Lesson 12: John’s Letter to the Chosen Lady

Lesson 12: John’s Letter to the Chosen Lady

The relationship between truth and love seems to be something most of us miss in practice.  When you really think about it though, can you have one without the other?  Can you be a doctrine-abiding Christian SDA without love?  Can you love without knowing the truth?

Lesson 6: Sin

Lesson 6: Sin

I just looked in the mirror and realized that for every sin I committed this week, there’s probably a visible manifestation on my face.  I had a really trying week and worry consumed me taking me from one stupid decision to the next, until Friday I just felt as though I was drowning in a […]

Thou shalt not go to clubs
Thou shalt not wear jewelry
Thou shalt not use drums in the church
Thou shalt not dance

It’s a fine line between cheap grace and legalism

Lesson 4: The Remnant

Lesson 4: The Remnant

This week’s lesson repeatedly talks about the two characteristics that will distinguish God’s remnant church from the rest.
