"Fallacies of a Master’s Level Education: Almost every seminary is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS). If a seminary is ATS accredited, it must meet the ATS criteria. This is problematic in itself (ATS is ecumenical and liberal in its core). The criteria for the Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree minors on Biblical knowledge and majors on psychobabble, faith-community, mystical gobbledygook…and it always has."
"I am concerned that seminary focuses too little on discipleship and replaces it with scholarship. I am not against scholarship, but scholarship is a feeble substitute for biblical discipleship. A model of preparation for ministry based upon Jesus’ practice should seem a reasonable goal for educators with a high view of scripture." Can We Make Seminary More Effective?
