The Seventh-Day Adventist Movement: finishing the Protestant Reformation and recovering the true gospel of Christ.

Our evangelical Christian doctrines must be continually held up to the word of God lest we run aground on the rocks of legalism on the one hand or the reef of antinomianism on the other. We all ought to confess that in our continually maturing understanding of the word of God, the bible, we need to be the "church reformed and continually reforming" (ecclesia reformata semper reformanda). In other words, we all have many things to learn and many, many things to unlearn.

Open Theism: Open theism is the Christian doctrine that the future is not set in concrete and not totally predetermined and settled. Although this undeniable bible truth is considered to be heresy by many Calvinist, and even some Arminian theologians, the bible clearly affirms that God is able, and in fact does, change His mind and alter His course of action in history when sinners respond to the Holy Spirit's call to repent and call upon Christ for forgiveness.

As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Ezekiel 33:11
