Perhaps this isn't a popular topic to bring up, but I wanted some opinions from the larger fundamentalist community on NIU. I have heard some disconcerting things about Northland, both from alumni who are close friends and from other fundamentalist bloggers, such as Lou Martuneau's In Defense of the Gospel blog. The concerns of my alumni friends echo the very issues Lou brings up in this important blog post here -
Lou also has a number of other blog posts chronicling his concern with Northland's direction; all of which can be found at his site. Let me reiterate, his concerns echo the very things my friends have mentioned to me. I am well aware Lou is a sharp critic (perhaps that word is too kind?!) of SharperIron. Let's leave that aside. I'm not interested in ad hominem arguments against Lou's character - that isn't the issue.
Is there a problem at Northland? Should fundamentalists be concerned? Should fundamentalists speak out? I would not recommend this college to any teenager at my church. What say you?
