Stanford Appoints an Atheist Chaplain! 12/31/2012


by Moody Adams
There's an atheist chaplain at Stanford, John Figdor.
He has a degree from Harvard Divinity School and he does what today’s chaplains do. He counsels those in need. He visits the sick. Figdor points out, "Atheist, agnostic and humanist students suffer the same problems as religious students - deaths or illnesses in the family, questions about the meaning of life, etc. - and would like a sympathetic nontheist to talk to." And he's welcomed as part of the Office of Religious Life.
Christ to be saved.

What he does is offer godless, humanistic counseling. Tragically many Christian chaplains are offering this same godless humanistic counseling.

And of course he does not try to get students to repent of their sins, nor to receive Christ to be saved.
What he does is offer godless, humanistic counseling. Tragically many Christian chaplains are offering this same godless humanistic counseling.

“Evidently he's part of a growing number of "faith-free" chaplains at universities. All the benefits of religion without the god bit,” writes Alan Jones

Figdor, doesn’t just have a spiritual problem. He has a mental problem. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God” (Psalm 14:1).
