According to a statement on Moody Bible Institute’s website, the school is looking for a new president. Michael Easley resigned from the position in May 2008. The statement reads, in part:
The Board of Trustees is committed to this task and excited about finding the person we believe God has already chosen to be our new President … We look forward to input from all who care about the future of the Moody Bible Institute.
As we have stated in past reports, Moody has shown an inclination toward contemplative spirituality. If you are concerned about the future of Moody, please contact them and ask them to choose a president who is aware of the dangers of contemplative spirituality and the emerging church (which would include Purpose Driven and Willow Creek). They have provided the following email address for contact: email@example.com. The fax number is 312-329-4109. Lighthouse Trails has faxed and emailed to Moody Bible Institute the following letter:
Attn: President Search Committee
Moody Bible Institute
August 1, 2008
To whom it may concern,
It has come to our attention that Moody Bible Institute is searching for a new president. As we have reported in the past, we are concerned that Moody might become a contemplative/emerging college. We would like to offer a complimentary copy of A Time of Departing and of Faith Undone to each search committee member, with the hope that a Bible-believing president who is aware of the current apostasy within the church because of these mystical movements is chosen. If Moody were to choose a president that is favorable toward contemplative and/or the emerging church, it could be the spiritual ruin of an institution that has had a strong and trusted reputation for many years. While Lighthouse Trails does not claim to have all the answers, we do believe there is information in these two books that could help equip the search committee in such complex and difficult times in which we live today.
We hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
