Comment on The Metamorphosis of La Sierra University: an eye-witness account by Ron Stone M.D..
ALL who reject God as Creator of the literal six-day creation week will eventually reject the seventh-day sabbath as the day to worship our Creator. It is Satan’s clever plan to get humans to accept his spurious day of worship, thereby deceiving millions.
JG, I agree with you 100% However, if you’ve ever listened to secular liberal SDA’s, they have a rationale for everything, including why one can believe in Darwinian evolution and still believe that God “made” the Sabbath Day.
One of their rationales is that all that Genesis stuff is just “allegory.” Just a “fairy tale” story to illustrate a “principle” and not actually reality. “Adam” is just mankind in general. “Days” are just long periods of time. “Satan” is just your evil imagination.
Evidently, Jesus and all the rest of the biblical characters were fooled and confused because they seem to believe Genesis was real!

@Bill Sorensen: The thought has crossed my mind to branch out, but at this point in time I think any effort to address anything else would water down the affect of Educate Truth.
I agree with you Shane. Although I am one who emphasizes that there are many other issues, we need to take care of this problem first. And, by “take care of” I mean actually DO something, not “adjust” as Graham and his Board have tried and failed at already.

Kevin, The story you related may be true, but it would not make any liberal in our Church change one bit. Why? Well, even Ellen White may have been “right” on some issues. That doesn’t mean what ever else she said was true, accurate, or in any way helpful to our postmodern world.
If you think I’m nuts, then go over to Spectrum or AT and read some of the articles and posts accompanying them.
Do other SDA schools teach like LSU? If so, which ones? What other bible issues are confronting the church today besides evolution? Bill Sorensen
Bill, PUC has many problems similar to LSU, but I don’t think evolution is a major one. I have three relatives, two majoring in science, who say that “evolution as fact” is NOT taught there.

Faith: Prof Kent:How do you figure that this site keeps biology profs with integrity out of LSU? Any professor that is following the Bible, supporting creation, and the SDA church has nothing to hide and nothing to fear.When you say “quality” applicants, just how do you judge their credentials?As far as I am concerned, it is far more important that these professors have a firm grasp on the teachings of creation and the teachings of the Bible than any credentials the world can offer. If that had been the criteria used as a guideline for hiring, we wouldn’t be in this mess now. And that goes for all our SDA institutions.
I agree, Faith. However, the type of leadership (Guy,Geraty,and Wisbey)LSU has had over the past two decades shows why we have evolutionists teaching “evolution as fact” at LSU and those supporting any type of creationism being intimidated, both students, and I would suspect faculty as well.
Does the LSU Board even care about this deterioration in our biblical beliefs. Well, their inaction, ineptitude, and apathy in finding any solutions tell me they don’t, at least the majority who control the Board.
Private Recorded Conversation Prompts La Sierra Resignations
BTW, If you’re a beer or ale drinker, the best are the “darker” and more “robust” varieties, as these have more antioxidants and phytochemical.
Or, you could just eat some oatmeal, barley, or similar whole grain!
I have much more knowledge of PUC, and it has as many or more problems as LSU, although these have been, so far, ignored by most. PUC thrives on its “high ratings” from U.S. News and World Report, etc. But, it would get much lower ratings if someone knowledgeable from an SDA rating agency actually did a thorough investigation of the school.
Adventist kid: @Ron Stone M.D.:Continue to believe that if you want. Not a scientific sample to say the least, but I just asked roughly 80 high school graduates from this year whether they chose which school they were going to or if their parents did. I didn’t even get ten who said their parents limited their choices or prevented them from going to their first choice.
I’ll continue to believe what I actually see and hear, not some biased opinion from you.
Do you know this or just a guess? I certainly hope they’re gone from LSU completely!
