Faculty Focus: Matt McLain

2/21/2017

The most many of us know about dinosaurs is what we have learned from Jurassic Park, the main lesson being don’t try to bring the extinct back into existence. However for Dr. Matthew McLain, a recent addition to our faculty, the existence of dinosaurs is his profession. While pursuing his PhD, he and a group of paleontologists spent their summers covered in dust and digging under the Wyoming sun. During this time, they found a bone covered with large bite marks . . .

500-year-old Scroll Donated to The Master's University

2/16/2017

“We often take books for granted,” Dr. William Varner explained in chapel last Friday, as he held a Bible in his right hand and a regular novel in his left. “We think they have always been with us, but they were an invention of the fifteenth century . . . people often think those in biblical times had books, but the Bible and other writings were written on scrolls. . . ."

Creation Summit: God's First Man Q&A

2/15/2017

The idea that Adam was the first created human is under attack within evangelical circles. Dr. John MacArthur warned about this issue in the introduction to his book, "The Battle for the Beginning" in 2001. We decided to hold a conference on this topic as the theme for our annual creation conference now called the Creation Summit. Much of what we will cover in the Summit is based on the book "What Happened in the Garden", written by the faculty of The Master’s University and Dr. MacArthur. . .

Alumni Focus: Justyn Lee

2/8/2017

Life is full of choices. Major fork-in-the-road decisions: where to pursue an education, whom to marry, in what do I put my faith, etc. Not all decisions are that significant but even the small ones can have a lasting effect on the path our lives take. The ultimate informant to that path is the sincere answer we offer to the question, who do I want to be?

Life in the Promised Land: An IBEX Student's Perspective (Vol. 1)

2/6/2017

On January 29th around 8:30 AM, IBEX Spring 2017 boarded a bus that would begin our journey to Israel. With little sleep and little food, a stop at protest-riddled JFK and after hours of travel, we finally arrived around 4:30 PM (Israel Standard Time) on January 30th in Tel Aviv. Although we were all certainly feeling the effects of jet lag, “brimming with excitement” would better encapsulate our mood. After all, we stood on the precipice of three months of life in Israel!

A Legacy of Leadership: Coach Kelvin Starr

2/2/2017

Hired last March, Kelvin Starr, the new men’s basketball coach, has turned last year’s 4-20 record around to 17-3 with almost half of his team being newcomers. To make this turn-around in one season is monumental and has earned him a growing respect around campus and further strengthened his reputation in the GSAC community . . .

The University Exchange

1/27/2017

A bookstore is a physical representation of an institution; it represents who we are. October 2016 The Master’s University Bookstore closed its doors and was cleared out for renovation. Paper covered the windows and thin wood walls concealed the facade --- hiding the work being done, but unable to silence the sound of nails being hammered in or stifle the smell of fresh paint.

Truth Is Not Personal

1/23/2017

Have you ever been nervous or scared to speak up when it counted? If we’re honest, we’ve all found ourselves silent on occasions where we could have made a difference, but chose not to. Romans 1:16a should be a powerful encouragement: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.”

Called to Reform

1/20/2017

Who cares about the Reformation? The evangelical and conservative Christian contingent has been talking about the quincentennial since before last October, and will continue talking about it for the rest of 2017. You would figure, since it has been 500 years, it would be old by now.

Truth & Life: The Five Solas

12/17/2016

October 31, 1517. It has been 500 years since the then Catholic monk, Martin Luther, nailed his 95 Theses to the church doors in Wittenberg, Germany. It has been 500 years since the heart of Christianity was finally taken back to its roots: sola fide, sola scriptura, solus christus, sola gratia and soli deo Gloria.

More Than Camping

11/21/2016

In any educational institution, different roles exist for different functions. Faculty teach and research, staff administrate, and students learn. They interact on a daily basis, but only to a certain extent. Boundaries, drawn by their inherent and practical purposes, divide them. However, throughout the course of a semester, the boundaries between faculty, staff and students are not permanent. Sometimes, they dissolve. . .
