Update

In 1997 I cobbled together my first website: a primitive Geocities page I named "Voice in the Wilderness." Then I was serving my first district as pastor in the Nevada desert. Near the end of my experience at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, I bought the domain name GreatControversy.org. With only occasional hiatuses, I have since then operated the website.

Those visiting may notice that GreatControversy.org is running on a new platform. Twenty-one years of content is a lot, but as opportunity permits, most of the content from life of the site will be restored. Changes to the GCO ministry will soon be shared in this space.

All our Righteousnesses, part 1

Today we begin a short new series: "All our Righteousnesses." Can humans have any righteousness? What is righteousness? Is everything we do tainted? Is any of what we do meritorious? What is and is not sin? Are we born sinners?

The starting place is always, What does the Bible teach? We find the word "sinner" or "sinners" more than 60 times in the Bible. Perhaps we have assumed we are born sinners. But let us turn to these texts and see what they say.
