Teachers have a lot of influence over us. I know. I used to be a college professor. :)
And young men--like you--are sometimes intimidated by their professors. As a once-upon-a-time student, I know that, too!

But let me tell me you something. Teachers are not God! Sometimes what they teach is not true, even though they themselves believe it is true.
For example, most high schools and universities today teach that Darwin's theory of evolution is true. But it is not. It has never been proven to be true.
So, how can you tell if what your teacher is teaching you is true? There is an easy way. Check to see if what your teacher is teaching you agrees with what God says in the Holy Scriptures.
Let's use evolution as an example. Your teacher may be teaching you that you came from a monkey. But God says that you were created directly by Him as a human being.
For you created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . . - Psalm 139: 13-14
This doesn't sound at all to me as if you came from a monkey.
So, whom are you going to believe? Your teacher, or God?
Now, if you oppose what your teacher is saying about evolution, your teacher will likely respond that there is no God. He or she may even give you some high-sounding explanations that may make you feel stupid. Don't take the bait!
As one who has four graduate degrees and who has taught in two of the best universities in the United States, I have been around many professors. Most who teach in universities today are atheists or agnostics. Remember this: A teacher who says there is no God is a fool (Psalm 14: 1). Do not listen to him or her. And do not be intimidated by him or her.
There is a Satanic move afoot--and there has been for the last 157 years since Darwin published his Origin of the Species in 1859--to deceive the world (and especially young people) into believing that we are here only by chance. This is a blatant lie that has led to suicide, abortion, euthanasia, the holocaust, and other atrocities that have attempted to blot out the amazing and inherent worth and purpose of every human being.
You are made in the image of God. You are on earth for a unique purpose that only you can fulfill. Follow Jesus closely. You will discover your purpose only in Him.
Now, a question: Have you experienced intimidation because of your stance for Christ? Let's hear from you in the Comment Box below. :)
