Ordained Pastors Rebel

March 4, 2016

Author: Ken Lytle  The Women’s Ordination controversy is alive and well.  There are a number of Adventist Church leaders and members who believe women should have the same leadership roles as men in the Adventist Church.  This belief is in direct contradiction to the Word of God.  The Bible clearly teaches men are to be […]

Author: Ken Lytle Why do you go to church on a weekly basis?  Do you think Sabbath School class, worship service, and fellowship meal is church? Or is there something more to the word, church? “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and […]

Author: Ken Lytle HELP!!! I just attended the opening night of another evangelistic meeting and nothing has changed.  The same prep work… the same format… the same member support (few members in attendance)… the same visitor attendance (low numbers)…  Do a little prep work, throw out some flyers, and have a paid evangelist deliver a […]

Why Adventist Church?

I have been away from Adventist Voice for awhile because of internal conflicts about the Adventist organization.  I grew up Adventist, going to Adventist schools and marrying an Adventist girl.  After attending and assisting with an evangelistic meeting in 2000, I got serious about God and went off to Union College to study Theology. My […]

Author: Ken Lytle Have you ever lost your passion for church?  I have.  It can be difficult to be passionate about church when there is not a healthy local church to attend and the local conference is doing very little to provide good leadership. When it comes to church, we have Biblical and Spirit of […]

What does it mean to be an Adventist church minister and leader?  The Good Book says… And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding. — Jeremiah 3:15 These shepherds are ministers, pastors, and other church leaders (including conference officials).  It is the responsibility of the spiritual leaders […]

Adventist Segregation

Where are the voices of concern in the Adventist Church when it comes to segregation of Adventist conferences, churches, and schools? Instead of seeking pure Christian unity and brotherly love in North America, we turn a blind-eye to the division of church members because of skin color and naively continue on as if nothing is […]

Author: Ken Lytle Most people claim to be Christian.  You hear in the news, “We are a Christian nation.”  Yet we see very little Christianity being displayed in the world around.  The Bible has a lot to say about what it means to be a Christian… “Then the King shall say to those on His […]
