The Fourth of July, Ellen White, and Social Justice — Adventist Voices

Written by: 
June 27, 2019

This week I talk with Stephen Allred who's been on an interesting Adventist journey. A graduate of the self-supporting Hartland College, he then got his MDiv from Andrews University and worked on the same pastoral staff as Doug Batchelor. In 2012 he received his JD from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law and now works on religious liberty cases for the Pacific Union's Church State Council.

In this episode we talk about racism, social justice, and Ellen White, as well as some of the tensions surrounding Adventist displays of patriotism and church/state separation.
