In almost every single book in the New Testament, God warns us about false teachers. He commands that we mark and avoid them (Romans 16:17). Colleges and universities are full of false teachers. Most of them are anti-God and teach against His ways. They teach lies. They serve the father of lies (Satan), rather than the King of all kings. I only learn from those who teach and speak Truth, as God commands.
Colleges these days teach Marxist Feminism. Why do you think our culture is in the mess it’s in? Students are taught to hate America and hate our Constitution, along with hating anything to do with godliness. Women are taught to be like men and men are taught to be like women. This is what happens when a culture has been turned over to reprobate minds. There is no truth taught. Mark and avoid these institutions. Don’t send your children to them!
We are warned that bad company corrupts good morals. Universities are full of bad company. The sights and sounds that your children will be exposed to will be horrific. I won’t go into detail, since you all know what’s going on in our culture, but read Romans 1. Many have been turned over to reprobate minds (Romans 1:28). They believe that good is evil and evil is good. They are abandoned to sin and its consequences. Why would any wise parent want their children to be exposed to this? I don’t expose myself to this wickedness!
They are astronomically expensive. Why do you want your hard-earned money to support the evil your children will be taught and see? If you don’t pay for it, your children will be burdened with debt for many, many years. Your daughters will be putting off marriage and having children. If they do have children, they won’t be able to raise them.
Most jobs don’t require a college education. The majority of college graduates don’t even use their degree for a job. Going to college has become a right of passage for Americans these days. It’s not! Many have never gone to college and are doing great in life. If you have a son who wants to be something that requires a college education, try to get him into a solid Bible believing and teaching college like Master’s College. In this way, you’ll be supporting a godly institution which values God and His Word.
What about the salt and light argument? One doesn’t need to spend a boat load of money they don’t have to learn from false teachers in order to be salt and light. We can be salt and light without doing these things. We can be salt and light with our neighbors, with people we meet in life, and any opportunity that presents itself. God doesn’t command we financially support wickedness in order to be salt and light. The risk is too great. Too many children who were raised in Christian homes walk away from their faith in college.
Have women going to college made them more feminine, more godly, better wives and mothers? Has it made them more loving, kinder, sacrificial, and more willing to serve others? Has it made them discreet with meek and quiet spirits, encouraged them to be chaste, or anything else that God commands of women? No. It has done none of these, unless they have gone to a small handful of solid Christian colleges that actually teach biblical womanhood. Most colleges and universities teach women to be the opposite of these.
Please read and study 2 Corinthians 6:14-18. God is very clear about being yoked together with unbelievers. Heed His warnings. We are to dwell on the honest and the good. Universities are the opposite of being honest, pure, and good (Philippians 4:8).
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14
