    The attacks we make on authorities and powers..

    Our work is not to make a raid on the Government but to prepare a people to stand in the great day of the Lord. The fewer attacks we make on authorities and powers, the more work will we do for God... Do all in your power to reflect the light, but do not speak words that will irritate or provoke. EGW Ev173.

    Gustave: * The article that you cite was written by D. M. Canright, not Ellen White. * I fail to find anything that suggests that EGW revised and edited it prior to publication. The Review at that time was edited by her husband, not her. * I acknowledge that at that time early SDA leaders were not Trinitarian. * I acknowledge that in those early days, EGW was not Trinitarian. * I consider Canright to be responsible for the article, not EGW.

    I expected and understand disagreement with the article. To suggest Jesuist infiltration is to fail to understand Catholic views of Adventists. We are not important enough for Catholics to want to infiltrate us.

    Let Them Eat Cake

    My wife gets out of bed at a normal time for people. However, due to a clinical condition that I have, I typically get up several hours before she does and I then eat breakfast before she arises. Yesterday we filled every available space in our refrigerator. So, today when my wife arose she asked if I had been able to find the baked oatmeal that she had made. (NOTE: It was delicious.) I assured her that I had found it, in two pieces on a red paper plate. I had mashed one piece up, put milk on it and it was delicious. She started laughing as she informed me that the plate had two pieces of prune cake give us by our neighbor.

  8. "They" certainly came up with an effective treatment/vaccine for HIV/AIDS, polio, MMR, Hepatitis A/B and other viral illnesses. Flu normally does not kill 35 year old men without other health issues. HIV did. It took several years to come up with an effective HIV treatment. Science is doing fairly well against Covid, considering the time it has been around. Is it a perfect treatment? No but few things are.

  10. Numerous of my family members have battled Covid 19. All vaccinated, most boostered. Certainly wasnt over for them. The funeral for a friend following all the rules, good health, vaccination and boostered will be held on Fri. Somehow we will have to learn to co-exist with this virus/variants and have therapeutics to treat. I wonder what the reaction would be for repeated calls to have two vaccinations and boosters for other vacines. And then find out it is partially effective. They cannot eradicate the common flu that usually kills thousands every year

    People who ask for charity on the street are known as Schnorrers. Israel Zangwill wrote a book entitled The King of Schnorrers. It follows the experiences of a Schnorrer. Funniest book I've ever read, although some of Isaac Singers short stories in In My Father's Court are contenders.

    Philippians 2:6-7 explains that Jesus emptied Himself in taking on human flesh. It's docetism to say that He couldn't have made a despairing cry. The full quote of Ellen White is that Christ risked all by taking on mortal flesh because of he had succumbed to temptation and sinned, He would have forfeited salvation for the whole world.

    I was raised Catholic, and the Catholic veneration of Mary borders on idolatry. While I regard Catholics as Christians, their Marian devotion makes me uncomfortable. There were early church fathers who taught the doctrine of soul sleep, a doctrine which was ultimately rejected because it conflicted with the extrabiblical doctrine of praying to Mary and the saints. If Mary is going to have a special place in the church, it should begin with searching the writings of Ellen White and the Adventist pioneers, not ignoring them.

    The Adventist Pioneers were "heretics" according to the SDA Church today. "the anti-Trinitarianism that predominated among the early Adventists was not a momentary lapse in doctrinal understanding, a lapse that Ellen White could easily correct with the stroke of a pen, but a heresy that has lasted for generations. Many children of the Adventist Movement, as Seventh-day Adventists, descended into the grave six, seven, and eight decades later believing that the Son and Holy Spirit are lesser beings."

    Are Rock & Jazz Music Forbidden?

    Dylan's "Slow Train" and "Saved" albums are gospel music in a rock genre. I saw him in concert during his Slow Train era. After he was finished playing, a large number [~2000?] of people in the audience went forward as if they were responding to an altar call at an evangelistic meeting. I might also mention the music of Blind Gary Davis, an ordained Baptist minister. His song "Death Hath No Mercy" gets right down into the bones of some people, such as myself. Even the Rolling Stones cut a gospel song on "Exile on Main Street." It's called "Shine a Light."

    Are Rock & Jazz Music Forbidden?

    Jazz as a form of music has developed over a period of 100+ years. In its present form it has many styles of music. The result is that some "experts" define the word in different ways. From this perspective, some forms of jazz music may be played in SDA congregations and performed by SDA choirs. In addition, Seventh-day Adventists worship in many nations of this world. In some countries, the typical music found in a SDA congregation may be considered to be a form of jazz by people in other places. My personal position is: God asks us to consider our personal relationship with God and God does not ask us to pass judgment on the fine points of how another person worships. The basic points may be found in Scripture. We do not have animal sacrifices today. But, Scripture leaves a lot up to the individual congregations to decide.

    With Jesus in His Sanctuary

    With Jesus in His Sanctuary Dr Leslie Hardinge Matt.13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. I believe the desert tabernacle to be a parable of the plan of salvation. It was one large physical representation of God's love and mercy shown to the people of Israel. I am also of the opinion that God does not waste words or create huge projects without meaning behind them. It was a delight for me to take the book "With Jesus in His Sanctuary" by Dr. Leslie Haringe and read it as part of my own personal study to understand the Sanctuary. I was not disappointed in my study of this book. I would have to say it was one of the best books of the religious genre that I have ever read. It seem that in every detail of the sanctuary from the construction to the the various services was described in detail and Dr. Hardinge was able to find Jesus in nearly every part of the sanctuary. Matt.13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. I have found these verses in Matthew from Jesus to be very interesting verses. In verse 10 and 11 Jesus notes that some people are not given understanding. But in verse 17 He discusses how the prophets and the righteous would desire to understand what they read in Scripture. We, in these current times, are blessed immensely to have the understanding that has been given to us thru the studies of the early pioneers of the church and continuing to recent authors such as Dr. Hardinge. Dr. Hardinge continued his study of the sanctuary message and how it is symbolic of even beyond this age into the age to come and the final judgements of all people and the evil angels and Satan. After this beautiful discussion of how Jesus was symbolized throughout the desert sanctuary and its services, he had one very chilling comment to make regarding those who are not saved especially those we care about and wonder why God didn't save them. "Convinced, but unrepentant still, Satan rouses himself and tries to rally his forces for one last desperate attack on the city. May I share with you what I further imagine? I look over the battlements of the city and there I see my best friend, about whose fate I had been concerned. He is actually preparing to claw down the jasper walls with his fingernails and pull Christ from His throne! He is doing this after all he has seen! And in my ignorance of his true character I had wondered whether a view of Jesus would change his mind! Now he has had that view and still wants to destroy Him. My questions regarding the justice of his fate are gone. He has seen what every intelligent being in the universe has seen, evidence, irrefutable evidence, that, throughout the great controversy, God is good and God is just and God is right and God is kind, and yet he persists in his determination to destroy Him! What can God do for such a one as he?" I highly recommend this book to everyone. Cleary a five star book on Goodreads!
