Running to Win at University of Destruction

Guest: John Stewart, International Director, Ratio Christi

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. Colossians 2:8

It may be hard to believe but there was a time when the university campus was a place where Truth was sought and taught, where God and His Word were venerated. Elite colleges such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Oxford all had strong Christian underpinnings.

That is certainly not the case today. The college campus is the intellectual hub for all things God-rejecting in our society, from moral relativism to religious and ideological pluralism. The humanistic worldview that overwhelmingly characterizes the professors and administrators is passed on to malleable students who populate the classrooms and dorm rooms.

Is it any wonder why such a high percentage of teenagers who grow up in Christian families and churches go off to college and walk away from the faith they once professed? So, what to do about it?

John Stewart, international director for Ratio Christi, a Christian apologetics organization on many campuses, will be our guest this weekend to talk about the challenges on campus for Christians and how to prepare the student in your life to run to win at the University of Destruction.
