Comment on Student reveals true intent of LSUâ€™s biology seminar class by Birger Draget.
Assuming that Louie represents the facts accurately, we have ample reason to weep for our church leadership for their utter failure to act decisively in favor of our stated beliefs. As a Seventh-day Adventist pastor I am not surprised that creation versus evolution has become an issue. However, I am shocked at witnessing such apparent dilly-dallying from a church leadership that claims the messages of Revelation 14:6-12 as a vital part of our church’s mission.
Why do we not hear more from church leaders? Why are not more pastors speaking out? Where are the conference and division leaders across our nation? How come we have not heard from our division leaders? Who among our General Conference leaders, apart from Jan Paulsen, will speak up?
Are we satisfied with hypocrisy and double standards? Are we willing to shove the dirt under the carpet and pretend that the problem goes away? Or, are we hoping that LSU’s board will have a Damascus road experience and â€“ without strong incentives from ‘upper leadership’ â€“ undo decades of gradual perversion of our teaching on creation in their class rooms?
Be always faithful!
Pastor Birger Draget
