We’ve heard the heartbreaking stories from parents who send their student – faith intact – off to University, only to see those young adults come home with a very different world view that reinvents Jesus, or even brushes Him aside. A huge percentage of young people walk away from anything to do with God as soon as they take their college freshmen courses. The stats are staggering: 75 – 90 percent, depending on which pollster you look at.
Is college really the problem, or is it something else? And how do you prepare your high school grads to safeguard them? And is secular education really any more risky than some of the so-called “Christian” colleges these days? A little later we’ll look at what has happened to some of the Christian seminaries.
Up first we are joined by Jay Seegert, an author, international speaker and co-founder of the Creation Education Center. Jay knows well the attacks on God’s Word, and has been on the front lines shining light of Truth for many years. He is the author of a great resource book titled, Creation & Evolution: Compatible or in Conflict?
Stand Up For The Truth is a radio and online ministry that covers news of the day, trends in the church and theological issues that Christians deal with and talk about every day, and we give you a place to be educated, equipped and connected to help you discern along the way. But most importantly, we point you to Christ Jesus as our Savior, and His Word – the Scriptures, as the truth that you can depend on. In fact, you should filter everything you read, hear and consume as a believer – including what you find on this program – through the Scriptures to see if it lines up.
