I agree Jim, men should be told to keep their shirts on, problem solved.
" It started with one woman asking, "If men can go topless, why can't women?"
"It's sexist because it specifically discriminates against female breasts," Brittiany Hoagland said in 2015." I wonder if she's paid to be that stupid or she is really that stupid. I predict increased:
" We are dealing with an educational setting, not a church." This is the thing that bakes my noodle, they are all part of the church! All believers are part of the body of Christ, you cannot separate the child of God from the church, the individual members of that university are part of the church, except the tares in there.
" The negatives are balanced against the positives because as in any decision in life there is no perfect take." The negative includes a staff that consists of people, willing to cover up rape? And how do you balance this out, what scales did you use? Seriously, how'd you determine it's balanced?
As far as colleges: IRC, West Coast, Baptist College (California) Ambassador Baptist College (North Carolina) Heartland Baptist Bible College (OKC)
Read Adam Clarke's commentary on Daniel chapt. 1, the external is almost worthless, internal holiness is great gain. C.S. Lewis was concerned that the schools were creating people with no passion or conviction, filled with facts but not heart, I'm afraid of the same thing.
A couple times I have been accused of things by you and ugh, which is strange, I wouldn't think ad hominem attacks were needed, anyway here's one
" Nevertheless, you chose to handle the pen by the wrong end when indiscriminately lashing out isolated negativism at the expense of the university obvious overall positivism, which in the end is the core promoting character, growth, stability, knowledge and development."
The Bible says, Be ye angry and sin not, I think someone should be angry to what they have done, your philosophy seems to be, "Ignore the negative, accept the positive." Well, I won't drink the kool ade, interesting how you never mentioned things like convictions or holiness, it is dangerous to manufacture creatures filled with facts and no convictions.
I'll stand by my guns, it is disgusting what they have done, would you want a church or family run like they have?
Ugh I can't believe you according to your latter post, and unless they took the Klan member names down with the new leadership, they're still there. Show me an area of where I'm wrong, don't use generalizations, be specific.
McCausland, to reenact the crucifixion of Jesus seems highly blasphemous in my totally humble, honest, unbiased and correct opinion, and to have paintings that make Jesus look like a homosexual, seems unacceptable.
I'm glad you referred to it as a family, the body of Christ is a family, If you feel that it's okay to sweep a rape incident under the rug without apologizing to the church, that's strange, and really the interracial thing should be apologized for to the church at the least.
It's cowardly, prideful, and hypocritical not to say, "We were wrong." Pretending that it never happened, that's not right, that's disgusting, and a blot to the name of Jesus.
I checked BJU out, thought about going, I don't know what you mean by ethos of the era, but they look like queers, Jesus didn't look like a hippe from San Francisco so why paint Him as such and even allow the Romanish paintings on campus?
I've heard that the rules are pretty legalistic, that the authorities (teachers and such) focus more on telling people what they did wrong, than what they do right, that's not a good teaching technique.
" While being a university, and not exclusively a Bible College, obviously classes may not always include direct Bible lessons, though biblical perspective is endorsed." Is that giving the okay for blasphemous plays?
I cannot endorse a University that covered up a rape, never publicly apologized (to my knowledge) about interracial marriage, has Klan member names on the doors, has blasphemous plays, etc.
From what I've heard, BJU is not an "excellent school" it seems to me like a money making business (at worse) or a really misguided college (at best) I've heard that they've still got Klan names on the doors (from years and years ago) the rules are legalistic, they've plays that are blasphemous, classes that have nothing to do with the Bible, etc.
Please show me where I'm wrong, Mr (or Mrs. Or Miss) ugh, your comment would mean I shouldn't trust what you said. I believe everything I've said is in accordance to reality, B. McCausland, where have I said wrong? I'm willing to listen.
Hmmm, on 9/11 Muslim hijackers drove 2 planes into the twin towers. Now while the towers were on fire, people, who were trapped, jumped out of the towers and died, their bodies splattered, I've unfortunately seen pictures of it.
Next time something like that happens, well have pope Francis be the one of 1. Cleaning the bodies up. 2. Telling the families that there's no such thing as Muslim terrorism. How's that sound? Maybe it'll convince him there's Muslim terrorism.
As far as I'm aware of, they never publicly apologized for the interracial marriage rule, they covered up a rape incident at their university, they bought paintings worth millions of dollars that are Catholic like (you know the types where it seems everyone is a homosexual...all the guys are feminine looking)
I'm very suspicious at this bible college, if I want to do a 4 year bachelor's degree it would be $100,000...doesn't that seem suspicious with all that was said?
I don't pass out any anti abortion tracts that I'm aware of, and I'm not paying for people who are reaping the results of careless living, that's not the country's job nor the citizen's job, show me in the constitution where the citizens should pay for other people's life choices.
Universal healthcare is insanity in logic, ex. Herman lives his life not taking his vitamins or eating healthy, he smokes and drinks, and does weed then he reaps the consequences, and I'm supposed to pay for his idiocy? Why do I have to pay for his mistakes?
You have to understated that abortion is treason against God, it is sin, it is murder, it is complete opposition against God's law, I'm not trying to change the culture, I want both the mother, father, the child and brothers and sisters to be saved.
Take the CSE class by Kent Hovind, you can watch them on YouTube on JesusLostChildren 777 channel. 50 classes, or you can buy it from Kent's website, 2Peter 3.com, it'll come with the quizzes and other stuff.
If anything this Darwin day will be great for evangelism.
For my fellow brothers and sisters, there's a ligonier conference in LA coming up a couple months, I won't be able to make it but thought I'd give you a head's up, I think it's a two day thing, check it out on ligoniers website.
I think it's $95, but if you register early it'll be $75
