A Christian Critique of the University
Charles Malik did research on Christianity and the college campus and had this to say…
“The university is a clear-cut fulcrum with which to move the world. The problem here is for the church to realize that no greater service can it render both itself and the cause of the Gospel, with which it is entrusted, than to try to recapture the universities for Christ on whom they were originally founded. One of the best ways of treating the macrocosm is through the handle of the universities in which millions of youth destined to positions of leadership spend, in rigorous training, between four and ten years of the most formative period of their life. More potently than by any other means, change the university and you change the world.”
I believe this with all my heart! As we minister to the students and faculty on our campus, not only are we impacting our campus but in turn the world. May we all be encouraged and revived in our ministry that our seeming small labors on such a large campus will have world changing effects!
