Presentation AbstractAlthough the three founders of the Sabbatarian Adventist movement already believed in conditional immortality before 1844, it was not until early 1854 that they began considering this teaching a “leading doctrine” and “present truth.” Previously they expressed their conditionalist views only randomly in the context of other topics. However, when the mysterious rappings turned into demonic manifestations claiming the identity of deceased people, Sabbatarian Adventists realized that their conditionalist belief constituted the only safeguard against this deception. Thus they started to publish numerous articles and books on the topic in order to inform people about the deceptive nature of spiritualism.
