Comment on Video show LSU undermining church doctrine by Ron D Henderson.
Jonathan Taylor, it is absolutely ridiculous to think that any video or recorded lecture is the property of teachers! I have taught in our colleges myself; students have taped me several times instead of writing down notes. When they get home they can review their taped lectures. If a professor speaks falsehood in class and it is videoed or taped then he the teacher should be able to defend his lecture or ‘fess up’ to his error. If schools now-a-days prohibit such technology that is a different matter; but there has to be good reasons why they prohibit such; I believe that this is the practice in some or our schools already, however. Do you know how many cameras are posted on every block in many cities? Everything we do and say can be recorded. And we cannot do a thing about it! why should teachers be afraid of being recorded? If students take things out of context and scandal a teacher, then there are the ‘courts’ to take the misdemeanour to to address the matter. To say that I cannot share the contents of my class with strangers is false. What happens when I write verbatim a teacher’s lecture, can I share this with others? I agree that we must be honest and abide by the consequences of scandalizing another person, however. Let’s be wise as students and equally wise and dedicated to the Church’s teachings as teachers.

I must say that Gerald Brown falls into the trap of misapplying Scripture over interpretation of the Hebrew or Greek. As Byron pointed out, there is sufficient evidence to support that the six days creation apply to earth even if verse one can apply to God’s creation of other worlds through out the universe.
Remember this folks, English or any other language is the same. You can misapply any word in any language. ‘Sky’ in English could mean anything literally or philosophically. The context determines where to go. However, the issue here is not the interpretation of the Hebrew; the Hebrew is clear enough for those who know it or have learnt it. The issue we are looking at is whether the earth was created in six literal days. We are not speaking about the whole universe nor where God lives, we are speaking about earth’s creation. The other parts of the universe were also created by God, that’s clear, but that’s not our issue.
Let’s not pick on language to stray from the text. The text, the Bible, is clear that God created in six literal days and not via the nonsensical vehicle of evolution-an impossibility. While I agree that our universities are for higher learning, whatever that may mean, I certainly believe that higher learning is not to lead where Eve went in the Garden. Higher learning is never at anytime to supersede the Bible. The Bible is to be the foundation of all knowledge.
We test the university’s quality by the way it relates to the Bible, not the other way round. Any university of ours that belittles or rejects the Bible is to be itself rejected and closed. It may run as a secular school teaching its sophistry, but not as an SDA school. It is time that our leaders (including myself as a pastor) take a decided stand and shut down the classes that promote erroneous teachings; and if need be, as we are counseled in 5T, we sell these institutions and started a fresh with dedicated men and women as instructors. Do not give up in your relationship with God, folks; all this too shall pass away. The devil has to do his dirty tricks, but remember he, like us, is a creature created by God; he is a renegade and seeks to make humans so too, but his end will soon come. Take care.

This is Greek evolutionary philosophy at it’s highest! We cannot allow such false, divisive teachings to be taught at our institutions. This is a deliberate plan to subvert our SDAs beliefs and integrate us with the secular, mainline, non-biblical Christian churches. We must continue to speak up and expose this false endeavour. Thanks, Shane. Those that lie and attempt to cover up these erroneous teachings are just as guilty as the promoters of this falsehood. I will continue to preach out and make my voice heard against such errors in our church. Let us continue to do our part in exposing the errors and God will certainly do his part.

Scientists and the Temptation to Bias Results
This is so sad but not surprising. One can add to this article the intimidation at universities of creationists, and even the threat of not graduating those who hold creationist world views. And even the governments’ educational systems support these frauds one way or the other. I guess the devil must do his work of obfuscation and deceit. Unfortunately some of humanity will learn the truth too late.
Believing the Disproven – An Adventure in Science
Excellent article! However this is not unique or strange for the truth presenters. How many times in the Bible we read of the ‘truthers’ accommodating error? Legion; just check the record of the kings of Israel and Judea. Did not our mother inherit that from satan in the Garden under the forbidden tree? Check how she evangelized her husband, our father! But then again, God had and still has His remnant!! Good to know that. Evolution? Just open satan’s box of strategies for planet earth and see some of His plans!
Ted Wilson: No Room for Evolution as Truth in Adventist Schools
I am all for accountability. If these teachers are not accountable for upholding our biblical teachings we may as well close up shop for anything goes! But that is not our practice. We are duty bound to promote and subscribe to our teachings. Those who do not do so or cannot do so must be relieved of their duties.  We endanger our students when we teach falsehood in our science classes. The UK recognized the importance of accountability to its false science in schools and banned creation in government supported schools. Are the Gentiles wiser than the children of God? Elder Wilson must now put teeth to his words by calling all our institutions to accountability or the GC will have to see that they do…
Dr. Nick Matzke Explains the Evolution of Complexity
I find it quite amusing how we argue evolution with a straight face and are so hypothetical, philosophical, and imaginary. It’s not what could be or what should be. It’s actually what is! When we take the ‘what is’ and run it backwards to the earliest beginnings we find that there is no difference between what is and what was. The evolutionary concept of ‘evolving’ is very hard to come by. We do not see it. And what we see is in itself a complete whole and not an evolutionary misfit. For the religion of evolution to survive it has to exercises humongous faith and story telling but without any specimen and its generation before them. For creationists there is only one model and that is the Genesis account. And by the Genesis account I mean a literal acceptance of Genesis and all support passages through out the Scriptures. I do not refer to ‘other’ creation accounts that would neuter the Genesis narration. These are akin to the varied evolutionists’ accounts of origins. The ‘debate’ was like watching two individuals debate the origin of a motor car parked in front of them. Each had his imagination, philosophy, and supposition. Except if the car could talk it would say, first, you both were not there and so are badly off track. Secondly, it would say, I was made by someone with intelligence, humor, and skill. Of course for the evolutionist to say that would give the game away and their religion would become extinct! One day it will, believe it or not!
The Adventist Accrediting Association is Still Reviewing LSU
Let us not forget that God is in charge of this work and of his church. And yes, we do suffer for our negligence, procrastination and compromise. But God is still in charge. If the men at the helm of his church on earth are delinquent and refuse to rock the boat, then they will be removed in His good time. In the mean while we must be faithful and do all in our power to correct the situation in our sphere of control, regardless of the ‘feelings’ of the ‘peace, peace’ lovers in the church.
