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 […]

Why Adventist Church?

February 10, 2016

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 […]

Author: Ken Lytle Even though I grew up in the Adventist church, I don’t remember hearing about sex very much.  As kids in the church, we would giggle about anything sexual.  We would find sexual references in the Bible and giggle about that too. Throughout my Adventist church and church school years, sex was never […]

Author: Ken Lytle Satan uses many temptations to attack the human race. Why is sex such a powerful temptation for so many people?  “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry” – Colossians 3:5. As I consider my personal journey through life, I […]

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

November 26, 2013

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 […]

Rebellion in NAD Leadership

November 6, 2013

Author: Ken Lytle As I research the method the North American Division Theology of Ordination Study Committee used to address the issue of women’s ordination, I can see that the liberals were given an unfair advantage in presenting material.  Instead of providing a fair playing field for prayerful study, the liberals in our NAD leadership “pushed” […]
