Here is a link giving detailed background information on this very serious corporate sin of our beloved Seventh-day Adventist church:
The corporate action of awarding the pope with a gold medal was the deciding one which prompted my mother to have her name removed from the Seventh-day Adventist church books in 1977. I do not agree with her decision, but have seriously considered for myself twice in my life if i should remove my name also. However, both times, the inescapable conclusion based on Revelation 3:14-22, and Ezekiel 9, is that this Seventh-day Adventist church is God’s only beloved church.
Jesus is calling his bride to repentance. We will heed the call?
