#194: "An Adventist pastor supplied the following five marks of a cult. You be the judge whether or not his denomination fits his own definition of a cult."—Narrator.

#194: An Adventist pastor supplied this. When one reads what this pastor wrote, the credibility of all the information in the video is called into question.

These five marks were part of a letter to the editor of the Nelson Daily News written by Pastor Dan Stapleton. His letter, which can be found in its entirety in the documentation package under "Point 92," was in answer to charges which Keith MacGregor made in a newspaper article. The letter contains this interesting statement:

As for the accusations made by K. MacGregor against the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Ellen White, I'm sorry to see again his misrepresentations, historical inaccuracies, and false assessments in print. It was 14 years ago that I first read such things published by the "ministry" he represents and they are no more true now than they were then.

We have referred more than once to Lorri MacGregor, the script writer for this video. In the credits at the end of the video, her name tops the list of six who were responsible for the research. Keith MacGregor is her husband. The two of them were this video's co-producers, and they operate what is known as MacGregor Ministries, which is the publisher of the documentation package.

The reader likely will see the problem. The very documentation package that is supposed to substantiate the "facts" of the video actually provides documentation explaining why there are so many mistakes and misrepresentations in this video. As of 1997, the date of the article Pastor Stapleton referred to, the MacGregors had been doing this kind of thing for 14 years.
