World in Focus & Simply the Truth ~ discussions of Adventist belief on live TV.
In April 2009 Victor Hulbert, Communication Director for the Seventh-day Adventist church in the UK and Ireland, was invited to appear on the Genesis TV programme, 'World in Focus' for a live, unscripted discussion of Adventist beliefs. With the inclusion of phone calls and emails from viewers, topics ranged from the assurance of salvation we have in Jesus Christ, to the Trinity, our relation to the law as a response to God's grace, the investigative judgment, health and hell. Hosted by Doug Harris of Reachout Trust and Gerard Chrispin of Daylight Christian Prison Trust there was some lively discussion, consensus on some points and disagreement on others.
Following the interest generated by the programme Victor was invited back for a second discussion on the 2 hour programme, 'Simply the Truth', aired on Thursday, 3 December. While the guests had agreed a rough agenda of 6 items, the animated discussion focused primarily on 'the Sabbath' and 'the security of our salvation'.
