Teaching Versus Practice

desmond-doss-4

You are probably aware that the story of Desmond T Doss is being widely viewed thanks to the publication of the “Hacksaw Ridge” film which has captivated the attention of the entire world.

The hero of this dramatic artistic production did faithfully follow the pro-life teachings of the Adventist Church, and he did so under the most trying circumstances. He refused to carry a gun even in self defense, and he managed to save the life of 75 American soldiers.

His actions contrasts with the behavior of the General Conference that authorized in 1970 the offering of elective abortions to their hospital patients. Please, click on the following link and post your comments there:

A Day in Pompeii – Full-length animation

Padres: please tell us the full truth!

““Only one of the babies survived, and she is now a teenager. I love her. I’m glad I have her. But I have agonized over those 10 frozen embryos ever since. Apologists for the Sexual Revolution might say that this man’s guilt is a problem created by the last vestiges of religion. I say that is a crock. He instantly and instinctively knew that something was wrong with freezing his children. …

“My wife and I divorced. I am still struggling over what to do with our frozen embryos. I have met with other priests and counselors. I finally found one who said, “Stop calling them embryos. They are your children.” I knew immediatly that he was right. The priest gave him some genuine relief, by actually addressing the problem, not glossing over it. I don’t know about you, but I feel crazy when someone tells me “it’s ok,” when I know for a fact that it isn’t. The priest gave me an ethical path for what to do for my children. …”

“The Hydrocephalus prognosis was, tragically, correct. When tiny Noah was born, he had less than two percent of a brain.

Little Noah was rushed into emergency surgery immediately after birth to close the opening at the bottom of his spine and to drain fluid from his empty brain cavity.

The surgery was successful beyond anyone’s hopes. As time went on, Noah’s brain began to grow into its cavity. …”

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ calls Adventists to revisit commitment to non-violence

hacksaw-ridge-movie

“Gibson’s portrayal of Doss, a genuine hero by all counts, calls this generation of Seventh-day Adventists to rediscover and embrace the church’s heritage of non-violence. …”

My question: If we Adventists want to adopt the non-violence policy of Desmond T. Doss, the hero of “Hacksaw Ridge” we should do away with a church document created to justify violence against the unborn known as “Guidelines on Abortion.”

On one hand we have them presenting the stranding of whales as a major news event and on the other the Abortion Supervisory Committee’s report in June 2016, that 13,155 innocent and defenseless unborn children were aborted in the previous 2015 year, is barely worth a mention. …”

Adventist Evangelism & Full Disclosure

disclosure

“Full disclosure is expected and required in the sale of products to the general public. It is expected in the industry and medicine. A physician who hides the fact that his patient has a terminal disease runs the risk of loosing his license to practice medicine; a Realtor who fails to disclose to a potential buyer that the house he is about to purchase is full of termites is exposing himself to a lawsuit; a car manufacturer who fails to correct a serious mechanical defect is liable to face an expensive eventual recall of its product and a multi million dollar payment for damages. …”

“Hacksaw Ridge,” the 2016 film drama telling the story of Desmond T. Doss, Sr., the first conscientious objector to receive the United States of America’s highest military honor, the Congressional Medal of Honor, has been nominated for a total of six Academy Awards, known as “Oscars,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said January 24. …

He refused to carry a weapon, citing the sixth commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” For that stance, he earned the derision of his comrades and was nearly court-martialed. But Doss won the right to serve as “conscientious cooperator,” and later, without firing a shot, saved 75 lives on a hilltop in Okinawa, Japan. …”

Doss who saved the lives of 75 American soldiers while dodging enemy bullets during the war against Japan and was granted the medal of honor by the U.S. President Truman.

This valiant soldier refused to carry a gun—even in self defense–because he believed in the sacredness of human life and because of his profound respect towards the sixth commandment of the Decalogue that prohibits the murder of human beings. …”
