Our Universities in More Recent Years

Charles Malik is a former President of the United Nations General Assembly. He once had a conversation with the then U.S. Secretary of State, Cyrus Vance. Malik was asked to opine about what is wrong with the United States. He said, "You have taken Jesus Christ our of your universities."

I'm sure most of us do not want today's universities to turn into seminaries. However, neither do many of us want them to avoid Christ as an inappropriate subject, or to teach things contrary to Christian principles.
