As radical displays of antisemitism continue to spread throughout dozens of college campuses and universities across the country, students at one Christian school are defying the narrative and joining together to honor God and Israel.

Students at Liberty University gathered by the hundreds on the Academic Lawn outside the Montview Student Union on Wednesday to close out the semester with prayer, worship and reading the Bible.

As CBN News reported, the private Christian university located in Lynchburg, Virginia usually coordinates 24/7 prayer and other special prayer events midweek throughout the academic year.

And this week, students chose to close the semester with the “ultimate wrap-up” giving glory to God well into the night. 

Chancellor Jonathan Falwell told the students, “How amazing it is that Liberty students come to our lawn, and what we do rather than attacking one another is lift up the name of the only One who is worthy of our praise, and that is Jesus Christ, King of kings, and Lord of lords.”

Falwell, who is also the pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, told Fox News that Liberty University is shining as a light in the darkness.

“While so many campuses are erupting in anger, hatred, and violence; it is refreshing to see the students at Liberty University reflecting the love of Christ as we are commanded to do by Scripture,” he told the outlet.

“Jesus clearly tells us to love, and it is so telling that in higher education today, it seems as if some of the only places where love is being displayed are from the campuses of Christian universities like Liberty University,” Falwell continued. 

The school’s peaceful, Christ-focused, worship gathering stands in stark contrast to dozens of students being arrested at Yale University, NYU, the University of Southern California, the University of Texas at Austin, and Emerson College this week.

Even with Israel under fire from Hezbollah, Iran, and Hamas terrorists in Gaza, the number of anti-Israel demonstrations at prestigious universities continues to grow. 

As of Thursday, Emory University, Northwestern University, Cornell University, George Washington University, Princeton University, and the City College of New York all participated in demonstrations, NPR reports.
