The Connection Between Slavery And Prophecy As It Related To The American Nation In The Writings Of The Adventist Pioneers During The Antebellum Period, Trevor O'Reggio, Dojcin Zivadinovic Apr 2012

The Connection Between Slavery And Prophecy As It Related To The American Nation In The Writings Of The Adventist Pioneers During The Antebellum Period, Trevor O'Reggio, Dojcin Zivadinovic

Trevor O'Reggio

The period between 1850 and 1865 was a period of major social upheavals in American society; the major issue was the slavery. This period also witnessed the birth and organization of the Sabbatarian Adventism, a pre-millennial Christian movement distinguished by an emphasis on the Seventh-day Sabbath and a special understanding of Bible prophecies. Most Adventist pioneers vehemently opposed slavery, although not always on the same ground as their Christian counterparts. Aided by their peculiar understanding of Bible prophecy, the early Adventists identified America with apocalyptical end-time power, slavery being the key attribute of the “beast that looks like a lamb ...

Abandonment – Who, How, Why: A Case For A Multifaceted Understanding Of Jesus’ Cry From The Cross In Mark 15:34, G. Dan Harris Jan 2012

Abandonment – Who, How, Why: A Case For A Multifaceted Understanding Of Jesus’ Cry From The Cross In Mark 15:34, G. Dan Harris

G. Dan Harris

The view of Christ bearing our sins on the cross is a necessary component of various atonement theories that exist. Within these atonement theories there exists a need for God’s justice. Therefore, as Christ took these sins of mankind upon Himself, part of the experience that His humanity dealt with was genuine separation. This was not necessarily because the Father somehow had to “look away”; it was rather because mankind’s sins have created a real separation from God and a genuine experience of abandonment. Thus, Christ experienced the abandonment (separation from God) in our place and because of ...

Ellen G. White’S Life Of Christ: An Episode In The History Of Early Adventist Translation Work, Denis Kaiser Jan 2012

Ellen G. White’S Life Of Christ: An Episode In The History Of Early Adventist Translation Work, Denis Kaiser

Denis Kaiser

In the late 1880s and early 1890s a book on the life of Jesus Christ was published in various foreign languages in Europe and North America. Ellen G. White was given as the author of the book. It generally went under the English working title The Life of Christ although there never has been a published English counterpart to these foreign language editions. The circumstance of those editions raises the question of their textual basis, background, and significance. The present article shows that the Life of Christ is an adapted version of Spirit of Prophecy, vols. 2 and 3, which ...
