Comment on LSU student petition criticizes curriculum by Ron Stone M.D..
I would be interested if the LSU Board ever got this letter and, if so, did they ever evaluate or investigate the alleged problems. Same for the Pacific Union Conference leadership.

Brian Holland: â€œIf a worldly influence is to bear sway in our school, then sell it out to worldlings, and let them take the entire control; and those who have invested their means in that institution will establish another school, to be conducted, not upon the plan of popular schools nor according to the desires of principal and teachers, but upon the plan which God has specified.â€ â€” Counsels to Parents, Teachers and Students p. 88.3
This “sell out” is actually happening today, in a very SLOW manner. Look at how LSU has become almost a secular institution, right before our very eyes!
The idea that there are “many ways” to God (Oprah has said a “million”) is totally opposite to what Jesus said, and is completely unbiblical. The fact that Geraty endorses such as view, and states that the things LSU teaches are “not bible study!” (They certainly aren’t!)
When you come to LSU, you gotta “grow up” and give up your previous “Sunday school” stuff (?)
And this guy was appointed to “lead” LSU! Can you understand WHY we have the problems at LSU?
LSU student petition criticizes curriculum
Thanks for bringing this item back into our memories. As we see, the “problems” at LSU have a LONG history, going back to when LSU became “independent.”
Look who has led this place–Fritz Guy, Lawrence Geraty, and now Randall Wisbey! All liberal, progressives whose “world view” is to remake the SDA Church, starting with LSU into a secular, humanistic wordly institution.
Is it any wonder we see LSU being led down the secular, humanistic “primrose path?!”
Iâ€™m not sure the church listened to EGW in her day very well either.But we have been warned that the last work of Satan would be to make the Testimonies of none effect.(And I would say, the Bible as well).
Warren, I said “many more” at least here in California. I applaud the Alaska Conference and its President for taking a stand for God’s Truth. You’re correct that the Testimonies are practically “of none effect” in many areas in the Pacific Union Conference, either totally or simply through routine “lip service” references to them.

The reason the LaSierra situation has gone uncorrected so long is that most of our administrators have exactly the sort of political instincts that Dan Jackson has. They are politicians and consensus builders; they want to keep the peace and make the trains run on time. But the circumstances call for men of principle, hard men who are willing to stand for the right â€œthough the heavens fall,â€ i.e., regardless who is offended and loudly complains.
Dave, I agree with you. Jackson’s trying to play on “both teams” is not going to go well for him.
Unfortunately, politics is the “SOP” of many of our SDA officials, Jackson being just one. “Political instincts” are the rule, instead of actually doing what is “right” according to what we know in God’s Word.
Shane Hilde: Think big fish: LSU or the Seventh-day Adventist Church.Graham might not have followed procedure with these men, but I donâ€™t know what the procedure is. Iâ€™ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I donâ€™t know if that applies to administrative positions which are at will employees. If it does apply to them, then it appears the process was not followed.
Trustees book says, in 6,9,F, that the Trustes may “discontinue” virtually anyone working at the university.
Does that mean to “fire” or to “force their resignation? Seems like it does.
GMF: If what has been reported about Jackson is correct it is very troubling. Also, one can only wonder why he was selected as the NAD President.Iâ€™ve seen a thing or two which made me wonder about Jackson but this report, if true, has to be the worst. May the Good Lord help us!
Jackson was selected to replace Don Schneider, who was also very “passive” in his approach to this problem.
Besides telling Wisbey to “love Jesus” Jackson did virtually nothing.

Sean, Great summary and analysis of the current situation. Another good review of this matter is in the Jan-March 2011 Elders Journal. It also goes into the 2004 evaluation and recommendations, as you have quoted.

How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
