Catholic Adventism?

One final remark on Bacchiocchi’s latest newsletter:

What this means to me is that though I am an Italian by birth and upbringing, I must evaluate people, not from my own Italian racial and cultural perspective, but from Christ’s perspective. I must learn to relegate to a secondary level my Italian identity, because whatever is admirable in my culture, it is only a temporary distinction which has no saving value.

That is very much a Catholic principle (Catholic means universal) for which Catholicism has, at times, been criticised by patriotic American Protestants. It’s good to see that Bacchiocchi, and Adventist leaders at the General Conference, have recognised the truth in the Catholic position.
