Life with Des

Luke Ford writes about a day that opened his eyes. It’s a revelation into the home life of Desmond Ford, controversial Seventh-day Adventist theologian in the 70s and 80s. Funny thing–Des made his name by being all for freedom and the gospel.

First thing that came to mind reading Luke’s account was a talk I heard Des give in California in the 80s. It was a health emphasis, and he was talking about the necessity of getting enough fiber. How to know if you are getting enough? “Ask yourself this–‘Are they sinkers or floaters?'” Des was a fanatic about “health reform,” and removal from the Adventist ministry did not change that.
