Seventh-day Adventist world Church president Dr Ted Wilson strongly affirmed the Church’s position that God is the Creator of the universe, as he opened a conference for senior Adventist educators in St George, Utah.
In his remarks, Dr Wilson emphasised the importance of careful study of the creation accounts in Scripture and called for Seventh-day Adventist educators to support the evidence for a literal understanding of Genesis 1-11, including acceptance of a short chronology and a global flood.
