Well let’s be serious for a moment, we know that unregenerate, in other words those still dead in their sins cannot rightly understand the word of God. That is why unbelievers don’t take the Bible seriously, and take seriously, life evolving from sludge.

(Here’s a hint even if the entire universe were 15 Billion years old…we still wouldn’t have evolved yet.)

But I digress this post is not about evolution…well not really…it’s about the evolution of further idiocy in Hollywood. As apparently the latest idea to come across someones mind, is to make a comedy movie set one year after the Rapture.

It is to be called Rapturepalooza.

I was reading through my copy of the Evidence Bible which is a fantastic evangelistic tool that any Christian who wishes to become a soul saver for Christ should get right now when I read the note on



Questions and Objections: “I have been born again many times.”

At the end it said the following and I couldn’t have stated it any better: the difference between believing in Jesus and being Born Again is like believing in a parachute and putting one on. The difference will be seen when you jump. Evidence Bible Pg. 1343


Saved By Grace

Jesus knew that the hour had come for His Glorification, He knew that the only way to Heaven was the Cross, He knew that He had to lay down His life and He knew that He would rise again. However He had never glimpsed what He glimpsed in this moment.

Luke 22:41-44
41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw and knelt down and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but [always] Yours be done.
43 And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him in spirit.
44 And being in an agony [of mind], He prayed [all the] more earnestly and intently, and His sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon the ground. AMP

Jesus, our Lord and Savior would do whatever was needed to bring us into a right relationship with Him. He set aside His Glory and was born to die. He was born to fulfill a plan. He was born to be Crushed by God the Father for the sins of us all.

And yet up until this time He had not had a glimpse into the cup.

The cup of trembling.

The cup of the Wrath of God.

Yesterday I did a general post about the new book on Seventh Day Adventism titled The Heartbeat of Adventism: The Great Controversy in the Writings of Ellen White.

Today we are going to look at the sections of the published book and I’ll reveal a little more of the Adventist thinking in comparison to Evangelical thinking of the matter addressed by each section.

I will be Bolding what Adventists teach and Section Headings of the book and Italicizing what Biblical Christianity teaches for clarity. Sometimes I won’t even mention what Adventists believe because it would take a post all by itself, hence why Adventists need a huge BOOK to explain their Great Controversy Theme (GCT).

Section 1: Introduction: The Great Controversy Theme Is the Grand Central Theme of the Bible

Despite the fact that the main theme of the Bible is Man being created to have an eternal relationship in the grace of God. Man loosing that eternal grace filled relationship with God. And God unfolding His divine plan already in place (no plan B-Z), to bring is back into a right relationship with Him, by His own sacrifice and His own grace.

Section 2: The Great Controversy Theme Explains the Background for the Rise of Sin Suffering and Death

A GCT is not needed to explain what the Bible already clearly explains. This the Bible does and it does it in much fewer pages. In fact after the first three chapters of Genesis God felt He had given us enough information about the origin of sin to get it straight. A few other details followed but none of them change the key points of how Sin and Death entered in Genesis 1-3.




This Book will reveal the wholly unbiblical underpinnings of Seventh Day Adventism


“Understanding the theme in this book will reveal to the world the unbiblical heresy of the Adventist Church. Comparing this work to the Bible itself and what it teaches will reveal Adventism and the Great Controversy theme to be heresy of the highest order”- Ross Cooper

If you truly want to understand the heresy being perpetrated by the denomination known as Seventh Day Adventists I would recommend this book.  In fact I’d recommend this book for any Evangelical who is concerned about this so called Christian denomination and for any Adventist that is concerned that what they are being taught might in fact NOT to Biblically sound.

When FOX took over the Narnia series of films from Disney they spent less money but moved the series into 3-D with Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I saw it with a group from my church and we were thoroughly entertained if nothing else, the film certainly didn’t lack action and excitement.

However box office numbers is what runs the film making industry and domestically VotDT did not set the Box Office on fire. Made for $155 million it grossed just $24.5 on its opening weekend, and a total of $107 Million total. However as I’ve said on my secular blog international box office matters and overseas VotDT took in over $300 Million bringing it’s cumulative total in just shy of that of Prince Caspian.


Holy Spirit,

Sold Out

You are sold out, the question is who are you sold out to. The answer makes for an eternity of difference. There is after all an eternity to look forward to with either fear or nervous anticipation. And who you are sold out to when you die determines your final sale if you will along with your ultimate destination.
