Harvard University’s organization of chaplains have unanimously elected Greg Epstein — a Jewish atheist — as Chief Chaplain in an effort to allegedly unite members of Harvard’s large and diverse “faith” communities:
Harvard has long been a place where people and ideas come together, where beliefs, world views, and traditions are valued and debated. The university, founded by English Puritans in the 1600’s, is now cohabited by adherents to numerous faiths, and even those without faith.
The Harvard Chaplains are the centre of religious and spiritual life on campus. According to their website, they are “a professional community of more than thirty chaplains, represent many of the world’s religious, spiritual, and ethical traditions, and share a collective commitment to serving the spiritual needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Harvard University.”
All major religions and sects are represented, as well as less common faiths such as Baha’i and Zoroastrians. There is even a “Humanist Chaplain” for humanist, agnostic, and atheist students. His name is Greg Epstein. This week, Mr. Epstein will take over as Chief Chaplain after being unanimously elected by his fellow faith leaders, according to The New York Times. The 44-year-old self-professed atheist has been a long-time member of the Harvard Chaplains, and has grown to be respected by colleagues and students alike. As leader, Epstein will be responsible for coordinating the activities of all the other chaplains on campus.
Epstein, author of the book Good Without God, has served as Harvard’s Humanist Chaplain since 2005. As the Times reports, he teaches students to center their relationships “with one another instead of with God,” and urges everyone to ask the tough questions such as “Does God exist?” and “What is the meaning of life?“
“There is a rising group of people who no longer identify with any religious tradition,” Epstein said, “but still experience a real need for conversation and support around what it means to be a good human and live an ethical life.” As the Times explains, many students are finding it hard these days to place themselves within a particular box, religiously speaking. There are some who claim to be deists, while not interested in adhering to a particular dogma, others who feel spiritual but not religious, and then there are those who have no belief in the supernatural whatsoever.
Epstein’s chaplaincy has provided a welcoming home for all of the aforementioned groups, as well as those who fall into more mainstream categories who want to expand their circles and engage with members of other religions.
Yes, in a country that recognizes 64 distinct genders — and encourages all young people to give each one a try — it’s not surprising at all that those “gender fluid” progressives can’t decided whether or not God exists.
And since the one and only true God of the Bible recognizes only two genders, it’s not surprising that most young people reject God on that single issue alone — and that non-judgmental atheism floats their boats.
Let’s leave aside the fact that the word “chaplain” is implicitly Christian — and is utterly meaningless in any other context — especially atheism or “humanism.”
But it’s not surprising that a Jew like Mr. Epstein has been the Humanist “Chaplain” on campus for many years — after all, Liberal Humanism is Judaism for atheists — but since all Jews reject God incarnate — Jesus Christ — all Jews — including the “religious” ones — are atheists too.
Note how Mr. Epstein, despite claiming to be an “atheist” still identifies as a Jew — there is no conflict between Jewish identity and atheism — because Judaism — in its secular and “religious” forms — is nothing more than atheism or self-worship whose foundation is the hatred of Christ.
And we know that the nation wreckers also want to tear down the barriers between all “religions” — and all white nations — and bring them all together under one umbrella — a one-world faith — which will no doubt be the kind of feel-good, tolerant atheism that Mr. Epstein espouses — and the rabbis — and the Pope — can give it their kosher stamp of approval.
Most Christians today are pluralists like Epstein anyway — thanks to their “woke” preachers — in complete rejection of the very foundation of the faith as Christ Himself stated in John 14:6 — “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
If that verse is not true, then Christianity is pointless — and you have just as good a chance as being “saved” by watching The Oprah Winfrey Show — or a one-eye cow — as you do conforming your life to Jesus Christ.
Just as if the First Commandment isn’t true — “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” — the whole Bible is pointless.
once you make any concession to it, within a few generations Harvard Divinity School is transformed into a virtual synagogue with an atheist Jew overseeing “faith” on campus — and the Bible is relegated to the status of just another popular “self-help” book.
