    I graduated from Westmont in 1982, and was an acquaintance of Diana’s and her brother. I cannot speak to where her path took her, but as far as I know, the whole Progressive “Christian” movement began to pick up steam around the time she began her post graduate journey.
    At the time, to the best of my recollection, she seemed fairly orthodox, but no one truly knows what is transpiring below the surface besides the Lord.
    I am sure this may seem too simplistic a thought or insight, but this gradual journey down a theological “slippery slope” begins with a low view of Scripture and a lack of true, diligent study of the Bible. That is where many have turned the corner into a divergent path away from orthodoxy.

    There’s a slight error in mentioning her publications: “Strength for the Journey” was not published in 1979.

    The presidents of these so-called Christian colleges will have to answer to Jesus the Righteous Judge for leading unsuspecting students down the wrong, unbiblical paths.

    All schools of so called “higher learning” have been weaponized against true biblical Christianity and those that know God’s end times warnings would have known this and would not spend money to pay for the indoctrination of their children.

    You might want to start by asking the Lord to forgive you for sending your child to this school in the first place and accept responsibility for putting your child in harms way.

    Being honest and upfront with the Lord is the first thing you will want to do among other things found in scripture concerning interceding for the lost such as…

    1) Matthew 12:29
    “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.”

    We should bind the devil from working in their lives, and take authority over the enemy. In Luke 10:19 Jesus said “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power (authority) of the enemy”. Jesus has given us authority to take authority over the enemy. We must exercise our authority by speaking out these scriptures against the enemy. God’s Word MUST be declared over them in faith continually, and consistently if you ever expect to see the person(s) you’re praying for come to Jesus.

    2) Matthew 16:19
    “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

    Declare (outloud) in faith that you are binding the devil’s ability to work in their lives, and declare (outloud) in faith that the person you are praying for is loosed from the control of the devil and all carnal influences of darkness in the world.

    3) Mark 16:17
    “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues”.

    Demand (outloud) in faith that you are casting the devil out of their life! Jesus has given us power and authority to do this, and He will see to it that this is carried out if we don’t give up and quit standing on this promise.

    4) 2 Corinthians 10:4,5
    For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

    Speaking God’s Word (promises of freedom) over someone’s life is mighty through God for getting the results of pulling down strongholds (enemy activity) in people’s lives.

    5) Luke 10:2
    Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. (Also see: Matthew 9:38)

    Declare (outloud) in faith that labourers (witnesses of the Gospel) are continually coming into their lives to declare…

    I am a Westmont grad from the early 70s, and, with my husband, a Multnomah University alum as well. I grew up at a church closely associated with Multnomah when its slogan was: “If you want Bible, you want Multnomah”. But no longer. We live near the school and have seen the apostasy firsthand. It breaks our hearts. Westmont was beginning to crack while I was there. Most of the older faculty were still OK but the administration was caving to vocal students who were very rebellious, especially towards the Christian stance of the school. We sent a daughter to Trinity Western University in Langley BC in 2000, back when I still believed printed doctrinal statements. She went from respecting the word of God and loving her parents to becoming a radical socialist activist who excises out of her life anyone who doesn’t support her current values, including us. I don’t know of any of her friends from there who haven’t followed the same path, either becoming indifferent to, or antagonistic towards, biblical Christianity. She goes to a social justice episcopal church. My niece, a pastor’s daughter, went to Texas Christian University, graduating around 2006. She became a Unitarian a few years ago. The daughter of my husband’s boss is an enthusiastic Biola grad. She is also a shaven head goth who spoke at her grandfather’s funeral of calling up his spirit and having a lovely visit with him over a glass of wine! We pray for their salvation. I believe the reason our other children still walk with the Lord is because they eschewed college (and debt) for other kinds of career training. The Lord is blessing them.
