    DID JESUS COMPLETE OR DID NOT COMPLETE THE ATONEMENT ON THE CROSS?

    I have not yet had the time to view the video tha Gustave has posted. But, I will make a few comments; * Dr. Herbert Douglas, now dead, was a SDA theologian. * If my memory is correct, he did his doctoral work on Karl Barth. * As might be expected, both the Sacramento Central SDA church and Dr. Douglas are on the conservative side of Adventism. * I personally knew Dr. Douglas, at one time. * I am a firm and committed supporter of Questions on Doctrine. * I reject any idea that. the Atonement can only be understood in the context of The Great Controversy.

    BLESSINGS YOU HAVE IN CHRIST

    The Seventh-day Adventist denomination grew out of the failure of the prediction of William Miller that Christ would return in the Second Advent during an 1843 to 1844 time period. It formally organized in 1863. Those early leaders came from a variety of religious backgrounds. While Ellen White came from a Methodist background, James White and several others came from what has been called the Christian Connection. Other early leaders came from other denominations. The Christian Connection rejected the Trinitarian position on God that is generally held by Christians today. It took w

    Boy are you so full of hate and it shows with you lack of knowledge. So let's start with India. The Vedic Period refers to the time in history from approximately 1750-500 BCE, during which Indo-Aryans settled into northern India, bringing with them specific religious traditions. Most history of this period is derived from the Vedas, the oldest scriptures in the Hindu religion, which were composed by the Aryans in Sanskrit. Foreigners from the north are believed to have migrated to India and settled in the Indus Valley and Ganges Plain from 1800-1500 BCE. The most prominent of these g

    Trivia

    My brother and I would watch Shirley Temple movies all the time when we were kids. She was such a cutie!!!!!! And so talented--Goodness! That reminded me of all of the sweet little kid things that used to be on. I remember there was a cute little girl who would occasionally come on the Danny Kaye show. And Art Linkletter's House Party was funny too. (I always though Stephen Bohr looked kinda like Linkletter 😀 SHHH ) Anyway I have had a Shirley Temple earworm since you posted.

    I Had A Dream

    As I sit at my desk, today, February 1, 2021, at 3:15 AM (I have a sleep disorder that gets me up early in the morning.) I am reflecting on a dream that I had last night. As I reflect on it I believe that there is a message in that dream that it would be of value to share. First, I will digress a bit: In my construct of dreams, they are the product of an uninhibited brain that is unbridled by elements of rational thought. I have heard of people who seemingly have received a dream from God. I have never considered myself to have received such. I do not believe that my dream came from

    Every time you quote Scripture and assign a meaning different than someone else has you're exercising private interpretation. Unless of course you're arrogant enough to believe you have all the answers.

    Origin of Catholic Church

    Stinsonmarri: It is clear from your answer that you do not understand what the word "sacrament" actually means. It is a good word that is used by Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants and Seventh-day Adventists. It is true that Catholics and Protestants do not hold to the exact same meaning of that word as used in actual practice. But the fact that SDAs use it does not imply that they hold to the same belief about it as do Catholics. You are entitled to your beliefs. You do not have to hold the same exact beliefs that I hold, in order to post here. But, you clearly are out of the ba

    You started with Korah and then mention some ridiculous witcraft that made no sense. Korah and his followers; wanted oppose who YAHWEH had anointed and chosen. And YAHWEH spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment. Num 16:20, 21 If you took the time and read it YAHWEH that destroyed Korah and his followers. Here goes something else that makes no sense.

    See here is the problem talking about sacrament and apostolic succession that are not Biblical. This is Catholicism which is false. Sorry to say I do not agree with Pastor Green, because the Bible clearly states we should wash each other feets. HE riseth from supper, and laid aside HIS Garments; and took a towel, and girded HIMSELF. After that HE poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith HE was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto HIM, MASTER, dost thou wash my feet? YAHSHUA answered and said unto

    My conversion started in Poland in 1983. At that time I had a girlfriend but because I drank alcohol too often, smoked etc., she finally left me. So to be able to have a chance to be with her again I decided to change my life. But, after some hopeless attempts I finally realized that in my case it was impossible to overcome my weaknesses using my own will power as it was very weak. My father was a communist and atheist and my mother never told me anything about God. But I was so desperate that I thought I had nothing to lose if I tried to find empowerment in religion.

    DID JESUS COMPLETE OR DID NOT COMPLETE THE ATONEMENT ON THE CROSS?

    Slawek, has raised in his opening post an important issue. That issue is that the word atonement has been understood with one meaning by traditional Protestant Christianity and it has bee understood with a somewhat different meaning as used traditional by SDAs. This has confused people. In traditional, Protestant Christianity the word atonement has been used to mean that with the death and resurrection of Christ God accomplished everything that was needed to effect the salvation of all humans. IOW, nothing more was needed for humans to be saved and to spend an eternity with God.

    Slawek has posted a lot of information that is simply healthy living and that promotes good health. In addition, he has posted good information related to healing and recovery from illness. However, the advice that he has posted should never be considered to be a prescription for the clinical care of a person diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus.

Because of the close relationship between Ham's children and Shem's children and the Phoenician and Canaanite language many would think that the Assyrians were black but they were not. They just as stated adopted the Afrikan language. Many of the Afrikan people also became ruler at time of the kingdom of Shem's children, especially the Cushites. They are known to rule in Elam.

    Free Speech and Social Media Censorship: An Analysis

    The guarantee of Free Speech exists next to the religious freedom guarantees in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. These rights often intersect, as the ability to speak according to one’s conscience is innate to almost any conscientious belief system in existence. To apply restrictions to speech would also be applying restrictions to the exercise of religion.
