It became an international story last month. "Former Adventist Pastor Embarks on Year Without God." Perhaps you heard or read the story of how Ryan Bell, former pastor of the Hollywood Seventh-day Adventist Church, left the ministry and is now considering life without God.
In his article published by the Huffington Post, Bell briefly outlines his spiritual journey, struggles, and ultimate falling out with the church. Then, the paragraph that has garnered the most attention he states:
Pastor Ben is a pastor, marriage counselor, and international lecturer on Bible prophecy for more than 18 years. His lectures and preaching appointments have taken him to Europe, Australia, and Central America. He currently serves as the Lead Pastor for the South Tacoma Adventist Fellowship in Tacoma, WA.
