C.A.S.E. and a Lie.

It was Dr Henry Boynton Smith, Professor of systematic theology at Union Theological Seminary in the USA from 1854-1874, who prophetically said "One thing is certain - that Infidel Science will rout everything excepting thorough-going Christianity ... The fight will be between a stiff thorough-going orthodoxy and a stiff thorough-going infidelity". Speaking to that statement on a later date, B. B. Warfield, Professor of Theology at Princeton Seminary, 1887 to 1921, originator of the term and declared 'Fundamentalist', said "This witness is true".

Well more than a century later and the battle, predicted by Dr Henry Boynton Smith and affirmed by B. B. Warfield, is on in earnest and from one side it has got dirty.

C.A.S.E. (Centre for Apologetics Science and Education) is an outpost of those representing the force of "a stiff thorough-going infidelity" operating with access to vulnerable residential students at New College, University of NSW, Sydney, Australia. C.A.S.E. has 'form' which has been highlighted two or three times at this blogspot in the past. C.A.S.E. continues to warp the evangelical mind of students of New College and a recent instance warrants mention here.

Once again running with the hound of ISCAST (Christians in Science and Technology), representatives of C.A.S.E. put together a panel yesterday, 19 July 2012, at New College to discuss "The questions students ask: Science and faith in the classroom". As could be expected, nothing of faith-building in the Word of God was fed to students because trust in the thoughts of men over and against the Word of God was the menu.

Add to that a blatant lie went unchecked by C.A.S.E. and ISCAST as one of the panelists Vaughan Brown, Science Teacher at Sydney Church of England Grammar School, alleged that Biblical Creationist scientist, Dr Jonathan Sarfati, "teaches that you can't have eternal salvation without believing in a literal six day creation". This is false. A reading of Dr Sarfati's writings will readily disclose the truth.

It is a sorry state of affairs when those who say they are Christian resort to telling a lie, and that about another Christian, to achieve their agenda. C.A.S.E. and ISCAST, you should be ashamed to allow this to occur under your watch.

The one good thing to come out of the event was the lament by Mr Brown that an increasing number of students he encounters in his classroom are questioning evolution. What Mr Brown sees as bad, God works as a good. At least while a degenerate spirit works in areas of the church a Spirit of Truth is working to bring light in the life of some students.

Once again, shame on you C.A.S.E. and ISCAST. I remind readers of what I heard a few years ago. A fellow Christian had tried to obtain permission from a principal of C.A.S.E. for Dr Jonathan Sarfati to speak to students of New College. His request was denied. It seems C.A.S.E. is more comfortable with allowing a lie to be fed to New College students than to hear the truth from the original source.

Shame on you C.A.S.E. and ISCAST.

Sam,

So are you surprised? Leading lights in CASE and ISCAST profess a theological doctrine owing its basis to Teilhard de Chardin. Chardin himself, as some have put strong evidence toward, was a pathological liar and cheat. Worse still was his belief that Christianity was, in effect, no different to New Age philosophy in which opposites were reconciled culminating in some giant leap to the Omega Point. Don't forget even the Vatican had enough of this scallywag - yet ISCAST and CASE hold him up and someone worthwhile. Go figure!

John, your message was so important you said it twice.

It is notable, if one is prepared to consider it, how in what were once bastions of sound theological teaching in Western Culture there are today universities of secular disposition. This is the work of the Evil One.

His work has not ended there for theological colleges are, by degrees, upon the same path.

New College is just another battleground being won to the Evil One as those who have succumbed to secular thought on Origins and present a syncretized doctrine via C.A.S.E. and ISCAST, have full access to minds already under assault from secular, even atheistic, lecturers at the University of NSW.

Without God's intervention, it is a bleak picture for the church.

Howdy Sam,
Haven't commented in a whiie. Just reading with appreciation in the background.

Farel!!! I thought you were dead! I'm glad to read you are alive and out there in the background.

It's ironic that you should mention TeamPyro. I propose a blog in a couple of days mentioning something posted on their site.

I'll have a look at the post you have mentioned. Thanks.

Yeah, thanks Farel.

Trend 4 identified in that blog certainly has application for those within the Episcopalian Diocese of Sydney who, of late, have made known an unScriptural approach to same-sex marriage.
