My Pastor graduated from a TRACS accredited school about 9 years ago, and loves the school he graduated from. He has nothing but positive things to say about the faculty and staff. He is quick to tell you that obtaining a good education is hard work. Yet he said that the school was trying to teach him so much, in so little of time that he really didnt learn all that much. He said that there were so many exams, tests, scripture memorization, papers to write, and so on, that he really didnt have alot of time to take everything in. He said that in all reality you did just enough to pass the the Science test because you had an English paper that was due the next day, and you did just enough on your English paper because you had to remember 20 verses Scripture for your NT Testament Survey class and so on... He said he has learned more out of college than he did in college because he now has the time to study out the subject and truly comprehend and understand what he is studying instead of just remembering some facts to pass a test. He said that he probably would have benefited more from a college like Columbia Evangelical Seminary or even something like Covington where you have time to breathe and think about what you are studying. Has anyone else experienced the same? I mean what good is going to college (and going in debt, my Pastor is still paying for his college 9 yeras later, not tuition but the debt he got into while trying to live while in college) if you can aquire the same knowledge by reading and studying on your own? I am not trying to bragg or anything but he said that I know more about the Bible, Theology, Church History, and even English now then he did when he came out of BIble College, and I have only been saved for 5 yrs and have no kind of college education whatsoever.
