Other Schools / Re: Andersonville Theological Seminary
« on: May 23, 2019, 10:18:58 PM »
I graduated with an Associate of Biblical Studies and Bachelor of Theology from Andersonville. There were some courses that were easy and some that were hard. I probably got called to my church partially as a result of having a degree there and just enrolled for my Master's at Louisiana Baptist. Only bad things I can say is that they are KJV only and I am not but I knew that going in and while Liberty and Luther Rice used to take undergrad degrees from there for entry into their Master's program, they no longer do (Thus why I am going to LBU.)  Also they talked about getting accredited but recently backed out of doing that. In your situation though, its probably a good route to take. God Bless!

Hyles-Anderson College / Re: Question about HAC/FBC Auditoriums?

I notice that for special events they use the old auditorium. I'm guessing it's because the new one would look too empty.

IMHO: Paul Chappell is the only chance that the IFB has of bridging the gap between the "old guard" and the "new IFBs".

Chappell isn't perfect but he hasn't been accused of "alleged adultery" as Hyles (who probably did commit adultery). Nor does he cover up crimes like Trieber does. If anyone brings up the Jeremy Whitman case, we all know the full story and it was beyond Chappell's control after he was fired for drugs. Trieber still hasn't released an official statement or reply to that video.

Certainly Chappell is better at getting "normal" millennial IFBs than Andy-boy in Arizona getting the "crazy/radical" millennial IFBs that says Orlando Pulse Night Club victims deserved what they got.

That is what I believe as well.
It appears to me that the IFB world has divided, maybe splintered is a better word, into multiple 'camps'.
1. You have the old timers who still insist on the old paths and are led mostly by the old guard. This group is in danger of becoming extinct within the next generation, IMO.

2. You have the New IFB's who unlike the old path-ers embrace technology and use it in their lives and in their ministries. (Many old pathe-rs are still fighting ipads and phone apps VS 'real Bibles' and many don't want screens or drums in their services.)These are led (mostly) by the Millennials who also don't follow the KJVO or pants on female sacred doctrines.

3. There is a third group who I am able to observe first hand in my county/town/area. They allow women to wear pants, teens to wear shorts and use upbeat, southern gospel in their services. Many are KJVO and many preachers add 'and-uh' to the end of their sentences when they preach. This group tends to rally around Camp Meetings.

4. There is another group I have seen online and they follow the Old Path doctrines, standards and convictions but have mostly shed their in your face arrogant attitudes. They have also shed some of the more extreme old path traits...like covert racism and a worship of America.

And there are other sets and subsets of IFB-ism...think Steve Anderson for one.
I think Paul Chappell has been able to keep one foot in at least a couple of the major camps, but as you can see from the fff, he's hardly loved by all.

This is just me talking based on my experience.
What do you IFB-ers think about my assumptions?
Could you give me an example of the third set of IFBs? Would Victory Baptist in North Augusta be one?

And I'm not sure if he'd be the big dog at Neal's church with Neal's father still around.

The Fighting Forum / Re: Ohio church calls new pastor.

Notice he said he went to bible college near Chicago without naming the school. He isn't the first HAC grad (actually I dont think he graduated) that doesn't want to mention the name of his alma mater.

Hyles-Anderson College / Re: Update on First Baptist Church of Hammond
« on: March 28, 2017, 09:28:37 AM »
I think they made a big mistake in not relocating the church to the St John area.  I'd suggest selling the HAC campus and moving what's left to Hammond but how many families are going to want to send their 18 year old daughter to school there?

Other Schools / Re: From fake college to real college

Mid America was the only one I found that had this policy. The SBC ones want an explanation of the reasons behind the divorce and I've heard Mohler and Patterson say they wouldn't recommend a divorced man to pastor, but they don't have the blanket policy Mid America has. Luther Rice encloses a recommendation of them from Charles Stanley who has been divorced, so I don't think they'd have a problem with it either.

I didn't even bother to ask Southern since I am not reformed. SWBTS would be top on my list except like all the SBC school they charges an outragous internet student fee (Something like $270 a class on top of regular tuition.) Another school the original poster might want to try is Mid America outside of Memphis. I didn't ask them if they'd accept an unaccredited degree since I'm divorced and they have a very strict divorce policy.
