Willems writes, "WELS schools need to teach the science of the twentieth century in a Christian setting before our students begin living in the twenty-first century where science, embracing evolution, humanism, and self-centered hedonism may become more and more a part of their lives. We should not want to graduate students who fail to see God's handiwork in his creation. We have failed our students if we do not teach the science that is accepted today or if we fail to teach our students that all science changes."
"Concern with biblical chronology is an indispensable and unavoidable task in the study of the Bible. ...But Ussher’s conclusions do not square with what we know about Bible genealogies. A careful study makes it clear that these were intended not so much to provide a complete listing of all descendants as to list the more important members of the line."
