Comment on LSU not different than secular universities according to LSU student by Timothy.
I wonder if the professor of New Testament Studies at LSU who speaks in the documentary realizes that the Seventh-day Adventist church already has a list of 28 fundamental beliefs. I was confused why she was joking that she would love to be on the committee to decide which beliefs the faculty at La Sierra would need to be consistent with. The list of fundamental beliefs is already out there for everyone to see. No new committees would be necessary. The fundamental beliefs are voted on at the General Conference not La Sierra.

LSU not different than secular universities according to LSU student
I finally had the “privilege” of seeing this one sided viewpoint of Adventist fundamentalism that was supposedly “neutral”. When the documentary starts out showing a burning World Trade Center while defining fundamentalism and ends with the credits giving thanks for support from Adventist Today and Erv Taylor, it doesn’t leave any opportunity for a balanced viewpoint. All so-called fundamentalists are thrown into one group of people that believe the King James is the only “real” version of the Bible and that salvation comes from works, while at the same time holding to the viewpoint that evolution shouldn’t be taught as fact in our Adventist universities. So if you believe in creationism, you are a religious King James bible thumping nutcase. One member of the audience pointed out that every time the use of “scary” music was utilized in the film, a “fundamental” SDA was speaking while this never occurred when interviewing the other side of the equation. The filmmakers avoided this question multiple times. And to top it off, the panel discussion included a non-Adventist film professor from a secular university just to ensure that we air all of our dirty laundry to those outside the faith.

In defense of ANN, nowhere in the article does it mention that Lee Grismer is an evolutionist. However, that should have been pretty common knowledge by now for those work for ANN.

Dear Adventist High School student,
Which of the 12 disciples graduated from college or even the equivalent of such thing? What grade school did Ellen White graduate from? Since when do you need a college degree to do the Lord’s work?
It’s my understanding that the apostasy is not limited to the Biology Department but also extends to the Religion Department, which every student takes classes from.
Afraid Amran was the father of Moses as none of Noah’s ancestors survived the flood.
“Also would there not have been other people with boats by the time of the flood? Ships can stay at sea with provisions for long periods of time.”
No ship could have survived a flood of that magnitude, not even Noah’s without divine intervention.

Darker and darker grew the heavens, and faster came the falling rain. The beasts were roaming about in the wildest terror, and their discordant cries seemed to moan out their own destiny and the fate of man. Then “the fountains of the great deep” were “broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” Water appeared to come from the clouds in mighty cataracts. Rivers broke away from their boundaries, and overflowed the valleys. Jets of water burst from the earth with indescribable force, throwing massive rocks hundreds of feet into the air, and these, in falling, buried themselves deep in the ground…
The massive ark trembled in every fiber as it was beaten by the merciless winds and flung from billow to billow. The cries of the beasts within expressed their fear and pain. But amid the warring elements it continued to ride safely. Angels that excel in strength were commissioned to preserve it.
