Letter: Concordia is not keeping the faithSpeaking of, “Keeping the Faith,” (Forum, Dec. 3) specifically the interview with Concordia students, is there anyone left at Concordia who stands for Christ alone? Just wondering. Have they “turned away from truth and turned aside to myths,” (2 Timothy 4:4) which is so in vogue for the self-searching and self-enlightened, and self-absorbed.?
Not to undermine the honest quest for true faith, which often is a journey, but I remember the “firm foundation” of knowing that my school stood for “Soli Deo Gloria” and, by the way, that included the Bible as the moral and spiritual authority on which that foundation stood firm. We knew and were inspired by being grounded in the truth of Christ. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)
Faith in Christ demands exclusivity in belief, but not exclusivity in people. Politically correct? No, but the tyranny of political correctness had not clouded our minds and darkened our hearts so that we rejected absolute truth. I hope Concordia will turn back to its firm foundation and take a stand once again for Christ.
It’s Soli Deo Gloria, not Pluribus Deo Gloria.
