Question / Issue
I understand your objection against 1844. But the Bible is clear that the dead know not anything ( Eccl. 9:1-10; etc.). Be careful of being angry against everything associated with Adventisim even if scriptural.

Answer / Solution

The Scripture you are quoting is specifically addressing things under the sun or this earth realm. You must read this entire section of Scripture to get the full context of what is being said. The phrase "under the sun" is used repeatedly.

 

A few questions for you to consider: Did the Apostle Paul say to be absent from the body is to take a nap or to be with Lord?  If the dead know nothing, why would Jesus give us the account of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31?  And finally, how do you deal with the souls in Revelation 6:9-11?
