Alexander Carpenter makes some interesting points in the Spectrum article, “What the Church Can Learn from the GOP” (May 8, 2009)
The next generation wants action. And smart too. Under Elder Paulsen, the Adventist Church has reaffirmed our non-combatancy stance, connected our creation doctrine to care for the environment and turned our attention to advocacy on issues like HIV/AIDS in Africa. Future leadership must keep this action alive as Adventism has to convert truth to action for the next generation to care.
