What’s the Seminary For?

A few months ago, a first year seminarian and I were doing home visits. One of those we visited is Dr. Norman Nagel, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology. As we were about to leave, I asked Dr. Nagel to offer his counsel to a first year seminarian. Here his is response: “The Seminary is there so that the Lord can fill you with lots of His Word, so that when you are a pastor He can take them from you as He needs them.”
That, my friends,is what the Seminary is for.
