    Remote Populations

    I want you to think with me of the most remote place on Earth where people live, the year around. As you think, give some thought as to how the Gospel can reach that place. It is a place that has each year has 7,950 hours of darkness and 810 hours of daylight. How do you think that God will reach those who live in that place? Well it has a wooden church building that seats a total of 30 congregants. It is served by two volunteer members of the clergy. It is located on King George Island in the Antarctic. The priests who serve are from the Russian Orthodox denomination. It was constructed in 2004. It attempts to serve the spiritual needs of researchers from Russia, Chile, Poland and Korea. The work of God is accomplished today by many people. I doubt that SDAs will ever have a congregation in that location. NOTE: Thanks for the above to Guideposts and their editor Kaylin Kaupish.

    November 26, 2021 I Am Christ's Friend “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15:15) Some things in Scripture are harder to understand and believe than others. Christ, the Sovereign Creator of all things, the offended Judge who declared the penalty for sin to be death, the One who willingly died to pay that penalty and redeem us from bondage to sin, now calls us His friends. Certainly we would like to consider Him our friend; but are we really His friends? If He were telling someone about His friends, would He include us? Somehow this seems too much—too good to be true; but He insists it is. Actually, Christ said, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you” (John 15:16). We are His friends by conscious choice on His part, even though He knows more about our inward nature than we will admit to ourselves. He has demonstrated His friendship by the greatest act of love imaginable, when He voluntarily died to save us from our sins. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (v. 13). Furthermore, for His friends He promises, “Whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you” (v. 16). His love for us surpasses human love. “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love” (v. 9) “that your joy might be full” (v. 11). He has “ordained” us as friends so that we “should go and bring forth fruit, and that [our] fruit should remain” (v. 16). What joy! There should be a response on our part to His friendship. Almost as a self-evident fact, He states, “Ye are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you” (v. 14), among other things, “that ye love one another” (v. 17). How can we do less? JDM

    COVID case

    There is power in prayer. Great news Gail and I hope that his mother's know that were here on Adventistan is pulling for his complete health. I have lost several close friends in the church, due to COVID. It has shook us all, but when I hear those who made it through I rejoice. Stan my prayers goes out to you as well. You are a man I know with great integrity and strength. YAHWEH I feel is please so keep the faith, my dear brother and also your friend. Blessings to all who is dealing with love ones, friends and family through the Pandemic!
  10. It is about me and how you have judged me and accused me of outlandish things. I made one change to avoid your constant negative remarks. The reason is because I differ being an Adventist. I am not mainstream nor have ever said that I was. You, even now have accuse me of a lot of things that I know others have gotten away with. You also put up a very bigot website claiming that's what I believe in. I and another person asked you to respond to why did you do this. It had nothing at all to do with me believing that the Phoenician is the language that Abraham spoke. It was not Semitic and I showed you proof. You may not accepted it and that's fine. There was no reason for what you did, and you know it, and so do I. Never answered but avoid the questions. It needs to be address Pastor Matthews! You have tried to undermine me on little unnecessary things. Because I use the SACRED NAME these are versions on the market. Because I did not use a bracket vs parenthesis you said that it made it look like the source I used said it. I can see if others thought it then you commented but no one did. You have stated that what I have provided is incorrect sir, and that is not so. You have yet to prove it either. Why should it be important to list all of the Linguist known? When I have used a quote and provide the source. Not one time have you said that the sources were not correct! You started bating because the KJV version I used that happen to used the SACRED NAME was not good enough and who the translator was. Just like the JW, when I have used at time Darby, Gods Word and others. They are accepted and I have on my desk top with Bible Sword! I use Hub.com, and Gateway. On my desktop is my bought Logos now call Faith Life. I am getting ready to update it to 9 today. I have an arsenal of books collected in college, seminars, living overseas. I also have my decease mother's library. Why am I telling you this is my college degree has been a blessing and more so the Adventist Church back in the days growing up. My mother and the church grounded me to study for myself and to search the Scriptures. College gave me the tools and very good instructions on how to search and what specifically to look for. Also, the taught, the down fall of preachers, Bible scholars and religions. Universities professors many teach religion but are not religious. They are bias but they had great views in showing pros and cons of all religions. Let's say they were more Philosophers to me. I thank THE MOST HIGH for the opportunity to share the information HE has provided for my research of HIS WORD! You have never shown that the passage of Scripture provided was in error and it wasn't. That's it Pastor. But, let me make myself clear, I am not going to let people put down people of color like we did not contribute to the Bible. It is bigotry and it must stop! Neither will I allow people to make a mockery of good Black Organizations and say unjustified bigotry remarks because YAHWEH made Black people. We are all one race and bigotry is the problem that causes hatred. I do not have to accept any word because it does not express the true Creative SKILLS of THE ALMIGHTY ONES! You, I thought was to Moderate to keep us following the format and not what is commented if we provide the facts to the thread we are dealing with. Bottom line I just want you to respect who I am as I respect who you are! If you want to disagree and provide facts against what I commented on that great to me. We should provide and debate the facts and not go on tantrums. That's where I stand! Blessings and Hope Your Days Continue to be Great Pastor Matthews! Forgive the first I made a mistake!

    In response to a post that I made on Wednesday, stinsonmarri said what I have quoted below: * Stinsonmarri, you are correct, I am not your teacher. I do not have the slightest interest in teaching you anything. * This thread is actually not about you. You are not my center of interest when I post in this thread. The post that I made on Wednesday was focused on other members of this forum who have posted in this thread. It is true that I sometimes post here with you in mind. But, do not ever think that I am focused on you to the exclusion of other members.
  13. 7. Thus the Law is a kind of mirror. As in a mirror we discover any stains upon our face, so in the Law we behold, first, our impotence; then, in consequence of it, our iniquity; and, finally, the curse, as the consequence of both. He who has no power of following righteousness is necessarily plunged in the mire of iniquity, and this iniquity is immediately followed by the curse. Accordingly, the greater the transgression of which the Law convicts us, the severer the judgment to which we are exposed. To this effect is the Apostle’s declaration, that “by the law is the knowledge of sin,” (Rom. 3:20). By these words, he only points out the first office of the Law as experienced by sinners not yet regenerated. In conformity to this, it is said, “the law entered that the offence might abound;” and, accordingly, that it is “the ministration of death;” that it “worketh wrath” and kills (Rom. 5:20; 2 Cor. 3:7; Rom. 4:15). 10. The second office of the Law is, by means of its fearful denunciations and the consequent dread of punishment, to curb those who, unless forced, have no regard for rectitude and justice. Such persons are curbed not because their mind is inwardly moved and affected, but because, as if a bridle were laid upon them, they refrain their hands from external acts, and internally check the depravity which would otherwise petulantly burst forth. It is true, they are not on this account either better or more righteous in the sight of God. For although restrained by terror or shame, they dare not proceed to what their mind has conceived, nor give full license to their raging lust, their heart is by no means trained to fear and obedience. Nay, the more they restrain themselves, the more they are inflamed, the more they rage and boil, prepared for any act or outbreak whatsoever were it not for the terror of the law. And 308 not only so, but they thoroughly detest the law itself, and execrate the Lawgiver; so that if they could, they would most willingly annihilate him, because they cannot bear either his ordering what is right, or his avenging the despisers of his Majesty. 12. The third use of the Law (being also the principal use, and more closely connected with its proper end) has respect to believers in whose hearts the Spirit of God already flourishes and reigns. For although the Law is written and engraven on their hearts by the finger of God, that is, although they are so influenced and actuated by the Spirit, that they desire to obey God, there are two ways in which they still profit in the Law. For it is the best instrument for enabling them daily to learn with greater truth and certainty what that will of the Lord is which they aspire to follow, and to confirm them in this knowledge; just as a servant who desires with all his soul to approve himself to his master, must still observe, and be careful to ascertain his master’s dispositions, that he may comport himself in accommodation to them. Let none of us deem ourselves exempt from this necessity, for none have as yet attained to such a degree of wisdom, as that they may not, by the daily instruction of the Law, advance to a purer knowledge of the Divine will. Then, because we need not doctrine merely, but exhortation also, the servant of God will derive this further advantage from the Law: by frequently meditating upon it, he will be excited to obedience, and confirmed in it, and so drawn away from the slippery paths of sin. John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, book 2, chapter 7. The first edition was published in 1536.

    Trivia

    5 Things You Didn't Know About Thanksgiving_3 Happy Thanksgiving, folks! Although Thanksgiving will be a little different for many of us this year, today is still a day to give thanks! So grab a drumstick, and enjoy these 5 tasty Thanksgiving tidbits… The Original Thanksgiving Lasted for Three Days When the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians celebrated the first Thanksgiving in November 1621, they spent three glorious days feasting on venison, goose, duck, oysters, fish, and eel with cranberries and pumpkin -- but no turkey. Only five women are believed to have been present at the celebration among the 50 Pilgrims and 90 Native Americans. Originally, the Pilgrims intended to make it a day of prayer and fasting, but the arrival of the natives changed all that. Thomas Jefferson Canceled Thanksgiving During His Presidency George Washington was the first to declare Thanksgiving a holiday, but it was on a year-to-year basis, so presidents had to re-declare it every year, according to The Washington Post. Thomas Jefferson was so adamantly against Thanksgiving that he refused to declare it a holiday during his presidency, and many say that he called the holiday "the most ridiculous idea ever conceived." Most historians agree that Jefferson really refused to declare the holiday because he believed in the separation of church and state, and thought that the day of "prayer" violated the First Amendment. It wasn’t until 1863, when Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a federal holiday, that it was officially scheduled to fall on the fourth Thursday of every November. The Origin of Turkey Pardons Is Fuzzy The White House has a tradition of pardoning one lucky turkey each year. No one actually knows when U.S. presidents began offering their turkeys a presidential pardon. The annual tradition is believed to have begun in 1947 with President Harry Truman. However some historians believe that it actually started in the 1860s with Abraham Lincoln after his son Tad begged him to spare his pet turkey's life. Despite these two theories of the origins of the pardon, George H. W. Bush was the first president to officially grant a turkey a presidential pardon, according to The New York Times. Macy’s First Parade on Thanksgiving Day Featured Live Animals The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York took place in 1914 when Macy’s employees dressed in vibrant costumes and marched to the flagship store on 34th Street. The parade used floats instead of balloons, and it featured monkeys, bears, camels, and elephants all borrowed from the Central Park Zoo. It was also originally called the Macy’s Christmas Parade, but was renamed the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1927. Felix The Cat Was The First Balloon Used In The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade Felix the Cat was a star of the silent film era and had a comic strip in newspapers around the nation when he made his Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in 1927, the first year the event featured cartoon character balloons. Without a plan to deflate this massive balloon, NYC parade organizers simply let Felix fly off into the sky. Unfortunately, the Felix the Cat balloon got caught in some telephone wires and caught fire. In 2016, after a nearly 90-year hiatus, Felix made a triumphant return to the parade.

    November 25, 2021 Fullness of Blessing “And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.” (Romans 15:29) One beautiful characteristic of life in Christ is its fullness. Jesus Christ is Himself “the fullness of him that filleth all in all” (Ephesians 1:23), and He does everything to the full! When He fed the multitude, there were 12 baskets left over (John 6:13); when He brought in the miraculous catch of fishes, the nets were so full that they broke, and the boats so full they began to sink (Luke 5:6-7). First of all, He gives fullness of grace. “And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace” (John 1:16). Then comes fullness of joy and peace: “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full” (John 15:11). “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing” (Romans 15:13). It is then possible—in fact, we are commanded—to be “filled with the Spirit...making melody in your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:18-19). Not only does the Holy Spirit indwell us, but so do the Father and the Son, by the Spirit. Jesus said: “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him” (John 14:23). In this way, the triune God indwells us, and thereby we “know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that [we] might be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:19). All the fullness of God! In Jesus Christ “dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him” (Colossians 2:9-10), “for it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell” (Colossians 1:19). With the resources of such fullness of blessing available to us, we should be constantly growing “unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13). HMM
  19. The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, but it wasn’t observed as a national holiday until 1863. Sarah Josepha Hale, the woman who wrote “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” wrote letters for 17 years campaigning to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. Finally, President Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday 240 years after the tradition started in Plymouth, Ma. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone! James

    The End of Progressive Adventism

    Yes I have heard that a lot of times. But it is always very generic. The statement I am conservative (a term I don't use in Adventism since it has a real and historic meaning in politics. So it would be I am traditional or historic Adventist but I may have some liberal views but I really can't name any, they just might be there. It is because in the main one is either traditional/historic in their Adventist beliefs or they are not and that pretty much always comes down to in the main parts of a persons beliefs to be one or the other. A lot of time when people don't use precise language their so called liberal beliefs are really just political beliefs rather than anything to do with religious beliefs. In any case one of the reasons I finally wrote the article is because of the answer I got about pluralism in the church. If even the editor of a Progressive Adventist magazine and website has no expectation of pluralism in the SDA church, it does not seem a likely possibility. Then today I am watching the 3rd hunger game movie and in one of the speeches the character says to progress takes compromise. When you look at that what compromise would the historic/traditionalist make and what compromise would the Progressive Adventist make? From Wilson's sermon clearly he had nothing in his historic/traditionalist beliefs he would compromise on and I believe in my article I asked what would a progressive Adventist compromise on. Well I think that the Progressive Adventist has already said they would like to see pluralism in the church they have offered the biggest compromise possible. Where else can they go? So it is left to the historic/traditionalist side to accept some kind of compromise and they have steadfastly refused. So it seems that really sets up the end of this debate between Progressive and historic/traditionalists. The historic side sees any compromise with those who are being shaken out of the church to be ridiculous. As such it would be a denial of their faith to do that. I think it is totally unacceptable to ask them to reject their faith. As someone who accepts various beliefs it is no problem to accept their more narrow beliefs but they can't accept a wider view. Thus it is the end of Progressive Adventism, they have no place left to go in the Adventist church.

    The End of Progressive Adventism

    In response to a question regarding the origins of his justification theology, Dr. Ford cited 2 sources. The first was about 50 pages in Selected Messages that address justification. The second source was Spurgeon. He recommended reading "Christ's Glorious Achievements" when asked for a resource. "Christ's Glorious Achievements" is a collection of sermons by Spurgeon, detailing the things Jesus did for humanity e.g., destroyed death, sought and saved the lost, overcame the world, conquered death. As to a source for some of his OT insights, he recommended "Christ in All the Scriptures" by Farrar.

    The End of Progressive Adventism

    Jesus allegedly said "This is my body". We don't know his exact words. It's assumed he spoke in Aramaic, and that therefore the written Greek was a free-style translation by the gospel authors, who may or may not have been eye-witnesses. So one can support or refute transsubstantiation. Even for a biblical inerrantist, there is enough uncertainty in the meaning of the original Greek verb to support either view. Take the plain words of Acts 10 which clearly mark an end to the mosaic and levitical diet laws. SDAs who want to cling to the old food rules can pretend that the passage was written somewhat cryptically and that "unclean" foods was merely a symbol of circumcision and the so-called "ceremonial law", rather than accepting the words as we read them. Colossians 2:16 clearly indicates that sabbath is a thing of the past. But SDAs wishing to preserve the sabbath teaching can play word games by suggesting the Greek word for "sabbath" doesn't mean the weekly sabbath and means something else. There's enough "wiggle room" to support more than one interpretation. In Matthew 25, Jesus states that all of the predictions would come to pass in "this generation". Much ink has been spilled over what "this generation" means. With any problematic biblical passage, one can always claim it was incorrectly translated or that the original Greek/Hebrew meant something else or that the author wrote in code or symbol so as to shoehorn the meaning into what we want it to say. These techniques allow one to pretend to treat the bible as inerrant. In other words, instead of saying that Moses simply got the creation story wrong, we can claim that "evening and morning" means something other than a 24-hour day. Instead of saying that Paul was wrong when he admonished women to be silent in church, we pretend he was only talking about a handful of particularly gossipy women. Instead of saying that Jesus was wrong when he said all would be accomplished in "this generation", we stretch what was meant by "this generation". But for EGW's writings there's no such "wiggle room". EGW wrote that coal fires caused volcano eruptions - this is a falsehood. Now perhaps in 500 years or so, (if anyone is still reading EGW) some future "scholar" might claim that the word for "coal" used in the 19th century was broad enough to encompass magma and try to explain away her error. But in the 21st century we know that in the 19th century, "coal" meant "coal" and hence EGW was wrong. EGW wrote that drama was not to be used in preaching the gospel. Progressives pretend she didn't write this. In 500 years a new generation speaking a different language could argue that the 19th century English word "drama" was mistranslated, or meant something else. We in the 21st century cannot do this (and be intellectually honest), and so if we want to keep drama as a tool, we have to claim that EGW was wrong. Few progressives though are willing to take that logical step and declare that EGW was wrong. OTOH, many do try very hard to maintain the myth that all of EGW's writing were "inspired" and therefore they embark on the task of reinterpreting her writings. So "theatre-going" is reinterpreted to mean only 19th century burlesque theatre, and thus SDAs are OK attending London's West End, NY Broadway or cinematographic productions. When I was a lad 40 years ago, the proscription against theatre referred only to the building - one was safe watching cinema at home or in the church basement, just not in a building labelled "theatre". "Card-playing" is reinterpreted by some to mean "gambling", or to refer only to a standard deck of playing cards. So other games involving cards are OK. "Dancing" is reinterpreted to mean only lascivious dancing, and thus folk dances are now OK. Who knows, maybe one day the nonsense written about the "sunday law" will be reinterpreted as being merely symbolic and the church will maintain the illusion that EGW's writings are still truth.

You have my personal e-mail, I have not blocked you from sending me private e-mails. I have not blocked you from any e-mail in this forum. Yes, I have closed some threads and I have removed some threads from view. I do not understand what you said below.
  24. Pastor Matthew I never said that you quoted, that you do not like. Again, you are misquoting! I said: " Here is the bottom line: You do not like me Pastor Matthew. Because I speak my mind. That's on you and not on me." The way that you have acted toward the things I say because you do not like it. I have also disagreed on some of the things you sad. I feel (notice I said I feel), you do not like the things I present. The truth of the matter you do not have to. I am not a professor who is giving out grade. I am a commentator with the belief that Bible speaks for itself. I believe that Moses grew up as an Egyptian and live with Jethro a Priest of THE MOST HIGH! His wife was a Cushite and he spoke the native Phoenician tongue or language. I disagree that the Canaanite spoke a Semitic language. That's my right and I just provided to you why I believe that. What's so wrong with that? How many people that you constantly point out come from different believes speak out their point of view. But, with me, it eats you up alive why? Then you have the nerve to say, I present myself a college person! This is outrageous! I do not have to justify to you Pastor Matthew! But, I have and that's why you blocked me on email. You jump to the wrong conclusion because I did not put my education where you felt I should! Do you remember that! I am a 71 next month year old woman and I feel you should have respect for me or anyone who provide what I have! We come here to give a reason to what we believe and is it true! I will finish by praying for you and how you have judge and treated me! Again, I have not giving anything incorrect!!!!!!
  25. So, have I and some just so happen to be Black. I do not have supply you with Lindquist scholars, you do that. When I quote from them I supply them as I have always done! Show me that I have quoted from anything that was not correct or I did not give you the source. This is not a University or a College and I and not trying to earn a grade. I quote from all my sources and provide them and that's what matter.
  26. No, I did not say that all. Hear me loud and clear. I took and used the word crucified instead of impaled. Nothing else was changed in any thing I have presented. You are taking any little thing you can find out of context! I also showed the relation to the two words and you refuse to accept that! Mine, mine this thread is dealing with an article coming from JW but I cannot use an JW version of the Bible. This is really sad sir.
  27. All Dictionaries do not have multiple of meanings. In a general dictionary, each word may have multiple meanings. Some dictionaries include each separate meaning in the order of most common usage while others list definitions in historical order, with the oldest usage first. Dictionary - Wikipedia Etymological Dictionaries Definition: An etymological dictionary traces a word's development over time, giving historical examples to show changes. UsingEnglish.com Ltd. The others I will not dignify because I have used most of the above. Plus you are not my teacher Pastor Matthew, I asked you what did I say incorrectly. Nothing this is your bitter resentment showing!
