Why has there been a surge of anti-Trinitarianism and Arianism in the Seventh-day Adventist Church during Ted Wilson’s presidency? Certainly you are aware that the Seminary has gone on record and expressed alarm about the recent rise of anti-Trinitarianism and Arianism in the Church. Are you saying that the Seminary is living in a fantasy world? Are you saying that the Seminary is telling lies to the Church? What happened to the theologically conservative Daniel Mesa? What happened to the theologically conservative Ingo Sorke? And these gentlemen have been honest and candid about what they believe, in contrast to so many conservative Seventh-day Adventist leaders who remain coy and silent about what they believe with respect to the Trinity.
You are no doubt unaware that there are notable evangelical and Reformed complementarians (male headship theorists) who have recanted, repented, and are now adamantly opposed to Eternal Functional Subordinationism. They not only accuse people like you of Arianism and Subordinationism but also of idolatry, blasphemy, and of departing from biblical Christianity. And yet, just a few years ago, they believed just like you do, that the immanent Trinity is hierarchically ordered and that the Son is eternally subordinate to the Father.
I wish I was not forced to tar all Seventh-day Adventist opponents of women’s ordination with the accusation of anti-Trinitarianism and Arianism. But in contrast to various notable evangelical and Reformed Christians who have recanted and publicly and unequivocally denounced Eternal Functional Subordinationism, not one Seventh-day Adventist opponent of women’s ordination has ever done so. Seventh-day Adventist opposition to women’s ordination has been monolithically Arian for over thirty years. And the truth of what I speak is spreading throughout the Church like a wildfire.
