Comment on Jay Gallimore comments on evolution conflict by Ron Stone M.D..
Mr. Stone,I don’t understand your usage of the terms “liberal” and “fundamentalist”.Believe me, if you followed everything the Bible says-you would be out stoning the homosexuals, killing the witches, etc…Everyone pick and chooses passages from the Bible.You can’t be 100% objective about it, because the moment you read it you already are interperting it in your own unique way. (Quote)
Ricky, As many before me have explained, IF we lived in a theocracy, with God as leader, this is just what God has said He would require. However, we don’t live in such a world. I do not decide what punishments are appropriate for transgressions against mans’ laws or God’s law. Neither do any churches or church members, except as we participate in any democratic voting procedures.
So, believing the bible and stoning people for various “crimes” are separate issues. We DO stone (kill) some people for some violent crimes in some states, however. Based on what? Man’s interpretation of the crime’s appropriate punishment. In some cases, a small fine, sometimes imprisonment, and some cases someone or group has decided death.
So, Ricky, when God our leader, HE decides what punishment is required according to His law. When Jesus returns (or do you believe in this?) and God’s Law is once again supreme, that’s what will happen again. Plainly spelled out in the bible.
So, Ricky, I don’t “believe” you at all!

Jay Gallimore comments on evolution conflict
@Lee Folkman, Your post is great, but Ricky does not believe the bible is necessarily inspired, which, in liberal language means “not inspired” or he will himself decide and choose which parts he wants to believe are inspired.
So, using quotes from the bible are of little to no help for him. Right, Ricky?
Jay Gallimore comments on evolution conflict
I’m glad President Gallimore has the backbone to use the words “mocked and abused” to plainly state how President Wilson’s words have been and are being criticized by the “self-styled progressive elements in our Church” including AT, Spectrum, LSU, and the SECC.
“Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.'” (Matthew 22:29)
Great quote Lee, However, as you probably realize, liberals have their own “interpretation” of most scripture. So, if it doesn’t fit their agenda, they just “reinterpret” it!

Faith: Prof Kent:How do you figure that this site keeps biology profs with integrity out of LSU? Any professor that is following the Bible, supporting creation, and the SDA church has nothing to hide and nothing to fear.When you say “quality” applicants, just how do you judge their credentials?As far as I am concerned, it is far more important that these professors have a firm grasp on the teachings of creation and the teachings of the Bible than any credentials the world can offer. If that had been the criteria used as a guideline for hiring, we wouldn’t be in this mess now. And that goes for all our SDA institutions.
I agree, Faith. However, the type of leadership (Guy,Geraty,and Wisbey)LSU has had over the past two decades shows why we have evolutionists teaching “evolution as fact” at LSU and those supporting any type of creationism being intimidated, both students, and I would suspect faculty as well.
Does the LSU Board even care about this deterioration in our biblical beliefs. Well, their inaction, ineptitude, and apathy in finding any solutions tell me they don’t, at least the majority who control the Board.

BTW, If you’re a beer or ale drinker, the best are the “darker” and more “robust” varieties, as these have more antioxidants and phytochemical.
Or, you could just eat some oatmeal, barley, or similar whole grain!
I have much more knowledge of PUC, and it has as many or more problems as LSU, although these have been, so far, ignored by most. PUC thrives on its “high ratings” from U.S. News and World Report, etc. But, it would get much lower ratings if someone knowledgeable from an SDA rating agency actually did a thorough investigation of the school.
Adventist kid: @Ron Stone M.D.:Continue to believe that if you want. Not a scientific sample to say the least, but I just asked roughly 80 high school graduates from this year whether they chose which school they were going to or if their parents did. I didn’t even get ten who said their parents limited their choices or prevented them from going to their first choice.
I’ll continue to believe what I actually see and hear, not some biased opinion from you.
Do you know this or just a guess? I certainly hope they’re gone from LSU completely!
