Students at the University of California were asked to submit a short statement to be read before they received their degrees. Christiana Popa’s statement read in part, “I want to thank my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” The student affairs advisor for the department objected and asked her to substitute “I want to thank God.” When Ms. Popa protested, the administration told her the only other option would be to forgo any statement. Surprisingly, later, the decision was reversed. Christiana was permitted to thank Jesus. It was important for her because she knew Jesus had said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” Let’ salute Christiana, for standing up for the Saviour of the world.
