Why INSIGHT?

“Union with Christ consists in the most intimate communication with him, in having him before our eyes and in our hearts, and being so filled with the highest love for him, at the same time we turn our hearts to our brothers whom he has closely bound to us and for whom also he sacrificed himself.”

Are these the words of Mother Theresa, St. Francis, or John Wesley?


They were actually written by Karl Marx at age 17, before he attended Bible school. It was at Bible school that Marx was exposed to “higher criticism,” which attacked the reliability of the Bible and eroded his confidence in the historicity of Jesus. Unprepared to deal with a critique of his faith, and disillusioned with the materialistic Church of his day, Marx rejected Christ and developed his famous revolutionary philosophy, embodied in The Communist Manifesto (The photo on the left is the young Marx and the one on the right the older Marx).

Unfortunately, Marx’s story is not an anomaly.  Many Christian students are unable to weather the storm of college.
We at INSIGHT believe students need a chance to wrestle with hard questions within an environment where such questions can be examined in the light of logic, history, science, and, most importantly, scripture. They need time to grapple with major ideas, philosophies, and current issues at the college level.
