Yeah that is how I somehow concluded too, however do you think some conservative can express their opinions in those forums too? Do conservative SDA´s even read them?
Seventh day Adventist is bible-based more than any other church. That is why I'm an Adventist.
Sure we are Andrew but did you read the Link? I would guess if you had your answer would be different. These are the Words of Jesus to The SDA Church.
Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
No I didn't look at the link at first I took a peek later, but I still think that Adventists are the most bible based and that there are many who could know the truth of God's word and will know it experientially for themselves.
Yes, that is true Andrew but as you may understand the Text I just quoted in Rev. we will have no excuse for being self-satisfied.
Andrew, I use to be one of those people which proudly proclaimed, “we have the truth”. What you’re saying is relative to what you know and understand. You don’t know what you don’t know, until you know what you don’t know.
There are other groups who understand the Sabbath, and the state of the dead, but what outside of these things that are truly bible base that the church cling to that other churches may not? What are these truths that the SDA have, in case I missed something?
The Adventist Church has the way the truth and the life. Why? Because they have the truth, Why? Because they have the oracles of God why? Because it was raised up to finish the everlasting gospel commission, and go to the ends of the earth and So Jesus can come.
So, what is the everlasting gospel?
How one defines Everlasting Gospel according to Revelation 14?
I would define it in nutshell like this: "1. Birth of Savior, 2 His teachings, 3. His Death on the cross (This is the highlight), 4. Resurrection, 5. Ministry of Jesus Christ in the Heavenly Sanctuary 6. Second Coming...
If you ask what is is Everlasting gospel from typical Christian (let´s say evangelical).. They will answer to you that "Jesus died on the cross for us.." That is good and tru but Everlasting Gospel has to something more than that .. We don´t have only Death Savior -cause he could not help us when He is dead that is why we have Living Savior.. who can help us... Who is blotting our sins in Heavenly Sanctuary when we repent and confess our sins -- and He will come back to put end of our misery - what we call the history of the world -- Glorious Parousia! Hallelujah Amen!
Thank you for your honest summary of the everlasting gospel, but I would submit that it is none of these.
I’m sure you would agree, the everlasting gospel is as eternal as God, and even though Jesus was the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world, and his acts are unquestionable; but the everlasting gospel is not about Jesus and what he is doing, it is about Jesus message.
Here’s what the apostle Paul said to the Galatians:
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
There is no other gospel, there’s only the everlasting eternal gospel, and that is the gospel of Christ, not the gospel about Christ as you have expressed in this nutshell.
The gospel or good news is about God, it behooves us to come to a deeper understanding of the gospel of Jesus and of this angel.
…6And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come…
The apostle Pau said, if an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. Therefore, this angel must be preaching the same gospel the apostles taught; the gospel of Christ.
Young's Literal Translation, Luke 4:43
…and he said unto them -- 'Also to the other cities it behoveth me to proclaim good news of the reign of God, because for this I have been sent.
The gospel of Christ and the gospel of the apostle is the good news of the reign of God, and not those things you have mentioned. I don’t dismiss those things, but they are not the gospel.
