***This is the 10th part of a lengthy series exposing the undeniable falling away from Dordt University’s biblical roots. The first parts highlighted speakers who: wrote a book about how “white evangelicals” have “corrupted a faith” and “fractured a nation,” said American exceptionalism is a myth, believes the American church was built on white supremacy, disputes the virgin birth, shill for the secular Left, and says same-sex relationships can be “holy.” Now we take a look at the track record of Chief of Staff and Dean of Chapel, Aaron Baart. Numerous students have chosen to not attend chapel due to Baart’s messages. Baart, along with President Erik Hoekstra, have led Dordt down the road away from basic, biblical belief and toward a much more secular worldview.***
During that March 2015 chapel, during which Dordt dean of chapel Aaron Baart spoke on homosexuality, he told the group of college students this:
“We should be so full of grace, care and compassion that people think we are so ridiculously soft on sin it’s not even funny.”
That is quite the statement when given to college-aged students at a Christian college.
This is an excerpt from Bite Size Bible Study:
“Perhaps the biggest problem in current Christian thought is our soft attitude toward sin.
It doesn’t line up with Scripture.
In fact, it resembles heresies Paul addressed in the early Church: “Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?” Romans 6:1-4
~ Everyday the “wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness” (Romans 1:18).
~ God says anyone who isn’t serious about sin is a liar, not a Christian (1 John 2:3-6).
~ We can choose to be a slave to sin or free in Christ, not both (John 8:34-36).
Indeed, a soft attitude toward sin is a big problem in the church.
