commentary: Liberalism And Education (Part 3)
Understanding & Navigating Our Emotional Fellowship
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 05-May-12; Sermon #1100c; 14 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, continuing his exposé on liberalism and education, reminds us that conservatism carried to an extreme is every bit as dangerous as liberalism. Both the Sadducees and the Pharisees were enemies of Jesus Christ. Power, whoever possesses it, has the tendency to corrupt absolutely. Using the principle of sound-mindedness found in II Timothy 1:7, we should strive for moderation rather than extremes. The current danger that United States higher education faces from the entrenched liberal philosophy is the infiltration of Islamic influence through Arab investment in American educational institutions, such as Harvard, M.I.T., Georgetown, University of Arkansas, Rice, etc. The Arabs, duplicating the methods of the progressive leftists, are attempting to control the direction of American education, establishing centers for Islamic Studies, a kind of preliminary camel’s nose under the tent.
