El presidente de la Asociación General abre la conferencia sobre Biblia y Ciencia

La Conferencia Internacional sobre Biblia y Ciencia abrió con una gran explosión el viernes 15 del pasado agosto en Las Vegas, cuando el presidente de la Asociación General, Ted Wilson, dijo a los profesores, científicos y administradores presentes, y a pastores de todo el mundo que, "si uno no comparte la idea de que la tierra fue creada recientemente en seis días, entonces esa persona no es en realidad un adventista del Séptimo Día ".

Real Names and the State of the Commentariat

In philosophy and other areas of controversy, like politics, we often come to adopt a view on a disputed matter.

And I think that taking such a strong stand on a disputed issue can be good.

That’s what Adventist Forum will be doing October 3-5, and we’ll be staying at the San Diego Sheraton Marina Hotel.

Varios adventistas influyentes que defendían la ordenación de la mujer en los '70 cambiaron de opinión en los '80

La discusión teológica sobre la sumisión a las autoridades de la que habla Pablo en varias de sus cartas, (en inglés se resume en “headship theology” y por tanto lo traduciremos como “teología de la jefatura”, a falta de una mejor propuesta) que ha tenido lugar en el Comité de Estudio sobre la Teología de la Ordenación (TOSC por sus siglas en inglés) recientemente, impulsó a Gerry Chudleigh a emprender una investigación histórica adicional.
