Which two questions? Thanks.::Rolls eyes::
And what does this have to do with the price of tea in China? This is exactly what I predicted you'd do:
ATTN. ONLURKERS: I can guarantee that neither of my last two questions will be answered in any sort of biblical manner. Former Adventists and critics of Adventism mock and deride Adventists claiming we rely on an extra biblical source of authority (i.e. Ellen White). Yet I never appeal to White to make a defense of any biblical doctrine and I've not seen any other Adventist on this forum who does that. The critics are the ones who elevate their own opinions above a plain, "Thus saith the Lord." They are the ones who are denigrating the Word of God by their rejections and denials of simple and plainly communicated ideas. This is why people become "former Adventists." They place a higher value on their own ideas than on what the Bible teaches.
Your response is an attempt at deflection. You can't engage the premise biblically, so you throw out two random quotes which have nothing to do with each other or with the topic at hand. It's bizarre and sad.
