Transgender: God Didn’t Make You This Way

The Seventh-day Adventist Church released a statementon April 11, 2017 regarding the position of the church regarding transgenderism and the attitude that SDA Church members should have toward transgender individuals. I found the statement to be very carefully thought through and compassionate while being grounded in bible truth. I’m including the entire text below for your benefit.

Seventh-day Adventist World Church Vote Statement on Transgenderism:

Church leaders express the desire to bring people to the foot of the cross, not chase them away from Christ

The following statement on Transgenderism, or Gender Dysphoria, was voted by the executive committee of the Seventh-day Adventist Church during their annual Spring Meetings.

In his role as chair, Ted Wilson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church urged the statement be voted “with the understanding we may be able to adjust a little phrasing here or there that might make it less abstract.” He went on to say, … Continue reading

040 – Messiah’s Calendar Part 2

Jesus’ Movement through the Sanctuary

The Plan of Redemption is unfolding on time according to key prophecies. Jesus’ movement through the sanctuary marks the big phases of God’s Plan of Redemption.

Today’s program is Part 2 of Messiah’s Calendar, a study of the “mystery of God” contained in the ancient Hebrew Sanctuary and the Jewish religious calendar. Today we’ll be looking at three important aspects of the Sanctuary: 1) We’ll address the question of whether we still need to keep the Sabbath. In our last program 039 – Messiah’s Calendar Part 1 we said that we don’t need to keep the feasts, but do we need to keep the Sabbath? We’re going to tackle that question first. 2) We’re going to consider the importance of time in the unfolding of the Plan of Redemption. I’ll be providing the biblical evidence for the calendar aspects of the Plan of Redemption to demonstrate that God always moves on time. God’s plan is unfolding according to the prophecies given in Genesis 3:15 and Daniel 8:13-14. His … Continue reading

Temptation copy

#2 Biggest New Age Lie: “Ye shall be as gods” and have total control over your own reality. Find out what the Bible says.

In today’s program we’ll be discussing the second biggest lie in the Top 10 Countdown of New Age Lies. Satan is the father of all New Age lies, “the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9).

As we get to the top of the countdown the lies I’ll be exposing are getting into deeper theological issues and are becoming increasingly more critical for the salvation of our souls. The Bible truths that I’ll reveal and explain today are very solemn. Whether you choose to hear, understand and accept these truths or not will determine your eternal destiny. “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19). Let’s get started!

Chinese metaphysics is taking over the world as steadily as Chinese manufacturing did. Discover the spiritual flaws in this belief system.

In today’s program we’ll be exposing the fifth largest lie of the New Age. This lie comes to us from a rising world empire, dressed in red and gold and is sweeping across the world. It falsely claims that those who study its secrets can control the breath of life so that it brings them success and prosperity.

When the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon came out, we were all spellbound as we watched the magical scenes of the Chinese fighters flying above the bamboo trees and other combat special effects. I vividly remember the first time I watched it I was on an airplane. Someone next to me was watching it and although I could just as easily have turned on my own screen and listened to the soundtrack I preferred to silently watch the breathtaking scenes that unfolded one after another. This is the promise of Feng Shui and all of the Chinese metaphysical arts … Continue reading

#10: The Trojan Horse of Yoga and Meditation

The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War about the stratagem that the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy and win the war. The Greeks had sieged the city of Troy for 10 years with no success. Then the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and concealed inside of it an elite force. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. Now the Trojans had received three different warnings not to bring the horse inside the city because it would mean their defeat. But the Trojans didn’t listen, and despite the warnings brought the horse inside the walls of their city. That night the Greek soldiers crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back to Troy under cover of night. The Greek army entered and … Continue reading
