No Wonder

I was going to let this pass, but I can't. I have to make some comment.

Is it any wonder that Evangelicals have lost credibility in the world? I read where Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS) is going to begin to offer a degree (yes, an accredited degree) in Christian Homemaking.

Now I am a big believer in education. Education is power. It dispels ignorance. It sheds the light of knowledge on the things of our world. I believe everybody ought to have as much education as they can get. But this is .... well .... just silly.

I am reluctant to criticize those who have more education than I do, especially within the realms of their expertise. But this is one thing that just leaves you scratching your head like you do when you see something, and you are sure of what you saw, but you just can't believe you saw what you saw. You know what I mean?

Well, mark this one down ... Southern Baptists did it first.

I had not heard this one, but am only surprised that it wasn't offered at Southern Seminary or New Orleans Seminary first. It goes right along with their women's ministry tracks which poses for theological education. I wonder what you have to cook properly for the final exam.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
