Did some formal study at a Bible school in the US about 8 years ago. Find enjoyment from reading books like the Moody Handbook of Theology. Raised Catholic until 14. Followed the typical non-denominational dogma until about 23. Now I pick what I like from the various opinions on topics rather than the whole.

I make my decisions about what I like from logic; does it make sense? I used to say 'does it make sense with what I know,' but realized that kept me from truly exploring certain ideas because I was afraid of dismantling my own beliefs, leaving me feeling like I know nothing. Now I am happy to consider completely rethinking my beliefs because after the fear of knowing nothing wears off I can begin a new life filled with the excitement a child gets when playing with something for the first time.

Following suit with the vtc because it is an old question and there are enough answers already, showing a decent range of responses to the issue. I'm in favor of not deleting, however.

comment What is the argument supporting that there is a break between the 69th and 70th week in the book of Daniel?
To make this less subjective, perhaps change the title to "What is the argument supporting that there is a break between the 69th and 70th week in the book of Daniel?"

@Flimzy ... a particular end-time theology, yes. Thank you, Tim LaHaye

I already said, saying the Son is begotten is something both groups do, as well as most other Christians. For JW's it is their reasoning for rejecting the Trinity, and this verse is used as indirect support for Michael=Jesus theology. SDA are classic Trinitarians; Michael, the archangel, is just another name and title for Jesus. In short, this is not an answer that either group would give.

The question and site guidelines are asking that you answer from the SDA and JW perspective.
