Adventists In The Military: The Death of a Peace Church?


This presentation concludes the Advent Movement series at the Azure Hills Church in Grand Terrace, CA. Ron Osborn considers Adventists’ changing attitudes on military involvement.

The Azure Hills Church in Grand Terrace California has been hosting a multi-part series on Adventist history entitled “The Advent Movement: Progress or Regress?” In the video below, USC adjunct professor of Politics and International Relations, Ronald Osborn, addresses Adventists’ changing attitude on military involvement from strident anti-war non-combatancy to a much more lax attitude.

In the presentation, Osborn considers how and why sentiments have shifted within Adventism, and whether the current attitudes constitute progress or regress.

This is the final lecture in the Advent Movement series.
