Comment on Transcript of Self-Recorded “LSU-4” Conversation Uploaded to the Riverside Superior Court Website by Gene Fortner.
Sounds like overhearing a conversation among friends at a local bar.
What I don’t understand is their lack of knowledge about how shakey the ToE is.
It would seem to me that it would not be very difficult to put together a seminar on Genesis from a Biblical POV noting textual evidence for YEC and YLC. Perhaps include what the ramifications of a non-literal interpretation means to SDA doctrine. Plenty of professional sources out there.
The same with biological evolution. State what is verifiable and what is conjecture and why. Plenty of peer reviewed sources available.
I am a retired systems engineer and not a teacher so what I think would be a simple task may not be.

“The ONLY DEFINITION FOR SIN that we have in the Bible is that it is the transgression of the law… IT CONDEMNS EVERY SIN, AND REQUIRES EVERY VIRTUE.” E.G. White, ST, March 3, 1890 par. 3.
If it is a sin to possess a fallen nature then there must be a law against it. Has God given a law forbidding anyone from being conceived with a fallen human nature? If there ever was a law that was impossible to keep, this would be it, for how could one choose not to violate it before one existed?!
No statement was necessary.
In fact I consider it thoughtless.

Sin is transgression of the law.
Where does it say being born is a sin?
