Learn Hebrew for Free

June 27, 2017

Dr. William Barrick of Masters Seminary offers two semesters of Hebrew grammar and two semesters of Hebrew syntax online for free. Not everybody learns well this way, but some do. If you can master the courses well enough to pass the entrance exam, you won’t need to take them at Central Seminary.

“Who Made You the Authority?”

June 26, 2017

Central Seminary alumnus David DeBruyn notes, “The Internet has not only granted full democracy to all ideas, it has tended to flatten out all judgement, and scrap a sense of hierarchy of trustworthiness.” He adds, “The democracy of ideas is simultaneously the pooling of ignorance.”

Sanford is home to Beeson Divinity School and is the alma mater of Southern’s R. Albert Mohler. Hopefully Alabama Baptists will act decisively and sever its ties if the school sanctions this alliance.

My friend Andrew Snelling, an Aussie geologist and Bible-believing Christian, has been denied a permit to study and collect geological samples from the Grand Canyon, despite the fact that he has received such permission many times in the past. I was a part of a study trip through the Canyon a few years back with him. It was a stunning journey through the handiwork of God. So much for the spirit of free inquiry.
