“Not many of you should become teachers. As you know, we teachers will be judged with greater strictness than others.” (James 3:1)
What happens in our country’s college classrooms matters. It matters, of course, to the students themselves. It matters to their professors. And it matters, greatly, to the country, whose reins of leadership will be seized tomorrow by today’s students. Without proper formation, these students will have blinded eyes and blighted minds, agents of “the god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4), among the masses ignorantly enthralled at the likelihood of imminent totalitarian democracy.
I tremble at the prospect.
