Why are our some of our SDA G.C.(General Conference Churches) not allowing the Old SDA HIGH Standards of the "Three Angels Messages" to be proclaimed & are trying to introduce the Purpose Driven CHURCH Theology into Adventism?
Since His ascension Christ has carried forward His work on the earth by chosen Ambassadors, through whom He speaks to the children of men and ministers to their needs. The great Head of the Church Superintends His work through the instrumentality of men ordained by God to act as His Representatives.
The position of those who have been called of God to labor in word and doctrine for the up building of His church is one of grave responsibility. In Christ's stead they are to beseech men and women to be reconciled to God, and they can fulfill their mission only as they receive wisdom and power from above.
Christ's ministers are the spiritual guardians of the people entrusted to their care. Their work has been likened to that of watchmen. In ancient times sentinels were often stationed on the walls of cities, where, from points of vantage, they could overlook important posts to be guarded, and give warning of the approach of an enemy.
