Comment on La Sierra University Continues Deceptive Spin Tactics by Mary.
“The work of creation cannot be explained by science…..In the creation of the earth, God was not indebted to pre-existing matter. ‘He spake, and it was;….He commanded and it stood fast……The mastermind in the confederacy of evil is ever working to keep out of sight the words of God, and to bring to view the opinions of men. He means that we shall not hear the voice of God, saying, ‘This is the way, walk ye in it.’ Isaiah 30:20. Through perverted educational processes he is doing his utmost to obscure heaven’s light.
Philosophical speculation and scientific research in which God is not acknowledged are making skeptics of thousands. In the schools of today the conclusions that learned men have reached as a result of their scientific investigations are carefully taught and fully explained; while the impression is distinctly given that if these learned men are correct, the Bible cannot be. Skepticism is attractive to the human mind. The youth see in it an independence that captivates the imagination, and they are deceived. Satan triumphs. He nourishes every seed of doubt that is sown in young hearts. He causes it to grow and bear fruit, and soon a plentiful harvest of infidelity is reaped.
It is because the human heart is inclined to evil that it is so dangerous to sow the seeds of skepticism in young minds. Whatever weakens faith in God robs the soul of power to resist temptation. It removes the only real safeguard against sin. We are in need of schools where the youth shall be taught that greatness consists in honoring God by revealing His character in the daily life. Through His word and His works we need to learn of God, that our lives may fulfill His purpose. ……..The tempter has his agents, educated according to his methods, inspired by his spirit, and adapted to his work. Shall we co-operate with them? Shall we receive the works of his agents as essential to the acquirement of an education?
If the time and effort spent in seeking to grasp the bright ideas of infidels were given to studying the precious things of the word of God, thousands who now sit in darkness and in the shadow of death would be rejoicing in the glory of the Light of life.” Ministry of Healing pp.414, 439, 440.
I truly believe if we as a church body would by the grace of God would be willing to put the Bible as central in all our education process from the very youngest to the most advanced and humbly submit to the counsel He has so graciously blessed us with in the Spirit of Prophecy this problem would not have surfaced. I believe we are reaping that harvest of skepticism. Why oh Why do we think we have to teach even the rudiments of evolution?? Cannot we not hear the prophet????? If we are so familiar with the True, won’t we recognize the false??????
May God help us all the recognize our high calling in Christ Jesus.
