Dear friend of Christ or Culture,
Thank you to you and the nearly 8,000 others who signed the www.christorculture.com petition. Your bold participation has made a decisive difference. We absolutely believe this website, along with insightful comments from Elder Wilson and the General Conference (GC) representatives, helped tip the scale in the right direction at the recent Pacific Union Conference (PUC) constituency meeting. The most important vote was won by the narrowest possible margin! Praise be to God!
Remember, the principle purpose of this special constituency meeting was to change the union’s bylaws to allow the PUC executive committee freedom to digress from North American Division and GC policies. This motion was defeated.
While the PUC meeting has been trumpeted as a victory by advocates of the women’s ordination movement, in reality, the second motion to ordain without regard to gender had no teeth. All the delegates had papers in their hands explaining that this was simply to communicate the voice of the delegates. The union has been out of harmony with the world church on this issue for years. The second motion did nothing new.
Thank you for helping the www.christorculture.com website educate many sincere people regarding these important issues.
What Can We Do Now?
- Pray – Continue to pray for revival in the Remnant Church and our faithful leaders.
- Correspond – Call or email your conference leaders and express your concerns.
- Give – Every member has some freedom with their discretionary giving. You can still vote with your wallet to support those conferences and ministries that uphold the biblical Seventh-day Adventist truths.
Even though the PUC vote is behind us, we will be leaving the Christ or Culture website up because this battle is far from over. Yes, it is still helpful to sign the petition!
The www.christorculture.com site has become a very important gathering place for news regarding the ordination issue, where loyal Adventists can come to be informed and share information and opinions. In addition, this site will provide a tremendous and growing body of valuable material as a resource on these significant issues.
Blessings as we move forward,
Christ or Culture developers
