    James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of our Fathers, 88th ed., pp. 89. "But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify." Stephen Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism 3rd ed., p. 174. "Question:  Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept? "Answer:  Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her-she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the...
  • Home> U.S. Suit: Church Knowingly Let Abuser in Youth Program

    Two 50-year-old men filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the Seventh-Day Adventist Church put a man known to abuse children in charge of its youth program in the 1970s and kept him in that position even after learning he was accused of abusing a child in its ranks. The men filed the suit in Oregon, seeking $15 million from the Maryland-based church and its Northwest and Oregon branches. The men say they were abused in the 1970s but only discovered two years ago that the church knew it had a convicted child molester in the program and did nothing.

    Pasadena city officials placed Public Health Director Eric Walsh on temporary paid administrative leave Thursday after they learned of controversial statements he had made about homosexuality and evolution in online videos and audio clips. In sermons uploaded to various websites, Walsh, a Seventh-day Adventist preacher, calls evolution "a religion created by Satan," compares Disney to a "dark empire" of superstition and witchcraft, and criticizes homosexuality.

    DALLAS (AP) - Chocolates are always nice, and a diamond necklace would be delightful. But a Dallas-based ministry thinks it has a better idea for Valentine's Day. "Her gift for Valentines? Stop looking at porn," proclaim billboards put up by NetAccountability, a nonprofit software company that aims to help Christians confront the "secret sin" of pornography. If national surveys are any indication, it is a personal battle waged by millions of Christians. Almost 18 percent of people who called themselves born-again Christians admitted visiting Internet porn sites, according to a 2000 survey of 1,031 adults by the evangelical group Focus...
  • Senate chaplain: ‘Cover our shame’ (He’s not being paid during the shutdown)

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The federal shutdown has found its angry prophet. Senate Chaplain Barry Black is usually a calm, pastoral presence on Capitol Hill, doling out spiritual wisdom and moral counsel to his high-powered flock. But the Seventh-Day Adventist and former Navy rear admiral is mad as hell about the shutdown — and he’s letting the Senate, and the Lord, know about it. “Lord, when the federal shutdown delays payments of death benefits to the families of (soldiers) dying on far-away battlefields, it’s time for our lawmakers to say enough is enough,” Black said in his prayer opening the Senate on Wednesday. “Cover...

    Why did Angus T. Jones turn to God? Yahoo! TV By Sarah D. Bunting | Yahoo! TV – 9 hours ago Following a recent high-profile rant by "Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones that called the show "filth" and told viewers not to watch it, it's unclear what's next for the 19-year-old -- or for the show itself. Jones, who plays Jake Harper on the sitcom, also said he "doesn't want to be on" it anymore. But it seems neither the young actor nor his reps has contacted anyone on the production about quitting the show formally,...

    The filmmakers want to crack open your heart. So that even if you've heard -- or you think you've heard -- everything you need to hear about being Christian and being gay, about feeling unwelcome in a church pew, you will be willing to open your heart. To listen again. "We're deep believers in the power of hearing someone's story," Daneen Akers says. Daneen is a new mom and a former English teacher. Now she makes documentaries with her husband, Stephen Eyer. The California couple made a movie about fibromyalgia a few years ago. Now they're traveling the country for...

    Texas Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and Richardson Church versus Eugene Shubert Do Seventh-day Adventist pastors ever abuse their authority and silence individual church members they don’t like? Do they ever disfellowship believers without even granting them a semblance of a church trial? (Matthew 18:15-17; 1 Corinthians 6:1-4). Would an Adventist Christian ever join a conspiracy to silence a true believer with threats of arrest for criminal trespassing just for showing up at church? I believe that most of the pastors of the Seventh-day Adventist church favor using threats and intimidation and a direct appeal to the state for immediate prosecution,...

    The Conscientious Objector Released by D'Artagnan Entertainment Before the Vietnam era, Hollywood movies celebrated the heroism of America's fighting men. Films like the Howard Hawks's classic Sergeant York (1941) told Americans the compelling stories of real-life soldiers against the backdrop of their nation's destiny. (Alvin C. York was a hero of World War I.) William Wyler's The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) depicted the lives of several American G.I.s after they returned home. One of the characters in the film, Homer Parrish, a young man who lost his hands during the war and finds it difficult to adjust to...

    Safarig, a Global Mission Center designed for training pioneers, in the Darfur region of Sudan, was recently attacked and leveled to the ground by Janjweed militias. Homes were burned, and an Adventist Church was destroyed. "Everybody fled for his life," says Daniel Marach, a church leader in the region who moved with 46 church members and many others to an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Abujabra. The journey was especially difficult for women, children and the elderly, according to Marach. "Thank God we have arrived safely to our new home. No one was hurt," he says. William Oliver, a...

[ANN Staff/ANR] The bombing of Baghdad did not deter members of the local Seventh-day Adventist Church from attending weekly worship services on Saturday, the Sabbath, or from praying for peace. "We can report, confirmed by a phone call to Baghdad, that our church members remain safe and met on Sabbath at our church as usual," said Michael Porter, president of the Adventist Church in the region, from his Nicosia headquarters. "The members are of good courage and expressed special thanks to the world church for...
