Jesus said that all whom the Father gave to Him would come to Him and nobody would pluck them out of His hand.

Also, how is this any different from the false prophets God sent among the people in Old Testament times, to weed them out?

Do Christians need Colleges or Careers when God promises to fulfill our physical needs while we seek His Kingdom and righteousness?

Yes, Jesus said "nobody would pluck them out of His hand." However, although you can't lose your salvation, you can leave it--which is the gist of this article. People can decided that Christianity isn't for them and get easily seduced by the secular world. I feel that the Christians that are most vulnerable are the ones that are part of a legalist type of Christianity--the ones that still preach works + faith = salvation.

The work was done on the Cross; there's nothing left for us to do. Any works we try to do to merit salvation only cheapens the work Jesus did for us. People who try to "earn" their salvation will quickly become discouraged and despondent and those are the ones who will be attracted to secular campuses.

Kids today need to understand and read the Bible to know that being a true Christian means freedom. It means being alive and not saddled with laws. Once people realize that, they avoid things not because they should, but because they want to please God as a thank you for all He's done. There's a big difference.

John, you say, "you can't lose your salvation, you can leave it--which is the gist of this article"

But Scripture says, "Whatever is Born of God, overcomes the world".
I John 5:4

Also, what about II Corinthians 6:14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Shouldn't Christians avoid these situations, making the entire campaign to hedge against it unnecessary?

Please call me if you are interested in bringing a college age Christian worldview curriculum to your home, Bible study or church. I have recently become the west coast Anchorsaway director. Email me at [email protected] or call 541-410-7703. We are losing our next generation to secularism. Let's teach our young people why Christianity makes sense, is reasonable, and how to explain why they believe what they believe with love and respect. Let's explain to the youth what ideologies they will come up against and help them have confidence in how to have articulate conversations with professors, co-workers, and friends.
