I’m sure this only applies to the careerists among us, but I see too much of it in my own heart.
Time + $$$ + Hard Work = Status (degree)
Status + Hard Work + Time = $$$ + praise of man
I wonder why we are so eager to follow Paul’s doctrine but not his example. (2 Tim 3:10-13)
Most of what really sticks from seminary can be learned from mastering 15 great books.
- Q: Why not read those and serve as an apprentice under a godly pastor?
- A: Without the status (degree) it’s hard to get a job.
Feel free to rebuke me in the comments.
