They really stress the importance of education and health unlike the dark Watchtower. From what I've been told they're a part of their community and very fitness-minded people.
Have an evangelical acquaintance/friend who received her doctorate in Loma Linda and she's in awe of the SDAs just like my friends who are residents. Their faith, families, education, HEALTH, fitness - on and on and I tried to tell her they were rooted in same crazy as JWs and she couldn't comprehend the two (nor can I) having anything in common -- she was never a JW but knows the JW horror. I agreed with her and SDA early history is the only negative I'm aware of -- they did practice shunning but that's a thing of the past -- perhaps a few very aged hard liners but nothing like cult JW.
