#218, #219, & #220: "Contrast this with the plain statement from the Bible in Hebrews chapter 7 verse 25 concerning Jesus Christ. 'Hence also, He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.' Truly the salvation for the Seventh-day Adventists, placing sin upon Satan, is not the salvation taught in the Bible."—Steve Cannon.

#218: This contradicts Hebrews 7:25. As should be readily apparent from #217, the use of this text is irrelevant to the point. Will this verse be still true ten million years after Christ returns? Of course not. There will be no need of salvation or intercession then, since sin will be no more. The saved of earth will enjoy total bliss throughout eternity without needing a mediator.

And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. (Rev. 22:3, 4)

And [God] said [to Moses], Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. (Ex. 33:20)

What makes the difference? Why was Moses unable to see God's face in Old Testament times, but the redeemed throughout eternity will be able to? We cannot today approach a holy God except through our divine Mediator, because of our sinfulness. However, once sin is fully dealt with, this impediment will be removed, and we will be able to see the face of God. The clear implication is that when Revelation 22:3 and 4 are fulfilled, there will no longer be the need of a mediator.

Hebrews 7:25 is talking about the present. It has no [p. 142] bearing whatsoever upon that time when those who are filthy will be filthy still, when those who are righteous will be righteous still.

#219: Seventh-day Adventists believe their salvation comes from placing sin upon Satan. Maybe Mr. Cannon is talking about the Church of Satan, but he cannot be talking about Seventh-day Adventists. The placing of sins upon Satan in the end purchases salvation for no one. Yet it is a biblical fact that the one responsible for all sin will receive his just deserts (see #191).

#220: This isn't the salvation taught in the Bible. Since Seventh-day Adventists do not believe, and never have, that their salvation comes from placing sins upon Satan, this argument is clearly irrelevant.
