When the Church’s Press Runs Contrary to the Word of God

What's Trending

November 10, 2017

Jason Stevens

One would think, and even expect, that the official news organ of an established religious denomination would faithfully and consistently present newsworthy articles to its constituents in a way that upholds the standards of the church. And, ideally, these church standards would be faithful to the Word of God. But is this the case with the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s ANN (Adventist News Network)? Years of careful reading have caused this writer to doubt this very much, unfortunately.

The purpose of this article is to expose the direct contradiction of one recent ANN article to the Word of God and the Spirit of Prophecy, for as we are admonished in Isaiah 58:1, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgressions, and the house of Jacob their sins.” The article in question, written by Marcos Paseggi of Adventist Review and published on October 6, 2017, is titled “Annual Council Opens with Focus on World Mission.”[1]

Mr. Paseggi informs his readers that “Global Mission Centers were created by the world church to ‘help Adventists to know how to build bridges of understanding and friendship with people from major world religions and philosophies,’ according to the centers’ website.”[2] The Bible plainly teaches that believers are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers. “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14.

By reading such news articles from ANN, we either ignorantly (or willingly) accept fallacy, or, by the grace of God, our eyes are opened and we see that it is the regular lines of the denomination which have become thoroughly steeped in false teaching and preaching, and that we must speak out against it. In the instance mentioned above, we can see that the condition has metastasized, as the Global Mission Centers preach a false gospel while ANN regurgitates it through mass media.

Later, we learn that the Global Center for Adventist-Muslim Relations “advises members how to build friendship relations with respect and how to make sincere efforts to meet Muslims where they are,”[3] while the Center for East Asian Religions asserts that “Buddhists don’t believe in a supreme god or a corrupt human nature,”[4] and that “elements such as these can make spiritual conversations challenging.”[5] Instead of advising us to rise to the challenge, we are simply told that “beneficial conversations begin with understanding the Buddhist mindset.”[6] While it is true that Christ’s method of evangelism involved meeting the people where they were, and we are called to follow His example, we must not content ourselves with leaving the people where they are. God forbid! We must call the people “out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9. As Sister White counsels, “It is not safe for Christians to choose the society of those who have no connection with God, and whose course is displeasing to Him. . . . Many feel that they must make concessions to please their irreligious relatives and friends. As it is not always easy to draw the line, one concession prepares the way for another, until those who were once true followers of Christ are in life and character conformed to the customs of the world. The connection with God is broken.”[7]

Pope Francis Plan to Take Over the World (2018)

Pope Francis Plan to Take Over the World (2018)

Published on Oct 29, 2017

Pope Francis has a SHOCKING Plan for 2018.

Exposed - the Jesuit plan to counter the protestant reformation. As we draw close to the 500 year anniverary of the reformation on 31st October 2017, the agenda to re-unite Christian churches under the Roman Catholic Apostate Religion is underway. Despite a long history of persecution, matyrdom and heretical doctrines, some groups of protestant Christians are embracing this Papal Templar scheme with open arms.

I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away. They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. John 16: 1-4 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.

If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. John 15: 18-21

Vatican summit seeks comprehensive, global healthcare reform

Inés San Martín

Nov 17, 2017


Pope Francis shakes hands with a volunteer during a surprise visit to a small facility near St. Peter's Square where doctors on a volunteer basis give poor people medical exams, at the Vatican, Thursday, Nov. 17, 2017. Francis on Thursday decried that, increasingly, only the privileged can afford sophisticated medical treatments and urged lawmakers to ensure that health care laws protect the “common good.” (Credit: L'Osservatore Romano/Pool Photo via AP.)

At a time when healthcare reform remains a hot-button issue in the United States, a Vatican summit is reminding the world that fully one-third of the human population has no access to healthcare or medicines at all, and around the world the cost of drugs and medical treatment often pushes people into poverty.

ROME - All over the world, questions abound about who has access to healthcare, and how they pay for it. In the U.S., debt caused by healthcare costs contributes to 62 percent of personal bankruptcy cases. Globally, 100 million people slide into poverty as a result of essential medical care payments.

It’s worth remembering, however, that fully one third of the world’s population has no access to needed medicines to begin with.

In the case of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which affects 25 million people in Africa, those who need treatment often have to pay 18 times more than in the United States because of the monopoly of pharmaceutical industries. Hepatitis C affects 1 in five people around the world, for most of whom it’s a death sentence because they can’t afford the medicines that would cure them in just eight weeks.

Life expectancy at birth in sub-Saharan Africa is 46 years, while in countries such as Italy it’s over 80. In the former, however, an estimated 6 million children last year didn’t reach the age of five.

Pope rebukes climate deniers as 'perverse' in Bonn message


November 16, 2017 Updated: November 16, 2017 4:31am

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Thursday rebuked those who deny the science behind global warming and urged negotiators at climate talks in Germany to avoid falling prey to such "perverse attitudes" and instead accelerate efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

Francis issued a message to the Bonn meeting, which is working to implement the 2015 Paris accord aimed at capping global emissions.

In it, Francis called climate change "one of the most worrisome phenomena that humanity is facing." He urged negotiators to take action free of special interests and political or economic pressures, and to instead engage in an honest dialogue about the future of the planet.

Francis didn't cite any countries by name, but the United States has announced it is withdrawing from the Paris accord, and President Donald Trump has nominated several people in his administration who question scientists' conclusions that human activity is behind the global rise in temperatures. At the same time, the U.S. administration has promoted the use of fossil fuels like coal for U.S. energy needs.

In his landmark 2015 environmental encyclical, Francis said global warming is "mainly" due to human activity and he called for fossil fuels to be progressively phased out without delay.

In his message, the Argentine pope denounced that efforts to combat climate change are often frustrated by those who deny the science behind it or are indifferent to it, those who are resigned to it or think it can be solved by technical solutions, which he termed "inadequate."

"We must avoid falling into these four perverse attitudes, which certainly don't help honest research and sincere, productive dialogue," he said.

Big Papa: Pope gets white-and-yellow Lamborghini

Nov 15 2017, 5:34 pm ET

by Reuters

Pope Francis blesses a Lamborghini donated to him by the luxury sports car maker, at the Vatican on Nov. 15, 2017. The car will be auctioned off by Sotheby's, with the proceeds going to charities including one aimed at helping rebuild Christian communities in Iraq that were devastated by the Islamic State group. L'Osservatore Romano / Pool Photo via AP

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis received some hot new wheels on Wednesday in the form of a white-and-yellow Lamborghini but he won't be using it on the tree-shaded roads of the Vatican gardens.

The donated Lamborghini Huracan, which normally sells for more than $200,000, was signed by the pope outside his Vatican residence and will be auctioned by Sotheby's, with proceeds given to the pontiff to help the needy.

The Vatican said all the money would go to projects to help Christians return to rebuild their homes in Iraq's Nineveh Plains that were destroyed by Islamic State militants.

They will also go to help female victims of human trafficking and forced prostitution and to two Italian groups which provide medical services in central Africa.

Francis has shunned the papal limousines used by his predecessors in favour of a simple blue Ford Focus.

Looking at Laudato Si’ in Theory and Practice

NOVEMBER 13, 2017


Ronald Reagan once said that an economist is someone who sees something happen in practice and wonders if it could work in theory. The new book, Pope Francis and the Caring Society, appears like a team of economists forced to study the encyclical Laudato Si’ in theory and then wonder if it might work in practice. Most of the team members answer the question with a qualified no.

Published by the Independent Institute, the work was written as a sincere effort to heed the pontiff’s call for “dialogue” on the economic and ecological issues underlying the controversial encyclical. It makes no attempt to discuss the papal document’s equally contentious theological issues. Rather, it provides the sound economic and ecological teaching that is missing in the debate. Such issues need to be addressed urgently to dispel confusion.

The foreword by the late Michael Novak notes that the book initiates a debate that has the added benefit of educating its readers on the Church’s teaching on many issues like natural law and other moral and economic principles that would otherwise remain clouded. This alone makes the book valuable.

Crossing the Divide: The 2nd Annual Social Justice Summit


Crossing the Divide: The 2nd Annual Social Justice Summit

8 November 2017 | Alisa Williams

The second annual Adventists for Social Justice Summit, entitled “Crossing the Divide” occurred on November 3-5, 2017 on the campus of Washington Adventist University. The ASJ has come a long way since its creation a year ago. In addition to hosting its second summit with attendance nearing 200, there are now also a dozen or so local chapters, and an active Facebook group where over 5,000 members share and discuss issues affecting the world.

The Summit began with vespers Friday evening, with keynote speaker Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, professor of church growth and evangelism at North Park University in Chicago.

Dr. Rah spoke on “The Need for Lament in Troubled Times.” In both his ASJ presentation and his recent book, Prophetic Lament, he discusses that “what we’re missing in our pursuit to change the world is just the right amount of disruption.”

“There are times when disruption and confusion are actually a good thing. Sometimes God brings these into our lives because otherwise, why would we want to change?”

Lament is the disruption we require, continued Rah. Lament appears frequently in the Bible; 40% of the Psalms are laments. But we, as Christians, want to jump to celebration without first focusing on suffering. In a typical Christian hymnal, 80-85% are celebratory hymns. In contemporary Christian music, only 5-10% are about lament.

Because we’re missing lament in our story, we have the inability to recognize injustice and to bring God’s justice to our society, said Rah.

San Diego bishop says gun control is a social justice issue

Bishop Robert W. McElroy of San Diego passes a banner showing Pope Francis before the start of a conference on building a world free from nuclear weapons, at the Vatican Nov. 10.

Bishop Robert McElroy says gun control is a social justice issue of interest to the US Catholic bishops, and criticized the gun lobby for its "organized opposition to gun control, taking the position that any limitation against guns is a limitation on the core rights of individuals." He also said American military action cannot have any positive role in resolving the current crisis around North Korea.

ROME- Gun control is a social justice issue of concern to America’s Catholic bishops, according to Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego, who was recently at a Vatican conference to talk about the contributions the Catholic Church can make regarding nuclear disarmament.

“One of the problems is the organized opposition to gun control, taking the position that any limitation against guns is a limitation on the core rights of individuals,” McElroy told Crux on Friday.

“When all the firsthand accounts from FBI agents, CIA operatives, local law enforcement and citizen eye witnesses are considered in the aggregate, it’s obvious that the CIA did it. No one else had the capability to pull of such a convoluted scheme. Nor did any other party have the necessary power and influence to cover it up for 50 plus years. What very few folks are aware of is the extent to which the MOSSAD and MI6 were also deeply involved. Particularly in planning the assassination.”

There is now a considerable amount of high integrity evidence available in the public domain which clearly demonstrates that President John F. Kennedy was killed by a massive and complex conspiracy coordinated by the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.).

JFK Assassination: Classic CIA EXECUTION Plan and COVERUP

In fact, the abundance of JFK assassination information and data, that can be found on the Internet alone, proves conclusively that the C.I.A. was directly responsible for that military-style murder in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

What has also emerged from the volumes of evidence, both hard and circumstantial, is that Lee Harvey Oswald played no part in the assassination plot.

Pope reaffirms conscience as heresy debate divides church

Associated Press

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis has reaffirmed the "primary" role of using one's conscience to navigate tough moral questions in his first comments since he was accused of spreading heresy by emphasizing conscience over hard and fast Catholic rules.

Francis issued a video message Saturday to a conference on his controversial 2016 document on family life, "The Joy of Love." The document has badly divided the Catholic Church, with some commentators warning that it risks creating a schism given its cautious opening to letting divorced and civilly remarried Catholics receive Communion.

Francis told the conference that priests must inform the consciences of the faithful "but not substitute them." And he stressed the distinction between one's conscience — where God reveals himself — and one's ego that thinks it can do as it pleases.

Only a Jesuit could do such a thing

October 31,  2017, is the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of All Saints church, and other churches in Wittenberg, Germany on this date in 1517, as a protest of the Roman Catholic practice of selling indulgences.
This is considered as the start of the Protestant Reformation, and is commemorated as Reformation Day.

In 2016, on Reformation Day, Francis I, the Bishop of Rome, met with leaders of the Lutheran World Federation in Lund, Sweden to commemorate 2017 to eliminate division and fragmentation among their respective churches.  Well, the 500th Anniversary is here, and the divisions seem to have been overcome since the pledge for unification was made in 2016.

The Roman Catholic church celebrated an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy from December 8, 2015, through November 20, 2016, as declared by the papal Bull, Misericordiae Vultus.
Note that the Pontiff of Rome met with the Lutheran World Federation in Sweden on October 31, 2016, almost 3 weeks before the end of the Roman Catholic Jubilee of Mercy (Year).

The Merriam-Webster
Definition of Jesuit
1 :a member of the Roman Catholic Society of Jesus founded by St. Ignatius Loyola in 1534 and devoted to missionary and educational work
2 :one given to intrigue or equivocation

Martin Luther's 95 Theses were primarily an objection and a refutation of the Roman Catholic practice of forgiving 'sins' for money.

During the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy of the Catholic Church, sins were forgiven as an act of compassion by priests around the world.

What is so ironic about the Roman Pontiff celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, is that Martin Luther, the Reformer was opposed to the practice of selling of indulgences.   Though the Holy See may not have sold Indulgences during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy;  they offered Indulgences as an act of charity.  Either way, they were pardoning sins, which only God can do.  So, the Roman Pontiff has taken part in something that I believe Martin Luther would not have approved.  In fact, Luther was a Protestant, and believed in Sola Scriptura, and not the dogmas of the Roman Catholic church, which he had left following his conversion.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the Bishop of Rome, or as he named himself Francis I, is a Jesuit after all.  And only a Jesuit would participate in an Event commemorating a Protest against the church he himself represents as its figurehead, no less.  You see, duality is one of a Jesuit's favorite techniques.

Women as Christian Laborers

Women as Christian Laborers

By Mrs. E. G. White

He who died to redeem man from death, loves with a divine love; and he says to his followers: “This is my commandment that ye love one another as I have loved you.” Christ showed his love for the fallen race by his actions. The true child of God will be Christlike; and as he grows in the knowledge of the truth, and is sanctified through the truth, he will be more and more like Christ, and more desirous to save souls, the purchase of his blood.

Some can do more than others; but all can do something. Women should not feel that they are excused because of their domestic cares. They should become intelligent as to how they can work most successfully and methodically in bringing souls to Christ. If all would realize the importance of doing to the utmost of their ability in the work of God, having a deep love for souls, feeling the burden of the work upon them, hundreds would be engaged as active workers who have hitherto been dull and uninterested, accomplishing nothing, or at most but very little.

Charlottesville Interfaith Group Co-Led by Adventist Pastor to Advocate for Affordable Housing

November 2, 2017: Daniel Xisto, the pastor of Charlottesville Seventh-day Adventist Church, is co-president of a IMPACT, an interfaith coalition comprising nearly 30 congregations in the Charlottesville, Virginia area. At their 12th annual assembly on October 24, the group voted to focus on campaigning for affordable housing in their community.

At the assembly, congregational caucuses voted to focus on affordable housing instead of on two other pressing issues: impoverished living conditions for immigrants and access to healthcare.

Charlottesville’s The Daily Progress reported that the decision was made after listening to testimony from community residents struggling with social challenges.

Xisto (recently interviewed by Adventist Today in relation to this summer’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville) said that the majority of his congregation had hoped to focus on helping the immigrant community.

He nevertheless supported the push for affordable housing and was moved after listening to an elderly woman speak about her challenges to pay rent for her basement apartment.

“To know that we had a grandmother in our midst who is having a hard time paying her bills and who has to walk a lot to get to her home, it’s really sad to me,” said the Adventist pastor.

Pastor Jim Bleakley, of Charlottesville Vineyard Christian Church, led the coalition in a prayer addressing the other issues of immigrant living conditions and healthcare.

“Even though we haven’t chosen to go in those directions, we know, Lord, that you’re still at work,” Bleakley said. “We trust those things (to) your hands, Lord.”

Progress reports on two previous focus areas—combating substance abuse and improving elder care—were given at the assembly.

IMPACT will hold its other annual meeting in the spring. This meeting, titled the Nehemiah Action, specifically seeks commitments from community leaders in support of social change priorities.

An Update on The Lesbian Couple Baptized Into the Chico SDA Church

November 10, 2017

Gerry Wagoner

On February 2 of this year, Fulcrum7 broke a news story about a lesbian couple that was baptized into the Chico Seventh-day Adventist Church in northern California.

Alice Machado was baptized by Ginger Harwood, a former associate professor at the La Sierra University theology department.

Some of you may recall that on February 2, 2013, Ginger Harwood and Kendra Valentine (formally Haloviak) were both ordained as Seventh-day Adventist ministers, even though the action was out of harmony with the expressed will of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Ginger Harwood is a long-time supporter of LGBT+ activism. Fast forward three years and Ginger Harwood is knowingly baptizing a “married’ lesbian into the Chico Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Due to wide exposure of the story on Fulcrum7, the NAD was obliged to issue a statement on the situation at Chico. Near the end of the statement are these words:
The North American Division has full confidence in the leadership of the Northern California Conference (NCC) in addressing this issue.

After the baptism of Amber and Alice Machado, Jim Pedersen, Ricardo Graham and Dan Jackson were each contacted repeatedly about the situation, and asked to recommend appropriate disciplinary measures for Dan Wysong of the Chico Church. They apparently did nothing about it, until the story broke.

On October 10 2017, the president of the Northern California Conference sent this letter out to pastors in the NCC:

Solstice Celebrations From Around the World

WRITTEN BY: Alison Eldridge


The winter solstice, longest night of the year, falls on December 21 or 22 in the Northern Hemisphere and June 20 or 21 in the Southern. Since ancient times, people all over the world have recognized this important astronomical occurrence and celebrated the subsequent “return” of the Sun in a variety of different ways. Old solstice traditions have influenced holidays we celebrate now, such as Christmas and Hanukkah. Here are some solstice traditions both new and old to help light your way to longer days.


Tom Bean/Corbis

Soyal is the winter solstice celebration of the Hopi Indians of northern Arizona. Ceremonies and rituals include purification, dancing, and sometimes gift-giving. At the time of the solstice, Hopi welcome the Kachinas, protective spirits from the mountains. Prayer sticks are crafted and used for various blessings and other rituals.



The Persian festival Yalda, or Shab-e Yalda is a celebration of the winter solstice in Iran that started in ancient times. It marks the last day of the Persian month of Azar. Yalda is viewed traditionally as the victory of light over dark, and the birthday of the sun god Mithra. Families celebrate together with special foods like nuts and pomegranates and some stay awake all night long to welcome the morning sun.

Inside America's Largest Religious Revival You Know Nothing About


For decades, demographic studies have indicated the steady decline of religion in America, but new measures suggest at least one religion in America is alive and well.

By Heather Smith

November 10, 2017

For decades, demographic studies have indicated the steady decline of religion in America, but new measures suggest that, on the contrary, at least one religion in America is alive and well, thriving in every community, and claiming devoted adherents in nearly every household.

This new religious revival has remained under the radar in large part because its adherents do not claim any religious attachment to this social institution, but by every measure of behaviors typically associated with religion, it is deceitful to label it as anything less. Although it shies away from adopting an overarching organization or name for itself, for the purposes of this study, it will be considered under the name Athletica.

What must first impress outsiders studying the life of Athletica is how wholehearted is the devotion of its followers. These disciples are willing to sacrifice almost limitlessly where their dedication to this faith is concerned. Money, time, health, and even family may all be expended for the sake of bettering oneself within Athletica, and it is no exaggeration to say its members orient their lives around the strictures of their religion’s demands.
Forget One Service For Week. We Have Daily Meetings

Whereas in traditional American Christianity followers would regularly meet together once or twice a week (a timetable most now find unduly onerous), members of Athletica gather four, five, six, or even seven days a week. Despite the significant time demands, the families of adherents dutifully and unflinchingly keep these meeting commitments and accept as normal the stringent penalties imparted to those who miss a gathering—penalties usually enacted by limiting the devotee’s rights of participation in important group ceremonies.

Nor are the youngest members of Athletica uninitiated in their family’s devotion. Athletica parents regularly begin teaching their children its basic skills as soon as they are able to toddle, and some begin their benevolent indoctrination well before that by dressing their infants in tiny versions of the liturgical vestments. By age four or five, their parents have already catechized most of these youngsters in the basic tenets of Athletica, though this pious education will continue to deepen through daily family conversations, oral and written retellings of important historical moments in Athletica, and inclusion in the essential Athletica ceremonies.

Eager young zealots of elementary age and upward often relish memorizing not only the many Athletica rules, but also masses of historical information about specific persons and events. Although it is hard to believe such memorization would be undertaken voluntarily, there is no trace of a “drill and kill” mentality about this phenomenon. These youngsters apparently love this imparted faith enough that they simply cannot help trying to absorb everything about it that they can, and they especially find pleasure in learning of the great heroes of Athletica’s past, whom they inevitably long to emulate.

Andrews University Approves Creation of Official LGBT Student Support Group

Andrews University Approves Creation of Official LGBT Student Support Group

9 November 2017 | Alisa Williams

The Andrews University Board of Trustees, which met on campus in October, has approved the creation of an official LGBT+ student support group.

The statement regarding the university’s commitment to providing this group appeared in the October 26 edition of the campus newspaper, Student Movement, and follows in full below:

Over the past two years, Andrews University has worked with a team of faculty, staff, students and church leaders to develop a Bible-based framework that fully reflects Seventh-day Adventist beliefs and values regarding sexual orientation. The resulting document, first published in the 2016-2017 Student Handbook, outlines a commitment to providing a safe, caring and informed campus environment for LGBT+ students. Guided by the framework, the Student Experience and Faith Development subcommittee of the Andrews University Board of Trustees voted this week to approve a plan for a thoughtfully designed, supportive group on campus for LGBT+ students. The subcommittee looks forward to receiving periodic progress reports from the University and student participants.

Research conducted recently by our Andrews University professors found that a significant number of Adventist young adults who identify as LGBT+ have experienced a great deal of suffering and rejection from family members and faith communities. The University’s goal is to engage these students spiritually and support them emotionally as they navigate their sexuality and/or gender identity. More information about this University-based group will be made available to students over the next few weeks as plans unfold.

This statement is part of a detailed document drafted by the University’s LGBT+ task force, in conjunction with LGBT+ students, called the “Haven Constitution and Bylaws.” Steve Yeagley, assistant vice president for Student Life, said the full document is only for internal use at this time “while we make the transition to providing University-based care for our LGBT+ students.”

Yeagley also explained that this new group will not function as a typical gay-straight alliance (GSA) found on other college campuses. Instead, it is designed to be a confidential, members-only group that will exist solely for the support of LGBT+ students, including those who are questioning or have not yet fully disclosed their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Unlike student-led clubs and organizations, this group will be co-led by a team of two faculty/staff members and two LGBT+ students. We have tried to build a collaborative structure that maximizes the valuable insights of both University personnel and our LGBT+ students. We are now in the process of forming the leadership team and will work with them to make the final arrangements.”

The group will be overseen by a 10-person Advisory Panel and chaired by the director of the Andrews University Counseling & Testing Center. “The Advisory will be made up of faculty, staff and students (including LGBT+ students) from across campus, with our vice president for Diversity and Inclusion serving as secretary,” said Yeagley.

Since 2011, an unofficial LGBT+ group, AULL4One, has existed at Andrews University. When asked if the university-sponsored group would replace AULL4One, Yeagley replied, “[AULL4One] has come to hold a special place in the hearts and lives of many. We want to honor that investment and have not stipulated the future of AULL4One. Our goal has been to work with the LGBT+ student community to create a University-based group that will meet their needs, while also offering the benefits of institutional support.”

Eliel Cruz, founder of AULL4One and LGBT activist, expressed appreciation for the steps the university has taken in recent years to support its LGBT+ students with a safe environment in which to learn and grow:

I never thought that an official LGBT group would be formed at Andrews University just a few years after my graduation. This is the fruits of immense labor by LGBT students on campus asking for Andrews University to grant them space to be able to thrive. I’m grateful for the work these students have done and the assistance and cooperation of Andrews University student life and administration. This will, without a doubt, be life-saving.”

Though excited about the formation of an official group, Cruz is disappointed with the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s official stance on LGBT+ members and Andrews University’s adherence to that theological stance in its Student Handbook:

While there is lots of reason to celebrate Andrews University’s addition of Haven, I find it difficult to reconcile their non-affirming stance with their emphasis on LGBT persons’ well-being. I understand the complexities and politics of being a large institution under the eye of the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. I lived those politics as a student. But after graduation, I’ve been convicted that any attempt to remedy the disparately high number of LGBT people who suffer from mental health issues and suicide is futile without first reckoning with the source of that violence: non-affirming theology toward LGBT people. I would say that Andrews University is attempting to put out a fire they are simultaneously fueling because of the Adventist Church’s official theological stance on LGBT people which the University follows.”

Alexis Thomas, current president of AULL4One, who has been involved in the creation process of Haven, sees the approval of an official group as a positive step forward for the University. In an official statement from the president, she wrote:

I am absolutely ecstatic about the Haven Constitution being approved! In fact, that just might be the biggest understatement I’ve made all year. Words really can’t express the joy of seeing something we’ve been striving so hard for finally come into fruition. The years of meetings, patience, and diligence have finally paid off. This is not just a victory for us as current LGBT+ students at Andrews University but a victory for students of the past and most importantly of the future. Haven will ensure that any student (presently or in the future) who doesn’t fit into the “typical” box of cis and heterosexual receives a much needed safe space to express themselves openly. We happily welcome allies as well, with the main focus of course being LGBT+ students. This is much like how AULL4One operates currently, however, this group will be official. Therefore, we are now permitted to meet on campus and advertise to the larger body of students that AULL4One just wasn’t able to reach...This is most certainly not the end of AULL4One by any means, though. The faithful, little group that was basically a best kept secret will still exist side-by-side with Haven…We are excited to experience, learn, and grow as Haven grows! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue onward and upward!

Haven’s first meeting is slated for the end of Fall Semester.

Explosive Book Alleges Underage Gay Sex at Vatican Seminary

Explosive Book Alleges Underage Gay Sex at Vatican Seminary

by Rodney Pelletier • • November 10, 2017
Copy sent to Vatican criminal prosecutor for further investigation

VATICAN CITY ( - A Vatican watchdog is claiming in a new book there has been homosexual abuse of underage seminarians at a Vatican-run minor seminary.

Gianluigi Nuzzi, an Italian journalist who was a big part of the 2015 "VatiLeaks II" scandal, has released a new book titled Original Sin.

He alleges there has been homosexual sex abuse in the Vatican's St. Pius X pre-seminary for middle and high schoolers, and includes a letter from a gay ex-seminarian who claims that his roommate, who was underage at the time, was being visited by a priest at night for gay sex.

Nuzzi adds that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) was informed in 2014 and claimed no abuse had taken place.

He goes further to speak about the gay lobby in the Vatican (which has been confirmed by both Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI) and its continuing influence. In July 2017, reports revealed that Vatican police raided a cocaine-fueled gay orgy at an apartment for top Vatican officials.

Nuzzi also includes more information on his earlier investigations into the Vatican's finances, revealing an egregious mishandling of funds, especially millions of dollars in bank accounts maintained under the names of dead popes like Paul VI and John Paul II.
These unauthorized accounts must not pay out to companies of friends, of chums, of lovers.Tweet

What became known as VatiLeaks II came out in 2015 after it came to light that Nuzzi and Emiliano Fittipaldi — another journalist — received information from three members of a Vatican finance commission tasked by Pope Francis to investigate the Vatican's finances.

Both Msgr. Lucio Balda and Italian laywoman Francesca Chaouqui were convicted by a Vatican court. Nuzzi and Fittipaldi were put on trial by the same court in 2016 but were not convicted because it was found the Vatican didn't have jurisdiction.

As a result of his investigations, Nuzzi wrote his books Via Crucis and Merchants in the Temple to expose how, as he alleges, Vatican officials care more about money and influence than souls.

Nuzzi addresses scandals like how Peter's Pence, the pope's charity for the poor, only gives $2 out of every $10 to the poor. A Vatican official defended the practice in 2016, asking, "Do we want to bring the amount destined to the poor from two euros to six euros? Out of 4,000 employees, we'd have to fire 400. We prefer not to give the Italian government this additional weight and hold to Pope Francis' recommendation — reform, but in a way in which no one loses their job."

He also compared Pope Francis to Pope Benedict XVI, saying that Francis claimed, "I want to govern as well. I want to do politics. I want to look at the accounts. These unauthorized accounts must not pay out to companies of friends, of chums, of lovers."

He continued, "How come this library has increased in cost from 100 to 200? Who has stolen that money? Be careful about the investments."

Pope Francis: It hurts me to see them using mobile phones in Mass (lay, priests and bishops)

Alleged gay sex in Vatican dorm, shady banking: New book


By The Associated Press

ROME — Nov 9, 2017, 12:01 PM ET

The Associated Press

The Italian journalist who was put on trial by the Vatican for publishing confidential documents has penned a new book alleging a host of Catholic sins, including gay sex in the dormitory of the Vatican's youth seminary.

Gianluigi Nuzzi's "Original Sin" went on sale Thursday. At a news conference, Nuzzi said his lawyers had hand-delivered a copy to the Vatican's criminal prosecutor since at least one of the seminarians was a minor at the time of the alleged escapades. The Vatican didn't immediately comment.

The book reproduces documents from the Vatican's scandal-marred bank, showing multi-million-dollar accounts in the name of Popes Paul VI and John Paul II and their secretaries. And it alleges that hidden powers in the Vatican were blocking reforms of Pope Francis and his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

The Peril of Extreme Views

22. The Peril of Extreme Views

I expected ere this to see you and talk with you, or write to you; but I have not been able to do either, neither am I now able; but I feel a deep interest in you and am desirous that you shall not be separated from the work. I have not strength to do justice in conversation with you; your mind is so quick and your tongue so fluent, that I fear I should become very much wearied, and that which I might say would not remain distinct in your mind.

I see your danger; you can readily put your thoughts into words. You put things in a strong light; and your language is not guarded. Your views on some points are so expressed that you make your brethren afraid of you. This need not be. You should not try to get as far from your brethren as you can, making it appear that you do not see alike.

I have been shown that your influence for good is greatly lessened because you feel it your duty to express your ideas on certain points which you do not fully comprehend yourself, and which, with all your efforts, you cannot make others comprehend. I have been shown that it was not necessary for you to feel that you must dwell upon these points. Some of your ideas are correct, others incorrect and erroneous.

If you would dwell on such subjects as Christ's willingness to forgive sins, to receive the sinner, to save that which is lost, subjects that inspire hope and courage, you would be a blessing. But while you strive to be original and take such extreme views, and use such strong language in presenting them, there is danger of doing much harm. Some may grasp your thought and seem to be benefited, but when tempted and overcome, they lose courage to fight the good fight of faith.

The Messengers*

As ministers preach Christ crucified,
what topics should they focus on?

*See Appendix.

The Lord has often given me a view of the situation and wants of the scattered jewels who have not yet come to the light of the present truth, and has shown that the messengers should speed their way to them as fast as possible, to give them the light. Many all around us only need to have their prejudices removed and the evidences of our present position spread out before them from the Word, and they will joyfully receive the present truth. The messengers should watch for souls as they that must give account. Theirs must be a life of toil and anguish of spirit, while the weight of the precious but often-wounded cause of Christ rests upon them. They will have to lay aside worldly interests and comforts and make it their first object to do all in their power to advance the cause of present truth and save perishing souls.

At Vatican, ‘Tenets of Faith’ Seen as Crucial in Climate Change Effort

NOV. 4, 2017

VATICAN CITY — Religious leaders need to tell congregations that global warming can affect not just the environment, but also the spread of diseases and other threats to human health, participants said at a Vatican conference on Saturday on climate change, an issue that has been a priority of Pope Francis.

Persuasion “starts with the tenets of faith” more than with scientific data, said the Rev. Leith Anderson, president of the United States-based National Association of Evangelicals, noting that most of the world’s population has some religious affiliation. “Environmental catastrophes” like recent storms, flooding and droughts, he said, “create opportunities to persuade.”

The Rev. Mitchell C. Hescox, president of the Evangelical Environmental Network, said he had given hundreds of talks on the issue. “Many evangelicals believe in climate change or understand the science in climate change, but they still see it as a future event,” he said. “It’s not something they have to worry about, and that is what we have to change.”

Mr. Hescox added: “The way to move conservatives around the world is to talk about how it impacts or affects their children, their own lives.”

The three-day conference on public health and the planet, which ended Saturday, was hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. The conference reviewed studies and data that have emerged since Francis issued a forceful 2015 encyclical that highlighted the social and ethical issues caused by climate change, including mass migration and famine.

The participants shared “the most recent solid science on how climate change and air pollution undermines health, increases chronic diseases and the early results on how it impacts the brain,” said Joachim von Braun, the president of the Pontifical Academy. “Science is not just pointing at the environmental consequences of climate change, but also human health consequences” that affect both the poor and the wealthy.

Jerry Brown, the governor of California, who also spoke at the conference, underlined the importance of religious leaders’ involvement. “Until religious leaders from every part of the world and every denomination are engaged, we will not be able to move aside the huge rock of indifference, complacency and inertia,” he said.

“The American people in the majority are very much in support of serious climate action,” said Mr. Brown, who will head to the United Nations’ climate change conference this coming week in Bonn, Germany.

While governments have responsibility to enact change, he said, individuals also have an obligation. Unless people reorient their habits and way of life, he said, it will be difficult to reverse the changes affecting the planet.

Deadliest Church Shooting in American History Kills at Least 26

Nick Wagner/AP


A gunman in ‘full gear’ walked into First Baptist Church outside San Antonio, Texas, and opened fire, killing scores and wounding more than a dozen, including children.

At least 26 people are dead after a gunman opened fire inside a Texas church on Sunday morning, officials say.

The shooting occurred at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, approximately 30 miles from San Antonio, around 11:30 a.m. The shooter, who is believed to have acted alone, fled the church on foot and was killed by police, officials said. Police told reporters that the victims range in age from 5 to 72, with approximately 20 wounded being treated at area hospitals.

The shooter has been identified as Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, of nearby New Braunfels, Texas. Kelley was married and his mother-in-law listed a P.O. box in Sutherland Springs as a mailing address. His LinkedIn describes him as serving in the U.S. Air Force from 2009 until 2013, after which he briefly taught at a summer Bible school. Days before the shooting, he posted a picture of an assault weapon on Facebook with the caption: “She’s a bad bitch.”

One witness told a KSAT reporter the he was dressed “in full gear.” During a press conference in Sutherland Springs, state and local officials said that Kelley had an “assault-type” rifle and first fired outside the church before entering the building. An armed citizen pursued Kelley by vehicle after he left the church.

Whatever the final death toll, it is already the deadliest shooting at a place of worship in modern American history, surpassing the nine killed at Emanuel AME Baptist Church in Charleston, South Carolina in 2015.

Why are shops in Germany closed on Sundays?

Many of you are probably familiar with waking up on a Sunday morning to an empty fridge and not being able to buy food because all the grocery stores are closed. But have you ever wondered how Germany's strict shopping hours came to be?

Germany is renowned for having some of the strictest laws for opening hours in Europe, much to the frustration of many modern shoppers.

Not only are the majority of shops closed throughout Germany on Sundays, but during the week they often shut earlier in the evening than in most other countries.

After the first country-wide laws on opening hours were set out in 1900, by 1919 it was illegal for shops to open on Sundays and, on weekdays, shops could only be open from 7am to 7pm.

The reasoning behind this was not only religious, as in certain faiths the Sabbath is considered a day of rest and a day to honour God, but also to take the interests of workers into consideration.

Making it a legal requirement for people to have a day off on Sundays meant people were guaranteed a day to relax at home and to avoid a 7-day work week. Because of this, the concept of a 'Ruhetag' (resting day) is held dear to many Germans.

Quincentennial of the Protestant Reformation

Larissa Tenorio Gessner

October 31, 2017

Do you know the significance of the Protestant Reformation and why it is so widely commemorated?

This year, 2017, we as a church have been commemorating the quincentennial of the Protestant Reformation, the beginning of which many consider as October 31, 1517, with Martin Luther's 95 theses. Many of our churches worldwide have held conferences and special meetings in celebration (including a few listed below). The subject of this quarter's Sabbath School Lesson is Justification by Faith to further study and better understand a driving topic of the Reformation. This year's Week of Prayer theme will also be the anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Do you know the significance of the Protestant Reformation and why it is so widely commemorated? Prior to the Reformation, the Bible was unavailable to all except a very selected few. The conditions in the world were so that, the masses were illiterate, the Bible was only available in languages they did not speak, and the few copies and translations of the Bible were locked away and hidden. Martin Luther himself spent years as a student of theology in ingorance of the Bible's existence.

"Rome withheld the Bible from the people, and required all men to accept her teachings in its place. It was the work of the Reformation to restore to men the Word of God;" (The Great Controversy, p. 388).

Today we commemorate 500 years since God's Word began to be rediscovered. How fitting, then, that our celebration include an earnest study of His word, time and devotion dedicated to His precious gospel, and dedication in working out the prophecies included in His letter to us.

A World With Many Dangers, Toils, And Snares

"Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame."

I Corinthians 15:33-34

"Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

Ephesians 5:14-16

"He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known."

Proverbs 10:9

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

Psalm 14:1-3

In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will assess the distressing conditions of this age, and recent events which continue to show that we live in a world with many dangers, toils, and snares. The troubles facing the people of earth are pervasive. In Europe many areas have become lands of anger and discontent spurred by the arrival of 1.5 million migrants from the Middle East and Africa since 2015. (1) Research from the Pew Research Center which was published in June 2017 shows that 90 percent of the Greeks who were surveyed disapprove of the European Union's handling of the migrant crisis. The disapproval percentages in other European nations were also high, including 80 percent of respondents in Italy, 78 percent in Sweden, and 67 percent in Spain. (2) Another indicator of discontent in Europe was the election of billionaire Andrej Babis as Prime Minister of the Czech Republic in October 2017. The new leader has said that the Czech Republic should not have to accept refugees, a policy which has apparently resonated with the nation's people. (3) Reports from the media have described the new Prime Minister as a "Czech Donald Trump." (4) Meanwhile, there is trouble in Catalonia as the people of this region have sought to declare independence from Spain in recent weeks. On October 1, 2017, the Catalan people held a referendum in which 90 percent of voters favored independence. The government of Spain declared the vote illegal even as Spanish police forces worked to disrupt the voting process, and in so doing, injured 844 people. (5) Even as Spanish officials have promised to discipline the disobedient citizens of Catalonia, secessionists in the region have urged Catalans to engage in "massive civil disobedience." (6)

There is also great turmoil in the South American country of Venezuela. Due to the socialist government policies of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his successor President Nicolas Maduro, a full 82 percent of the people in Venezuela now live in poverty. (7) Even as food shortages and violence take their toll, thousands have fled to other countries in an effort to escape their dire circumstances. "Everything there has turned ugly. There's hunger and crime. You can't leave your house after 5 p.m. because you're going to be robbed or killed," said a woman who left Venezuela for the brighter prospects of Peru. (7)
