Comment on Dr. Ervin Taylor: ‘A truly heroic crusade’ by Robert Montague.
I’m not so much interested in what professional arguers say, but rather in what the truth is. And there’s only one option here for a Seventh-day Adventist. That option is that the Bible is accurate. Ellen White dealt directly with the types of ideas that Dr. Taylor likes to promote. The issue is already settled. The early chapters of Patriarchs and Prophets, along with other references, make clear that one either rejects the divinity of Ellen White’s writings (and the obvious reading of the Bible), or the person believes in divine Creation just as it sounds like it happened in the book of Genesis. So while Dr. Taylor may find it entertaining, interesting, or satisfying to suggest that one can be a Seventh-day Adventist and also make up his/her theology on the fly, it just isn’t so. And the fact that many members in good-standing may be willing to support Dr. Taylor’s position has exactly no substantive value.
So as Bob Pickle has recommended, let’s move beyond giving any space, thought, or respect to these frivolous comments. Dr. Taylor may or may not have points to raise if he is addressing a group of people who don’t know better, but we do, or should.

I know for sure I would rather be in Dr Pitman’s care, than with someone who is restricted to the group-think and status quo!

Thank you Dr Chadwick!!! My faith is bolstered! Specifically, my faith that God still has His “7,000” who have not bowed the knee to the Baalim of scientific correctness. The problem with the professors who we hear about on EducateTruth.com, who promote the idea that evolution is the best explanation of origins we have available…all the while feining faith in the God of the Bible…is that this sets students up for life to make the silly mistake that Gilbert did, of abandoning the Biblical certainty of origins for the wildly uncertain speculations, and constantly readjusting theories of evolutionary beginnings. I don’t wish anyone ill, but I do wish all those who are thus double-minded would act like ladies and gentlemen of honor, and withdraw from our tertiary institutions to do their teaching paid by secular donors rather than dishonestly accepting the tithe of the Lord while doing dishonor to His reputation.
