God instructed Ellen White to warn His people not to join with labor unions, but Advent Health and Loma Linda University Hospital have set aside this clear command from God. It is another example of rebellion and apostasy.
Ellen White wrote: "Those who claim to be the children of God are in no case to bind up, with the labor unions that are formed or that shall be formed. This the Lord forbids." (7MR 57) "The trades unions will be one of the agencies that will bring upon this earth a time of trouble such as has not been since the world began." (LDE 117) She added, "They may be church members, but while they belong to these unions they cannot possibly keep the commandments of God, for to belong to these unions means to disregard the entire Decalogue." (2MR 179)
In the culmination of a months-long organizing effort, resident physicians at Loma Linda University Health voted to unionize on June 22, 2023. The historic vote is the latest chapter in the most prominent recent showdown between a Seventh-day Adventist health care institution and organized labor.
According to the National Labor Relations Board, which held the election, the final margin was 361 in favor of joining the Union of American Physicians and Dentists, 144 against. Approximately two-thirds of the 805 eligible resident physicians submitted a ballot.

Brazil Pathfinders Know How to Party
Pathfinder Clubs were established to teach important life skills and instill Christlike traits in Adventist children and youth. Sadly, much of the focus today is on having fun and imitating the world. We ask, how do stunning visuals, daredevil motorcycle stunts, loud rap music, and stirring the youth into a frenzy help their impressionable minds to build Christlike characters?
