In recent years there has been a growing trend for young people in the Lord's church to attend "Christian" universities when they go off to college. It is the feeling of many that such "Christian" universities are "safer" than sectarian schools and will help promote Bible principles. It is out of deep concern for the welfare of many souls and the future of the Church that I urge people to consider the following quotes from men such as N. B. Hardeman, W. W. Otey, G. H. P. Showalter, and J. N. Armstrong concerning the "Christian" colleges in the 1930's-1950's. These preachers believed Bible colleges were Scriptural in nature (I disagree; the Scriptures neither imply, mention, nor approve of such innovations) yet they had great concerns about "Church of Christ Colleges" such as David Lipscomb University, Harding University, Abilene Christian College, and others. The concerns these preachers had about "Christian" colleges paled in comparison to the reality of what is now being taught in each of these universities.
