As you know, the Emerging Church movement has been prominent in Evangelical circles for quite some time. However, it has made serious inroads into Seventh-day Adventism over the last four years. Our movement survived the alpha of apostasy during the Kellogg years, yet we were told the omega would be much worse--to the extent it made the prophet "tremble."
In response to the omega rising within the remnant church, "Operation Iceberg" was formed to educate our people on the dangers of this seemingly good, yet insidiously dangerous embracing of ancient mysticism and postmodernism.
On October 17th and 18th, the Sacramento Central Seventh-day Adventist Church will host a symposium of speakers, who are dedicated to exposing this danger (Eph 5:11). We ask you to pray for, and share the truths of the Everlasting Gospel to those who have been misled. Exposition without solution is but desolation (link).
Friday, October 17th:
6:30pm: Steve Wohlberg - "The Emerging Church Controversy within Adventism”
7:30pm: Janet Neumann - “A Church in Change?”
Sabbath, October 18th:
11:00am: Allen Davis - “The Power of the Everlasting Gospel”
1:30pm: Alexa Hernandez - “Adventism’s Emergence"
2:30pm: David Fielder - “When All Else Fails”
3:30pm: Gerry Wagoner - “The New Pagan Revival”
In addition to the speakers above, Stephen Bohr and Dustin Butler will join the group for a town hall panel beginning at 4:30pm Sabbath. This will be an opportunity to gain deeper insight into the issues as the speakers discuss more specific concerns and also field questions from the audience.
