LSU student: ‘Apostates or Apostles’?
@Concerned Adventist: God has given us all the gift of reason, and when we allow the Holy Spirit to lead our reason we can come to an understanding of truth. This is the mechanism by which we understand the Bible to be true and reliable. God will provide us the evidence we need to rest our faith. Notice what Ellen White says in Steps to Christ page 105:

God never asks us to believe, without giving sufficient evidence upon which to base our faith. His existence, His character, the truthfulness of His word, are all established by testimony that appeals to our reason; and this testimony is abundant. Yet God has never removed the possibility of doubt. Our faith must rest upon evidence, not demonstration. Those who wish to doubt will have opportunity; while those who really desire to know the truth will find plenty of evidence on which to rest their faith.

There are plenty of examples in the Bible where God gives evidence of his word. Yes, faith does come from God’s Word, but before a person can come to the place in their life where they believe that, they must have good reason to believe. God doesn’t ask us to believe in something for no reason at all.

LSU student: ‘Apostates or Apostles’?
This only 4% biz is shear non-sense. According to their enrollment at the beginning of the year (2,098) that means only 84 students take general biology or are biology majors?

That’s boloney. When I took general biology there were at least that number just in my class. It had to be in a stadium seating classroom to fit everyone. I could be wrong on this but I think general biology is a required GE course. I was an English major and I had to take it.

Don’t take everything LSU PR spits out hook line and sinker.

Have you been over at Spectrum? You’ll find enough over there to qualify for ridicule.

Private Recorded Conversation Prompts La Sierra Resignations

Ron&#32Stone&#32M&#46D&#46: then he “accidentally” recorded the private meeting, right?

That’s exactly right. He must have not bothered to play it back. I think the meeting was a couple hours according to the LSU news release. But basically he didn’t know he had recorded him and the others and then posted it without checking his recording.

Eddie: Doesn’t LSU’s administration deserve at least a little bit of credit?

I think so. There are some very dedicated individuals on the board.I have no doubt they’re doing everything they can to address this issue.

Blasphemy of a Different Kind
@Ron Stone M.D.: I agree. LSU has not been a shining light for our church. That’s unfortunate. That might be the case for other schools as well.

Former board member never talked with biology faculty
@Alexander Carpenter: I would readily agree since Educate Truth supports the biblical account of creation and disagrees with the handling of the topic in the biology department. This was a political move by Wisbey to gain power on the board. He now has three less who oppose him.

Former board member never talked with biology faculty
@David Read: Board members and even former board members are not allowed to discuss what has happened in board meetings. The only thing I confirmed with Tooma was whether she had conversed with the biology faculty and she made it very clear she never had. She was only presented with the joint statement and wanted to support it. This statement was seen as a big step for the biology department because Wisbey had been keeping them silent for over two years and they were now making constructive advances to dialogue with the church. I disagree with what they said, but I think it’s great their talking now. I suspect Wisbey isn’t happy with the biology department. It wouldn’t make any sense for him to only be upset with the board members since he allegedly embraces what they are doing. Doubtful though given his reaction and double standard.
