I have noticed some seminaries that control their students. What do I mean by control? First let me say what I do not mean by control. When I use the word "control", in this context, I do not mean holding to Biblical standards of morality, church attendance, dress styles, etc. Those things should be required of seminary students. When I use the word "control", in this context, I am refering to policies that seem to be directed towards children and not at adults (who actually attend seminary). Some examples are "what" church to attend, how many church services per week the adult student "must" attend, how "many" people the student witnesses to in a week, where the adult student lives, the kind of music the student listens to, etc, etc. Each of these are examples I have seen at various, usually smaller, theological seminaries. While I respect each seminaries right to have the policies it wishes I must wonder if some of this control is too much. After all we are dealing with adults who are current, or future, pastors, missionaries, seminary professors, and community leaders. Do they really "need" to be herded around like a pack of cows? Lovely analogy don't you think :laugh: . So, what do you say? Too much, too little, or just right? Would you attend a seminary that required all unmarried (adult) students to live in a dorm, eat in a lunchroom, attend a "certain" church, and that in general treated adult students as elementary children?
