Well, true enough, but the argument always sidesteps the fact that some rules are stupid, draconian, unjust, and even sinful - and, really, unworthy of obedience. It's crazy, this college has around students in which is huge for an IFB college and yet not one of them sees anything wrong with the rules. I see they are actively pursuing accreditation so maybe they will remove that rule.
Btw, Crown College is officially called Crown College of the Bible and should not be confused with any other college by the same name.
I just love reading stupid fundy college rules. This one caught my attention: Crown College Conformist Clowns said:. All male students are required to shave each morning before class. Facial hair is not allowed unless it has been worn for the five years consecutively or unless it is required for medical reasons. Such facial hair must be neatly groomed at all times. Student handbook p. Bro Blue Guest. Ransom, funny you should mention the beard thing. What is it with the facial hair issue?
We know that even Jesus had a beard.

Why a lot of ifb's fixate on that as an issue? Because hippies, beatniks and so forth had facial hair back in the 50ss. It doesn't matter if all varieties of facial hair are now a normal and unremarkable part of male grooming. I wear a goatee myself. Because the flower children did it onceit is forever countercultural and therefore rebellious. Which still makes the grandfather clause a bit weird.
I guess it's OK for you to keep wearing your beard, as long as you've had it since you lived on the street in Haight-Ashbury. Ransom said:. Mercy Me Guest. Dating [ Mercy Me said:. If sitting next to someone in church and chatting with them is considered a date, than so should be sitting next to someone on an airplane and making polite conversation. I have heard many IFBx pastors speak about such conversations during sermons According to Crown these married mennogawd have been "dating" and have some 'splainin' to do.
If it's good enough for the goose, it is good enough for the gander. Facial hair rules are not just in Fundie colleges. Firefighters for example have them for safety reasons. I doubt that they'll be having to don gas masks any time soon. And I really don't think they've thought their "standards" out as much as you have on their behalf. I suspect it's part cultural inertia it's been that way for agesand part the spritual one-upmanship that we see in psycho-fundy churches - where they will pile rule upon rule in an attempt to look all the more "holy" and "separated.
I think these standards are fear based. Oh no, the students will all go to the devil!!!

Interesting - there are rules against working where alcoholic beverages are sold, but none against consuming said beverages. AmazedbyGrace said:. You must log in or register to reply here.
