    Anderson University is doing the same thing. I have known many Christians who go there and have come out Buddhist, Hindu, or Wiccan. Some of the other things I noticed were students coming out believing hell isn’t real, believing in universalism, and preaching Gnostic beliefs.

    I was part of a “Mothers Who Care” prayer group in my town in Ontario, twenty years ago. This is the Canadian counterpart to “Mom’s in Touch”. I am sad to say that after a while I noticed, when they had meetings which included all of the groups in our city, with the director of the organization for Canada speaking, that deceptions from the charismatic movement and NAR/Dominionism were being promoted. Various prayer techniques were encouraged, like marching around the school buildings seven times to “bring the strongholds down”, etc., (there are many more examples I could give of deceptions), I had to leave that group, but not until after I warned the leader. She seemed to agree for a time and be concerned about it, but then refused to accept there was anything wrong.
    It was an ecumenical set up as well. I am not knocking prayer for schools and two or a few agreeing in honest prayer, but I am just sharing what my experience was. That was around the time many deceptions began to come in to the C&MA church I was attending and I had to leave it all behind.

    Lisa, I remember Moms in Touch! 🙂 I was never privileged to be a part of a local group, because there never was one in my area, but I was on their mailing list for a long time and prayed diligently for them and the schools.

    Our family started out with our children in public school, but the spiritual atmosphere was really bad from day one, and a few years later the Lord made the way for us to get our children into Christian school.

    That went well for a few years, then when that went downhill (we learned that Ch. schools can “apostasize” just as churches can), the Lord made the way for us to homeschool, and we never looked back.

    But I always had a great fondness and respect for the moms who would take the time and make the effort to pray for their children’s schools. I’ve been a part of prayer groups in churches and other places (including a homeschool moms’ prayer group) and I know exactly what you’re talking about, how hard it is to get people to commit to regular group prayer. I was always so thrilled to know that Jesus said when it only takes TWO to agree in prayer! 🙂

    We also need to pray for the parents of these students who allow them to go to colleges they have been warned about. Please listen to warnings of your grandparents. We have some wisdom that younger folks do not have. I am praying for 4 of my college-age grandchildren. Parents need to listen, read and be aware of what is going on at college classrooms and campuses. We do not want our precious children and grandchildren graduating as Bible skeptics and atheists. God forbid!

    Sounds like they need a college Mom’s in Touch group too. I think they changed the name to Mom’s in Prayer now…but I was in a one while my kids were in school..but even then (20 years ago) it was hard getting mom’s to pray in a prayer group. They were always too busy with other things and to find a Christian willing to commit to a weekly prayer group was a little tough. However, the one I led..God brought a woman for me to pray with and we prayed the whole year.
    Perhaps they need to go to God in prayer and find out what He would have them do? Perhaps its not a rescue of the college..but a different path?

        Hi CW! Ya, It was really God that answered a prayer of another woman and my own prayer that I joined her prayer group. We were only two. Then she said she was moving and I thought how am I going to keep praying…when God provided me with a prayer partner.

        I could never get more than 3 to stay together and pray, which I think is kind of sad. One woman left the group when I wouldn’t make it a social group and not a prayer group.

        Prayer is such a blessing..don’t look down on doing it alone..God is still listening. God Bless you, Lisa
