The Catholic Infiltration of Adventists

The Elijah Messenger

If you are an Adventist, it's likely that this information might frustrate you. If it does then the reader should pause for a moment and consider Paul's inspired counsel, he said to "prove all things; hold fast that which is good" (I Th. 5:21). Ellen White explains that we should be candid with our investigations, ". .Our brethren should be willing to investigate in a candid way every point of controversy. . .We are all under obligation to God to know what He send us. He has given directions by which we may test every doctrine . .to the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. If the light presented meets this test, we are not to refuse to accept it just because it does not agree with our ideas." Councils to Writers and Editors, p. 43,44. The signs of the times are here, pointing us to the second coming of Christ. The Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1844 was called out to prepare a people of this time. But instead of progressing to the high calling of Jesus Christ, something strange happened, they started to digress back to Babylon. In Hebrews 10:38, Paul writing to the Jews said, "Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him." The saints then and the saints today have every right to feel displeased with any church that has been called by God, to be washed and purified, but instead desire to wallow in the mire of Babylon. Peter put it this way: "For if after they have escaped the pollution's of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.(I Pe. 2:20-22)."
Adventists Giving Tithes & Offerings to Catholics

Some months ago a friend of mine who writes a monthly newsletter called Escape for Thy Life, sent me a copy. On the front page of this newsletter was a clipping from the Trinidad Guardian May 3rd 1996, page. The title of the first page was, Adventist helping Catholics. If you have ever read the Great Controversy by Ellen G. White, as an Adventist this may spark some interest and might even prompt you to speak out against this unholy alliance. This is exactly what Nyron Madina did as he explained the events that preceded the publishing of the article. "What a shocking picture which appeared on the front of the Trinidad Guardian on May 3rd 1996. There is a picture of the Roman Catholic Archbishop Anthony Pantin hugging a Seventh-day Adventist woman, Suduyn Elder, of a local Community Services Director for the South Caribbean conference of the Seventh-day Adventist, while on the left a Roman Catholic nun, Sr. Marina Serette looks on with a smile, and on the right Pastor Clie Dottin looks on smiling approvingly. What was the occasion? The South Caribbean of Seventh-Day Adventists donated TT$20.000.00 as a contribution to the rebuilding of the burnt out dormitories of the St. Dominic's Home."Escape For Thy Life, vol.1, no.1, pp.6-7. Tithes and offering are sacred to God and to His service. So why was it given to the most diabolical institution which will soon give birth to the antichrist. In Revelation 18:3 God revealed to us how rich the Catholic Church really is . . ."nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of For all the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." In spite of God's revelation, we see the Adventist adding to Rome's billions. Nyron Madina also stated, "in the same newspaper the Roman Catholic Church still justifies Sunday Holiness which Adventism by its very nature is against. Ibid. 6. In this present time the General Conference deserves to hear the same rebuke from Hanani the prophet, to Asa "Herein thou hast done foolishly" (II Ch. 16:9).

Adventists and Catholics Unite in Health Care

Adventist are so marinated with the spirit of Catholicism that they decided to unite in health care. This took place in Colorado, where the Porter care Adventist Health system, and the Roman Catholic Sister of Charity Health service sought too, aligned themselves together. The nominal Adventist poses no threat to the Papal system. This is why the Pope feels compelled to add the Adventist to his list of "Martyrology." Adventists will be allied with its supposed opposition in the most ecumenical "Martyrology" unprecedented in history. The Extra Newsweek, issue Winter, 1997 p.16 quotes, "In his most dramatic millennial gesture he has asked all the worlds bishops to compile a list of Christians who in this century were persecuted for their faith. These names which could amount to a million from almost every continent, will be published in a "Martyrology." What makes this list different from those of the early church is this; it will include Christians of every stripe-Protestants and Orthodox, Anglicans and Adventists, not just Catholics." I wonder if the Pope is trying to warn the minority of faithful Protestants, as to say if you don't join the rest in my bandwagon of ecumenism, as the faithful "martyrs" of the past, I will unite you at death in my "Matyrology."

Flirting with Rome

The Adventists flirting with Rome, can be traced back to the inception in 1965, and still continues up to this present day. In 1977, Dr. B.B. Beach, the secretary of the Northern Europe West African Division of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, had a chief part in cross-breeding Adventism with Catholicism. This is equal to spiritual fornication! This is the same path that ancient Israel played: "Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith." Ezekiel 16:29.

B B. Beach calls the Pope Holy Father

Roman Catholics have many titles for the Pope. Here are just some of them, "Vicar of Christ," "Holy Father," "Your Holiness," etc. All these names titles are condemned by the Bible! The Pope himself confirms this, in his recent book, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, p.6 "Have no fear when people call me the "Vicar of Christ," when they say to me, "Holy Father," or "Your Holiness," or use titles similar to these, which seem even inimical to the Gospel. Christ himself declared: call no one on earth your father; you have but one Father in heaven. Do not be called 'Master', you have but one master, the Messiah" (Mt 23:9-10). These expressions, nevertheless, have evolved out of a long tradition, becoming part of common usage. One must not be afraid of these words either." You may think this is horrendous but it keeps getting worse. Consider what C. Mervyn Maxwell, professor of church history at Andrews University in Berrien Springs Michigan has to say about Rome, "the Roman Catholic church was virtually the Christian church in Western Europe for about a thousand years. Because of this early universality, both Protestants and Catholics may regard it as the embodiment of 'our' Christian heritage, for better or for worse." God Cares, vol. 1, p. 127. I do not know what's your opinion is on this, but my Christian heritage did not derive from Rome, this is blasphemy! His apostate father, S. Maxwell, also thinks very highly of Rome according to the monthly newsletter, Watchman's What of the Night,"In a sermon given at the University Church in Loma Linda, Maxwell, father of C. Mervyn. . .suggested "We must rethink our approach to our Roman Catholic friends." Having cited the Popes opening speech of the Council as a picture of the church loving humanity, the separated brethren and people who don't belong and all people of all faiths and religions, "he asked, "How can we reject an outstretched hand and be Christians?" He suggested that the sermons preached in the past revealing the atrocities of Rome and its blasphemous doctrines must now be scrapped (Present Truth, 1968, No.2.) Ibid. 2-3. I ask, why would B B. Beach, S. Maxwell and his son say such things? Mrs. White said, "it is the rejection of the Bible truth which makes men approach to infidelity. It is a backsliding church that lessons the distance between itself and the Papacy." Signs of the Times, Feb. 19th 1894. The god of this world is Satan! The Papacy claims to be the ruler of the world. Therefore, trying to unite with the Papacy is like uniting with the devil, that is why the bible says, "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God" (Ja. 4:4).

Adventist Ministers Guided by Jesuits

Derek Morris is an Adventist College religion teacher, with a Bachelor of arts degree from Columbia Union College, and Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees, from Andrews University (1987). This minister with all the wealth of knowledge of the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy turns to the Jesuits for spiritual directions. He wrote a twelve page study called, Spiritual Formation in Ministry, which he was fearful at the beginning to place his spiritual life at the hands of another, but after some encouragement he continued on. In his tract he explained what happened. "I was experiencing a high level of resistance [from within]. I was to learn later that such resistance is common, not only in the context of developing one's relationship with a spiritual friend, but also in the context of developing a relationship with God. In their book, The Practical of Spiritual Direction, Barry and Connoly spend an entire chapter exploring this common response of resistance." Derek Moris Spiritual Formation, pp. 8. The Spirit of God was convicting him of his apostasy, but it was to no avail. Barry and Conoly belongs to the Jesuit order called the Society of Jesus, and his crafty spirituality comes from none other than Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus:

" We [the authors] are both members of the society of Jesus and have, therefore, been strongly influenced by the spirituality of Loyola and his Spiritual Exercises." Practice of Spiritual Direction, pp. 11.

Ignatius of Loyola mind control methods was proven to be most fatal on its subjects because it had a lasting effect. Edmond Paris, a specialist on the Jesuits, in his book, The Secret History of the Jesuits, quotes Mr. Boehmer as saying, "Ignatius understood more clearly than any other leader of men who preceded him that the best way to raise a man to a certain ideal is to become master of his imagination." He goes on further and explains, "we imbue into him spiritual forces more lasting than all the best principles and doctrines; these forces can come up again to the surface, sometimes after years of not even mentioning them, and become so imperative that the will finds itself unable to oppose any obstacle, and has to follow their irresistible impulse (21)." Could you believe this? Derek Morris trains young ministers to enter into the ministry and he seek his spiritual advice from Jesuits and Ignatius of Loyola was the founder. What caused a man of this caliber to seek advice from one of the most ruthless organizations? Weakness, backsliding and knowing not what they believe: " Many are living in spiritual weakness and backsliding. They know not what they believe. Let us read and study the twelfth chapter of Daniel. It is a warning that we shall all need to understand before the time of the end. There are ministers claiming to believe the truth which are not sanctified through the truth." E.G. White, Manuscript Releases, vol. 15. p.228.

One Wicked Step at a Time

The first wicked step led to the Adventist, Evangelical connection in 1956-57 and that lead to the Adventist, Catholic compromise. Their involvement in the World Council of Churches lessons their idea of the prophetic role of the Papacy. This caused them to reject certain former teaching about the Papacy. This led to this astonishing statement by the Adventist Church, "although it is true that here was a period in the life of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church when the denomination took a distinctly anti-Roman Catholic viewpoint, and the term "hierarchy" was used in a pejorative sense to refer to the papal form of church governance, that attitude on the churches' part was nothing more than a manifestation of widespread anti-popery among conservative Protestant denominations in the early part of the last, and which has now been cosigned to the historical trash heap so far as the Seventh-Day Adventist Church is concerned." Excerpts legal Documents, p. 41. Who with a honest heart could pass by such a statement without speaking against it? This is a God given command, "Son of man, prophest against the shepherds of Israel." Ezekiel 34:2.

The Evangelical Connection

There is a group which sprang out of the Philadelphians, which is a new movement, calling themselves Adventist but are not, but belong to the synagogue of Satan. Revelation 3:9 says, "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie." This omega of apostasy hatched in 1956-57, when the elders of the Adventist Church met with a two respected personage of the Evangelical world Walter Martin and Donald Grey Barnhouse. What was the purpose of the meeting? To discuss doctrine! The Evangelicals pose a number of questions, and in response to those questions they published a book called Questions on Doctrine. At a close examination of this book on the key pillars on Adventism, the reader might wonder who wrote this book an Adventist or an Evangelical. On pages 381-83 we find the enigma of the perplexing Evangelical teachings. A comparison with the new theology and the real gospel will show why such a dilemma is present.

The False Teaching of the Sanctuary and The Nature of Christ

The Sanctuary from Questions on Doctrine, p. 381 "Jesus our surety entered the holy places, and appeared in the presence of God for us. But it was not with the hope of obtaining something for us at that time, or at some future time. No! He had already obtained it for us on the cross." Also in the same book, this is how far they drifted in their teachings on the human nature of Christ, "although born in the flesh, He was nevertheless God, and was exempt from the inherited passions and pollution's that corrupts the natural descendents of Adam." Ibid. 383.

It their recent book, Seventh-Day Adventists Believe, p. 315. col. 2. You would find a similar repetition, "the atonement, or reconciliation, was completed on the cross as foreshadowed by the sacrifices, and the penitent believer can trust in this finished work of our Lord." In the same book, they continue, "thus Christ's' humanity was not the Adamic humanity, that is, the humanity of Adam before the fall; nor fallen humanity, that is, in every respect the humanity of Adam after the fall. It was not the Adamic, because it had the innocent infirmities of the fallen. It was not the fallen, because it had never descended into moral impurity. It was, therefore, most literally our humanity, but without sin." Ibid. 47,49 cols.1,2.

The Correct Teaching of the Sanctuary and the Nature of Christ

The book which I am about to quote, was written four years before Question and Doctrine, by a prominent Adventist. Nichols correctly speaking on the "atonement" states as follow, "we believe that Christ's work of atonement was begun rather than completed on Calvary."

Rejecting the atonement is like rejecting Christ death on the cross, "The intercession of Christ in man's behalf in the sanctuary above is as essential to the plan of salvation as was His death upon the cross. By His death He began that work which after His resurrection He ascended to complete in heaven." Ellen G. White, Great Controversy p.489. Romans 8:3 describes the nature of Christ this way: "For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh." Another biblical example is in Philippians 2:7 "But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." In the proceeding quotes, Mrs. White goes on to explain her revelation from God on the Nature of Christ. Her understanding which according to "the law and the testimony" is set fort as follow:

"Jesus accepted humanity when the race had been weakened by four thousand years of sin. Like every child of Adam He accepted the results of the working of the great law of heredity." Desire of Ages, p.49.

"Christ did in reality unite the offending nature of man with his own sinless nature." Review & Herald. July 17, 1900.

The correct teaching of the Sanctuary and the Nature of Christ has been concisely and clearly stated. This should raise some questions in ones mind as too why the false teachings have crept its' way into the Church. When Israel was corrupted in the days of Isaiah, by false doctrines and paganism, he blamed the watchman as did Jeremiah blamed the people:

His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Isaiah 56:10.

The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? Jeremiah 5:31.

One of the Anti-Christ Doctrines Defined

The biblical definition of one of the anti-Christ doctrines of the last days, is to deny that Jesus came in the flesh: "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist." II John 1:7. These leaders strike at the heart of our theology, the blow was directed at the "Nature of Christ" and the impact was fatal to the Sanctuary; for if Christ did not take our fallen human nature, Jesus could not be the faithful and merciful high priest that the bible claim him to be.

Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:17.

Therefore, preaching a false doctrine about the human nature of Christ, automatically dampens the sanctuary message. Ellen White was shown that our faith would have nothing to stand on: "In a representation which passed before me, I saw a certain work being done by medical missionary workers. Our ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not seem to understand. The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar. Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone. . . ." The Upward Look, p.152.

Adventists Sponsor Billy Graham

There has been a great amount of coziness between the Adventist and Protestants. Billy Graham, the pope of Protestantism who points excatholics who came to the altar after the altar call, he advised them to go back to the Catholic Church. This fact is ducumented by David W. Cloud in his book Flirting with Rome. He quotes the "Calvary Contender as stating:

"According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the archdiocese sent forty trained counselors for the Crusade. After each crusade session, Catholics coming forward were linked up with Catholic counselors and referred to the Catholic Church (Calvary Contender, Jul. 1, 1992). Ibid. 43.

This documentation what I am about to show you is mind boggling, that the Adventist help sponsor a spiritual gangster as Billy Graham on his ecumenical tour to Hungary. Ponder on the information as it reads:

"Graham's visit was sponsored jointly by the Baptist Union and an alliance that included Seventh-Day Adventist, Pentecostal, and Methodist. The meeting were said to be the most ecumenical ones ever held in Hungary (National Christian Council Review, National Christian Council of India, May 1986)." Flirting with Rome, vol.1, p. 37.

To put a cloak of righteousness over their apostasy, they seek to find refuge in quoting Ellen White as saying: "Our ministers should seek to come near to the ministers of other denominations. Pray for and with these men, for whom Christ is interceding. A solemn responsibility is theirs. As Christ's messengers we should manifest a deep, earnest interest in these shepherds of the flock." Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6 p.78. I could understand when Ellen White said, "come near to the ministers of other denominations," but she never said to join or sponsor them in their apostasy. Ellen White gives an inch but the leaders have stretched it to a yard!

Satan's Plan is to Change the Leadership

In the Old Testament, one of Satan's plans for Israel was to change the leadership and it was successful. What was the result? The result was corruption, rejection and finally destruction! Ellen White said that the Adventist Church will change their leaders and the majority would not know.

"Men in positions of responsibility are in danger of changing leaders. This I know, for it has been plainly revealed to me." Series B. no. 2, p. 48.

"But I am now speaking of actual mistakes and errors that those who really love God and the truth sometimes commit. There is manifested on the part of men in responsible positions an unwillingness to confess where they have been in the wrong; and their neglect is working disaster, not only to themselves, but to the churches. . . you will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so." Review & Herald, vol. 2 p. 448-49. Dec.16, 1890.

Where Do We Draw the Line

I can show apostasy after apostasy, but the question remains, where do we draw the line when separation becomes a reality? Consider the abundance of light that the Seventh-Day Adventist Church received from God. The "Third Angels message," the testing message for these last days to the world was theirs to preach. Despite this great honor if the Adventist Church does not live up to this light [which they are presently not doing as you have read in the proceeding pages] they are in danger of never coming out of the depths of their apostasy. A perfect example of this is when Ellen White compared Capernaum to the Adventist Church. She said:

"Of those who boast of their light, and yet fail to walk in it, Christ says, "But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum [Seventh-day Adventists, who have had great light], which art exalted unto heaven [in point of privilege], shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee." Review & Herald, vol. 3, 08-01-93.

Let us consider Luke 3:8, when John perceived the hypocrisy of the Jewish leaders he said, "begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham." We can learn from instance that God is not dependent of any denomination to finish His work. But if He starts revealing His will to a select group of people, and they fail just like the Jews, He would gather out the faithful ministers and choose others. The evidence for this claim is in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy: "If doubts and unbelief are cherished, the faithful ministers will be removed from the people who think they know so much." Testimonies to Ministers, p. 410. This is contrary to what most leaders teach, they teach that the bad are shaken out, Ellen White taught the complete opposite. Consider what is about to be presented before you and weigh the evidence for yourselves

"The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life, He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the work of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But, if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action, if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach." E.G White, The Upward Look, p. 131.

The Wheat and the Tares

Most Adventists in whom I had discussed some of these issues with, shuffle around Ellen White writing like a deck of cards, and present this statement as the ace of their argument to stay in the church. They quote Ellen White as saying, "we are not to say what constitutes the wheat, and what is the tares. The time of the harvest will fully determine the character of the two classes specified under the figure of the tares and the wheat. The work of separation is given to the Angels of God; and not committed to the hands of any man." Testimonies to Ministers, p.47.

Prsently, Adventist believe that the wheat and the tares would be separated at the time National Sunday Law. Read and see how Ellen White explains herself and correlate this with what you have been taught:

"I then saw the third angel. Said my accompanying angel, "Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner." Early Writings, p.118.

"I was shown that the third angel, proclaiming the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, represents the people who receive this message and raise the voice of warning to the world."Testimonies for the Church, vol.1, p.77.

"The [third] angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message, symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people." The Spirit of Prophecy, vol.4, 199.

"The work of redemption involves consequences of which it is difficult for man to have any conception. "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him." 1 Cor. 2:9. As the sinner, drawn by the power of Christ, approaches the uplifted cross, and prostrates himself before it, there is a new creation. A new heart is given him. He becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus. Holiness finds that it has nothing more to require. God Himself is "the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus." Rom. 3:26. And "whom He justified, them He also glorified." Rom. 8:30. Great as is the shame and degradation through sin, even greater will be the honor and exaltation through redeeming love. To human beings striving for conformity to the divine image there is imparted an outlay of heaven's treasure, an excellency of power, that will place them higher than even the angels who have never fallen." Christ's Object Lessons, p.162-3.

It is worthy at this point to allow a friend of mine, who writes a monthly newsletter Omega Countdown, to express his understanding on the wheat and the tares: "It is the work of sepatating the wheat from the tares that is not committed to the hands of any man, not the separating of the saints from open sinners and apostates, and there is a very distinct difference! Tares are insincere Christians who hide their insincerity quite well. Judas was a tare. Open sinning apostates like Nimri is quite a different story. Was Phinesa judging Nimri a tare when he ran him through with a swork? No! He was separating an open sinner from the camp by death! Can you gainsay this truth?" Ron Beaulieu, Omega Countdown Ministries, February 1993, p.25.

The separation of the tares and the binding of the wheat, has been taking place since the time of Ellen White: "I see perplexities on every side. As character develops man and woman will take their position, for varied circumstances brought to bear upon them will cause them to reveal the spirit which prompts them to action. Every one will reveal the character of the bundle with which he is binding himself. The wheat is being bound up for the heavenly garner. The true people of God are now bound up for the heavenly garner. The true people of God are now pulling apart, and the tares are being bound in bundles ready to burn. Decided positions will be taken. Satan will move upon minds that have been indulged, upon men who have always had their own way, and anything presented to them in counsel or reproof to change their objectionable traits of character is considered faultfinding, binding them, restraining them, that they cannot have liberty to act themselves. The Lord in great mercy has sent messages of warning to them, but they would not listen to reproof. Like the enemy who rebelled in heaven, they do not like to hear, do not correct the wrong they have done but become accusers, declaring themselves misused and unappreciated. E.G. White, 1888 Materials, p.995.

The messengers, which God sends to deliver the messages of warning, is none other than the church triumphant. Which God uses to aid the church in every generation, in its necessity, but most of the time they don't take heed: "The members of the church triumphant,--the church in heaven--will be permitted to draw near to the members of the church militant, to aid them in their necessity." E.G. White, The Southern Watchmen, Sep. 8, 1903. There goes the heresy of Keavin Hayden, who believes that God will have a remnat within the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and by their faithful lives shake and purge the church from their evil. So automatically one belives the church will shift from the church militant to the church triumphant. What a false hope!

The Unpardonable Sin

A perfect example of the unpardonable sin is in Hebrew 6:4-6, "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost. And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame." Another biblical explanation can be found in James 4:17, "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."

What makes it unpardonable? As stated above, it is because the person or persons know what is right but persist in their wrong doings. Another classic example is what took place in 1844: "I was shown in a vision, and I still believe, there was a shut door in 1844. All who saw the light of the first and second Angel's messages and rejected that light were left in the proclamation of the message form heaven, and who afterward renounced their faith and pronounced their experience a delusion, there by rejected the spirit of God and it no longer pleaded with them." E.G. White, The Early Years, vol.1 p.260. Ron Beaulieu said it right when he expressed this statement: "refusing to receive and obey any of the three angel's messages, one rejects the light from heaven and falls from the favor of God: SHUT DOOR "As the churches refused to receive the first angel's message, they rejected the light from heaven and fell from the favor of God. They trusted to their own strength, and by opposing the first message placed themselves where they could not see the light of the second angel's message. But the beloved of God, who were oppressed, accepted the message, "Babylon is fallen," and left the churches." Early Writings, p.237. Omega Coundown Ministries, February 1996, p.18.

Unlike man, Jesus never changes: "Jesus is the same yesterday, and today, and for ever." Hebrews 13:8. My question to you is, if the Adventist church violates any one of the three angel's messages, what would God do to them? Matthew 22:7 has the answer: "But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city."

This frightening ordeal would have its counterpart in Ezekiel 9, with the general destruction of the wicked. The destroying angel, would begin at the santuary, [the professing SDA church] when there is a separation of sin and sinners. This is what the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy teach! What I am about to show should forever settle the separation issue. The Directory Christian Councils, states that the Seventh-Day Adventist Church is full members in the following countries: Hong Kong p.63, Bahamas p.99, Belize p.100, Hungary p.142, Sweden p.158. On page 224, the last page of the Directory Christian Councils has this astonishing to say: "In addition to the relationships and national councils of churches mentioned above, the WCC is in working relationships with many Christian World Communions, including the Anglican Consultative Council, Baptist World alliance, Disciples Ecumenical Conference of Seventh-Day Adventist . . ." "Since 1967 there has been a joint Working Group between the WCC and the Roman Catholic Church." Ibid 244.
Who Created the World Coucil of Churches?

It is important to know who created and founded the World Council of Churches, and where it is leading those who unite in their confederacy. A very well known author, Texe Marrs, who dedicated his life to exposing the evils that exist in world politics and religion, has a lot to say about the World Council of Churches:

"They [the Rockefellers] founded the blasphemous Parliament of the World's Religions, held in Chicago in 1993. Before that epic devilfest, the Rockefellers founded the Marxist-oriented World Council of Churches and National Council of Churches." Circle of Intrigue, p.145.

The Rockefellers are a group of international Bankers, who finance every evil you could ever concieve. Throughout the centuries they worked to further their goal, which is to create a New World Order. Gary H. Kah added another important piece of the puzzlel the Masonic connection: "The false ecumenical-interfaith unity being promoted today by the World Council of Churches. An organization that is strongly influenced by Freemasonry, is nothing new. It has been used for centuries to further the cause of world government." En Route To Global Occupation, p.109.

How much would it take before you will be convinced? For all those who like to be overwhelmed with evidence before they decide that the church has apostasized, I will proceed even further, but remember if you're convicted, Christ said that the knowledge which you have received will be your judge, in the last day: "He that rejected me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:47.

We must come to the realization that the elders of the church have made the church and many of its members become corrupt. The church in its present state is not a place to improve your spiritual life because it has become spiritually bankrupt!

"We must as a people arouse and cleanse the camp of Israel. Licentiousness, unlawful intimacy,and unholy practices are coming in among us in a large degree . . . We are in daner of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted. And filled with every unclean and hateful bird, and will we not be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?" E.G. White, Manuscript Release, No. 449, p. 17,18.

The Regular Lines have Proven to be Unfaithful!

The Regular lines (organization) have become full of irregular practices: "So often the same old difficulties arise and are presented in regard to disturbing the 'regular lines.' But God will work in some way to make His people understand that the regular lines have become full of irregular practices. . . God alone can make men understand that working on regular lines has led to irregular practices. God alone makes men's minds as they should be. The time has come when we should hear less in favor of the regular lines. If we can get away from the regular lines into something which, though irregular working which has led away from bible principle." E.G. White, Manuscript Release, #1450. p. 3,4 (1904). John the Baptist, Jesus, the apostle Paul and many others have been using these irregular lines, which have proven to be more successful than the regular lines. Nobody likes to be hated! That's why it is such a hard saying when duty requires it! "This is a hard saying who can here it? John 6:60.

Corporate Repentance

The leaders also deny the existence of corporate repentance. After reading this tract and seeing the evils that exist in the Church, it is easy for one to say, I am not commiting such sins, so therefore I should be excused from the condemnation that hangs over the heads of the culprits. For those of you that agree with the above, consider for a moment with sincerity and honesty, what Mr. White said:

"The plain, straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body, responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimony's vol. 3 p. 269

The Jesuit thinker in Adventism says, "sin with resultant guilt, stems from the exercise of free moral choice and rests upon personal accountability before God" . . . "In a matter of sin, God does not deal with groups of people of with committees. He does not hold a committee as such responsible for the actions that the committee takes. Even though a committee, or a church through its delegated representatives, may have made a wrong decision, in taking notice of their corporate decision God still hods the representative individuals who constituted the committee resposible for the votes they cast." Roy Adams, The Nature of Christ, p.103. Ouoting Arnold Wallendampf, Statement, as published in his book: What Every Adventist Should Know About 1888, p. 53.

The book, The Nature of Christ, was endorsed by leaders in high places. Here are the names, George R. Knight, Professor of Church History of Andrews University, William H. Shea, Associate Director of Biblical Researe Institute, Raoul Dederen, SDA Theological Seminary of Andrews University, and Robert Folkenberg, President of General Conference. Malachi Martin, the author of the book titled, The Key of This Blook is a former Jesuit and professor at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute. All these men mentioned above stand by the Jesuit theory of the denial of Corporate Repentance. This is just another repetition of Corporate Repentance but Jesuit style.

"Let's face it: Even atheists know the Church teaches that sin is, first and only, personnal. It involves the choice of individual will in a man of women who freely and knowingly violates God's revealed Law. In strict theological language, as anybody will tell you, there is no such thing as collective sin; the sin of a group. Much less, than, can a structure whether formed of stones and wook, or a bureaucratic arrangements be said to commit sin, to be sinful, to be in a state of sin."

In conclusion I'd like to say, the information you have just read is writen in Love. At no time do I revel in these above facts, but on the contrary I am saddened to see the state of the church. I will take this opportunity to quote from Ellen White and the Bible concerning these things.

"The Lord commanded one of his ancient servants, "Pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them; neither make intercession to me; for I will not hear thee." The prophet thus describes the sins which had called forth this fearful denunciation: "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so; and what will ye do in the end thereof?" "From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace." The apostles declare that this state of things will find its counterpart in the last days. Many have a form of godliness, but in their daily life deny the power thereof. They have ceased to be convicted of their sins or alarmed at their state. They say in their hearts, "The church is flourishing. Peace and spiritual prosperity are within her borders." The words of the prophet may well apply to these self-deceivers, "They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them." Review & Herald, vol. 1, 11-07-82.

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments: For this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgement, with every secret thing whether it be good or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13,14.
