Questions about what the Seventh-day Adventist Church believed — and believes — about the human nature of Jesus Christ when the Son of God walked the earth were discussed in cordial, but convicted, tones during a three-day seminar marking the 50th anniversary of a book which purported to mark out an “Adventist position” on the matter.
That book, “Seventh-day Adventists Answer Questions on Doctrine,” made its appearance in the fall of 1957. Its publication was hailed by some critics of Adventism —a movement which had passed the one-million adherent mark just two years earlier — as a document which helped lift the stigma of being labeled a “cult” by evangelical Protestant Christians.
Props to Lisa for getting quoted. As you'll see, the article ends with David Larson's zinger, which probably should inform all theological controversies.
