An Open Letter to Students at Southeastern University of the Assemblies of God in Lakeland, Florida

 

October 1, 2010

 

My dear Southeastern students:

My heart and prayers are with you daily.  I care for you as if you were my own children.  And my chief concern is for your soul. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26).

 

Alas, again it is reported that there is sin among you.  Two earlier reports were mentioned in my letter: “An Open Letter to Southeastern University of the Assemblies of God Alumni and Friends” @ http://www.libertyadvocate.com/Southeastern%20Univ.htm.

Recently, I received an e-mail from a SEU mother who planned to send it to the Presidential Search Committee...

…On our visits to the school, we were amazed and very impressed with the beauty of the campus. The fact that little Southeastern Bible College has achieved university status speaks well of the greatly improved academic environment. 

Yet, we - and many other friends - are alarmed at what we see as a departure from the Pentecostal heritage that built the school's foundation. Example: how can a student studying for the ministry reach his last semester, start interviews with churches, and reveal that he has not been to church in over a year and his job off campus is that of a bartender? And let me tell you, this is not rare!

…The reputation of the school appears to be top notch in the community and state. Yet, what does God think of the "progress"? Yes, there is a "remnant" of students whose eyes are fixed on Him and you can find them if you look closely. However, it is now perhaps more likely to find students in bars and dance clubs. 

One son told us three years ago that almost every freshman he knew smoked pot off-campus and that he felt SEU would not be considered a Christian university in ten years. I know you can't police the students all the time. Yet, change can occur with true revival of spiritual beliefs and that change must start at the top. 

It is now time to look for a President within our ranks - in other words - we need a President who is an alumnus of Southeastern with a proven record of Spirit-led and Spirit-filled ministry. He may not be a mover and shaker in the world's eyes, obtaining the praise of social, business and political leaders. He needs to be one who can kneel at the altar with the students and shake the heavens with his prayers. 

It's time for alumni, current SE leadership/teachers, the university board and presidential search committee to get on their faces before God. Then, and only then, will SEU have the President that God truly wants in leadership. Until then, my husband and I will be praying................

My dear SEU students, these sins are an abomination to the Lord! 

God’s Law commands holiness: “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16). 

Belief in God does not make you holy. 

Even demons believe in God.

 

Chapel attendance does not make you holy.

Even hypocrites and sinners attend chapel.

 

A true Christian is a holy temple.

 

A true Christian school is a holy campus.

 

And good works do not make you holy. 

Even atheists do good works.  

 

If you perform good works but lead an unholy life, you are a sinner and a hypocrite.  Good works may make you outwardly appear righteous to men, but Jesus said, “Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity” (Matthew 23:28).

 

Clearly, the Bible commands Christians to be righteous and holy: "For as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness and holiness" (Romans 6:19).  This is sanctification.

 

In fact, Jesus warns you in Matthew 7: 21-23 that professing Christians who sin will not enter the kingdom of heaven, even if you do many wonderful works in His name:

 

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

 

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

 

And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

 

O Southeastern students, who has deceived you?  Who has told you lies?

 

The truth is...if you commit sin, you are a sinner. And sinners are doomed to eternal damnation - hell.

My dear students, I fear that you have been made “merchandise of men”:

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not” (2 Peter 2:3).

A Baptist minister told me that district officials presented it to local pastors this way:  Today’s youth are not interested in church or true Christianity.  Therefore, when the older members of your congregation die, you’ll be without a congregation – you’ll be without a job!  Therefore, do whatever it takes to keep your job!   If it means bringing in entertainment – bring in entertainment!  If it means making sinners feel comfortable – make them feel comfortable!  If you don’t give sinners and youth what they want, we’ll all be out of jobs!  

 

The truth is corrupt church government sees itself as a business corporation that must save their jobs at any cost.  If they truly cared about you, they would tell you the truth – sinners go to hell.  Instead they want large congregations and large tithes and large offerings, so they refuse to preach the truth because they are afraid of offending you – their job security for tomorrow’s church. 

 

Woe unto church officials who market false Christianity and make merchandise of you! 

 

My dear Southeastern students, false prophets preach a false gospel and do not truly care about your soul.  All they care about it what they can gain from you – attendance, money, praise, and other pickings and takings!  False prophets are greedy dogs who stop at nothing to deceive you for their own gain. They preach a broad way to heaven. 

 

Jesus warns us in Matthew 7:13 - 15:

 

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go thereat:  

 

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 

   

O Southeastern youth, beware of false prophets!  

 

Beware of false prophets that lead you down the broad path to hell!  

 

False prophets profess innocence, love, global peace, compassion and progressive Christianity.  And there are many false prophets preaching many false gospels.

 

One false gospel is the gospel of Christian Humanitarianism. Christian Humanitarians talk about Christ, but distort His mission as coming to crusade against social evils.

Christian Humanitarianism preaches and teaches the life of Christ as a reformer instead of our Redeemer and Saviour.

This is a man-made doctrine! 

This is a fable!  This is a lie!

Instead of preaching against “old” sins, Christian Humanitarians preach causes, or “new” sins:  The sin of poverty.  The sin of pollution.  And other social evils. They preach multiculturalism, saving Mother Earth, and good works for the improved welfare of humanity.  Christian Humanitarians emphasize social sins and ignore personal sins. In other words, Christian Humanitarians emphasize man's efforts unaided by Divine help. They deify man. They despise the Cross of Christ.  They substitute “man glorified” for “Christ crucified.”  They believe the Message of the Cross is foolishness.

Christian Humanitarians deny the central message of New Testament evangelism is “Christ crucified.”

Christian Humanitarians are enemies of the Cross of Christ.

Christian Humanitarians such as Rick Warren are joining hand in hand with other enemies of the Cross of Christ to build a global community with a one-world religion – religious humanism, or secular humanism.  Rick Warren and other false religious leaders are shifting away from “sin issues” – like abortion and gay marriage – and are more interested in “uniting” in causes such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, climate change and human rights. 

But when you shift away from “sin issues” you shift away from the true Gospel!

Religious humanists, including Christian humanitarians, glorify man’s power to save the world.

(See “Crucifying Christianity” @ http://www.libertyadvocate.com/Crucifying%20Christianity.htm

&

“Wake Up, Evangelicals!” @ http://libertyadvocate.com/message28.htm)

Even on “Christian” campuses, there is an emphasis on social justice and good works instead of evangelism and righteous living. False teachers cleverly teach some true doctrine and include false teachings with it.  Many “Christian” schools preach Christian Humanitarianism, not “Christ crucified.”  Students are not taught the Truth – the doctrine of the Cross of Christ.  Instead they are indoctrinated with the false gospel of Christian Humanitarianism.

I witnessed this crusade for Christian Humanitarianism while visiting SEU last year.  Many of you were wearing t-shirts crusading against poverty in Africa.  During chapel, a special offering was collected to fight human trafficking.  Outside the cafeteria, tables were set up collecting money for another social cause.  Southeastern is not a Christ-centered school.  You are not crusading for Christ, but crusading for man – Christian Humanitarianism.  SEU is a man-centered school.

No t-shirts were worn crusading for lost sinners.  In chapel, no offering was collected to send Bibles to foreign nations.  Outside the cafeteria, no tables were set up collecting money for world evangelism.

There was no mention of Jesus Christ who came to set us free from the bondage of sin. It is no longer a true Christian school.  True Christian schools teach a life of purity and expect their students to live a life of holiness. A student body polluted with sin desperately needs the Message of the Cross!

O Southeastern students, what can wash away your sin?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus. 

Yea, there are many false gospels.  But the true gospel is that God sent His Son to die on the Cross for sinners. The Cross is the Power of God because it was there that the total sin debt was paid, allowing us to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no reconciliation between God and sinner.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no salvation.

Without the Cross of Christ, lost souls are doomed to eternal damnation.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

O Southeastern, humble yourselves, and pray, and seek the face of the Lord, and turn from your wicked ways and be healed! 

O Southeastern…

1)      Repent and turn from your wicked ways!  Christians are called to be saints.

He that committeth sin is of the devil;

for the devil sinneth from the beginning.

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,

that he might destroy the works of the devil.

1 John 3: 8, 9  

 

Let us cleanse ourselves from

all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,

perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2 Corinthians 7:1

 

Among whom are ye also called of Jesus Christ: …called to be saints.

Romans 1: 6, 7

 

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

And that ye put on the new man,

which after God is created in

 righteousness and true holiness.

Ephesians 4: 23, 24

 

2)      Hunger and thirst after righteousness.

 

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:

for they shall be filled. 

Matthew 5:6

 

I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger;

and he that believeth on me

shall never thirst.

John 6:35

 

3)   Read the Word of God (KJV) to know the Truth.

      If ye continue in my word,

then are ye my disciples indeed; 

And ye shall know the truth,

and the truth shall make you free. 

John 8:31, 32

 

Sanctify them through thy truth: 

thy word is truth.

John 17:17

 

4)      Fear God.

God judgeth the righteous,

and God is angry with the wicked every day.

Psalm 7:11

 

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom

which cannot be moved,

let us have grace,

whereby we may serve God acceptably

with reverence and godly fear:

For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12:28, 29

 

5)      Reverence God’s House (chapel/church).

Ye shall keep my sabbaths,

and reverence my sanctuary:

I am the Lord.

Leviticus 19:30

 

Her priests have violated my law,

and have profaned mine holy things:

they have put no difference between

the holy and profane,

neither have they shewed difference

between the unclean and the clean,

and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths,

and I am profaned among them

 Ezekiel 22:26

 

It is written,

My house shall be called

the house of prayer;

But ye have made it a den of thieves.

Matthew 21:13

 

 

6)      Worship God in spirit and in truth.

 

God is a Spirit:

and they that worship him

must worship him in spirit and in truth.

John 4:24

 

 

7)   Obey the Great Commission.

 

      Preach all the counsel of God.  

      Preach the pure Gospel.  

      Preach Christ Crucified.  

 

Go ye into all the world,

and preach the gospel to

every creature.

Mark 16:15

 

 

For I have not shunned to declare unto you

  all the counsel of God.

Acts 20:27

 

For we are not as many,

which corrupt the word of God.

2 Corinthians 2:17

 

There be some that trouble you,

and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

But though we, or an angel from heaven,

preach any other gospel unto you

than that which we have preached unto you,

let him be accursed. 

As we said before, so say I now again,

 If any many preach any other gospel unto you

 than that ye have received,

let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:7 – 9

 

For Christ sent me not to baptize,

but to preach the gospel:

not with wisdom of words,

lest the cross of Christ

should be made of none effect.

For the preaching of the cross is to them

 that perish foolishness;

but unto us which are saved

it is the power of God. . .

But we preach Christ crucified,

unto the Jews a stumblingblock, 

and unto the Greeks foolishness.

1 Corinthians 1:17, 18, 23

 

8)   Beware of false prophets and false preachers and false teachers.

 

Beware of false prophets,

which come to you in sheep's clothing,

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Matthew 7:15

 

Beware of the scribes,

which love to go in long clothing,

and love salutations in the marketplaces,

And the chief seats in the synagogues,

and the uppermost rooms at feasts:

Which devour widows’ houses,

And for a pretence make long prayers:

these shall receive greater damnation.

Mark 12:38 – 40

 

Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees,

which is hypocrisy.

Luke 12:1

 

For such are false apostles,

deceitful workers,

transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 

And no marvel;

for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers

also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;

whose end shall be according to their works.

2 Corinthians 11: 13 – 15

 

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,

after the tradition of men,

after the rudiments of the world,

and not after Christ.

Colossians 2:8

 

 

9)   Pray for the spiritual revival of Southeastern.

 

O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord…

O breath, and breathe upon these slain,

that they may live.

Ezekiel 37:4, 9

 

Quench not the Spirit.

1 Thessalonians 5:19

 

 

10)  Pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ.

 

Making mention of you in my prayers;

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,

the Father of glory,

may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.

Ephesians 1:16, 17

 

 

11)  Pray for a president that will be a true shepherd.

 

Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, 

set a man over the congregation,

Which may go out before them, 

and which may go in before them,

and which may lead them out,

 and which may bring them in;

that the congregation of the Lord 

be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

Numbers 27:16, 17

 

And Jesus, when he came out,

saw much people,

and was moved with compassion toward them,

because they were as sheep

not having a shepherd:

and he began to teach many things.

Mark 6:34  

 

 

Finally…

As many as I love,

I rebuke and chasten:

be zealous therefore,

and repent.

Revelation 3:19  

O beloved Southeastern students, be zealous and repent!

Faithfully serving our Lord Jesus Christ and Savior,

Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.
