Is This SDA Church

Could this verse in Galatians 1:8" But 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." Possibly be speaking to the SDA church?

One needs to study & understand the law as found in the Scripture first in order to realize the need for grace. If you attempt to live by the law,you will always fail. It is only when one learns to live in faith in the power of the Holy Spirit will one be totally free of the sin that so often snares & enslaves us.
---lee1538 on 11/26/07


jana - you need to study the Bible and see that anyone trying to be justified by the law is fallen from grace.
Salvation is by the grace of God not the law. Otherwise Jesus died in vain.
Try reading the Pauline letters.

Lee 11/16/07 SDAs legalist..Amen..we stick with the law who is Christ the Word, the Law, the Bible John 1:14/ Yes, we follow Christ and not man as you do Lee..SDA promote law and not gospel..the Law is the gospel message..it is Christ hIMSELF lee: His law a transcript of His holy character we all need to be conformed to to be Christlike..That is why the Cer.Laws were done away for it does not cleans us from spiritual sin but Christ does 4He is law,or didnt you know Lee..
---jana on 11/26/07


Since Adventists hold that one must observe the ten commandments, esp. the Sabbath commandment, in order to be saved, that alone says that they believe salvation is not a gift one receives by faith alone in Christ alone. To them, Eph. 2:8-10 has to be re-interpreted and nullified to support their salvation by works doctrines.
---lee1538 on 11/25/07




Actually, a legalist is one who tries to earn salvation by keeping the law. One is saved by faith, period.
---djconklin on 11/21/07
Frankly, there are some of us that would rather stick to the dictionary's definition of a legalist as one who has an inordinate 'adherence to letter of law: strict adherence to a literal interpretation of a law, rule, or religious or moral code'

Of course, that would certainly fit the description of most devout Adventist.
---lee1538 on 11/25/07


Lee, it is the Bible/Jesus that command all, not only others to obey all His Laws of Love the 10 commandments..SDAs are obedient to all n they didnt insist on others to do so but Christ Himself who is the Law..how could He be done away when it was Christ Himself that caused the Cer.Laws to be done away so He could become the Sacrificial Lamb of God?And what an awesome S.Lamb He was and is.

---djconklin on 11/21/07
Attempting to be saved by keeping the Law only is wrong
Attempting to be saved by faith only and not being obedient is wrong "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead being alone" James 2:17
Faith combined with works is correct: "..by works a man is justified, and not by faith only" James 2:24

---djconklin on 11/21/07


jana - yes I totally agree with you that if you proclaim the name of Christ you should obey all His commands that you receive from Him.

Where we differ is that Adventists are insistent upon others obeying commands that are not applicable to the church as some are optional or obsolete. And such are the Sabbath commandment & dietary laws, as you clearly cannot find them in the New Covenant dispensation.

Mat22:37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. :38 This is the first and great commandment.

:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
---Andrea on 11/16/07


Jana - a legalists by definition is someone that has an inordinate 'adherence to letter of law: strict adherence to a literal interpretation of a law, rule, or religious or moral code' and that fits most Adventists in that they promote law other than the gospel message of salvation by grace alone thru faith in Christ alone, not of works. Eph. 2:8-10

SeventhSeal - *The Aposltes Kept the Commandmnets of God and the Faith of Jesus.The SDA Church does the same.*

And that is because Adventists being legalists, use only the OT for their doctrinal beliefs believing one actually become Jewish at conversion.

---TS on 11/8/07


pammy - Hebr. 10: 1 For since the law has but a shadow of good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by same sacrifices continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.

The law here has no distinction as to types.

While it immediately speaks of sacrifices, the law cannot refers only to sacrifices since verse 10:16 that God writes the law onto believers hearts would make no sense.

Interpreting the verse in CONTEXT is important.
---Lee on 11/8/07


Hi Alan of UK, to answer your question, the Bible Sabbath is observed from sundown to sundown on the 7th day where you are. Sundown Friday the 6th day, to sundown Saturday, the 7th day. There is nothing in the Bible to indicate it should be done any other way. Bible days per Genesis start with the dark part of the day first, then the light part. So the day starts at sundown.

NO true servant working for the real God would ever say anything like this.

It is all a matter of keeping our eyes focused on Jesus, 'the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God, ever making intercession for us. Hebrews 12:2, 7:25.
---Lee on 11/2/07


Okay first and foremost By Grace through faith is how we are saved and no man can ever live good enough to enter heaven by the law except Jesus who was not bound to it but defeated the law, he died that we might be free from the law. Also we are born in SIN because of Adam and therefore all children (save Jesus) are born in sin so therefore being born in this world already means you broke the law.

Many assume no NEED to keep God's law bc Christ "fulfilled" it. But these people fundamentally MISUNDERTANDS Christ's clear words. The word "FULFILL" (MATT5:17)in this passage means "to make full, to fill to the full"
and that is EXACTLY WHAT JESUS DID. He showed their spiritual intent, explaining that unjustified anger equates with murder (vs 21-22), and lust is mental and emotional adultery (vs 27-28).Jesus expanded the intent of the 10C.

2)Jesus EXPECT MUCH MORE from us than lip service. He demands that WE DO as the Father HAS COMMANDED Jesus said, "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, BUT HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY Father in heaven" (Matt7:21). Jesus plainly taught OBIDIENCE TO GOD LAW.

There is simply no excuse for believing that Jesus came to abolish any commandments of God.

One who REPENTS is one who simply begins keeping the laws of God, because sin is the breaking of those laws (1 JN 3:4).

Adventism has yet to get out of the Old Test and see what Jesus had to say in the New.
-lee 10/26/07
The New Testament is mainly God's people quoting the Old Testament,to make their points. For example, Hebrews 8:8-13 (the verses you love to quote about the Old Covenant being done away with) are a direct quote of Jeremiah 31: 31 thru 34, made by a man who observed all 10 commandments and extoled the holiness of God's law. Obviously Paul quoting Jeremiah in Hebrews did not mean what you say it does.
---Gina7 on 10/27/07


Lee, by making the statements that I have that loving God with all your heart and soul enables you to keep the 1st four commandments (those pertaining to God) and by loving your neighbor as yourself, will enable you to keep the last 6 (those pertaining to neighbor) I thought I WAS getting out of the NT what Jesus had to say. I believe it is you who are missing the point of Matthew 22:36-40 by saying it has nothing to do with the 10 commandments.

Jesus was quoting two Old Testament texts. They are the principle behind the 10C that makes them moral laws. If you aren't obeying the mere words of the 10C you are definitely not obeying the spirit of the law. If you disobey even one, you are disobeying all of them.

*The SDA church only keeps the 10 Commandments. That is base and unloving.*
