One can discover a disturbing phenomenon by taking a quick look at the online Bible sites that give us access to many different translations. One might think that a few modern translators were simply taking too many creative liberties, but in this article, I will show that they appear to have intentionally altered the Word of God with respect to the Sanctuary Doctrine.
Not long ago, a friend of mine was relating to me a sermon that he had just listened to where the preacher related a question that someone had asked him. The individual wanted to know why God would allow Satan to be loose after the millennium. In response, the pastor said half-heartedly, “if you can tell me why God let him loose the first time, I’ll tell you why He let him loose the second time.”
This is the story of a guy named Abram. Actually, this is your story…and my story. It’s everybody’s story. Be patient; read on and all be revealed.
With the world becoming more inundated with crime and gross injustice, it isn’t surprising that political issues dominate world headlines. The recent tragedy in Orlando, Florida has shown us that there is no security anywhere and that life can be taken at any moment. As we head deeper into the election year we are faced with more political decisions that will affect our temporal disposition.
Bible prophecy foretells that prior to the Second Advent, God’s Remnant Church will develop the character of Christ to full maturity before the watching universe.
If we have reached the level of sophistication in which parents can track their children's online movements, why would we be surprised that God has the ability to not only record our actions and our words, but more important: record the deepest, darkest, most private thoughts, intentions, and motivations of our hearts?
A fully grown lion has no rival. The leopard may be able to climb trees, and the cheetah may be able to run fast, but when it comes to raw power and fierceness, the lion was created superior. If a lion came running towards you, the last thing I would expect you to do is get into a fighting pose.
During these last days of earth’s history, the Scriptures indicate that we should expect to see another phenomenon of similar import to Christ’s first advent, but on a scale the world has never seen before: Christ will be born again.
In this third installment of our series on alleged contradictions in the writings of Ellen White, we will examine the popular claim of recent decades that Ellen White’s salvation theology evolved from a predominantly law-focused, even legalistic emphasis in her early years, to a more Christ-centered, grace-oriented message in her later ministry, particularly in the aftermath of the Minneapolis General Conference in 1888 and its emphasis on righteousness by faith.
When you share your testimony about what you’ve seen, heard, and experienced, both in your life before and after knowing Christ, you are a first-person witness. That’s why Christians call the act of telling their story “witnessing.” You can’t give your testimony if you haven’t witnessed Christ.
The word doesn’t want to come out of my mouth, but it’s a word my brain keeps playing with.
In the present article we will consider perhaps the most significant allegation of doctrinal contradiction relative to Ellen White’s prophetic ministry—the so-called “shut door” doctrine as taught and debated in the early history of the Advent movement.
