God does not approve Homosexuality – SDA president

Filed under: Breaking News |
Visiting Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) General Conference President Dr. Ted Wilson says his Church does not support Homosexuality.
Dr. Wilson says the stance of the SDA Church on Homosexuality is very clear and that the church has taken a biblical stand of not supporting the practice.
ZANIS reports that the SDA General Conference president stressed that God does not approve the life style of Homosexuality and that this should not be allowed to be practised especially in communities that have put the bible in the centre of their activities.
 “The position of the SDA on home sexuality is very clear. We have taken a biblical stand point, the Bible is very clear that, homosexuality is not a life style approved by God.”
However, Dr. Wilson said the Church does recognise that there are individuals facing challenges and problems with certain life styles and called for all Christian s to pray for change among such people.
 “However we went to follow the Jesus Ministry, He loved the sinner but hated the sin. We recognise that we have individual’s facing challenges and problems in this area in terms of certain kinds of life styles. SDA’s should be willing to assist and pray with them. We know God has the power to make people live a full life style of the bible through the power of the holy spirit,” he noted.
He further said Homosexuality is a religious issue which bible believing Christians should carefully review and understand from a biblical point.
Meanwhile Dr. Wilson says the SDA Church does not involve itself in political activities.
Dr. Wilson said in as much as some of the church members were actively involved in politics, the SDA church will remain non-partisan in its approach towards such issues.
He said there should always be a clear separation between the Church and the State.
Dr. Wilson said the Church should not be seen dictating what the State should do neither should Government dictate what the church should do.
Dr. Wilson has since left the country.

  1. @Jewish Sage, you are indeed demon possessed ! You are the type of people that Satan likes to use to deceive people. When people try to follow the teachings in the Bible, others are their to put staumbling blocks in their paths.
    What was nailed to the Cross where the ceremoinial laws not the Ten Commandments whcih shall endure forever. If the Ten Commandments were nailed to the Cross, how come most other Christian denominations keep them ? Whya single out the Adventists and attack them ?? Could it be that a sore ppoint is the commandment to keep the Sabbath holy ?
    You are entitled to your opinions and interpretations of the Holy Bible, but please do it in Chritian love or keep those wild thoughts to yourself.

  2. When l read most of the comments above, l can tell indeed that whats being popularly used is indeed Jesuit theology. All those statements to say SDA is a cult and Ellen G White……are but a diversion created and usually used by Jesuit sympathizers and their secret soldiers to try and cheat the masses from the truth about God’s remnant people. Everyone knows about your deceptive ways and how much you are hiding the truth on what exactly you are trying to achieve. You are but the AntiChrist in Daniels and Revelations but you try to sweep this important fact under the carpet. God has given SDA church a very important message of the three angels message of Revelations 14. One can easily tell your affiliation and why you have chosen that course!! Jesus Christ is coming soon and despite all this confusion, God is in control and He is still calling on His people to stand separate and away from the world and Babylon.

    In the fourteenth chapter of Revelation, there are three angels who give a final warning message to the world just before the return of Jesus. Mankind is to make a choice between worshipping God or the beast. Revelation 6-12, “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountain of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of he holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image [the lost], and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints [the saved]; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

    the investigative judgment, preceding the second advent; the judgment of the lost world and wicked angels by Christ and the saints during the one thousand years following the second advent; and the executive judgment, or punishment of the wicked at the close of this period. The investigative judgment takes place in heaven before Christ comes, in order to ascertain who are worthy to be raised in the first resurrection, at His coming, and who among the living are to be changed in the twinkling of an eye, at the sound of the last trump. It is necessary for this to take place before the second advent, as there will be no time for such a work between the coming of Christ and the raising of the righteous dead. The executive judgment on the wicked occurs after their cases have been examined by the saints during the thousand years (Revelation 20:3,4; 1 Corinthians 6:1-3). The investigative judgment is that which is announced to the world by the first angel’s message.

  4. well brothers and sisters, these are not mere criticisms. The devil is angry that there are some god fearing people who will stand for the truth. Ignore these unfounded accusations about SDA being labelled a cult founded by Ellen White. For sure these are clear signs of the times. When you see these things happen ‘wake up and look up for your salvation is near’. Jesus our lord and saviour is about to come. Do not beafraid of the devil’s plot. I have high respet for the SDA church and god is really blessing its noble work to mankind. Long live Rusangu Univerity!
