National Bible Institute: A Case Study in Avoidance

Discussion in 'General Distance Learning Discussions' started by Michael Burgos, Jul 16, 2021.

  1. Came across National Bible Institute in my social media travels. The lack of accreditation is apparent (.org) as is the substandard coursework: One and a half to two years (fifty-three credit-hours) for an Master of Divinity. The ATS et al MDiv requirements are three years of full-time study (e.g., ninety credit-hours). No faculty listed and a bizarre and ambiguous statement of faith that omits standard Christian essentials. The address looks like it belongs to a church. Why does it seem like the majority of substandard schools are Bible colleges and seminaries?

    In many jurisdictions, particularly at the graduate level, they can exercise religious exemptions to many of the regulatory requirements and operate in a legally gray area.

    With the apparent emphasis on ESL/International students... this outfit may even be going for a different market/product...

    Of course it could be a legitimate albeit amateur attempt by a church to generate revenue and spread their beliefs. Of course, with their attempts they’ve made to be vague over their identity though... I wouldn’t be optimistic on that being the case.
