500-year-old Scroll Donated to The Master's University


“We often take books for granted,” Dr. William Varner explained in chapel last Friday, as he held a Bible in his right hand and a regular novel in his left. “We think they have always been with us, but they were an invention of the fifteenth century . . . people often think those in biblical times had books, but the Bible and other writings were written on scrolls. . . ."

Creation Summit: God's First Man Q&A


The idea that Adam was the first created human is under attack within evangelical circles. Dr. John MacArthur warned about this issue in the introduction to his book, "The Battle for the Beginning" in 2001. We decided to hold a conference on this topic as the theme for our annual creation conference now called the Creation Summit. Much of what we will cover in the Summit is based on the book "What Happened in the Garden", written by the faculty of The Master’s University and Dr. MacArthur. . .

Alumni Focus: Justyn Lee


Life is full of choices. Major fork-in-the-road decisions: where to pursue an education, whom to marry, in what do I put my faith, etc. Not all decisions are that significant but even the small ones can have a lasting effect on the path our lives take. The ultimate informant to that path is the sincere answer we offer to the question, who do I want to be?

Life in the Promised Land: An IBEX Student's Perspective (Vol. 1)


On January 29th around 8:30 AM, IBEX Spring 2017 boarded a bus that would begin our journey to Israel. With little sleep and little food, a stop at protest-riddled JFK and after hours of travel, we finally arrived around 4:30 PM (Israel Standard Time) on January 30th in Tel Aviv. Although we were all certainly feeling the effects of jet lag, “brimming with excitement” would better encapsulate our mood. After all, we stood on the precipice of three months of life in Israel!

A Legacy of Leadership: Coach Kelvin Starr


Hired last March, Kelvin Starr, the new men’s basketball coach, has turned last year’s 4-20 record around to 17-3 with almost half of his team being newcomers. To make this turn-around in one season is monumental and has earned him a growing respect around campus and further strengthened his reputation in the GSAC community . . .

The University Exchange


A bookstore is a physical representation of an institution; it represents who we are. October 2016 The Master’s University Bookstore closed its doors and was cleared out for renovation. Paper covered the windows and thin wood walls concealed the facade --- hiding the work being done, but unable to silence the sound of nails being hammered in or stifle the smell of fresh paint.

Truth Is Not Personal


Have you ever been nervous or scared to speak up when it counted? If we’re honest, we’ve all found ourselves silent on occasions where we could have made a difference, but chose not to. Romans 1:16a should be a powerful encouragement: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.”

Called to Reform


Who cares about the Reformation? The evangelical and conservative Christian contingent has been talking about the quincentennial since before last October, and will continue talking about it for the rest of 2017. You would figure, since it has been 500 years, it would be old by now.

Truth & Life: The Five Solas


October 31, 1517. It has been 500 years since the then Catholic monk, Martin Luther, nailed his 95 Theses to the church doors in Wittenberg, Germany. It has been 500 years since the heart of Christianity was finally taken back to its roots: sola fide, sola scriptura, solus christus, sola gratia and soli deo Gloria.

More Than Camping


In any educational institution, different roles exist for different functions. Faculty teach and research, staff administrate, and students learn. They interact on a daily basis, but only to a certain extent. Boundaries, drawn by their inherent and practical purposes, divide them. However, throughout the course of a semester, the boundaries between faculty, staff and students are not permanent. Sometimes, they dissolve. . .

2nd Annual Poetry Slam


The faculty, staff and students of The Master’s University were torn between too many options to fill their Friday night schedule: a Men’s basketball game against Embry-Riddle, a jazz night at a local coffee shop, and the men’s weekend camping retreat in Malibu. However, for all those options, an elect few spent their evening between the book-filled walls . . .
