A Political Opinion

10/12/2016

Who would have thought this time last year the race for the presidency would be between a politician of thirty years and a business speculator reality TV host? Republican elites were ecstatic over the “excellent” stable of Republican presidential hopefuls. Hillary Clinton, with all her baggage, would be an easy target for the Republican nominee. . .

The Faith of the Founding Fathers

10/4/2016

Did America’s Founders intend to create a Christian nation? Does it matter today and, if so, why? In order to arrive at a proper answer to the first question, one must recognize that “the Founding Fathers” were a diverse group of individuals who held diverse views on most subjects – including religion.

Teachers. We have all had them. Some we have loved and others we have despised. Some are recollected in epic proportions, and of some we share horror stories like a badge of honor, boasting our survival. Others bring a nostalgic smile to our face and a few were not merely mentors, but friends . . .

2016 Presidential Election & Current Events Summit

The never ending commentary on this ‘historic election’ is playing out in real-time on every cable news channel and newspaper headline. The rhetoric is getting louder and more vicious on both sides and Tuesday, November 8th, cannot come soon enough. The anxiety and fear is palpable.

All the World's a Stage

9/21/2016

It’s that moment. When the murmuring of the audience and soft rustling of the programs fade as the house lights dim. When a room, filled with strangers, friends and family, young and old, cease to be visible. Backstage, cast and crew hold their breath in a united hush. Each performer is consumed with excitement, fear and anticipation, nerves reveal themselves. . .

Good and Honest Soccer

Confronting the Postmodern Lie

9/8/2016

There is an insidious weed slowly and deceptively poisoning the worldview of the present-day Christian and weakening the foundation of many. It is a lie that, according to culture, is presented as truth. It is a motto preached from almost every social media outlet, car radio, television screen, schools both secular and, remorsefully, some claiming the name of Christ. . .

What Binds Us Together

9/6/2016

It’s a new semester, new year, and new era for The Master’s University! Each alumnus vividly remembers these first few days of new beginnings; fresh notebooks, new pens, the dread of general education courses or the exuberance of having your favorite professor again, the syllabus shock, the late nights talking with your roommate and catching up about the summer. You’ve experienced it all and your influence, love, and education . . .

Convocation Chapel

8/31/2016

Beginning in 1927, on the foundation of an uncompromising commitment to the inerrancy of Scripture and the God who wrote it, The Master’s University has been unshakeable in a century of turbulence. Celebrating our ninetieth year as an institution and our first year as a university, the entire student body and faculty gathered together for the annual convocation chapel.

Alumni Focus: Ryan Zamroz

8/30/2016

A map of Europe prominently hangs on the wall behind Ryan Zamroz’s desk, flanked by photos of the French Riviera, Spain, and Portugal. These photos are only a small representation of the six years Zamroz, athlete and alum of The Master’s University, played pro-basketball internationally. “Traveling the world on someone else’s dime and using basketball as a means of sharing the gospel with others” said Zamroz . . .
