THANK YOU JAMES, AS ALWAYS, WELL SAID. SOME IN THE SDA PRACTICE IDOLATRY OF THE SABBATH DAY. SAME ERROR WAS MADE BY THE JEWS. AND TO POINT OUT WHAT JAMES SAID, NOTHING WRONG TO ATTEND CHURCH SERVICES ON SATURDAYS, IN HONOR TO GOD AND AS A MEMORIAL TO HIS CREATION, BUT TO THINK THAT IT IS A CONDITION OF SALVATION IS ERROR.
At this present time, the Sabbath is not a condition of salvation that is true. But we do not keep the Sabbath to be saved, do we?
Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
We Keep the Sabbath as a sign to God that we respect and fear Him and show our loyalty to Him in keeping the day that God commanded us to Keep Holy. God made it Holy we should keep it Holy. Did God make any other day Holy?
ITS STILL 3 GODS IN ONE;
That reminds me of the old Certs commercial.
Chhheeeaa, Chheeeaa (slapping sound effect twice) Certs is a breath mint and a candy mint.
Chheeaa, Chheeaa, Chheeaa; Three, Three, Three Gods In One. That was an old Unitarian joke.
The SDA doctrine does not teach 3 gods in 1.
I think the belief is one God in three persons, not three gods in one person.
From your response you obviously do not believe that there are three persons in the Godhead, so I suppose you will have a problem with any definition that incorporates three distinct persons. The SDA position (which is the subject of this thread) can be summed up this way:
"The Father is all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and is invisible to mortal sight.
The Son is all the fullness of the Godhead manifested. The Word of God declares Him to be “the express image of His person.” “God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Here is shown the personality of the Father.
The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven, is the Spirit in all the fullness of the Godhead, making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Saviour. There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ."
