Spiritual Formation corrupts Adventist Church

LIKE EASTERN MYSTICISM, SPIRITUAL FORMATION INVOLVES A LOT OF CHANTING

"Spiritual formation is an intentional Christian practice much like that of Eastern Mysticism, which claims as its goal the development of religious maturity that leads to Christian devoutness which  

SPECIFICALLY, THE IGNATIAN SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

has it roots in the ancient practices found in those of Catholic religious orders, Ascetics and others." (Spiritual formation, Wikipedia)

NEW BIBLE VERSES EMERGE FROM THE CHANTING
 
"Jesus, in Luke 22:19, says, Do this:
Do this in remembrance of me
Do this in reaction to me
Do this in response after me
Do this with regard for me
Do this dance in rhythm with me
Do this breathe to be revived with me

Do this to wage revolution, under me
Do this in remembrance of me.   Do this". (Alex Bryan, The Meal Sermon, One Project Gathering Seattle 2016, 14 Feb 2016, https://vimeo.com/157631942 minute 1)

Prominent guru Alex Bryan has developed some new commandments that appear nowhere in the Bible.

HOW THEY GET THEIR INSPIRATIONS

Even though Alex Bryan claims Luke 22:19 requires rhythmic dancing and revolution, he's getting his information from an "extra-biblical source":  But "you got the incense and you've been chanting, and all of a sudden you hear this voice:  'Write this down'".  (Carlos Santana cited in Chris Heath, The Epic Life of Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone, 16 Mar 2000, see graphic at left)

HIS SPIRIT GUIDE TOLD HIM TO WRITE DOWN HIS NEW VERSION OF LUKE 22:19

LECTIO DIVINA DOWNGRADES ELLEN WHITE COUNSELS

"Pope Benedict XVI said in a 2005 speech, “I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of lectio divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking"".   (Address Of His Holiness Benedict XVI To The Participants In The International Congress Organized To Commemorate The 40th Anniversary Of The Dogmatic Constitution On Divine Revelation "Dei Verbum", 16 Sep 2005)

Even though he loves coffee, Rich Carlson is campus chaplain at Union College.  https://www.ucollege.edu/facultaff/ricarlso  After lighting up his candles, he went to work on this verse of scripture:  "Tea and coffee drinking is a sin, an injurious indulgence, which, like other evils, injures the soul." (Ellen White, Counsels on Diet and Foods, p 425)

RICH CARLSON GETS A WORD FROM METATRON

"Metatron is an angel. Santana has been in regular contact with him since 1994. Carlos will sit here facing the wall, the candles lit. He has a yellow legal pad at one side, ready for the communications that will come. "It's kind of like a fax machine," he says."  (Chris Heath, The Epic Life of Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone, 16 Mar 2000)

Rich Carlson got word from Metatron that drinking coffee is just fine -- in fact, its a fundamental Adventist belief now:  "I coordinate the non-academic spiritual life on campus, including programming, community services, student missions and spiritual leadership training/mentoring.

I also teach four classes: an Adventist Beliefs class to new and non-Adventists, How to Study the Bible, Abnormal Psychology, and Introduction to Overseas Service."  https://www.ucollege.edu/facultaff/ricarlso

BUT WASN'T THIS CONTRARY TO SISTER WHITE AND THE FUNDAMENTAL ADVENTIST BELIEFS?

"It is just an inner voice, and you trust it. That voice will never take you to the desert." (Carlos Santana cited in Chris Heath, The Epic Life of Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone, 16 Mar 2000)

Which was welcome information for Sabbath School Quarterly editor Clifford "Cliff" Goldstein.

CLIFFORD GETS LUCKY

He'd long struggled with certain inclinations, but now he got himself some big candles, and started chanting.

In practically no time, he got the revelation "I'm sure Jesus looks approvingly on 'loving, monoganamous, and committed' homosexual sodomy".   "He sees Metatron in his dreams and meditations. He looks a bit like Santa Claus – "white beard, and kind of this jolly fellow." Metatron, who has been mentioned in mystical disciplines through the ages, also appears as the eye inside the triangle." (Chris Heath, The Epic Life of Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone, 16 Mar 2000)

THEY'RE JUST FULFILLING BIBLE PROPHECY

"​None of this should come as a surprise, at least not to anyone who takes seriously the scriptural description of the human condition and what the Word of God portends for the last days before the second coming of Jesus.  "At that time many will turn away from the faith"".  (Clifford Goldstein, Enlightenment Woes, Adventist Review, 14 Jan 2015)
