@Ron Stone. Yes, those names you mentioned from PUC are among the ones I know of who are promoting the full acceptance of the [X] agenda at PUC. [edit]

This website is not about other hot-topic issues that are not related to the issue of origins. Such comments will be deleted.

The Metamorphosis of La Sierra University: an eye-witness account
Just a note of affirmation. I still appreciate the Educate Truth updates on this situation with LSU. Yes, our Leaders have addressed the Creation issue head-on at the recent General Conference Session and affirmed our stand as God’s people, but what is going to happen to see that every loose end is tied up. I don’t want to see this issue fall into darkness and be forgotten about. I want to hear about all the developments towards the full resolve of this horrible situation. Any school that bears the name SDA, and finds support and recognition from our church, had better be teaching God’s sacred truth! Otherwise they have no right to bear the name of an institution designed to radically train and equip our younger members to carry the Three Angel’s Message to all the world in this generation. Satan is no dummy! He attacked Moses as a baby. He attacked Jesus as a baby. And he loves nothing more than to destroy Adventist children before they can ever take hold of and carry the Creator’s message to the whole world.

Educate truth, Please keep these issues before the public and help us to know the full resolve of this situation. We want to know what is happening at any school called by the same name as God’s last day church! Let’s not lose sight of what’s happening at La Sierra. I think a similar accountability for all of our schools to every Adventist member is in order. We must be assured of the Spiritual condition of every institution we might choose to send our kids to…and take NOTHING for granted!! The USDA assures meat consumers of the quality of every meat product so that the consumers know their getting the quality food they are paying for. Why not Adventist Education?!!!! The stakes are too high and eternally lasting to not ensure that we’re getting the spiritual training required to survive as an SDA Christian in this disgusting world of sin! What are we eating?! Let’s check it out!

I know for a fact, that we have other serious problems in other of our colleges. Having just graduated in 2009 I was quite attune to some of the problems. Not every place is so bad. But, in my own experience at PUC I had problems. Certainly, not every teacher or anything. But I do find it disturbing when a Professor from the History department holds a public forum on our campus (2004/2005) and describes to all of our students how we need to “re-evaluate our eschatology” and how the 1st beast of Revelation 13 or the harlot of Revelation 17 “doesn’t” point out the papal church as a danger to the Christian faith. It gets even more disturbing to me when the head pastor of the college church is sitting in that public forum and says nothing at all; then afterward he comes over to congratulate me for expressing my “views” at the meeting…but how he doesn’t exactly agree with me. Okay then. Are we not all SDA’s then? [edit – off topic]

Is this not disturbing to anyone else besides me? We must have far more accountability in these matters at our schools. We should draw these matters out in the open.

Educate Truth, please continue your work to ensure “full disclosure” of the issues happening at our schools. People love to hide in the darkness of sin…and none of them want to “come to the light, lest their deeds should be reproved!!!!” (Jesus, John 3). If their behavior was so “innocent” why then should they complain that we must ensure fully intact and consistent Adventist education? They attempt to fulfill and please all of the world’s standards and requests; they make every effort to comply with the requests of their “accreditation bodies.” They love to please the world. How about pleasing God and their organizational employer–the SDA church? WASC tries to be thorough in their quality inspection. Our schools submit to that…no problem! Why not a faith and practice inspection? Why don’t we ensure that God’s message is actually taught and upheld? And if not, then drastic reform or amputation needs to happen. Is the school doing God’s work like it should, or is it helping the devil? If the latter, it cannot have the support or approval of God’s church in the slightest!

Thank you Educate Truth for the work you are doing bring these issues to light! We’ve needed this for a long time!

Changing the Wording of Adventist Fundamental Belief #6 on Creation
Again, thank you to Sean and the other contributors to this website. Thank you for your dedication, research, and continual efforts to keep an intelligent and informing light upon all the ins/outs and various issues wrapped up in this controversy. These matters are SO important and historical! Something is going down big time. And I pray that the truth of God, His book, and Historical Adventism only go up! Let’s hold onto the faith and contend for that which was once and for all delivered to the saints. Blessings and prayers!! Yes, let’s be clear in our FB#6, etc. statements about what the Bible itself is also crystal clear about. Unfortunately, there are those who seek to “twist” the real meaning of Scripture “to their own destruction” (2 Pet. 3:16). For this very reason, our church-approved instructors and organizational entities must stand the testing of even more crystal clear airtight language that makes abundantly clear our church’s position, belief, and expression of what the Bible is actually teaching. Those who would twist Scripture, probably might tend to twist other things as well, but we can make it harder for them for sure!!! They’ll have to be an outright liar or raving lunatic to deny or twist the clear language we ought to be using to express our Biblical views. Which of course needs to be grounds for expulsion from the church’s ranks of approved instructors.

La Sierra Univeristy Fires Dr. Lee Greer; Signs anti-Creation Bond
There’s a few rats in the house, and somebody is coming down for this! Jesus tells us there is nothing secret that shall not be known. It will be proclaimed from the housetops. Our sins will find us out. And I think more than a few have just been found out. May Christ’s truth be uplifted, and may His cause go forward. But for those who dishonor Christ and jeopardize His cause, I pray you’ll be shown for what you are doing. []

In Christ,

La Sierra University Responds to anti-Creation Bond Issue
What a sell out! Selling [out] for a few crumbs of bread or a pot of wretched stew. They despise our birthright [] for just a smidgeon more than 30 pieces of silver. I hope they will throw the coins back [].

Two Adventist Universities Promote Six-Day Creation
Thank you guys so much for posting these refreshing truths about some of our schools who are working hard to do God’s business! I think we absolutely MUST have this continued accountability and free/open press statement about what’s taking place in our SDA Schools these days (and at all times). We never can allow Satan to have an open back door right into our midst by making silent assumptions about the faithfulness of the teaching activities in our schools, for sake of professed name only. God says “BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT, because your adversary the Devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Even an effective pagan government must have proper checks and balances. How much more the church of God who must “…earnestly content for the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3,4)? Satan loves to attack and kill the little ones before they can stand for doing God’s work. He tried with Moses and Christ! Shall he not as surely do so to us? Of course! We have the warnings all throughout Scripture to be on the lookout and the watch for false teachers and false prophets!! We MUST all be accountable, and hold accountable, that Bible truth may be taught and educated in our schools that were so designed for just such a purpose. The History of God’s church at large and the History of our people DEMAND accountability and transparency in all these matters!! Let’s hold accountable all our schools and fortify the willing ones for the task of proclaiming the truth. Thank you for this article and this work. Let’s make known when some are doing what they should and reprimand and censure those who are making groves to Satan under Israel’s banner!

Creeds and Fundamental Beliefs
I agree with the article. Let’s maintain order and accountability in God’s church! We uphold the standard of God’s word in our church entirely. The church is to be the “pillar and foundation of the truth” (1 Timothy 3:16). The literal 7 day week from Creation, and the Sabbath are Bible teaching…plain and simple. It’s not merely some person’s conjecture. We have every right and necessity, as God’s people, and His church for the last days to UPHOLD the Bible’s true and clear teachings. If some individuals want to distort or misrepresent those Bible teachings, the church must, needs to, and shall hold them accountable. If they don’t like it, they can go start their own church of “so and so says” religion, and mix whatever kind of philosophy and heresy they want to. But don’t call it 7th-day Adventism. That’s the farthest thing from it.
