Spiritual Formation in Adventist Evangelism

FELT NEED FOR SPIRITUAL FORMATION

"I’d often drive up here into Seattle, park the car, walk around, look at all the people, and say, “Man, I wonder how in the world you could reach people like this!”" (Greg Nelson, The Light is On in Seattle, Adventist Review, 26 Jul 2001)

CRACK TEAM OF SDA SPIRITUAL FORMATION EXPERTS

The One Project found the answer, attracting huge crowds to their Seattle Gatherings.  (see at right)

And now,  "We are often asked to explain the secret of the One project’s success." https://boulder.church/the1project

"Simply put, sex in advertising is the use of sexually provocative or erotic imagery (or sounds, suggestions, and subliminal messages) that are specifically designed to arouse interest in a particular product, service or brand.  Typically, sex refers to beautiful women (and increasingly, handsome men) that are used to lure in a viewer, reader or listener" (Paul Suggett, Does Sex Really Sell in Advertising?, The Balance Careers, 3 Jan 2018)(as shown at left):  Bodybuilder "Bryan, the son of a pediatrician and a nurse, has served as senior pastor of the University Church since 2009, where he expanded ministry programs" (One Project  founder Alex Bryan in Alex Bryan, Walla Walla Church Pastor, to Lead Kettering College of Medical Arts, Adventist Review, 19 Apr 2013) to the gym, where 

CENTERING PRAYER

"I was standing there admiring myself."
     
OUTREACH MINISTRY

"In the reflection of the mirror, there he was -- a man!!" 

THE BAPTISMAL CANDIDATE WAS "READY TO GO"

"He was cut, ripped, buff, ready to go."

TURNING UP THE TEMPERATURE

"Our eyes locked, and neither one of us could look away.  We just stood there staring at one another."  (One Project Founder Alex Bryan, ...to Be Continued: Acts 8:9-25 Sermon, Walla Walla University Church of Seventh-day Adventists, 24 Feb 2018, Minute 55)

BUT THEN NATURE TOOK IT'S COURSE

"My brother, I've been to your house. I've had the dirty bird". (One Project Co-founder Tim Gillespie, The Heresy Response Sermon, One Project 6 Gathering, http://vimeo.com/71480214 minute 14)

"When ads are more sexually provocative, men in particular are irresistibly drawn to them. It's simple genetics. Men respond to sexual images.  

THE SECRET OF THEIR SUCCESS REVEALED

And if your ad creates a sexual situation, it will get the desired response." (Paul Suggett, Does Sex Really Sell in Advertising?, The Balance Careers, 3 Jan 2018)

AND THIS IS ALL REALLY ADVENTIST?

"We should protect the rights of homosexual persons". (Roy Gane, Tuesday Choice: The Old Testament and Homosexuality, Andrews University, 5 Mar 2013, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6KGuJr7jLY, minute 22)

THE SABBATH SCHOOL QUARTERLY HAS HIS BACK

"I’m sure Jesus looks approvingly on ‘loving, monoganamous, and committed’ homosexual sodomy". (Clifford Goldstein, see screenshot below)

AND NOW OTHER CLOSETED THEOLOGIANS STARTED COMING OUT THICK AND FAST

"through study and prayer she had embraced a theology that affirms and includes LGBT people, and two, she herself was bisexual." (Bisexual Adventist And Former Pastor Alicia Johnston Contemplates Ministry After Coming Out, 13 May 2017, https://epeak.info/2017/05/13/bisexual-adventist-and-former-pastor-alicia-johnston-contemplates-ministry-after-coming-ou  

AND YES, CLIFFORD DOES PRACTICE WHAT HE PREACHES

"I loved Leaves of Grass" (Clifford Goldstein, It is so, Adventist Review, 16 Jan 2014), "which celebrates the soul through the trope of fellatio: ‘Loafe with me on the grass, loose the stop from your throat, / … Only the lull I like, the hum of your valved voice’.  Leaves of Grass, the title Whitman gave his collected poems, pivots upon this dalliance with a young man in the grass." (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Allied Resource Office, Walt Whitman, University of Illinois Springfield, http://www.uis.edu/lgbtqa/WaltWhitman/)

OPENING THE FLOODGATES

After Clifford came out, the Island Chef (Hana) started thinking, Maybe Jesus looks approvingly on smoking loving, committed, premium weed.  ($300/ounce)

During her time at Rio Lindo Adventist Academy, she had developed a fondness for joints. 

In those days, management frowned on these pleasures, so she desperately searched the scriptures for an answer to her predicament.

AND FOUND ONE PASSAGE
