  1. Can you do a video contrasting SDA view of the atonement? SDA falsely teach the sins of the saints were transferred to heaven at the cross and have polluted the heavenly sanctuary until 1844 When Christ moved into the Most Holy Place. Since then they teach Christ has been going through the books to see who is worthy of eternal life. Conversely the Bible teaches Christ completed the atonement at the cross. Jesus at the cross said it is finished and the curtain in the temple was torn making the way clear for Jesus as High priest to enter the Most Holy and make the atonement once for all time. The Bible is clear he has been at the right hand of God in the Most Holy Place ever since.
    God Bless your ministry Luke.

  2. Thank you for making the database…your work is much appreciated. I am a deacon serving in Word and Sacrament ministry and hope to begin my seminary journey soon. These videos really help me. Thanks again and God bless!

  3. SDA:s are premillennialists, but their version of premillennialism is rather different from dispensationalism:
    -SDA:s generally have a historicist approach to Bible prophecy,
    -SDA:s do not believe in a pre-trib rapture,
    -SDA:s do not identify the 70th week of Daniel with a future "tribulation"
    -SDA:s do not believe in Christian Zionism, but rather that the church is God's true people.
    -SDA:s do not believe the millennium will take place on earth, but rather in Heaven.

  4. Question Pastor: Since the Ceremonial Laws have been abrogated through Christ, and since these laws dealt with the 'when and how' worship was conducted, wouldn't the Lord's Day be, essentially, 'ceremonial' too since the element of worship dictates a 'when' (Sunday) and 'how' (Liturgical Mass) theology to it as well? Although the Lord's Day isn't scriptural, if it's a fulfillment of the ceremonial Day of Rest, why does it's elements convey the same rules?
