Comment on La Sierra University won’t neglect creation teaching, president, chairman vow by Ron Stone M.D..
One of the strategies of liberals in our SDA Church is to “put off” and stall. Several of the proponents of liberalism have actually stated a specific strategy that they believe might work, which is to wait until the “conservatives” die off or retire!
Ryan Bell expressed this on a podcast in Nov. 209 and Hyveth Williams said essentially the same thing on LLBN’s “Intersections” show today (3-31-11)when speaking about women’s ordination.
The problem with this strategy is that the SDA Church is gatherering most of its new members in more conservative areas of the world, i.e. outside the NAD.
I think LSU may have a similar strategy in place. Wait, stall, put off, and continue to slowly undermine our SDA beliefs, as we see going on in the area of “evolution as fact” until a new set of leaders are elected or appointed,or the conservatives simply “die off.”
This strategy may work, at least short term, as conferences such as we see in the Pacific Unions simply “do their own thing” no matter what the world church believes, knowing that the so-called leaders, even the “conservative” ones, will do nothing to stop them. It’s working so far, as we see at LSU!

The moment someone quotes an imbecile like David Asscherick with any credibility, who even Wikipedia states became a pastor without a college degree, you know they’re just pushing an anti-Science agenda and should lose all credibility.It’s unfortunate that La Sierra has buckled under the ridiculous attacks that wreaked of McCarthyism. Off I go to non-Adventist colleges to get a REAL education! It’s too bad, really, I was seriously considering La Sierra.
By what criteria do you judge David Assherick to be an “imbecile?!” Because he preaches God’s Truth? Because he isn’t afraid to stand up to heresy and apostasy in our SDA Church? Are those criteria for an “inbecile?” If so we have a LOT of “imbecile” pastors that we need to put out to pasture! The Hope Channel and 3ABN need to remove just about their whole staffs!
Well it is now clear that the fox is in the hen house. So… lets just educate that fox to present to the chickens that he just wants a dialog to ensue before lunch. The chickens will buy it, will the owners of the hen house believe the fox has changed its ways? Stay tuned…
Well stated Marcel!!!

Faith: Prof Kent:How do you figure that this site keeps biology profs with integrity out of LSU? Any professor that is following the Bible, supporting creation, and the SDA church has nothing to hide and nothing to fear.When you say “quality” applicants, just how do you judge their credentials?As far as I am concerned, it is far more important that these professors have a firm grasp on the teachings of creation and the teachings of the Bible than any credentials the world can offer. If that had been the criteria used as a guideline for hiring, we wouldn’t be in this mess now. And that goes for all our SDA institutions.
I agree, Faith. However, the type of leadership (Guy,Geraty,and Wisbey)LSU has had over the past two decades shows why we have evolutionists teaching “evolution as fact” at LSU and those supporting any type of creationism being intimidated, both students, and I would suspect faculty as well.
Does the LSU Board even care about this deterioration in our biblical beliefs. Well, their inaction, ineptitude, and apathy in finding any solutions tell me they don’t, at least the majority who control the Board.
Private Recorded Conversation Prompts La Sierra Resignations
BTW, If you’re a beer or ale drinker, the best are the “darker” and more “robust” varieties, as these have more antioxidants and phytochemical.
Or, you could just eat some oatmeal, barley, or similar whole grain!
I have much more knowledge of PUC, and it has as many or more problems as LSU, although these have been, so far, ignored by most. PUC thrives on its “high ratings” from U.S. News and World Report, etc. But, it would get much lower ratings if someone knowledgeable from an SDA rating agency actually did a thorough investigation of the school.
Adventist kid: @Ron Stone M.D.:Continue to believe that if you want. Not a scientific sample to say the least, but I just asked roughly 80 high school graduates from this year whether they chose which school they were going to or if their parents did. I didn’t even get ten who said their parents limited their choices or prevented them from going to their first choice.
I’ll continue to believe what I actually see and hear, not some biased opinion from you.
Do you know this or just a guess? I certainly hope they’re gone from LSU completely!
