Comment on Dr. Geraty clarifies his “Challenge” to literal 6-day creationism by Eliane Gardner.
Sandy Bandelin, you are right on point, the bible does say the evening and the morning are the first day … further is says; And God said Let there be lights in the firmaments of the heaven to divide the day from the night;and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years; So then is not a 24 hour day a mute issue? No matter how many hours in a day; the evening and the morning, light and dark mark the days.
I DO NOT GET IT DR. GERATY. I have studied science, Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Biology, Chemistry, Physics; AIN’T no way but GOD. YES, i said AIN’T!!! Even if I had not studied, the BIBLE says…
These have got to be the last days the very ELECT are being deceived and are declivitous. Well, we need to continue to PRAY for ourselves and each other and ASK GOD to lead us and keep us focused on the bible pointing to heaven and eternal life.

Dr. Geraty clarifies his “Challenge” to literal 6-day creationism
Sandy is right on point,I concur:
I did not know the bible made reference to a day being 24 hour. The reference was made to the evening and the morning as the first day ..; But is also references Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night and let them be for signs, and for seasons and for days, and years. So then today in todays science how many hours is between an evening and a morning and day and night? Anywhere in the world? Then what is the argument about a 24 hour day. Mute issue to me. I am praying that GOD HELPS THOSE UNBELIEVERS and keeps those of us who wish to follow the bible strong. These are the last days and remember the very elect will be deceived.

La Sierra and Battle Creek College
Ladies and Gents,
Certainly thank you for your kind words and kind position as well as your global perspective on the issue.
However, just a few questions here; what is the Seventh Day Adventist Standard on Creation vs. Evolution? Then what is La Sierra chartered position as an educational institution? Is it Seventh -Day Adventist or Catholic or State run or Baptist?
A standard is a standard rather evidenced based or not. Tenets of SDA beliefs recognize Creation as a belief. Keeping that in mind what in the world is a Seventh -Day Adventist school doing teaching evolution. Evolution is contrary to our beliefs.
These high-level discussions are wonderful but the bottom line is they are causing consternation.
Parents should not have to pay $18,000 +yearly to get a SDA Christian education, which includes evolution. Oh by the way since we pay tithe and offerings â€œweâ€ support these institutions as well and should have a say in what is taught.
Young developing, inquiring minds are easily enough confused. They need to be given the basic tools to survive life turmoil and questioning of the fundamental beliefs such as Creation. In life, they will be faced with evolution theories without a doubt but with the right information on Creation they can combat the forces and theories that can lead to agnosticism, atheistic belief and/or any other views. They do not need to learn about evolution in our schools.
Further, the goal of Christian education I thought was to prepare youths for the kingdom as well as teaching them to exemplify the character of Christ through thoughts, deeds and actions. In the work place, it is hard enough to maintain your personal identity more less your Christian identity. You will find in politics, health care, education to name a few disciplines all kinds of good and evil occur; but the formal preparation is what keeps one grounded in life.
Finally, I cannot stress it enough young minds need tools to combat the forces of foolishness in the world. The aberrances of life will magically appear but what is taught in our schools last a lifetime. â€œLearning is for a lifetimeâ€. Teach the standards, the basic bible principles and the application of it; guaranteed a product that represents a SDA Christian anticipating a soon coming Lord to an ever growing world.
New Adventist president envisions a church marked by prayer, revival
Pastor Wilson is indeed a breath of fresh air and I am glad for his leadership and heaven bound direction. Let’s get back to the bible and following Christ as well as leading others to Christ as we should.
We need to get behind and beside our president Wilson and take ourselves out of the equation. It’s about salvation his, yours, mine and the entire worlds’.
