Student Body President at Northwest Christian University Denounces Christian Faith, Declares Himself Atheist
The president of the student body at Northwest Christian University publicly announced that he has been a longtime atheist despite his enrollment at the Oregon-based college and is now urging Christians to practice what they preach by becoming accepting of those who do not fit their same "pattern."
Eric Fromm, 21, published an article last week in his school's news website as his way of denouncing his former Christian beliefs. He says he was an atheist before enrolling as a student but decided to attend the 600-student university because of his interest in its communication program.
"I was baptized Lutheran, and raised Methodist, but as time went on I slowly came to the conclusion that God wasn't real," Fromm wrote in his article. "I knew that the school catered to Christian thinking, so before I enrolled, I visited the campus to make sure that the chapel services were comfortable enough that I...

What great comments by all; well except for one. Now my guess is that very few women that graduate from colleges, Christian or non-Christian have the primary goal of being a Christian wife and mother. So, I would have to strongly agree with Lady Virtue and her thought that college can be especially harmful to Christian women. Even those Christian women who have degrees and have the goal of being a wife and mother often donât do nearly as well in that walk because of the choices they have been given. They can walk away when things get tough because they have viable alternatives (the feminist agendas). In Christian colleges, they have learned much of their theology from their professors instead of from scriptures and their husbands which could also be a hindrance to their Christian walk. Sorry for the rambling, but I did really appreciate many of the thoughts that were written.
Quote from article; "Although he no longer believes in God, he hopes that others will not see him as a person who embraces antitheism, which is the belief that religion is harmful to society, and he assures people that he continues to respect the Christian faith.""
He never did believe in God.
He can't "respect the Christian faith" his dominant master sin will not allow him. Anyway the reprobate wouldn't know Christian faith from a plastic duck.
Mortals in the natural estate cannot discern spiritual matters .... "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1Cor 2:14.
His deceit in going to a specifically Christian university and hiding behind the pretext of a faith illustrates who he belongs to - the father of lies.
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44.
Jesus declares; "He that is not with me is against me" Matt 12:30.

Very well said. College is one of the most expensive and overrated cons there is. Too many professing Christian parents have bought the world's script that they MUST send their children there, presumably to get a good job and make a lot of money. College is an especially dangerous environment for females, as they are susceptible to feminist indoctrination. It all boils down to serving Mammon as one's master and the love of money. I wish I'd never gone, myself.
I remain unimpressed by atheist thinking: âI considered Jesus to be a 'great moral teacher' but not God.â
What claim is more bold than that of being God? If Jesus was mistaken here, then how could He be a great teacher about lesser matters? And I'd like to know what the punishment is, by atheist stds., for being intolerant of atheists. A sin is pointless w/o a punishment for it.
From NCU's site: âWe welcome students who have no faith commitment or are from other faith commitments.â
In the Methodist church, that has strayed so far from the truth of the gospel, that even some pastors no longer believe. I know because I attended one for a short time..they do not believe in the inerrant word of God..I listened to miracles explained away by the pastor..he stood in the pulpit and said Jesus was not really born of a virgin. So how could a child raised in that kind of preaching have any faith at all.I had toleave because I did not want them taught something that was so full of lies. My kiids were taught by me but I also wanted a church that was on the same page as me. My son went to college and never lost his faith..he is a nurse anethiastist ( puts people to sleep ).
This sounds like a precurser to what is coming next. He will say he is bullied, discriminated against and bring the legal team in his situation. Perfect setup for a financial gain. He planned this from the beginning on the day he enrolled.
He had to check out chapel to make sure it was comfortable? Translation... " I had to make sure God wasn't present, so I can keep lying to myself and maybe try and take some weak ones down with me". Student body president? Truthfully I don't want my kids to go to college. It's a breeding ground for worldly pride. Yes.. Even the Christian ones now a days.
Stories like this are always shocking to me because I just can't imagine doing a 180 on God line this guy and so many others have done. I would say that throughout his life, he was only a Christian by name, never having the spirit, so I hope that he will come to his senses before it's too late. Anyway, the ones that really get me scratching my head are the long time preachers who announce one day, after 20, 30, 40yrs of living and preaching Christ, that they no longer believe. Whenever I read stories of these men denouncing their faith and announcing that God is not real, I'm left stunned.
