Is the Father the Source of Christ's Life?

by Leo John Yoro

I'm sharing this article written by Leo John Yoro because I thought it explains this Ellen White quote very well. - Joel Ridgeway “All things Christ received from God, but He took to give. So in the heavenly courts, in His ministry for all created beings: through the beloved Son, the Father’s life flows out to all; through the Son it returns, in praise and joyous service, a tide of love, to the great Source of all.”   E. G. White, The Desire of Ages, p. 21 Ou...

The Counsel of Peace “Between Them Both”

by Joel Ridgeway

Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both. Zecheriah 6:13  If the Holy Spirit is a person, why does this verse say that the counsel of peace is between “them both”, which literally means “two of them”? Doesn't this imply that the Holy Spirit is not number three? Answer: The counsel o...

A. T. Jones Accepts the Personhood of the Holy Spirit

by Joel Ridgeway

Recently I came across a very clear defence of the personhood of the Holy Spirit, written by A. T. Jones. This was published in 1907 and is a great example of how the Pioneers progressed in their understanding of the Godhead. I was so impressed by it, that I am including it here for you to read.  CHRISTIANITY in all that in itself it is, contemplates only a Person. It has its origin only in a Person. It comes to men only from a Person. It is given to men only by a Person. It is sustained ...

Two LORDs at the Destruction of Sodom

by Joel Ridgeway

Most of us are very familiar with the story on Genesis 19 of the destruction of Sodom. But while studying this chapter again, I discovered something I hadn't seen before. The story line goes like this: 3 men come to visit Abraham: two are angels, and the other is Jesus Christ Himself. They reveal to Abraham that they are going to destroy Sodom and Abraham starts pleading with "the LORD" to save Sodom. The other two angels leave and go directly to Sodom. They stay with Lot and ev...

Can We Have Original Unborrowed, Underived Life?

by Joel Ridgeway

As a former Anti-trinitarian, I used to believe that Christ received His life from the Father at some point far back in the ages of eternity. One quote that disagreed with this conclusion was Desire of Ages 530: “In Christ is life, original, unborrowed, underived.” To find a way around this quote, I used to quote Selected Messages Volume 1, page 296: “In Him (Christ) was life, original, unborrowed, underived. This life is not inherent in man. He can possess it ...

Ellen White’s Usage of the word “Son of God”

by Joel Ridgeway

Does Ellen White’s use of the Word “Son of God” before the incarnation prove that He was literally the Son in a biological sense, before the incarnation? When did Christ become “Jesus”? Mat 1:21  She will bear a son, and you shall  call his name Jesus , for he will save his people from their sins.” Luk 1:31  And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall  call his name Jesus. Answer: Christ w...

What did Christ mean when He said the Father was “the only true God”?

by Joel Ridgeway

Let’s first understand what He did not mean. Christ did not mean that He is not the only true God. Why? Consider the following: The only way Christ can fully reveal the Father to us is if He is  also  the only true God. Christ called God all throughout the Bible. If He is not also the only true God, there are only two other options: either He is a lessor God or He is a false god. Christ is called “equal” with God. If He is equal, then He is also the only t...
