Comment on Lawrence Geraty, Fritz Guy, and the Framing of Fundamental Belief #6 by Ron D Henderson.
Gentlemen, ladies, I must thank Shane and Sean for the research on FB#6. Today as I plied the streets on pastoral duties I was listening to my electronic Bible on my iPhone. The book was Jeremiah, the last few chapters.
I encourage all of you to listen to the book read. God will work wonders for you. I can even now hear Jeremiah plead with the people, king and courtiers, to only follow the word of the Lord and their lives will be saved. They refused, many died. Friends, so is it with the church today. God has given us a voice, a woman’s voice at that, calling us back to a ‘thus saith the Lord.’ Loud and clear is the clarion call to hold steadfastly to the Written Word.
But many in the church, leaders and others, like the people of Jeremiah’s day, refuse to submit to the plain, simple, thus saith the Word of the Lord. And even more sadly, the others left seem paralyzed as to what to do next! Their inaction is fodder for the rebellious. But all is not gloom, my friends.
In Jeremiah we read where he is commanded to buy a parcel of land in Judah as a guarantor, a Divine pledge and promise that Judah and Benjamin will be inhabited again! God will not forsake forever; His mercies are everlasting! By the voice of the prophetess he assures us that this church may appear to fall but it will not!
God will step in and rectify matters; and those that are on board will be carried safely into harbour! We are repeating the steps that Israel trod, as predicted. But always remember, it was by a prophet that God delivered his people of old and it is by another delicate prophet that God is delivering his present church.
Let’s do what we can to ‘stay the course’ while indeed showing clarity to errors, and at the same time exposing, promoting, and exalting the truth as it is in the Word. We have nothing to fear for the future except as we forget the way the Lord has lead us, and his teaching in our past history.
God bless you my friends and enjoy his presence in his special memorial of his fiat creation.

Scientists and the Temptation to Bias Results
This is so sad but not surprising. One can add to this article the intimidation at universities of creationists, and even the threat of not graduating those who hold creationist world views. And even the governments’ educational systems support these frauds one way or the other. I guess the devil must do his work of obfuscation and deceit. Unfortunately some of humanity will learn the truth too late.
Believing the Disproven – An Adventure in Science
Excellent article! However this is not unique or strange for the truth presenters. How many times in the Bible we read of the ‘truthers’ accommodating error? Legion; just check the record of the kings of Israel and Judea. Did not our mother inherit that from satan in the Garden under the forbidden tree? Check how she evangelized her husband, our father! But then again, God had and still has His remnant!! Good to know that. Evolution? Just open satan’s box of strategies for planet earth and see some of His plans!
Ted Wilson: No Room for Evolution as Truth in Adventist Schools
I am all for accountability. If these teachers are not accountable for upholding our biblical teachings we may as well close up shop for anything goes! But that is not our practice. We are duty bound to promote and subscribe to our teachings. Those who do not do so or cannot do so must be relieved of their duties.  We endanger our students when we teach falsehood in our science classes. The UK recognized the importance of accountability to its false science in schools and banned creation in government supported schools. Are the Gentiles wiser than the children of God? Elder Wilson must now put teeth to his words by calling all our institutions to accountability or the GC will have to see that they do…
Dr. Nick Matzke Explains the Evolution of Complexity
I find it quite amusing how we argue evolution with a straight face and are so hypothetical, philosophical, and imaginary. It’s not what could be or what should be. It’s actually what is! When we take the ‘what is’ and run it backwards to the earliest beginnings we find that there is no difference between what is and what was. The evolutionary concept of ‘evolving’ is very hard to come by. We do not see it. And what we see is in itself a complete whole and not an evolutionary misfit. For the religion of evolution to survive it has to exercises humongous faith and story telling but without any specimen and its generation before them. For creationists there is only one model and that is the Genesis account. And by the Genesis account I mean a literal acceptance of Genesis and all support passages through out the Scriptures. I do not refer to ‘other’ creation accounts that would neuter the Genesis narration. These are akin to the varied evolutionists’ accounts of origins. The ‘debate’ was like watching two individuals debate the origin of a motor car parked in front of them. Each had his imagination, philosophy, and supposition. Except if the car could talk it would say, first, you both were not there and so are badly off track. Secondly, it would say, I was made by someone with intelligence, humor, and skill. Of course for the evolutionist to say that would give the game away and their religion would become extinct! One day it will, believe it or not!
The Adventist Accrediting Association is Still Reviewing LSU
Let us not forget that God is in charge of this work and of his church. And yes, we do suffer for our negligence, procrastination and compromise. But God is still in charge. If the men at the helm of his church on earth are delinquent and refuse to rock the boat, then they will be removed in His good time. In the mean while we must be faithful and do all in our power to correct the situation in our sphere of control, regardless of the ‘feelings’ of the ‘peace, peace’ lovers in the church.
