I protest the removal of the Cedarville philosophy program because I am devoted to the higher education of Cedarville students like myself. I am currently a Senior Preseminary Bible major and Philosophy minor. Dr. Graves has been monumental in my educational experience and my maturation as a person with faith in Jesus Christ. It is absurd to suppose Christians can grow in love of Christ without partaking in deep philosophy, because knowing and growing in awe of Christ results in loving Him more. Engaging in philosophy and seeking to understand our world fulfills a deep human desire and is simply a part of what it means to be humans made in the image of a communicative and personal God.
