To all who have an ear: Please see the following article/quote by Martin Luther. The question I pose is this? Is there a need for an M.Div. degree "without Languages?" Seems like a misnomer, oxymoron, or some such, to me! An M.Div. "without languages" is not much, if any better than my 96 Hour Diploma of Theology I earned from Mid America in the mid 1980s. Let me hear your thoughts! http://eric-carpenter.blogspot.com/2010/05/luther-on-original-languages.html Luther said it well, I cannot improve on it. I believe--he would believe that a pastoral/preaching/ministry degree without Biblical Languages would be just near about worthless too!!! :smilewinkgrin: "That is all!"
