I received a note from a pastor the other day asking where Southern Adventist University stood in relation to the issues related to SDA fundamental belief #6 Creation. (All the beliefs are found at: http://www.adventist.org/beliefs/fundamental/. Sometimes when you are so close to a campus you assume that everyone knows what you know. That is too much to assume and so let me share what I do know. Southern Adventist University faculty who work with our students through the School of Religion and in the Biology Department fully support and teach â€œIn six days the Lord made “the heaven and the earth” and all living things upon the earth, and rested on the seventh day of that first week.â€ This belief and teaching is fundamental to the Three Angels Messages (Revelation 14:6-14) and to the message and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Southern Adventist University. Should you wish further information you may wish to note a statement on the School of Religion website: https://www.southern.edu/religion/Pages/facultystatementoncreation.aspx (Read Original)
