Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is hurting financially.
As of 7/31/17, the situation before SWBTS was absolutely challenging. But with the help of the Lord through faithful trustee and administration leadership, I’m hopeful for the financial future and kingdom impact of this theological institution in the days to come. In the meantime, pray for wisdom for the trustees as they continue to search for a new president who can lead the school through, and far beyond, these days for the sake of the gospel.
Yeah, well … ho-hum; it seems that the school has been living on borrowed money a long time, and a lot of notes will soon come due. It is far more likely that seminaries will continue to decline and fail, because the Christian narrative is false and they’re running out of people to fool.
It so happens that a prominent local Southern Baptist pastor is a Southwestern grad, and among the dumbest people I’ve ever met. I’m not going to say the dumbest because civil engineers spend a lot of time on construction sites, and you meet a lot of substandard minds there. But the pastor I have in mind believes the earth is less than 10,000-years old, that pleasing The Invisible Wizard is more important than parental and marital obligations — the whole fundy schtick. If he’s a typical representative of the sort of morons that school produces, it would be a good thing if it failed and were sold.
