“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart,
I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:
I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will be like the most High.”
The above is a description of the origin of ‘I will’ – not ‘God will’ – sin in Heaven, in a sex-less, created angel, who simply became insanely proud in the face of God.
Pride, then, is the greatest, the most Satanic, ‘sin’.
I am guilty of pride many times a day, and watching proud , ‘sinless’, SDAs is not helping me ‘overcome’ my ‘unnatural taste’ for pride. . . .
So, please – some better, some humbler, Seventh-day Adventist out there – please, start disfellowship proceedings against me.
And, while you are at it, start them, also, against all other proud, stone-throwing SDA church leaders and members as well, because clearly Jesus was wrong when He said:
[“And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners? When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them,]
They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick:
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
I was under the impression that baptism was the beginning of such healing – safely, humbly, confessing my sinful state, dying to ‘self’, while rising up, hidden safely ‘in Christ’, ‘our righteousness’ . . . who is now resurrected all the way up to stand before the reconciling face of ‘Our Father Who art in Heaven’, while I ‘heal’ in ‘My Father’s’ own good time . . . clearly I was wrong.
Clearly too many good-standing SDAs still think of ‘baptism’ as the ‘diploma’ that entitles us to join that SDA ‘club’ who proudly have no need of the ‘healing’ ‘Savior’ Jesus, or of ‘Our Father’s’ reconciling face.
I disagree with those ‘too many’ ‘good’ SDAs.
Being created a ‘man’, or a ‘woman’, with sexual appetites, was NOT a mistake, an ‘error’, a ‘sin’. . . on God’s part. ‘Sin’ has ‘created’ many things that God never designed, never intended, like my ‘pride’. 'Pride happens, just like ‘Gay’ happens. But only God has the power of ‘re-Creation’ to heal my pride . . . in His own good way . . . in His own good time . . . unless my self-‘pride’ – ‘straight’, ‘gay’ . . . or ‘otherwise’ – gets in the way.
So, please, disfellowship me from that proud SDA ‘club’,
before it is too late for my healing.
I need to find the nearest branch of ‘Arrogance Anonymous’, ASAP.
That ‘good’ SDA ‘club’ is simply ‘not doing it for me’.
And, ‘I will’ NOT be able to overcome my Satanic pride, my-self.
. . . and, to that baptized ‘gay’ SDA couple:
Happy Valentine’s Day !
You keep your eyes on the face of Jesus,
and He’ll raise you to where the ‘Our Father’ has raised Him !
