    Founded in 1968 by the late Dr. B. Myron Cedarholm, to train young people for the work of the N.T. church. (Dr. C did not hold to or with a "universal, invisible, something or another".)

    I was a senior who transferred in to the inaugural student body of Maranatha in 68 and received the first MABS from their grad program in Dec. 70. School receives only high marks from me.

    Dr. Cedarholm could preach faster than anyone I knew and always bordered on the Landmark and Baptist bride fringe. Set up a strong academic program (now fully accredited), strong local church involvement, and strong ancillary activities such as sports (football, etc), drama, and music.

    When asked what he would be if he couldn't be a Baptist, he simply said:

    "Ashamed".

    I have never been to Maranatha. I have heard a lot of good things about the school. In fact, my pastor is a Marantha graduate. He is doing a great job here at Trinity Baptist Church, so they must be turning out a pretty good product!

    I would guess that the bulk of the "fundies" on the BB have ties to Maranatha. Many of us are alums and proud of that heritage. Others have been influenced by MBBC grads as pastors, teachers, missionaries etc.

    On the Fightin Fundamentalist Forum (on which I am also a frequent contributor) we hear hundreds of horror stories from kids (now adults) working through unbelieveable angst and bitterness from attending unnamed psycho-ifb schools (like one in Hammond and one in Longview, TX).

    While no where near as perfect as if WE were in charge, Maranatha engenders a better memory for most who attended and a large percentage are serving God faithfully.

    Opinion only. :rolleyes:

    I have a sneeking suspiscion about what is that difference. Like BJ, MBBC was founding faculty had a collegial relationship with each other. Unlike those Other Unnamed Schools, that were founded by men who sought to produce clones of themselves. Hence, their grads were not allowed to exceed the level of learning of those founders.

    Just one man's opinion, I am y'rs in His service,
