The Fundamental Beliefs

Chapter 10


At the 1980 General Conference session in Dallas, Texas; the dramatic changes to the Fundamental Beliefs were voted in, under much protest, and were published in the 1981 Year Book. The First Belief pertained to the Holy Scriptures and is fine as written.

The second belief pertains to the Trinity and says the following: "There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons. God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present. He is infinite and beyond human comprehension, yet known through His self-revelation. He is forever worthy of worship, adoration, and service by the whole creation.” (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 4:46; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Tim. 17; Rev. 14:7.) {1981, FB1981 5.5}

This is a significant departure from the Fundamental Principles that God led the pioneers to establish with His blessings which we therefore were to hold firmly, with the grip of faith. Wherein the Father was the only eternal One who had no beginning, in 1981 we now have three co-equal, co-eternal Beings.
The third 1981 belief is pertaining to God the Eternal Father;

God the Eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The qualities and powers exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also revelations of the Father. (Gen. 1:1; Rev. 4:11; 1 Cor. 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Tim. 1:17; Ex. 34:6, 7; John 14:9.) {1981, FB1981 5.7}

The fourth 1981 belief is pertaining to God the eternal Son;

God the eternal Son became incarnate in Jesus Christ. Through Him all things were created, the character of God is revealed, the salvation of humanity is accomplished, and the world is judged. Forever truly God, He became also truly man, Jesus the Christ. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived and experienced temptation as a human being, but perfectly exemplified the righteousness and love of God. By His miracles He manifested God's power and was attested as God's promised Messiah. He suffered and died voluntarily on the cross for our sins and in our place, was raised from the dead, and ascended to minister in the heavenly sanctuary in our behalf. He will come again in glory for the final deliverance of His people and the restoration of all things. (John 1:1-3, 14; Col. 1:15-19; John 10:30; 14:9; Rom. 6:23; 2 Cor. 5:17-19; John 5:22; Luke 1:35; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 2:9-18; 1 Cor. 15:3, 4; Heb. 8:1, 2; John 14:1-3.) {1981, FB1981 5.9}

The fifth 1981 belief is pertaining to God the eternal Holy Spirit;

God the eternal Spirit was active with the Father and the Son in Creation, incarnation, and redemption. He inspired the writers of Scripture. He filled Christ's life with power. He draws and convicts human beings; and those who respond He renews and transforms into the image of God. Sent by the Father and the Son to be always with His children, He extends spiritual gifts to the church, empowers it to bear witness to Christ, and in harmony with the Scriptures leads it into all truth. (Gen. 1:1, 2; Luke 1:35; 4:18; Acts 10:38; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Cor. 3:18; Eph. 4:11, 12; Acts 1:8; John 14:16-18, 26, 27; 16:17-13.) {1981, FB1981 5.11}

Three Gods which are called the Trinity. Some Adventists believe in the Catholic view of a three in one, or Triune God, while others believe in the Tri-theism view, three distinct and separate, co-equal and co-eternal Gods. Satan really doesn’t care which of the two views you believe, just as long as you accept the Seventh-day Adventist church that he has crafted for this time. A church that has literally done away with the First commandment with a third god, just as the Papacy did away with the fourth commandment. However both commandments are still in place with a judgment against violators. God’s command is to cry aloud and spare not and I for one can do no less. How we need to lift our prayers to our Father to open the blind eyes of our brothers and sisters who fail to understand the darkness they are enveloped in.

How could this have happened? We have the answer in AA580.1 “But after a time the zeal of the believers began to wane, and their love for God and for one another grew less. Coldness crept into the church. Some forgot the wonderful manner in which they had received the truth. One by one the old standard-bearers fell at their post. Some of the younger workers, who might have shared the burdens of these pioneers, and thus have been prepared for wise leadership, had become weary of oft-repeated truths. In their desire for something novel and startling, they attempted to introduce new phases of doctrine, more pleasing to many minds, but not in harmony with the fundamental principles of the gospel. In their self-confidence and spiritual blindness they failed to discern that these sophistries would cause many to question the experiences of the past, and would thus lead to confusion and unbelief.” {AA 580.1}
Even though this was describing a time in the early Christian church, it perfectly describes, with enhanced magnification, the Laodicean church and the cause of the apostasy. What has been, will be. Nothing new under the sun.

We read this from CCh 326.7, “I beseech those who are laboring for God not to accept the spurious for the genuine. Let not human reason be placed where divine, sanctifying truth should be. Christ is waiting to kindle faith and love in the hearts of His people. Let not erroneous theories receive countenance from the people who ought to be standing firm on the platform of eternal truth. God calls upon us to hold firmly to the fundamental principles that are based upon unquestionable authority.” {CCh 326.7}

And this special warning:
“No line of truth that has made the Seventh-day Adventist people what they are, is to be weakened. We have the old landmarks of truth, experience, and duty, and we are to stand firmly in defense of our principles, in full view of the world.”--Testimonies, Vol. 6, p. 17. {CW 52.3}

The pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church were consistent in their beliefs and teachings. They believed that Jesus was truly the Son of the eternal God and that at some point back in eternity, He was begotten, before creation, and was appointed by the Father to be the Creator. The pioneers believed also that He who was fully divine, one with his Father, equal in power and authority, possessing all the attributes of the Father and that they were one in character, mind, and Spirit.

The evidence is clear, unmistakable and irrefutable. Kellogg’s trinity is now the Trinity doctrine of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Omega of Apostasy was fully solidified in 1980/1981.

The non-Trinitarian teachings are being embraced now by up to 3 million Seventh-day Adventists around the world. It is causing a shaking in the church like nothing else ever has. We will enlarge on this in Chapter 11, “The Shaking in God’s Church.”
