Last night on the FHSU campus following a back to school picnic Celebration’s College Ministry “Encounter” showed the movie “God’s Not Dead”. I am so proud of them for doing so because there is a great need to counterbalance the Anti-Christian sentiments on most college campuses. A study of faculty members at U.S. colleges and universities revealed that 84% support abortion rights, and 75% support extramarital cohabitation. Fewer than 33% described themselves as regular churchgoers. 67% of faculty members either “strongly” or “somewhat” agree that homosexuality is as acceptable as heterosexuality.
Church & Culture’s James Emory White says, “Some years ago when the Kansas Board of Education approved new science standards for teachers in public schools that questioned Charles Darwin’s teachings on evolution (merely allowing the idea of “intelligent design” to be discussed), the director of the National Center for Science Education responded, “Those kids are in for a big shock when they go to college, because they’re going to learn that what they had been taught by their teachers in high schools is a lot of rubbish”.
Little wonder that cultural observers from Christian perspectives, such as the late Charles Colson, who before his death offered the following concern: “With the ever-increasing number of college professors who use their classrooms to indoctrinate students, rather than educate them, the views expressed and the lack of viewpoint diversity is deeply disturbing.”
Please pray that the message in the movie and the truth of God’s word will flood over our campus and other college campuses throughout our nation to compensate for the indoctrination our young people are getting to turn away from the Bible, church and God Himself. GOD’S NOT DEAD. Let everyone you know hear that truth from you.
