All videos -One example of how not to respond is the way I handled such teaching as a junior high student. In one class, we were taught about anthropology and the archaeology of the area—dating back tens of thousands of years ago. As a way of “taking a stand” for God’s Word, my best friend and I both intentionally answered such questions “incorrectly” on our next test, earning us grades well below what we normally received. 

Looking back, I realize there were two main problems with my approach. First, answering test questions incorrectly did nothing to show my peers that I did not accept millions of years—I did not actually “give a defense” of Christianity (1 Peter 3:15). Second, I did not demonstrate to my teacher that I was actually educated about the issue.

While he perhaps guessed (based on my coursework the rest of the year) that my poor performance was intentional, I never bothered discussing the issue with him.Another example came years later, in college, when I took a course on evolution. This time I only committed one of my two earlier mistakes. The good news is that I was vocal in my course, doing my best to challenge the one-sided, Darwinian interpretations of the facts given and arguing as a creationist when our class debated the history of life. 

The bad news is that I became frustrated with the course as a whole (convinced that I was hearing only biased dogma, not real science), and consequently stopped attending midway through the term. My grades suffered appropriately, and I barely passed the course.In this case, my peers and teachers (the course had three) certainly knew I was a creationist. But my guess is that in their eyes (based on my performance on tests), I really did not understand the science underlying evolutionary views. 

Perhaps I helped further stereotypes they may have held about creationists not understanding science or being poor thinkers.These two examples suggest what creationists should not do in class: intentionally answering questions incorrectly without explaining why, or vocally defending creation but failing to demonstrate understanding of a topic. This brings us back to the question of what creationist students should do. 7th day adventist theology,7th day adventist theology,7th day adventist theology, university seventh day adventist church, adventist website, online bible study degree, biblical studies online, online biblical studies, biblical studies, bible studies online, onlinebible, bible videos, the bible online, the end is near, 7th day adventist theology, university seventh day adventist church, adventist website, online bible study degree, biblical studies online, online biblical studies, biblical studies, bible studies online, onlinebible, bible videos, the bible online, the end is near,
