 1810 years. It was assumed that Chri... Read more

    Look. Shame on us if we just dismiss what he says because we have pre-conceived ideas about what we 'think' the bible says. If there's one thing for sure, Doug uses more scripture than anyone I've heard. Let him prove with scripture what he's saying. I'll bet you he can and does.

    By far the best preacher going around. He's not after money but teaches biblical facts. I guess not all will like what he preaches, but then not everyone likes God or wants to listen to him. There is a lot of logic to what is preached.

    Doug Batchelor could be a wolf in sheeps clothing. I do believe the SDA is the only true church of Jesus Christ in these very last days but there is something about Doug Batchelor that is not right. Have you noticed he makes the sign of the devil a lot in his seminars? That is where you fold your two inner fingers and stick up your index and little finger up. The first time I saw it I thought it was a coincendence but not 4 or 5 times in one seminar. Now I do believe the 1000 years are in heaven and then the earth is restored after the wicked are all killed but I think this man is working for Satan.

    Doug is a very good communicator, and seems to be acting out his convictions. I also would agree that he's not out to get rich, or bilk people. He is incredibly wrong on his sabbath views - which is too bad, because that is like the leven of the pharisees. But no man is perfect, and we're all learning.

    I have yet to find what Doug Batchelor has ever presented as doctrine that is unbiblical. Soul sleep is Biblical! Acts 2:29-34, "David... he is both dead and buried ... [and] is not ascended into the heavens..." Doug has an incredible knack for breaking down some of the most complex points, with Biblical support. Any one thinking otherwise, feel free to email his program. Heck, I did.

    The SDA Church isn't perfect. But it is closer than most. I am not an SDA. But I've done my research and I plan to be. D. Batchelor is 80% of the reason. He clears up some of the more eristic matters biblically. His sermons are almost completely informitive but vatical. He leaves the zeal and volume to the worship service. I can't listen to many other pastors the same way simply because they preach on vague concepts, feel good ideas, ways of living happy etc. Its all just fluff. Cotton candy that no one can live on. But the meat and potatoes, solid doctrines of truth are what I take from D. Batchelor. It is filling and gives peace to the weary and wandering mind of an uneducated, undisciplined christian.

    I've listened to many of Doug Batchelor's sermons. Never have I heard the Bible presented in such a clear and concise manner. I always pray before I listen or open my Bible. Jesus promises that if we seek for truth He will send the Holy Spirit to lead us into "all" truth. He will not leave us in the dark. If you want to hear another speaker that clearly teaches the Word of God try David Asscherick.

    Doug Batchelor is a man who has lived on both sides of the fence. I have compared the Bible to what he preaches, and he is right on track. As for anyone who says that Seventh-Day Adventists are a cult - you only say that because you actually don't understand what Seventh-Day Adventists believe. Seventh-Day Adventists are one of the only religions that actually take notice of the entire Bible, not just bits and pieces, and SDA's do not add/take information away, or take it out of context. Seventh-Day Adventists try to live according to the Bible. As the Bible is God's word, and its the only way out of this hell hole, we call earth. Doug Batchelor is a fantastic speaker about God's word.

    I could not get passed the first chapter of the "The Gospel According to Mary Magdalene" It should be called the "Gospel According to Doug Batchelor". Never have I seen someone try so hard to make trash smell so good. He quotes a scripture(s) to support a point yet when I look it up in my KGV it is so miss quoted or not even what is writen that I just laugh. Don't be the sheep of this shepard. He will lead you right to the wolfs mouth. Study your bible on your own. You will be much further ahead than if you seek Doug's interpritation of it. Get on your knees and ask God to open your understanding of what you have read. I don't care what church you attend so long as you listen to the voice of Christ. Just don't listen to Doug's.

    I just got a DSL line and thought I would try to find a Christian talk show I could listen to while at work. I found Bible Talk and was very intrigued - at first. They do a pretty good job of debunking the Pre Trib Rapture theory with scripture. So I checked out the Amazing Facts website and took a look at a couple of their articles. Whoops! Soul sleep? Investigative judgement? Annihilation of the wicked (although I admit it sounded reasonable) - I realized I had dropped into SDA land. That in and of itself would not be so terrible if they would just disconnect themselves from the false prophetess Ellen G. White. A warning to anyone who visits: be a good Berean and read the scripture yourself - they make some good arguments BUT they omit a few scriptures that would prove them wrong... The climate of ALL the churches in our modern day Laodicea is one of compromise of truth and error.
