Why Christians are not standing up for Palestinian people

January 3, 2009

I am supportive of Palestinian people and I feel sorry about them but in the same time want to express my sadness about acts of Islamic fundamentalist regimes.

Saudi Arabia, Iran, Algeria, Egypt and simmilar countires are systematicaly imprisonig, torturing and basically killing Christians, either directly or by not preventing such acts of terror and intimidation.

Therefore when Chrstians see that their brothers are killed and intimidated, they are not willing to stand up in support of Palestinian people becouse of its unity with radical Islam.

Rami Ayyad, director of the Protestant Holy Bible Society has been martyer for operating Christian bookstore in Gaza, even worse he has been killed by fellow Palestinians.

His murderers have never been brought to justice.

If Palestinian people are ready to welcome Christian aid organisation and peaceful anti-war Christian activists, first they have to stop killing Christians.

I mean, they don’t have to, but then they will have to stand up alone against Israeli occupation.

I as a Christian would be more then ready to go to Gaza and stand up together with Palestinian people. but if Palestinians kill me becouse Im Christian I’m not gonna do so.

Another thing is that when pro-Pal activists protest in Western countries they must avoid using slogans like “La Illahu il Allah”, and simmilar becouse on that way non-muslim pro-Palestinian protesters are feeling distanced from the gathering, becouse they have nothing to do with islam, and came there becouse of Palestinian people, not Islam.

Another group of people that Palestinians should definetly stop killing are Palestinian woman

Murdered in name of family honour

Killing Palestinian Christians will also not help palestinian cause, check this out!

Muslim ‘Palestinians’ firebomb Christian ‘Palestinians’

Reverend Tomey Dahoud, head of the Greek Orthodox Church in Taubus, a city near Jenin, agreed. “The Islamic people want to kill us. That’s their principle and belief. They don’t want Christians in this country. They don’t want to hear our names; they don’t want to see us. That’s the reality.” His church was firebombed in the September 2006 riots.” (link)

Also, regarding article – “West Bank Churches Burned in Light of Muslim Anger Over Papal Comments

I think that you don’t have a problem with Christian people but with Pope of Rome, you can’t blame whole Christinity for that madman comments.

Check out this one – “Palestinian Gunmen Threaten Bethlehem Christmas Preparations, Fuel Christian Flight“.

As i said before, i have nothing against Palestinian people, I love them and I want to stand up for them, but as long as Islamic extremists keep killing Christians, I will not do that. If Palestinian People don’t want Christian support, it’s ok for me, but it is Israel who profits then, not Palestinian people, nor Christians.

I hope you see where problem is.

Stop hating Chrstians, stop killing them, stop intimidating them, and then we will stand up together.


Paul Washer’s amazing sermon on repentance

November 20, 2008

I am Seventh-day Adventist. Im not Southern Baptist, but I stand up now and say that what Washer said in his message on repentance is the truth.

Unless people turn away from sin they will never be saved. Real faith in Jeus Christ is always followed by repentance. That is a truth that is easy to understand but hard to implement.

“What you need to know is that salvation is by faith, and faith alone in Jesus Christ. And faith alone in Jesus Christ is preceded and followed by repentance — a turning away from sin, a hatred for the things that God hates and a love for the things that God loves, a growing in holiness and a desire — not to be like Britney Spears, not to be the like world, and not to be like the great majority of American Christians; but to be like Jesus Christ.” – see whole sermon


Each one of us should implement those words in our lifes. Go forward, dnt look back 🙂

People of California rejected gay marriages!

November 6, 2008

Having a gay lifestyle is condemned by Bible. However there are those who consider sodomy “nothing unusual”. Therefor it is duty of free people to resist such legislation that is allowing gay marriages.

Great youtube videos!

Sunday observance in Acts 20,7-13?

November 1, 2008

“And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together. And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed. And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted. And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so had he appointed, minding himself to go afoot.” (Acts 20, 7-13)

1. The meeting was probably on Saturday night (see notice)*
2. Paul traveled away after the meeting
3. They met in evening because Paul spoke “even till break of day”
4. Paul broke the bread after midnight (Paul broke it after boy felt and it was far into night then)
5. Paul spoke becouse he planned to go next day

Question is if that gathering was “good bye” meeting before Paul went away, because they gathered on night before he went away and spent time together until morning when Paul went away.

Or it was usual to meet at night, divide bread after midnight and have meeting until early morning by early Church.

Second, read Acts 27, 33-38; you will realise that “breaking bread” doesn’t necceserily means “Lord’s supper”.

My point is following, the evening meeting until sunrise in Acts 20,7-13 equal if it was “Lord supper” or just “agape” (friendly) meeting by the church in Troas (Acts 20, 6) definitely was connected with the fact that Paul planned to depart that following morning, not with Sunday observance.

It’s obvious from text that circumstances of gathering (late night till break of day), and fact that Paul went away after that gathering, it was not “ordinary” meeting.

To claim that apostolic church used to gather on Sunday, based on this single verse is nonsense to me, it’s obscure understanding of Scriptures.

Peter and Paul were both Jews and they knew not another day of rest but the Sabbath day (Saturday). Although Jesus probably resurrected on Sunday, he never gave any instructions about 4th commandment change, spoke about sanctification of the first day of the week, or instructed his followers to switch Saturday gathering with Sunday gathering.

To claim that Sunday observance (or Sunday gathering) comes from Peter and Paul is ridiculus. Everyone knows that Sunday worship came from pagan Rome and Babylon.

Sun+day = Sunday, weekly day of the [God of the] Sun, pagan emperor Constantine (while he was still pagan) even made Sunday “Blue law” (prohibited work on Sunday)
Christmas = chosen to coincide with ancient Roman pagan solar festivals that were held on December 25.

To claim that either Sunday observance or Christmas celebration came from Jesus or Paul the Apostle is simply non-biblical.

* Saturday night is evening part of the first day of the Jewish week, same is in the Catholic liturgy – “In Roman Catholicism liturgy, Sunday begins on Saturday evening. The evening Mass on Saturday is liturgically a full Sunday Mass and fulfils the obligation of Sunday Mass attendance” (link)

Rev. Ian Paisley gives solution to global financial crisis

October 17, 2008

In the time of uncertainty, there is certainty. Jesus is Lord and he is soon to be back. that is known by mr. Paisley a man who dares to speak the truth in any occasion. he has popular support and was even a member of European Parliament, UK House of Commons, and a First Minister of Northern Ireland Assembly.

He fears not those who oppose God, he was the one who dared to call Pope by his real name when he came to European Parliament in 1988, he feared not the opposition within European Parliament, nor from outside.

In the time of market collapse, he openly called Parliament members to repent and pray. His Church is really a Protestant denomination, not just by name, but by the doctrine as well, especially eschatology.

I wish to see him in Heaven and have a friendly talk with him. He is a person of great spirit who fears not nor the Devil, nor the Devil’s associates. He is a man of faith that lives by faith.

Long live mr. Paisley I wish i could see you in live and hear you’re sermon not just via speakers.

Sabbath keeping abolished? (Colossians 2:14-17)

October 10, 2008

“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days. Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” (Col 2,14-17)

Now what is problem with this text, some try to say (by this verses) that God’s Law (The Ten Commandments) was nailed to the cross (i.e. jehovah Witnesses), it’s important to notice that Paul here speaks about ordinances, not the commandments.

A New Testament study on the word “ordinance” as used in Colossians 2:14 reveals that the word is from the Greek “dogma” and refers to man written rules and regulations, not God’s. Throughout the New Testament where “ordinances” has been translated from “dogma,” the meaning is a civil, ceremonial, or ecclesiastical law, Strong’s Greek Dictionary No. 1378. The word has been used in only five other places in the New Testament and always refers to man-written laws.

If one were to say that these blotted-out ordinances were the Law of God, then we would be living in a totally lawless society. We are told in 1 John 3:4 that sin is the transgressing of the law. If we take away the law, we have nothing left to transgress; consequently, there is no sin.

When we come to verse 16 we understand on what kind of ordinances he speaks about, if we trust what Bible says, they are to do with:

a) meat

b) drink

c) holyday

d) new moon

e) sabbath days

Obviously these ordinances were in connection with the law of Moses. How can we know that? Bible speaks about it!

“For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.” (Hebrews 10,1-4)

About which law does Paul talk when he speaks about ordinances (v. 14), meat, drink, holyday, new moon, sabbath days (v. 16) and  sacrifices and goes on to say that they were “shadow of things to come” (v. 17)? It’s obvious that he speaks about the “law of Moses” and not about the Law of God – Ten commandments, that help us realize what the sin is (Rom 3,20)

Now the question comes, when Paul speaks about “sabbath days” (plural) is he speaking about the law of Moses, which was given after the fall in sin, with it’s many ordinances (including many yearly sabbath days), or about the “sabbath day” (singular) which was part of the God’s Law (Ten commandments) that existed long before those ordinances were given and which defines what the sin is?

Look at this! When God in Exodus 16 wanted to see if His people will obey His Law or not, he checked it out with Sabbath commandment. On sixth day they had twice as mana as usually, so they didn’t need to gather mana on Saturday (Sabbath).

This happened long before God gave to Moses list of holidays in Leviticus 23. Those holidays were known as yearly “sabbath days” (plural) and included “passover” (v. 5), “the feast of unleavened bread” (v. 6), “pentecost” (v.16), “day of atonement” (v. 27), “the feast of tabernacles” (v. 34) and were indeed part of the law of Moses, which was written by man, fulfilled in Christ and no more binding for Christians.

Those sabbath days have had only symbolic purpose, Christ was the perfect passover lamb, and he was the one who made real atonement. These holidays, “sabbath days” indeed were “a shadow of things to come”, just as were sacrifices which priests “offer continually year by year” as Paul says. This things were poinitng toward Jesus Christ and were just shadow, when the perfect Lamb came those “ordinances” lost their purpose.

However the “ordinances” were not “Ten commandments“, nor those yearly “sabbath days” are weekly “sabbath day“.

Many Christians today believe that “Ten commandments” are still in charge, I am the one of them. God never spoke about 10% discount so I keep the 4th commandment too (the one about sabbath). “God’s law” (which is perfect by the way) is still binding for Christians.

However we are not saved by keeping it. The Law tells us what sin is, and when we realise that we broke it we also relize that we need mercy. if there was no Law to condemn us, there would be no need for mercy.

Question that comes is following. Can we live in lawlessness and have assurance of salvation? God says no. The reason why jesus says that in the time just before he comes back there will be massive lawlessness is not the fact that Law was no more binding, but that people have rejected it. Many of whome were Christians.

Faith in Christ comes with obedience not lawlessness. If you want to be saved we need to  “repent, and believe in the good news.” (Mark 1:15), not just believe. Ofcourse God is the one that helps us to get rid of sins in our life, we don’t do it in our strength but in his.

Remember: “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.” (1. John 3, 3-6)

John didn’t speak about beeing saved by keeping the Law, he spoke about the fact that those who are really in Christ, live according to God’s Law, not in lawlessness. later he explains that it is impossible to live in sins and in the same time be considered as a child of God. God wants you to repent and sin no more, no mather on what other people tell you.

Christians who reject Sabbath comandment simply ignore all this facts, and turn a blind eye toward this few verses and their context. One by one they websites use Col 2,14 to prove that Ten commandments are abolished (i.e. bible.ca), and Col 2,16 to prove that weekly Sabbath is no more to be kept (i.e. jesus-is-lord.com). However, understanding these verses on such a way has no basis in Scriptures and could, without a doubt be called “twisting” of God’s word.

There is even a gay Christian website (?!?!) that claims that Sabbath observance is no more, becouse of Jewish law (Law of Moses) is no more http://www.gaychristian101.com/Sabbath-keeping.html

Sexual abuse within the Seventh-day Adventist Church

October 9, 2008

First of all I was shocked to realise that there is child abuse within our church, however it is a sad reality that among us there are even child molesters.

I never met one, nor I heard for one in my conference, but have heard about one in another one that was fired after allegations.

My personal opinion is that a person who actually did abuse anybodey ONCE, for example he is a clerigy-man should immidiatly be put out of job and reported to police.

Why? There has to be zero tolerance for such cases, becouse once you start to pass over it, abuser feels safe and abuses again. Also there MUST BE NOT coverup of such case. Why? becouse NT instructs us not to participate in works of darkness, rather to expose them.

Worst case scenario is if a person is abusing and Church is silencing the victim, and protecting abuser. Why? Becouse then sooner or later, TRUTH will come out. TRUTH can not be hidded for a long time, it comes out. I guess it’s obvious that it is disgusting in God’s eyes if you do such stuff.

If abuser is clerigy man

a) not 100% shure he in fact molestor



b) 100% shure that child has been molested



If person is layman, do the same!

I repeat, if you act on that way, no shame and no lawsuits against the Church will be made, if you turn a blind eye, you will face legal judgement, from both federal judge, and Jesus Christ.

Sexual abuse is not internal Church matter, it is a matter of criminal investigation, trial and verdict. it’s not shame that there are molesters within our Church, the shame is if Church is hiding those molestors from justice.

What happenes if you don’t react? Remember Pitcairn island and massive abuse that was going on there, Church was silent, and pastors said they knew nothing about it. But was it really so? I can hardly imagine. However it is important to notice that in that case, no pastor was involved, it was layman who were abusers. What to do then…? Just go to police!

James Likoudis – estranged Catholic who likes irrational and unbiblical explanations

October 7, 2008

When I read his writings I was deeply disturbed. I haven’t seen someone twisting God’s word so much since I read Catholic Cathecism.

His works are based on traditions of man. Man he indeed follows and that man is Pope of Rome, not Jesus Christ from Nazareth. However his writings are hostile toward Protestantism as a whole, not just Adventists particulary, check out what he wrote ( http://credo.stormloader.com/Reviews/diesdomi.htm ):

“The point I make to you is that the Apostolic Tradition concerning Sunday worship by Christians and practiced from the earliest days of the Church has once again been set forth by the present Bishop of Rome who exercises the Petrine ministry in our time. That Apostolic Tradition (remember St. Paul saying to ‘ hold fast to the traditions we have been taught ‘) has been preserved in the Catholic Church — and to their credit most Protestants continue to adhere to it, despite their illogical rejection of Apostolic Tradition.

What he tried to say was a mixture of truths and lies (that is the most toxic combination). First he explains that Sunday worship is based on “Apostolic Tradition” (Not Bible alone), and goes on to saying that some Protestans observe Sunday “despite their illogical rejection of Apostolic Tradition”.

Let’s examine his words carefully

First he says that Sunday worship is based on “Apostolic Tradition”. However I have a huge problem with that. Why? because Catholic Church has nothing to do with Apostolic Church, nor Catholic Tradition has anything to do with what Peter and Paul wrote or said.

Second – Apostolic Church that Paul, Peter, John and Matthew were members knew nothing about Sunday as a day of rest. Why? Many reasons, First of all they were all Jews, and to them no other day of rest was known except Sabbath (Saturday). Second, not less important is that Jesus never spoke about switching the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday. Also, important to mention is that “Sunday worship” came to Christianity from paganism, and not from Peter’s and Paul’s words or writings.

Third Bishop of Rome DOES NOT exercises the Petrine ministry in our time

ForthThe fact that Protestants reject most of Catholic Tradition (which Catholic Church likes to call “Apostolic”, although it’s not) is perfectly logic, not illogic as he tries to explain.

I guess this has been enough for today:))

However James Likoudis has authored several books dealing with sex education, the Eastern Orthodox church and liturgical issues. I guess he should have stopped right there, but as you know he went further to prove unprovable, that Roman Church has authority to change Commandments of God with traditions of man, purgatory and many other uniquely Catholic inventions. Sad truth is that once he will meet with the Lord he will realise that his soul is not immortial, despite what Pope said! I guess he will qoute Catechism of Catholic Church then, and try to explain to Jesus that Catholic tradition is part of God’s word.

Reality for him on Judgement Day will be harsh, masses and prayers for him after his death were in vain, and no Church will be able to redeem his soul.

If you’re thinking like mr. Likoudis think twice while you’re still alive, after death might be too late!

If you like to hear more trash talk from mr. Likoudis and you’re Seventh-day Adventist in the same time, read his whole letter made specially for us! ( http://www.ewtn.com/library/ANSWERS/LETADVEN.htm )

Here are some of his claims:)

it is indeed on the authority of the Catholic Church that Sunday was substituted for the Sabbath for the worship of the Blessed Trinity. One can try to argue that this was wrong on the basis of certain scriptural allegations, but it is useless to try and use Scripture against the Church whose Scriptures they are.” (my comment – hahaha)

this one sounds more serious:

“what else could that Church be but infallible”

“The Pope comes with the Church since he is the visible head of the Church on earth.”

It is true that the Church cannot change the moral law of God as found in the Commandments, but as the infallible teachers of the new Christian Church (the “teach-ye-all-nations” Church soon to be termed the Catholic Church by the year A.D. 107), they could and did change the time, the motive, and details of the Sunday observance.”

When Ellen WHite said that Catholicism will never change, she was indeed correct. Catholicism didn’t change, nor our view of it should.

(PS: I have nothing about ordinary Roman Catholics, I was Roman Catholic myself)

Dies Domini – a group presenting false Christ, false gospel and false dialogue

September 27, 2008

Their website made me wonder. I thought they were friendly oriented toward our denomination. But in fact I found quite otherwise.

It’s bizzare what they do, they even put some “testimonies” from Adventists that have realized  that Catholic Church was the true Church, Pope is truly holy father, purgatory truly exists, Sunday is Christian Sabbath and many other unbiblical (and/or irrational) doctrines.

Catholic Church keeps calling us sect, preaching hate toward adventists. I will just qoute what Catholic Church says about us ( http://www.catholic.com/library/Seventh_Day_Adventism.asp )

“But there’s more to this unique sect.” they say!

“Unfortunately, they also hold many false and strange doctrines. Among these are the following: (a) the Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon; (b) the pope is the Antichrist; (c) in the last days, Sunday worship will be “the mark of the beast”; (d) there is a future millennium in which the devil will roam the earth while Christians are with Christ in heaven; (e) the soul sleeps between death and resurrection; and (f) on the last day, after a limited period of punishment in hell, the wicked will be annihilated and cease to exist rather than be eternally damned.”

NIHIL OBSTAT: I have concluded that the materials
presented in this work are free of doctrinal or moral errors.

This thing is official. This is what they really say about us. This is the way they make fun with what we believe “they also hold many false and strange doctrines” they say about us! That is their true view of our Church and our beliefs!!!

But real problem from Dies Domini group is with the spirit they have received in Catholic Church, the spirit that has taken them over and instructed them to believe and teach the doctrines of demons.

Just as some join the Church of the God’s Remnant in these last days some go back to the Catholicism. Just in short – the way to catholicism is a way to hell, we should not hide that or prevent people from knowing that. Truth must be known and preached.

I am a former Catholic myself, God Almighty set me free from that false religious system based on human traditions and twisting God’s word.

It is clear that Roman Catholic Church has not changed their views of us, maintaining their sectarian doctrine and spirit toward our Church.

There was a number of meetings between Seventh day Adventist and Catholic theologians including now Cardinal Walter Kasper and Msgr John Radano. A short report by Ángel Manuel Rodríguez was released, chek it out!


My personal opinion? No dialogue with Roman Catholicism until they change their negative view and attitude toward Adventist Church. They don’t want to change it? No propblem! No dialoge then!

Evolution is science fiction

September 26, 2008

We Adventists believe that God created us as we are. Monkey didn’t come from horse, horses didn’t come from reptiles, nor humans came from monkeys.

There are no millions of years, there are just a few thousnd (around six) that humans are inhabiting this world.

Evolution science is based on fraud and twisting facts. I was evolutionst my self before I came to Christ. I remember in my geography class when I wondered how could horses turn into whales by coming into the water. There is no one single transitional form between horses and whales.

So why did I believe in evolution? I had no knowledge of otherwise. I was living in sin, but still looking for truth. However once I encountered all the evidence of creation (counter evolution) I decided to follow that simple truth.

God created us, not by millions of yers from various animals and transtional forms, but “of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life” (Gen 2,7). That is the way we were created.

I’m happy that I belong to a Christian denomination that belives that Bible is a truth, not a fairy tale. Funny thing happened with my father, he was resisting the Gospel all the time, until one day I came home and I saw him watching my creationst videos that I left on cupboard. I never told him about it, when I saw him watching that I was astoneshed. Next few days we spoke about it, he acknowledged that Bible was right about it, and that evolution theory simply has no evidence.

It was even funnier when I came to him one day and saw him reading Bible, he was laughing while reading it. I asked him what is so funny about Bible, he said that it’s funny how God mixed their languages in Babylon.

When I heard it, I was laughing like idiot, I couldn’t believe what I just heard. it was my own father that resisted God’s word so many times. Not long after that he said Jesus is the truth and that it is not OK to live in sin. And that we should trust God. So many things changed since than, we speak about Jesus and salvation, and it all started with one DVD. Praise the Lord!!!

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11,3)

” For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1 Timothy 2, 13-14)

Did Paul really meant what he wrote, or should we say he was not thinking literally when he wrote those letters? Should we trust Moses and prophets (Luke 16,31)?

“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.” (1 Corinthians 15,22-23)

Those people didn’t believe in “theistic evolution”, as Catholic Church does. Should I believe there was a real flood in Noah times or is that just a myth? Whome should I trust was the question I asked my self before I went out of Catholicism. Jesus or Pope?

I decided to trust Jesus what about you?
