Law And The Danger Of Freedom, Steven D. Paulson Jul 2001

Law And The Danger Of Freedom, Steven D. Paulson

Faculty Publications

Proposing a “third use of the law”—a law for Christians after faith—arises from a fear of freedom. It is finally a christological problem, since Christ put an end to the law not only in himself but also in us.

Scripture Faces Current Issues, P. Gerard Damsteegt Apr 1999

Scripture Faces Current Issues, P. Gerard Damsteegt

Faculty Publications

Adventists, people of the Book? Perhaps “peoples” of the Book would be more appropriate, because different approaches to the Bible have been introduced in Adventism that significantly affect belief and lifestyle. The Bible still reads the same; the conflict comes in how it is interpreted and applied.

New Light In The Last Days, P. Gerard Damsteegt Jan 1996

New Light In The Last Days, P. Gerard Damsteegt

Faculty Publications

Progressive revelation has played an important role in the development of the Seventh-day Adventist church. By “progressive revelation” I mean God’s continuous unfolding of previously-revealed truth which we often refer to as “new light.” Without God’s shedding new light on His revealed Word--the Bible--the Seventh-day Adventist church would not exist.

Review Of Magnificent Disappointment: What Really Happened In 1844 And Its Meaning For Today, By C. Mervyn Maxwell., P. Gerard Damsteegt

Faculty Publications

Magnificent Disappointment is a popularly written book in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Great Disappointment of 1844 when the hopes of Adventists were dashed when Jesus did not return. C. Mervyn Maxwell, one of the finest Seventh-day Adventist historians, attempts to explain the meaning of 1844 and its relevancy for today.


Blessings Of The Disappointment, P. Gerard Damsteegt Jan 1994

Blessings Of The Disappointment, P. Gerard Damsteegt

Faculty Publications

I believe the pioneers would point out that they experienced the great disappointment precisely because they did believe that Christ's ministry in the most holy place began at His ascension. The disappointment itself led them to the surprising discovery that this understanding was incorrect and was out of harmony with the broader context of the whole Bible.


Early Adventist Timesettings And Their Implications For Today, P. Gerard Damsteegt Apr 1993

Early Adventist Timesettings And Their Implications For Today, P. Gerard Damsteegt

Faculty Publications

A few Seventh-day Adventists interpret the time prophecies of Daniel and Revelation in a futuristic way. They view “prophetic days,” not in years as historical Adventists, but in literal days. A major reason for this approach is that they do not see much relevance in the way the prophecies have been interpreted. Consequently, these individuals are looking with great anticipation to a flurry of current events that they integrate into a final events prophetic scenario. Through this futuristic method they feel confident that they are accurately predicting major events in the great controversy that will usher in the Second Advent ...

Adventist Doctrines And Progressive Revelation, P. Gerard Damsteegt Jan 1991

Adventist Doctrines And Progressive Revelation, P. Gerard Damsteegt

Faculty Publications

Progressive revelation has played an important role in the development of the Seventh-day Adventist church and its theology. By “progressive revelation” I mean God’s continuous unfolding of prior revealed truth.1 Without such progressive revelation, the unfolding of inspired truth building on truth previously revealed and never denying it, the Seventh-day Adventist Church would not exist.

The Gospel And Feminism: A Proposal For Lutheran Dogmatics, Lois E. Malcolm Jul 1985

The Gospel And Feminism: A Proposal For Lutheran Dogmatics, Lois E. Malcolm

Faculty Publications

The aim of this essay is to identify the theological, and deeply Christian, point of resonance between Lutheran and feminist theologies. It begins with a brief overview of themes in Christian feminist theologies; it then offers rationale and recommendations for why and how Lutheran dogmatics should critically engage feminist perspectives so that it can better serve the task of assisting Christians in their proclamation of the promise in Jesus’ gospel.


"Unser Seminar": The Story Of Clinton German Seminary, Marley Soper Jul 1977

"Unser Seminar": The Story Of Clinton German Seminary, Marley Soper

Faculty Publications

As long as Clinotn German Seminary could fulfill its unique role of educating German-American Seventh-day Adventists in their own language it remained an important part of the church's educational program. But once social change removed the need for such education in the German language, the institution no longer served a useful purpose. Nevertheless, the school's small size, the teachers' dedication, the students' maturity, and the emphasis upon the service of God multiplied its impact beyond expectations.
