Letter from Trinitarian Bible Society

Showing why the original information in this book about them has been removed.


Due to the request of the Trinitarian Bible society we are unable to provide information about them here as they do not wish to be associated with Seventh-day Adventists.

Here is the letter from their representative: I have added numerical links with responses below this letter:

7 November, 2006

Dear Sir,

[1] We have recently had supporters express concern that, because of our being listed in H. H. Meyers's book The Battle of the Bibles and on the Temcat Web site, we have associated ourselves with the Seventh Day Adventists.

[2] As you are no doubt aware, many believe that SDA views are not in keeping with standard Protestantism. Therefore, it would be preferable if our name is not associated with your Web site and H. H. Meyers's book. I will be contacting Mr. Meyers's publisher. In the interim, please remove the information from the Trinitarian Bible Society found on

[3] It should also be noted that your link to Trinitarian Bible Society Canada on is invalid. This organisation no longer has any association with the Trinitarian Bible Society aside from Christian friendship, and is now known as the GraceWay Bible Society. Please change this on your Web site. (Indeed, you might wish to contact GraceWay to ask if they want to be listed on your site at all.)

Thank you for your help with this matter.

Dr. D. E. A

Assistant to the Editorial Manager

[1] is a privately owned, personal website and in no way owned or operated or affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist denomination with headquarters at Silver Springs MD. USA. We are independent Advent believers. Neither the book, its author, or the website is in anyway sponsored by the afore mentioned denomination. Neither does this website have any connection with the author of this interesting but out of print book.

[2] True Seventh-day Adventist believers do differ from "Standard Protestantism" in every way that "Standard Protestantism" differs from the Bible. Which is more important--being one with the popular crowd or being true to what the Bible really teaches? Always remember--it was the majority, popular crowd that crucified Jesus because He differed from the popular religious teachers of His day. Through the history of this world, truth has seldom, if ever been with the majority!

[3] If you had clicked on the link you would have found it is connected with GraceWay's site. I have been a member of this organization for several years. I guess our ideas of Christian Friendship may differ from yours somewhat.

Notice the attitude here: I cannot say that any website is among my favorites unless I have permission from someone to say that. Sounds like real Protestantism is dead and its children are preparing to join the inquisition at the side of Mother Rome. Well, here in Canada at least, we still have some freedom of speech.
