Comment on Record enrollment for LSU by Former Student.
God is always the minority.PK (Quote)
This is not correct. God is always in control…always able to over-rule in the affairs of men. Therefore it makes no difference whether folks see Him as a minority; His will – WILL ultimately be done on Earth as it is in Heaven!

A brother to brother thank you to both Charles & Wesley for your encouragement…by the way, you two together makes “Charles Wesley” who happens to be a great historical soldier of Christ!
Well…the likes & dislikes…I know it’s a somewhat limited communication medium here, no non-verbal, no feedback. So perhaps folks don’t fully understand what’s being said, in some cases.
Nevertheless, it really goes back to “the heart” of the matter…which is our loving + just Savior is examining ALL hearts to ascertain who truly wants to be with Him in Paradise…and who truly will be happiest there and not allow iniquity to rise up a second time.
So in my humble estimation, even our simple “clicks” of like / dislike here on Earth register our moment by moment choices that resonate through the Most Holy Place to help make the ultimate case of our total life choices, all overseen by our dear Jesus who sees our true intent & motive behind even simple “clicks”, and is still interceding for a little while longer….
Absolutely Faithful Disciple. Thank you for clarifying that principle that we are each called to “stand up for Jesus” … I love the inspired words, “men who will not be bought or sold…as true to duty as a needle to the pole”.
I believe that our loving & just God, who will by no means clear the guilty, is at this special before probation closes moment, looking deep into current beating hearts for motive, for loyalty, for intent. We too must examine ourselves to see if we be in the faith – a genuine / authentic to the bone loyally loving commitment of purposeful obedience to Jesus Christ & genuine cherishing of & joining with His most precious possession on fallen Earth – His Church.
La Sierra University Resignation Saga: Stranger-than-Fiction
This incredible irony of 4 liberal California “Adventists” getting caught doing what their liberalism says is oh so “right in their own eyes” – serves as a sobering and humbling reminder to us all:
Gal 6:7,8 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
The mocking of God the Creator that has gone on at LSU…the mocking of God’s humble servant, Ellen White…the mocking of God’s chosen leaders (reminds me of the fate of some boys mocking Elisha)…the mocking ridicule of our special health message by their drinking…the mocking of the Bible truth that we will all be held accountable for every idle word that proceeds from our mouths….
God is absolutely IN CONTROL! He mercifully allows His law of cause –> effect to play out time and again. No one wrestles against mere flesh & blood. We reap what we sow, end of story.
Let us pray for these who’ve been so self-deceived, lest any of us also fall. Let us pray for our church leaders that they will draw courage to make righteous decisions surrounding this. Let us pray for the students & faculty of LSU, that somehow a revival of true Godliness will sweep the enemy back in California. Before probation closes and all mocking ceases…all reaping commences.
What does it take to be a true Seventh-day Adventist?
Jas 4:17 Therefore to him who knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is sin.
To “know” you have to have mature enough moral awareness of right & wrong. You have to have actual knowledge & comprehension of facts about what is right & wrong & why. Clearly God Himself is the only adequate Judge of this “knowing”. Therefore we leave all salvation judgments to Him alone.
While it is entirely true that a baby “conceived in sin” is not knowingly guilty of sin. Nevertheless, that child (all of us) was born sin-separated from God and therefore in need of a Savior from conception on. And that Savior HAS BEEN PROVIDED for all children and all who are living up to the light that they “know” and are capable of “knowing”.
We’ve got to allow our merciful & loving Heavenly Father latitude here to perform as Judge Advocate General — who will also by no means “clear the guilty!”
Perfect Justice! Righteousness and Peace have “Kissed each other” in Jesus Christ our Savior / Advocate.
I found as I circulated throught the various university exhibit booths at the 2010 GC Session in Atlanta, that a significant number of them were going out of their way to distribute clearly stated literature that demonstrated THEY were NOT inline with LSU’s teachings.
This was especially true of SAU, Union, SWAU, AU, OAU.
I stopped in LSU booth & had a personal conversation directly with their president. He was artful at trying to put a happy face on LSU & the controversy. But an unambiguous affirmation of a literal 24/6 contiguous Creation was glaringly absent from his words, and any literature they had there.
Why the foot-dragging? If they TRULY support Bible Creation account + Flood account, why not just come out & say it clearly & unequivocably? ALL controversy would be laid to rest in an instant.
Reminds me of the artful dodging Lucifer exercised in Heaven as he misled 1/3 of the Angels!
