W. Ordination

“The Seventh-day Adventist Church has formally voted three times against the ordination of women (1990, 1995, and 2015). Last Fall, in Battle Creek Michigan, the General Conference Executive Committee voted to discipline churches, Conferences and Unions who intentionally violate the expressed will of the world wide Seventh-day Adventist Church. So what do some liberal churches, Conferences and Unions do? They choose to violate it anyway!

Yesterday, the Silver Spring Seventh-day Adventist Church ordained a woman (Therezinha Barbalho) in spite of the Church’s position on ordaining women. This is—at best—an unwashed thumb in the eye, and at worst, an obscene hand gesture towards the General Conference headquarters—just 5.6 miles away. …”

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 http://lulu.com. 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. The title is: “Murder in Paradise: A Serious Warning to the United States & the Adventist Church” http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?type=Print+Products&keyWords=Samojluk+murder+in+paradise&x=5&y=10&sitesearch=lulu.com&q= Paperback: List Price: $22.49 $9.00 You Save: 60%
