Educators advised: Stand against darkness, for truth

'Progressive' ChristianityA Christian educator has a challenge to the Christian college presidents, administrators, and faculty who recently gathered in Newberg, Oregon for the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities' third annual Diversity Conference.

Many American Christian institutes of higher learning are finding a tension between the orthodox faith of their founders and donors and the "woke" culture from which their students come. So the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities invited administrators and faculty from its membership to a seminar on diversity where they talked about, among other things, how to not be so white.

Christian apologist and former college president Alex McFarland says they are treading on thin ice.

"It's so easy to recast Jesus in light of our own times and through our own current lenses," he admits. "In the 1960s, people tried to make the socialist Jesus, and the communist Jesus, and the black liberation Jesus. Nowadays, people want to create the diverse, politically correct, progressive Jesus."

But he points out that none of those is the Jesus of the Bible.

"Jesus was the real inclusivist in the sense that he said, 'Whosoever will may come to Christ and be born again,'" McFarland notes. "However, Jesus was definitely an exclusivist in that he said in John 8:24, 'If you do not believe that I am He, the Son of God, you will die in your sins.'"

He continues to point out that the Bible contains some decidedly politically incorrect truths.

"I want to call on Christian educators everywhere to courageously stand against the darkness of this hour and for the truth of God's Word," McFarland implores. "Homosexuality is a sin. Trandgenderism is false. Abortion is murder."
