The first quote doesn't address the ordination of gospel ministers.

The second quote is referring to something akin to the work of deaconesses, which is not the same as that of gospel ministers.

The third quote gives no hint that it's talking about gospel ministers. It concerns sisters who were already present and active in a local church, and thus appears to be referring to prohibiting them from serving as treasurer, clerk, or board member. It's the laity that are supposed to be managing our local churches, not gospel ministers.

When you reject the basic principle in the Sanctuary Doctrine and place a male priest as a must between Christ and any individual, you are reading Scripture and the Spirit of Prophecy in a way to lead your Brothers and Sisters astray in the final battle between good and evil, and we have little to discuss, as long as you insist on deceiving the elect in your interpretation.

This is infiltrating a Roman Catholic doctrine into Adventism.

Any cause that must resort to misrepresentation to win is an unrighteous one.

  • The earthly sanctuary never had a woman priest. Only men could be priests.
  • Adventists who believe that only men should be ordained to the gospel ministry do not believe that gospel ministers are priests between Christ and any person.
  • Such statements as you have made are tantamount to saying that anyone who believes that the husband should be the head and the priest of his home is adopting Roman Catholicism, even though AH 212 plainly calls the father the priest of his household.

Rather than accusing those who believe the Bible of adopting a Catholic doctrine, show from the Scriptures that God has changed the order of things that He established at creation and the fall. If someone claims that God changed the Sabbath, we ask him where the Bible says so. Likewise, if you think God has changed the order of things that He Himself established, then show us where the Bible says so.
