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

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

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.

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

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

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 Trinity? Part 2-Variants Among Seventh-day Adventist Trinitarians

What is the Doctrine of Trinity? Part 2-Variants Among Seventh-day Adventist Trinitarians

By Jason Smith
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

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?

The holy Spirit is Himself divested,...

QUESTION OF THE WEEK FOR DISSIDENT SDA ANTI-TRINITARIANS: If, according to you, the Spirit is literally Jesus in person but manifested as another person, which of his "two persons" stripped "himself" of the personality of humanity?? If you say it was the human Jesus, then it is plain Jesus had to have been literally the person of the Holy Spirit while here on earth. But if it was the Spirit person who had remained in heaven who stripped himself of humanity, he too must have become human in order to do that. So which of the "two persons" of the one Jesus, according to you, took off his humanity and came to earth on the day of Pentecost???
