    May 5, 2021 Mercy and Truth “Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” (Psalm 85:10) The words “mercy” (Hebrew checed, also often translated by “kindness” or “lovingkindness”) and “truth” (Hebrew emeth) occur more often in Psalms than in any other book. In fact, “mercy” occurs more in Psalms than in all the rest of the Old Testament put together. Though at first these two concepts seem opposed to each other (for how can God’s truth, which abhors sin, be compatible with His mercy, which forgives sin?), nevertheless they are “met together,” for “

    There has been scholarly debate within Adventism in recent years as to whether or not Kellogg's book The Living Temple reflected Pantheism. I have not yet converted to the idea that it did not reflect pantheism on any level.

    Yes, I agree with what you've said. I don't want what I'm saying (or better said preparing to say) to be a kind of "gotcha". Part of where I'm leaning is that Dr. Kellogg, when he was in a favorable status within the Denomination, was one of the official apologists for the SDA Church and one of his main harping points was "The Personality of God". What I'm seeing is that Kellogg wrote extensively against the Trinity and in favor of the Personality of God and there wasn't a peep about how Kellogg was wrong. Kellogg ends up writing a book and that generated an immediate rebuke from E

    A few more statements here as a foundation of what will be coming this weekend. Ellen White: "Christians should bear in mind that God has a personality as verily as has Christ. They should so represent Christ's person and conduct that by doing His works they will manifest the character and spirit of the Father. Christ is the express image of His Father's person and character.--Manuscript 130, 1902, p. 11. (Diary, "Christ's Example in Every Line of Work," October 27, 1902.) “Some have difficulty in reconciling Christ's statement in John 14 : 28, " My Father is greater than I," wi

    Stinsonmarri: The problems with the logic of your above statement includes the following among other issues. * It may be true that no one can show you that Adam and Eve believed differently after they sinned, but, you cannot show that Adam and Eve believed the same after they sinned. You do not know what they believed in any kind of detail and neither do we. * Your arguments often fail on the basis of your logic. As an example, in the above post, you ask a question that no one can answer. You cannot answer and neither can anyone else. We do not know exactly what Adam and Eve

    Where are these differences that you speak of that is held by the faith ones. Show me if the Adams after sinning in the Garden was different, or Abraham, Moses Job, Nehemiah, Matthew, Mark, Peter, John. The only ones I read was mix were Satan and his fallen angels, Cain and his family, those lost in the flood, Job's children, Israel that were lost over and over mixing false gods with the TRUE ALMIGHTY ONES! Peter, James and John and so much more. So, please show me. Blessings!

    Rape & the Bible

    Seems the folks over at AToday have some mighty thin skins! I posted a link to the above review to their Facebook page article linking to Lindsey Painter's article. They have deleted it and banned me from posting on their Facebook page. Seems they can post articles assassinating the characters of Biblical persons, but they can't take any criticisms of what they are write!

    Gustave commented on the so-called "pillars of the faith." * There is no one correct answer to this issue as to the pillars of the faith. I generally define them as five (5) that were developed in the early days of this denomination. * Other SDAs who study our history agree on there being five, but do not totally agree with me as to what those five were. * Others expand beyond five and consider there to be more than five. One of the problems with this issue is that as I define the five, those five core teachings were not the basic core teachings of Christianity.

    I'm intimately aware that Ellen didn't formulate any SDA Doctrines - other individuals did. Ellen White's role, as she clearly articulated, was to define true or false doctrines. These "points of faith" or "Pillar" doctrines were (according to Ellen) established under the demonstration of the Holy Spirit THROUGH her "spiritual gift" charism. So, for the purpose of clarification as to what I'm forwarding - I'm not claiming or even loosely implying the SDA Church derived any of its pillar (AKA distinctive doctrines) from Ellen. I'm saying she claimed the charism of infallibly defining what doct

    May 4, 2021 The "Shall Nots" of John's Gospel “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) There are many wonderful promises to the believer listed in the gospel of John. Many of these promises are things that “shall” happen, but let us consider seven of these that teach of things that “shall not” happen to the believer whose trust is in Christ. Teaching of the indwelling Holy Spirit, Christ said, “Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst;

    In a post dated Sunday, May 2, 2021, Gustave has raised an interesting point. I am responding to it in this post. * Gustave asks about EGWs teaching as to the physical nature of God the Father. Then he quoted from Manuscript Release 760. It should be noted that Ellen White is not said by the SDA Chruch to have been without error in her beliefs. She did hold beliefs in regard to the nature of God that can be said to have been wrong. * I will suggest that it is important to give some thought to Manuscript Release # 760, which Gustave cited. That release consists of some 31 pag

    With all "due respect" it doesn't matter what "Ellen" taught. You have been informed a number of times about the correct way to use her writings, and how we do not derive any of our doctrines from her. So, obviously, this is another problem you have.
  21. I have to laugh because whenever a Republican is president everyone is claiming the gas prices low, and when a Democrat is president the prices are high!! As if a president has any control over gas prices!! Here's a link to show that that is not the case: Misleading Messages on Gasoline Prices https://www.factcheck.org/2020/10/misleading-messages-on-gasoline-prices/

    I thought you'd never ask. I've helping someone with disability the next few days but plan on having some material for your viewing this weekend. With all due respect IF I'm able to produce such statements do you believe YOU would than have a problem? Or is only I that would have a problem if Ellen did or didn't teach what I'm saying she did? If that's your contention would you mind my asking how you logically draw that conclusion? Thanks

    Where does she actually say that? Because if that statement above is your proof, than you have a problem Gustave!!

    Not sure where you are getting this to mean "one doctrine." It says "one faith." Huge difference in scripture, throughout.
