Recently quite a few fellow Seventh-day Adventists are calling President Ted Wilson a “Jesuit” for saying that there is no Sunday Law “in the pipeline”. This especially got traction from Amazing Word Ministries’ Pr. Nougaisse’s videos here: https://youtu.be/wHTJ77H0xVY
and End-Time Prophecies’ video: https://youtu.be/e8jTMWFhxCA
It sounds incredible, so I decided to check out the actual words that Pr. Wilson said. You can find the video here: https://youtu.be/npS4N6WV_XU
Here is the full video contents of Ted Wilson’s comments regarding the “pipeline” question.
“The question has surfaced from time to time as to whether or not there is some connection between the General Conference and its involvement with Sunday laws and that kind of thing. Also strange rumors that have been floating around in the internet for a number of years actually that the Pope has contacted the United States president who has contacted the General Conference president about national Sunday laws and all of this.”
“I want to tell you that this is absolutely incorrect, totally false. Somebody somewhere imagines certain things and puts it on the internet and then people believe what they read.”
“I want to encourage all of you to go back to the Word of God. Go back to the Spirit of prophecy. Read the beautiful chapters in The Great Controversy. Understand that yes, National Sunday laws will come. Persecution will come. But nothing of that sort is in the pipeline at the present time, nothing that we have understood. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a strong proponent of religious liberty and freedom of conscience. We believe in religious liberty for all people. One of these days though, that Liberty will be taken away from us. But until that time, let’s use the time to spread the good news.
Don’t spread rumors. Don’t spread inaccurate information. Spread the truth. The Holy Spirit will help you to do that. God bless each one of you. And don’t be afraid for the future. Put yourself in God’s hands, and he will protect you even through the most difficult times. Thank you for your witness for the Lord. God bless you. Maranatha.”
While I disagree very strongly with Pr. Wilson on his support for abortion, and don’t even consider him my brother in Christ over his support for killing Christ in the womb, he is exactly right on this issue. I call on all those trying to paint him in a bad light on the Sunday Law issue for this “in the pipeline” issue to repent, and ask for God to heal your itching ears.
