Christian Resistance: Learning to Defy the World and Follow Jesus - Part 2

Guest: James Spencer, Ph.D.

Dr. Donald Sweeting

Host: Dr. Tim Clinton

August 18, 2022

Proverbs 1:7 declares that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Donald Sweeting, chancellor and former president of Colorado Christian University, explains that this biblical concept is foundational. In the face of our culture’s embrace of moral relativism, the CCU faculty unapologetically affirms the pursuit of Truth. The university boldly teaches competence in the context of developing character through a Christ-centered faith. It’s no wonder they’ve witnessed thirteen consecutive years of record enrollment in the face of a dramatic nine percent decline of universities nationwide.
