Comment on Student reveals true intent of LSUâ€™s biology seminar class by Bob Nobuhara.
Perhaps you have come to LSU for such a time as this…! I too have seen the inaccuracies that are being taught when it comes to biological origins there at LSU.
To say that Creation week was not literal and “required thousands upon thousands of years, strikes directly at the foundation of the fourth commandment. It represents the Creator as commanding men to observe the week of literal days in commemoration of vast, indefinite periods. This is unlike His method of dealing with His creatures. It makes indefinite and obscure that which He has made very plain. It is infidelity in its most insidious and hence most dangerous form; its real character is so disguised that it is held and taught by many who profess to believe the Bible.”
Ellen White, The Literal Week, Patriarchs and Prophets, chapter 9.
I teach biological sciences here at Monterey Bay Academy and ready my students for such a time as this…! We need men and women who will call sin by its right name! Who will not bow down to the pressures of society or numbers but will remain true to the straight and narrow. I encourage you to stand up for the foundational beliefs of our church but more importantly for the Biblical Truth that has been established since the beginning of the world.
The geological evidence that evolutionists site as evidence for macroevolution does not show anything but mass extinction…! Complexity of life in the fossil record does not follow a set pattern within the layers but can be found scattered throughout the layers of rock strata. Example: Cambrian Explosion.
I spoke at the Faith Seminar at Glacier View Ranch a number of years ago and was surprised by the minority of those presenting that believed in a literal 6 day Creation Week. It is my desire and goal to have my students not be mere reflectors of other men’s / women’s thoughts but to seek the Truth for themselves! I want them to become well established in the Faith so that when the winds of theories and ideologies contrary to the Scriptures is placed before them, that they will answer by, “Thus Saith the Lord, and or It is written…”, just as Jesus defended the pillars of his Faith on the Word of God when he was tempted in the wilderness…
My prayers are with you and your family..!
May the Lord continue to use you there at LSU.
