By Kay Campbell Faith and Values Editor Huntsville Times With the earth itself seeming to groan under the shakings, both from war and disaster, that are signs of the last days, Elder Ted N.C. Wilson, president of the nearly 17 million-member Seventh-day Adventist Church, called worshipers Saturday to a closer relationship with Jesus. "We must give ourselves entirely to Christ in this critical time in Earth's history with the world collapsing around us," Wilson preached to about 2,000 worshipers during the regular Sabbath worship at Oakwood University Seventh-day Adventist Church. "When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in his church, then he will come," Wilson said, quoting from the writings of Ellen G. White, a 19th century visionary and one of the founders of the denomination. Wilson's nearly hour-long sermon was packed with references to White and to scripture from throughout the Bible. Many of the passages and verses he used were so familiar that some in the congregation could quote them along with him.
