Comment on Presbyterian church fires board members by Corneliu.
Am I mistaken in my thinking that Pastor Doug is not paid by our denomination ?
By the way, I think that North America is in the wrong for going against the decision of the church body as a whole and it should be delt with at the up coming GC meeting in Atlanta. God bless you all.

You do not need to know all that there is about evolution to be able to further your studies unless you want to teach evolution. Just as you don’t study couterfit money but the real ones to be able to distinguish between the two.
LSU responds to Adventist Review article
I just wonder, when will somebody with a little backbone from the California Conference, Union or GC will stand up and say: enough is enough. If you don’t believe and if you don’t teach what the Bible is clearly teaching, you have no right to be amployed in any of our Seventh Day Adventist institution. Period. Out you go ! We have plenty of dedicated, CHRISTIAN educators to take theyr place.
Jan Paulsen: 2004 vs 2009
Way to go, Rich ! It looks like we need a new GC President with a little backbone. Ucu.
Rich Constantinescu: The question was put to Dr. Paulsen on the basis that, â€œSome of us are concerned that our church is employing professors and teachers that do not actively uphold some of the churchâ€™s distinctive teachings and positions.â€ Dr. Paulsen tried to answer the question with the question, â€œWhy does God allow sin in the universe?â€ â€œSomehow he allows it.â€His answer, sadly, was irrelevant as to whether teachers should be employed to teach in opposition to Seventh-day Adventist beliefs in a Seventh-day Adventist school. Dr. Paulsenâ€™s answer would be relevant to the question, â€œSome of us are concerned that our church grants Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness to professors and teachers that do not actively uphold some of the churchâ€™s distinctive teachings and positions. These teachers should instead be destroyed immediately.â€ Letâ€™s try his answer in order to attempt a justification of a range of anti-Christian classes. Which of the following, if any, classes does the question, â€œWhy does God allow sin in the universe?â€ justify being taught by a professor in a Seventh-day Adventist school?1. â€œDr. Witchâ€: teaching Sorcery 101 â€“ (Revelation 21:8) â€œBecause God allows sin in the universe.â€2. â€œDr. Adultererâ€: teaching Nightclub Management 101 â€“ (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) â€œBecause God allows sin in the universe.â€3. â€œDr. Infidelâ€: teaching Evolutionary Biology 101 â€“ (Genesis 1:31; Exodus 20:11) â€œBecause God allows sin in the universe.â€4. â€œDr. Idolatorâ€: teaching Buddha Carving 101 â€“ (Exodus 20:5) â€œBecause God allows sin in the universe.â€5. â€œDr. Defilerâ€: teaching Body Piercing, Tattooing and Masochism 101 â€“ (1 Corinthians 3:17) â€œBecause God allows sin in the universe.â€6. â€œDr. Revengeâ€: teaching Nuclear Bomb Assembly 101 â€“ (Matthew 5:43) â€œBecause God allows sin in the universe.â€Answer: Zero.Satan was cast out of heaven (Rev. 12:8-9) and his teachings should be cast out of Christian schools. By the way, no one was saying every book, video and piece of music needs to be approved by the president. But when they are found to be anti-Christian there must be a system in place to remove them, their proponents or both.God bless,Rich (Quote)
