How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?

Notice what the SDA Clear Word Bible does to verse 14. Where in Scripture does it say that Christ has been waiting to present us to the universe? That is part of Ellen White's "Great Controversy" concept. That is not supported by Scripture.

This line of thought is evidenced by the following Adventist teachings.

In the last generation God gives the final demonstration that men can keep the law of God and that they can live without sinning. God leaves nothing undone to make the demonstration complete. The only limitation He puts on Satan is that he may not kill the saints of God. He may tempt them, he may harass and threaten them; and he does his best. But he fails. He cannot make them sin. They stand the test, and God puts His seal on them. Through the last generation of saints God stands fully vindicated. (M.L. Andreasen The Sanctuary Service, Review and Herald, 1969 printing, pp. 318-19)

Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ is perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own. (Christ's Object Lessons, p. 69)

Not one of us will ever receive the seal of God while our characters have one spot or stain on them. It is left with us to remedy the defects in our characters, to cleanse the soul temple of every defilement. Then the latter rain will fall upon us as the early rain fell upon the disciples on the Day of Pentecost. (Testimonies, Vol. 5, page 214)

Hebrews 10:13-14 (King James Version)

13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.


Hebrews 10:13-14 (New International Version)

13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool,

14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

Hebrews 10:13-14 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

13 He's now waiting for the time to come when all men, even His enemies, will acknowledge His rightful authority.

14 On the basis of this one sacrifice, Christ can now present us to the universe as having been counted perfect, because we've been forgiven.
