Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

College Shuts Down Dorm Room Bible Study | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes

Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida is in the forefront of discrimination against Christian Evangelicals.  The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship was not allowed to be a registered student group on excuse that its leaders are required to be Evangelical believers, although anyone else can join the group and attend meetings.  Basically, the right to freedom of religion is on the way out.  

Although I agree mostly with the two kingdoms theology, the idea that Christians cannot organize to fight this sort of discrimination is going beyond the pale of the Christian mission.  Christian churches are indeed called to preach the Gospel and stay out of the transforming of culture mode.  On the other hand, when the freedom to exercise religious liberties are censored and shut down by a materialistic secularism and inherent atheism Evangelical churches cannot withdraw from the fight.  That's not two kingdoms theology but fundamentalist withdrawal from the world.

When a group of students cannot sit in public area of a dorm in the United States of America and discuss freely any intellectual idea, whether it be religious theology, philosophy or whatever, then we no longer live in a democracy but a totalitarian state.  When will Christians get their heads out of the sand and realize that the freedom of religion and free speech are evaporating before our very eyes.

Next you will see Christian colleges being disenfranchized from federal student loans and other such student help if they discriminate against homosexuals, immorality or any other politically correct view propagandized in the media.
