“Catholics are poised to take on a historic role in America that can transform the future of our country…” National Catholic Register, May 20-26, 2007 issue. Maybe it’s time for Adventists to restudy Revelation 13 and clarify in our own minds who the first (sea) beast is and who the second (land) beast is, and what their relationship is at the end of time. For excellent commentary on this read The Great Controversy, Chapters 25 (pp. 433-450) and 35 (pp. 563-581).
