A Superb Article on Seminary & the Church

approvedHershael York, a professor at Southern Baptist Seminary, wrote an excellent article regarding the seminary and the church. In it he writes:

A seminary is not the church. Jesus made teaching and training part of the Great Commission given to his church. He loved the church and gave himself for it. Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages. He has set some in the church. The Scriptures don’t say a single word about seminaries, not only because they did not yet exist, but also because they aren’t integral to God’s plan for making his name great among the nations. The church, on the other hand, is God’s plan for global evangelism and discipleship.

I highly recommend you to read this, especially if you’re in seminary or identify with the seminary culture.
