Same-sex relationships are now, again, permitted on campus
A Christian university has once again lifted a ban on same-sex relationships on its campus, several months after re-instating the ban after it had initially been lifted in the late summer of last year.
Azusa Pacific University “specifically removed language that barred LGBTQ relationships as part of a standing ban on pre-marital sex” from its student handbook, The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports.
The school had previously removed the ban at the beginning of last semester. But the Board of Trustees declared that it had “never approved this removal,” and the ban was subsequently re-instated. Campus officials at the time couldn’t explain how the ban had been lifted without the approval of the Board of Trustees. Click here to continue reading.
1 Kings 18:21 “Then Elijah approached all the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him. But if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people did not answer a word.”
And that’s why, with all respect, we should not run after men/women and their things. Here today, in darkness tomorrow. Jesus is the unchanging Light of the world; His true followers are also called to be light and salt. Let’s do it; time is running out like airtime and data on a faulty mobile.
Christian colleges are caving to pressure from liberal, non-biblical groups. Very saddened to see this happening. Colleges that are biblical and safe for students are becoming rare and hard to find. When I have questioned them about their stance on gay or gender issues I have received no response.
