Dr. Roger Coon has served his church for more than a half-century in numerous and varied leadership roles, including pastor, evangelist, teacher, author, and hospital chaplain among others. He is perhaps best-known for his work in theological education, having co-founded the Adventist Seminary of West Africa, and taught courses or served as guest lecturer on the campuses of 33 of the 87 institutions of higher education operated by Seventh-day Adventists worldwide. He also served as Associate Director of the White Estate for 12 years until his retirement in 1993. He continued to be a much-in-demand speaker at church gatherings until he passed away on February 2, 2011.
In 1890 Ellen White spoke of "the very last deception of Satan" within Adventism as being a concerted effort to accomplish two goals: 1) To destroy her credibility as a true prophet of the Lord, and 2) The creation of a "Satanic...hatred" against those writings--"Satanic" both as to origin, and also as to intensity. (1SM48:3,4)
This is part one of the 5 part series. THE "CREDIBILITY" ISSUE: The Barrier of Seemingly-Absurd Statements From Science. Ellen White made some dozen-and-a-half statements in the area of the scientific that today seem peculiar, even preposterous, and totally "off-the-wall." And a few that otherwise might have believed in her divine inspiration, upon discovering the evidence, sometimes helplessly throw up their hands, saying, "How could a true prophet say that?" This presentation deals with this barrier within the broader context of the Nature of Faith and the Danger of Doubt.
