Elder Dennis Priebe; who has served the church as a pastor, college professor, and traveling evangelist for Amazing Facts; continues to hold seminars throughout the United States and around the world and is now preaching in defense of the church position on abortion and is critical of Prolife Adventist scholars.

He believes that Adventist acceptance of Evangelical Prolife teachings is a Trojan Horse that will lead to the formation of the Image of the Beast predicted in the Bible. He argues that coercion is inimical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that appealing to the state for reforming society is extremely dangerous to the Adventist existence as a Remnant prophetical movement.

“We desperately need to return to our Adventist pioneers who refused to get involved with party politics.”

The question is: Were our pioneers silent on abortion? Of course not! They actively participated in the abortion controversy and they strongly condemned the killing of the unborn, and condemned slavery as well.

In a recent sermon Priebe criticized the prolife writings of the growing number of Adventist scholars who are using the Bible to defend the right to life of the unborn. Priebe is right that we need to stay away from political alliance, but is definitely wrong in his criticism of the scholarly Prolife writings of Adventist professors.

What do you think? Below is a transcript of Priebe’s teaching on abortion.

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%
