A recent Facebook study found that the top 25 colleges where men and women meet their future spouses are all Christian institutions of higher learning. The institutions claimed that, while many of their students meet their "soul mates" as class mates, their schools are for learning, not romance.
"The perception on the outside looking in is that we are a marriage factory, but it's not because Harding University is trying to be a Match.com kind of place and push marriage on people," Monte Cox, dean of Harding University's College of Bible and Ministry, told The Christian Post on Tuesday. Harding University in Searcy, Ark., ranked second for men finding spouses from the same college, and 16 for women.
Cox dispelled the potential charge that, since the school takes a hardline stance against premarital sex, students use marriage as a license to have sex. "I haven't found that," he said, referring to his private capacity as a premarital counselor with his wife. "I'm sure there have been some couples like that, but most of the couples we've counseled were ready to get married." more >>

Three youth pastors working as volunteers in the cafeteria of a Washington state public school have been temporarily banned from the campus and are now being investigated on suspicions that they have been telling students about Jesus.
According to KIROTV.com the three pastors who reportedly also tried to recruit students to Christianity have been asked not to volunteer at the Woodward Middle School in the Bainbridge Island School District until an investigation into the allegations is complete. A spokesperson said an outside contractor was hired to launch a "fact finding" mission into the charges.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – America no longer has a Judeo-Christian basis and it is up to Christians to help re-establish the nation's foundation before freedom is completely lost, said prolific author and theologian Dr. Norman Geisler.
"We are losing our freedoms because we are losing our Judeo-Christian basis for the freedoms in America," Geisler said in a recent interview during the National Conference on Christian Apologetics hosted by the Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, N.C. "The founding fathers all, without exception, showed an inseparable unity between integrity and liberty, between virtue and our freedoms.
"Now that we no longer have a Judeo-Christian basis for our country we are realizing that we are losing all our freedoms along with it," he explained. "Our job is to speak to the culture and help re-establish our Judeo-Christian basis or our freedom is going to be swept away." more >>
