Obama Spygate Scandal
Some of the things said here about English courts get things all wrong. The political activist was not put in jail for political reasons but for contempt of court. Judges protect the jury from influence and intimidation during a trial. The man jailed admitted what he had done was wrong. Going against court rules (like over reporting or identifying people involved in a trial) could mean a trial has to be stopped. It could stop criminals being found guilty of their crimes. I guess courts in America are different.
I thought I would say this, as people dont understand it. A lot of American news reports on the UK get things wrong. From Samuel

Interpret A Dream
I would say it is a spiritual dream because I have had many others that ment something.
Job 33:15-18 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed, Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

Are There Salvation Standards
Acts 2:38 is your guarantee that your salvation is completed

Revelation For Churches Today
True I do not know as much about the conditions in the Orthodox church as I do about the RCC. But the orhodox church followed putting tradition above scripture that the RCC followed. It also used the goverments to enforce it's regulations by law denying the right of humans to decide what to believe.

They also in the Iconoclast Controversy 726-843. choose against scripture.

Jehovah Witnesses 7th Day
As a Seventh day Adventist we believe along with a number of non adventist scholars that one of the preincarnation titles of the GOD the son was michael head of all the angels.

The Seventh day Sabbath and Conditionalism were both taught before Ellen G. White was born.

Seventh day Adventist teach to be a Christian you must be born again by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT which saves you by grace alone. The JW do not believe they in general are born again as only their leaders the 144,000 are born again.

Writings Of Paul False
Paul does not teach lawlesness. He wrote:Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

People have taken some of his words and twisted them to get rid of the law. The problem is not with Paul's writings it is with those who twist them.

Amnesty For Mexicans
So letting children who cannot work stay with their parents cost people jobs? How? People serving in the military fighting for this country need to be thrown out according to you. I respect the people who fight and might die protecting us why do you not respect them?

Students in colleges do not take the jobs of anyone they are in college. Read what the law says.

Is Jesus Creator Or Created
Eph 3:9 And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

JESUS created all things he could not create himself so he is one with GOD.

Sabbath Instruction For Christians
I remeber reading how when the Lutherns first threw out the statues in their churches and wrote the Ten Commandments on the walls of their churches.

I also remebere when Methodist preaches about keeping the commandments of GOD as part of their duty to GOD. Look up Wesley's sermons about how the Ten Commandments are for Christians. Or look up how Calvin wrote about the Ten Commandments being for Christians.

Galations teaches not to try to save ourselves by works. It does not say GOD does not have laws.

Quotes From The Old Testament
Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law

Why do those here teach Paul contridicts himself. When we love others we do not steal, lie, murder, covet, we obey our parents or commit adultery. Love goes beyond the letter to fullfill the Spirit of the law which is love to others.

But when we love others does that mean we do not also love GOD? If love to others causeing us to follow above and beyound the law should not love to GOD do the same?

Steps To Christ Ellen White
Thank you Francis for actually quoting instead of just saying that you know more.

By the way I have a book of the writings of the earliest church Fathers and have read it more then once.

Also I readily admit that EGW was human a sinner and made mistakes. Should we only listen to prophets who never sinned?

Different Number Of Books
The main reason is that the Greek translation which non jews could read had extra books added called the apocrapha that were found in the Septuigent. These books are not accepted as Canon by the jews but the Ortodox churches need them to be in order to support some of their doctrines.

Ellen G. White A Prophet
SDA stands for Seventh day Adventist. We are a world wide church that believes in salvation by Grace alone through faith alone. But that the love of GOD and others casues us to follow GOD keep his commandments including the Ten Commandments and treat all people with love.

Christ Against Organized Churches
The Bible is written in Greek and does use the word Cephas but not in the passage being quoted. About the church being built on the Rock. It is used here.

1Cr 1:12,13 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul, and I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

We are not saved by Peter we are saved by JESUS CHRIST.
He is the one who counts.

I have read Church Fathers on the church being founded on Peter. I have also read where those not from Rome opposed this for the use that Popes made of it to make themselves rulers over others. This helped lead to the great schism.

Are We Justified By Our Works
Our works are the result of what GOD has done in us. So we do the right thing because we love GOD. Not to be saved but because we are saved.

Ellen G. White A Prophet
What is the first most important work of a Prophet?

No it is not to predict the future. Which is why Jews do not place Daniel as a prophet. The major work of the prophet is to tell the people what they are doing that is wrong. Read Jeremiah, Isiah, and all the other prophets found in the Bible. How much of their writing is predictive? Very little.

Mostly they told people to love GOD and keep His commandments. What is the main them of E. G. Whites writings Love GOD and keep his commandments.

Steps To Christ Ellen White
I was on the fence about following JESUS but reading this book convinced me to follow JESUS.

How does this quote lead away from JESUS?

It is impossible for us, of ourselves, to escape from the pit of sin in which we are sunken. Our hearts are evil, and we cannot change them. "Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one." "The carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." Job 14:4, Romans 8:7.

There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before men can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ. His grace alone can quicken the lifeless faculties of the soul, and attract it to God, to holiness.

Steps To Christ Ellen White
So Cluny what passage in Steps to Christ leads away from him? Give an example. Here is another quote.

This is the same figure to which Christ referred in His conversation with Nathanael, when He said, "Ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man." John 1:51. In the apostasy, man alienated himself from God, earth was cut off from heaven. Across the gulf that lay between, there could be no communion. But through Christ, earth is again linked with heaven. With His own merits, Christ has bridged the gulf which sin had made, so that the ministering angels can hold communion with man. Christ connects fallen man in his weakness and helplessness with the Source of infinite power.

Christ Against Organized Churches
Ruben The word is Petros not cephas in the Bible for the name of Peter. Also the church is built on on Petra not cephas in the original greek.

So why are you changing the words of the Bible? Also Peter said.

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

1Pe 2:7 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, [even to them] which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

It Is Finished Meaning
Well you did not search very hard Rob. In fact please tell me honestly did you search at all?

I give you an easy one. EGW stated the Protestant churches would reach out to the restablised Roman Cathoic churches.

Now do not forget that in the early 20th century all protestant churches taught the Pope was the antichrist for murdering millions of Protestants.
