ruben how bout deut. was that just for that book? what bout Prov 30:5-6 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
---r.w on 8/6/06

Rueben--I used this Scripture (although there are others) because it was more detailed. Many cults make up their own end-time scenarios, based on the Book of Revelation and the teachings of their leaders. I also quoted Prv 30:6. And Deut. 12:32 says "What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it"
---Donna2277 on 7/28/06

Donna-( the Bible as sole authority, " if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take shall take away his part out of the book of life...(Rev 22:18-19)) This verse is talking about adding and subtracting what was written down, a big AMEN to that, but how you get sole authority is beyond me. The author is talking about the book of revelation and not about the bible.
---Ruben on 7/28/06


Why is it you persist in trying to shackle the rest of us into a cult that insists on THINGS LONG-PROVEN WRONG, such as the necessity of the Sabbath, and absolute adherence to the 10Cs as a way to get into heaven (or maintain heaven)?

Because the founder of the cult is skewed, then what she says can not be trusted, no matter how much "patchwork Scripture text proofing" you do.

Context in ALL of them disproves your wrong allegations.
---John_T on 7/28/06

Maybe a reason Christians take the Bible as sole authority, are verses that warn:
"..the words of the prohecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take shall take away his part out of the book of life...(Rev 22:18-19)

The consequences are dire.

"Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar" Pr. 30:6
---Donna2277 on 7/27/06

I base my faith on the Word of God the Bible. Romans 10:17 Ephesians 6:17 Hebrews 4:12, 11:3 1Peter 1:23 Revelation 19:13. I don't base my faith on the Koran, the book of Mormon, the Watch Tower or any other so called books of faith.

Wow Dan. Sounds like the Mormons have some really bad doctrine. Maybe Robert or one of the others will attempt to explain with Biblical scripture if these are not correct.
---Bubba on 7/19/06

Mormonism was founded as an old sex cult with men seeking multiple wives. Even the founder Joe Smith had some 40 wives, Brigham Young had 18.

Using the Scripture as a standard, then none of the Mormon leaders qualified for the office of deacon or elder - 1Timothy and Titus, so why listen to them or their successors?

More Mormonism false doctrine:
God had sexual relations with Mary to make the body of Jesus (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 4, p. 218, 1857; Vol. 8, p. 115)
Good works are necessary for salvation (Articles of Faith, p. 92).
There is no salvation without accepting Joseph Smith as a prophet of God (Doctrines of Salvation, Vol. 1, p. 188).

More Mormonism false doctrine: from Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine
If it had not been for Joseph Smith and the restoration, there would be no salvation. There is no salvation [the context is the full gospel including exaltation to Godhood] outside the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints p. 670
The true gospel was lost from the earth. Mormonism is its restoration p. 635
---dan on 7/18/06

More Mormonism false doctrine: from Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine God is married to his goddess wife and has spirit children (p. 516). The first spirit to be born in heaven was Jesus (p. 129) Jesus and Satan are spirit brothers and we were all born as siblings in heaven to them both (p.163)
---dan on 7/18/06

More Mormonism phony baloney: "I could refer you to plenty of instances where men have been righteously slain, in order to atone for their sins ... This is loving our neighbor as ourselves, if he needs help, help him, and if he wants salvation and it is necessary to spill his blood on the earth in order that he may be saved, spill it."

Are you saying that mormons believe Jesus the Son, God the father and God the Holy Spirit are all the same? That these are the three figures within the God-head? That there is no difference among these three because they are all one?

2. Even if that is not the case, Abraham, Lazarus and a rich man are all very much alive and alert while their bodies are sleeping in the grave. The rich man was even in torment so there was more than simple consciousness too. They could speak, there was water, flame, a gulf, comfort, etc. No soul sleep present.

Geoff, It doesnt say if the Lazarus in Luke 16 and John 11 are the same or not... both were sick and died. The rich man asked that Lazarus be sent to his fathers house, he did not ask for Lazarus to be raised from the dead... did he already know Lazarus was going to be ressurected? Though Lazarus rose from the dead, they will not be persuaded so Abraham told him no. cont.

For Robert:

"God sits enthroned in yonder heavens as an exalted man. He became God the same way all the other Gods before him." -Joseph Smith-Journal of Discourses, Vol.6, p 1-7

If man can become God and God was once a man, and all other Gods before him were first men, who created the first man to become God?

In other words, which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Isaiah 43:10 "Before me there was no god formed, neither shall there be after me."
---John_T on 7/18/06

I don't know about the Mormons. A lot of groups believe in the "divinity" of Jesus. But do they accept Him as EQUAL with God? Some, if you look into it, actually believe that Jesus was sort of a lesser the Vice Pres. of the Universe or God Jr. (my words).
---Donna2277 on 7/18/06

Robert, it was I, not Eric who said, " Is it not inconsistent to reject the original sources, but accept the plagerist?" the context of the remark was SDA stuff.

Mormons place their faith in non-extant plates, written in a non-extant language, found in a hill where 10,000 non-extant human warriors are buried.

There are no archeological evidences for the Lamanites; the American Indians are Mongoloid, not Jewish. Smithsonian says that, but NOT BoM

Jesus is the angel Michael; Christians will have to suffer through the tribulation; Lucifer is the brother of Jesus; Soul Sleep; God does not chastize his own because he is love and nothing else; spiritual gifts being used today;

#1 FALSE Michael; is ADAM the first man.
#2 TRUE everyone suffers in life "the tribulation????
#3 Death biblically = SLEEP.
#4 FALSE - God chastizes those he loves.
#5 TRUE - spiritual gifts are eternally tied to faith. Thus they exist alongside faith

Mormons do NOT deny the divinity of Jesus Christ. Your anti-Mormon study manual is wrong.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell,....

Bible Study is more than just knowing a scripture brethren. It must be understood in context, i.e. "...every word that proceedeth out of the mouth if God." Matt 4:4.

---Robert on 7/18/06

Lee, you're just going to have to get over it. The angel argument is mute because whether Jesus was perceived as an angel or not, SDAs don't believe He was created. SDAs believe Jesus is God the Son. Jesus created the angels. He is the sole author of our salvation.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Eric; you said,

Is it not inconsistent to reject the original sources, but accept the plagerist?

Neither is it consistent to reject Books mentioned in the Bible but not present and accept extrabiblical philosophies like the Nicene Creed.

4th century Catholic heresy.

God made man in his own image and likeness.
Thus GOD LOOKS LIKE US. It is inconsistent to say otherwise.
---Robert on 7/18/06

Tofurabby, surely you don't think the poor beggar, full of sores, laying at the rich man's gate in Luke 16 is Jesus' friend, the brother of Mary & Martha in John 11. The two persons don't match. All the people with the same or similar name in the Bible are not necessarily the same person. Besides, if they are the same, the two stories don't match because the poor man was not resurrected to go warn the rich man's family.
---Geoff on 7/18/06

They were also from different status; Mary & Martha's brother was no bum whereas the beggar wouldn't have had such a lavish burial with mourners, a personal tomb or nice grave clothes... So are you trying to bring a parable to life or did Lazarus have three deaths? How cruel to snatch someone out of heaven to die twice more.
---Geoff on 7/18/06

All creation came in spirit first - then physically. Thus saith the Word,

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

(Old Testament | Genesis 2:4 - 5)

Lucifer, who fell from grace, was a "son of the morning" and he was a spirit created by the Father of all spirits, before the creation of the earth. Although he opposed God and was cast down, he cannot be removed from his brotherhood with all the spirits even the Spirit Jehovah.

Jesus, like all others is a Son of the Father, and thus a brother of all. (We are co-heirs, Lucifer sold his estate by rebelling)

Truth is stranger than fiction.
---Robert on 7/18/06

John T ... I think you misrtad Ezxucah. If you look carefully at the grammar, what he is actually saying is "Any doctrine is false unless it comes from Jesus, or from the apostles, including Paul"
That means that apostles teaching is true, and Paul is one of the apostles.
And all that is standard Christian belief.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/18/06

One false doctrine that we encounter is the belief that Jesus is the brother of Lucifer (Satan). I cannot recall where I read it but did not the early SDA including Ellen White believe just that? I need to go back and research the subject to be sure. But clearly accordingly then since Satan was an archangel, then that would also make Jesus one - burf!
---lee on 7/18/06


I search with BOTH my heart and head for truth.

Since God is not schizophrenic, He is consistent, the SDAs are not.

They reject creeds, accepted by 99.9% or so of Christians.

They reject writings of learned men, and Early church Fathers in order to pin hopes on the writings of a woman not learned in Scripture languages, and who plagerized many things.

Is it not inconsistent to reject the original sources, but accept the plagerist?

Exzucuh: I bet your NT looks like someone made paper dolls from it.

"Any doctrines [coming from]Jesus or the apostles, Paul included is false doctrine"

Your statement cuts out Matthew, Mark, Luke, Acts, Hebrews, James, and Jude. WOW!

For your information Paul WAS an Apostle.

Do you now want to change your silly statement?

Exzuch, Does that mean you don't believe any of the OT or the book of Revelation? I think you are the one with the false doctrine.

Thanks for the warning John_T. I have no plans to have a bible study with him... Its like I said... I could show a scripture reference as an answer to a question 100 times and he would still ask me to show where it says it in scripture 101 times. Not worth my time.

Unless you are fully grounded in Scripture, and can see deceptions such as the SDAs (and Mormons) weave to delude the innocent, STAY AWAY from the SDAs.

They will cobble 3-4 unrelated Scriptures together to create something the Bible never says, and the end is that you will become sucked into and shackled to a legalistic, guilt-driven cult
---John_T on 7/13/06

Any doctrines that have come forth out of any person other than Jesus or the apostles, Paul included is false doctrine, study the scriptures they are our doctrine. It is the Mind of man that twists the Scripture to make an Idol he can worship and another way to God.

---Geoff on 7/13/06

Creamcup, you may think differently if you did a more indepth study of all the Bible says on the subject of Michael the Archangel and Jesus. Rev 12:7; Dan 10:5-21, 12:1; Gen 16:7-13 (who's this being in v13?); likewise Gen 22:11-12, 15-18; also Gen 31:11-13; even Acts 7:30-32. May I share a few more with you?
---Geoff on 7/13/06

I think of false doctrines as being lies or false interpretation of scripture. Example: Jesus is Michael the archangel. That is not true. An archangel is a kind of angel. Lucifer (Satan,devil) was an angel who rebelled against God. Isaiah 14:12-15, Luke 10:18

There is a difference between the archangel Michael and the other angels, but they are angels. It is outrageous to say Jesus is an archangel. Jesus is not and never was Michael the archangel. Jesus is the Son of God.

Ps. The bible does use sleep as a word for death because the physical body is not finished with yet. But the soul does not sleep with it. You mentioned Lazarus, well that is a prime example. There is also a description of his stay in paradise while his body slept.
---tofurabby on 7/12/06

Geoff you are asking me for a full blown bible study. Kind of hard to post in 85 characters. Besides, I would bet that you know all the scripture already, it seems like you've polished up the spin and it is hardly worth repeating. It's like trying to debate politics with a liberal. I could quote scripture 100 times and you would ask where it is written in scripture 101.
---tofurabby on 7/12/06

Tofurabby, I was asking you for scripture supporting that Christians will not go through the tribulation & that death is not referred to as a sleep. On the contrary, Jesus said, "Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep" Jn 11:11-14. You're not off the hook so easily. The pretrib error, as Eric said, teaches a second chance when the Bible says "now is the day of salvation." 2 Cor 6:2
---Geoff on 7/12/06

Tofurabby, where do you get Michael the Archangel's rank in relationship to satan? Text please. Don't you see the difference one little prefix can make on a word? There is a big difference between an angel and Michael the Archangel as there is a big difference between Christ and antichrist. The Watch Tower Society knows the significance of a tiny word. Their false version of John 1:1-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.

Geoff, Michael is an angel with higher rank than the others. Dont say he is not an angel. (head angel over the other angels but had lower rank than Satan who was the original head angel)

As for this: "Please give texts for #2 (Christians & the trib) & #4 (soul sleep)"
I can't give you scripture supporting these because they do not exist. They are pretend doctrines made up by man, not biblical.
---tofurabby on 7/11/06

Tofurabby, those may be false as far as you are concerned, but as far as the Bible is concerned preaching another Jesus is false (i.e. teaching that Jesus is not divine) 2 Cor 11:3-4. There're other falsehoods like teaching the 10 Commandments were nailed to the cross or that Jesus broke the law. Jesus is NOT an angel, but Jesus is Michael the archangel (head over the angels). Of your list of 7, two others have no biblical support. Please give texts for #2 (Christians & the trib) & #4 (soul sleep)

John T The gospels speak of the disciples asking Jesus to 'send away the crowd to buy their own food'. One account mentions 100 penniesworth of bread another 200, but it doesn't actually state that they had that money. It sounds as if they are saying "how can we possibly provide for all these people?"
