So I’m curious… What will you all do if MAINSTREAM Adventism takes the same stand as the British Methodist Church has taken on Homosexual Marriages? It’s coming….it’s just a matter of TIME. The Liberal SDA’s are already there.
Enough is Enough….
WHERE is the LINE IN THE SAND where you will say, “Enough is Enough”?
At what POINT will you come to the conclusion that the Church is NEVER turning around? or do you you really believe in “once saved/always saved – once the church/always the church”?
The SDA Church Left the Path in the 1950’s…
Personally, I believe the SDA organization left the PATH in the ’50’s and it’s been a steady decline ever since then…I believe God does have a few faithful souls IN the Adventist Church, as He does in all other Churches, including the Roman Catholic Church.
I believe the 28 Fundamentals held by the Church are true…but it’s not just what you BELIEVE that makes you to be the TRUE CHURCH. It’s also what you DO.
Consider what the Prophet tells us here ~
The existing confusion of conflicting creeds and sects is fitly represented by the term “Babylon,” which prophecy (Revelation 14:8; 18:2) applies to the world-loving churches of the last days. PP 124.1
and what the Bible says here ~
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Revelation 14:12.
Babylon Consists of Churches that….
Babylon consists of Churches that are EITHER or BOTH:
#1. Teaching False Doctrine
The TRUE CHURCH consists of those who “KEEP the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
Can Any of You Honestly Say……?
I believe it would be very hard for anyone honest to say that, as an ORGANIZATION, the SDA Church is not a WORLD-LOVING CHURCH.
Can any of you honestly say that, as an ORGANIZATION, the SDA Church “keeps the commandments of God”? Think of all the counsel as a Church, that we have been given in regards to EDUCATION, DIET, MEDICAL, PASTORAL and every other branch….that COUNSEL is part of the COMMANDMENTS we have been given by God Himself….and honestly, I can hardly think of ANY OF IT that as a Church, we have followed. As a WHOLE, the Church has TURNED her back on God.
Perhaps The Church Will Try to Ride the Fence As It has Done with the Abortion Issue for 5 Decades ~
Perhaps the Church will handle the Homosexuality Issue the same as it has handled the Abortion Issue. For 5 decades, the Church has REFUSED to bring the subject of Abortion to a vote in a GC Session. I believe that has been a deliberate decision so that they can say, “The Church has no official stand on Abortion.” That way, they can RIDE THE FENCE and try to keep the Liberal Pro-Death members happy and at the same time keep the Conservative Pro-Life members happy.
It’s all about keeping the $$$ coming in! For 5 decades, the Adventist Church has been in the ABORTION BUSINESS….profiting heavily from it! If you are not familiar with the History of HOW & WHY the Church got into the ABORTION BUSINESS, I’d highly recommend you read this article.
My favorite definition of THE CHURCH is this one ~
God has a church. It is not the great cathedral, neither is it the national establishment, neither is it the various denominations; it is the people who love God and keep His commandments. “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). Where Christ is even among the humble few, this is Christ’s church, for the presence of the High and Holy One who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church. UL 315.5
THIS is the Church that is going thru. THIS is the Church we must all strive to be a part of!
