Theos Institute

Welcome fellow Bible Students to Theos Institute. This site is dedicated to the one and only true God, our heavenly Father, and our one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the beloved only-begotten Son of the Father, truly divine and truly human. We rely fully upon the impartation of the omnipresent Spirit of Christ in all that we do. We use four main sources, in our studies, in this order of importance: (1) Holy Scripture, (2) Spirit of Prophecy (Testimony of Jesus) – the writings of Mrs. Ellen G. White [1827-1915], (3) Seventh-day Adventist Pioneer writings, and (4) church history. Our only goal is to rightly divide the Word of God and to know the truth, as it is in Christ Jesus (Messiah Yahshua). This is a personally owned private website and is not endorsed by any denomination or religious group. To God be all the glory.

NOTE: You can access the writings of Ellen White and the Adventist Pioneers at this website: EGW Writings Online.

If you have relevant insights into the topics covered on this site, feel free to contact us. Blessings to all, as we dig deep into the mine of God’s glorious truth.

Friends, our time on planet earth is short and Jesus is soon to return to gather His people home to eternity. Ideas, concepts and personal beliefs are what makes us who we are in moral character (thoughts and feelings combined). If your character is molded after the image of God’s character, then you are walking in truth, but if your character is molded after the image of Satan, then you are walking in deception and error. Theos Institute is here to help you find truth, as it is in Jesus (Yahshua), the only-begotten Son of the one true God (Yahweh). We must all learn to study deeply for ourselves, so that we may know, “What saith the LORD?” for ourselves. We should not trust our salvation to any person, pastor, or relative other than the man Christ Jesus, who alone is our righteousness, our salvation and our only hope. To God be the glory!

The True Relationship - Father and Son

God is the Father of Christ; Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been made equal with the Father. All the counsels of God are opened to His Son.” — 8T, 268.3 – Ellen G. White

“As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) but to us there is but one Godthe Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.” — 1 Corinthians 8:4-6

“One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” — Ephesians 4:6

Theology is valueless unless it is saturated with the love of Christ. True Christianity diffuses love through the whole being. It touches every vital part,–the brain, the heart, the helping hands, the feet,–enabling men to stand firmly where God requires them to stand, lest the lame be turned out of the way. The burning, consuming love of Christ for perishing souls is the life of the whole system of Christianity. ¶ The worker for God needs spiritual life. This life will give vigor to soul and body. Spiritual life yields to its possessor that which all the world is seeking, but which can never be obtained without an entire surrender to God. The contemplation of Him who loved us and gave Himself for us, will make our lives sweet and fragrant, and give us power to perfect a Christian experience.” — Signs of the Times, May 10, 1910 par. 4-5 — Ellen G. White

 “Our faith is not to stand in the ability of men but in the power of God. There is danger of trusting in men, even though they may have been used as instruments of God to do a great and good work. Christ must be our strength and our refuge. The best of men may fall from their steadfastness, and the best of religion, when corrupted, is ever the most dangerous in its influence upon minds. Pure, living religion is found in obedience to every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Righteousness exalts a nation, and the absence of it degrades and ruins man.” — Faith and Works, p. 89.1 — Ellen G. White

How to Treat Those Who Differ With Us On Some Points of Truth

“If a brother differ with you on some points of truth, do not stoop to ridicule, do not place him in a false light, or misconstrue his words, making sport of them; do not misinterpret his words and wrest them of their true meaning. Do not present him before others as a heretic, when you have not with him investigated his positions, taking the Scriptures text by text in the spirit of Christ to show him what is truth. You do not yourself really know the evidence he has for his faith, and you cannot really clearly define your own position.” — Ellen White, letter to G. I Butler, written from Minneapolis October 14th, 1888, Volume 12 Manuscript Releases, MR 998, letter 21
 
“Suppose a brother held a view that differed from yours, and he should come to you, proposing that you sit down with him and make an investigation of that point  in the Scriptures; should you rise up, filled with prejudice, and condemn his ideas, while refusing to give him a candid hearing? The only right way would be to sit down as Christians, and investigate the position presented, in the light of God’s word, which will reveal truth and unmask error. To ridicule his ideas would not weaken his position in the least if it were false, or strengthen your position if it were true. If the pillar of our faith will not stand the test of investigation, it is time that we knew it. There must be no spirit of Phariseeism cherished among us. When Christ came to his own, his own received him not; and it is a matter of solemn interest to us that we should not pursue a similar course in refusing light from heaven.” — Review and Herald, June 18, 1889 par. 5 – EGW
 
“Suppose a brother should come to us, and present some matter to us in a different light from that in which we had ever looked at it before, should we come together with those who agree with us, to make sarcastic remarks, to ridicule his position, and to form a confederacy to misrepresent his arguments and ideas? Should we manifest a bitter spirit toward him, while neglecting to seek wisdom of God in earnest prayer,–while failing to seek counsel of Heaven? Would you think you were keeping the commandments of God while pursuing such a course toward your brother? Would you be in a condition to recognize the bright beams of heaven’s light should it be flashed upon your pathway? Would your heart be ready to receive divine illumination?–No; you would not recognize the light. All this spirit of bigotry and intolerance must be taken away, and the meekness and lowliness of Christ must take its place before the Spirit of God can impress your minds with divine truth. We should come right down to the root of the matter presented, and should not be in a position where we shall have no love for our brother because his ideas differ from our views. If you do take this position, you say by your attitude that you consider your own opinion perfection, and your brother’s erroneous.” — Review and Herald, August 27, 1889 par. 5 – EGW
 
“To hold yourselves aloof from an investigation of truth is not the way to carry out the Saviour’s injunction to “search the Scriptures.” Is it digging for hidden treasures to call the result’s of some one’s labor a mass of rubbish, and make no critical examination to see whether or not there are precious jewels of truth in the collection of thought which you condemn? Will those who have almost everything to learn keep themselves away from every meeting where there is an opportunity to investigate the messages that come to the people, simply because they imagine the views held by the teachers of the truth may be out of harmony with what they have conceived as truth? Thus it was that the Jews did in the days of Christ, and we are warned not to do as they did, and be led to choose darkness rather than light, because there was in them an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God. No one of those who imagine that they know it all is too old or too intelligent to learn from the humblest of the messengers of the living God.” — S. S. W., June, 1892.  {TSS 65.2} – EGW
 
“We are on dangerous ground when we cannot meet together like Christians, and courteously examine controverted points. I feel like fleeing from the place lest I receive the mold of those who cannot candidly investigate the doctrines of the Bible.” — Selected Messages, Vol. 1, p. 411.1  – EGW
