I hope Adventists learn to ask more interesting questions…soon!
This pedestrian right day/wrong day obsession guts the Sabbath of all meaning!
The Commandments are deeper than we think.
Ellen White said, the Laws of Nature are the laws of God.
Try to integrate the two in your mind.
If the Ten Commandments are a transcript of the character of God, what are the Laws of Nature?
Are they separate from the character of God?
Is God’s character compartmentalized into moral rules on the one hand, and laws of physics and chemistry on the other?
Is Christ divided?
Sh’ma Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Ecḥad
Hear, O Israel: the LORD is our God, the LORD is One.
Fulfilling the Law Through Love
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
We’ve tried to compartmentalize God!
That’s why our soteriology and eschatology clash!
Adventist eschatology is not healthy!
The mystery of Love and the mystery of the Sabbath are entwined in eternal embrace.
