Wheaton College Relaxes Strict Conduct Code


Wheaton College

A cultural revolution is under way in the far west suburbs: Wheaton College students, long banned by a strict code of conduct from smoking, drinking or having sex, won a long-sought privilege this week.

They can dance.

Faculty members and graduate students, bound by a similar code of conduct, have been granted some added privileges, too. For what's believed to be the first time in the 143-year history of the evangelical Christian school, perhaps best known for being the alma mater of the Rev. Billy Graham, they are now allowed to drink alcohol and smoke.

That is, as long as they do those things only off-campus and, in the case of drinking, only outside the presence of undergrads. ...

I do not see anywhere in scriptures that Christ comprised Himself or Heavenly Father. When one takes one step, it generally leads to another. For some one drink is too much. Others drink to excess and think they are still sober,even though they stagger a bit and have slurred speech. What if Christ had chosen to comprise the cross, where would we be today. Hell is paved with many roads of good intentions. Some people just do not have a strong will to do what is right. thank you ruby

Mr Perry,

No, smoking isn't spoken of directly in scripture, but it does tell us that our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit and we shouls treat it as such (1 Corinthians chapters 3 and 6).

And as to drinking: "Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixes wine. LOOK NOT THOU UPON THE WINE WHEN IT IS RED, WHEN IT GIVETH HIS COLOUR IN THE CUP, WHEN IT MOVETH ITSELF ARIGHT." (Proverbs 23:29-31)

"WOE UNTO HIM THAT GIVETH HIS NEIGHBOUR DRINK, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also...!" (Habakkuk 2:15)

"It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. GIVE STRONG DRINK UNTO HIM THAT IS READY TO PERISH...." (Proverbs 31:4-6)

You are correct in stating that evangelicals (and the ecumenical movement, I might add) haved moved great men of God and great churches of God into the realm of liberalism over the past few decades. In my comment I was eluding to the fact that one comprimise only leads to another -- and another and another and another. We might only now be seeing the effects of compromise which took root many years ago....

Trish, let's be careful about how we claim that the demise of Wheaton is starting; I'd agree strongly with Mr. Kinshella that the start was not allowing drinking & smoking (neither banned by Scripture), but by the compromises made over the past 50 years by evangelicals.

To wit, I'd suggest that far more crucial elements would be the writing of creeds to accept more and more churches and the failure to teach the history that led to the fundamentalist (and evangelical) split from mainline (i.e. liberal) churches.

I wouldn't be too proud to drop the name "Rev. Billy Graham", it is tainted with compromise, so this isn't a surprise, in fact the whole evangelical community has compromised the gospel to please the world, so let them be...
