Well Geanna, Looks like something is gearing up to happen! We’ll see what actually does happen soon, I hope!

Dr Ted Wilson spoke at the â€œYes, Creationâ€ event and once again quoted the material that you can find in 3SG 90-92, regarding theistic evolution and â€œdisguised infidelityâ€ as well as the sections speaking to the problem of theistic evolutionism vs the Sabbath and vs the character of God.Elder Wilson said he wants to continue to chair the board of GRI as President of the GC and that his Administrative agenda includes the task of making sure that our schools have teachers that actually believe in a literal and recent 7 day creation week, as well as a global flood. (Among other things).He was asked specifically about the LSU problem in a Q&A that followed and said that he would not speak to the Administrative solutions that might be followed in that case â€“ but repeated his statement that he would do everything possible to ensure that teachers in our institutions actually believed and taught in harmony with the voted affirmation of creation statement and FB#6 specifically related to a literal, recent, consecutive 7 day creation week.in Christ,Bob
It sounds like Wilson is on the right track so far. No wonder AT and Spectrum are in a “hissy fit” over this guy!
World Church moves to advance statements regarding creation
Looks like the GC delegates are reading the same bible I’m reading. A battle is looming between the GC delegates and LSU. LSU will continue to “hunker down” as best they can (similar to the Alamo) but the “handwriting on the wall” appears plainer day by day.
Are the GC words just “hot air?” I hope not!

The reason the LaSierra situation has gone uncorrected so long is that most of our administrators have exactly the sort of political instincts that Dan Jackson has. They are politicians and consensus builders; they want to keep the peace and make the trains run on time. But the circumstances call for men of principle, hard men who are willing to stand for the right â€œthough the heavens fall,â€ i.e., regardless who is offended and loudly complains.
Dave, I agree with you. Jackson’s trying to play on “both teams” is not going to go well for him.
Unfortunately, politics is the “SOP” of many of our SDA officials, Jackson being just one. “Political instincts” are the rule, instead of actually doing what is “right” according to what we know in God’s Word.
Shane Hilde: Think big fish: LSU or the Seventh-day Adventist Church.Graham might not have followed procedure with these men, but I donâ€™t know what the procedure is. Iâ€™ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I donâ€™t know if that applies to administrative positions which are at will employees. If it does apply to them, then it appears the process was not followed.
Trustees book says, in 6,9,F, that the Trustes may “discontinue” virtually anyone working at the university.
Does that mean to “fire” or to “force their resignation? Seems like it does.
GMF: If what has been reported about Jackson is correct it is very troubling. Also, one can only wonder why he was selected as the NAD President.Iâ€™ve seen a thing or two which made me wonder about Jackson but this report, if true, has to be the worst. May the Good Lord help us!
Jackson was selected to replace Don Schneider, who was also very “passive” in his approach to this problem.
Besides telling Wisbey to “love Jesus” Jackson did virtually nothing.

Sean, Great summary and analysis of the current situation. Another good review of this matter is in the Jan-March 2011 Elders Journal. It also goes into the 2004 evaluation and recommendations, as you have quoted.

How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
