Spiritual Formation infiltrates Adventist Church

"It has been observed that among the Indo-Europeans, the most ancient temples that were  dedicated to the gods were sacred groves" (G. Alexander, The Druids: A Comparative Study of Indo-European Pagan Practice, p 35), so it will come as no surprise that Andrews University maintains a huge sacred grove in close proximity to the altars in New Life chapel in Seminary Hall and the Pioneer Memorial Church -- since the Bible commands "Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God". (Deuteronomy 16:21, Holy Bible)

GUARDIAN OF THE SACRED GROVE

Dr. Constance Gane is the Old Testament and archaeology expert at Andrews. (see graphic at right) She knows exactly what the Bible has to say, and takes pride in her stately grove.

AS AT UPPSALA 

"There was a grove which surrounded the temple of Uppsala in Sweden which at one time represented the pagan capital of the country and both the temple and its grove survived up until the eleventh century" (G. Alexander, The Druids: A Comparative Study of Indo-European Pagan Practice, p 37) -- up until Christianity came.

But at Andrews, which is in name Christian, they prefer to ignore this passage:  "And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods". (Deuteronomy 12:3, Holy Bible)

Dr. Gane is in charge of the care, veneration, and feeding of a huge assortment of heathen deities. https://www.andrews.edu/sem/faculty_staff/faculty/constance-gane.html  (see photo at left from Andrews University cult temple)

Nobody at Andrews seems to mind these pagan cultic sites,

THE RADICAL FUNDAMENTALIST FRINGE

but there are some faithful Adventists out in the field who still believe.

Think Woodland Park SDA.  Or maybe a scripture commando from Wildwood raiding the Andrews campus -- torching Dr. Gane's  pagan grove, and smashing her heathen idols.  And probably getting arrested for their efforts.

So Dr. Gane has enclosed her favorite idols in security glass.  The house of the gods has a state-of-the-art alarm system.

And so the grove and heathen deities of Andrews University are well-preserved, and available for visits from devotees from around the world. https://www.andrews.edu/sem/faculty_staff/faculty/constance-gane.html

ADVENTIST FOUNDER ELLEN WHITE'S PROPHECY FULFILLED

"In the night season I was a witness to the performance that was carried on on the school grounds. The students who engaged in the grotesque mimicry that was seen, acted out the mind of the enemy, some in a very unbecoming manner. A view of things was presented before me in which the students were 

DR. CONSTANCE GANE'S INFLUENCE IS FELT CAMPUS-WIDE

playing games of tennis and cricket. Then I was given instruction regarding the character of these amusements. They were presented to me as 

IDOLATRY U.

a species of idolatry, like the idols of the nations."  (Ellen White, Counsels to Parents, Teachers, and Students, p 350)(see photo of Andrews University tennis courts at right)

That is, like "Hathor, the mother goddess (often interchangeable with Isis in this regard), was associated with love, fertility (in all its forms), music, dance, and alcohol."  (see graphic at left from Horn Archaeological Museum at Andrews University)

Touchdown.  In the Campus Center, funky sisters are shaking it.  To the tunes of dance classics played on their smartphones.  The brothers stand by in awe.   These are solid Christian sisters, in the best age for fertility, playing love music, and dancing.

I didn't see the alcohol, but every other practical manifestation of Hathor cultic veneration can be readily observed on the lovely campus of Andrews University.

And so Dr. Constance Gane is well pleased.  Her influence is felt all around campus, from the dance parties, to The Grove, to the House of the Heathen Gods.  The students at Andrews love the idolatry.  The tennis courts are jammed, so many students are gettin' jiggy, and enrollment is up.

Unfortunately, Dr. Gane's agenda is contrary to explicit divine commands.  (see also Exodus 20:4-6, Holy Bible)   And, as Adventists all know, "All who are not decided followers of Christ are servants of Satan." (Ellen White, Homeward Bound -- Daily Meditations from the Great Themes of Ellen White, p 339)

OFFICIAL DENOMINATIONAL CONFIRMATION

"The Scriptures testify that one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is prophecy. This gift is an identifying mark of the remnant church and we believe it was manifested in the ministry of Ellen G. White. Her writings speak with prophetic authority". (Seventh-day Adventist Fundamental Belief on The Gift of Prophecy)

And so these Seminary professors systematically mislead the youth, exposing them to a complete idolatry experience, since "The practice of blót - the sacrificial ritual in Norse paganism was usually held in lunds or sacred groves." (Sacred grove, Wikipedia)

BUT THE LORD WILL CLEAN HOUSE

"I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan,

CLUMSY INFILTRATION

who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you." (Revelation 3:9 NIV, Holy Bible)
