The following article was found in one Adventist publication: 


Arthur S. Maxwell:  "Do Seventh-day Adventists believe in the Trinity? They do. Reverently they worship Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ‘three Persons in one God. And they do so because they believe this to be the teaching of the Bible concerning God in His relation to this world and the human race." A Guide to the Religions of America, by Leo Rosten, p.136.

John Chapter 14 and the Another Comforter

To say that the Trinity is unscriptural might hurt some people’s feelings but even Trinitarian theologians admit this. Just the words of Jesus themselves is sufficient for us to know that the Father is the one and only true God and that Jesus is His only begotten Son. If the Father is not a Father and the Son is not a Son then why stop with just those two beings in the Trinity? Why is the Holy Spirit just called the Holy Spirit? Jesus calls God His Father... then I believe that God is His Father. God calls His Son "this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased" so I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. It's that simple. Now, what about the Spirit? Well it is the Spirit of God; therefore it is a Holy Spirit not a separate person of from the Father. The devil has a spirit and that spirit is not holy but an unholy spirit. The spirit of devils (evil angels) can enter into human beings... but do we believe that the spirit of Satan is a different person than Satan? So why when we come to God we now step into something strange and go beyond anything that the bible has shown us and we assume that the Holy Spirit is a different person than God?

Is Gabriel the Holy Spirit?

According to Muslims and some translations of Qur’an the angel Gabriel is considered as the Holy Spirit. If we read all the verses very carefully which is talking about the angel Gabriel and the Holy Spirit in the Qur’an we will not find any verse says that Al Rouh (الروح = the Spirit) is the angel Gabriel... The meaning of ROUH is purely SPIRIT. Yes, the angels are spiritual beings but it does not mean that they are Spirit of God. We also have a spirit (Human Spirit) does it mean that we are angels? In the Qur'an, the Holy Spirit is also known as the Spirit of/from Allah.

The Sabbath and the mark of the beast

We read in the Bible:
Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Prophecy in the Bible and in the Qur’an

My dear friend Adrian Ebens answered the questions “is the Bible all inspired by God? And what does that mean?” on my blog titled Is the Qur’an inspired by God? as following:

“For me personally, the proof of the Bible's inspired position comes through the prophecies of the Bible and specifically the prophecies about the coming of Christ. I lay out my evidence in These Charts

On one of these charts I mention only 49 prophecies out of around 300 concerning Christ. The probability of these all being fulfilled is less that the Big Bang, yet they all came true. This gives me powerful evidence for its divine origin.

Has Anyone Ever Seen God?

The answer to this question in the Bible is yes and no!

Yes, many have seen him.
Genesis 12:7 The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” So he built can altar there to the Lord who had appeared to him.

Gen. 18:1 Now the LORD appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day.”

Truth, Honesty & Trinity

What the Bible Says About the honesty and truth?

Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Joh 14:6 

If Christ is Truth, then it follows that lying is moving away from Christ. Being honest is about following in God's footsteps, for He cannot lie. If the believers’ goal is to become more God-like and God-centered, then honesty needs to be a focus.

Preservation of the Bible by the People of the Book

The written word of God is reverenced for its vital importance to the welfare of the Church of Jesus Christ, but it was never intended as a means of eternal salvation. Jesus said, "Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me." - John 5: 39. Jesus Christ is the Living Word, and our salvation is wholly and completely in Him.

REFINER’S FIRE... Until He sees His image in you!


Malachi 3:3 says: 'He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.'

This verse puzzled a group in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.

One of them offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study. That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver.
