We have been taught that the reason for the delay
in Christ’s coming is that
"He not willing that any should perish".
Since EGW penned the Great Controversy
there are BILLIONS more people on the planet
–billions MORE to “perish” than if Christ
had come 150 or 1500 years ago.
Christ through John the Revelator,
circa AD 90, said He would come SOON.
Is this not untruthful,
if we believe the 1844 sanctuary prophecy.
Surely one time frame contradicts the other?
The demographics show that one million
new births occur EVERY WEEK.
(In the last 19 weeks, as many as the
nineteen million Adventists Ted boasts about,
baptized over many decades).
Many of today’s newborns enter non-Christian
families, in conditions of utter squalor,
—shanty towns in Africa. and sordid slums
in Rio and Calcutta.
Many will die of dysentery or starvation
before reaching the age of five,
and most will "perish"eternally,
being born to “heathen” mothers!
The “misery index” on our planet rises exponentially
—a miasma of misery mantles our globe.
– drowning, starving desperate migrants,
on several oceans, millions of war refugees ,
Ebola epidemics, earthquakes
in the world’s poorest locales–Haiti and Nepal,
ISIS atrocities ad nauseum.
It is difficult to STOMACH the evening news.
I cringe with each new calamity!
And we are still to expect in the future,
“a time of trouble such as never was?”
How do God’s nostrils tolerate the STENCH
of so much agony and anguish??
The demographics show, with each passing
decade of delay in the return of Christ.
countless MORE eternally “perish” and
millions more are mired in abject misery.
And we Adventists are to blame because
"we are not prepared"?
What a guilt trip EGW and Ted Wilson
lay on our shoulders!
Are Adventist responsible for the Holocaust,
'Stalin’s Gulag, the Armenian, Pol Pot,
Ruandan, Bosnian genocides, because of our
woeful lack of preparation?
Do we really want to belong to a church
that is “responsible” for such a multitude of calamities?
The price tag for the delay in Christ’s coming
exacted in mankind’s MISERY,
is getting imcreasingly prohibitively EXPENSIVE.
Ted’s explanation for the delay in Christ’s return,
is to say the least DISMAYING.
The longer the time lapse between Christ’s return
and William Miller’s “mistake”, the more
the denomination will embarrassingly
"have egg on its face".
