Cru gives students free tickets, mixed messages about The Shack

Amy Spreeman has the story:

Should Christians ever use and consume entertaining apostasy like the heretical The Shack movie to witness to those who aren’t Christians?

Cru™ (Formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ), is promoting its free ticket giveaway to college students to see the film and take their friends. And in an almost apologetic way, the ticket site includes a caveat stating that Cru “does not endorse the movie.” That’s the small-font italicized quip at the very bottom of the website’s page. A footnote.

Free tickets. Not endorsing.

Without giving any warning or explanation as to why they don’t endorse, the site provides four videos from Cru and Family Life leadership clearly endorsing and encouraging movie lovers to not miss this “wonderful” film.

    Sigh. But I’m not surprised. Back when I was a student with CRU the staff members even wanted to pass out fliers for an event that was a sleazy suggestion about kissing and relationship. Fortunately the students were more conservative and went against the workers..

      Campus Crusade was definitely more conservative back in the day. I still remember their magazines that had great articles for spiritual growth and encouragement.
