  5. Where was the church ...

    When the church criticizes one group and not the other it is taking sides in a political struggle. They don't criticize people to do this: http://www.wweek.com/news/city/2017/06/23/portland-police-chief-says-antifa-protesters-used-slingshot-to-launch-urine-and-feces-filled-balloons-at-riot-cops/ . Why? There are many reports of these same groups doing this at Charlottesville too. It is something they do again and again. It is well-known behavior for antifa. In my opinion this was all a set up. It is an excuse to clamp down on free speech. And the media and political left are using this incident exactly that way. That the church should weigh in on the side of those who want to destroy liberty is, well, shall we say, unfortunate at the very least. Truth has been rejected for so long that the last Ellen White quote on the antedeluvians is an exact fit for our day. People are enamored with a tissue of falsehoods. Truth lies in the gutter being ignored or spat upon. It's like Jesus said, ...when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth? This, once again, is a very accurate description of the days in which we live. In many ways it describes some factions within the SDA church to a tee.

  7. Islamic extremists have carried out over a dozen deadly terror attacks in Western Europe since 2015, killing more than 330 civilians. Six of the attacks used vehicles as weapons, including Thursday’s assault in Barcelona, Spain. The Barcelona attack is the first such incident in Western Europe since early June, when a van careened onto the sidewalk along London Bridge, mowing down pedestrians. The London attack came just 12 days after a bombing at the Manchester Arena, and about two months after a similar pedestrian rampage in the heart of London. Most of the terrorist attacks in Western Europe in the past few years have had some link to the Islamic State. The terror group claimed responsibility for the Barcelona attack in a statement issued by its news agency. Two of the deadliest incidents, the attacks in Paris in November 2015 and in Brussels in March 2016, were directed by the Islamic State, and carried out by operatives who trained with the group in Iraq and Syria. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/05/23/world/europe/europe-terror-attacks.html

  10. Kingdom of AdventiStan

    I really don't know how it came about but I was duped into truly believing Club Adventist was a mission outreach from one of Canada's sda conferences. That meant in my eyes money was conference support given to this Forum. However things took a tumble in my brain waves as I saw the new registered title: Kingdom of AdventiStan After some deliberation I came to the conclusion that the CAD conference would allow him to remain manager of the Forum but surely not 'king' of the Forum. Then I accepted the possibility that Stan actually does own exclusively the Forum himself and foots all the bills of costs himself. This insight came at the beginning of this year to me. So apparently all the fiddling around he does on the technical side of this place is under his own initiative. It's his 'baby' and his rule in making decisions. Of course many are the suggestions for improvement of this and that coming from the members. He does his best to get all the suggestions put into the flow of Forum workings. Sometimes what is suggested for him to change something doesn't get changed for some background unfeasible reason. All in all he still remains democratic. Far from the path taken by President Trump who seems to be going for being a 'king' in his forthcoming dictatorship. That's just a ruse for hiding his megalomaniac urge for being a 'king' in his own Kingdom. If he didn't capitalize the 'S' in AdventiStan he would be more accepted in the title choice. Otherwise it draws the reader to give glory to 'Stan' as human leader of all us minions running around here at the Forum.
  11. Where was the church ...

    I reviewed back thru the archives of the site that posted the article linked to in the original post and found nothing going back over the last year and a half that balanced the post they made the other day and which was linked to. For the church to jump into the fray against one side of a battle which pits extremists on both sides of the political spectrum was disappointing. What has happened to America and even to Western Civilization of the last few decades is a fight that has become very ugly. Just how ugly the extremists have gotten is illustrated in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwSYhTWk6E8 I do not believe the church should get involved in these really ugly fights on the political scene. Things were really ugly politically in the days Jesus was on this earth, and social justice was not part of His ministry. He always was above fighting. I also do not believe that the NAD did the readers a service and possibly harmed people by bringing them into this fight. It doesn't matter whether you support "Black Lives Matter" or "White Lives Matter," it is another movement leading many to eternal loss. My own viewpoint of many of these social justice causes bring me back to a statement Ellen White wrote many years ago: On the “March to Death”—Satan is busily at work in our crowded cities. His work is to be seen in the confusion, the strife and discord between labor and capital, and the hypocrisy that has come into the churches. That men may not take time to meditate, Satan leads them into a round of gayety and pleasure-seeking, of eating and drinking. He fills them with ambition to make an exhibition that will exalt self. Step by step, the world is reaching the conditions that existed in the days of Noah. Every conceivable crime is committed. The lust of the flesh, the pride of the eyes, the display of selfishness, the misuse of power, the cruelty, and the force used to cause men to unite with confederacies and unions—binding themselves up in bundles for the burning of the great fires of the last days—all these are the working of Satanic agencies. This round of crime and folly men call “life.”... – {Ev 26.1} While the ideologies have somewhat changed over the century since she was with us, the end result has not. There are many getting caught up in these movements that are "binding themselves up in bundles for the burning of the great fires of the last days." Here is another graphic illustration of the "bundles for the burning": I saw the rapidity with which this delusion was spreading. A train of cars was shown me, going with the speed of lightning. The angel bade me look carefully. I fixed my eyes upon the train. It seemed that the whole world was on board, that there could not be one left. Said the angel, “They are binding in bundles ready to burn.” Then he showed me the conductor, who appeared like a stately, fair person, whom all the passengers looked up to and reverenced. I was perplexed and asked my attending angel who it was. He said, “It is Satan. He is the conductor in the form of an angel of light. He has taken the world captive. They are given over to strong delusions, to believe a lie, that they may be damned.
  12. Lesson 8 - From Slaves to Heirs

    I like the view of a life of sin being a life of slavery and a life in Christ being a life of liberty. That is so true. The longer I live the more true I see it is.
