Two thought provoking questions


For quite some time now I have been interested in what Seventh-day Adventists believe concerning whether Christ could have sinned or not, also if He had sinned, what would have happened to Him (Him meaning the pre-existent Son of God). To this end I would be very interested in your thoughts. This is why I am asking you to please participate in a very quick survey. All you need to do is answer ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ to the following two questions. If you answer ‘No’ to question ‘A’ then obviously question ‘B’ becomes non-applicable.


(a)   Could Christ have sinned?

(b)  If Christ had sinned would He have lost His eternal existence (‘He’ meaning the pre-existent divine Son of God)?


If you wish to make further comments, please feel free to include them in your reply. I shall be only too glad to receive them. If you are not a Seventh-day Adventist and would like to reply please denote this (non SDA) in your reply.
