“Unity In Truth is comprised of Seventh-day Adventist laity and leaders throughout the North American Division whose passion is evangelism. We desire the church to be a safe place into which we can bring new people. Unfortunately, what we believe as an official church and what we actually practice are often two different things. Bringing new converts into churches which are acting contrary to our established beliefs and positions is a great hindrance to the growth of our church.

My comment: This is so true. A good example is the way the church handled the issue of abortion, which is murder; yet our church profited from the killing of unborn children for several decades now


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 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, that claims to keep 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.

    They just posted topics that they will be covering in the future. Abortion is one of them. It will be interesting to see how “conservative” “historic” Adventists will respond to their pioneers unanimously calling abortion “murder”? Maybe someone who actually knows what they are talking about will be invited to write the articles?
