I dropped my little baby boy off this morning for his first day of school and after recovering from the feeling of my heart bursting at the fact that my little man is growing up fast, I decided to walk over to the Goodwill to look for something that might work as a Halloween costume for me or Brad for the wedding I'm helping plan for my friend Melissa. I got to the store a bit too early so I wandered over to the row of metal and plastic houses for all the free apartment guides and little nickels and lo and behold, I found a Seventh Day Adventist publication. The theme for this issue is: The Treachery of the CULTS.
Coincidentally, I bought my irony meter because it goes up to 11.
This is 64 pages worth of insight into this religion that I plan to read, but the part of the magazine that bothers me already is the very back. It's a 'Your Bible Questions' section but the questions being posed are ridiculously simplistic and accommodating. Nothing challenging whatsoever:
Q. What does it mean to blaspheme the Holy Lord?Come on guys, we can come up with better questions than that. I plan on mailing a few questions in myself and I encourage you all to do the same. Let me know what your questions are too, I'd like to see what others think is a worthy question for people who are literal worsipers of the bible.
Q. If we are under grace, why must we still keep the law?
Q. What would have happened if Eve had not been tempted?
Q. When God Said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness" who else was He talking about?
Q. Does a person have to observe the Sabbath on Saturday to be a true Christian and thus be given eternal life?
Q. Is fasting a church requirement, or is it for individual needs?
Q. What is the Abyss?
