October 1, 2011


For decades some of us have had proof that the SDA church is a MEMBER of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. The church denied this fact. Now, with the National Council’s latest update, the Seventh-day Adventist church is listed as a MEMBER. All bets are off as to how long the SDA church will be listed as a MEMBER, because as in the past, the church will probably have them remove its listing as being a MEMBER. Such MEMBERSHIP in Babylon’s associations, councils/counsels, girdings and/or confederacies is strictly forbidden by the Word of God in Isaiah 8:9-12. The only option given is being “broken in pieces,” mentioned three times. This connotes unpardonable sin. And every MEMBER of the church is corporately responsible for this sin if he/she knows about it:


Corporate responsibility


"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.


"Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church..." E. G. White,  Christ's Object Lessons, 71.


"The names of those who sin and refuse to repent should not be retained on the church books, lest the saints be held accountable for their evil deeds. Those who pursue a course of transgression should be visited and labored with, and if they then refuse to repent, they should be separated from church fellowship, in accordance with the rules laid down in the Word of God." {11MR 208.3}


And what if the leaders are the ringleaders in apostasy sins? The only way to avoid corporate responsibility for know open sins is to follow the course of every true reformers of every succeeding generation—Desire of Ages, 232, SEPARATE.


"Even though you may not be able to speak a word to those who are working on wrong principles, leave them. Your withdrawal and silence may do more than words. Nehemiah refused to associate with those who were untrue to principle, and he would not permit his workmen to associate with them. The love and fear of God were his safeguard-Dare to be a Daniel, Dare to stand alone. Thus as did Moses, you will endure the seeing of Him who is invisible. But a cowardly and silent reserve before evil associates, while you listen to their devices makes you one with them Come out from among them and be separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." Review & Herald Vol. 4, p. 42.


“The children were not condemned for the sins of the parents; but when, with a knowledge of all the light given to their parents, the children rejected the additional light granted to themselves, they became partakers of the parents' sins, and filled up the measure of their iniquity.” The Great Controversy, p. 28.


Since the early 1960’s, true reformers have pled with SDA leaders and protested against  the ecumenical involvement of the new movement, omega of apostasy SDA church described in Selected Messages, Bk. 1, 204-205.
