Comment on La Sierra University Continues Deceptive Spin Tactics by Karen.
I can’t imagine an educational environment without the discipline of critical thinking. If a six day creation week is “truth”, why are people afraid of exposing youth to all the different concepts? If it’s true it will bear up when compared with other points of view. If we apply the freedom of choice model here, which seems to be particularly important in making a decision about accepting God, why wouldn’t that apply to believing church dogma? If you are only fed church dogma what kind of choice is that? There is no freedom of choice in that, it sounds like a dictatorship. Present all points of view and and give people the freedom of choice, and certainly the “truth” shall prevail.
Pastor Paulson, referring to someone’s opinion as an “absurdity” certainly was not very pastorly. Can you imagine Jesus speaking to someone that way. Defensiveness usually reflects insecurity. It was very disappointing to read unChristlike words from a pastor. Diplomacy is usually the preferred technique used in a dialogue.
Is there a difference between fact and truth?
