I watched all of the endorsement…live.
One thing that a viewer can get out of it , is that one can get a different opinion/perspective about another individual by spending time with them instead of just making a judgment based on hearsay, gossip or media snippets.
There are so many Jesus’s out there because people only hear some snippets from a sermon or do a quick read of bible verses.
90% of churchgoers have never read whole bible. Most SDA do not spend time or much time with their SS lesson. More time is spent watching TV than thinking and talking with/about God.
And with the 13 week Great Contoversy theme in progress…(SS quarterly) hardly any attention is given to the 2 main issues of the great controversy which is about the slander by Satan about the character of God and how unnecessary/oppressive the law is.
Many, if not most, SDA are now of the opinion that it is impossible to stop sinning before death or translation.
"Having the form of Godliness, but denying the power."
According to SOP , Satan claimed it was impossible for humans to keep the LAW of God and how many parrot his charge?
How many look upon Jesus with contempt because He said .".Be ye perfect…go and sin no more,… except your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes & Pharisees…"
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Cor 11:14-15
Received not the love of the truth…>>strong
Any chance that Ben witnessed to Don about God or SDA persuasion? They spent hours together. Maybe some of Ben’s gentleness influenced Don?
