HopeMedia: "The Adventist Church in Solidarity with

Hope Media is the official news agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Italy. A March 15, 2022 headline from HopeMedia reads: "The Adventist Church in Solidarity with the Ukrainian Catholic Church." To stand in solidarity with someone, as in the case of Catholicism, means to be in "unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest."

One can certainly express regret for the suffering and lives lost in any war. We can certainly show concern for those who have been impacted by any crisis. We should feel this way for all victims. But it is a completely different matter for Seventh-day Adventist leaders to issue statements expressing solidarity with the Ukrainian Catholic Church, which is in communion with the Papacy and recognizes Pope Francis as its spiritual leader.

For Seventh-day Adventists to make a statement of solidarity with Catholicism has theological implications that are designed to establish a vague, non-doctrinal spirituality. This is a display of appeasement to Rome. They are blurring the lines between Adventists and Catholics. These acts of solidarity always tend to water-down the distinctiveness of our unique Adventist message.

It would have been better and more honest for our church leaders to say "we stand with all those who are suffering in this conflict in Ukraine" rather than stating "we are in solidarity with Catholicism." No one is against standing with the persecuted. However, by emphasizing and drawing attention to our willingness to stand in unity with Catholicism, we bury the fundamental and theological differences between the two faiths and project a false impression of Adventism to the world.
