Comment on LSU Board news release and actions by Frances Camacho.
Nothing substantial regarding if they still support and teach truths from the bible is shared . Any entity like ours may always share in writing what we believe but the issue is “are we still practising it?”
Furthermore, when I read what they quoted from Education page 17, it makes you believe that we should encourage independent thinking from our youth (which there’s no doubt they are full of this type of thinking already): yes, it may be healthy, to a certain degree but not to the point of challenging God’s word! In fact, this statement of Sister White has nothing to do with God’s word nor any of His counsel. If you continue on reading from page 17, it shares this, “It is the work of true education…to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of OTHER MEN’S THOUGHT. The issue is not about any man’s thought but what is at stake here is God’s word on creation. It still continues, “Instead of confining their study to that which men have said or written, let students be directed to the SOURCES OF TRUTH,… And what is truth? The bible says that “…I am the TRUTH, the Way and the Life…(John 14:6)” The best source to find truth and which we can only trust, is of course, the BIBLE! In fact, 2 Timothy 3:16 describes the authenticity of the bible, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” Again, the bible clearly shows that it is not composed and written by men’s thoughts: 2Peter 1:20,21 share, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY GHOST.” Let us continue to pray and hope that the school board will be more transparent and simple in the way they deal with their science teachers.
