Hi John,
.
Although, the changes in my faith will seem far reaching to most Adventists, they only effect my understanding of the gospel itself, i.e. faith alone, grace alone, through Christ alone, and the Bible Covenants. Which amounts to a change in my understanding about Ellen White, the Investigative Judgment and the Sinaic Law including but not withstanding the Sabbath, and by default, my understanding about end time events.
.
The other aspects of my faith  have remained unchanged. My understanding of the State of the Dead, annihilation of the wicked, the millennium, the glorious second coming of Christ, are the same in every way, as what I believed as a Seventh-day Adventist.
.
I still maintain that charismatic speaking in tongues, being “slain in the spirit,” many of the modern healing movements, the secret rapture, “once saved always saved,” and Calvinism’s notion that God predestines some to be lost, are unscriptural.
.
I believe, that many former Adventists “have thrown the baby out with the bath water,” having rejected the state of the dead; and by rejecting the annihilation of the wicked in the lake of fire. I am sincerely grieved that many former Adventists have abandoned these views and have adopted Calvinism. I have debated other former Adventists about some of these issues at great length. Thus I still confidently defend the same positions on these matters that I did while I was still an Adventist and remain as convinced by them as I was before., and will remain so until such a time that my conscience can be convinced otherwise by scripture.
.
My hope is that this brief reply answers your question, and that if you have any further questions about any of these or other matters that you will not hesitate to write me again. I am very pleased to answer any and all of your questions, and to discuss any and all of your concerns. Thank you for your inquiry, and interest.
.
BLESSINGS IN THE LORD!!!

This letter demonstrates, that my change in faith has nothing to do with “gaining popular opinion/favor.” There is nothing popular about any of these positions!
