Seventh-Day Adventists/Racism in the SDA church


Not sure! wrote at 2013-03-28 18:58:46
I am someone looking for truth! And all together a great church, and if all I have to look forward to is get over it racism is everywhere! Then I believe religion especially this one is not for my family! Thank you for your honesty!

I am beginning the orientation to become a member of Seventh Day Adventist at Beth Tehilla Vetikva in Cooper City, Florida; however, to my amazement I was told today that the other Seventh Day Adventist churches will not welcome me to their conferences and other churches. In fact, I would be publicly directed to a nearby church of color?

Are you kidding me? Is this not 2015?

Is not there one God of us all?

How long has this distasteful practice been in existence? Will others deny the truth of this horrendous, bigoted practice going on today?

Did Ellen White condone this practice?

Love the Lord. Love thy neighbor. Hypocrisy!! Falsehoods!!

SAD, you should be ashamed. I will make it a priority to make this outrageous travesty of justice known throughout the land.

God loveth righteousness; He hateth wickedness.

You are no better than the perpetrators of injustice and inequality seen on our television screen today.

Shame on all who wait for a champion to change what God hateth.

You are to protect the innocent. God is no respecter of persons.

Do justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly with the Lord.

Moses was married to a woman of color. Father Abraham married a black woman.

What's wrong with being born black?

I'm interested in questions regarding the law in the NT. I also like questions about justification, sanctification, the seal of God, and the nature of Christ. I spent many years as a Sabbath keeper and tithe payer. I can also opine on EGW from the perspective of a well read student of her writings.


Former SDA member for ~30 years; graduate of an SDA college. Former community chaplain at "New Folsom" state prison. Spent several years serving the gay community during the AIDS crisis [not gay myself]. Since I have resided in Asia for the past several years, I'm not up on current events in Western SDA lands.


30 years of Bible study, most of it from an SDA perspective. Basic knowledge of Greek and Hebrew, specifically word studies and contribution of the LXX to NT understanding. Extensive study of EGW, ~ fifty of her books read in their entirety.
