I don't like it when people talk about us that way either. A lot of Internet things talk about Ellen White being a false prophet and Adventist is a cult and things like that. But, I've noticed, that they all seem to be personal, with very little actual facts. Like, I remember one of my friends started a conversation about an article they saw on the Internet about the 'cult' of Adventism. It was very opinionated. It said things like: 'Almost all Adventists I've met are really mean.' 'If a person is being really distant from you, their probably an Adventist.'
It was quite ridiculous, actually.

Check this out, and see the sense in our logo. We have a well-thought out and beautiful logo that represents our beliefs in one look. People write all types of things cause they mis-interpret our logo. They don't want to read this article: www.adventist.org/en/information/identity/logo/

Don't believe them, and I hope you have a Happy Sabbath!!
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing

- Chorus of "Let me sing" by Andrew Peterson

Relax. I don't really think this is a big deal. People shouldn't make fun of us, but we can't change it, so lets not waist time discussing it.

We know what our logo means. Why dignify idiotic theories by talking about them more than they need to be talked about?

The logo and its meaning

The logo reflects the core values of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Its foundation is the Bible, the Word of God, shown open because its message should be read and put into practice. Central to that biblical message is the cross, which is also a central feature of the logo. Above the cross and the open Bible is a burning flame that represents the Holy Spirit, the messenger of truth.


Seventh-day Adventist Church Logo
THE SECOND COMING
The lines at the top of the design suggest upward momentum symbolizing the resurrection and ascension to heaven at Christ's second coming, the ultimate focus of our faith.

THE FLAME
This is the shape formed by three lines encircling an implied sphere. The lines represent the three angels of Revelation 14 circling the globe and our commission to take the gospel to the entire world. The overall shape forms a flame symbolic of the Holy Spirit.

THE CROSS
The symbol of the cross, representing the gospel of salvation, is positioned in the center of the design to emphasize Christ's sacrifice, which is the central theme of the Adventist faith.

THE OPEN BIBLE
The Bible forms the base of the design and represents the biblical foundation of our beliefs. It is portrayed in a fully open position suggesting a full acceptance of God's word.

It is our hope and prayer that though this logo is a very simple picture of the foundation of Adventist beliefs and values it may be a recognizable symbol of the Adventist message to the world

Oh.

Does anyone know why the logo was changed though?

Because of the time we're living in I guess. The message. This is the message we're supposed to be sending, so they put it in the symbol. Hey, I actually don't know what it was before. Can anyone tell me?

People these days. They can take anything and manipulate it to look like whatever they need to prove their point. Yeah, we could manipulate something of their religion to look like something like witchcraft...
i read this article about an SDA person with a picture of an owl on their shoulder, and the person writing the article blamed us of witchcraft.
So we can't hold an owl? Ever? In our lives?

I didn't say that it was used for the AY logo, I said that it looked like the logo

The AY logo does incorporate the three angels and a world like the old SDA logo does, sooooo... I think my statement still stands
