Comment on ANN reports on affirmation of creation and FB #6 enhancement by Ron Stone M.D..
Ron,I never wrote that itâ€™s not important but have suggested there may be other issues that warrant greater attention for keeping our young people engaged in and loyal to the church. Iâ€™ve noticed silence on your part in addressing this bigger problem for the church which Iâ€™ve attempted to ask two times in a sincere way. Without making insults or derogatory comments, go back and read some of my earlier posts and try to suggest some solutions with a tone of positive solution finding.
The so-called “bigger problem” is not going to be helped by teaching SDA students “evolution as fact.” So, stop trying to smoke-screen the real issue, which has been presented here.
I have read your previous posts, and I find nothing but excuses and rationales for either side-stepping or shutting down the important issues we are discussing here.

Ron,Itâ€™s easy to get sucked into these kinds of blogs but they usually result in a never ending and useless circle of misinterpretation and character assassination where this â€œdialogueâ€ is at the present time. Iâ€™ve written enough and those reading my posts and your responses will understand why I need to focus my time elsewhere. May God bless you. May others understand your methods better than I do so that when you are evangelizing the non-church attending citizens of our country, which I assume is one of your goals, they will be led to Adventism in spite of the weaknesses both of us have as frail followers of Jesus Christ.
Richard, I don’t see any “character assassinations” going on here. Shane and Sean have done a great job at presenting truthful materials. Maybe you don’t like them, but many of us feel this is very important for our SDA Church to know.
The “non-church attendees”, as well as those SDA’s that attend church, need truthful information as presented by God’s Word.

Richard, Your insinuation that most of your class left the Church because they learned too much adventism is [a bit of a stretch]. What would have helped them? 
Ron,This dialogue is headed no where…
I used quotations in my previous post from your post. Since you don’t think literal creation is important enough to defend, what IS more important?

The reason the LaSierra situation has gone uncorrected so long is that most of our administrators have exactly the sort of political instincts that Dan Jackson has. They are politicians and consensus builders; they want to keep the peace and make the trains run on time. But the circumstances call for men of principle, hard men who are willing to stand for the right â€œthough the heavens fall,â€ i.e., regardless who is offended and loudly complains.
Dave, I agree with you. Jackson’s trying to play on “both teams” is not going to go well for him.
Unfortunately, politics is the “SOP” of many of our SDA officials, Jackson being just one. “Political instincts” are the rule, instead of actually doing what is “right” according to what we know in God’s Word.
Shane Hilde: Think big fish: LSU or the Seventh-day Adventist Church.Graham might not have followed procedure with these men, but I donâ€™t know what the procedure is. Iâ€™ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I donâ€™t know if that applies to administrative positions which are at will employees. If it does apply to them, then it appears the process was not followed.
Trustees book says, in 6,9,F, that the Trustes may “discontinue” virtually anyone working at the university.
Does that mean to “fire” or to “force their resignation? Seems like it does.
GMF: If what has been reported about Jackson is correct it is very troubling. Also, one can only wonder why he was selected as the NAD President.Iâ€™ve seen a thing or two which made me wonder about Jackson but this report, if true, has to be the worst. May the Good Lord help us!
Jackson was selected to replace Don Schneider, who was also very “passive” in his approach to this problem.
Besides telling Wisbey to “love Jesus” Jackson did virtually nothing.

Sean, Great summary and analysis of the current situation. Another good review of this matter is in the Jan-March 2011 Elders Journal. It also goes into the 2004 evaluation and recommendations, as you have quoted.

How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
