    Guys:

    I know a second world pastor in a hostile country that must show something official looking to keep his church. He wants to eventually get some real training, but meanwhile if he could show some sort of official certificate or degree it would keep the authorities off his back. I need to find a degree mill that will give him a piece of paper that sounds official. He's not destitute but money is an issue. So what is a cheap degree mill that will hand out a certificate or theology degree?

    Next in line would be a decent distance education for someone like this. Someone recommended him to look at a Birmingham Seminary, which I know nothing about. I think he has a college degree, but no official bible education.

    Thanks.

    If he sends me $10 and a self addressed stamped envelope, I'll just make up a certificate/degree and send it to him. That'll be the equivalent to a diploma mill he'll encounter anywhere else.


    Now, if he's looking for quality online education that costs more of his time and makes more worth out of his effort...there are plenty of options. But if he's just looking for a piece of paper, well if he's got $10 I've got a piece of paper.

    I do not know why anyone would do such a thing as falsify a degree, but if you want a degree in exchange for money, here you go. Pick the major of your choice:

    If they really don't care there's always the world famous St. Luke Evangelical School of Biblical Studies courtesy of the First International Church of the Web... :rolleyes:

    I would probably say though that I don't believe this is the best way to go about it.
