LTRP Note: After you read this article about the dilemma in which Canada’s Trinity Western University finds itself, you can read about the history of Trinity Western University’s fight to have a law school in Canada and yet still maintain that marriage is between a man and a woman here. Also worth noting, TWU is listed as a contemplative/emerging Christian college on the Lighthouse Trails college list. While they say they are trying to maintain biblical integrity regarding marriage, they fail to understand that by directing students toward the contemplative, emerging, progressive lifestyle, they are ultimately leading them away from biblical integrity. Not only that, but the contemplative camp has traditionally been lenient toward the homosexual lifestyle, and that leniency, as we are seeing in America, leads to an acceptance of same-sex marriage. TWU has one foot in one camp and the other foot in another, and it will never work. It is a house divided against itself.
