Hope you are well. Ladies and gentlemen I have received a letter from the United Sinners Alliance (U.S.A.) demanding they be acknowledged, tolerated and accepted as they are by this ministry. The USA’s offices are at 624 Babylon Way, Mesopotamia, Egypt. They explained that they are composed of 1.3% of the Seventh Day Adventist community and that God loves them as they are right now: adulterers, homosexuals, pedophiles, beastophiles, other sexual deviants, thieves, liars, hypocrites, slanderers, murderers, self-worshippers, blasphemers, witches, new agers, hippies, communists, neo Nazis, Black Lives Matter, racists, bigots, social justice warriors, climate control warriors, etc. etc. etc. the list of sinners went on and on.
I responded with agreement that God does love them as they are now and asked for clarification “Are you un/repentant sinners who choose to follow Jesus and leave your sins?” It was strange, silence for weeks and months. Then I received two new letters from two new groups, the United Repentant Sinners Congregation (URSC) and the Unrepentant Sinners Alliance (USA). The new URSC offices are located at 724 Salvation Road, Heaven, Coming Again. The new USA offices are located at 666 Sodom Court, Hades, Sheol.
As I read through the two new letters I came to learn that there had been an agreement to disagree and respect each others God given choice to live out their believes. The URSC quoted scripture, prayer and the Holy Spirit as the force for their choice. The USA group quoted SDA Pastor John McLarty (email@example.com 206-522-1330) of the Green Lake Church near Seattle, Washington State. The USA group pointed out Pastor McLarty’s credentials and achievements: 10 years as editor of Adventist Today, author of Stand at the Cross and Adventist Spirituality for Thinkers and Seekers, several articles published in The Adventist Review, Minstry and Signs of the Times; furthermore, attended Southern Adventist University, Middle East College (Beirut), U. of Memphis, Pacific Union College and finally received his Master of Divinity from Andrews University.
I inquired of USA, “how can a SDA Pastor influence you this way?” They sent me the following video of Pastor McLarty’s sermon to watch:
I was in disbelief, I could not believe what I had just seen and heard from a fulltime employee-senior pastor-seventh-day-Adventist. I went to the Bible to make sense of Pastor McLartey’s perspective and read:
Jeremiah 17:5 (KJV)
5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.
Matthew 5:18 (KJV)
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Matthew 7:13-15 (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 (KJV)
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.
Revelation 22:18-19 (KJV)
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
