A Student Rebellion at an Adventist Institution Denounces the School as ‘Homop …

Social justice is not biblical justice. The modern movement for social justice and equity is turning our youth into a wild rebellious group of radical ideologues. The goal of these modern social justice warriors is to deconstruct, overthrow, tear apart and burn down the pillars and landmarks of our faith. Sadly, too many churches and Seventh-day Adventists have joined the revolution. On April 15, 2021, students at the Colegio Adventista de

One of the greatest indications that we have come to the end of God’s mercy is when we see churches, including Seventh-day Adventists, being bewitched by Rome and blindly “wondering” after the beast with great admiration.
