Stan Patterson EXPOSES the Roots of Sin / Andrews University Zealot

"I believe that it was a leadership issue that led us into the problem that we now call sin" (Professor Stan Patterson, What is the best model of Christian church leadership?, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkoCGFA5u9Y, minute 0):  "Clifford R. Goldstein (b. in 1955) is an American author and editor. He is a leading figure in the Seventh-day Adventist denomination and espouses" (Clifford Goldstein, Wikipedia) Sunday worship.

While violations of the fouth commandment are serious, idolatry is spreading through the remnant, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Dick Davidson, who really enjoys tennis.  http://www.inverity.org/speakers/richard-davidson/

WHICH IS JUST A SPECIES OF IDOLATRY

"A view of things was presented before me in which the students were playing games of tennis and cricket. Then I was given instruction regarding the character of these amusements. They were presented to me as a species of idolatry, like the idols of the nations." (Ellen White, Counsels to Parents, Teachers, and Students, p 350)

AND YES, DR. DAVIDSON IS A LEADER

"Davidson is a former president of the Adventist Theological Society".  (Richard M. Davidson, Wikipedia)

But how can this be?  He's at the Seminary.  He runs the ATS.  And even attends church.

"No man is proved to be a true Christian because he is found in company with the children of God, even in the house of worship and around the table of the Lord." (Ellen White, The Great Controversy, p 396)

EVEN THE GENERAL CONFERENCE HAS RULED AGAINST DR. DAVIDSON

"Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs" https://www.adventist.org/en/beliefs/ in, for example, the "ministry of Ellen G. White. Her writings speak with prophetic authority". https://www.adventist.org/en/beliefs/church/the-gift-of-prophecy/

If Dick Davidson doesn't believe in the prophetic writings, he's not an Adventist -- says the General Conference.  If he does, he's an idolater -- brazenly living a life of contempt for 1 Corinthians 10:14:  "Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry."

THE STARK REALITY OF INFILTRATION

These men have insinuated themselves into key leadership positions, where they work to oppose the key doctrines of Adventism.

Hardened priests, sealed with the mark of the beast, get together with faithful Adventists, and before you know it: "But if there was one sin above another which called for the destruction of the race by the flood, it was the base crime of amalgamation of man and beast which defaced the image of God, and caused confusion everywhere."  (Ellen White, Spiritual Gifts, vol. 3, p. 64)

Especially at the Seminary.

Where Dr. Patterson has been influenced by Dr. Davidson's contempt for the Spirit of Prophecy.

Sure the Prophet says "Sugar clogs the system. It hinders the working of the living machine." (Ellen White, Testimonies for the Church, vol. 2, p 368)   Dr. Patterson just doesn't care.  (see graphic at left)

ANOTHER POPULAR TACTIC FOR DEALING WITH PROBLEMATIC BIBLE TEXTS
 
"Isn’t the Bible clear? Can’t we just read it and see if homosexuality is right or wrong? Unfortunately, it’s not that easy.  The reason being, there are very few passages in the Bible that specifically address homosexuality, and even the ones that do are somewhat vague".  (Pastor Randy Folkenberg, Homosexuality in the Bible: Consistent or Situational?, Walla Walla University newspaper The Collegian, 16 Oct 2014, p 5)

Either the Bible verses are too vague, or too few, or even written too long ago.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom".  (Proverbs 9:10, Holy Bible)

Our top theologians are working to overcome this fear each and every day.  (see graphic at left)

So they can do whatever they want.
