Most Seventh-day Adventists are likened unto a people on a safari tour in Africa. They have their binoculars on and are looking way off in the distance for "The Enemy" ("right wing", "the christian coalition" or "the left wing, the Pope and the Vatican or the Apostate Protestants"). In the mean time, there is a giant alligator right at their back in their own denomination which is ready at any moment to pounce and devour them.
The Seventh-day Adventist Corporate structure has been heavily infiltrated by Jesuits and halfhearted, Laodicean preachers that oppress the present truth and those who dare to live and teach it.
I'm very sad to say that the same worldly minded sentiment that exists among the Catholics and apostate Protestants exists in the Seventh-day Adventist church at large as well.
"Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness (growing your beard) with contentment is great gain." 1 Timothy 6:5,6
We generally refuse to see the dangerous beast within which is ready at any moment to strike because we are too far sighted to face the reality that we are already following the Beast as a denomination.
Generally speaking, our leadership is violently opposed to any new light which Sister White specifically says we will have. Our leadership fires, strips of church positions and rejects, hates and persecutes those that teach the statute and judgment message of Malachi 4.
The SDA clergy says they believe in Ellen White's writings but fail to tell me what the "new light" is that she says we will have. This is only because they hate the statute and judgment message. If they do embrace this message wholeheartedly it would involve a cross that they are unwilling to carry. They will loose their cushy conference jobs, community standing in the sue happy, corrupt SDA corporate structure and their retirement package if they dare "squeak up" about the last Elijah message.
Our clergy are generally a bunch of cowards that are spending more time teaching against the law of God than they spend teaching obedience to it and their shaven face identifies them as apostate conformists.
The Seventh-day Adventist corporate structure is in bed with the Catholics and the apostate Protestants and anyone that is still financing the Seventh-day Adventist General Conference is either blind, living in a horrible state of denial or both.
