SDA Issues - Are You (or me) among the "19"?

The "1 in 20" is a figure of speech, but it makes her point. So figuratively speaking, are we one of the 19?...we need to ask ourselves.....
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith;
2 Corinthians 13:5
"It is a solemn statement that I make to the church, that not ONE in TWENTY whose names are registered upon the church books are
prepared to close their earthly history, and would be as verily without God and without hope in the world as the common sinner. They are professedly serving God, but they are more earnestly serving mammon. This half-and-half work is a constant denying of Christ, rather than a confessing of Christ.

So many have brought into the church
*their own unsubdued spirit, unrefined;
*their spiritual taste is perverted by their own immoral, debasing corruptions,
symbolizing the world
*in spirit,
*in heart,
*in purpose,
*confirming themselves in lustful practices,
*and are full of deception through and through in their professed Christian life.
Living as sinners, claiming to be Christians!"
Christian Service p.41 E.G.W.

"...But I think you will find, if you look at it, that it is not a prediction of what proportion of the church will be saved, but is a comment on the spiritual condition of the church at the time she made the statement. Today it might be better, or it might be worse. But I do not find evidence of a predictive element here regarding the ultimate fate of Seventh-day Adventists."
