Pastor Stephen Bohr of Secrets Unsealed was scheduled to present a two day Seminar (The Final Test) at the Downers Grove, IL Seventh-day Adventist Church on June 28, 29. An ordained minister, Pastor Bohr is a respected Bible teacher in good standing who teaches & preaches around the world.
The Illinois SDA Conference intervened on June 13 and was able to force the Downers Grove SDA Church to cancel the Secrets Unsealed event.
Stephen Bohr supports biblical male leadership in the Church. This makes him opposed to the ordination of women and the agenda that drives it. He also believes (as did Ellen White) that God will have a people in the end time that are so submitted to Jesus Christ and His Law that they will receive a special divine seal of mutual belonging. The Illinois Conference resents his position on these topics.
Is it right for a Conference President and Ministerial Director to tell a local Church who they can invite to speak?
