Marginalization of Faithful Ministries

August 30, 2015 highwayadmin

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE FLORIDA CONFERENCE:“The Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists recommended a change in programming to one of our local churches. Doug Batchelor, Speaker for Amazing Facts, had been scheduled for a one-week meeting this fall at Spring Meadows church. However, the Florida Conference Administration views Pastor Batchelor as a polarizing influence in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This concern revolves around the subject of women’s involvement in ministry, both as local elders and pastors, and that the position that he has taught openly for several years is not in harmony with the position and policy of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Florida Conference continues to support the 25- to 30-year-old position of the General Conference of encouraging women to use the gifts God has given them for ministry, both as local elders and in pastoral leadership and ministry. Therefore, we discouraged Spring Meadows church from following through with the invitation to Pastor Batchelor.”Mike Cauley

Dear faithful believer, If this is disturbing to you, please write your letters in  support of the preaching of historic Bible truths. Do it firmly, but with kindness and respect.The Florida Conference should be deluged with letters and calls of concern.(ST, June 5, 1901) “When called before the high priest, and commanded not to speak at all, nor to preach in the name of Jesus, they answered: “Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we can not but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”
