Hope this helps Samraj R. It has been a blessing to me. The information where I found this was found at amazingfacts.org under storacles lessons.
In general and not saying you in particular what I see of the Charismatic evangelical world is the "spirit of ecumenism" much like what manifested with Tony Palmer and Copeland. You should be careful about saying I blaspheme. You have on occasion have seemed to do that "speaking" for the Lord Thing that could be construed as blaspheme. How do you reconcile how Holy Rollers are reaching across to grasp the hand of the Beast power in the "spirit of ecumenism"? I can almost guarantee I will not get an answer to that question.
Rabbit do you accept the writings of Paul? Do you understand everything he wrote and can you also explain it? Do you have questions for him?
BTW the writings of Paul is more difficult to understand than that of EGW.
I take things Paul wrote in context with the bible (in which some of Paul's writings are contained) and it's message of Jesus Christ as our guide along the path God wants. It's possible I may disagree with others interpretation of things Paul wrote but that does not mean I disagree with Paul since they are not Paul who is now dead.
BTW - Difficulty is relative and based on ability it's not exactly the same as confusing.

Making a conflicting statement with the bible by referring to people with different skin color as a different race as a method to advance "the truth" just seems like something she should have taken her own advice on and remained silent about.. Race based on color/ethnicity is a political/social concept not Biblical."
Reasoning Wrote: You said all of this before I even responded to you, so don't say it's in response to what I wrote... still You have no proof of any conflict from her statements. There is no problem here, where is it? (Not bitter or fanatical :)
Wrong. I said what you quoted in my first post about my view of Andrew's jib-jab terminology and with regards to the deceased EGW's comments about interracial marriage & children. My further responses were to the excuses YOU Reasoning, the living highlighted on her behalf. I thought that was pretty clear in my statement below.
The excuses you gave on the behalf of EGW who is dead are what I'm responding further to. You are alive, EGW is dead. I simply hope your highlights are not her final say on the matter for reasons I've already stated.
When you consistently overlook things said or only see what you want to see your responses come across as hyperbole / far fetch exaggeration. Seemingly to strengthen your unwillingness to accept the fact someone doesn't accept your highlights of the dead EGW as sufficient excuses on her behalf.
You may not accept the evidence I provided as a good enough reasons to prefer the bible for learning the message of Christ over all others including the deceased EGW, but evidence was provided. I'll just LINK to one my previous response and be content with God being the final judge of our decisions for the sake of letting this nonsense end.
To God be the Glory.
You said all of this before I even responded to you, so don't say it's in response to what I wrote. You still have no proof of any conflict from her statements. I know it may "seem" a certain way in your mind, but trust me, I'm Not bitter or fanatical :)
My first statement was responding to my view of jib-jab and confusing statements from someone who is dead and it is not the same as responding to someone who is alive like yourself.
Andrew and I didn't even get fully involved into what he thought was jib-jab, he did respond to me by mail and we will talk about it... But you came in talking about something is conflicting. Right there your wrong, there's nothing conflicting, you haven't proved anything conflicting. You say you have, but I haven't seen it.
Andrew may not have fully gotten into it in a way you prefer but he DID COMMENT about how he "can't always see EGW's writings in the light of the bible." And I responded with an example reflecting why I feel similar. For whatever reason you over look that, but that just further stresses why you come off as bitter and fanatical about someone not accepting your beliefs.
Reasoning you have free will and don't have to accept it, but I've already stated why I prefer the bible and what it teaches about the message of Jesus Christ over all others including the deceased EGW. I'm just gonna close by LINKING to my last response since most of what you said is redundant and full of twisted hyperbole.
I said you appear bitter. Whether or not you are I'll just take your word for it. When people constantly over look things and resort to hyperbole it does make it appear that way. Beyond that I have the same response as before. I've already stated my reasons and why I prefer the bible over EGW earlier which I'll link to again. I have no desire to repeat it any further after the erroneous far fetched comments you've made already.
To God be the Glory,
Nothing far fetched, you have a view on what she wrote that is not true. No more ,no less..
From your Malcom X comment, to over looking what I said about Jesus Christ dealing with the adulterous women situation and ignoring the fact that I was responding to Andrew's statement about how he "can't always see EGW's writings in the light of the bible." If it played out the same way all over again it still would appear that way to me without knowing the facts or your sincere words.
If you don't want to appear a certain way perhaps try responding exactly to what people say rather than ignoring or inserting hyperbole into the conversation which only seems to suit your narrative. A narrative which seems content to ignore the simple fact that I gave my reasons as to why "I" prefer the bible and it's message of Jesus Christ over the deceased EGW's. You don't have to accept them, but your opinion over what motivates me matters not.
To God be the Glory,
