Confronting the top 10 threats within the church

As reflected in their statement of beliefs, most seminaries were originally founded by well-meaning Christians who wished to select and equip future Christian leaders. As reflected in their lectures, however, they eventually succumb to worldly pressures and turn into spiritual cemeteries for many of their students, hence the title above.

What are those pressures?

For one, Christian scholarship today is defined by knowing not what the bible says but what "scholars" have said about the bible, as well as psychology, history, denominational doctrines and the business of operating a church. Students are graduating with worldly knowledge instead of a deep rooting in the bible and a true proficiency to exegete the Word of God.

For another, seminary curriculum and appointments are driven not by the bible, but by the denominations that hold its purse strings. As a result, instead of the worldliness that affects the denominations being kept in check by a constant flow of fresh biblical reminders from the seminaries, worldliness is being injected into the seminaries by the denominations.

Ultimately, these and other pressures have a spiritual origin. While God is omnipotent, Satan isn’t and therefore must deploy his limited resources strategically. What better way to lead the sheep astray than to have some of his best and brightest minions infiltrate and take up tenured positions at seminaries where they can corrupt the future shepherds of the flocks?

Seminary training is a man-made prerequisite to serving God, whose only prerequisite is the bible: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

What should be done?

1. Retire all female professors, who are biblically forbidden from teaching men, and hire and retain male professors based not on academic credentials but on the adherence of their teachings, writings and lives to the bible.

2. Purge the academic curriculum of all psychology, denominational indoctrination, etc., and drastically increase the time devoted to biblical exegesis, as well as programs designed to mature the students spiritually instead of just academically. Do not graduate students until they start to bear fruits for Christ.

3. Require the churches, denominations and other organizations that provide the financial support to justify their guidelines based on the bible, not their denominational doctrines.
