Francis- it is dishonest how trinitarians try to link SDA's with Jehovah's Witnesses over the 'Michael' issue when trinitarians MarkV and christan have more in common with SDA's than they would care to admit.

Of course the fundamental difference is that JW's believe Michael is a created being. In fact and this is where we part in understanding is that all angels are created beings- including Michael the archangel.

If you believe angels are uncreated, then by definition you have an equal to Almighty God, who alone is uncreated. How many uncreated angels are there? Following this line of reasoning is another form of polytheism.

Francis- Do you believe both the Almighty God (YHWH) and Michael the archangel to be uncreated?
---David8318 on 7/22/13


'I do not believe that the SDA's believe in the trinity'- MarkV.

That depends on your definition of 'trinity'. As trinity is not a Bible word, one persons trinity is different to another. But fundamentally, you and SDA's both agree Jesus Christ is God. You are in agreement with Ellen White that Christ is creator and Almighty God.

From SDA statement of faith, 'There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons... God the eternal Son became incarnate in Jesus Christ. Through Him all things were created.'

Sounds very much like the rhetoric you normally dispense. MarkV- you have been duped into the same corrupt belief system as Ellen G. White.
---David8318 on 7/22/13


David, I do not believe that the SDA's believe in the trinity.
---Mark_V. on 7/22/13
That is because do not know angel mean. You believe that all angels are created being

But the bible disagrees with you, and not just on this, on many other issues also

Galatians 4:14 but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

Malachi 3:1 and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

WHo do you think this messenger is: he is Jesus, the Angel ( messenger) of God

\\ David, I do not believe that the SDA's believe in the trinity. If they did they would not believe Jesus is an Archangel. They would believe that Jesus is God...//

Elder- why do you stop at verse 14?

Trying reading all the way to verse 18.

'No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.' (Jo.1:18- KJV)

Yes, the Word became flesh, I agree. But the Word was not God... unless you want to contradict what John said at verse 18. The Word was 'the only begotten Son', Jesus Christ. John never describes Jesus Christ as Almighty God or Creator as you suppose. This is your special pleading, an emotional exegesis based not on scripture but on your indoctrination into the pagan trinity dogma.

'So the one that created all things became flesh.'- Elder 7/21/13. You promote the false teaching of Ellen G. White.
---David8318 on 7/22/13




'God the Father did not come in the flesh but God the Son did'- christan.

Proof positive christan (and trinitarians as a whole) do not worship the same God Jesus worshipped. Jesus worshipped his Father- Jehovah (YHWH) God, not himself (Mt.4:10). Neither is there any passage where Jesus explicitly worships or directs worship to 'God the holy spirit' (or ghost). Thus, JW's are united with the Christ in worshipping purely Jehovah God. That's monotheism!

In his vain effort to explain away his trinitarian belief, christan must predictably resort to the infamous trinitarian passage at 1 John 5:7. Many unbiased scholars agree this spurious passage crept into the main text during the 4th century.

Who is kidding themselves!?
---David8318 on 7/22/13


David, I do not believe that the SDA's believe in the trinity. If they did they would not believe Jesus is an Archangel. They would believe that Jesus is God, the second Person of the Trinity. What it looks like to me is that francis is getting his teachings from the Jehovah Witnesses.
Second, trinitarians are not polytheistic. That is believing in two Gods or even three. We do not believe in three Gods nor two, but One God in Three Persons. Not three Gods. It is the union of The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in One Godhead. We read of all Three Persons having the same attributes, Omniscient, Omnipresent, and Omnipotent. Just wanted to correct that part. You could say we are monotheistic Trininterians
---Mark_V. on 7/22/13


David8318 on 7/21/13
Although I do believe that Jesus Christ is God, you unlike Christan and Mark_V are honest enough to say that SDA are sanitarians and do believe that Jesus is God

That is one of the things that they both lack: Honesty

Misunderstanding of a passage, a verse, can happen to anyone, but the type of dishonesty that Mark_V and Christan displays is a show of whom they really serve and worship

I am not bothered by people who have different views from me, but dishonesty by those who claim to be Christians does bothers me.

Why do some people stop so short?
Here we have a quote from John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word...
v2 the same was in the beginning with God...
v3 All things were made by Him...
Read all of the verses down to v14.
v14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...
According to Gen 1:1 God created all things.
So the one that created all things became flesh. That, one according to the Gospel of John, is Jesus Christ God Almighty!
---Elder on 7/21/13


David8318, your understanding of John 1:1 is no where close to what I believe it to be, so don't kid yourself you know.

John 1:1 is an explicit reminder of the divinity of Jesus Christ, period. The "Word" is Jesus Christ as verse 14 declares "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us". God the Father did not come in the flesh but God the Son did.

You say "Thus trinitarians have 2 Almighty God's at John 1:1." Well, that's what you JWs say. But this is what the Bible declares, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

Understand the meaning "are one"? No?
---christan on 7/21/13




Her. francis, your confuse what you say,
"First he accuses me of keeping the law." Not true, no one can keep the whole law. I accuse you of promoting others to keep the law because you promote Saturday Sabbath, in your eyes if they don't keep Saturday Sabbath they are breaking the law but not you. Then say
"Second he thinks that God will touch someone's heart, and the result will be that the person stops keeping the law of God," Not true at all. When God touches your heart He changes you into a new creation, you don't stop sinning, but become a slave to God in spirit, trying your best to please Him. Sanctification means, He is changing you, but you are never without sin until your sinful flesh dies.
---Mark_V. on 7/22/13


Trinitarians which include SDA's believe Jesus (the Word) was God. E.White stated her trinitarian bent when she wrote, 'If Christ made all things, He existed before all things... Christ was God essentially, and in the highest sense.'

This is not and never has been JW teaching. SDA's have more in common with the false trinitarian teachings of christan and MarkV.
---David8318 on 7/21/13

Thank you, Honest post
---francis on 7/21/13


"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

This is a trinitarian/SDA polytheist rendering of John 1:1. 'Who is the Word'? According to SDA's and all other trinitarians 'the Word was God'- but also note the Word 'was with God'. Thus trinitarians have 2 Almighty God's at John 1:1. This is polytheism.

Trinitarians which include SDA's believe Jesus (the Word) was God. E.White stated her trinitarian bent when she wrote, 'If Christ made all things, He existed before all things... Christ was God essentially, and in the highest sense.'

This is not and never has been JW teaching. SDA's have more in common with the false trinitarian teachings of christan and MarkV.

One day God will touch his heart and change it, and he will come to know the truth and he will be set free from the bondage of sin.
---Mark_V. on 7/21/13
First he accuses me of keeping the law. You can't keep the law and at the same time living in bondage of sin. Bondage of sin is not keeping the law

Second he thinks that God will touch someone's heart, and the result will be that the person stops keeping the law of God, which means when God enters your heart you start living in sin

You are yet to understand what it means to be sanctified. It means that Christ in you, strengths you and enables you to keep every law of God

Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
---francis on 7/21/13


Brother MarkV, the Truth has been brought forth to francis on numerous occasions. His unbelief to the Word, according to Peter has been predestined from eternity and we can only pray to God Almighty that he will not be left in this hardened position by the Lord.

He may be kicking and screaming with regards to "Yet another victim of no child left behind", but in the testimony of the Word, we know there's no such a thing as freewill. The one left behind is simply because God has not elected him from eternity to be with Him, aka never loved him but hated him.

The one thing we do know according to the Word is unbelief that Christ is God is what will send the unbeliever to eternal death in Hell.
---christan on 7/21/13


Christan, the reason he does not answer you concerning (John 1:1) is because he has a New World Translation Bible, which says,
"In the beginning the word was, and the word was with God, and the Word was a god"
Just another reason why he said Jesus was mighty god but not Almighty God. And of course by not been Almighty God, he can be an archangel, which is shear nonsense. And the reason why he did not answer the passage in (John 1:1). Jehovah Witness teachings is what francis teaches, the teachings of E.G. White and Charles Russell.

heretic francis, you are as lost as my son with your false jesus. Even the laws you present cannot save him or you.
One day God will touch his heart and change it, and he will come to know the truth and he will be set free from the bondage of sin. That salvation has to be granted to him by God not me.
"...God may perhaps grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth, and they may escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will" (2 Tim. 2:25,26). It is the work of God.

"The name God, is reserved mainly for THE FATHER" francis

"Reserved"? Then the apostle John must have been misguided and you could teach him a thing or two when he wrote, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Who's the Word? What is the Word?

Furthermore, we were explicitly told, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." So, what's the "one" that the three is known as? Isn't it "God"?

You don't need to confuse anyone with your theology, for you are already confused on your own. And that's clear to see.

One day, a SDA will speak to your son, and show him Jesus and the law of God, and what you son will see is this:

Romans 7:12 the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good
Psalms 99:9 God is holy.
Psalms 73:1 God is good
Zeph 3:5 The Lord is Just

Matthew 5:48 your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Psalms 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect

John 4:24 God is a Spirit:
Romans 7:14 the law is spiritual.

1 John 4:8 God is love.
The Law of God is built on love

When your son hears this from a SDA and realized that keeping the law is how we reflect God's image, then and only then will he accept Christ as his savior

2 Corinthians 11:31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Christan, francis also believes Jesus is Michael the archangel a created being. That is why I said, there is no truth in him. The reason he is stuck under the law. What he needs is an awakening by God. He, like the witnesses belief Jesus is Michael and we know why, they both were taught by E.G. White.

The very same words of the Jehovah witness teach from The New world Translation bible.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all, and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one."

Satan's biggest lie is this "do ________ it will help you get through this situation or make you more like God" (Genesis Ch3) then you do said action and Satan comes back "how dare you do _____ you think God is going to love you now."

Cluny, there is no whining when discussing Scripture,
" 1. Arminianism is merely a variant of Calvinism, not its opposite."
Not true at all.
Calvinism doctrine teaches salvation as a work of grace from beginning to end, in no sense do they believe that the sinner saved himself or contributed to his salvation. Adam's fall had completely ruined the race. All men are by nature spiritually dead and their wills are in bondage to sin and Satan. The ability to believe the gospel is itself a gift from God, bestowed only upon those whom He had chosen to be the objects of His unmerited favor. It was not man, but God, who determines which sinners would be shown mercy and saved. Arminianism is the opposite.
---Mark_V. on 7/19/13


francis, you don't have to say nor write it, but isn't it true that your leader Ellen G. White DENIED the deity of Jesus, who in 1903 said, The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty (ms 140, SDA Commentary V, p. 1129). Isn't that part of your SDA doctrine and teachings?

heretic francis, calvinism does not teach Jesus is Michael the archangel. You don't even know what Calvinism is. Calvinism is not one person or one single individual.

So nowhere within the teachings of Calvinism does it teach Jesus is Michael the archangel, at least not in the system of believe of Calvinism. There is only two major opposing systems of believe, Calvinism and Arminianism.

God wants us to Love and Satan wants us to Hate. So beware of this tactic which will cause you to hate someone.
The Zimmerman trial is a good example of this tactic. "Divide and conquer".

"Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exodus 20:10 the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:"

But do you find anywhere in those passages where God said that the Sabbath was on Saturday? or that He started creation on Sunday and rested on Saturday? so you have been deceived, for the Truth is not in you. Remember 1 John 1:18? You have failed the test.

why these three: becaus ein these three we see the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,

It is not a requirement that all three be present in sin, but 1 out of the 3 is always present in sin

I will not be talking with you about these anymore, This is new to you, and you have not yet understood it, you can anly scoff

francis, as usual, your understanding is all erroneous and has marks of one being deceived by the devil.

You quote 1 John 2:16 to tell us that "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" is the tactic of satan? Seriously? I thought that came from the fall in the garden and basically the sin nature of all man that will express such desires? Are you going to blame satan for your desire to sin? Where's your accountability for your own sins? So on judgement day, you're going to tell God, "satan made me do it". Ya, right!

So, children of Satan want to do his desires. And what, often enough, are desires that evil people want to do? Seek pleasure, instead of being satisfied in loving > but the LORD says, "with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you." (in Psalm 81:16) But Satanic people seek pleasure, instead.

servant I never said that God instructs us to fight satan but goes to heaven to accuse the brothren. we are to be aware of the tactics of satan and put on the whole armor of God. I didn't ask anyone to fight but I ask believers to tell ways that satan has tried to deceive mankind.

Satan and His Kingdom:What the Bible Says.. by Dennis McCallum
This highly readable and useful examination of Satan and spiritual warfare was written out of necessity. In recent years, pastor and teacher Dennis McCallum found himself fielding more and more questions about Satan. He wanted to recommend a book on the subject, but those he found either reflected extreme beliefs, contained little biblical instruction, used fear tactics, or were poorly written.
In Satan and His Kingdom, McCallum clarifies what is true and what is false about Satan, demons, and demonic control--both historically and today. He shows readers how to effectively battle the enemy individually and corporately, all the while keeping their focus on Christ, not Satan...

... demons tempt by things that look pious and virtuous.
---Cluny on 7/15/13
That is so true.
So many will swear to you that there is some virtue in Sunday, It looks like such a pious occasions, but what they do not know is that satan is tempting them and getting them to live in sin by breaking of the the commandments of God:

Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exodus 20:10 the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:

A-servant, I agree with brother Christan, for the simple reason that most who answer here know very little about God. When they answer passages, they do not even realize they are demeaning the deity of God with their answers. Why? Because they know little about who the God of Scripture is.
Mostly charasmatics, want to talk about the devil. I believe with the time we have, we are to know God more and more each day. Why give any time to the devil? As Bryan said, he was defeated at the Cross. Second, because no one can see a spirit. Most of what many say, is their own feelings and experiences. And let me tell you, with the millions of people around, you cannot trust any of them. I say, trust in God for He is always righteous.

Christan://Did the written Word instruct the Christian to "learn all the tactics of satan"... // The written word asks us to resist the devil, there is no harm in knowing the tactics of whom we are to resist.

Did the written Word instruct the Christian to "learn all the tactics of satan" and then pick a fight with him?
-Christian

Not for me personally, but did you ever think that maybe some people want to know more about the devil to recognize his presence and stay away. Just because someone wants to learn about Satan doesn't mean they're looking for a fight. Not intended to be offensive, but you are too quick to judge.
---A_servant on 7/16/13


God watches over his word to perform it. Sow the Gospel and God does the rest. That is were are faith should be. Remember satan was defeated by Jesus already. Why would you give him any area to jack with you? He has been defeat, and by the way your name is not Job. Job lived under the law. Were if you did not obey all the law it had a price that had to be paid. His disbelief in Gods' word cost him everything. Once, not twice. He went from what he thought was right to knowing what was right. We all should be so blessed

Christan, you are correct. We are not to learn about satan, but learn about God. I just answered Carla about the duty of the believer. It is not our job to go after satan and his demons. We are instructed to preach the gospel Truth.
We are instructed to put on the armor of God if the Holy Spirit warns us of his presence. No one has seen satan but God, he is spirit, and any comments that demons stop cars or hold people down, are rediculous. If a demon manifested himself in a human form, they have no power over the believer. Some people are just to excited to speak about demons and the devil. They know more about them then they know about our Sovereign Almighty God. Believers should be learning all there is to know about God not Satan.

Hi, Shira (c: What has helped me is to consider how Paul says there is "the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience," in Ephesians 2:2. And understand that Satan's evil spirit has emotions which he can share with a human, making a person messed up, emotionally.

This means, then, I mostly need to pay attention to what is going on inside of my own self. If anything degrades me from being sweetly in God's peace, this thing probably is the working of Satan's evil spirit. So, right away I need to fight it, resist it in prayer to God, so He restores me to being in His love and sweetness and kindness and how He leads us in "rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:28-30) That's my basic (c:

One of Satan's powerful tactic that the Holy Bible mentioned is SUBTLETY. This is sometimes used to usher in the satanic principal weapon of deception.

Christian, I am part of nothing but my Savior. I am not picking a fight with anything. I was attempting to help whoever so those who really care can be aware. Satan works in ways some don't recognize. Maybe you can do all that so you can ignore all post on this blog.my prayer is to help someone. Satan can't touch me unless God says he can.

cluny, thanks for your input. I thought this blog would help someone and I know it will. I don't let just anything in my house especially some books. I know a girl who did that and strange things started happening in her house. I told her to burn the books. she did and things were better after that. God is my refuge and my shield. I am under His wing.

Did the written Word instruct the Christian to "learn all the tactics of satan" and then pick a fight with him? Rather, the Christian is warned, "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour".

Your doctrine is contrary to what is written, "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." and "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

You're one typical of the charismatic movement. You seriously want to deal with satan? It's a no brainer to what the outcome will be.
---christan on 7/15/13


shira, demons are more subtle than a lot of people think.

A good book about Satanic tactics is the classic SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C. S. Lewis.

In this book, demons tempt by things that look pious and virtuous.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Satan works in every mean look, every insult thought or spoken aloud, every mistrust of God's deliverance (worry), every thing that is not good and acceptable before God is evidence of the corruption of Satan, and the devil in all of us (until redemption through salvation of course).

satan is not a respecter of persons either he will steal, kill, and destroy anybody he can get to believe him, Believers or nonbeliever. If your a believer in Christ Jesus you will learn to put satan under your feet were he belongs. He is the only one who belongs there not your neighbor. Who does not go to your church.

atheist, why are you upset because I'm inquiring about your father, satan?
---shira4368 on 7/14/13


Satan works as the rebellious spirit in the children of disobedience. Eph 2:2
He works to blind the mind and harden the heart of the unbeliever. John 12:40
He works, as He roams, to spiritually destroy anyone open to receive his inspiration and influence, as an adversary of the believer.1 Peter 5:8
The only reason He comes into the life of anyone is to kill, steal, and destroy. John 10:10
However his crowning work will be the work of deception. If it were possible, and it is not, he and his minions would deceive even the Father's chosen ones, His elect, by coming to them as an "Angel of light". Mat 24:24>2Cr 11:14
