I suggest that the chair, the esteemed self proclaimed first "President of the Seventh day Adventist church" (all of his predecessors titled themselves the "Presient of the General Conference of the SDA) , is himself out of compliance. Someone should counsel him that it is written that by the same measure with which you judge, you shall be ajudged. At the very least it is incumbent upon the body to take his vote and voice, if not his title.
Blinded as he seems to be in his powerlust, I believe he is qualified to be nominated to chair of the "Oversight" committee, pun intended.
Does God permit proxy votes at the final judgment?
