As a 18 year old boy soon to be facing the world of college, I find this article by Agape Press very interesting. This article speaks about the alarming amount of teens that enter college as Christians and leave as atheists. This is positively scary. As a friend of mine put it:
"College will either make you or break you spiritually"
and I believe him. A secular college can be a beehive of liberal and atheist thought for a fresh-from-high-school home educator. So what is a young Christian to do?
Well, let me see.
1. You can attend a Christian college.
2. You can attend a secular college but live at home and avoid much after class mishmash. But that really doesn't help with the liberal atheistic teachers, so you must...
3. Study the Bible, history and science so much beforehand that you can refute the guy with the doctorate degree.
4. Not attend college.
Hmm well, what's a guy to do? I had thought of attending ECU near my home here in Oklahoma, but after finding out that one of the political science teachers is gay, I started to look for other options. I have always loved the thought of going to Patrick Henry College, but that is thousands of miles from home and that would put me seeing friends and family here only on holidays.
For more of my thoughts on college please see this post. It includes a list of colleges I am looking at and the pro's and con's of each. Have a look!
After that, let me ask you guys a question or two. What do you guys think about college? What are your plans? What do you see your self doing in 5-10 years? Please leave me a comment and let me know.
