According to my judgement the most important point to be attended to is this: above all things see to it that your souls are happy in the Lord. Other things may press upon you, the Lord’s work may even have urgent claims upon your attention, but I deliberately repeat, it is of supreme and paramount importance that you should seek above all things to have your souls truly happy in God Himself! Day by day seek to make this the most important business of your life. This has been my firm and settled condition for the last five and thirty years. For the first four years after my conversion I knew not its vast importance, but now after much experience I specially commend this point to the notice of my younger brethren and sisters in Christ: the secret of all true effectual service is joy in God, having experimental acquaintance and fellowship with God Himself. – George Muller (via community4christ)

you're religious and that's great but going to a college with religion narrows your education to one view point and the real world thinks your school is a joke. go a to a school with an actual reputation and a christian center or club or something

You start your message by saying that being religious is great and then bash it by saying it narrows my education to one viewpoint? Look, anon, I don’t know who you are… but if you’re following me you would know of my background. Am I religious? Nope. My faith is more than going to church on Sundays to sit in a service for almost an hour. I don’t go to church just to go to church. I got to church to learn more about my Lord Jesus Christ. I have a personal relationship with God and that has more meaning than being religious. I study film at a college that is not a Christian college. I’m tired of learning about the art by watching movies that me uncomfortable. I was born and raised in a Christian home with a Christian worldview and it has stuck with me through middle school, high school, and college. My parents didn’t force it on me when I became a teenager. I accepted Christ when was 5-years-old and WANTED to hold onto the worldview I was raised with. I’d rather learn more about my passion at a university that teaches their students with Christian values. Liberty has a reputation with people praising or bashing it. I would be proud and honored to get accepted to get my BA in film there, anon. 

And if LU is a joke of a school then I think that’s awesome. Why? Because it tells me that LU is doing the right thing by serving God by teaching their students with a Christian background. The following verse goes into more detail with that: 

"Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you." — 1 Peter 4:12-14 ESV
