Media Influence to "Eliminate the GC"
« on: April 21, 2019, 11:54:33 AM »
We have kept most of the difficulties in the church in our private "SDA" Forums. We made an exception with the publishing of the rebellion by conferences ordaining women pastors in direct opposition to the vote of three General Conference Sessions. The world has been made aware of the situation and we felt that the world needed to know we as a people do not follow the ways of the world in making women leaders over men.

Today, we are posting a link to an apostate internet magazine which continues to give influence to their apostasy. They have published an article calling for the removal of the GC president and Vice President. The author of the article would if possible want the General Conference removed completely giving control to local churches. Why this attitude? Because they do not appreciate Bible and Spirit of Prophecy truth. Source

The apostate magazine is suggesting that we "eliminate the current GC President" at the next General Conference Session.  Following this they believe we need to "eliminate the Divisions and Unions." What will this accomplish? The author believes that the rebellion in the church is going to result in "a split of the Adventist Church."

The author is correct in seeing that a separation is happening before our very eyes. Jesus said this would happen. The church will see revival and reformation. There is a "shaking" taking place. He is apparently rejecting the Laodicean message and the Spirit of Prophecy. He thinks along with the apostate magazine that false gospels are not only acceptable, but ought to be encouraged. Let the church be a "big tent" where like the Roman Church, all are not only welcomed, but encouraged to preach and publish whatever they think good. This not new, Israel often followed the practice wherein "every man did that which was right in his own eyes." Judges 17:6.

The structure that God's church has is very good. It allows for the people to have the power to elect its leaders. It is a representative government. Why do we have so many unconsecrated leaders? Because we have so many unconsecrated  churches. The church remains in a Laodicean condition. When the churches are converted, then we shall have consecrated leaders at the local conferences. They will elect consecrated leaders in the unions and divisions. Those leaders who are consecrated in the church now, are a blessing from God. This apostate magazine has no spiritual discernment to recognize the blessings nor the curses which are in the church.

It is a fearful thing to have great light and blessing, to have many opportunities and privileges, and yet make no saving use of them. Those who do not make a saving use of their opportunities, will be condemned by the privileges God has granted to them; but those who walk in the light will have increased light. Those who have had the light of truth, and yet have failed to walk in the light, are under the same sentence of condemnation as were Chorazin and Bethsaida. Shall not these warnings be heeded? Shall not these admonitions have weight with us? In the near future it will be seen just who have been walking humbly with God, and who have been obeying his orders. Those who have been walking in the sparks of their own kindling will lie down in sorrow. It will be seen that they have made a terrible mistake. O let us awake! light is now shining; let the windows of the mind and heart be open to welcome the heaven-sent rays. Shall Jesus say of those who profess to obey the truth, and yet who fail to walk in its light, “In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: for this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them”? [Matthew 13:14, 15.] CE 140.

Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

You have correctly labeled that entity an "apostate  magazine," since they routinely disparage and attack our doctrines and those among our leaders who are faithful to present truth.  They should have the honesty and integrity to admit that they are not SDA's and disassociate themselves from the SDA Church.
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:  we have done that which was our duty to do.  Luke 17:10
