SDA Apostasy Information

In light of the conference starting a new organization which is different from that of the 1800s, now is the time to support independent ministries who follow God and His truth.  When the truth is attacked, God is attacked, for God is truth.  We have two clear choices now, support new-age Adventism in the conference or support God and his truth elsewhere in other ways. 


Our Work as SDAs:

“Seventh-day Adventists have been chosen by God as a peculiar people… He has made them his representatives and has called them to be ambassadors for Him in the last work of salvation.  The greatest wealth of truth ever entrusted to mortals, the most fearful warnings ever sent by God to man, to be given to the world.” 7T 138

“Seventh-day Adventists have been given a work of the most solemn import—the proclamation of the first, second, and third angels messages.  There is no other work of so great importance.  They are to allow nothing else to absorb their attention.” 9T 19

The Conference has attacked our work, the three angels messages, as documented on this page.

Written by a fourth generation SDA



This web page is dedicated to calling the conference leadership to depart from its ecumenical, politically correct direction

At a time when we are awaiting the soon return of Christ, when the investigative judgment is taking place, many of the laity and various leaders claim it does not matter what direction the organization is heading, or what is happening at the top of their organization, apostasy does not matter.

With so many differences between the conference of the 1800's to the conference of today, the question arises . . .




We are dedicated to proclaiming the historic doctrines held by God's true people in all ages.  Although we are not associated with the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Maryland, we are attempting to uphold the historic doctrines espoused by the Seventh-day Adventist pioneers in the nineteenth century.  We wish only to unite God's remnant people to press together, holding high the banner on which is inscribed "the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus."  Because the powers of darkness have attempted to take control of God's last-day people through infiltration and false signs and teaching, which if possible would deceive the very elect; we are attempting to help those believers who are standing up for the truth here in these last days of earth's history.  Many historic believers around the world have established home study groups where they can bring new interests and converts to hear the Three Angels' Messages instead of the New Theology.  We only wish to help defend the faith and expose the flood of false doctrine by which the truth is being assailed. 

Because the laity in the conference is not fully aware of what is taking place in the ministry they support, we see a need to point out the sin and apostasy in the camp as a means of correcting the problems.  Because of the gross apostasy from the truth, the faithful "independent" ministries around the world have chosen to follow God instead of man, and are actively protesting the sins of the conference while giving the three angels' messages to the world. 


Should We Support a New SDA Organization?


"Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins."  Isaiah 58:1








"Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel.  These words will be literally fulfilled; yet the time is passing and the people are asleep.  They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience.  The time is short. God is calling; will you hear?  Will you receive His message?  Will you be converted before it is too late?  Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity."  Letter 106, 1909, 5,7

[The prophet Ezekiel was shown a vision of the slaughter of the remnant of Israel, or Adventists, in the last days.  This slaughter begins with the leaders in Israel and finishes with almost all Adventists being killed.  The number is so large, the prophet cries out to his accompanying angel asking if all Adventists are will to be killed!]

Ezekiel 9 "Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, 'Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.'  And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand.  One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer's inkhorn at his side.  They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.  Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple.  And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's inkhorn at his side; and the Lord said to him, 'Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.'  To the others he said in my hearing, 'Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.  Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.'  So they began with the elders who were before the temple.  Then He said to them, 'Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain.  Go out!' and they went out and killed in the city.  So it was, that while they were killing them, I was left alone; and I fell on my face and cried out, and said, 'Ah, Lord God! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out Your fury on Jerusalem?'  Then He said to me, 'The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land is full of bloodshed, and the city full of perversity; for they say, 'The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see!'  'And as for Me also, My eye will neither spare, nor will I have pity, but I will recompense their deeds on their own head.'  Just then, the man clothed with linen, who had the inkhorn at his side, reported back and said, 'I have done as You commanded me.'"

This slaughter takes place among the leaders and laity of Adventism, due to their unfaithfulness.  Why then do we hear SDA's say that large numbers of our group will be saved when Mrs. White says the opposite?  Why do we hear SDA's say the conference is acceptable when it is not?   Friend, will you follow the easy, broad, ecumenical path in Adventism, or will you choose the straight and narrow way?  Will you defend our precious truth handed down from generation to generation, or will you follow the leaders of the conference and their new-age, ecumenical ideas that exempt the three angels' messages?   

Many years ago the conference was obedient to God, as it would adhere to the TRUTH which originated in the Advent movement of the nineteenth century.  Does the conference today promote the original messages from the historic Adventist movement of the 1800's?  Is it attempting to promote our same beliefs espoused by our pioneers which were based on a biblical foundation?  Let us analyze the messages the conference promotes, in order to determine if it is faithful.  Perhaps this way we can understand why God is so upset with this ministry.



The conference is not giving the first angel's message to the world.  They are not broadcasting our unique view of the investigative judgment which started in 1844.  In failing to give this sanctuary message to the world, they are making light of removing sin from our lives, of preparing for the latter rain.  The conference does not promote a message which says you must remove sin from your life, instead they say you can be saved in your sins.  The law of God in the sanctuary, in the Ark of the Covenant, is treated too lightly.  This mindset is part of the new theology doctrine which says the atonement was finished at the cross and there is no literal sanctuary in heaven where Christ is ministering.  The conference is not willing to defend this doctrine as it will cause them to appear to be different or odd when compared to the world.

"Adventists do not hold any theory of a duel atonement....  When, therefore, one hears an Adventist say, or reads in Adventist literature--even in the writings of Ellen G. White--that Christ is making atonement now, it should be understood that we mean simply that Christ is now making application of the benefits of the sacrificial atonement He made on the cross.Questions on Doctrine, 390, 354

"There is no veil at all in heaven--and all of heaven is a Most Holy Place!"  Garry Williams, in a sermon at a major Seventh-day Adventist church, Landmarks, April 2000.

"In the future, [today] deception of every kind is to arise, and we want solid ground for our feet.  We want solid pillars for the building.  Not one pin is to be removed from that which the Lord has established.  The enemy will bring in false theories, such as the doctrine that there is no sanctuary.  This is one of the points on which there will be departing from the faith."  RH, vol 5, 137


The conference is not broadcasting the identity of Babylon or the beast to the world.  It does not want to "offend" the churches of the world, so the second and third angels' messages are not loudly proclaimed to the world.  It is not heard on It is Written, Adventist World Radio, or included in mass mailings to the world. 

If a partial second and third angels' message is given regarding Babylon and the papacy, it is done so by a local church, after several weeks in a satellite Revelation seminar, with only a few non-Adventists in attendance at that point.  Most local churches are not actively proclaiming the three angels' messages through the media they have available such as radio, television or newspaper.  These media tools could be utilized to spread the truth, but they are not.

The world is not warned to avoid worshipping the beast, and the pope is not identified for what he is.  Kenneth Cox, possibly tutored by Florida Conference leaders, appeared live on Orlando television to denounce a billboard campaign by "independent" ministries which identified the pope as the beast.  He answered questions from viewers concerning Adventist beliefs.  One question asked was, "Is the pope the Antichrist?"  His answer was "no."  He said we should all just love Jesus.   This same attitude is throughout the conference today where the laity is told that it is hateful to identify Satan's false system or the man of sin.  Friends, if we truly love Jesus, and truly love those in Babylon, we will give His truth to the world and tell them who the Antichrist is.   Instead, the conference wishes to please men, not God.

The Vice President of the Conference, Neal C. Wilson, verbalized the conference position regarding the papacy, "Although it is true that there was a period in the life of the Seventh-day Adventist Church when the denomination took a distinctly anti-Roman Catholic viewpoint...that attitude on the church's part was nothing more than a manifestation of widespread anti-popery among conservative Protestant denominations in the early part of this century, and the latter part of the last, which has now been consigned to the historical trash heap as far as the Seventh-day Adventist Church is concerned."  Merikay McLeod lawsuit, Docket entry #84: EEOC vs PPPA, c-74-2025-CBR. Feb. 6, 1976

Notice these statements in the conference publication Review, May 2, 1991, Roy Adams said, "The Eucharist, turning the communion bread into the literal body of Christ, fits into the circle of the three angels' messages."  Also in the Review, September 19, 1993, Miriam Widmer said, "We praised the pope for sounding like an Adventist or protestant preacher, and suggested God was using this pope to bring the gospel to the Catholics."

At the 1990, General Conference Session in Indianapolis, a Catholic priest spoke and prayed from the pulpit.  The conference communications director told a local newspaper that we no longer believe what we did a hundred years ago concerning comments in the Great Controversy about the papacy.  A condensation of "The Great Controversy" was handed out in Indianapolis by an independent group.  "Shirley Burton, a spokesperson for the denomination, told the Indianapolis Star Daily newspaper the tract was 'trash.'...  The main body of the Church has moved away from an anti-Catholic position.  The new position of cooperation with the Catholic Church was exemplified by the invitation from the Seventh-day Adventists to the Vatican to send an official observer to the conference."  Arkansas Catholic 7-29-90.  The following are further comments found in The Indianapolis Star, July 14, 1990, "Though Adventist officials conceded the history of the denomination has an anti-Catholic bent, they said the modern church is trying to move from that stance.  'They (the dissidents) want us to be like we were 100 years ago.' said Herbert Ford, news director for the 6.2 million-member church.  'But, the church has to move not away from the eternal principles of God, but things do have to change.  'These people are a thorn in the flesh, but the church tolerates them.  United States in Prophecy [Great Controversy] which was sponsored by Adventist Layworkers Affiliate of Tennessee, calls Catholicism a pagan religion and refers to the pope as a beast.  Adventists who want to cling to the church's historic anti-Catholic beliefs represent only about 1,000 in the North American division of 750,000 members, Ford said."

At the 1995, General Conference Session in the Netherlands, the Vatican flag was carried through the meeting hall in a singular fashion amidst an unusually loud ovation when it appeared.   At the Session, the conference released a statement saying they endorsed the "United Nations Declaration on Religious Intolerance,"  "...the Church supports the United Nations proclamation of 1995, as the Year of Tolerance and says Christians need to develop sympathy for beliefs or practices that not only differ, but even conflict with their own."  Does this mean that we should join the ecumenical movement and avoid identifying false systems of worship?

How can the conference give the third angel's message when it is in partnership with the beast?  The Adventist and Catholic hospitals in Colorado have joined together and have become one entity.  These Adventist hospitals will be controlled by the Catholics, as the Catholics contributed the largest percentage of assets.  We received nothing in return for turning our hospitals over to them.  This is also happening at Madison Hospital, or Tennessee Christian Medical Center.  "Two Colorado health care providers, one Catholic and one Adventist, have joined forces to become one of the state's largest health care systems and employers." Our Sunday Visitor, January 7, 1996

Dick Duerksen, director of creative ministries in the Columbia Union, was mocking those who were saying, "The pope's stand on abortion, his book lifting up the gift of God's grace, his words praising family values and all his travels are but a smokescreen behind which he is building a world-wide power base. He will be taking control of the world any day."  Columbia Union Visitor

In the announcement of a new "Signs of the Times," the new editor, Marvin Moore, appeared to be saying that the beast will not be identified: "These articles will avoid attacking people and churches that disagree with us, including the Catholics. We win by drawing, not by pushing people away....  Signs keeps the three angel's messages front and center, but speaks the language of the 1990's, not the 1890's."  So we have Mr. Moore, like the conference, refusing to participate in the three angels' message as they consider it to be "attacking." 

In the conference book by Mr. Moore, The Antichrist and the New World Order, the "official book for sharing" with the world, he says Satan is the man of sin instead of the pope:  "...Satan will be the Antichrist in the one-world government that is coming upon the world in the near future" p19.  Mr. Moore then quotes 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4, which Mrs. White says refers to the pope, but he indicates it is Satan.  Other quotes also try to change the papacy into something different from what it really is:  "It's important to understand that today's Roman Catholic Church regrets the excesses of the Inquisition" p41  ["Excesses" is an interesting term for killing 50,000,000 people and attempting to destroy the word of God.]   "...I also recognize that the Catholic Church has changed in many ways from what it was during the medieval period of history." p45.   Mrs. White said in The Great Controversy that it has not changed, but is still attempting to take over our country and our freedom to worship.

Friends, we must identify the pope as the beast, the man of sin, and warn people to come out of this false system of worship before it is too late!

Mitchell Tyner, the associate general counsel for the General Conference wrote an article in the Columbia Union Visitor stating, "...the Pope and I descended from the same Father, that makes us brothers who should not go around making personal attacks on each other.... differences, no matter how legitimate, would not justify the alienation of a member of the family....After all, the Pope and I are brothers." Visitor, June 1, 1995

In 1997, Bert B. Beach was sent apparently as a representative of the conference to meet with ten other churches at a World Council of Churches assembly, where they worked out an agreement for all churches around the world to celebrate Easter on specific Sundays.  "The churches need to address the renewal of …the recovery of the meaning of Sunday…" World Council of Churches, Faith and Order, Towards a Common Date for Easter, item 3. Read this internet document:

Why doesn’t It Is Written proclaim the Sabbath and the three angels' messages over television?  Why aren’t the papacy and Babylon exposed for what they are?  Why aren’t local churches loudly proclaiming the truth to the world on a regular basis?  It is because the conference has chosen to become a new organization from what it was originally established?

An example of the change in character of the conference was on the occasion when the pope visited St. Louis in 1999.  A Seventh-day Adventist pastor was shown on television greeting the pope, calling him "your holiness."

sdapope2.jpg (25730 bytes) Click on photo to enlarge.

When the pope visited St. Louis in January of 1999, he held a Vespers Service where there was an ecumenical gathering.  Representatives of many faiths came together to meet the Pope and welcome him to America.  The Dayton Daily News of January 28, 1999, recorded this event.  "The pope continued the theme of unity at his final ceremony Wednesday evening at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, where representatives of many faiths - Judaism, Hinduism, Seventh-day Adventists - joined him in prayer."  This description only touches the tip of the iceberg, friend.  The conference had a representative there, pastor B.T. Rice of the Northside Seventh-day Adventist church, who spoke and made a presentation to the Pope! Before he and other religious leaders spoke, a Catholic representative made the statement, "For many people outside the Catholic community with willingness and graciousness, our brothers and sisters of the ecumenical and inter-religious community, have accepted the invitation to come together this evening with your holiness."  A little later, pastor Rice spoke, "Pope, your Holiness [!].  Your historic visit to St. Louis Missouri has served as a catalyst in the creation of this program [ecumenical program?] and it transforms your presence into a lasting legacy for our region.  Today, we present to you, this proclamation, announcing the creation of Faith Beyond Walls, your commitment to improving inter-faith relations has fostered an environment wherein the spirit of collective faith positively action can thrive.  In addition, we also present you with this banner, the emblem of Faith Beyond Walls.  We hope and pray it will inspire inter-faith communities around the world.  To focus their efforts on improving health and the quality of life for all humanity.  Again, we welcome you to our region."  He then approached the pope and shook his hand.  This was covered on television with 2,800 members of the press covering the event and can be seen in the video Victory in St. Louis produced by the ministry Modern Manna.  Modern Manna had 40 volunteers in St. Louis at that time to hand out 100,000 Is Mary Dead or Alive books.  "And soon, after the Holy Spirit had been poured out and their mission completed, an apology would be offered by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists to the Pope of Rome, '...begging pardon for their [Modern Manna's] bigotry.'"  Victory in St. Louis video.

 Click on photo above.  Conference "representative" meets the pope after speaking and making his presentation.  

One cannot say this act of greeting the pope was the work of one man, as there was no disclaimer or clarification in the Review or newspapers to disassociate the conference from the actions of this pastor.  It is obvious that the conference was reaching out to the papacy.   The world viewed this incident as the Seventh-day Adventist Church joining with the papacy as brothers.

This type of union was prophesied in Revelation 17:13, "These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the Beast." 

Notice how those who are loyal to God will promote the pure truth and will not be ashamed of it:  "This is the message given by God to be sounded forth in the loud cry of the third angel. Those whose faith and zeal are proportionate to their knowledge of the truth will reveal their loyalty to God by communicating the truth, in all its saving, sanctifying power, to those with whom they associate." 8T 118

Those who refuse to give the third angel's message to the world are as guilty as those who commit open sin: "And through lack of zeal for the promulgation of the third angel's message, many others, while not apparently living in transgression, are nevertheless as verily lending their influence on the side of Satan as are those who openly sin against God.  Multitudes are perishing; but how few are burdened for these souls!  There is a stupor, a paralysis, upon many of the people of God, which prevents them from understanding the duty of the hour." 8T 119


As we should know, the pope's title on his tiara headdress basically says he is god on earth, and the numerical value of the letters add up to 666 in Greek, Hebrew and Latin.  The Bible and Spirit of Prophecy both indicate 666 represents the pope:  "Here is wisdom.  Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six" Rev. 13:18.  "I saw that the number (666) of the Image Beast was made up; [Rev. 13:18] and that it was the Beast that changed the Sabbath, and the Image Beast had followed on after, and kept the Pope's, and not God's Sabbath." WLF 19

In the November, 1994, "Adventist Review" a supplement titled "The Saints Victory in the End Time" states, "Any explanation of the cryptic number will have to be tentative."  Our historic Adventist view of the number 666 tied to the inscription on the papal tiara is termed "flimsy."   The article continues to say the number is "The code for the name of the sea monster, which is blasphemy."  In the same article, they doubt apostate Protestantism in the United States will become the image to the beast.

Mark Finley in the Net 95 and Net 96 evangelistic series, said the number 666 represents a human system of religion.  The number three equals the Trinity.  The number seven is perfection or completeness. The number six is imperfection, and a basis of Babylonian calculation.  The number 666 represents the triumphant of error, a triple union of error, a union of the dragon beast and false prophet, a religion of man, not God.  Pastor Finley never associated the papacy with this number. 

Friends, the conference has money, resources, buildings and people it could be using the spread this message to the world.  But it chooses not to use these resources to tell the world the truth.  Instead they sit idle while the truth is not communicated to the world.

"Preachers should have no scruples to preach the truth as it is found in God's word. Let the truth cut.  I have been shown that why ministers have not more success is, they are afraid of hurting feelings, fearful of not being courteous and they lower the standard of truth, and conceal if possible the peculiarity of our faith.  I saw that God could not make such successful.  The truth must be made pointed, and the necessity of a decision urged.  And as false shepherds are crying, 'peace,' and are preaching smooth things, the servants of God must cry aloud, and spare not, and leave the results with God." Spiritual Gifts Vol 2 283

"It is a backsliding church that lessens the distance between itself and the Papacy." ST vol 3, 99.   Friend, could it be any clearer than that?  If we are friends with the papacy, we are demonstrating that we are in a backsliding condition.  Is this not what we see in the conference today?


In the conference book "Issues" page 109, the conference tells us sanctification is not important, and is basically a moot point.  Many articles in the Review, or books sold in our ABC's, promote this same viewpoint.  They are saying it is not necessary to obey the law of God to gain salvation.  Mrs. White says this type of logic is the wine of Babylon:

"True sanctification is found in yielding the will to the will of God, in rendering obedience to His commandments, and in making His standard of righteousness the aim of our life.  If men would consent to follow the Lord fully, if they were not confused with the wine of Babylon, they would see that to tamper with the Lord's standard, to depart from His commandments, is the worst species of rebellion.  This is well represented as the wine of the wrath of the abomination of Babylon, the cup which she has presented to all nations to drink....  How is it that you think yourselves at liberty to cancel the decisions of Jehovah, to remove the ancient landmarks, and substitute in place of the true guideboards false waymarks that will lead men to follow the path of the first great apostate in place of following Jesus Christ?"  Signs of the Times 11-14-95

The conference view on sanctification is similar to that of the world.  It has been called the Augustinian Doctrine of Original Sin.  Every man is born accursed with guilt and sin, so this rationalizes our law breaking, we can't stop sinning, as we were born with a sinful nature unlike Christ.  The conference implies you may continue sinning right up until Jesus returns.

In the conference book Sealed Saints and the Tribulation, sanctification is not important, "God has only one criterion for salvation, faith in the merits of a crucified Savior.  Justification alone is our title to heaven."   Whatever happened to living the sanctified life, drawing nearer and nearer to the Lord?  Through this process we become more like Christ. 

Soon when Christ leaves the sanctuary in Heaven, those who have sin in their life will be found wanting, they will be forever lost, as Christ can no longer atone for their sins.  We must strive for sanctification on a daily basis by allowing Jesus to come in to our heart and take over our life, thereby enabling us to become over-comers.


The original 25 Fundamental Principles published in 1879, has the man of sin, the papacy identified in its own fundamental belief.  But today, in the conference baptismal book In His Steps, which covers "the principles of faith," and the official conference Internet site , the conference omits this important biblical belief.  Friend, this is positive proof that the conference is part of a new organization or belief system.

THE 144,000

Why does the conference promote a theory in the Review, that the 144,000 is a symbolic number, and those people who comprise this group will "number as the sands of the sea," when the Spirit of Prophecy tells us the 144,000 is a literal number?

"Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake." 1T 59

In Rev. 7:9 it speaks of a "great multitude" which are the resurrected saints, "Only by falling into the ground to die could He [Jesus] become the seed of that vast harvest--the great multitude that out of every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, are redeemed to God."  DA    The conference would have you believe the great multitude and the 144,000 are one and the same.

In Rev. 19:6,7 it speaks of this great multitude.   Mrs. White says this great multitude will sit down at the marriage supper of the Lamb, and this group represents everyone that was saved, both the living saints and the resurrected saints.   But the conference says this great multitude are the 144,000, thereby making the 144,000 a symbolic number representing a larger group.  The conference is in essence saying, the number of living that are saved and translated will be so large, you do not have to remove sin from your life, virtually everyone will be saved.  Unfortunately friend, the fact is, the vast, vast majority of those in the world and in Adventism will be lost.  "I was shown the startling fact that but a small portion of those who now profess the truth will be sanctified by it and be saved. Many will get above the simplicity of the work.  They will conform to the world, cherish idols, and become spiritually dead." 1 T  608


The world has noticed how the Sabbath versus Sunday issue has not been broadcasted to the world, as noted in the non-Adventist book Seeking a Sanctuary:  "For most of Adventist history, no discussion of the Sabbath was complete without consideration of 'the seal' and 'the mark of the beast'.  But although the connection is maintained in some popular writing, it is absent from recent theological studies."

The conference supported the Shops Bill in England which dealt with closing business on Sunday.  Seeking a Sanctuary noted: "Church leaders have felt able to modify the theology of the Sabbath, believing that they should not be preoccupied with the boundaries of the denomination but should rather draw on the Adventist tradition for the benefit of the wider world."

In the conference printed book Changing The World through Prayer, an ADRA prayer Journal, it states, "Prayer: Father, give our pastors boldness to proclaim the gospel on Sunday...." (emphasis supplied)

The Sunnyside Seventh-day Adventist Church in Portland, Oregon, had a newsletter which contained the following: "Is the Sabbath Biblical?  This will be the topic of our next Town Hall meeting scheduled for October 14.  Recently, several prominent Adventist pastors and evangelists have decided the Sabbath is not biblical and is part of the Old Covenant.  Pastor Bretsch will lead a discussion on this topic as well as open the floor for various interests to be discussed."

Why do some conference churches conduct work-bees, play softball, conduct business meetings, etc, on the Sabbath?

Some conference churches are now meeting on Sunday morning!  The Pacific Union Recorder boasts the creation of the "Adventist Sunday Church" in their February 2000 issue.  Worship service is held in a casual format Sunday morning, and is geared to bring the community to the church.  Those in the church say, "they hope that this model can be replicated in other cities across the country."  Friend, this is a lowering of the standards, where liberal Adventists meet the world where they are.  More on this later.

The Spirit of Prophecy told us of further Sabbath apostasy that would be promoted by the leaders of the majority of Adventists in the near future:  "The Lord has a controversy with His professed people in these last days. In this controversy men in responsible positions will take a course directly opposite to that pursued by Nehemiah.  They will not only ignore and despise the Sabbath themselves, but they will try to keep it from others by burying it beneath the rubbish of custom and tradition.  In churches and in large gatherings in the open air, ministers will urge upon the people the necessity of keeping the first day of the week.  There are calamities on sea and land: and these calamities will increase, one disaster following close upon another; and the little band of conscientious Sabbath-keepers will be pointed out as the ones who are bringing the wrath of God upon the world by their disregard of Sunday."  R & H 3-18-1884

Earlier we read Ezekiel chapter nine, where Mrs. White said the slaughter of Israel, or Adventists, will be literally fulfilled at the end of time.  Ezekiel saw almost all Adventists killed by the destroying angel, as they had received the mark of the beast.  The slaughter takes place because of all the apostasy in Adventism today, which is noted in Ezekiel chapter eight.  The last apostasy mentioned in chapter eight is sun worship.


The conference is ignoring the spirit of Prophecy counsel on many topics.  They quote from the Spirit of Prophecy while ignoring the majority of her counsel. Mrs. White said this would be Satan's last deception:  "The very last deception of Satan will be to make of none effect the testimony of the Spirit of God.  'Where there is no vision, the people perish.' Proverbs 29:18.  Satan will work ingeniously, in different ways and through different agencies, to unsettle the confidence of God's remnant people in the true testimony.  There will be a hatred kindled against the testimonies which is satanic.  The workings of Satan will be to unsettle the faith of the churches in them, for this reason: Satan cannot have so clear a track to bring in his deceptions and bind up souls in his delusions if the warnings and reproofs and counsels of the Spirit of God are heeded" SM 1, 48.

In 2008, David Gates said that in Germany, if a pastor quotes from the Spirit of Prophecy from the pulpit, they are in danger of being fired by the conference. 

In rejecting the spirit of prophecy, we reject God:  "While at -----, the Lord came to me in the night season and spoke precious words of encouragement concerning my work, repeating the same message that had been given me several times before.  With regard to those who have turned from the light sent them, He said: 'In slighting and rejecting the testimony that I have given you to bear, it is not you, but Me, your Lord, that they have slighted" 5T, 688.


The conference lunged forward in apostasy during the year 1957, with the publishing of Questions on Doctrine which presented a new view on the nature of Christ which was similar to the world's.  The historic SDA view which portrays Christ's nature similar to yours and mine, where He came to this world with a sinful nature yet without sin, where He came with 4,000 years of degraded sinful flesh, was thought to label us a cult.  To prevent us from being called a cult, some of the leaders chose to change our view on the nature of Christ, to a view similar to that of the world.

Today, in the conference book Seventh-day Adventists Believe page 49 we read: "The Bible portrays Jesus' humanity as sinless....  Jesus Christ took upon Himself our nature...but He was free from hereditary corruption or depravity...."

The conference has tried to promote both sides of the issue, so as to appease everyone, including the world.  Some conference pastors have been told to remain neutral on this issue.

Mrs. White tells us "That He might by His own example condemn sin in the flesh, He took upon Himself the likeness of sinful flesh." Signs 09/03/02   "He took upon His sinless nature our sinful nature." Med. Miss. 181, 1902  "For four thousand years the race had been decreasing in physical strength, in mental power, and in moral worth; and Christ took upon Him the infirmities of degenerate humanity" Desire of Ages 117.

How important is the nature of Christ?  If Christ's humanity was different from ours, we have no hope for salvation for He could not have been our substitute.  If we believe Christ had a type of superior humanity, we would believe He had an advantage in overcoming sin, and was unlike us.  We would feel distant from Christ's experience.  We would tend to give up in our battle with sin.   This is what Satan desires, is for us to feel distant from Christ's experience and thus embrace a sinful lifestyle.

(For more info on the truth of this topic see the book The Word Was Made Flesh by Ralph Larson.  All of Mrs. White's quotes on the nature of Christ are in this book.)


In 1968, the conference became a non-voting member of the World Council of Churches, World Confessional Families.  Today the conference will tell you it is not a member, when in fact it is.  The World Council of Churches produced the Dictionary of the Ecumenical Movement, 1991.  In this book, the conference leader Bert B. Beach tells how the conference is part of the World Council of Churches, "The SDAC [Seventh-day Adventist Church] is regularly represented through observers or advisors at WCC and other church meetings.  For many years, a SDA has been a member of the WCC Faith and Order commission in a personal capacity.  The SDAC has participated in dialogues with the WCC and various religious bodies and since 1968 has been represented at the conference of secretaries of Christian World Communions.  More recently, the SDAC has been represented at the annual conference of US church leaders.  Christian World Communions and various churches have responded to the SDA invitation and sent observers to the quin-quennial general conference sessions." p 919

Please go to the WCC web site which lists the members of the Christian World Communions, which includes the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists:


The World Confessional Families met in Rome, with B. B. Beach the secretary of the Northern Europe-West Africa Division representing the conference, where he met with the Pope in a private ceremony. Why is the conference a member of the WCF?  Beach presented the Pope with a conference-issued gold medal.   The 8-11-77 Review said it was a "symbol of the Seventh-day Adventist church."  Today, the conference is not ashamed of its presentation to the papacy, and is defending the gold medal presentation via a detailed description of the meeting.  "It was felt that it was of interest to meet with the man who is the religious leader of some 700 million people....[Beach] gave him one of the medallions that...are given from time to time to statesmen...."



There are several items on this gold medal which are designed to please the pope.  1.  Christ is in a Catholic stance, like the Vatican painting by Francis de Assisi, and idols.  2.  He is standing on earth like Satan will when personating Christ.  3. There is a cloud with lightning bolts extending from it, just as mystery religions and the medieval papacy used.  It was a symbol of Satan in the mysteries.  4.  There are eight angels.  Eight is the symbol of the sun day.  5.  The Maltese cross is a Vatican symbol.  6.  THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT IS CHANGED TO READ THE SAME WAY  THE PAPACY ATTEMPTED TO CHANGE IT. 


Conference N. L. P. instructors use the "Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius," the founder of the Jesuits, in their training of pastors and local church leaders.  These concepts include mysticism and imagination to surrender your will.  Another technique is subtle hypnotism of local church members by the pastor.  By doing so, the pastor will meet less resistance from his congregation to his new ideas.

Jan Marcussen gave an example of N.L.P. in his August 1996, newsletter.  "On June 15, 1996, at the Rocky Mountain camp meeting, [conference] President Jim Bauer...came out on the platform to speak at that meeting, he was dressed as a Catholic monk, with the scull cap, the crucifix, the rosary beads, and the whole Catholic regalia...  The broken, fragmented thoughts throughout much of the talk is one element of NLP.  It is calculated to cause mild confusion to the listeners--but within those fragments are statements which the speaker (A) knows are against the beliefs of the listeners, (B) wants the listeners to start getting acquainted with, and start unconsciously accepting, so he states them in broken, fragmented thoughts, which cannot be easily connected - which bypass the logical reasoning of the human mind, and lodge in the subconscious to be more easily accepted later.  An example of this were his words, 'Have you ever heard on the radio people praying the rosary?'  Then disconnected thoughts, then, 'there is so much merit attached to it.  And so by going all the way around here [while fingering the rosary] I receive some extra merit. Somehow I overcome what I know I'm doing wrong. And so I pray." He also used fogging, and pacing, break down any barriers, and win the confidence of the audience....Some direct quotes from his talk are: 'there is a sect within the Adventist church.' After using the word 'logical' in a good way, then more disconnected thoughts, he said, 'Now, see, Roman Catholicism is logical.'"

By conference pastors using Neuro Linguistic Programming, they are revealing to us their true condition:  "I saw that Satan was working through agents in a number of ways.  He was at work through ministers who have rejected the truth and are given over to strong delusions to believe a lie that they might be damned....  While preaching, praying, or conversing, some professed Adventists who had rejected present truth used mesmerism to gain adherents, and the people would rejoice in this influence, for they thought it was the Holy Ghost.  The time has come when even in the church and in our institutions, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.  But God will keep that which is committed to Him.  Let us draw near to Him, that He may draw near to us. Let us bear a plain, clear testimony right to the point, that hypnotism is being used by those who have departed from the faith, and that we are not to link up with them." 3SM 411,412


The conference filed a large lawsuit during 1999-2000, against Pastor Rafael Perez and the Eternal Gospel Church of Seventh-day Adventists, P.O. Box 15138, West Palm Beach, FL 33416.  See   What was their crime?  They have published full-page advertisements in major newspapers or magazines around the country to identify the beast.  Using quotes from the Great Controversy they are able to draw public interest to the truth.  Unfortunately the conference is ashamed of our truth and pursued the course of using the courts to persecute those who would dare to proclaim the truth to the world.  The conference is going out of its way to communicate to the world that they filed a lawsuit against the Eternal Gospel Church.  Kermit Netteburg, Assistant to the President for Communication, was quoted as saying "For more than two years, the Seventh-day Adventist church has been asking the Eternal Gospel Church to cease its inappropriate identification with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, to no avail...the matter is u
