Benham claimed he didn’t know about Kayla’s marital status.
And then, in a remarkable self-inflicted wound, Benham asked the hosts if it was okay for a grown man “to date and court a young lady who is 14 years old with their parents’ consent.”“Not at my house! Benham took offense to that response because she was suggesting that knew what that girl needed better than the girl’s own parents.
As mentioned above, the SDA Church uses the word "Trinity" (once--as the title of belief #2) in their current official statement of 28 "Fundamental Beliefs" (although in some instances, the statement of beliefs is published with the word "Godhead" substituted for the word "Trinity"). 14:7.)" ( At first glance many may think that this statement appears to be orthodox-sounding.
Here is belief number 2, as found at the official SDA website (adventist.org): "2. But we must investigate further to see what they actually mean by this statement.
The Mormons will also use the term Trinity, as does modalist preacher T. They have simply redefined Christian terms--and so have the Mormons, T. Jakes, and the Seventh-day Adventists, with regard to the term "Trinity." In fact, as we will see later on, even the SDA Church's own theologians/scholars admit that Adventism teaches a different "Trinity" doctrine than the historical, orthodox Christian doctrine of the Trinity.
God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present. The statement can make evangelical Christians believe they are orthodox, while at the same time meaning something different within Adventism.Here is a hint of their teaching that "God" is a group/"trio" of three "divine Beings," which we will see more of later.At first glance, the Fundamental Belief statement may appear to at least be compatible with orthodoxy.Eventually, "the Holy Spirit" got added into this "Godhead" as one of "three living persons of the heavenly trio"1 and one of "the three holiest Beings in heaven"2--and the current SDA teaching of Tritheism (that there are three divine beings in "the Godhead" who are "one" only in purpose, character, etc.) was born.In other words, Adventism's teaching of polytheism is foundational, fundamental, and continuing--and goes deep into the roots/foundation of Adventism, which was established by their "pioneers" (including their prophetess Ellen G. The SDA Church gradually adopted the use of the term "Trinity" to describe this tritheistic view of the Godhead, eventually culminating in the official General Conference session endorsement, in 1946, of a statement of beliefs that incorporated the word "Trinity."3 Beginning in 1980, the SDA Church finally stated (although, in reality, disingenuously as we'll see later) in their official statement of "Fundamental Beliefs" that Christ is "eternal."4 So while they now, officially, use the term "Trinity," in reality they deny the Trinity and actually teach Tritheism, just like the Mormons do. But that does not make any of them Trinitarian, any more than the Jehovah's Witnessess using the terms "Jesus Christ" or "Son of God" means that they believe in the real Jesus of the Bible.
