College president: ‘This is not a day care. This is a university!’

*Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, weighed in with aletter to the campus community:

This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt “victimized” by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13. It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love! In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.

I’m not making this up. Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic! Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims! Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them “feel bad” about themselves, is a “hater,” a “bigot,” an “oppressor,” and a “victimizer.”

I have a message for this young man and all others who care to listen. That feeling of discomfort you have after listening to a sermon is called a conscience! An altar call is supposed to make you feel bad! It is supposed to make you feel guilty! The goal of many a good sermon is to get you to confess your sins — not coddle you in your selfishness. The primary objective of the Church a

So here we are with some colleges not buying into the victim mentality and telling students to grow up.

FC saw that on Facebook. That University President gets it. Why is the kid going to a Christian University if he just wants his ego stroked while doing just as he pleases?

That wouldn’t be surprising. Or it could be that his parents said, “If you want us to pay for your education, you’ll go where we want you to go.”

Unfortunately, what this tells me is that this kid didn’t learn squat–regardless of what school he’s attending.
