Understanding the World War of Worldviews Confronting Us Today
Please tune in tonight for the latest From the Frontline podcast on www.FrontlineMissionSA.org, available on http://fromthefrontline.podbean.com/ from 21:00 tonight, Tuesday, 27 November. We will be discussing the world war of worldviews, which is raging particularly on university campuses today. Statistically, 75% of young people from Christian homes who enrol at university stop attending church within four years. If any army was to lose three quarters of its forces, it would not only be considered a defeat – but a disaster!
Universities have not always been the temples of secular humanism and cesspools of moral decadence that they have all too often become today. There was a time when universities were centres of Biblical Reformation and Revival. Many of the greatest Christian Reformers were university professors. This included: Professor John Wycliffe of Oxford; Jan Hus of the University of Prague; Martin Luther of the University of Wittenberg; John Calvin, the Founder of the Academy of Geneva and William Tyndale, the man who translated the Bible into English, was a Graduate of both Oxford and Cambridge. What can we do to reclaim our universities for Christ?
“Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world and not according to Christ.”
