World Christianship Ministries offers Christian Ordination for a fee. Does this seem to be real? Are there people who would actually feel justified in getting credentials from this ministry? Louisiana Baptist University has been a topic of conversation as with most unaccredited schools. There is Andersonville Baptist Seminary, Trinity College of the Bible, and the lists go on. My point in this discussion is to give the people who have actually received credentials from these places a chance to justify and how they feel that such credentials are legitimate and authentic. I also wanted to get the opinion of those like myself, that have reservations, as we say that they either "cut-the-mustard or they don't." I think to me it comes to a simple phrase as Socrates says "Define Your Terms." People can see you in the mirror, and if it is not the real thing, as the Coke commercial says, then they are going to read you like a book. However, I would presume that there might be some that have taken courses from these schools and feel as though they have completed something that is real and legitimate in their eyes. However, if I were in such a position, I would really take a hard look at myself, and wonder how I could accept these type of credentials. I am not judging those that have this, but to say that reality is that you are either authentic or not, and to many it is possible that you have been deceived into thinking that these are legitimate and real. To me, a person who has these credentials and goes to apply for a job and puts these on a resume, is really putting themselves in a bad situation. To the person, who has legitimately attended a valid source, then this is ok (regional accreditation, or some other valid source.) If one is to use these credentials for themselves with no intention of trying to pass them off a legitimate, then I guess that it would not do harm in and of itself. I guess the question I have is why even attempt to do so?
