Why would school keep people loving their brethen? I do not understand this reasoning. It was in seminary that I formed very close bonds with other preachers who were trying to make it, and trying to get through graduate school, and with my mentors and teachers whom I still love and respect.
Virginia Union University's School of Theology, one of the most reknowned in the country, has NO class for whooping. In fact, you'd probably get sat down if you tried it in class-lol. I learned to whoop in the holiness/penticostal church where I was spiritually raised. But it was also in this church where I also learned character, integrity, submission, and how to study, study, study for hours so as not to make bufoonery of the preaching event. But it was in seminary that I learned how to correctly construct a sermon and how NOT to BUTCHER scriptures by prooftexting.
We never learned how to beg for money at seminary either....we learned how to properly budget and administrate church finances. We also learned ETHICS! Most of the begging I have seen has not been by the well educated and trained, but I suppose some educated preachers do it too, if folks aren't giving as they should. Who begs MORE than the so-called "Bishops"? Interestingly, those who have negative perceptions about seminary are often those who have not been. I wonder why these people feel so strongly about seminary, since they have little to no facts upon which to base such feelings. Perhaps, this "lie" has been perpatuated through the years by a few leaders who thought education was not of God--but in this age, we should be exploding myths and challenging error.
This is no disrespect to you or your bishopric Sir, but as a Bishop also, I must speak what I know to be truth also-- and I simply see no basis for such conculsions as you and others make. I agree with Brother Adriel, we cannot make such sweeping generalizations....it boes become mudslinging. The truth is-- there are bad eggs in every sector of ministry.
