Many student presents research at LCU Honors Forum

Britain Campbell

Britain Campbell, a Many, Louisiana Christian University student presented research Saturday as part of the 2022 C.S. Lewis Honors Forum.

Can an Antisocial Christian Exist?

“Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) is typically characterized by a lack of guilt and remorse and an inability to empathize and care for others,: Campbell said. “Because of these emotional hindrances, rehabilitation, much less Christian salvation, is thought to be near impossible to achieve for individuals with this disorder.”

Campbell reviewed literature to discover whether Christian salvation would be possible for an antisocial individual and, if so, the steps needed for them to receive it.

She found that despite the little research in both clinical and religious studies, it can be concluded that individuals with ASPD can come to receive the salvation of Christ through belief and repentance and can continue to improve their mental health after salvation.

Mary Bozeman’s one-woman show “Sim, One Night With A Lady Undertaker From Texas”

The Sabine Hall of Fame will honor Mary Bozeman for bringing live theater to Sabine Parish at its banquet on Tuesday, April 26, at St. Joseph’s Hall in Zwolle. After a very successful career in theater, Ms. Bozeman moved back to her native Sabine Parish, founded the Sabine Parish Players and Shakespeare in Sabine and presented theater for 27 years.

She presented “A Christmas Carol” each year for 20 years; her last production of it was about four years ago.

When asked, “Why are the Arts important to our community?” Ms. Bozeman wrote:

“They provide us with a look at the human condition and help us to place ourselves within its context. They differentiate us from the beasts of the field and help us to discern the difference between good and evil. They instill in young people an awareness of their innate value and help them to develop self-esteem. They enrich the spirit of each of us and of life itself.”
