This is a sincere question: does anyone know of a place to get a conservative theological education where being a Christian and living a certain lifestyle are not prerequisites?
I have not done significant research but the few Bible Colleges/Seminaries I know about or have heard about require a prospective student to at least:
- Be a Christian
- Be part of a church
- Agree to live a certain lifestyle
- Answer questions about their current/past lifestyle
- Have character recommendations from others
I can’t say why these stipulations are part of the acceptance process to these schools, but it leaves me wondering if it would benefit someone who does not fulfill the above requirements to have the opportunity to study theology in the classroom.
