This week, we continue our series about the NCAA sanctions against ACU called “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.”

Last week, we focused on the allegations and the heavy-handed response the NCAA handed down. Most of the ACU sins were minor and usually involved Christians trying to love their neighbors who just happened to be athletes. And the NCAA punishment simply did not fit the crime.

But this week, we’re going to shift our focus and talk about ACU’s role. Not in committing these offenses–even ACU admits they did these things. Rather, I want to focus on ACU’s response…or lack thereof.

This could have been a great moment when a Christian school had the attention of the national media and used it to talk about how absurd it is that a church can’t give out a Christmas gift to an athlete. This could have been a great teaching moment for the whole nation. We could have shown America that we are “no ordinary university.”

So tune in the rest of the week as we talk about the missed opportunities in ACU’s response.
