I find G. T. Ng’s statements to be particularly repulsive. And the fact he was propped up to give his demeaning “Emergency 911” lecture (with the amateur-hour PowerPoint slides that were printed in the document) tells us much about Ted Wilson, who we must assume fully supported the message.
I truly hope we can vote these guys out of office in 2020 (if the Lord does not intervene sooner).
The consensus view among conservatives is that the GC San Antonio vote was God’s voice, and that the GC Annual Council vote on Monday was Satan’s voice. Apparently, not all GC decisions reflect God’s voice, which they had insisted on before Monday. The anger about the decision–much of it directed toward the GC and its wimpy (emasculated) leadership–is palpable. Apparently, many no longer support the GC with their tithe.
This was too rich not to share–a quote from David Read, taken from another blog:
“Birder, the New Testament authority for Sabbath-keeping is insignificant next to the New Testament authority for male headship in the church. Who is following Scripture more closely, the Baptists or the Adventists? Since the Baptists have more carefully guarded their high view of Scrpture than we have, I’d say there’s more hope that the Baptists will accept the Sabbath than that we will accept male headship in the church. And it’s going to get worse before it gets better, as more and more Adventists accept the basics of the LGBT movement.”
Some seem to place male headship right up there with the decalogue in doctrinal, if not theological, importance.
