    The school's health insurance policy is probably cheap since intervenous medications and injections are abiblical.:BangHead:

    Ugggh... what a cop out for not having an on-line program.

    Some people say that you can prove any personal belief using the bible - this school shows it is possible.

    Well we all have our presuppositions I suppose. This article is completely groundless.

    I am trustee chairman at Mid-Continent University in Mayfield, Kentucky. MSU offers online courses, but they are not impersonal. At the other end is a professor who interacts with his on-line students.

    I can't find computers or the internet in the Bible, nor telephones. I'm taking the position that unless they are specifically prohibited, I'm free to use them.

    Ever priced Beeson? Better be willing to pull out a huge wad of doe to get their one on one service. A D.min at a minimum is around $14,000.00.

    I agree - they are just trying to compete and the online route is taking business.

    In Stark Contrast

    In my email inbox recently:

    Over a year ago I expressed some interest in Knox. Since then they have consistently /frequently both called and emailed me. They've also been using Facebook a great deal to market the seminary. They, along with other institutions, are learning that there is massive amounts of revenue available to schools that make an online/distance option available.

    I know the critics would be quick to say that institutions seeking to equip Christian servants/ministers shouldn't be revenue driven, but the reality is if they don't get it, they die.

    I have what appears to be a Russian (I think Baptist) church in my neighborhood...but its
    Hard to get close to them. They meet for services in an arminian Baptist church right after their services. They do not speak English in service but they are growing where the americanchurch is floundering. Is there sometipe of movement among the Baptists for Russians or do you think there independents?

    :applause: I was thinking the same thing.
    Just like I told my sister when she discovered the church I was attending had a bus. I see no verse anywhere that says thou shalt not have a church bus.
