    Who's fooling who?

    What you share is NOT knowledge (as in facts). It is speculation at best; deception and a straw man at worst. Your past errors have ruined your reputation as a reliable expositor of God's Word. I don't post stuff to poke fun at you. I post stuff opposing your deceptions. I actually feel sorry for how deluded you appear to be. How sad that you hold your "knowledge" above that of anyone else here. I am suspicious of those who claim to have privileged information that no one else has ever seen or agrees with.

    Who's fooling who?

    Truth has never been called by another name. Why? Here is the story: Truth and lie came down the road together. They came to a lake, so truth decided to take a swim, so, he took off his clothes and begin swimming. Lie stole his clothes and wore them pretended to be the truth as he came into the city. But as the people thinking lie was the truth. Someone said look here comes truth, naked truth. That's Truth who has only one name and that is truth!

    Obituary--Ann Mygatt

    NOTE: I do not know Ann Mygatt. But, somehow I found this obituary interesting. I thought some of you might also find it interesting. Ann Mygatt (1942 - 2020) - Obituary Hi Everyone! If you are reading this, I've probably "left the building". I came into this world ready to make my mark on Sept 16, 1942, in Chappaqua, New York. My parents were Ruth & Elliot Bliss. Elliot took the train into New York every day where he made a living for himself as a bond trader on Wall Street. Ruth made a home for us in Chappaqua, until we all left the nes

    Reconsidering One of EGW's Key Prophecies

    Much of this is semantics. "Allah" is simply the Arabic word for "God". If you are an Arabic-speaking Christian, "Allah" is the word you would use for the Christian god. While Christians and Muslims have drastically different conceptions of God, what does it mean to worship the same god or a different god? Christians believe that the trinitarian God is a reality, and that the god described in the Islamic texts doesn't exist. If Christianity is true, either the Muslims worship the same God, but have a misconception of His character and nature, or they worship a non-existent entity (in whic

    Goulard: Churches are Absolutely Essential

    What if the church is a place where lives are transformed from the inside out, where people make decisions to follow Christ, and find not only find community, but actual real and powerful solutions to their failing marriage, their chronic mental illnesses, their abject loneliness, their anger and fear and judgment, and pain?

  9. One thing I have come to realize in recent discussions is that many people who read Ellen White treat her writings as if they were apocalyptic prophecy, and therefore not subject to the Bible’s principles for interpreting classical prophecy. There are visions she describes that remind one of Revelation 4-5 (heavenly journeys), but nothing like […] The post Sunday Laws and Bible Prophecy (14): Ellen White, A Classical Prophet appeared first on Jon Paulien's Blog.

    Reconsidering One of EGW's Key Prophecies

    Islam arose at a low point of the dark ages. Mohamad recognized the truth of worshiping the God of the Jews but saw Judaism as incomplete without Jesus, but did not know how much of Christianity was true and how much it was corrupted by the state of the church in his day and how much of that corruption may have been introduced into the Bible. The venerations of the saints was very large, and he appears to have tried to go back to what he was thinking might have been a basic belief and correct worship of the Judaio-Christian God. And of course he was a victim of his times as later Luther was of

    Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

    I actually experience self-actualization which Moslow believe only 10% of the population does. I believe one of the reason that so few do is because they are content with the love and belonging needs being met. They don't desire the higher needs. It makes me think that there is something even higher than self-actualization that we will not know about until we get to heaven.

    Phkrause: I hope you do not mind me explaining something to you. I know I a lot of Scholars and people who use THE SACRED NAMES, used Yeshua which is incorrect. The reason is FATHER'S NAME IS YAHWEH. We say it when we say hallelu-YAH which means praise YAH! THE SON Said that HE comes in HIS FATHER'S NAME. YAH is THE NAME OF THE FATHER and SHUA means to save. So the correct NAME IS YAHSHUA. Satan tries everything he can to get people to not say THEIR NAMES correctly. You yahwuah, yahuwah and more.

    To be clear on another point: HCH, I have never said that you are a lost person, contrary to what you have suggested about others. I do not consider you to be lost. You are simply wrong. I do sorrow over your implied belief that people who reject your doctrinal understanding are lost. Your view of God, as I understand you, is not what I believe God to be. Maybe it would be good for you to spend the Winter in a mountain cave, not sleeping, but in study of the basics of salvation as presented in the Bible.

    HCH said in the quote below: Let us be clear: I have never been amused by HCH's failures, which have been many. HCH's statement to the effect that I have been amused by his failures is false, just as are his many failed predictions of future events. So, what am I amused at: Simply the visual picture of HCH, acting like a black bear and sleeping off the winter in a mountain cave. come on folks. That is a scene, unrelated to his common failures that should bring a smile to your face.

    Thank you JoeMo for that update on 8th day. You are absolutely right that the Edict of Constantine had significant influence. On the other hand, Christians had been worshiping on Sunday for at least 300ish years by this time. And it did not prescribe worship on Sunday, but rather an official rest day when markets and public offices were closed. Farmers (which was pretty much everybody) could still farm, fishermen could still fish, etc. Not much different than today's "blue laws."

    Reconsidering One of EGW's Key Prophecies

    I agree. IMHO, all of our meager attempts to unravel unfulfilled prophecy is merely speculation. We will KNOW when prophecy is fulfilled because it will unfold right before our eyes. The church 2,000 years ago was unable to unravel the prophecies of Christ's first coming; so what makes us think that we are sufficiently "enlightened" to unravel the prophecies of His Second Coming. I firmly believe that He IS coming; and coming SOON (like the next 10 - 15 years); but I don't have a clue exactly how it will happen. Lots of plausible scenarios out there though!

    I also found it highly improbable that (a) attaining the "truth" would depend upon solving a cryptic puzzle hidden in the Bible; (b) such "truth" would be unavailable to the vast vast majority of humanity; and (c) not only was I born into Christianity, whose God is real, but I was born into a tiny sect with its own special prophet, who alone, unlike the rest of Christianity and the rest of humanity, possesses the secret "truth". EGW's "prophecies" about the papacy, the sunday law and things like that can only be understood in the context of the virulent anti-Catholic views and attitudes r

    Why We Can't Admit We Are Wrong

    The more I study this topic from a spiritual perspective, the more I come to believe this is the number one reason why people that are lost will be lost. Our pride doesn't let us admit our errors and much less correct them. This is why God hates pride so much. God longs to have a loving, trusting relationship with us based on faith but our pride will not let us see where we are wrong and repent of it.

    This type of an issue has happened before. In actual fact, there are often fund raising groups that raise funds for hospitals without clearing everything that they do with the hospital. SDA hospitals have been embarrassed in the past by such. It happens.

    So how is not believing that Michael in Daniel is Pence not listening to the 3rd Angels message? That does not save. We all know what the 3 angel's message are. We know what the mark is I don't know how salvation comes by whoever is pres. If christ is coming soon, then be ready--that's all it is Worship God, keep His Sabbath, And another thing--you sure seem awfully haughty. It's like since we aren't buying what you are peddling, we are not good Bible students. That's just stupid.

    The Basis for Religious Liberty

    Fundamentally religious liberty is right because it is an attribute of God, and a measure of the manner in which God relates to us. It is true that a broad basis of religious liberty provides us with the best opportunity to worship God as we believe we should and it provides us with the freedom to proclaim God’s message to others. Closely associated with the right of religious liberty must be the civil freedoms of the society in which we must live. Religious liberty is limited when the rights to earn a living is abridged. It is limited when the right to publish is circumscribed. Ou

    I agree that all of humanity must come to God through Jesus and the activity of the Holy Spirit. I do not understand your disagreement. How is it that my statement conflicts with this. My statement involves my belief that God does not force belief. Rather we have free choice. That free choice, I understand to be an attribute of God. I teach that in the final end, those who are lost will be those who made the choice not to spend eternity with God.

    Pope Francis consistently reaches out to Islam; and has proclaimed on several occasions that Muslims are our brothers because both Christians and Muslims worship the same God and are all descendants of father Abraham. I strongly disagree with that statement. Mark 3:25 tells us that a house divided against itself cannot stand. It makes no sense that the god of Islam (Allah) is also the God of Jews and Christians (Yahweh). So could Allah command His people to destroy the people of Yahweh? The Pope wants to see Christians and Muslims unite. That would be wonderful if we all united under the b

    A list of SDA offshoots

    When I was in High School (Academy for SDAs) a friend and I rode our bicycles from Wawona (in Yosemite National Park) to Modesto, California. We basically pushed our bikes up the road to get out of the valley and then spent a night sleeping in sleeping bags in a farmers field. As a result, we got our pictures in the Modesto Bee. The total distance we rode was about 110 to 120 miles. We arrived on the 2nd day.
