Dear Mr. Black:
Re: Illegal Use of Church Name
It has come to our attention that you have been publishing items under the name of the Seventh-day Adventist Church without church approval. We kindly ask that you refrain from doing so.
We understand that you have published documents stating that they are of the "Bebold for Jesus Christ Ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church." We are not aware of any such ministry of our church.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church takes very seriously any use of its name without its authorization. The name is an important identifier of our church to the community and for that reason we cannot sanction its use by those purporting to represent the church when in fact they are not.
We trust that you will abide by our request in not using the terms, "Seventh-day Adventist Church," or "Adventist Church", or "Adventist", in your publications - and that you will destroy those documents in your possession and/or control that you have so labelled.
Thank-you for your anticipated co-operation.
Barry W. Bussey
