A DIVINTY SCHOOL WOULDN'T DARE TELL YOU JESUS IS GOD BUT A SEMINARY OF COURSE IT WOULD



What's the difference between a seminary and a divinity school? ... A divinity school, is a theological

institution preparing men and women for ordained ministry, but it is directly related to a university. The basic distinction between a div school and a seminary is that the divinity school is a professional school part of a larger university and is analogous to other professional schools within the university. For example, Duke University has several professional schools that fall under the jurisdiction of the university - Duke Law School, Duke Med School, and, of course, Duke Div School.

A relatively recent trend is the development of seminaries by churches. Still rare in the U.S., these schools may offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees that prepare students to understand and apply the Bible and theology in vocational ministry. A seminary prepares students to be priests, ministers, or rabbis. Therefore they have their own schools that cannot be intertwined with other individuals representing a different denomination.

In 1948, MLK Jr. attended his first integrated school, Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania. This school taught him how to run a church as a pastor.

In 1955 MLK became Dr. Martin Luther King when he earned his PhD on theology from Boston University.

This school taught him how to think. For Dr. King to have come out of a theology school accepting Jesus as a God would have been a disservice falling short of a universal way of thinking about the world, the universe, and society. Theology works by asking very basic questions about the nature of human thought, the nature of the universe, and the connections between them and God rather than a personal savior.
