Satan goes to the Garden:
Sadly, not everything is good about Harvard. You see, Satan enters every Christian institution and plants his corrupt teachings. Harvard became a fertile ground for many ungodly, unChristian ideologies over the years.
William Buckley Jr once said that he would rather be governed by the first 100 names in the Boston telephone book rather by the faculty of Harvard University. There is some truth to those words. But overall, God blessed
a pastor’s vision to establish a university for the glory of Christ and transformed it into a global institution which profited countless lives. Now, let us go to the art museum.
