Dr. Calvin Beisner

The Cornwall Alliance Dr. Beisner is Founder and National Spokesman of The Cornwall Alliance; former Associate Professor of Historical Theology & Social Ethics, at Knox Theological Seminary, and of Interdisciplinary Studies, at Covenant College; and author of “Where Garden Meets Wilderness: Evangelical Entry into the Environmental Debate” and “Prospects for Growth: A Biblical View of Population, Resources, and the Future.”

A major shakeup is taking place at Moody Bible Institute, one of the oldest and most prestigious Christian Universities in our nation.  Moody’s President and Chief Operations Officer have been fired as the Board of Directors has unanimously called for “new leadership.”  Is this new direction a move away from Moody’s traditional conservative biblical theology or are they trying to address its liberal professors?

Some are claiming Moody, not unlike so many formerly reputable institutions, has strayed from the Word of God, so are they now moving to correct the problem? Moody radio host Julie Roys published an article claiming the University had not been vigilant in rooting out liberal professors and allowing officials to violate Moody’s organizational bylaws “fostering an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.”  Roys was subsequently fired for her remarks with Moody calling them “misleading.”

And in our first segment today we’re joined by Dr. Cal Beisner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to discuss the radical environmental movement and how it might be an affront to God and His Word.
