Claiborne’s Cedarville Cancellation

My buddy Rhett Smith has posted a great reflection about the recent cancelation of Shane Claiborne’s scheduled talk at Ohio’s Cedarville University.  Rhett questions the validity of the quote below, and discusses his own thoughts as someone who is a college pastor.

“There was a tension between my desire to use this event to challenge students to take a closer look at a very important social issue, and the need to protect Cedarville’s reputation as a conservative, Christ-centered university,??? said Ruby. “There can’t be any confusion about our commitment to God’s Word and our historically conservative doctrinal position.

Since when did living with and serving the poor make you not Christ-centered?
