To---francis and Cluny it appears to me that you're both going about to establish your own righteousness by way of your denominations.
---mima on 12/30/10


What I have seen thus far, is too many people who have no idea what they believe. they know what others believe and do they are simply opposed to what others believe.

They have no beliefs of their own, all they have is disbelief, and unbelief about what others teach.

I really do not care what you believe, I just think you should know what you believe.

Amazing that some people know more about SDA, and read more SDA literature than thier own.

I myself in this blog am not interested in pointing out the flaws in others doctrine. I am just going to share what SDA believe, all shoudl do the same about their beleif system!
---FRANCIS on 12/30/10


It would be hard to state what denomination has the, "whole truth". You really need to look at the individual church, there are some churches that are no more than social clubs, and you have others that are legalistic. You have to look at the doctrine that is being taught - is it based on the Bible, (and is it in the correct context.)? You also have to be able to separate what is a local cultural more from what the Bible teaches.

Cluny //But the REAL CHURCH is ORTHODOXY.

Agree with you 100 percent, and that is why I attend the Orthodox Presbyterian church.

At least you have not said your church is UNREAL!
---leej on 12/30/10




The best denomination is no denomination. But even some of those are denominations. I went to a non-denom Bible church for 12 years. In reality they were Plymouth Brethren, which claims to be non-denom. Their mantra is "let scripture interpret scripture". The people in those churches also have huge theology libraries in their homes. They don't get hung up on stuff like pre-trib vs. post trib raptures...yada yada yada...

17. Spiritual Gifts and Ministries:
According to the Scriptures, these gifts include such ministries as faith, healing, prophecy, proclamation, teaching, administration, reconciliation, compassion, and self-sacrificing service and charity for the help and encouragement of people.

18. The Gift of Prophecy:
One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is prophecy. This gift is an identifying mark of the remnant church and was manifested in the ministry of Ellen. G. White . As the Lord's messenger, her writings ... also make clear that the Bible is the standard by which all teaching and experience must be tested.
---francis on 12/30/10


Not so at all. SPIROT OF PROPHECY refers to a four book series called " the spirit of rophecy"

Ellen White is not, nor is she called " the spirit of prophecy"

So when an adventist references matterial from one of the four books, they may say: " the spirit of propohecy says..." Not refeering to Ellen white, but rather what is written in the book.
Just as you may say Judges says, Genesis says, or hebrews says, rather than moses, paul says, samuel says, refeering to the book and not the writer, SDAs says spriit of prophecy says refereering to the books.

Now I have cleared that up.

---Cluny on 12/29/10


There is only one true church, The Church of The Lord Jesus, The Christ.
Everyone given to rely on, trust in, depend upon, and adhere to Him, and His teachings, are members of His Church as members of His body, and joint heirs of the kingdom of God. As a member of His Church, I will only boast of Him.
Denominations are simply divisions within the body, divided by dogmas. A religious system of doctrinal beliefs based on opinions that are considered settled and established by it's heads or founders, as well as those who advocate and conform to those various dogmas. There is only one Truth and 'Jesus' (YeHoVaH saves) is that Truth.
---Josef on 12/30/10




This statement by Clumy is correct.
---mima on 12/30/10


the only real denomination is the church that
1 believes that the father, Jesus, and the Spirit is God
2 believes that noone can be saved but through Jesus perfect sacrifice on the cross.
3 believes that they need to love God above all, and their neighbour as them self.
4 believes they are restored by the Spirit and now live according the Spirit of God.
for other references please ask God.
---andy3996 on 12/30/10


francis - I have several of those "Amazing Facts" pamphlets put out by your church.

While some are not too terribly bad, there are those that call ministers of other denominations as being servants of Satan.

I once taught a class at our church on cults and what they teach, and those Amazing Facts pamphlets probably convinced anybody that would consider becoming an Adventist that they would have to be crazy.

Adventism is much like the cow dump that pigs eat. While there is some good grain that has not been digested by the cow, most of the rest of it is not eatable at all.

\\Topics such as the Sabbath instead of the Holy Spirit being the seal of Christians, Investigative Judgment or the unique teaching of Ellen White are never mentioned\\

BTW--whenever SDA literature refers to the "Spirit of Prophecy," this does NOT mean the Holy Spirit.

Rather, it refers to the rantings of EGW.
---Cluny on 12/29/10


Warwick- Like I have read in several of the books, there are SDA ministers that are Christians, howbeit, will not preach or teach on any of the erroneous doctrines unique of Adventism.

Topics such as the Sabbath instead of the Holy Spirit being the seal of Christians, Investigative Judgment or the unique teaching of Ellen White are never mentioned.

It is my prayer that the Christian factor in the SDA will eventually win over and that the denomination will do like what the Worldwide Church of God did in rejecting the teachings of their founder.

\\It is also true that GOD'S true church is invisible\\

Nowhere does the Bible say this, Samuel.

EVERY description of the Church in the Bible is as something quite visible.
---Cluny on 12/29/10


First there are many denominations that teach a lot of Bible truths. Some as stated previously have decided the Bible is no longer true and instead just teach a feel good relgion as well as many nondenominational churches do.

It is also true that GOD'S true church is invisible made up of all believers from all denominations. So there are christians from many denominations that will meet and fellowship in heaven. Yet I believe the SDA is closest to having the most truth. Unfortunatly not all the members live up to that truth.

Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

SDA continue to do, and teach men to keep ALL the commandments. We do not accecpt the attempted change in the law of God made by the 4th beast.

Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms,
Daniel 7:25 And he shall think to change times and laws:

thus SDA shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Lee though not an Adventist it was an SDA doctor who was instrumental in my salvation.

I have preached in c40 SDA churches,and many other denominations. And have never heard any SDA say 10 Commandment observance is necessary for salvation. Those many I asked always said salvation was through faith in Christ alone! Most said that as Christians we should obey the 10 commandments. But not saved by them.

Many NonAdventists think we should only obey 9!

I have also noticed many who attack the SDA's do not believe that God created as per Genesis 1, preferring to believe antiGod ideas e.g. God used evolution to create. That heresy seems to be ok but holding to the 10 commandments post salvation seems to be a no no. Strange!

Luk 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay, but rather division:

Luk 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father, the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother, the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Seventh day Adventist do not despise the cross. We just do not believe that the cross givens the Christian a right to live in sin. The cross is a symbol of death that JESUS turns into a symbol of life and hope.

We also believe that Israel is the Church. When you listen to the Hymn Come O Israel. The New Testament teaches in Ephesians that we are Israel. Which was a common doctrine among all churches for centuries.

The SDA church has 28 fundamental beliefs we stand for something unlike many churches which have no statment of beliefs.

francis -//adventist carry the sign of God

Yes, the sign of God's wrath as they despise the Cross and simply fail to realize that they cannot be justified by works of the law.

Even a novice student of the Bible can read Exodus 31:17 that the sign of the Old Covenant given ONLY to Israel was the Sabbath.

Perhaps you have yet to read the New Testament? Suggest that you diminish your ignorance of the Bible by fellowshipping with a church that preaches the Bible.

Warwick//However from my long experience with SDA churches I have found they are different but not cultic.

Yes, such authors as Dr. Russell E. Kelly (Exposing Seventh Day Adventism), Greg Taylor (Discovering the New Covenant, why I am no longer a SDA), show in their writings that there are SDA pastors who truly preach the word of God but totally ignore the idiosyncrasies of Adventism. They have chosen not to sacrifice their retirement annuities over these issues.

I had been a Baptist for many years, and then a few years ago I took an on-line "test" in which the way I answered the questions would indicate what denomination beliefs I related to most. Turned out I believed more like the Quakers, so I studied a lot about them and had to agree. The main attraction about the Quakers, to me, is their humble approach to every part of life, equality-centered. They picture the old saying about God loving each equally: The ground is level at the foot of the cross.

All churches that follow the teachings, doctrines, ordinances and commands of God, as outlined in the bible, is the correct church. Our opinions and ideas does not matter. The denominations does not matter. If a church teaches salvation,baptism, justification and so forth. That's good. Praise, worship, teaching,preaching,fellowship and much prayer. If love is given and received freely, that is also a good sign.These are the keys to a good church.

9. The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ:
In Christ's life of perfect obedience to God's will. God provided the only means of atonement for human sin, so that those who by faith accept this atonement may have eternal life. This perfect atonement vindicates the righteousness of God's law and the graciousness of His character, for it both condemns our sin and provides for our forgiveness. The death of Christ is substitutionary and expiatory, reconciling and transforming. The resurrection of Christ proclaims God's triumph over the forces of evil, and for those who accept the atonement assures their final victory over sin and death. It declares the Lordship of Jesus Christ, before whom every knee in heaven and on earth will bow.

My question is this..what are you doing in your studies to be part of Gods truth? For me with my fellowship I have the truth as far as scriptures because I am only relying on the scriptures & not mans opinions. Only God can make the choice if I am truly following him, & I know I am.I donot rely on the baptist doctrine or the church of christ(which btw They do claim to be the only way as far as mainstream denominations) I rely on what God said & his word is final.

Conversely I have attended churches which claim to hold to sound doctrine, as outlined in their statement of belief. In reality, they no longer hold to these Biblical beliefs, having become liberal.

The Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, are the written Word of God, given by divine inspiration through holy men of God who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. In this Word, God has committed to man the knowledge necessary for salvation. The Holy Scriptures are the infallible revelation of His will. They are the standard of character, the test of experience, the authoritative revealer of doctrines, and the trustworthy record of God's acts in history. (2 Peter 1:20, 21, 2 Tim. 3:16, 17, Ps. 119:105, Prov. 30:5, 6, Isa. 8:20, John 17:17, 1 Thess. 2:13, Heb. 4:12.)

I agree partly with Warwick. I have never heard any protestant church say thay they have the exclusive truth, and are the only true church.

The RCC does claim to be the true Church, but it does not claim to be the only way to salvstion, although some individual RCs may think that.

As we can see here, the Orthodox churches claim to the the true and original church, but again those here don't claim exclusivity in salvation.

I can't say my denomination has the "truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth." There are basic docrines (eg. the trinity) that are accepted.

The unredeemed are bound for hell. Salvation is by Grace through faith, not works. But behavior should reflect one's faith.
Pre or mid trib are OK (post-trib is mostly unheard of). Communion is symbolic. The church can serve it how and when they wish. Arminian or Calvinist..no body cares. The denomination was originally Arminian but the doctrinal statement doesn't reflect this.
Baptism is for "born again" children or adults, is by immersion, but is not necessary for salvation or church membership (which only requires a profession of faith)
---Donna66 on 12/27/10


John from long experience I agree some denominations think they and they alone have the truth. Mostly these are cultic groups, not really Christian e.g. Jehovah's Witness. The Roman Catholic Church could also be included in this group as it teaches it is The true church. Some RC's who blog here have confirmed this, claiming salvation is only available to those who follow the RC doctrines.

Conversely I now attend the Christian and Missionary Alliance and have never in 10 years heard any member, or pastor or office bearer even suggest the Alliance alone has the truth. Also I have never heard exclusive claims made by members of other Protestant denominations.

There is no Denomination which holds total complete truth. There are errors in every one. No matter how perfect a member of any denomination thinks it is,they are prejudice as parents over a child,and can't judge honestly. People choose denominations which line up with their own beliefs and of course think that one has the truth,the truth they hold is a subjective truth peculiar to them and not objective to see the real truth. The one I belong to is no different than the rest in that aspict. What one must do is know the Bible and find one as close to Christs teaching as possible.

John: I suggest you read & study the Bible wherein you should come to understand there's but one Church (body of Christ). The Church is composed of "true" believers (followers of Jesus Christ) world-wide, denominational or otherwise. Everyone in (attending) the hundreds of thousands church houses worldwide aren't automatically in the Church of Jesus Christ. As the Bible clearly illustrates, there are tares (false, unregenerated) among the wheat (true, regenerated ~ BORN AGAIN).

Hope this helps your understanding. :)

LOL....LOL....LOL....Talk about a question trying to start an argument. This one takes the cake. The fact that John thinks all churches believe they are the only true church is really weird.
