Ohio court spars on science teacher's creationist lessons

State Supreme Court justices sparred with lawyers on Wednesday in a heated hour of arguments over the extent to which a now-fired public school science teacher had the right to push his religious beliefs in class.

A lawyer for the school board that dismissed John Freshwater in 2011 said he waved a Bible at his students, handed out religious pamphlets and espoused creationism in his evolution lessons.

Freshwater's attorney, Rita Dunaway, said accounts of Freshwater's class conduct were exaggerated and he was exercising his academic freedom to explore controversial ideas.

She said the board's decision to dismiss Freshwater showed hostility toward religion. ...

You may be interested that Spurgeon's Old Church has a Pastor with 'A READ FOR THE LORD' scheme.
He states: "Read and be challenged"
"Your first priority throughout life is to read God’s Word. Other reading must never raid Bible reading time. Only the Word is infallible and authoritative, and all other books are good only as they promote Bible understanding and application."

His recommendations are in two lists:

I suspect the poster 'with respect' will have a coronary, but I am happy to by-pass his strange comments.
If the Baptist Confession 1689 is biblical then 'sound' books have to be the consensus of more than one mere individual like feeble-minded me!
We know that one can never read books & hold to the infallibility of Holy Scripture, yet still be unsound and wrongly apply scripture.
Good books are simply that..GOOD BOOKS!
A Presbyterian might disagree with the books on Baptism!

Goodbooks,
Thanks again for the links, reviews, etc. Very nice of you to take thw time, do the research, etc. Thank you.
I followed the conversation and understand it. For me, supplimenting with books is important to put some of the more difficult things into perspective, to make sense out of things, etc.
On the other hand, I also understand how a biased book can lead one to take a left instead of a right.
I will read carefully but always let the Bible be the final say.

From what I read in the article, the teacher is actually in the wrong. It's not a simple case of a teacher being forbidden to acknowledge the existence of credible opposing hypotheses.

Burning crosses into students' arms? proselytizing? How did he think it would end?

One might suppose it could be difficult to explain for those who do not see all the unregenerate as the ungodly of which Paul speaks.
Difficult but not impossible, Mike.

Note,

Romans 5:6 KJV
6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Here is the limitation, Christ only died for the ungodly.

Note,

Isaiah 53:5 KJV
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

The limitation again, Christ died for trangressors who committed iniquity.

So when you explain the text to the unsaved, they mostly say, "Well that has nothing to do with me, because I AM NOT a sinner, a transgressor, and I do not commit iniquity."

Thus, the non-elect shoot themselves in the foot, and reject the only hope men have of eternal salvation. Christ died for the ungodly who acknowledge themselves ungodly. And they will never do that until enlightened by the Spirit of God.

The only alternative is that our Lord paid a horrible price for the sins of all men, and then horrible unbelieving men paid the price over again in hell, and that forever.

Categories we have are:

1. ungodly unregenerate but elect
2. ungodly unregenerate but not elect (hence the reprobates)
3. godly unregenerate but elect
4. godly unregenerate but not elect (also reprobates)
5. ungodly regenerate who will make it by the skin of their teeth.
6. godly regenerate who will have all the tea and biscuits in heaven.

Any other categories?

It is after all the Bible which is called the sword of the Spirit, not Pink, or Ryle or Spurgeon.
Though these men may be of help along the way, being fallible they may also hinder your understanding, if you do not check critically everything that they write.
I agree, just as much as you or I or any poster on SA might unintentionally hinder others.

But because they 'might' hinder...that wouldn't stop me sending a sinner to the Metropolitan tabernacle or a fundamentalist Arminian, either!

Granting these men might be a help along the way, what makes you think that they can not be an instrument of help BEFORE someone has considered a particular aspect of Holy Scripture?

You know they can, in God's wonderful Sovereignty.

So we agree! Do you check critically your own Pastor when he preaches. I know you do! How about several years ago when you were just a little lamb? Did Pastor ever bring up something from scripture that you had never previously considered or you had wrongly divided the word of Truth?

I know your Berean spirit would have searched the word AFTER! So God uses instruments BEFORE you thought about such? Yes, we agree at last

Thanks John!!

Brother, we always are needing to hear the same things over and over. Fallen man regenerate is still under par, despite his right standing with God. Keep up the good work!

Now, what was I doing? Ah yes, trying to finish off a painting.

I hope your posting is not getting glitches.

I think your comments are also very valid. In fact, I think some tract companies make a mistake in producing tracts which are scriptures only on a particular subject. For most unregenerate souls, what they need is to have the Bible explained to them, because being unregenerate they are viewing with unenlightened eyes. We might love the text which says, "Christ died for the ungodly", but the unsaved person needs to be told what it means.

this now colors how you think the Lord should deal with everyone else
Methinks you must like a debate, brother; did I really suggest the above or that the Bible is not all sufficient in my posts ? Or certain other things you implied.
I believe many Biblicists post mini-sermonettes(some could fill a book!)on SA as they believe they are Bible Based helps. We have sound pastors and teachers who preach the word and write extended sermons themselves as helps in book form.
I believe you are illogically mistaken if you do not believe a sound book will not challenge an individual BEFORE they have even considered an aspect of a particular doctrine. Just like sitting on a pew and Pastor introduces something you had not previously considered.
To clarify I posted to Christopher suggesting books that might be a help on the Sovereignty of God. I did mention to be a berean and that we need God's grace..do we agree that even Biblicists require God's grace to open our eyes. God in His Sovereignty often chooses to use books which are scripture sermons too. I am sorry we disagree and thank God that He has given you much insight and understanding of His word.

I gave a personal example as God will always care for His feeble lambs.

If you want to see and hear Christ each day, then better to read/study his word

And I have just learnt that by reading the words of a man.

But in the course of a day, much reading is undertaken, and I am comparing the quotas of reading. For example, I read many books to assist my improvement in the world of art; sometimes I read a novel; very occasionally I might read a newspaper, and then there are the bills to sort out, catalogues etc. Now if I was to read at least the equivalent number of words in the Bible, it may amount to twenty or so chapters every day, maybe forty chapters.

I used to follow the Murray McCheyne Bible calendar for many years, but alas, I cannot even do that nowadays. The spirit is willing but the flesh gets tired.

Yep, I fully and wholeheartedly agree with all that. And I have argued the point myself on more than one occasion.

The great problem with reading books of men, is that of errancy. When you have the Bible, you have the inerrant word of the living God.

Another great problem is that of elevating men to a position higher than they ought to have. So much so, that theological systems are named after them, even though scripture bans it.

Agreed John. What a sad state of affairs.

In conversion, the Lord does use many means to search out souls.
My concern is that once converted, believers are being urged to read a plethora of books and the Bible does not feature large on the list - if at all!
Once the rule was master your bible and read other books as an aid to master the book. Nowadays however, believers seem to read theology and other Christian books and neglect the Bible. How does that edify anyone?
