    Pasul is a term that denotes “unclean” or no longer worthy of daily reading of God’s Word

    Dated roughly 1750 but the work continues on provenance

    Ratio Christi is now entrusted as the caretakers of this historic artifact

    Love is Love: Or Is It

    Almost 70 students attended a lunch session on Wed, February 9, Where Adam Tucker, Missions Director at southern Evangelical Seminary, Taught "Love is Love: Or Is It?" Adam explained the current cultural crisis in which people assume love is defined as acceptance of every bizarre behavior. What is good is defined by the nature of beings. Humans are genetically male or female and so we can understand sexuality in light of these truths

    Welcome Back!

    The fall semester started just a couple of weeks ago and Ratio Christi at Marshall University has already been busy! Prior to the semester starting we attended WOW for incoming freshman and RecFest the following Saturday! Our first meeting was held the first week of class and we have two new students joining us this semester. We decided to watch the documentary Mining for God. After the first week of viewing only the first twenty minutes, it appears to have been a good choice! (a forty minute discussion followed). So, life on campus is getting back to normal and we are excited of where God is leading us this term!
