I don't know of any SDA pastors with God right now. I believe that they're all serving themselves.

Believe Dr Walter Veith is the Real Deal, there are others also

as for the Pastor mentioned in the Topic Heading, Spending a Year without God is actually impossible as God is Omnipresent, Ever Present

God is there All the Time Regardless of If They Want Him to be or Not

Walter Veith and his theory

An inquiry is currently underway in Germany concerning Walter Veith and anti-semitism charges. In our previously published report, the circumstances and dialogue that took place in this incident are outlined. On December 4, 2012, the two German SDA Unions NDV and SDV in an annual general meeting made the decision 45 in favour, 4 opposed, and 1 undecided to ban Walter Veith from speaking in German SDA Churches for the second time. The previous ban took place in 2004 due to his lectures on Bible translations and what was termed as "conspiracy theories" which were highly disapproved of by German leaders. The ban was lifted in 2010, but now has been reinstated.

I believe that Dr Veith is sincere but his kooky conspiracy theories are just incoherent fantasies that detract from the third angel's message.

That doesn't even begin to address the question of the errors in Walter Veith's theories.

|Anit Semitism is found in whites books as well, especially early writings. Addventists have more ties to Isamists that the people of Isreal.

there's at least two Canadian nutjobs here!
Wake Up and STOP THE HATE!!
'semite' is Not synonymous with 'jew, and the average Arab in the Middle East today is Much more likely to be an actual semite (descendant of Shem) than the average so-called 'jew'!!
There are NO 'people of Israel' since there is no physical place called 'Israel', hasn't been for a looong time. Just because some so-called jews (mostly Khazars) bullied their way into Palestine as of 1948 and have been occupying the land that's NOT theirs doesn't mean it's a legitimate country or that they have the right to be there calling it their own and continue to 'ethnically cleanse'(mass-murder) the people of Palestine!
'Thou Shalt Not Murder' is a commandment with No exceptions!

"Former Pastor Decides To Spend A Year Without God"

2 Peter 2 comes to mind.

If you're experiencing doubt, don't entertain the thought any further...rebuke it. Pray to God Almighty and fill your heart and mind with His Word. Here are a few passages to start with.

Ps 53:1
The fool has said in his heart,“There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.

James 1:6
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

Proverbs 3:5-8
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.

Jeremiah 17:7
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord.

Massachusetts has THREE nut jobs and the poster above is a prime example of the common folk down there. I'm proud to be Canadian, and I have a PhD.

Amen!

That man was losing his faith a long time ago: he's now seeking fame and fortune.
