Righteousness by Faith - Part 2

A Change of Government

In this article I want to focus on what I consider to be one of the greatest misconceptions among those who are from a Seventh-day Adventist background.

What is Legalism?

What is Legalism? The word “legalism” is most often used in a religious context and it usually refers to somebody who attaches undue importance to minor details in his religious practices.

Christ Versus The Beast

The controversy between God and Satan is not primarily a contest focused on individuals; It is not a contest to see who is more powerful, or who is more popular, it is a contest between two systems of government.

The book of Galatians

The arguments of Paul in the book of Galatians are very important, and understanding them is critical to a proper appreciation of the purpose and place of the law, as well as to a proper appreciation of the gospel.

Future “Good Things”

It is important to note that the law did not simply represent, “good things,” but it represented good things to come in the future.

Legal Law vs Natural Law

I believe the legal expression of the moral law (the ten commandments) to be a true, but limited expression of the will of God.

Is It Jesus Himself?

Within the community of those who believe in the one true God, there is emerging a concept of the Spirit of God which I believe is false, contrary to the Scriptures,..

The Missing Disciple

And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

God has given Christ to us

He has given us the gift of his Son, the greatest gift that Heaven could bestow; and now if you connect with God, if you connect with heaven, you may, in the name and strength of Jesus develop symmetrical characters; characters that are spotless as the pure lily that opens its blossom on the bosom of the lake.

Immediate Righteousness

This concept views the Christian life as a total and immediate change (2 Cor. 5:17; 1 John 3:19), rather than a gradual change which takes place through hard struggles.

What is the Truth?

For most people truth is a statement which expresses things which are not false. It represents an accurate statement of the facts concerning any particular subject.

I will give you rest

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (29) Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. (30) For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Mat 11:28-30)
