Comment on LSU student petition surfaces by mary hilde.
nice. it’s hard to believe there were actually 78 students six years ago who cared that evolution was being promoted. in 2009 it seemed there were only two or three who protested, and they have either left the school in disgust or have graduated after much duress. i wonder … are there any students left who care about biblical creation or has the school finally weeded them all out?

Michigan Conference takes substantial action in LSU conflict
PTL for the Michigan Conference. Finally folks willing to DO something. Our prayers are paying off.
The SECC stands for something
shameful is right! i’m appalled by the SECC and what they’re doing. at least we know how quickly they can jump into action when they don’t like someone or something. here we thought they weren’t saying anything about LSU because it just took them a long time to do things. NOPE.
Deal with LSU
ps ~ by the way, that quote was taken from VOLUME 5 of the SDA bible commentary, pg. 1096.
Deal with LSU
church membership can & should be called into question. see the church manuel, chapter 13. what do you think the story in joshua 7:10-26 means? what do you think the bible commentary means on p. 1096 when it says: “the names of those who sin and refuse to repent should not be retained on the church books, lest the saints be held accountable for their evil deeds. those who pursue a course of transgression should be visited and labored with, and if they then refuse to repent, they should be separated from church fellowship, in accordance with the rules laid down in the word of God …. those who refuse to hear the admonitions and warning given by God’s faithful messengers are not to be retained in the church. they are to be disfellowshipped; for they will be as achan in the camp of israel — DECEIVED and DECEIVING. who, after reading the record of achan’s sin and punishment, can think it according to the will of God that those who do wickedly, refusing to repent, are to be retained in the church? to retain them would be an insult to the God of heaven.”
oh! wouldn’t the current secular climate in our church cause “progressive adventists” to scream at the thought of disfellowshipping an “adventist” because they are teaching error & apostasy? LSU obviously doesn’t run under God’s plan of discipline. they have hired non-adventists & evolutionists to begin with, after all!
my concern is for those who do nothing about this issue. who stand by & let error be taught. this is our test. and it seems the greater guilt rests on those who not only don’t do anything to speak against error, but presume to speak against those who are standing for right. it would seem their guilt doubles. in other words, be careful to study what you say & believe before you start talking without biblical grounds. we all have an influence for either good or evil (no in-between!), and God have mercy on you if your influence is cast on the wrong side. the right side is, of course, on that of the bible & spirit of prophecy.
