A Tale of Two Talks: Profane Talk Condemning Whites Receives Praise at Wheaton College While Godly, Prolife Talk is Condemned

I knew my alma mater, Wheaton College, was drifting left, but this is shocking even to me. In 2017, Wheaton’s philosophy department sponsored a profane, graphic, and racist speech by George Yancy, a philosophy professor at Emory University.

Do All MBI Professors Affirm Inerrancy? It Depends on Your Definition

Do all the professors at the Moody Bible Institute (MBI) affirm biblical inerrancy? This question has been hotly debated ever since I reported that one of several allegations against the previous administration was that it allowed professors who deny inerrancy to teach at the institute.

            It’s mid-April and my son, like scores of other high school seniors, has less than two weeks to decide which college he’ll attend.  He knows he wants to attend a Christian college – a decision his father and I heartily affirm.              We understand how significantly peers and professors influence students during this time of
