just another proof you are not "in Christ"
When I was corresponding with him, I often deleted the words "in Christ" in his sig line. He did not like it, but my message was clear.: He (like other SDAs) is enslaved to following the wacky rules of Ellen instead of enjoying the freedom and grace we find in Christ alone.
They have a a strange rubric to describe that freedom:
it is almost as if George Orwell (1984) wrote that response because it is basically saying the evil of rules following is a good thing, but the freedom we have in Jesus Christ is a bad thing.
They are also straining at gnats in order to swallow a whole camel, meaning Ellen and her aberrant theology.
Even when posters make direct quotes of the many heresies of Ellen, they seem unable to process the differences between what the Bible states clearly, and what Ellen denies. What they come up with as "rebuttals" are inane personal insults devoid of Scriptural context.
They are to be pitied because instead of enjoying the love and freedom in the grace of Jesus Christ, they somehow morph that into "slavery to Satan" as is demonstrated in the quote above.
