Comment on LSU leaves out key facts by Doug Kendall.

There is lots of evidence for a short age earth. No need to write a book here, you know it as well as anyone. However

Bottom line: no one needs to prove Creationism. The Bible declares it to be true and the Bible is what the SDA church is based on. Period.

If your faith in the Bible is only tied to what you can see, you will have a very narrow view of God. Evolution is just a way of saying, I trust my own eyes more than the word of God.
We will be learning the details of creation throughout eternity, and we will learn some of it through science as time goes on. But our faith is not based on proving the Bible to be true through science. Science can not show the creators hand or the power of Gods word.

Ravi Zacharias: Should Church Members be Held to a Higher Standard?
Right on the money Sean. This issue seems so clear to many of us, but there are many who have a misunderstanding of God and his ways. We must not judge their hearts. We can however judge many things/actions/ideas to be right or wrong. God has given us his laws and his word for that very reason.

Silence of the Geoscience Research Institute
Very true ICR and AIG are miles ahead of us in most every area. We should be at the front of this Creation vs Evolution Issue, not debating if the Bible is true or not.

Andrews University statement on creation
Very well done. God is honored by the Biblical integrity of this statement.

GC document holds LSU professors accountable
That was a great Statement. Too bad no one gave it much thought, much like the Creation summit statements of 2004.

I am aware the GC recently had meetings on the issue and are working to resolve it. Most of the GC leaders have united in support of literal creation from what I have heard. (this is good news)
However, it’s clear having meetings and giving out statements of support for Creationism isn’t going to change things very much at LSU. (the bad news)
