However, as you aspire in academics, it behooves you to keep the Bible as your foundation, lest your faith in Jesus Christ fails, for there is an atheistic agenda being pushed in our public schooling system. Skepticism, becoming "critical thinkers", "enlightening" one's self-- these are all keywords that are the basis of higher education. In reality, such catch phrases are in opposition to Faith and, in essence, are Anti-Christ ideas.
3 things Christian College Students should know
2. Colleges want students to be skeptics, yet they want you to accept their curriculum as fact, without critique. This contradiction first occurred to me when I took English 101 - "Critical Thinking" and has been affirmed in every class I've taken since. Certain theories they teach as fact--so-called "pre-history" that is nothing more than conjecture in history classes; pseudo-science such as Evolution or Big Bang theory without mention of any other counter theory such as intelligent design, etc.; and even the origins of so-called "morality" in literature classes without considerable refection on the Bible. The list goes on and on. Ironically, an occasional professor here and there would become frustrated with my un-conforming opinion during class discussions on such matters (perhaps I've become too critical of a thinker).
3. There is a deliberate focus on eastern religion in the context of "how similar" they are to Christianity. During my college experience, I have studied religions such as Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, etc. in great detail. I've even had exam on how these religions compare to Christianity. However, there is usually little to no information about Christianity itself in our text books. Apparently Christianity can be summed up within a paragraph. At any rate, the idea behind the comparison is this: all religions are essentially the same and they all serve the same purpose. This too is false.
Work hard this semester and do well!
