From Pastor RogerI’ve been doing some reading in the book, “Last Day Events.” It’s a compilation of EGW Quotes that were put together in 1992. The following quotes seem relevant to the all the issues we are facing:
This very class put forth the claim that the fast-spreading corruption is largely attributable to the desecration of the so-called “Christian sabbath” and that the enforcement of Sunday observance would greatly improve the morals of society. This claim is especially urged in America, where the doctrine of the true Sabbath has been most widely preached.—The Great Controversy, 587 (1911). White, E. G. (1992). Last Day Events (pp. 129–130). Pacific Press Publishing Association.
When Protestant churches shall unite with the secular power to sustain a false religion, for opposing which their ancestors endured the fiercest persecution, then will the papal sabbath be enforced by the combined authority of church and state. There will be a national apostasy, which will end only in national ruin.—Evangelism, 235 (1899).
When the state shall use its power to enforce the decrees and sustain the institutions of the church—then will Protestant America have formed an image to the papacy, and there will be a national apostasy which will end only in national ruin.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:976 (1910).White, E. G. (1992). Last Day Events (p. 134). Pacific Press Publishing Association.
A question I have for you today is this: You are aware of the news about the election. You are aware of the news about the CORONOVIRUS. You are aware of what’s happening in your neighborhood. You may even know what’s happening on Netflix, YouTube or Facebook. Do you know what the Bible and Ellen White have to say about the end times?
Do you think you should? I am beginning to dig in deeper. Want to join me?

A Note from the Welcoming Ministry We are grateful for everyone’s patience as we transition to a new electronic registration platform. It will take us a bit of time to work on our efficiency so please bear with us.
