Fact Sheet on SDA Ecumenical Involvement


Click to go to our Home Page







Sad to say, SDA leaders have not been honest about their ecumenical involvement. In the latter 1980’s, I called Dr. B. B. Beach and asked him about the church’s membership in the World Council of Churches. He flatly denied any such membership. He said we could come near to the leaders of those movements and influence them for the truth. I asked him if he knew ONE person in all his years of involvement with the ecumenical movement who had ever become a Seventh-day Adventist. He could not give me ONE NAME. I then reminded him that the first SDA person who was appointed to represent the SDA church to the World Council of Churches, Dr. Earle Hilgert, left the SDA church and became a Presbyterian.


Shortly after my phone conversation with Dr. Beach, I obtained a publication catalog from the World Council of Churches and from that catalog I ordered a publication entitled Directory to Christian Councils. I ordered twelve of that 244 page publication so as to be able to give some of them out to others. That directory (now out of print) says that SDA’s were FULL MEMBERS of the WCC in five different countries of the world, to wit:


·       Belieze, p. 100

·       Hong Kong, p. 63

·       Cook Islands, p. 189

·       Sweden, p. 158

·       Bahamas, p. 99.


The directory names the church as also participating members on lesser levels in other countries of the world as well as being observers in some countries. So Dr. Beach lied about the church’s ecumenical status. It was a conspiracy of the church, just as the Jews conspired in Jeremiah 11:9-15, to secretly join the church to Babylon’s highest council. The members were never informed of such MEMBERSHIP. To this very day (as of August 24, 2010), the church leaders still deny any MEMBERSHIP in the WCC. The last page of the directory, p. 244, says that the WCC is in “working relationship with the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.” Working relationship is more than observer status, which is what the leaders always try to get us to believe. God’s Word calls them liars and so they are. I spoke cadidly to Mr. Beach and he told me that I had better be careful how I talk to the prophets of God, thus referring to himself as a prophet. It should be considered that a broad definition of the word prophet is one who claims to represent God to the people. Within that boundary, Dr. B. B. Beach was/is a prophet.


Ezekiel 13

1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; 3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. 9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter: 11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it. 12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? 13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. 14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; 16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD. 17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them, 18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? 19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? 20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. 21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: 23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 13.


God’s true people are delivered out of the hands of the omega of apostate new movement, just as Jesus delivered all true Christians out of the Synagogue of Satan by calling them out into home churches all over Judea.


This document lists many of the various sources which prove that the SDA new movement church is very much involved with the ecumenical movement. Ironically, while claiming that the church is not a member of any ecumenical movement, the leaders do admit such out of the other side of their mouth in some instances.

Note this quote from the following article by Dr. Walter Veith. Dr. Veith obviously does not believe in corporate responsibility as he believes that one can sign ecumenical documents in a personal capacity without involving the church.


"The plain straight testimony must live in the church, or the curse of God will rest upon His people as surely as it did upon ancient Israel because of their sins. God holds His people, as a body [corporately], responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them." Testimonies, vol. 3, p. 269.




"Reinder Bruinsma was executive secretary of the Trans-European Division from 1995—2001 and succeeded Henk Koning as Union President of the Netherlands Union. Henk Koning was president of the Netherlands Union Conference when he signed the Charta Oecumenica on the 18th of January 2002. Such signing can not be done in a personal capacity, as churches and not individuals are party to the ecumenical movement. Whether Bruinsma was party to the signing or not is not known by me, but by his silence he condoned it and he certainly did not rescind it on becoming Union president himself. Reinder Bruinsma has made his views on relations with the Roman Catholic Church and the traditional view of the Adventist Church, inclusive of the Spirit of Prophecy, very clear even in his doctoral thesis A Historical Analysis of Seventh-day Adventist Attitudes toward Roman Catholicism (University of London, 1993), which was also published by Andrews University Press in 1995 as Adventist Attitudes toward Roman Catholicism 1844—1865."


How Satan is drawing the churches together by getting them to dialogue with one another just as he dialogued with Eve.

New SDA Approach to Organized Labor (Unions) http://www.spectrummagazine.org/node/597


See this quote at the following link which involved Hungarians revolting because of the church's MEMBERSHIP in the Hungarian Council of Free Churches which is a MEMBER of the World Council of Churches.




" "Late in June 1986, Elder Neal C. Wilson, president of the General Conference, again went to Budapest Hungary....Meetings were held...with the Hungarian Union leadership and with the Hungarian Government....

     “The Monday following Elder Wilson's departure from Budapest, Oszkar Egervari (leader of the 1400 disfellowshipped SDA’s) was asked to come to the State Office of Religion...and told four things:

     “1 – They must stop all gatherings.  No more religious meetings could be held.  2 – They must no longer receive offerings and carry on their religious duties.  3 – No more campmeetings or youth camps could be held.  4 – Certain people would be held responsible if these points were not followed....

     “It is clear that the Hungarian Union leadership is determined to stop all separate gatherings by Seventh-day Adventists who remain loyal to the teachings of historic Adventism.  They will even use the arm of the State and threatened imprisonment to carry out their objective....Over one thousand Seventh-day Adventists can no longer worship God together as a result of Elder Wilson's visit to Budapest." (Independent Report of Neal C. Wilson’s trip to Budapest Hungary, Pilgrims' Rest Tract, WM-140, July, 1986)."


The Hungarian revolt by faithful SDA's protesting the church's MEMBERSHIP in the Hungarian Council of Free Churches, the National Council in Hungary that is a MEMBER of the World Council of Churches. 



The SDA Church has sent its ministers to learn Neuro-Linguistic Programming, an Eriksonian method of hypnosis that hypnotizes the subject without him/her knowing it. This is how they manage some of the lesser minds in the church.


In addition, the church sends hundreds of pastors to the Babylonian Preachers Rick Warren and Bill Hybels to learn how to grow mega churches. Those pastors dumb-down doctrinal teaching and stress entertainment to draw their members. They use celebration methodologies designed more to entertain than enlighten.


Please try to always remember these two facts:


·       I asked Dr. B.B. Beach over the phone if He could cite ONE PERSON who had been converted to the SDA church as a result of the church's ecumenical liaison with Babylon. He could not name ONE PERSON! What does that tell you? That God is not going to bless what He has cursed as unpardonable sin that gets one "BROKEN IN PIECES," stated three times because of the seriousness of it--Isaiah 8:9-12.

·       I wish all could hear the testimony of an SDA Reformer minister, David Bauer. He told the story of an Admiral in the U.S. Navy who was taking Bible studies from and SDA minister every Wednesday evening. That went on for about eight months and the Admiral was about to take a stand and become a Seventh-day Adventist. But on a Tuesday evening before the last Bible study, he was watching a documentary on T.V. about the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. At the end of the program, as the credits rolled giving the names of MEMBERS of the NCC in the U.S.A., he noticed the name The Seventh-day Adventist Church. Next evening when the SDA pastor arrived for the scheduled Bible study, the Admiral met him at the door and told him never to darken his doorway again! The pastor inquired why, and the Admiral told him that he had been calling him out of Babylon for nearly eight months and he saw the evening before that the SDA church was in liaison with Babylon. The Admiral was a lot smarter than a lot of dumb-dog SDA pastors who cannot seem to understand that being in liaison with Babylon is a violation of the second angels message and the Midnight Cry that gave power to that message.


I'll give you a good idea of what happens--to prove that uniting with the corrupt results in copy-catting the corrupt.


"It is IMPOSSIBLE for you to unite with those who are corrupt, and still remain pure. (II Corinthians 6:14-15 quoted). God and Christ and the heavenly host would have men know that if he unites with the corrupt he will become corrupt." E. G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 4, p. 137.

·       The church dialogued with Martin and Barnhouse in an effort to convince them SDA's were not a cult.

·       Martin and Barnhouse challenged the leaders to join in with Babylon is they were not a cult.

·       The church began to join ecumenical associations. Then it confederated with them. It began to pay annual dues to Babylon's associations, counsels/councils and confederacies.

·       The church formed a new movement that began to compromise and change pillar doctrines such as the proper teaching on the human nature of Christ.

·       The church adopted Babylon's teaching on the Godhead--the trinity doctrine, which sweeps away the Sanctuary/Atonement and thus the entire Christian economy.

·       SDA church members began to eat out on the Sabbath. At the last campmeeting I attended, a theology major at CUC (Canadian Union College--now Canadian Union College University) led out in a football game right outside the main auditorium on Sabbath afternoon. There was rock like music coming from the youth tent. And East Indian children were putting on a Hindu customs demonstration.

·       In my youth, SDA's had nothing to do with Easter. In the latter 1980's, SDA's participated in a joint Easter celebration. George Vandeman joind up with Pat Boone to lead out in it. Ellen White said that baptism celebrates the resurrection of Christ.

·       Dr. B. B. Beach co-authored a book with the leader of the WCC at that time, Lukas Vischer, entitled: So Much in Common. Why did God require us to separate from Babylon if we have so much in common with them?

·       The church joined the celebration movement that was spear-headed by Vatican II. Every uncouth thing has been brought into SDA churches and campmeetings via this craze to be like Babylon.

·       The church started wearing rings and permitting jewelry amongst its members.

·       Attending movies became quite commonplace.

·       Coffee drinking became quite common as well.

·       The church sent its pastors to Neuro-linguistic programming classes wherein one learns the Eriksonian method of hypnozing without the subject even knowing it.

·       Some SDA ministers began to say that they would never teache the three angel's messages again because they are too unpopular.

·       The church sent its pastors to Babylonians like Bill Hybels and Rick warren to learn how to grow churches by watering down doctrine and entertaining people.

·       According to God in Isaiah 8:9-12, and Ellen White in Word to the Little Flock, p. 14, it is unpardonable sin to rejoin Babylon in any way after hearing and understanding the three angel's messages and the Midnight Cry.


"A new order of things has COME INTO the ministry. There is a desire to pattern after other churches and simplicity and humility are almost unknown. The young ministers seek to be original, and to introduce new ideas and new plans for labor. Some open revival meetings, and by this means call large numbers into the church. But when the excitement is over, where are the converted ones? Repentance and confession of sin are not seen. The sinner is entreated to believe in Christ and accept Him, without regard to his past life of sin and rebellion. The heart is not broken. There is no contrition of soul. The supposed converted ones have not fallen upon the Rock, Christ Jesus." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Bk. 2, pp. 18, 19.


Thus, the new order, the new movement, began in Ellen White's day, but not to the point that it was necessary to separate from it or be defiled.


The trials of the children of Israel, and their attitude just before the first coming of Christ, have been presented before me, again and again, to ILLUSTRATE the position of the people of God in their experience before the second coming of Christ—how the enemy sought every occasion to take control of the minds of the Jews, and today her is seeking to blind the minds of God’s servants, that they may not be able to discern the Precious Truth.” (1 SM, 406; 2 Cor 4:4). The “precious truth” mentioned here is the light sent to the Seventh-day Adventists in 1888.


"I have been shown that the spirit of the world is fast leavening the church. You are following the same path as did ancient Israel. There is the same falling away from your holy calling as God's peculiar people. You are having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Your concord with unbelievers have provoked he Lord's displeasure. You know not the things that belong to your peace, and they are fast being hid from your eyes. [The very words applied to fallen Israel on page 17 of The Great Controversy] Your neglect to follow the light will place you in a more unfavorable position than the Jews upon whom Christ pronounced a woe." Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 75-76.


So if anyone thinks that he/she and the church can unite with the corrupt and remain pure and untarnished, THINK AGAIN FRIEND, THINK AGAIN. But God says that the dumb-dog "watchmen" like you talked with Brian, cannot understand, Isaiah 58:10-12.


The above list is just some of the abominations we can witness with our finite eyes. But the Holy Spirit gift to the church told us we don't know the worst ones which have been committed in secret.


     “The abominations for which the faithful ones were sighing and crying were all that could be discerned by finite eyes, but by far the worst sins, those which provoked the jealousy of the pure and holy God, were unrevealed. The great Searcher of hearts knoweth every sin committed in secret by the workers of iniquity. These persons come to feel secure in their deceptions and, because of His long-suffering, say that the Lord seeth not, and then act as though He had forsaken the earth. But He will detect their hypocrisy and will open before others those sins which they were so careful to hide.” {5T 211.3}


This document http://omega77.tripod.com/NeilChap15.htm by Neil Livingston tells how Dr. Earle Hilgert, a Professor of Theology at Andrews University, was the first represented from the SDA church to the World Council. Dr. Hilgert then left the SDA church to become a Presbyterian. So when Dr. Beach could not name one person who has been converted to the SDA church via its ecumenical liaisons with Babylon. I told him about Dr. Hilgert, and the phone went silent! When we go on Satan's territory willfully, WHO GETS WHO?


"After the consultations between the SDA and WCC "become somewhat more formal," the leading man chosen as the representative for the Seventh-day Adventist Church was Dr. Earle Hilgert, Professor of Theology at Andrews University. Since Dr. Hilgert left the SDA Church to become a Presbyterian, and took a position at a Presbyterian College in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Raoul Dederen, Professor of Theology at Andrews University was chosen to succeed Dr. Hilgert as the SDA representative."
