@David Bedford. God can hate, its scriptural. See Proverbs 6:16-19. Its a part of God's jealousy, which is very much an attribute of God.
The term "God hates" disturbs me greatly. God is Love, and to project our human frailty upon Him is objectionable. Yes we can hate things, that is our nature if you accept that term, but I will not convey my shortcomings to my Lord. My Lord is perfect. Hate does not enter perfection.
This video is an eye opener. Awesome Professor who truly cares about his students. I have been considering Biola, and witnessing what a class would be like is great for my decision. Thank You!
WOW. Thats incredible. For the first time i have seen a professor of BIBLE in such a reputed university kneeling down and bowing the head in prayer. That speaks volumes to me about the committment this system gives for GOD. certainly the students who are join are lucky to be educated and mentors under such humble professors.
