Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

So true.

I imagine that things are not much different than the days of the apostles for many Christians today. I hear quite a bit about home church groups developing in from different denominations.

You'd best know why that is.

Re: Revisiting OSAS

I just cherry-picked a few quotes to ponder over *NO WORKS REQUIRED "NOT BY WORKS of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,. . ." (Titus 3:5) ". . .by the righteousness of one, THE FREE GIFT came upon all men unto justification of life." (Romans 5:18) *BACKSLIDERS...

Re: Revisiting OSAS

Salvation is 100% performance based, because we are judged according to works done. The question is, will it be the works of Christ in us or our works? So there remains a rest for us, where we no longer work for our salvation, but rest in Christ. That gives us the motive and energy to speak and do ...

Re: Revisiting OSAS

-------------- I was watching a video by Dennis Priebe, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lA-r7XVFGs Which I would not generally recommend because it is addressed to SDA's who know the Bible and the issues at stake in the SDA church, and if you watched it without a knowledge of those things you woul...

Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

Seventh Day Adventists, as I have learned recently, like churches before them, such as the Lutherans and Baptists, accumulated knowledge of the different doctrines of truth in the Bible, by studying it in groups and receiving light by the ministry of those whom God had given special light. The refor...

Re: Revisiting OSAS

The blood of Christ, purchased all humanity from the ownership by sin, regardless of whether they know or believe. That purchase came with the following necessities and benefits. To be alive and have life. To have choices and free will To have a kernel of faith To have the protection and influence o...

Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

That's right Phil, the relationship is based on the promises of God, and not on our own. And God trusts us to love Him forever, what else could a relationship work by? Suspicion? no. We don't need to possess any eternal life in order to live forever, because it is freely and eternally given by Chris...

Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

Confession and repentance are part of the Christian path. Without communicating honestly to God, the relationship is at stake, like any lasting relationship requires honesty, and if one persists betraying that connection they will lose it altogether. Jesus said "If you continue in my word, you are m...

Re: A Scientific Theory on the given Freedom of God

Sciencigion, You have tied the incomprehensible aspects of the Creator into creation, which tells us that God is 'pervasive' in His presence and influence, so much so that free choice seems totally lost. I'd have to agree, because such a thought is true and quite horrendous, because we don't know W...

Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

What impresses me, Mallz, is the patience of the Mods and members of this forum, including yours, and I just wanted to add that in the past I had a fairly knuckled approach to subjects, and in this case about the law, no one's life or person is condemned because they don't understand or accept or ke...

Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

God has always wanted to make a covenant based on faith, as He did with Abram. Abram believed God so it was accounted as righteousness to him. That's the covenant that God wanted to have with Israel, but it failed, so far as the nation is concerned because they did not enter into His rest, because o...

Re: Seventh Day Adventists in the Bible

I think you need to read Hebrews again SH. I appreciate if you don't want to continue this, though, as long as you're not pushing your views as dogma.. Personally, I see you as worshiping Elohim how you like to worship Him. And that's fine as seen on Romans 14:5-6. I still see you trapping yourself...
