    Where did Prophetess Juanita Bynum get her Ph.D.?

    She's a best-selling author and popular speaker in the pentecostal/charismatic camps. Has a show on TBN.

    The biggest mystery is the source of her Ph.D.

    The question has been posted a number of times at Charisma news forums, but no answer has been given. Not a few time, questions about her have been deleted by moderator. (Charisma is publisher of her latest book, "Matters of the Heart."

    Can anyone here help determine the school?

    Thanks.

    Roscoe

    According to the biography on her web site:

    "In June, Bynum received a doctoral degree in theology from Truth for Living Bible College in Jacksonville, Florida. "

    Thanks, Carlos, Mark:


    Someone here contacted the school and was told that it did not grant Ph.Ds.

    Apparently, this institution is a part of Truth for Living Ministries, but is actually called Truth Bible College & Seminary. It's "a member of Oral Roberts University Educational Fellowship."

    I heard a radio interview with Raël. The interviewer said, "You have no scientific training." Raël replied, "I had the best scientific training -- on the Planet of the Elohim."

    Is that the planet with the Moon of Cherubim?

    In this day and age, how does one go about becoming a prophetess or even a lowly apostle? Wouldn't assuming such titles be just a bit presumptuous and a tiny bit vain?

    Not really.......just look at how many have been beatified and made saint by the Vatican in the last few years. And yes...you do have to take a number. :p

    According to First Corinthians 12:28 apostles, prophets and teachers are called by God (given the gifts of apostleship, prophesy and teaching ). The Bible warns against false prophets. Therefore, it can be deduced God still calls prophets. I don't think it is presumptuous for one to refer to oneself as a prophet anymore than it is presumptuous for one to call oneself a minister as God calls both. In Scripture a prophet is one who receives divine revelation and speaks God's word without error or omission. Prophecy is not preaching or teaching . The prophet only speaks or writes God's word without comment (Hebrews 1:1-2). The New Testament prophets speak His words to the local church (Acts 13:1-2). Of course there will be a wide range of opinions on this. This is just a simple, Biblical explanation.

    This is interesting. There seems to be a very close analogy between this religious problem and our familiar accreditation disputes.

    If God creates prophets by calling them, how might this divine action be recognized and verified by mortals? In other words, how might parties external to the purported prophet's own individual relationship with the divine 'accredit' the truth of that relationship?

    I suppose that to some extent the world's various religious traditions serve as alternative and often incompatible accreditors of individual religious experiences and claims.

    This is very directly addressed.

    But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
    And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
    When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

    Deuteronomy 18:20-22

    Attacking a degree mill that is out to scam people is one thing...but I believe you have crossed the line on this one.

    Just how many saints have been "made" in the last few years? How many of those who were canonized lived in the 1950-1999 era?

    I suppose you already know that you must be dead to even be considered for sainthood. So who "takes the number"?

    Degeeinfo is an inappropriate place to make attacks on a particular faith. I take a offense about the comments on the Catholic church. I would suggest that even on the off topic discussions this crosses the line.
