Comment on Report on LSU constituency meeting by Ron Stone M.D.
God wrote the ten commandments with his own finger.When he wrote â€œsix days shall thou labor and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God, in it thou shalt not do any workâ€. How could each day be represented as thousands of years as if one were born and died after 100 years, he may either be required to work his whole life or if born on the seventh day he would then rest all his life with no work?!This doesnâ€™t make â€œcommon senseâ€ to me. The evening and the morning, represent each day in evolutionary day, if you are born at night, you may not even see the light of day!
Progressives do not appeal to common sense. They appeal to “what does the modern world believe?” God has plainly stated how the world and living things were created. But, progressives say He just “snowed” us and humored us because we were and are too stupid to really understand what He did.
Modernists, because they are so highly educated and smarter than all the ignorant backwaters who wrote the bible and have believed it for thousands of years, gotta “reinterpret” what the Bible “really says!”

Well, Geanna, Dr. Chadwick’s words may seem “unkind, prejudicial, and completely uncalled for” to you. However, they are also completely TRUE, which trumps your predudicial analysis!
John D. Sproed said: God wrote the ten commandments with his own finger.When Got wrote them with His finger, did He write the version in Exodus 20, or in Deuteronomy 5? or the Catholic Liturgy version, which Roman Catholics (half the worldâ€™s Christians) would say is Godâ€™s true intent?And, does God expect us to keep the Sabbath rituals the way it is defined in the Bible?
So George, God didn’t write them as the bible states? What else do you think is “wrong” in the bible? Just wondering!

Dr. Chadwick, I agree with your four actions that should be taken. Unfortunately, I do not believe anything will be done. The situation here in California in our SDA Church is far too deep-rooted to be solved by the “foxes watching the henhouse!”

The reason the LaSierra situation has gone uncorrected so long is that most of our administrators have exactly the sort of political instincts that Dan Jackson has. They are politicians and consensus builders; they want to keep the peace and make the trains run on time. But the circumstances call for men of principle, hard men who are willing to stand for the right â€œthough the heavens fall,â€ i.e., regardless who is offended and loudly complains.
Dave, I agree with you. Jackson’s trying to play on “both teams” is not going to go well for him.
Unfortunately, politics is the “SOP” of many of our SDA officials, Jackson being just one. “Political instincts” are the rule, instead of actually doing what is “right” according to what we know in God’s Word.
Shane Hilde: Think big fish: LSU or the Seventh-day Adventist Church.Graham might not have followed procedure with these men, but I donâ€™t know what the procedure is. Iâ€™ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I donâ€™t know if that applies to administrative positions which are at will employees. If it does apply to them, then it appears the process was not followed.
Trustees book says, in 6,9,F, that the Trustes may “discontinue” virtually anyone working at the university.
Does that mean to “fire” or to “force their resignation? Seems like it does.
GMF: If what has been reported about Jackson is correct it is very troubling. Also, one can only wonder why he was selected as the NAD President.Iâ€™ve seen a thing or two which made me wonder about Jackson but this report, if true, has to be the worst. May the Good Lord help us!
Jackson was selected to replace Don Schneider, who was also very “passive” in his approach to this problem.
Besides telling Wisbey to “love Jesus” Jackson did virtually nothing.

Sean, Great summary and analysis of the current situation. Another good review of this matter is in the Jan-March 2011 Elders Journal. It also goes into the 2004 evaluation and recommendations, as you have quoted.
Bradley, Beach and Kaatz retain attorney
How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
