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%

    The 4th Commandment is written from the home/farm context where you have supplies at hand. The Sabbath was “made for man,” for his needs which include food and shelter. What a sad misunderstanding of the Sabbath Commandment. It is an abuse for her local church or pastor to permit this woman to be so deceived as to what context the Commandment was given.

      If this woman believes that it is a sin to do the shopping on the Holy Day, I believe that God will honor her respect for her conscience. There is nothing worse than acting against what one honestly believes is right. In the meantime, Adventists in the U.S. have no problem eating at a restaurant on the Sabbath. I will judge neither of these extreme examples.

      Daniel the prophet was convinced that partaking of meat that had been offered to idols was wrong and decided to become a vegetarian in spite of the fact that Jews had no problem eating clean meat products, and the Lord blessed him abundantly. He did this in spite of the fact that his life was at risk.
