Credential-Crazy! (Christian Blogger)

Paul never went to seminary.

If you think formal credentials are all they’re cracked up to be, you haven’t been paying attention! Our leaders, here and elsewhere, have credentials out the wazoo–and look at the mess they’ve made of things. Who could do worse?

St. Paul did not need a paper from a seminary to preach and teach.

2 Corinthians 3:1 | Credentialism is Killing the Church

This essay in the humaneffort blog lays it on the line. “Credentialism” is killing the Church! Not that God will allow the whole Church to fail; but rather large chunks of it might be washed away if we don’t watch out.

I continue to display work by other Christian bloggers. I’m convinced that Big Tech suppresses our viewership, and that therefor we ought to help each other.

  1. The Word says Paul was taught at the feet of Gamliel, a priest, but you are right that does not create anything like a university diploma. He received his training and education directly from the Lord. We have the Scriptures which we should study, but depending on the Holy Spirit to highlight things to us as we read.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement. I post what I prepare for Sunday class. This topic had good engagement from the class.

  3. The first century church was not highly organized. Elders were expected to set a fine example and deacons admonished to be serious, but I don’t believe for a millisecond that there were degrees in theology involved.
