UCLA Student Explodes

Sadly, Clarence is an example of a young man who grew up in the church as the son of a pastor--a young man who may have heard the gospel his entire life, but (if his behavior in the video is any indication) has never come to genuine repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. There are so many young men and women like Clarence on college campuses around the United States. They are the byproduct of modern evangelism messages and methods that lack the truth and power of the authentic gospel of Jesus Christ.

Instead of churches looking inward to assess why so many people of Clarence's generation go to secular colleges and "walk away from the faith," churches blame the schools for luring Clarence's generation away from the church and Christ. The problem is not that young people are going to secular colleges and losing their faith. The problem is that young people are going to secular colleges having never truly repented and trusted in Jesus Christ for their salvation. Then, once they are exposed to the secular humanism taught on campuses of "higher learning," they sadly grow more comfortable in their sin and unbelief.

I will never forget my encounter with Clarence and how it motivated me to spend as much time as I can proclaiming the gospel on college campuses.

If you are not already aware, I would like to introduce you to the best college evangelistic ministry in the world--Change Collegian Network (CCN). If your heart is burdened as mine is for reaching lost souls on college campuses, please visit the CCN website and see how you might get involved with the organization.
