Comment on LSU Board news release and actions by Carol.

I totally agree with the observations thus made of these documents published by the LSU Board of Trustees!

There have been recent articles published bemoaning the fact that although there is an increasing SDA church membership there is a decreasing support for SDA education. There are studies/committees appointed to study why and how this “problem” can be rectified.

My husband and I would support Adventist education whole heartedly if we could be assured that the experience our children received could be one that prepared them to be trusted citizens in the government of heaven!

Of interest, we note that a K-8 public school is planning to use the Apologia Science series, by Dr. Jay Wile, for its science curriculum next school year! The institutions of this world will sooner leave the institutions of the church behind in matters of promoting truth filled science!
Yet we will keep praying and seeking to lift up the standard of righteousness in our local congregations that we be not partakers of this Omega of Apostacy; these evolutionary theories of science so-called being taught in our schools goes right along with the “new” worship styles/music being advocated in many of our congregations. May our eyes, hearts, understanding be enlightened by God’s truth! We have no excuse!
God bless His people on His Sabbath Day!

Creationist students find little support from LSU
The narrative above is a good example of what happens to those who don’t go along with “mainstream” ideas – in this case evolutionary science. An atmosphere of tyranny and oppression is created instead of congeniality and liberty of conscience! This is what is being fostered on the LSU campus – Sad to say, by my own brother-in-law. 🙁 Right, his title is “evolutionary biology professor”, what does that tell you? Is he really going to be concerned that students thoroughly understand Creationism?

These professors don’t believe that Jesus is Divine or that the Bible is God’s Revelation to man. Anger was kindled in the one professor when a Bible text was quoted – no wonder! The Bible is not an authority to be consulted in matters of origins. The student is belittled and looked upon as stupid and one of a simple mind, unlearned! Tyranny and oppression! On the other hand, Christianity – belief in Jesus Christ as the Divine Son of God and His Word as His Revelation to man, having relevance in all aspects of life – fosters an atmosphere of liberty, justice and freedom!

Blessings to all this preparation day for Sabbath!

Adventists are virtually silent
Teaching and believing evolution not only strikes at the very roots of Christianity but also strikes at the very existence of this nation, and the freedoms we have enjoyed!

Creationism is based on “biblical myth” as cited in one high school text book

Calling the Bible a myth, the US Constitution must all have been based upon a myth? The founding fathers were duped, believing in myths?

The belief and teaching of evolution is a child of the devil! This Great Nation, upon whose soil we stand, is being turned into a dragon! The Professors of evolutionary science are in the very forefront of this change of face! Soon, those who persist in standing upon the principles of the Constitution, all based upon principles found in the Bible, will soon feel the ire of the dragon and its hot breath breathing upon them! Bring it on!!, I say!!

La Sierra Academy students weigh in on creation/evolution debate
Interesting to note that these young people took the Mac vs PC ads: http://ww/getamac/ads/w.apple.com , to style their ad in support of evolution, very “innovative”.

It is a sad day if creation is truly being portrayed in such an unattractive style to our youth in our Seventh-Day Adventist Schools!

I, for one, stand in awe and wonder at the majesty, greatness, intelligence, and power of God the Father, His Son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, Who created this world – all things as we see them, even after this earth has gone through thousands of years of sin, by His SPOKEN WORD! Because of this single fact, I rest assured that He will and is taking care of every facet of my life! Therefore, I choose to ever remain in His secret place and thus abide under His shadow, for there I am safe!

The suppositions of man regarding the origin of life, no matter how attractive or popular they are portrayed, are falsehoods to keep us from abiding in the secret place of the Most High! Satan and the many angels with him know their destiny and will do everything in their power to beguile men and women, created in the image of God, to partake of their fate as well! They have studied humanity thousands of years and there is a delusion tailor made for each individual! If we are not abiding in the secret place of God, our Father, we shall not recognize these for what they are, LIES!

May the Lord our Saviour help us today! We are truly nearing the end of the controversy that this world has been in the midst of for thousands of years! God’s people need to avail themselves of this opportunity to make their calling and election sure! Pray and study God’s Word to us as never before!

The state of our church and the world today is as Jesus stated,”But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matt.24:37.
“Because of his holy integrity and unwavering adherence to God’s commands, Noah was counted singular indeed and made himself an object of contempt and derision by answering to the claims of God without a questioning doubt. What a contrast to the prevailing unbelief and universal disregard of His law!…
Noah was tested and tried thoroughly and yet he preserved his integrity in the face of the world–all, all against him. Thus will it be when the Son of man shall be revealed. The saved will be few, as is represented by Noah and his family…
But the days before the Flood steal silently on as a thief in the night. Noah is now making his last effort in warnings, entreaty, and appeal to the rejecters of God’s message. With tearful eye, trembling lip, and quivering voice he makes his last entreaty for them to believe and secure a refuge in the ark. But they turn from him with impatience and contempt that he should be so egotistical as to suppose his family are the only ones right in the vast population of the earth. They have no patience with his warnings, with his strange work of building an immense boat on dry ground. Noah, they said, was insane.
Reason, science, and philosophy assured them Noah was a fanatic. None of the wise men and honored of the earth believed the testimony of Noah. If these great men were at ease and had no fears, why should they be troubled? –Ms. 5, 1876, pp. 1-4. (“The Days of Noah,” cir. 1876.)

The men of highest intellect in Noah’s day could be heard speaking something like this,”The laws of nature have been fixed; the recurring seasons have come and gone in regular order. Rain has never yet fallen. The rivers and brooks have never passed their boundaries. Fixed decrees have kept the waters from overflowing their banks. Why, to say that a sudden flood will come upon our world is indeed very preposterous! There is no scientifically supportable world-flood model. Furthermore, this man knows nothing of science, he has absolutely no known published scientific research to prove his claims. If Noah has a scientifically supportable world-flood model, we would think that the great scientists at the World Science Research Institute would make us aware of it and provide information so that it could be taught. Noah’s arguments for a great deluge of water flooding this world we live on can be only speculative, not scientific.”

Many today in the scientific community believe that the great flood is simply a fairytale, or if it did happen, it was simply a local event. Many use modern scientific models to prove the Bible, but herein lies the most dangerous error!

As in Noah’s day, men reason today,”The greatest scientists of our day who are well learned in the most extensive studies of the origin of life would enthusiastically teach a short history of life if they could find the evidence. Fact is, they have not been able to re-create a short-history model in their science labs. Therefore, to argue for a six-day creation can be only speculative, not scientific. If someone has a scientifically supportable short-history model, I would think that the science staff at the Geoscience Research Institute would make us aware of it and provide information so that it could be taught. GRI has been funded for more than fifty years to do just that – to provide a scientific basis for a recent creation. Even GRI scientists have essentially admitted that the overwhelming weight of the current scientific evidence and most reasonable interpretation of the current scientific data points to life being very old on this planet. Be not concerned, all things continue on as from the beginning. God does not work outside the bounds of the laws of nature. ”

Woe is man!

Romans 1:18-24
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

La Sierra “outraged” over Educate Truth article

<Also, Mr.Wisbey has the following quote in the footnotes of his speech.9 “Long-cherished opinions must not be regarded as infallible. . . . However long men may have entertained certain views, if they are not clearly sustained by the written word, they should be discarded. Those who sincerely desire truth will not be reluctant to lay open their positions for investigation and criticism, and will not be annoyed if their opinions and ideas are crossed. . . . We have many lessons to learn, and many, many to unlearn. God and heaven alone are infallible. Those who think that they will never have to give up a cherished view never have occasion to change an opinion, will be disappointed.” “Search the Scriptures,”Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, July 26, 1892

It is interesting to note the quote that appeared in the foot notes of Mr. Wisbey’s speech. Clearly, one needs to read the entire article to see the context. Very many important points were left out as the following: “How shall we search the Scriptures? Shall we drive our stakes of doctrine one after another, and then try to make all Scripture meet our established opinions, or shall we take our ideas and views to the Scriptures, and measure our theories on every side by the Scriptures of truth? Many who read and even teach the Bible, do not comprehend the precious truth they are teaching or studying. Men entertain errors, when the truth is clearly marked out, and if they would but bring their doctrines to the word of God, and not read the word of God in the light of their doctrines, to prove their ideas right, they would not walk in darkness and blindness, or cherish error. Many give the words of Scripture a meaning that suits their own opinions, and they mislead themselves and deceive others by their misinterpretations of God’s word. As we take up the study of God’s word, we should do so with humble hearts. All selfishness, all love of originality, should be laid aside. Long-cherished opinions must not be regarded as infallible. It was the unwillingness of the Jews to give up their long established traditions that proved their ruin. They were determined not to see any flaw in their own opinions or in their expositions of the Scriptures; but however long men may have entertained certain views, if they are not clearly sustained by the written word, they should be discarded. {RH, July 26, 1892 par. 3}

May we cling to the Holy Scriptures and the Holy Scriptures alone as our rule of faith and practice! Let us be satisfied with that which has been revealed!

There is a warning that we would do well to take heed to:
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18,19.
