Sabbath School

Unlike a sermon, Sabbath School is a place where students are allowed to ask questions and make comments. This past week the Sabbath School lesson dealt with God’s Law. I followed the lesson by Internet and posted a couple of questions that were deleted. My questions dealt with the issue of abortion. Here are the questions:

A. Four decades ago when the State of Hawaii legalized abortions on demand, our church allowed our Adventist hospitals to profit from the killing of innocent unborn children for profit with impunity and thousands of babies were sacrificed on the altar of convenience. Was this right or wrong? My question was deleted.
B. Recently our church publicly declared its neutrality on abortion in the country of Kenya. How can we be neutral on killing, which is a violation of the Sixth Commandment of God? If we sexually harm a child, it is wrong; but if we kill the child before it is born, we are neutral? I don’t understand! This question of mine was deleted as well.

Was it wrong for me to ask those questions?



About adventlife

I am a second generation Adventist who joined the church by baptism almost seven decades ago when the Adventist Church was still pro-life. I have a Ph. D. Degree in religion, and my dissertation was entitled "From Pro-life to Pro-choice: The Dramatic Shift in Seventh-day Adventists' Attitudes Toward Abortion." I recently published a book with said title which is available at You need to type my name in the Search blank space to access it. I believe that the Adventist Church should get out of the abortion business, especially out of the elective type of abortions. The church did compromise on this moral issue back in 1970 and many of its hospitals were allowed to profit from the killing of innocent unborn babies with impunity. The church needs to repent of this great moral sin and publicly admit that it was wrong for the "Remnant," Church which keeps God's Commandments, to profit from what the Bible and our Adventist pioneers labeled as murder. The Lord is merciful and forgiving, but public sins must be publicly repented of in order to secure God's forgiveness. P.S.: I recently published my second book dealing with abortion and the Adventist Church. The title is: “Murder in Paradise: A Serious Warning to the United States & the Adventist Church” Paperback: List Price: $22.49 $9.00 You Save: 60%

      It is very encouraging to know that I am not alone in this mission on behalf of the unborn. Every time I hear from Adventist pro-lifers, I get excited. We need to pray for our church. We need to search for our pro-life roots!

      God bless!
