Irrespective of my struggle with Calvinistic thought, I couldn’t help but enjoy a bit of levity when I came across a seminary with “elected faculty”.
Scroll down the list to find the “appointed faculty”.
Who knows why, but my kids’ Dr. Seuss book on Sneetches comes to mind – something about those with stars on their bellies and those without stars on their bellies and tying all that in to the doctrine of election. Whatever.
Feel free to comment on ‘theme’ verses. Here are a couple that came to my mind:
- John 15:16 I [president of SEBTS] have elected you to [teach] at SEBTS and produce [lectures] that will last
- Heb 9:27 For you’ve been appointed once to [teach] and then to die [or maybe receive job offer]
