Last Friday at the Pacific Union College graduation ceremony, graduating theology student Samuel Smith gave a short but powerful talk to the audience.
During his three minute talk, Samuel stressed the need for a personal relationship with Jesus, but also warned his fellow students of faculty who were "Wolves in Sheep's clothing."
Most of the professors that I have met here are amazing, but there are some that I would suggest are wolves in sheep's clothing. That advocate that there is no ultimate purpose in life, that [say] 'you cannot trust the Bible, that Jesus was nothing. If anything He was [merely] a good man.' I have seen personally some of my dear friends, who I thought were solid Christians, slip away [under the influence of this kind of teaching] into agnosticism and atheism.
And many of them will talk about what their professor said, or what they heard in this book or that book... And what I'll ask them is 'When was the last time you had devotions with Jesus? When was the last time you put actual time into [a relationship] with Him?'
Straight talk indeed.
