Probably the most unique aspect of Seventh-day Adventists is not their lifestyle, but rather their faith. Among Seventh-day Adventists, lifestyles practices vary within any country and around the world, however, the faith does not as much vary, and the fundamental principle and practice of Sabbath observance that is common is also backed by promises. Exodus 15:26, Isaiah 58:13-14 Because of wide ranges in lifestyle practices, the statistical advantage or Seventh-day Adventists with longevity is with faith above lifestyle.

The lifestyle does significantly matter however! If the statistics for those adhering to a careful, balanced lifestyle are looked at, the the advantages leap to an even higher level of benefit.

Finally, though not seen in the copy from NEWSWEEK above, the actual article header is "How to Live Forever"! And that is the most important aspect of this notice. Seventh-day Adventist have been entrusted with eternal truths that they are to share with the all people so that they also can have these advantages - Life, and life more abundant, both here and eternally. These eternal truths are Biblical, and at the pinnacle of the discovery that started the Protestant Reformation. These truths cause conflict however, and always have between those who agree with Biblical truth and those who do not but rather mix Bible truth with tradition and even error. The truth with set you free. The converse is also true - error with not set you free. So here is an opportunity to search for the message committed to this diverse worldwide people group that has more than longevity benefits, but even eternity benefits!
