James White, George Butler, Uriah Smith and Ellen White on the Doxology

James White, George Butler, Uriah Smith and Ellen White on the Doxology

Article by Jason Smith
Here recently I have been privileged to interact with a leading brother who believes in God the Father and His pre-incarnate only begotten Son. While we discussed many interesting things I noted, during our conversation, that he seemed to have a bit of disdain for the doxology. And here on facebook, just a few days ago, another brother issued this interesting response to an EGW quote that positively referenced the doxology.

Understanding the Word, "Godhead"

Understanding the Word, "Godhead"

Article by Mihaela Williams
In discovering and studying the truth about the Father and Son, I also discovered that I was taking certain terms and concepts for granted just because I had heard them or read them so many times that they were now ingrained in my mind with a certain meaning. One of those terms was the word “Godhead.”

Holy Spirit has a Distinct Personality-A Statement re-examined

Article by Paul Chung
This article re-examines the personhood and the identity of the Holy Spirit which often been portrayed by the use of the noted statement, "The Holy Spirit is the Comforter, in Christ’s name. HE PERSONIFIES CHRIST, YET IS A DISTINCT PERSONALITY. We may have the Holy Spirit if we ask for it and make it [a] habit to turn to and trust in God rather than in any finite human agent who may make mistakes. {20MR 324.2}

Is Jesus the Lord God Almighty?

Is Jesus the Lord God Almighty?

Article by Jason Smith
Is Jesus Christ the Almighty God or is He a lesser God?  The article contains very useful information, especially for the SDA anti/non-trinitarians. Just as we point out areas where our SDA trinitarian brothers and sisters are neglecting inspiration the exact same thing can be said of us. 

The holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and Spirit of Christ

The holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and Spirit of Christ

Article by Jason Smith
The Biblical data completely repudiates the idea that the holy Spirit is not the Spirit of God and Spirit of Christ. While we understand from sister White that the holy Spirit is the 3rd Person of the Godhead, a conscious, distinct personality outside of the tangible forms of Father and Son, It is still the actual Spirit of God and His Son. Any doctrine that says otherwise does not pass the test of inspiration.

What is the Doctrine of the Trinity? Part 1

Article by Jason Smith
Approximately 2 weeks ago I received a request from one of the brothers asking for help on behalf of some of the non-trinitarian brethren. This request happened because a pastor gave them a formal letter notifying them that a church board meeting had been called to discuss church discipline against them for the following two reasons:

This article is Part 2 of "What is the Doctrine of Trinty." In part 1 I discussed what the doctrine of the trinity is according to Christendom. I hope that you were edified by that post. In case you missed it, click HERE.

Hopefully, with everyone on the same page (or at least in the same chapter! Lol!) regarding what this doctrine is and what it means in Christendom at large, we are prepared to move on to discuss the doctrine of the trinity within Seventh-day Adventism. 

A Question of Sonship: An EGW Compilation

A Question of Sonship: An EGW Compilation

Article by Jason Smith
Today in Seventh-day Adventism it is taught that the pre-incarnate Father/Son relationship between the 1st and 2nd Persons of the Godhead was just a metaphor. For example: “The term “Son” is used metaphorically when applied to the Godhead” (Angel Rodriguez, “A Question of Sonship” BRI article)

Countless other examples of this type of statement could be given. Yet what does inspiration teach?
