The RemnantClifford Goldstein
Incest. Adultery. Theft. Prejudice. Murder.
A description of the sins of those who have rejected God in these last days? No. Just a sampling of the sins found in the pews of a church that describes itself as "the remnant."
With all of it's "new-light" emphasis on good works, health reform, Christian standards, and latter-rain expectations, the Seventh-day Adventist Church struggles with many of the same vices it condemns in the "lost" world outside its doors.
The inconsistency of profession and practice painfully evident in our denomination causes many to doubt the church's remnant status. Others see spiritual pride, hypocrisy, and arrogance in this claim to chosenness. What's the truth?
With passion and sincerity, Clifford Goldstein examines the Church he loves under the microscope of Bible prophecy and wrestles with the questions: Who is the remnant? Can Laodicea be the remnant? Does the idea of a "remnant within a remnant" have any basis? Can the remnant apostatize? And more?
God is still calling out a people to be wholly His. A people who will represent Him more splendidly that any prior generation. Is it too late for Adventism to respond to the call?
