Paulsen speaks on issue of origins

By Andreas Goelzer - Posted on 19 June 2009

Responding to ongoing discussions in the church, the president of the Seventh-day Adventist world church urged Adventists to look to scripture as the validity of their faith as it relates to origins.

In a statement released today, Pastor Jan Paulsen appealed to church administrators, ministers, teachers and writers to articulate and reflect the church's stand on creation.

"We must not allow ourselves to come adrift from the Bible in defining our values and in stating what we hold," Paulsen said.

Paulsen referred to the church's position on creation, which was affirmed by the General Conference Executive Committee in October of 2004.

Paulsen said that his appeal came with respect for integrity and professional skills from educators, ministers and writers.
