Another Reason To Attend Chrisitan Colleges

My wife and I are very pro Christian College especially since we are both alumni of one. So when I saw this over on the Church Relevance Blog I thought it was worth sharing with you:

In a recent study, the Harvard Divinity School investigated “How religious are America’s college and university professors?” What they discovered was:

  • 23.4% of all professors describe themselves as either atheists or agnostics.
  • 36.6% of professors from the 50 best doctoral-awarding universities describe themselves as either atheists or agnostics.
  • 61% of all psychology and biology professors describe themselves as either atheists or agnostics.

In contrast, only 5.2% of all Americans are atheists according to the Baylor Religion Survey.

Put that on top of the fact that 85% of Christian teens fall away in their first year at Public Universities it provides a pretty compelling reason to direct students to a Christian college.
