I see so many people that become very hard to live with when they start reading Ellen White's writings. Some become horrible to live around and seem to lose any joy they previously had. They actually become miserable. One who helped lead me to Christ actually came to the point where he said he could no longer even talk to me because I was unclean. It seems like something clicks in their heads and they no longer know how to enjoy fellowship. The last thing he ever said to me was... If you are going to be one of God's chosen, you have to be perfect...
Anyways, God is good...
Your Spirit is very judgmental. Have you ever considered that Christian Character does not include a judgemental nature. Perhaps you need to stop defining Adventist and begin to understand your relationship with Christ.
Are you not judging me brother?
she never claimed to be prophet, Jason......so why do you call her one?
Do you feel she passes the tests of a true prophet? There were many others who clamed to be prophets at the time she started. Is there just one prophet for the end time, or will there be others, Of course now our " prophet" is no longer living. What happens now?
The person of the prophet is not that important but what he/she wrote is.
So did she claim it?
@Jason - "..... Progressive Adventists are not real SDAs ..."
How do you come to that conclusion Jason ?
Compare the two and see whether the so called 'progressive' is real.
Progressives typically disagree with one or more of the church's basic beliefs such as the Sabbath or "distinctive" beliefs such as the investigative judgment, the remnant, a future global Sunday-law, or a use of Ellen G. White's writings. They also tend to question some of the denomination's 28 fundamental beliefs: with debate arising on the nature of the Trinity, perpetuity of the Law of God, the Nature of Christ, the Gift of Prophecy, Creation or observance of the seventh-day Sabbath." It also has many similarities with the ecumenical emerging church movement which those involved in, mostly agree on is their disillusionment with the organized and institutional church.[
I regard myself as a progressive Adventist Christian and I have absolutely no issue with beliefs 1-8 neither do I have any issue with the other 20. Other progressives that I know of also have the same regard.
so in what sense do you consider yourself a Progressive Adventist?
Can you prove a global
Sunday-law from the bible?
