08/02/07 - College Students

So how many of you are getting ready to go back to college?

This spring I heard a fabulous speaker, Voddie Bachman. He is one of those speakers that has you on the edge of your seat and you're wanting him to go on and on!

The message that has stuck with me was a message about the culture war we, as Christian's, have to fight. There were three main points. Although, I think we all have to fight these cultural wars, I believe Christian college students have to face it everyday.

1) The new tolerance: being intolerant of intolerance. Which is being intolerant! This new tolerance says that we need to accept all people, no matter their lifestyle. Yes, I believe we must love as Christ love, but it doesn't mean we accept the sin that people are living in. This thought is used a lot in the homosexual movement. That Christians need to be more tolerant of homosexuals. Yes, we must love homosexuals, but we must not be tolerant of their sin.

2) Religious relativism:all paths lead to God. So all paths are leading to God. Along this line of thinking is that: "What's good for me is good for me and what's good for you, is good for you."

3) There are no absolutes, which in and of itself is an absolute! So if there is one, how many more can there be?

Just some food for thought; you may have to battle these cultural wars if you are headed off to college.
