Dr. Mike Heiser brings some very strong arguments for churches training faithful people for ministry in-house, instead of the broken system of Seminary. This message could not be more timely, in light of current trends in Seminaries closing and new impending government laws/restrictions on Christian discipleship.
If you’re in a PhD program planning to teaching at a seminary or Christian college, make other plans or plan on being an online instructor. This is a trend. Few schools will be left standing in a few years…. https://t.co/BUGt7fP86q

The drafters of AB 2943 claim they want to outlaw so-called conversion therapy. But the actual language is so broad it could cover books, videos, and other educational materials, courses and conferences. Even advertising or promoting them is banned.https://t.co/LF933he2KC

The only thing I would tweak of Heiser’s view is that a Presbytery recognizes those already doing their called ministry, instead of 1 or even a few staff pastors making a determination of who is “ready” or “official.” I define Presbytery as a group of gifted church leaders (elders) from 1 or more local churches, who fast and pray and lay on hands in order to recognize the matured calling & gifting of a person, who already has been consistently effectively doing the works of Jesus and spreading the words of Jesus within the Body and outside it.
