Jackson’s oration was, as Fulcrum labelled it, a tirade. It was NAD’s Elder Jackson’s shtick, but it could have been reverend Jackson’s, another hyper-activist of the same name of an earlier era.
The gap is rapidly narrowing between liberal evangelicalism and liberal Adventism. Dan Wysong should feel right at home each Sunday.

Where is the ’Thus Saith the Lord‘ to sustain this speculation? Individual impressions and "other people being shown the same thing" is not a replacement for complete reliance on prophetic authority.
GC ADCOM stands for the General Conference Administrative Committee, a committee of approximately 58 (46 members and 12 invitees) leaders that generally meets weekly at the world headquarters.
The NAD Executive Committee has just composed a document in reaction to the Compliance Document. The NAD Document will be sent to the GC.
God’s leaders are not beholden to the people they serve; but rather to the God they serve.
Andrews University chaplain Michael Polite says he wants a revolution. Polite, like so many developed world Adventists, is all worked up over the Annual Council vote adopting the compliance committees.
Now is a time like never before to come into oneness with our high Priest in His “office work” on our behalf and on behalf of others.
The Church doesn’t need more mutineers exposing themselves, it needs the unifying experience of honoring God through His Word, and humbly serving our fellow man.
So long as Jackson and his fellow travelers press forward the radical understanding of church governance they are acting on, there is little hope for unity in the world body.
If someone had made unsubstantiated public allegations against any of us in the manner that have been asserted against Elder Wilson I would hope that somebody would step forward to vigorously defend us.
Think of it—this whole mess can be solved in five minutes! In this light, I make this open appeal to my fellow ‘non-compliant’ church leaders in our conferences, unions, and divisions.
The American Adventist Church was not immune to the cultural changes that gradually overwhelmed society. Adventism absorbed at least some of the new norms in ways that are now obvious.
The proposed “warning” and “reprimand” are designed to enable entities to think of the seriousness of non-compliance to voted actions of the world church, and to encourage them to come back into harmony with the world church.
When liberal elements in the Church say they are done, they usually aren’t.
