Is it possible you are taking things out of context?

O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!
Walter Scott

Our goal is purely to help you untangle the mess the Seventh Day Adventists have made of the Bible.

Proof-texting involves finding verses that support your beliefs and interpreting them as such. Verses or parts of them are taken out of context and rearranged to create new beliefs or doctrines. This is how Adventism was created using presuppositions and assumptions. Let’s walk through them together.

Line upon line Isaiah 28:10

Let’s start with the method you are taught to study the Bible.

The way you study the Bible is taken out of context. This is a CLEAR warning to Israel for being led by drunks. Israel’s leaders laughed at the idea that Isaiah would teach them like babies taken from their mothers. “Line upon line” taught Israel’s children Hebrew characters. A foreign nation will come to destroy a disobedient Israel. God’s discipline is like teaching kids the Hebrew alphabet.

What is the result of Israel’s drunk leadership? “so that they will stumble and fall. They will be injured, trapped, and captured”.

This passage is NOT giving you a Biblical Method of studying the Bible.

Isaiah 28:1,3,7-18,22-23 NLT
What sorrow awaits the proud city of Samaria— the glorious crown of the drunks of Israel. It sits at the head of a fertile valley, but its glorious beauty will fade like a flower. It is the pride of a people brought down by wine. [3] The proud city of Samaria— the glorious crown of the drunks of Israel— will be trampled beneath its enemies’ feet. [7] Now, however, Israel is led by drunks who reel with wine and stagger with alcohol. The priests and prophets stagger with alcohol and lose themselves in wine. They reel when they see visions and stagger as they render decisions. [8] Their tables are covered with vomit; filth is everywhere. [9] “Who does the LORD think we are?” they ask. “Why does he speak to us like this? Are we little children, just recently weaned? [10] He tells us everything over and over— one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there!” [11] So now God will have to speak to his people through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language! [12] God has told his people, “Here is a place of rest; let the weary rest here. This is a place of quiet rest.” But they would not listen. [13] So the LORD will spell out his message for them again, one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there, so that they will stumble and fall. They will be injured, trapped, and captured. [14] Therefore, listen to this message from the LORD, you scoffing rulers in Jerusalem. [15] You boast, “We have struck a bargain to cheat death and have made a deal to dodge the grave. The coming destruction can never touch us, for we have built a strong refuge made of lies and deception.” [16] Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken. [17] I will test you with the measuring line of justice and the plumb line of righteousness. Since your refuge is made of lies, a hailstorm will knock it down. Since it is made of deception, a flood will sweep it away. [18] I will cancel the bargain you made to cheat death, and I will overturn your deal to dodge the grave. When the terrible enemy sweeps through, you will be trampled into the ground. [22] For the Lord, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, has plainly said that he is determined to crush the whole land. So scoff no more, or your punishment will be even greater. [23] Listen to me; listen, and pay close attention.

We Uphold the Law

Here is the verse WITHOUT context.

Romans 3:31 CSB
Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! On the contrary, we uphold the law.

And, with context… The reason the Law is given is to show us our sinfulness. How can we display the POWER of the Gospel if we don’t show people their sinfulness and their NEED for a Savior? Of course, we uphold the Law for this very reason!

Romans 3:19-30 NLT
Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it was given, for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses, and to show that the entire world is guilty before God. [20] For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are. [21] But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. [22] We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. [23] For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. [24] Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. [25] For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, [26] for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus. [27] Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. [28] So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law. [29] After all, is God the God of the Jews only? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles? Of course he is. [30] There is only one God, and he makes people right with himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.
