Seminary Matters

When you become a pastor, you want to be the very best servant for God’s people that you can be. To do that you need training, and there aren’t any shortcuts. You need to spend quality time learning from some of the very best minds alive today, inside the classroom and outside as well. Seminary matters because God’s people matter, and people from around our Synod agree.

“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:14-17, ESV

From Generation to Generation

“You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth. For if you will be careful to do all this commandment that I command you to do, loving the Lord your God, walking in all his ways, and holding fast to him” (Deuteronomy 11:18-23, ESV)

“Therefore I again implore all Christians, especially pastors and preachers, not to be doctors too quickly and to imagine they know everything. There is much waste in imagination and unshrunk cloth. But let ministers daily pursue their studies with dilligence and constantly busy themselves with them.”

Luther, SL 10,29
