Jesuit Infiltration of SDA Church / Clifford Goldstein Confession

Sabbath School Quarterly editor Clifford Goldstein has launched a two-pronged attack on the fundamental Adventist doctrines:

ATTACK ON THE SABBATH

"Don’t be part of the anti-intellectual obscurantist wing of the church, the fundamentalists who interpret Scripture in such a literal way that they insist on still keeping the seventh-day Sabbath instead of Sunday".  (Clifford Goldstein, Letter to Alexander, Adventist Review, 11 Nov 2015)

SCORN FOR THE SECOND COMING

"Who needs the Second Coming?"  (Clifford Goldstein, Enlightenment Woes, Adventist Review, 14 Jan 2015, p 21)

SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST REACTION

"Thus began six years of constant haranguing, in which I was accused of being everything from a Jesuit to a Communist". (Clifford Goldstein, The Mules that Angels Ride, p 28)

BUT ISN'T HE AT THE GENERAL CONFERENCE?

"The Jesuit carried the battle right into the territories of these papal enemies."

WELL, DOESN'T HE PREACH AT GYC AND CAMPMEETINGS?

"They infiltrated hostile territories in disguise, and moved around underground.  They were everywhere,

showering their contemporaries with brilliance, with wit, with acerbity, with learning, with piety".  (Malachi Martin, Jesuits, Simon and Schuster, 2013, p 28)

WHEN THEY'RE NOT LAUNCHING AN ATTACK ON THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT

"In England, Henry Garnet, one of the leading English Jesuits, was hanged for misprision of treason because of his knowledge of the Gunpowder Plot (1605). The Plot was the attempted assassination of King James I of England and VI of Scotland, his family, and most of the Protestant aristocracy". (Society of Jesus, Wikipedia)    

"And surely we are clever enough to come up with even more effective means of killing".  (Clifford Goldstein, Enlightenment Woes, Adventist Review, 14 Jan 2015, p 21)

Since "the Jesuits, by their very calling, by the very essence of their institution, are bound to seek, by every means, right or wrong, the destruction of Protestantism". (Giovanni Nicolini, History of the Jesuits, p v)

AND CLIFFORD WOULD REALLY DO THIS?

At the same time as Clifford was drawing a salary from the General Conference for the Quarterly job, he partnered with Mooch Feldmann to start an offshoot cult.  "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."  (Matthew 24:11, Holy Bible)

Calling themselves "Seventh Day Grace", they meet Saturdays in Olney in a rented church.   Clifford is their front man and most popular preacher.

AND WHY DO THEY NEED SO MUCH GRACE?

Before leaving Adventism, specifically Triadelphia Seventh-day Adventist church in Clarksville, they borrowed lots of money from Seventh-day Adventists.  A "Benny" here and a "Benny" there.  And sometimes much more.  "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."  (Matthew 24:11, Holy Bible)

THE ANATOMY OF THEIR DECEPTION

These cultic con artists refused to repay even one cent.  "And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." (Matthew 24:12, Holy Bible)

Obviously, "The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously".  (Psalm 37:21 NIV, Holy Bible)

To quiet their troubled consciences, they crank up the praise music, and engage Jesuit preachers since  "they had made fearful progress in the art of flattering the bad passions, and winking at the vices, of those who had recourse to their ministry in order to make, as they believed, their peace with God". (Giovanni Battista Nicolini, History of the Jesuits: their origin, progress, doctrines, and designs, George Bell and Sons, 1879, p 236)(see at left)

AND THIS CREDIT CULT COULD GET AWAY WITH ANY SORT OF RIP-OFF (WITH CLIFFORD'S BLESSING)?

In Proverbs, we read that "he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished".  (see tweet at right)

So the angel smote Mooch with serious heart problems, and her husband and business partner with pulmonary fibrosis.  "Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic irreversible and ultimately fatal disease characterized by a progressive decline in lung function. The term pulmonary fibrosis means scarring of lung tissue and is the cause of worsening dyspnea. Fibrosis is usually associated with a poor prognosis."  https://www.healthline.com/health/managing-idiopathic-pulmonary-fibrosis/ipf-facts#prevalence

"According to the study “Clinical Course and Prediction of Survival in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis,” median survival of patients who suffer from pulmonary fibrosis is 2.5 years". https://pulmonaryfibrosisnews.com/pulmonary-fibrosis-prognosis/

BIBLE PROPHECY FULFILLED

"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." (Matthew 24:12, Holy Bible)

SERIOUS INIQUITY

Clifford was involved in a scheme to divert Adventist tithe dollars for offshoot cultic gain.  Mooch Feldmann was also ripping off the Seventh-day Adventist church.  And the traitor's false blessing really didn't help Mooch and her husband one little bit, since the angel smote them anyway.

SO TAKE HEART, FELLOW SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS

This is God's church, and he'll dispatch the angel to smite betrayers anytime he needs to.

AND LEARN A LESSON FROM THEM

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."  (Hebrews 13:5, Holy Bible)
