Please, feel free to explore our website. Below you will find the motivation behind every one of our posts, as well as the reason we feel it’s important for this blog to exist.
What Lions Are You Talking About?
Generally speaking, lions are perceived to be ferocious beasts who aggressively demolish defenseless victims in order to fulfill their feline cravings. Based on this perception, it is of little wonder that the ultimate enemy of humankind has been portrayed as a lion for over a thousand years. In c.63 A.D., the Apostle Peter addressed the early church warning:
“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
The ruler of this world has gathered unto himself a devoted army of followers spreading a tailored message of lies against God prepared for your own personal destruction. It is in the confines of familiar day-to-day life that the Father of Lies wages war. Only one means of resistance exists: God’s truth. The king of this present age has no power over the King of Kings (Rev. 19:16). It was Christ himself who fought the devil’s lies with God’s truth in the wilderness. Let us then as ambassadors of Christ and soldiers in the His army combat the flaming missiles of the Devil with the truth that has its origination with the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
Where’s This Den Located?
The “Lion’s Den” refers to any institution on earth which is diametrically opposed to God. We here at “roarnomore.blogspot.com” want to specifically focus on those institutions to which college age individuals find themselves susceptible. According to the Apostle John, the world system (A network of philosophies opposing God’s truth) consists of “the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.” College professors, emergent church leaders, television personalities, etc., have successfully crafted a worldview which leaves the Creator out, and in its vacuum placed the very substitutions John warned us about. Those of us who call ourselves Christian are walking into the Lion’s Den almost every day, whether it’s school, work, or even church! Most of the material we put forth will be designed particularly to assist young Christians in the large and powerful den known as “college.”
The Mission: A Christian Worldview
College: an environment for learning, a haven of free thinking, and a forum for the open discussion of relevant life topics among like minded peers; at least, that is what it should be! Sadly, most colleges have become just the opposite!
Educational institutions are fast becoming merely factories, churning out cloned copies of teachers pushing a disgruntled worldview. Mainstream social fads replace what was once solid, concrete truth; and what once offered a pool of knowledge is boiling away into an effervescence steam of postmodernism.
Often, students find themselves overwhelmed. It is hard enough to speak up when out numbered in a classroom setting, but often our lack of overall knowledge can make things intimidating. Here we are, supposedly to learn and yet, we more often find ourselves devoting much time defending our points of view.
This is where, hopefully this blog can come into play. In addition to sharing personal college experiences, we will try to take many of the controversial topics often discussed in a classroom setting and break them down into what we feel are key premises and basic arguments, offering facts and incites for consideration from a Biblical Christian perspective; hopefully all the while still giving consideration to all viewpoints involved.
