My previous email dealing with the “Trojan Horse” generated comments on both sides of the Adventist Prolife abortion issue. The following comment came from a pastor who is concerned about my soul. Here are some of the comments he made. I did not ask for authorization to reveal his identity.

1. “I agree that abortion is wrong. I am glad that you have woken up the Church on this issue.”

The credit goes to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the work of the Adventist Prolife movement.

2. “God has a plan for him [the author of the Trojan Horse]. Are you facilitating that plan or are you tearing him down.”

We are not tearing this evangelist down. He publicly demeaned the work of Adventist profilers and we are publicly defending our work on behalf of the unborn. When the Apostle Paul noticed that Peter was acting contrary to the Gospel, he did not pull Peter aside privately to warn him of his untoward conduct. He publicly denounced his misbehavior.

And Recently Mark Finley upon watching a doctrinal error in Pastor Gates video, he publicly responded with a video condemning said doctrinal error. He explained that Matthew 18 did not apply because Gates’ erroneous teaching was made publicly and merited a public condemnation.

You can check this by clicking on the following link. His explanation is listed as the very first words he uttered.

The other comment came from Charles Clevelant. I am revealing his identity with his permission:

“Usually a trustworthy voice on moral issues, Dr Priebe has impaled himself upon a faulty premise. I quote:

“The disturbing reality is that the same people who stand strongest against abortion and stand for moral values are the same people who want to unite with conservative Catholics to restore a Christian dominionism that will trample on religious freedom for minorities.”

This false dichotomy equates the group taking a spiritually discerned moral position with others working for an ecumenical and political outcome. Though there may be some overlap, equating the two is reprehensible in this context as it is a grossly unfair slander upon staunchly pro-life Adventists.”

Being silent while millions of innocent human being are subjected to poisoning and dismemberment is not the Biblical way. We need to repent and do what is right! Queen Esther risked her own life when she spoke on behalf of her people.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” [Prov. 31:8-9]

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. 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 SDA church has no valid reason to switch from pro abortion  ( yes, you read that right, pro abortion  ) to anti abortion because to do so they would have to change numerous of their 28 Fundamentals.  The SDA denomination is skanky from every which way throughout it’s entire history. The don’t teach GRACE.  Without grace we would all be lost.  I would suggest if it’s your commitment to ” the Sabbath ” you check out the Seventh day Baptist or the many other Seventh day Christian churches. The SDA is too beholden to the White Foundation and the finances the White Foundation gets from the members.  Follow the money.
