Walter Veith Banned from German Adventist Churches by Leaders

It seems the German church is up to its old tricks again.  First in 1940s they had their people sent to prison and killed on the war issue (no, I am not a part of the Reform, but no one can deny this historical fact), and now they are distancing themselves from Walter.  Very disappointing to see, however not overly surprising.  Please pray for their leaders, that they will reconsider and learn from the past, and also please pray for Walter, that he can stay strong in his faith and convictions.

The warnings that worldly conformity has silenced or withheld, must be given under the fiercest opposition from enemies of the faith. And at that time the superficial, conservative class [**note this means people who do not speak against sin**], whose influence has steadily retarded the progress of the work, will renounce the faith, and take their stand with its avowed enemies, toward whom their sympathies have long been tending. These apostates will then manifest the most bitter enmity, doing all in their power to oppress and malign their former brethren, and to excite indignation against them. This day is just before us. The members of the church will individually be tested and proved. They will be placed in circumstances where they will be forced to bear witness for the truth. Many will be called to speak before councils and in courts of justice, perhaps separately and alone. The experience which would have helped them in this emergency they have neglected to obtain, and their souls are burdened with remorse for wasted opportunities and neglected privileges.–Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 463.  {ChS 158.1}
