Praise God our church doesn't practice such an idea. :)
This is the nearest thought I can find tony...

"We are not to make the use of flesh food a test of fellowship, but we should consider the influence that professed believers who use flesh foods have over others. As God's messengers, shall we not say to the people: "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God"? 1 Corinthians 10:31. Shall we not bear a decided testimony against the indulgence of perverted appetite?

Will any who are ministers of the gospel, proclaiming the most solemn truth ever given to mortals, set an example in returning to the fleshpots of Egypt? Will those who are supported by the tithe from God's storehouse permit themselves by self-indulgence to poison the life-giving current flowing through their veins? Will they disregard the light and warnings that God has given them? The health of the body is to be regarded as essential for growth in grace and the acquirement of an even temper. If the stomach is not properly cared for, the formation of an upright, moral character will be hindered. The brain and nerves are in sympathy with the stomach. Erroneous eating and drinking result in erroneous thinking and acting." (9T 159)
I have yet to meet a pastor who displays a godly example . :)

Most of the pastors I know of are sinners in one area or another.
It's instructive to observe the kinds of perfections and in what areas .... that we prioritize to require of a pastor. As I recall .... we are not to be judged by what we eat or drink.
I think that I come from Mars,cos I found a lot of serious pastors! If I could to count ,around 40 or more, are telling the true to the church and still preaching by example!perfections?I am not sure!"you can know the tree by their fruits!"

John Parker said,"EGW says somewhere that SDAs who continue to eat meat will be laid to rest before the coming of Jesus. To me, that is saying that only those who "purify themselves" in all things will be among the 144,000. That does not necessarily mean they are lost, but just not among that special group."

I do not find this in the EGW writings. Perhaps you surmised this from C.O.D. p. 380-381
" Among those who are waiting for the coming of the Lord,meat eating will eventually be done away; flesh will cease to form a part of their diet. We should ever keep this end in view, and endeavor to work steadily toward it.. I cannot think that in the practice of flesh eating we are in harmony with the light which God has been pleased to give us." In the light of this quotation, IMO, Seventh-day Adventists just do not have a single compelling reason to continue meat-eating. I do agree with your conclusion, however, that the diseases of the flesh food diet will have put into the grave those who continue its practice. Shouldn't we be striving for the 'best' God has to offer instad of sticking to some practices which He 'allows' but are nothing more than 'second best'? 'nuff sed
thanks Stewart!I just received now from bro Don:
"Will those who are supported by the tithe from God's storehouse permit themselves by self-indulgence to poison the life-giving current flowing through their veins? Will they disregard the light and warnings that God has given them? The health of the body is to be regarded as essential for growth in grace and the acquirement of an even temper.

I never was worried about this issue before and to be honest ,I wasnt caring,but from now,is better for all of us,to start think better about our future spiritual life,and we standing in needs of someone with knowledge to help us in this way!

What kind of question is that? Whose salary do you want to take away?

Why don't we just kick all of the meat-eaters out of church?
Yes Travis. From my pesonal experience .... I've found meat eaters to be much kinder people than vegetarians. But then I could be wrong :)
I've found vegetarians to be much kinder to animals, though. :D
