  • The Significance of Holy Week | Columbia International University
    from other religious leaders and teachers and the events celebrated during Holy Week especially bear that out Croteau says the Holy Week story actually goes back the very first chapters of the Bible when the first man Adam became separated from God through his disobedience and that stain of sin was passed down to all his descendents including every human being alive today But Christians put their trust in the God of the Bible who sent His very own Son Jesus to die for our sins paying a debt we could never pay and then God raised Him from the dead Croteau said This is the loving gracious God of Scripture And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we saw His glory glory as of the only begotten from the Father full of grace and truth John 1 14 Good Friday is the day that Christians solemnly reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus a death that Croteau says was necessary In order for our relationship with God to be reconciled the sin has to be paid for Croteau said This is what Jesus did on the cross pay the penalty for the sin of those who would place their faith in Him Now all these things are from God who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation 19 namely that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself not counting their trespasses against them and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation 2 Corinthians 5 18 19 Croteau says Easter Sunday also called Resurrection Sunday by some is the pinnacle of God s redemptive plan Without the resurrection the Christian s faith is in vain because our sins would not have been forgiven Croteau said When the Father

  • Insight from Ukraine | Columbia International University
    had dealings on multiple levels We have an excellent relationship with the public schools of Zaporozhye where we have conducted special programs children s camps English programs seminars in ethics during these years The college has hosted a special two week intensive course in English every summer since our founding and while in the beginning it was only for our students for the past decade or so it has been open to the general public and has won great respect in the community Necessarily having to interact with government offices on various matters e g land purchase the college has a reputation for honesty and integrity as an institution serving Christ which is vital to our overall witness In light of the political tensions in Ukraine what is the atmosphere like at Zaporozhye Bible College and Seminary Naturally we all feel very very deeply about what is going on right now Let me be clear that we experience no tensions in the sense of conflict between anyone among our faculty staff or student body We certainly feel however the prevalent tension over the political and international situation We are committed to prayer and to maintaining our fundamental peace and joy in Christ even though there are moments for tears and mutual comfort Life is going on as normal in spite of the situation We work we teach study joke laugh eat and relax together but of course the national crisis is constantly pressing on our hearts and frequently bringing us back to prayer Your city and school are not far from the Russian border Do you feel threatened I will say that we are aware of the sense of a threat Mostly the feeling is one of great uncertainty a vague set of varying possibilities Zaporozhye is only about a five hour drive from Crimea in the south which Russian President Vladimir Putin s forces have taken and occupy We are not much further than that from the Russian border in the east where the Russian army has amassed perhaps 50 000 men It is impossible to imagine Putin attempting a complete military takeover of Ukraine which would certainly be a disaster for Putin It is more realistic to imagine him trying to take the southeastern sector of the country which they say mostly feels greater loyalty to Russia The Zaporozhye province is historically right at the divide politically between east and west The current feeling in our province seems to be more strongly pro Ukrainian unity than ever in reaction to Putin s aggression So I will say that we feel the general threat that all of Ukraine now feels from Russia which is already significant and will affect us all if Putin invades and we also feel a greater immediate threat to our province than they would feel in the west of Ukraine though we think perhaps we are just too far west and too Ukrainian for Putin to seriously think of trying to take our province What
