Southern University in Chatanooga, TN has a wonderful Theology Department!

Nancy, I agree with you. I plan on this. God Bless!

If you're going to be evangelizing, I'd recommend taking a course in comparative religions.

Because, if you're going to communicate with someone, it helps to know where they're coming from.

I have taken several theology (religion) courses at various colleges & universities plus correspondence classes from MBI. In my opinion, pick courses that do not reflect unique doctrines or practices by a particular denomination or group, otherwise you will acquire their bias.

Kella and Trey, it is good to know there are still some people who follow the command which is written 2 Timothy 2:14-19, along with the example found in Acts 17:11.

But it is also very sad more and more people don't do these things.

May the Lord bless you both with His wisdom and knowledge, and not that of people.

Blessings Trey. Thank you. It is good to have personal bible study. God is our best teacher. I am going to school for as I mentioned and also because I would like to have organized format and discipline. I have not always thoroughly studied scripture on my own. I would consider myself new at this. Cont.

Cont It is good to hear those who study the bible on their own instead of relying only what the preacher says on Sunday. Keep it up Trey.

Kella,

I've studied the scriptures for a long time. Never had any formal training, but a lot of self study. I pray that the Lord continues to give me knowledge and insight into his word.

I'll also pray that the Lord bless you and your husband in your studies and ministry work.

Thanks everyone. My husband wants to preach. And I love learning bible truths. I want to be a help to my husband and have the knowledge and ready-ness. I could do this w/out school, but I know I will do much better with structure. Also, I want to write books and could really use this. God bless!

1. A family member used to work in a bible college (not a theological college). There was no educational requirement to enter the college, the main requirement was that they could stand up and say how the Lord had saved them. EVERY student was a Christian, not just a 'church-goer'. Every student left the college a preacher capable of showing others the way to Christ. Many theologically trained ministers are not even Christians themselves.

2.Kella3336, I hope that your course of study goes well for you. If you are doing it because God has called you to do so, it will go well and you will leave the college equipped to do what He has called you to do. If you are going only as an educational exercise (which many do sadly) the outcome might not be so good. Every blessing.
---RitaH on 11/12/07


Catherine, thank you. I do feel led in this direction.
---Kella3336 on 11/12/07


Thank you everyone for responding to this blog. It means alot. God bless :-)

**you may be able to earn more money than one who has no formal education but it does not necessarily mean that you are better equipped to serve God.**

In other words, not knowing what you're talking about is as useful as knowing what you're talking about.

Theology is great coupled with your own personal salvation and anointing from the Lord. I have known preachers who could not read and write deliver an excellent sermon. But he did it under the anoiting of the Holy Ghost. We can do anything when we trust Christ and go in His name and not our own.

Yes, I majored in Theology in College, It was AOG. I learned alot, and received great head knowledge, we had many debates, and did expository outlines of each and every verse, we used the Bible as a text book, but lacked a lot of power. With all of my education, there is nothing that compares to the education directly from the throne of God by His Holy Spirit.
---Whisper on 11/8/07


Make sure it is in a Christ centered U. or it is worth squat. I went to a (SJU)Catholic U and minored in theology - they never had us crack a bible (bible wasn't necessary for the course)
---Andrea on 11/8/07


If you have been called by God to study Theology you are so blessed.>>>Have FUN.++
---catherine on 11/8/07


I studied many years in a University and have worked with people for over 25 years. What I have learned is that if you have formal education, you may be able to earn more money than one who has no formal education but it does not necessarily mean that you are better equipped to serve God. God did not require college degrees for the apostles to function or the leaders of the churches of old. The only requirement is the leading of the Holy Spirit and a diligence for knowledge and wisdom and service.
