Fair point, the word is sometimes used this way, and I'm OK with that. My hesitance here also comes back to my baptistic background. I've had plenty a person call me legalistic because I believe its not lawful to make images of Christ or because I believe its sinful to refuse to use wine in the Lord's Supper or because of my view of the sabbath (which probably isn't as strict as yours but is still far, far stricter than what is practiced in most dispensational leaning circles) and so on. I've seen it used to shut down conversation too many times to be willing to use it as an argument, even though of course on this matter I agree with you.
I don't know what the SDA views of Christ's human nature is. I'd actually be significantly more worried about SDA Arminianism than the soft judaizing of being against the eating of certain foods, but then, I'm kinda weird like that :)
Yeah, I don't agree with them, but I'd honestly rather someone keep Saturday than keep no day at all. I've encountered individuals who I don't see as heretical who hold that view.
