this is a very simple yet subtle deception in terms of impression and perception that leads to self boastful claim in the latter time… You may study how the person( who said Bible and SOP are not related to salvation) express his ideas. It is not 100% but the manifestations are there. not to judge but psychologically speaking. And we can’t blame him since every idea has its roots and as being influenced. So we know about it. we can tell the it is related. though it did not save us. To say that “spirit of prophecy and bible” is related to salvation – we don’t destroy the position that God only is the one who saves and that salvation comes only from him. and that salvation is by grace alone through faith. we don’t destroy sda position by our claim that it is highly related. That idea is a result of a mixture “once save always saved.” psychologically speaking it will affect the way you conduct your behavior. Even as atheist I can tell you that sir. So you sda guys be careful. Our pioneers have already dealt this issue.. if hes an intellectual person with a good sense of Logic then he may understand what i am talking about. and I am sorry. I am not saying I am correct but there is something factual that I have said.
