Comment on Student reveals true intent of LSUâ€™s biology seminar class by Ruthie Flynn.
May God MIGHTILY bless you and give you His wisdom and courage as you, like David, take on the giant in defense of the living God. Your articulate letter clearly and without malice states the problem and the solution.
In reading the other responses posted on this site, I affirm that you and Martin Luther will have some experiences to share when you meet in Heaven. I was a student at La Sierra College in the 1960’s, and I am so grateful for the spiritual nurturing with which I was blessed at that time. I am deeply disappointed in the position taken by the current biology department and the present leadership. Lines from that immortal hymn of the Christian faith, “Once to Every Man and Nation” come to mind–“Though the cause of evil prosper, yet ’tis truth alone is strong; Though her portion be the scaffold and upon the throne be wrong; Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown, standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above His own.”
You are His own, and He is keeping watch PERSONALLY over you! You and Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, as well as Joseph and Elijah, have stood faithfully for God and the truth in His Word, and God will honor your commitment to Him. I will pray for you and the cause of truth at LSU every day until Jesus comes again.
