Truly, some college professors are there to teach and they are doing a good job. I have studied under many such professors. My older children have had the benefit of several well-qualified and dedicated faculty. However, we all labor under the weight of a college system encumbered by foolish, ancient philosophies. Some professors revel in these erroneous notions with an air of superiority, attempting to intimidate, claiming powers of influence over our children. I laugh at them. My children laugh at them.
They think they wield the power of ideas that will humiliate me and snatch my children from me. They have no concept of the Power of the God we serve, the one true living God. They have given themselves over to a proud delusion and think they can easily disorient real Christians from the Truth. Ha! They deserve no quarter because they have openly defied Him, thinking I, the Christian am on the defensive. They should be cowering at the feet of their Maker. I and mine are in His hand, strong and joyful.
From the beginning of time, all like them have been fighting a losing battle. They and the-father-of-lies strain at worldly dominance, gleefully making motions of throwing off so-called bondage of following God Almighty. They are like toddlers who have recently discovered they can say, “No!” and imagine just saying it gives them some sort of honor. In every age, they think their ideas are new and enlightened, not seeing that it is all a rehash of the same old whopper. They want to be gods. Unfortunately, they can never account for life and they can never give it any substantial meaning. They conjecture that by convincing others of the same emptiness, it validates it. Okay, let’s just all jump over the cliff. At least we’ll be together.
There may be statistics they have come up with about what happens to a person’s “faith” in college, but they, having no grasp on the Truth, may have failed to understand the results of such research. Certainly, they have misunderstood the nature of the One True God and what it means to follow Him. We are not a political group, based on man-made ideologies. We are not a social club easily disturbed by posturing bullies. We are not at all an institution invented to propagate self-serving religious ideas. Our children know this.
We do not tremble or shrink back from discussion of ideas, but there is no reason for us to take seriously the arguments of those whose most foundational tenet is that there is no God as shown in the Bible. They only seek to comfort their own pride, dressing up their refusal-to-believe-in-actualities in a myriad of guesses about life. Our children are well-prepared to filter the fabrications from the facts. We are the real Christians and I’m pretty sure they are not ready for us.
