A student at West Virginia University died as a cause of alcohol related issues, after he had pledged to the Kappa Sigma fraternity. The student was found not breathing and was being administered CPR when paramedics arrived at the scene. On the same day, thirty minutes after they left, paramedics were called back to the same house for another student.
The following day, West Virginia University indefinitely suspended all social and pledging activities by fraternities and sororities. [source]
A lot of people don’t consider the fact that fraternities and sororities are another evil facet of society that none of us should be involved in. We should also teach our children not to get involved with any of these things when they go away to college. Many people join for the so called “brotherhood” or “sisterhood,”
fun times that they will have
and the potential success after graduating because of their connections.
But for those of us that are God-fearing, we will know, keep in mind and teach our children, that true success comes from the Lord when we’re keeping his commandments, as instructed by Jesus Christ.
Psalm 128:1-2 Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
2. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
For most young people that go off to college, they’re doing all the fun things that they only dreamed of doing prior to attending college-which are sometimes hurtful-as in the case of this student that died, because their parents aren’t around.
The Most High God doesn’t discriminate and let all of us know that we will all have to answer to things that we’ve done.
Ecclesiastes 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
For those of us with children, we should teach them that fraternities and sororities are just another tool of Satan that is out in the world to entice people and to have them go away from following our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
We invite you to view our video below that addresses the fact that people are selling their souls to Satan when they join these organizations.
