SILVER SPRING, Md. — Playgrounds at Adventist schools, churches and residential facilities have instituted a formal ban on backsliding.
The daredevil move which the denomination defined as “abandoning all you’ve learned and hurtling down a slide backwards,” has been described as a “reckless, foolhardy abandonment of common sense playground basics.”
GC spokesperson, Vilken Våghals said that backsliding has never been considered to be a good idea by the denomination.
He claimed that the early Adventist Church had, in its foresight, discouraged the risky move before the modern playground slide had even been invented.
Våghals warned that those who persist in their backsliding ways tend to hit rock bottom after a brief adrenaline ride down a very slippery slope.
