I recently had a request from a well known ministry that wanted some highlights of Dr. Jay McDaniel and his lecture at Northwest Nazarene University in 2008. Since I spent a bit of time gathering some short clips for them, I decided to re-visit this and put together a more easily viewable summary, rather than suggesting that everyone watch the full 1:15 of the lecture and Q&A session. This summary is 11 minutes, including some brief commentary. This lecture is typical of the kind of brazen way that many of our Christian universities are going forward in welcoming false teaching of every kind; the “New Christianity”, the more “open” Christianity, where all can go to heaven by knowing Jesus within their own religion, without ever knowing it. (Not my father’s faith).
I am reading a book that was sent to me by Bill Rudge of Bill Rudge Ministries. It’s called Not Our Father’s Faith: How Doctrines of Demons Have Invaded The Church. I should be done with it soon, as it is a fascinating and honest look at the state of our Christian faith today. I hope to do a review on it in the near future. I quote him from chapter one:
He goes on to quote Jeremiah 1:10: “See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.”
I believe this quote, and the Scripture, pertains just as strongly and relevant to our Christian universities today as it pertains to the Church.
Please take some time to view this, especially if you have children or grandchildren, or friends who have young children, or you are possibly considering going to a Christian school. From all I have seen and researched, this most likely will be the norm, and not the exception, for college bound Christian students in the near future. Unless enough concerned Christians can help turn the tide, there will be very few “Christian” universities left that you can entrust to give your child a real Christian education. Instead, you will be faced with apostate schools pretending to be Christian, dressed as wolves in sheep’s clothing. As I have said before, young souls are at stake.
