I was watching the 3ABN channel on cable and it is sad that so much anti-catholic nonsense is on the air. 3ABN is a Seventh Day Adventist cable network. The shows almost always are concerned with the endtimes and distorting history and Catholic teaching. This is nothing new for Seventh Day Adventists. Their earliest history in the nineteenth century is full of the same nonsense. The problem with the Adventists is same as the problem with so many protestant denominations. They lack the authority to proclaim the truth. Truth is defined by their particular interpretation scripture. Truth in many denominations is arrived at by the consensus of their leadership, often by vote. What so many seem to forget is that before there was a new testament, there was the Church. It was the Church that gave us the new testament. The Church had and has the authority that is apostolic which preserves and presents the true faith established by Christ.
