Comment on ‘Yes, Creation!’ at the General Conference Session by Ron Stone M.D.
Whenever in a discussion I hear someone say that we need to have an open mind what they are really saying is that we should agree with them. On hair styles and the food one eats a open mind is fine, on something as important and straight forward as â€œin six days God Createdâ€ Iâ€™ll stick with the Bible, and risk being accused of having a closed mind.
You’re right on target again, Richard. The crux of secular humanistic philosophy is to be “open” to anything, so “everything” is equally valid and acceptable, at least to someone. The Bible is actually very “close minded!”

Dear Pauluc: I am fascinated that you ignore all the Ellen White statements I have cited, which clearly indicate Ellen Whiteâ€™s own awareness of her prophetic role and its meaning.We can argue at length as to the reason Walter Rea ended up as he did.But the statements I quoted from Ellen White are absolutely clear as to the â€œall or nothingâ€ nature of her authority.The fact that you have not responded to these statements gives evidence to all in this discussion that you cannot answer this plain evidence.God bless!Pastor Kevin Paulson
Paulac admits he believes the Bible contains “errors.” I guess he’s going to tell us where and how he can “correct” these errors? Well, Paulac?!
‘Yes, Creation!’ at the General Conference Session
Bob, Geraty and Wisbey, as well as the Biol Profs we have been discussing certainly believe in “creation.” Just creation over eons of time, as the “intelligent” evolutionists keep telling us!
@Geanna Dane:They try the shell game of â€œevolution is changeâ€ so that they can get the idea inserted and accepted. AFter all â€œchange happensâ€.Once in the door they put on the clown-costume and start talking about â€œwell now we all agree that birds come from reptiles cause evolution is a factâ€.It is wayyy too late in this dialogue to start pretending that the LSU evolutionists actually believe in a literal 7 day creation week, deny that birds come from reptiles and in fact like to call â€œchange in fingernail lengthâ€ â€” evolution, fully rejecting the birds-come-from-reptiles storybook.Surely we can agree to that set of basic points.in Christ,Bob
Well stated Bob, Geanna’s bait and switch tactic regarding the “definition” of evolution is well analyzed by ID advocates. And, Geanna simply follows the evolutionary dogma of confusion of terms when discussing Darwinism.

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.

How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
