Your paragraph is a warped syncretistic post of what is true & false.
The gospel embraced & applied does correct the ills of society. As it spread, it countered the barbarianism of areas it entered.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. JN 17:17
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto .you, they are spirit, and they are life. JN 6:63
Ye are already clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you. JN 15:3
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. JN 15:18
Jesus’ agenda is counter culture because cultures promote/generate pride & the flesh
Your article is a typical Spectrum misdirected tirade against leadership.
Do GC leaders, starting with Ted Wilson, present the weekly sermons & bible studies?
The problem in SDA land is inept teaching. The content is irrelevant, impractical, ambiguous, superficial & shallow. There is little to no clarification of the clichés & bible verses presented.
This teaching approach leads to lack of comprehension and thus negates practical application. Because of this ,the members of the denomination are strongly confused,fanatic, paranoid, apathetic & cynical.
By the way…as far as I am concerned, even the “Uplift Jesus” phrase as it is presented, is a warp of the original meaning from scripture.
I call churches, religious restaurants. Many SDA churches serve junk food, leftovers and/ or small portions that lead to indigestion, constipation, or even food poisoning.
