WATCHING THE SKY FOR BRIMSTONE, SANTEE — "It's not complicated," says Second Baptist Church of Santee Pastor T. Rebel Swiftsword, explaining his opposition to the Light & Life Foundation's decision to keep its Creation Museum & Tabernacle Theater open seven days a week. "It's right there in Scripture, Exodus 20, verses 9 and 10. 'Six days shall you labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.' And do you know why God said we ought to rest on the Sabbath? Because of what it says in Genesis 2, verse 3: 'Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating he had done.' The good people at the Creation Museum know about the six days of creation. I mean, telling the world the truth about the God's world as it is revealed in Scripture is their whole mission! Pardon my language, but I have to wonder just what the heck it is they're thinking here."
Reached for comment, Light & Life Foundation CFO Shepherd Fleece said, "It's all about the money, boys!"
