 Recommend a Christian college/university.

Suppose you were asked, 'If money were no object, and you had no current attachments to keep you where you were, what Christian college/university would you attend?' Please answer as best as you can and explain why.

Please DO NOT answer, 'I would not go, because Jesus didn't go to college.' or 'All Christian colleges are for satan-worshippers.' or 'My favorite preacher says you shouldn't go to a Christian college.' etc.

PS. No Leonard Ravenhill 'Bush University' quotes either... as much as I respect brother Len.

 Re: Recommend a Christian college/university.

A few years ago I would have answered "Jesus didn't go to college". But today, I wish that I had of gone when I was younger. I hope you find the right place as the LORD leads.

God Bless

Ian, I would stick with the 'Bush', but if I get such a question, firstly I would ask the person:

What will you do in that Christian University? Some adventure? Wife? Husband? Fun? Good time?

Has the Lord told you to go there?

Why he has called you to go there?

Are these the only reasons, that you have money and you don't have current attachments?

There are far greater things that you should have, before going. Money are not at all important. Imagine God to be limited with money?

'Unction will not cost you a penny, but a broken heart.'

I believe Bible college or university is not adventure or some extra knowledge. Firstly, you need to know are you called to go to christian university, after that He will show you clearly where. Otherwise you are doing great mistake.

I have heard just of one bible school that I would recommend to someone if he is called to go. Maybe there are more, but I haven't heard of other such. I have heard or seen of others, that are 'good places' for anything 'christian' and academic, but I would recommend, 'Run from there.'

 Re: Recommend a Christian college/university.

A very good question. In order to best answer, more information is needed. Let me give examples. If your purpose is to become like Jesus, it would be proper to answer that Jesus did not go to college. If your purpose were to become a preacher or an engineer or an artist, we would need to recommend different schools, since they all have their strengths and weaknesses (or specializations). Personally, I believe there are definitely places for college, whenever training is needed for a field and it can best be provided through a college or university. However, it should never be assumed that any particular education is necessary. Give us more info and we'll give you more of an answer. [edited]

Glenvar Bible School in Cape Town, South Africa. But money isn't the only hindrance...I'd have to learn Africaanse! :) Why? Any school that can turn out a Keith Daniel, Gerhard DuToit, Colin Peckham, Jenny Daniel, Roy Daniel...has got to be pretty good. That's where Gerhard DuToit was saved. Keith Daniel still lectures there. Colin Peckham was the president at one time.

That would be my pick.

 Re: Recommend a Christian college/university.

I would highly recommend

Masters.edu

I am a student at this school. Looking around at the faculty, staff and student at this school, I see a passion for Christ and His Word beyond any other desire. The president of this school is John Macarthur so you will have an idea regarding the theology they are in line with.

I would also recommend you to visit the school and talk to the faculty and students before you decide to addend any school you choose.

I hope this info helps.

 Re:

I believe Christian schools are good and needed, but many go and by going miss Gods will for their life, an example is Zac Poonen who had a opportunity to go to an American school in his youth. But he dident, and if he had went he had destroyed Gods will for his life and he would not have that ministry God has given him today.

I think in todays society when information is so accessable, the one thing we need is discipline to seek God and study his word. We have such possibility to get knowledge about God, and many are acquiring this knowledge, the lack is not knowledge, the lack are those who know God and walk with him. God may use a school in this purpose.... but this is the thing i think we need to "aim" at. To know God.

but other then that id also choose that african school ....
