    The Yazidi sect an ancient religion/cult dating back centuries, is. On the verge of extinction thanks to the genocide practiced by ISIS.

    The brutality of this genocide rivals the brutality of the genocides practiced. by the ancient Israelites, who on the orders of Yahweh, killed every man woman and child ( save for the virginal teens and pre teens, whom they kept as sex slaves) of their neighboring tribes

    Sounds like ISIS is following the playbook of the OLD TESTAMENT.
    The attractive younger women and girls are segregated from the rest, then repeatedly raped. All are forced to take daily birth control pills, since it is not “proper” for any Muslim man to have sex with a women impregnated by another man!

    Do these women/girls have guardian angels?.?
    Or are only Adventists and the 144 thousand so blessed??

    Does God run a psychiatric clinic for the Angels suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after being forced to watch their protégés being repeatedly gang raped?
    Are Angels watching as ISIS places people in cages and burns them alive, or drowns them underwater??
    Did God deliberately design the genocides of the OT so as to iinure and harden the Angels for future genocides— the Holpcaust, the Armenian, Bosnian?
    EGW informs us in her GREAT CONTROVERSY that the end. will come when the Angels “vindicate” God.
    Maybe they are unable to take this step when they watch the egregious atrocities God has ordained?.

      You can say you don’t understand, but I find your mocking tone to be offensive. Did you happen to read my previous note to you? We need to read the Bible with depth, love, and research. This church taught from the beginning that the Bible is not verbal inspiration dictated by God, and He is not on trial in the Bible. Most have ignored this–I would dare say those not given to educating themselves and not really believing in God. The Jewish culture in the early OT didn’t have a developed belief in the adversary and thought God did everything that happened. Truth is progressive and was finalized in the Person of Christ. That is the theological part; the experimental part of religion in the heart knows that God is perfect and therefore must be good and fair. Otherwise He would not exist as God. Note that all other gods are presented with human tendencies to sin and in reality don’t exist.

        I know it’s not fashionable to believe in evil beings–they come in many disguises and have something for every belief, mindset, nationality, culture, and politic. However, one cannot really believe in God and not believe in a devil and its followers (or forces).

    Robin,

    Thank you for the information regarding the attempted genocide of the Yazidi.

    It is refreshing to hear someone who works for an ostensibly religious organization say that it is not his/their place to make political decisions and that the organization will respect the political decisions that are made.

    Is it just me, or do other adventists have the impression that members of the General Conference executive committee are encouraging adventist laity to ignore or even subvert national policies and political decisions?

    Why not help them to return home? Are these genuine refugees when they bypass many safe countries to get to Germany? Why are the majority up to 80% men of fighting age? Arent these the same camps used by the terrorists to passage back and forth on their jihads to kill innocent people?
