Toward An Adventist Theology Of Refugees, Nicholas Miller, Janna Quetz Sep 2019

Toward An Adventist Theology Of Refugees, Nicholas Miller, Janna Quetz

Nicholas Miller

"The Bible encourages God’s people to help immigrants, and does not leave it up to just the state, but says the people of God should personally help them. Whatever path is taken in the future it is important to keep in mind that Christ calls us brothers, and we too should call the sojourner within our gates brother. Immigration policy is complex, and there may be no clear guidance from God’s Word on parts of it. But whatever policies are arrived at, the Christian has a role to advocate for the creation and implementation of a humane and ...


Critical Contextualization: A Case Study Of Lobi Funeral Rites In Burkina Faso, Boubakar Sanou Aug 2019

Critical Contextualization: A Case Study Of Lobi Funeral Rites In Burkina Faso, Boubakar Sanou

Boubakar Sanou

"It is very difficult to be relevant in our Christian witness if we do not know and address the issues with which the people we are trying to reach are wrestling. For the gospel to meaningfully engage recipients with the purpose of transforming their worldviews, Christian witnesses must always encode the biblical message in such a way that its content remains faithful to biblical principles but also makes sense to its receptors in terms of its relevance. Such new experiences often challenge them in their social location. The rationale for this is that because the gospel is always received from ...


The Meaning Of The Intercessory Ministry Of Jesus Christ On Our Behalf In The Heavenly Sanctuary, Jiri Moskala Thd, Phd Oct 2018

The Meaning Of The Intercessory Ministry Of Jesus Christ On Our Behalf In The Heavenly Sanctuary, Jiri Moskala Thd, Phd

Jiri Moskala

"Christ’s intercessory ministry is twofold: He reveals God’s character and His values to humanity, and presents our needs, struggles, and issues to God. The Triune God closely collaborates in this double mission. A decision for Jesus Christ means complete salvation—eternal life (Heb 7:25), and He is always ready to help (1 John 2:1; 1:8-9)."


Misinterpreted End-Time Issues: Five Myths In Adventism, Jiri Moskala Thd, Phd Oct 2018

Misinterpreted End-Time Issues: Five Myths In Adventism, Jiri Moskala Thd, Phd

Jiri Moskala

"realize that my unpleasant Christian experience was built on five misunderstandings which assumed that the Bible and/or the Spirit of Prophecy: (1) teach that believers will only receive the seal of God at the end of time; (2) stand against the assurance of salvation; (3) affirm that living believers can be called and examined in the pre-advent judgment at any time; (4) proclaim that after the close of probation the Holy Spirit will be removed from the earth meaning that even believers will be without any supernatural help; and (5) declare that believers in Jesus Christ will be on ...

Adventist Theological-Missiology: Contextualization In Mission And Ministry, Wagner Kuhn Sep 2017

Adventist Theological-Missiology: Contextualization In Mission And Ministry, Wagner Kuhn

Wagner Kuhn

"...the purpose of theology and mission is to demonstrate in word and deed, in theory and in practice, the everlasting gospel (Rev. 14). It is to aim at the cross of Calvary, declaring and presenting with power and effectiveness the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (Jn.1:29). Paul demonstrates this theology and this mission by getting as close as possible to people in order to save them for Christ. He says: “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some” (1 Cor. 9:22 ...

The Nineteenth-Century Context Of The Seventh-Day Adventist Health Message, Wendy Jackson Oct 2016

The Nineteenth-Century Context Of The Seventh-Day Adventist Health Message, Wendy Jackson

Wendy Jackson

The health message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is often considered in isolation from the nineteenth century trends and events in which it arose. However, an understanding of this context is vital to any discussion of the relationship between Seventh-day Adventists health practices and science. This paper thus examines the social, political, religious and medical milieu of that time. It focuses particularly on the considerable overlap between religion and health which increased the receptivity of the individuals to the articulation of health principles by a religious organization.

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 ...
