Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Last week I talked about the challenges facing our Christian Colleges. Let me quote briefly what I said;
The combined weapons of accreditation, broadened definitions of anti-discrimination law, and a clear anti-Christian bias are even now forcing colleges to bow to policies that are clearly contrary to Scripture. If they stand their ground they may loose their accreditation, if they conform, they will have lost their reason for existence.
Well it happened. Pepperdine Christian College, a Church of Christ school in California caved to the pressure last month and gave up its Title 9 exemption fully accepting the transgender policies of the Obama administration.
Attorney Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute put it well. He said, “Pepperdine has in essence negated itself as a university committed to Christianity.” Paul said, Having done all to stand, let us stand. Pepperdine did not. Maybe it time to bring training back to the local church where it began.
