The South West College in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, has been designated a Confucius Centre for the South – West region.
This development will, no doubt, be welcomed by the multicultural and multi-faith devotees, many of whom have embraced synchretism, an “all roads lead to God mentality.”
However, for the Bible-believing Christian, this is not a welcome development.
Because the Bible teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, He is not one of many ways.
Those who embrace the teachings of Confucianism, and its “sacred” texts, The Analects and the Book of Filial Piety, will find themselves on a spiritually dangerous road, indeed, the broad road that leads to destruction.
Sadly, it is likely that many students will be influenced by Confucianism as they study at the South West College, but that is unlikely to be of any concern to those in positions of authority in Education who are behind this decision to bring Confucianism to said College. They were likely more, or only, concerned with the prestige the designation of “Confucius Centre” would confer on this particular “seat of learning.”
