As John Bear often said: "A degree mill diploma may be a time-bomb in your resume." Well, this bomb seems to have exploded on the pastor of First Baptist West Palm Beach. Read the story below: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/pbccentral/content/local_news/epaper/2006/08/26/s1a_FLOCKHART_0826.html Although I do not agree with my friend Rhet that all schools must be RA, I am staunchly opposed to degree mills. There are too many pastors and preachers running around boasting degree mill rags. IMHO, no degree, which is an honest position without deception, is better than a degree mill diploma. Wilbur M. Smith, who was a respected scholar and taught in three major seminaries, was very up front that he had no seminary degree. I like his integrity and style. IMHO, it is far better to say "I have no degree" than to claim a degree mill diploma that has no credibility. Now, let's hear those comments.
