The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips.

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:23-24

I’m sort of curious. Why was this piece posted at this time? A particular motive?

Jesus was asked–"What is Truth? And Truth was standing right before him and he knew it. Even in the first century, Paul and John had o fight falsehood–on one hand the Jews and the other the gnostics. Truth has always been on the scaffold. Now the issue is headship and final generation theology. The male ego is a frightful barrier to Truth in high places. TZ


Wrong focus. Lucifer’s scheming would have failed if responsible citizens of heaven had blown the whistle on him!

Perhaps “self-exhaltation” as was evidenced in the cited disingenuous off-putting.

Lord, have mercy.

As long as “the work of God” is conflated with the interests of the institutional SDA church, such sentiments will continue, world without end (pun intended), to shame, silence and control people who are concerned with the welfare of actual people, rather than some idealized, undefinable “work of God.”

As such, I think the phrase constitutes what Robert Lifton named a “thought-terminating cliché.” and "becomes the start and finish of any ideological analysis."

Who would dare come out against furthering the work of God?

Who would dare come out in favor of gossip, or…Lucifer?

Is Spectrum trying to tell us that it isn’t telling us certain things that wouldn’t “further the work of God on this earth?” I’m not saying it is, but it strikes me as an unusual article, given the timing, as Allen pointed out.

And someone in the Lounge recently said there is a big issue that isn’t being reported by Spectrum or aToday.

The title, Communicating in Truth, has that odd flavor, to me, also.

Truth. Another Adventist code word. Link


Yes, someone did. Inquiring minds want to know. :relaxed:
