I will never forget how lonely I felt, hanging out at the doors of my church's Bible "Academy". Of course I believe in higher education. There is certainly nothing wrong with Seminary. I just don't understand why I have to pay money to learn the fundamentals of my faith. Like, understanding Bible prophecy and fulfillment.
Since when did learning about the end times and understanding the old testament books become extra-biblical? If ever there was a time we should be understanding end-time events, it's now, and "so much the more as we see that day approaching".
It grieves me that some truth seeker out there can't afford the monetary cost of learning Bible basics.
