Comment on CCC apprises leadership of LSU news by Dev Mines.

Interesting. I’ll be curious to see what all this talk looks like in active reality. Maybe there is hope, after all! I’m not totally convinced, as similar things were said at the last meeting without anything changing, but we’ll see. Kudos to the board members for standing behind Biblical principles.

Board requests progress reports from LSU administration
Wow. In other words, they’re bowing to diplomacy, dragging this issue out and essentially doing nothing. They can reaffirm all they want. Who cares what they think when they allow evil to continue. It’s at least reassuring they support creation, as it seems most of the faculty do not. That’s a plus! We’ll continue to hope the board’s courage grows and it won’t forever shy away from its task of implementing hard-hitting reform.

Private: AToday makes public apology
That came out kind of wrong. What I meant to say was that if you choose to be lost, that’s one thing, but to preach or teach theology not in accordance with the Bible, you will eventually lead others to destruction, as well as yourself. I didn’t intend to say anyone in specific was lost or not. Just that people “with no light in them” are dragging people down.

Private: AToday makes public apology
I take issue with shabby journalism, but at least they apologized. It still doesn’t excuse AToday’s obvious bias & agenda — that’s also shabby journalism. I also take issue with people calling themselves Adventist when they’re not. It’s sad that such theological liberals are in places people notice them, like at AToday. I’d say, “oh well, someday they’ll get their just reward” for promoting views against Biblical doctrine and the SDA church and just leave it at that, but these folks are taking hundreds of people with them. If you’re going to be lost, fine. But it’s a shame when a lost person is vocal about what they believe, dynamically dragging others to their spiritual death. Shame on Erv and AToday.

Manipulated LSU Faculty Senate document tells false story
Sean, AToday leaving out the date was shabby journalism, whether it was intentional or not. If it was a mistake, let’s see an explanation and correction from AToday, as any good publication would do. If a writer made such huge mistakes in accuracy more than a few times, they’d be fired. By the way AToday is acting, we can safely guess it was not a mistake. Has anyone there even taken a basic journalism class? They completely ignored one of the five questions a journalist is obligated to ask: who, what, where, how and WHEN. The fact that this date is important, and has the potential to spin the story in favor of AToday’s views, makes AToday look all the more shabby and deceitful. You can spin stories in journalism, obviously, but leaving out a crucial piece of information to form a “white” lie is shameful.

But no, it still doesn’t change the fact the faculty senate, whoever they may be, wrote a document supporting professors who promote evolution. Again, it makes me wonder if all the staff actually support this document, or there are a few vocal evolutionists pushing their agenda.

Manipulated LSU Faculty Senate document tells false story
This whole fiasco makes me wonder about the faculty senate. Who are they? Nine or 10 people? If so, that’s hardly representative of the entire staff. It’s obvious, whoever the faculty senate are, their personal views on creation influenced the writing of that document. No one who believes in the Bible and a recent creation would sacrifice this truth to support errant professors who are leading youth to destruction. Why? Because they also know we’re supposed to stand for truth, no matter the cost.

I doubt the faculty senate took a poll of all the teachers to see if everyone approved of such a stand as they made in this document. In essence, the faculty senate said they support professors no matter what they teach, and professors should be free to teach whatever they want at an SDA university. Sad! Not to mention completely wrong. Therefore, I think it’d be beneficial to know who these senate folks are, what they believe, and if their position is truly representative of the professors as a whole. If their position isn’t representative, then it’s time the rest of the faculty speak up. People tend to be spineless when it comes to confrontation, but now is not the time for fear or fainting hearts. We get the vocal evolutionists babbling on, that’s for sure! Where are the voices for creation at LSU? Creation, anyway? Any creationists out there?
