How do we translate Adventism?

How do we translate Adventism?

Matt Lucio is a pastor, nerd culture enthusiast and all-round funny guy, but he is best known for being the man behind The Adventist History Podcast. In this episode Dave and Matt (Our Matt) sit down and have a great conversation about Matt Lucio’s experience and what others can to to help translate adventism into something that is accessible and digestible by our modern culture.

5MDI – The Worship Style Controversy

5MDI – The Worship Style Controversy

Worship style is an issue that has caused so many schisms in local churches. In this episode we look at what legitimate worship looks like and talk about the divide between traditional and contemporary worship styles.

5MDI-The Godhead Controversy

5MDI-The Godhead Controversy

This is the second part of our 5 part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. Godhead is an issue that has ended friendships, split churches and caused much friction for decades and decades, this is our attempt to look at scripture from our point of view and present a strategy for when we cant agree.

In heaven you are going to do what!?

In heaven you are going to do what!?

We all assume heaven is our goal but we so rarely talk about it, in this episode we take a peek into heaven using the bible and a fair dose of sanctified imagination. Tell us in the comments what you look forward to most about heaven.

5MDI – The Womens Ordination Controversy

5MDI – The Womens Ordination Controversy

This is the final part of our five part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. Women's Ordination is one of the most polarising issues in recent church history. It has been debated at all levels of the organisation and in this issue we attempt to cover in...

5MDI – The Perfection Controversy

5MDI – The Perfection Controversy

This is the third part of our five-part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. This issue of perfection, or perhaps more accurately, the nature and origin of our perfection. This has generated large-scale debate for a long time, both parties, either rightly or wrongly feel condemned by the other, so it is a difficult issue for most to speak dispassionately about, but that is what we are attempting to do today.

5MDI – The Nature of Christ

5MDI – The Nature of Christ

This is the first of a 5 part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. The Nature of Christ is one that seems to come up over and over again, so it is a fitting place to start!

Who are we?


Ben is our resident history expert, especially when it comes to reformation history. He is definitely the quiet analyst of our group. He brings an intellectual rigour that is insightful and unique.


Dave is a strong thinker, with a great deal of experience behind him. He has a great gift for expressing truth in a relational way that allows you to see the big picture.


Luke is the direction setting structurer of our group. Providing the broad knowledge, mental stability and enthusiastic expression that makes the conversation dynamic. Luke is a valuable asset at our table.


Mat, another history buff, has an uncanny ability to express complex ideas in easy-to-understand sound-bites. However his biggest contribution to the group is his energy. He keeps us all motivated and adds loads of authenticity.


Nathanael, although quietly spoken has a beautiful depth to his thinking and an excellent talent for using object lessons to really drive his point home. On top of that, he is also our Audio Engineer, talk about multi-skilled!

What are we doing?

We are just five guys from a regional town in Australia, with everyday jobs, everyday lives with one big thing in common. We love Jesus.

The Method

Inspired by the guys over at Lightbearers we decided to simply sit around a table and record the spiritual conversations we were already having in the hope that they would encourage others to do the same.
