Over the years I have seen a number of degree mills. Many of them come and go probably having little impact. However one degree mill that seems to have staying power is Christian Bible College based in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. This degree mill offers all sorts of degrees. From an Associates in Theology, to a Bachelors degree in Counseling, Education, and Theology, to graduate degrees including the MA and MDiv. This obvious degree mill offers ThDs and PhDs in a variety of subjects including Theology, Education, and Religion. I find it hard to believe that CBC has the faculty, staff, and resources to offer PhDs much less such a wide variety of ThDs and PhDs. Christian Bible College allows "students" to "earn" degrees through life credit and by writing a thesis (no course work). Otherwise students do a minimal amount of reading and writing to earn a degree. The tuition is very high for an online only "school". It could cost a student over $2,000 to read a few books, write a few papers, and get a degree from this diploma mill. Of course $2,000 is cheap for a PhD, but it is very expensive considering that CBC is really not offering its "students" any services beyond mailing them work/text books and diplomas. The school boasts "many famous graduates". In looking through their list I only notice one famous graduate, Jack Van Impe. Mr. Impe is certainly not a credible source of information for any serious student. As for accreditation, hold on to your seats for this one, CBC is accredited by AAATI or the American Accrediting Association of Theological Institutions. Of course this is not a real accrediting body and it is certainly not approved by the Dept. of Education. The President of CBC, Mr. Cecil Johnson also runs AAATI. That should raise more than a few eyebrows. I suppose he just accredited his own school. I can't understand why any serious Christian would even want to be associated with such a sham. However the very fact that it has been around as long as it has proves that some do. I suppose they are not all that serious about their education.
