Comment on Notice of constituency meeting of the NCC by Jonathan Smith.
The only way to get revival is to preach and practise “Christ Our Righteousness”. And if creation is denied by people who have adequate access to the truth, they deny Christ’s work and words and can never get revival.
So I foresee a great split coming soon.

Notice of constituency meeting of the NCC
I kinda agree with you here. The reason the Pharisees became legalists is NOT because they doubted the word of God but instead they enacted writings to support the laws until their writings replaced the laws. For example, they had over 300 regulations on not bearing a burden on the Sabbath (in addition to their other Sabbath regulations).
Laws do not make people better. We may constrain them ad infinitum and if their hearts are evil their works will always be evil. Out of the treasure of the heart the mouth speaks (finger writes).
So when we see the bad fruit and people are not deceived but rebellious, the only solution is to remove them.
Let us not be afraid of action and think other types of action will solve the problem. At some time the Achans in the camp must be taken out.

Private Recorded Conversation Prompts La Sierra Resignations
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
There are some who object to privately recorded conversations being used in this manner (like the Spectrum blog) but could it be that God is causing judgment on unacceptable behaviour?
I stand in support of Educate Truth and its efforts to maintain integrity on an SDA campus of higher education. â€œOnce to every man and nation (university) comes the moment to decide, in the strife of truth and falsehood, for the good or evil side.â€Our church history shows that we have had to watch church institutions (Battle Creek San and Hospital) leave the sisterhood of institutions due to false teachings by its leadership. We should not be surprised if the cost of fidelity to truth has a price. Politically, we know that freedom has a price. Spiritually, fidelity to truth has a price.
I regret that Shane is coming under attack for having the courage to keep the light burning for doctrinal truth in Adventist education. We have long purported the idea of integration of faith and learning. Why would we want to excuse a science department who moves away from the â€œfaithâ€ aspect of its discipline?
All those who decide to live a Biblically faithful life shall suffer persecution.

You ought to grow up. I don’t see how Educate Truth can cause anybody to be fired. After all, it does not pay salaries and it is not a decision maker at all. Educate Truth has only been a commentator.
If the university Chair said the issues with the bio dept are not the factors, then you should take up your beef with the chair and indeed ask him for the explanations. It is rather small of you to attack Hilde and his blog at a time like this.
If at anytime in the future there is evidence (not speculation) to support your claim, THEN you may rant and rail. Yet, you apparently have no idea what it means to be faithful to the Bible and you either accept evolution as fact or saw no conflict with what the professors taught.
If at all you consider yourself a Christian, I hope you recognise that faithfulness to Bible truths is more important than worldly honour and all will have to give an account for their actions later. I think Educate Truth has tried to be faithful to the Bible contrary to some professed Christians.
Former LSU student letter reveals professor’s agenda
Where men refused to deal with the apostates, those in charge will be accounted as guilty.
In the great reckoning to come they will pay.
I am glad this lady had the courage to speak and write. The evidence is plain for all to see.
