Adventism
Seventh-day Adventist Reform Movement
When organized on the heels of the American Civil War, the Seventh-day Adventists had a strong commitment to pacifism. Several generations later, that commitment began to slip and members were allowed to participate in World War I. This change of policy caused a break in fellowship, primarily in Europe, when a number of members who still adhered to the pacifist position were unable to affect a return to the church's traditional position. In 1925, they founded the Seventh-day Adventist Reform Movement.
