“Every day I’m burdened by the fact that my peers might reject me because I’m different from them”

“I was an atheist long before I came to NCU,” the senior explains in his essay. “I was baptized Lutheran, and raised Methodist, but as time went on I slowly came to the conclusion that God wasn’t real. For me, church was an empty ritual that I participated in so I could see friends, scripture was largely mythological, and Jesus was a great moral teacher, but he wasn’t God.”

The senior notes that he chose Northwest Christian because of the “solid” communications program.

Fromm, 21, then spends over 200 words brazenly judging his fellow students for not supporting his atheism while simultaneously complaining that they might judge him.

“Every day I’m burdened by the fact that my peers might reject me because I’m different from them,” he writes.

“Growing up in church I heard a lot of lessons about how Christians shouldn’t judge others, but it seems like some people slept through that lesson,” the student concluded—after just criticizing everybody else at the school.
