God?

God?

Basic Truth #1: God is Love. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8 When I think of basic tenets of the Adventist faith, several things come to mind. The Investigative Judgment. The mark of the beast. The state of the dead. The Sabbath. Creationism and the age of […]

A pastor had been counseling a husband and wife. The problem was that, the husband had been having extramarital affairs. That’s not an extramarital affair but, in fact, many of them.

This week’s lesson repeatedly talks about the two characteristics that will distinguish God’s remnant church from the rest. We are told that one of those characteristics is that the remnant will “keep His commandments”. That phrase was said numerous times, but I think that it must be explained further.
