" The end of a matter is better than its beginning "

The semester has reached it final destination! Congratulations to our graduates (graduation special issue coming next week!) and to all our students who pressed on and saw their work to its end! I speak for the entire staff team when I say we are so proud of our students. It can be easy to slip into a rut at college where we go through the motions and do "enough" to get the assignments done, but the overwhelming culture of the student body was one of fullness. They were hungry for growth and invested not simply in their academic workload, but in their personal development with Jesus. We (the staff) have observed so much growth in so many of you, and watched the grace of God, often displayed through each other, play out in your lives. It is a genuine privilege to be a part of your journey.

A Summer Challenge from the President

I have been reading through Job these past two weeks.  Though the record of Job’s suffering and restoration can teach us a lot about God’s purposes in our pain, I have been struck by the theology of Job’s friends.  While it would have been wiser for his friends to continue not speaking after being silent for 7 days,  what they said to Job was theologically correct in many ways.  Where they failed miserably was in how they applied their biblical theology to Job’s life. As we finish up our 2021 Spring semester here at ABC and we move into the summer months, I am confident that our students have received effective training this year in Bible study methods and Biblical exposition.  We spare no effort to be Alaska Bible College! My prayer for the students, the staff, yours truly and everyone who is reading this, is that we are just as careful this summer in our application of biblical theology as we are in our exposition of biblical theology.  Job’s friends had good theology but grossly misapplied it and thus did more harm than good for Job.  Let’s not have a summer of holding on to correct biblical theology while slipping away with careless applied theology.
