The Apostle Paul to Timothy
I Timothy 3:10-13 "And let these also first be proved (experienced, tested); then let them USE (perform) THE OFFICE ...,
"For they that have USED THE OFFICE ... well PURCHASE to themselves a good DEGREE, and great boldness (confidence),..."
Apostle Paul is referring to the 'Offices' of Bishop (Overseers) Elder, and Deacon, but his "purchase to themselves a good degree" is a monumental - though somewhat mysterious - statement.
Amazingly, the word "DEGREE" in this Scripture, meant in the Greek Language then, exactly as it does today . . . which is why Universities from many lands choose the Greek Word 'DEGREE' for this attainment of a "new stature and confidence." [See FOOTNOTE-1]
Dear Pastor/Minister, Teacher, Fellow-Laborer in Christ: All evidence gained from researching the most effective Ministries and Ministers around the world, indicates that you could wisely use a 'Higher Degree', preferably a Doctor's Degree, such as "Doctor of Divinity."
[NOTE of SIMPLICITY: "Candidacy" for Doctor of Divinity is applicable to anyone in a genuine "Ministering position" - including Pastors, Christian College and Christian Day-School Teachers, Christian Counselors and Psychologists, Christian Medical Doctors and Lawyers, Evangelists, Missionaries, Judges, Chaplains, etc. (This Degree, however does have "Strictly Limited Availability." [FOOTNOTE-2])
Though it has wide application, for simplicity's sake, the following "Message" is written as if the reader is a Preacher, with Pastors, Preachers, and Teachers being the predominate holders of this Title and Degree.
We at Cambridge Theological Seminary are absolutely certain - based on evidence from every Denomination, from many Independent and Non-Denominational Ministries, and from every land . . . that if you had a "Doctor of Divinity Degree" - backed up by a "Solid Transcript" - from a well-known and large Bible Seminary with a deeply respected name like "Cambridge" . . . .your Ministry would be greatly enhanced as follows:
Cambridge Theological Seminary
> > > Your Church Members (and/or those to whom you minister, students, etc.,) will give greater heed to your teaching if you had a Doctor of Divinity, making your ministry more effective;
> > > Your Board of Deacons, Elders, staff, trustees, or business associates, will be more apt to listen to your counsel if you had a Doctor of Divinity, and thus easier to lead;
> > > Your Community and City Council will be more respectful, and more likely to consider your thoughts worth considering, if you had a Doctor of Divinity Degree;
> > > Even your family and friends, will listen a little better, and accept your advice more readily, if you had a Doctor of Divinity;
> > > Any letters written - whether to newspaper Editor, Mayor, Congress-person, or any other "Official" - will carry more 'weight' . . . with a Doctor of Divinity Title supporting your name;
> > > It will even help your children-and-grandchildren see you in a new and more powerful light if you had a Doctor of Divinity, . . . and certainly it will help even more in time . . . as they mature;
> > > Fellow Pastors will give your teachings and Scriptural positions more consideration, if you had a Doctor of Divinity Degree;
> > > Certainly, you will find your influence to "win souls" increased if you had a Doctor of Divinity, [more on this below];
> > > For sure, you will find even strangers consider your words more seriously - whatever they may be about - if only you had a Doctor of Divinity Title;
> > > Think about this:
Every time you signed your name "Dr.", "D.D.", "D.Div." or "Doctor of Divinity", it would have greater impact, and would enhance all of your words for the Kingdom of God that ever preceded - or ever would follow . . . even after you've gone on to Glory: if you had a Doctor of Divinity Title;
> > > If you are quite young - say under 30 - a Doctor of Divinity will greatly add to people "perceiving you" as wiser, more capable, and more mature;
> > > The older you are, the more everyone will respect you for having the discipline and wisdom to "go after" a Doctor of Divinity . . . at your age;
> > > If you are middle-aged, people will perceive you getting a Doctor of Divinity as the natural "next step" . . . for someone who is still moving up . . . instead of someone stagnate, and ready to wind down.
Not only do we believe you could wisely "use" a Doctor of Divinity, . . . which great bodies of evidence indicate is absolutely true . . .
. . . but we also believe that the Kingdom of God "needs" for you to have a Doctor of Divinity, and we further believe - and this most importantly - that you have "a Right" . . . and "a Privilege" . . . and even "a Duty before God" . . . to be credentialed with a Title of "Doctor", AND USE IT WISELY . . . as Paul Admonished.
The Doctor of Divinity is a "Tool" to build the Kingdom of God, and a "weapon" to fight the kingdom of Darkness. We beg of you to not continue "fighting the Good Fight" without this valuable weapon in your spiritual arsenal.
As you probably know, the "Doctor of Divinity" (D.D.) has been the "Most Prestigious Degree" throughout the centuries, initiated by Cambridge University of England - as part of the "Ox-bridge University System" with Oxford [just down the road a little ways].[FOOTNOTE 3]
What you may not know, is that around the world, the Doctor of Divinity is considered the "Highest Degree", and highest Title attainable in many lands, and is "Officially Followed in Rank and Prestige":
Official Doctorate Degree Ranking
> > First Rank: Doctorate of Divinity
> > Second Rank: Doctorate in Jurisprudence (Law)
> > Third Rank: Doctorate in Medicine
> > Fourth Rank: Doctorate in Sciences
> > Then all others

Insight - Status of the Messenger
FACT: The power to "Transform Lives" is in the "Message" of the Gospel.
FACT: The power "To Get People To Listen" to the Gospel is in the "Messenger" of the Gospel.
[NOTE ASIDE: Without dispute, the Holy Spirit is the "Ultimate Power", who must lead and bless all we do, and He is ALWAYS FAITHFUL to do His part . . . but few of us have had 3,000 baptisms from one message on one day . . . nor did Apostle Paul . . . and even Apostle Peter did: only once at Pentecost.
Truthfully, Apostle Paul, like many of us, often struggled to get even small numbers, and often disputed greatly for days to win converts One-at-a-Time. So it is in this light of God's Spirit blessing our effort as He Divinely sees best . . . and "we humans-doing-our-very-very-best" - we proceed.]
Please consider the following example:
If you advertise that you are going to bring a "Simple Salvation Message on being Born-Again from John Chapter-3 next Lord's Day", would that increase your attendance?
If you advertise that the "President of the University" nearest you will bring a "Simple Salvation Message on being Born-Again from John Chapter-3 next Lord's Day", would that increase your attendance?
If you advertise that the "Governor of your State" will bring a "Simple Salvation Message on being Born-Again from John Chapter-3 next Lord's Day", would that increase your attendance even more?
If you advertise that "Kurt Warner, Rick Warren, Sarah Palin, Mel Gibson, or Rush Limbaugh" - will bring a "Simple Salvation Message on being Born-Again from John Chapter-3 next Lord's Day", would that increase your attendance even more?
In each case, the power of the Gospel is not changed one iota, but the ability to get people to listen to that Gospel can be greatly enhanced by the "Status of the Messenger!" Therein lies the great Advantage of having a Title of Doctor in our modern, education-mad world.
Let us suppose even further, that in each scenario listed above, that "You" prepared the same message for each speaker! In greatest likelihood, the "response" . . . to "Your" Gospel Message by the hearers . . . would be more effective, based on the status of the messenger: thus the advantage of a Doctor of Divinity for you.
Because of such 'status'. . . Billy Graham could make a commercial urging Christians to give money to a particular "cause" . . . with more success then you and me . . . combined. Status of the Messenger [FOOTNOTE 4]
Dear Fellow Minister:
Please know that if you have an Doctor of Divinity, all that you "say", all that you "do", all that you "write", all that you "counsel", all that you "advocate", all that you "preach-&-teach", . . .
. . . and all that "you are" will be magnified . . . Multiplied . . . and MAXIMIZED . . . all the rest of your life. . . even after you have gone on to heaven . . . all because of "One Decision" and a "Financial Pittance" . . . invested in your Doctor of Divinity.
Why do we offer a FREE Doctor of Divinity for qualified serious-&-sincere Christian Ministers?
Sadly, for 30 years (as an International Seminary) we did not!
However, a group of us retired Bible Scholars were discussing, "WHAT IS THE SINGULAR MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO . . . with some means and money . . . but very little time . . . to further the Cause of Christ and His Kingdom?
We knew we could jointly write a good book, or separately, we could write many books . . . but the truth is - we agreed - it seemed the LAST THING this world needed was "Another-Scholarly-Book" that few people would read and even fewer people would understand!
To make a long, prayerful journey seem very short, we decided we should pool our resources behind the most global, trans-denominational Conservative Bible Seminary - Cambridge Theological Seminary - and see to it that EVERY qualified Bible Minister in the world . . . from Baptist to Full Gospel . . .
. . . received the POWERFUL IMPACT . . . of a Doctor's Title added to their name . . . to greatly magnify their influence for the Kingdom of Christ in their sphere of Ministry!
That's how this program was born!
If you qualify - as an honest, sincere, genuine, Bible Minister of the Lord Jesus Christ - seeking to get men and women Born-Again, you can "Legally-&-Legitimately" have the Doctor of Divinity Title added to your name . . .
. . . within 48-hours at a cost of ZERO DOLLARS and ZERO CENTS!
Surely this seems "too good to be true" it has to be!!! . . . to which we add "so is salvation by Grace-through-faith" . . . Ask almost anyone what they "think" and they will tell you "there is a catch, somewhere!"
However, there is a very easy way to find out the truth for yourself, very easily and very quickly!
Simply fill out the application, sign the Statement of Faith with your belief in the "Authority of Scripture" and in "World Evangelism" . . . and if you qualify, we will have one of forty-four-satellites world-wide to grant you a Doctor of Divinity within 48-hours: honest, legitimate and hopefully - one that will be well-deserved and well-used by you.
If you are too old, too skeptical, and just can't believe such good news could be true: simply try it an see! You'll be ETERNALLY GLAD you did! If you are not afraid to talk to a stranger, just pick up the phone and call my personal office: 1.740.685.2159
NOTE! We do have a lot of calls and can't talk to each person all afternoon or evening, but we'd love to get acquainted. Please ask anything you want. Question our beliefs, goals, and purposes, as deeply and frankly as you wish. We welcome it!

The Greatest Christian Leaders of our Era, have Wisely Seen the Need for a Doctorate!
If you've lived awhile . . . recall how many times over the years you have heard the following:
> Dr. Billy Graham ... met today with President Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, Bush,...
> Dr. Billy Graham ... opens his City Wide crusade tonight in Some-City USA, ...
> Dr. Billy Graham ... released his latest book today selling X-number of copies sold...
From 1947-48 through 1990, I'm not sure I ever heard, or saw in print, just "Billy Graham", or just "Reverend Billy Graham". It was always Dr. Billy Graham, or in some cases, the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham.
The world never dreamed "The Reverend Dr. Billy Graham" was really just "Billy Graham" . . . as Billy Graham didn't have an earned or accredited Ph. D., he had an Honorary Doctor of Divinity.
Yet "plain" Billy Graham became the most influential religious leader of the 20th century . . . due in part to being "Doctor" Billy Graham, a rising young minister of great authority, and highest credentials: someone worth listening to, reading his books, and seeking his advice.
And seek his advice they did. Graham met with every US President from Harry Truman to Nixon-Carter-Reagan through George "W" Bush, whom Graham led to a "born-again" relationship with Jesus Christ.
Dr. Graham had the "ear of US Presidents", long BEFORE he had the "ear of the world." Please know that Dr. Billy Graham diligently sought the ear of presidents, BEFORE they sought him. Dr. Graham diligently "sought out" President Truman - pushed, pleaded, and finagled, for a meeting with Truman - quite some time, before getting one.
Meeting with President Truman got Graham's picture on the front page of leading US Newspapers, which made him famous, which caused reporters to interview him, in which he always maintained Presidential confidence - while giving Presidents highest praise and regard - which caused presidents to want to meet with him again and again: Great publicity for both, a win-win situation!
Dr. Billy Graham - was and is - much more shrewd than he 'appears' . . . which is also part of his wise shrewdness in a good way. Dr. Graham had enough 'common sense to act and behave common' . . . and wasn't stupidly arrogant and snobbish as so many "TV celebrity and big-name Ministers are today.
[NOTE: There is a lesson here for ministers. . . if they can learn it. Dr. Billy Graham was "wise in his generation" - as wise as the worldly leaders in media such as Ted Turner and Katherine Graham. Sadly, most ministers are not "wise (shrewd) as serpents" as Jesus commands us, . . . and as Jesus lamented - that most Christian Leaders are not as wise as the Children of the world. (More later on this parable)]
Dr. Billy Graham was listed as the 8th-Most-Influential Person of the 20th Century by Gallup. [SOURCE: Gallup, Wikipedia] It is indeed amazing . . . that a "Country Confederate Preacher" is ranked ahead of many thousands of presidents and world leaders over the last 100 years!
Do you really think young Billy Graham. . . would ever have gotten to meet with American Presidents without a Doctor's Degree? Yet it was not an "earned-accredited" Degree from Harvard or Yale, . . . but a Degree earned by his faithfulness, sincerity and commitment, built upon his Bible School education, a Doctor of Divinity: just like the one you can have, if you can meet the requirements, exemplifying faithfulness, sincerity and commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Billy Graham's son Franklin is even more pronounced in his "credentials". Franklin claims the title of "Doctor" and the whole world so acknowledges him. He furthermore claims the title Reverend as an ordained minister. Do you know what Denomination/Ministers' Association ordained him? He was simply ordained by a fellow pastor.
Yet because Franklin - like his dad - "assumes authority", "acts with authority" and "claims authority", his Doctor's Degree is accepted by the world, and both he and the Kingdom of God benefit in the process . . .
all because of his foresight to add the Title "Doctor" to his name - not an earned Ph. D. - but an Honorary Doctor of Divinity.
Somehow, Billy Graham knew in his early years ... wisely and shrewdly ... that he needed the title "Doctor" - so he got one - neither accredited nor earned: but a true Doctor of Divinity none the less.
My Brother, My Sister, my Friend, my fellow-Minister: . . . how old will you be . . . when you finally see the need . . . that you can wisely use a "Doctors Degree"?
Likewise, was Dr. Jerry Falwell a decade after Graham. Even Dr. Falwell's most vicious enemies and/or critics-opponents - such as Phil Donahue, Dan Rather, Larry King, Ted Koppel, and Rosie O'Donnell - addressed him respectfully as "Dr. Falwell."
Dr. Jerry Falwell was on the cover of major news weekly magazines in the 1980's, even being credited with getting Ronald Reagan into the White House. Some called Dr. Falwell the 'Most Powerful Man in the World' for being able to get U.S.A. Presidents elected.
This author has been in and around television and radio ministry for over 30 years - even owned a Christian television cable station outright - went to National Religious Broadcasters over the years, to Washington DC many times, was invited to meet with Reagan at the White House, was invited to meet with Pat Robertson when he decided to run for President, etc., etc., and from those many experiences, is now 99.99% certain of the following:
The world had no idea then - or even now - that "Dr. Falwell" was really just "Bro Jerry" . . . and no one ever suspected that he didn't have an "Accredited, Earned, Doctor's Degree!"
Furthermore, the world had - and has - no idea that Dr. Jerry Falwell - not only didn't have an accredited Doctor's Degree - but in fact, "Dr. Falwell" . . . didn't even have an accredited Masters Degree, or a Bachelors Degree. Amazingly, he didn't have a 4-year Degree of any kind!
"Dr. Falwell" attended a three-year program at the unaccredited Baptist Bible College, Springfield, Missouri, started under the guidance of another great pastor, "Dr. J. Frank Norris" from Ft. Worth, TX . . . (who also didn't have a "state-accredited, earned "Doctor's Degree")- but they both realized they needed the title of "Doctor" for greater influence, sought a Doctor of Divinity, and certainly did use it wisely after they received one!
Because Dr. Falwell, and Dr. J. Frank Norris assumed authority, spoke with authority, claimed authority, and acted with authority, the whole world respectfully called them by the title they claimed: Dr. J. Frank Norris, and Dr. Jerry Falwell: and their ministries have been among the most profound in the history of the USA: thanks in part to the title of "Doctor."
Had the world known Jerry Falwell had no accredited formal education, the media who despised him so terribly, would have mocked and ridiculed him mercilessly - and sought to drive him from the national spotlight - making him hide in shame: making his name a "laughingstock" like Dan Quayle, Tonya Harding, John Edwards, or Monica Lewinski.
The greater truth is, "Dr." J. Frank Norris (pastored America's Two-Largest Churches simultaneously for years), Dr. Jerry Falwell (a tremendous ministry), Dr. Robert Schuller (a tremendous ministry), Dr. Billy Graham (America's Greatest Evangelist), Dr. Jack Hyles (Pastored the World's Largest Sunday School), Dr. Walt Hanford, Dr. Harold Sightler, Dr. Oral Roberts (Oral Roberts University), Dr. Ralph Rice, Dr. Donald Howard Jr.,(founder of ACE Ministries), Dr. Bill Bright (Campus Crusade for Christ);
Dr. Adrian Rogers, the Dr. Bob Joneses I, II & III (all of BJU University Fame), Dr. Lee Roberson (started Tennessee Temple University, a major Tennessee University), Dr. Rod Parsley, Dr. Pat Robertson, Dr. Fred Price, Dr. T.D. Jakes, Dr. Jack Van Impe, Dr. Tim LaHaye (of the Left Behind Series), Dr. Hal Lindsey (Late Great Planet Earth), Dr. John Rawlings, Dr. Dallas Billington (largest Church in Country of yester-year), Dr. Roy Thompson, Dr. David Gibbs, Dr. Oliver B Greene, Dr. J.Vernon McGee, Dr. Franklin Graham;
Dr. Greg Dixon, Dr. Tom Watson, Dr. Tom Malone, Dr. Bruce Cummings; Dr. Harold Henniger, Dr. Curtis Hutson, Dr. Jimmy Swaggart, Dr. John R. Rice (led the nation's Largest Revival Weekly Newspaper and Bible Conferences), Dr. Lester Roloff (had a tremendous ministry) Dr. D. James Kennedy (Premier Presbyterian Ministry), Dr. Marilyn Hickey, Dr. Mike Murdoch, Dr. Benny Hinn, Dr. Perry Stone, Dr. Eddie Long, and even Dr. David Paul Yonggi Cho, pastor of the Worlds Largest Local Church in South Korea . . .
. . . and there are thousands more . . .
. . . NONE of them earned an "Accredited Ph.D." - but they ALL WERE WISE ENOUGH TO SEE THAT THEY NEEDED A TITLE OF "DOCTOR" . . .
. . . ARE YOU THIS WISE? . . .
. . . and if you are not this wise just now . . . how old will you be . . .when you see that you, also, can wisely use a Doctor's title? . . .
. . . and how long will you have left to Minister for God . . . once you see that you need this title?
> > as a 'TOOL' to build the Kingdom of God, and
> > as a 'WEAPON' to fight the Kingdom of Darkness!
[To see a larger list of some of the greatest ministers and their ministries, who used the Doctor of Divinity to wonderful advantage, see Well-Known Ministers who used a "Doctor of Divinity" Program Degree-&-Title-Premise
So, they secured a Doctor of Divinity and the world listened - and still listens - to what they say, and masses follow their lead, because they "claimed Christ with great authority" - and used a title to match."
Some of these men - even among the very greatest of them - didn't even graduate from high school!
If you think we are being critical of these men, you are greatly missing the point!
We are not criticizing, but applauding them exceedingly, . . . for being wise enough to see the need to be properly represented to the world they sought to influence . . . with the Gospel Teaching!
We greatly applaud these men for being "as wise as the world in their generation," in knowing how to influence, to reach, to preach, to teach, to save - multitudes - in their generation, where education is greatly respected.
Please consider the following Parable of Jesus: Recall Christ's summation, or admonition, or approbation, or lamentation or His 'moral-of-the-story' - for "The Unjust Steward" (it's not really the easiest parable to get a full grasp of!)
JESUS TAUGHT in Luke 16:8:
"And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation WISER than the children of light."
The last statement is what I call your attention to: Jesus lamented that "the children of this world, in their generation, are wiser than the children of light."
[GREEK NOTE: This is not the word 'wise' as in "the wisdom of the Lord", but 'wise' as in Jesus commanding us to be "wiser than serpents": [which is a shrewdness of wisdom.]
A general consensus of many of God's greatest minds from Dr. John R. Rice to Dr. Adrian Rogers, and from Dr. Jerry Falwell to Dr. D. James Kennedy, was that 'we the Church' - as the people of God, doing the work of God - generation by generation, are almost always behind the world . . . in understanding how to reach and persuade our own generation.
One of the areas where the "Children of the world are wiser in their generation than the Children of Light," is even in the simple concept of 'putting our best foot forward.'
The world knows enough to carefully design the "cover of the book" - as well as writing a good book. Sadly, we Christians often focus on writing a really good book - but neglect the cover so badly - that few people are ever attracted to the book, enough to open it up and to see what's inside.
The world, amazingly, sometimes gives as much time to writing the "Title of the Book" as to writing the book itself! Thus the world "writes inferior books" . . . but sells many, because they took time to "package properly" . . . so that they end up having MUCH MORE INFLUENCE than our superior Christian books that few people read.
Selling MORE books means they make much MORE money to finance many MORE anti-Christian, secularistic books, to have even that much greater negative influence: so for at least 50 years they have won the "war for the heart-&-soul" of the USA!
My son just Graduated Yale Graduate School with a two-year's Master's Degree in Business, and they taught that for many items, "The Package is more important than the Product!" A trip to Wal*Mart or Macy's or Tiffany's proves many people follow this philosophy. For we Christians, this can never be our philosophy - as the product is by far the most important - but it does show that we should not neglect how we represent Jesus Christ and His Word!
We ministers usually don't think there is anything we can learn from the world, however, as we choose to go by Scripture - which says: "Man looks upon the outward appearance, God looks upon the heart."
This is indeed what the 'Inerrant Word of God' declares. However, we usually interpret from this Scripture the "OPPOSITE" meaning from that which God intends!!!
All of Scripture "assumes" . . . that God's People "know" . . . that "He" knows all things; that God easily reads every mind, knows every thought, and even weighs the thoughts and intents of our hearts;
We Christians all know from our earliest days that God sees all, hears all, including out deepest and most secret thoughts . . . that God knows 'the end from the beginning' and that none of His Words have ever failed;
So what God intends for us to focus on in this Scripture is that our family, friends, neighbors, workmates, strangers, people we witness to and preach to . . . 'cannot see our heart'. ALL they can see is THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE . . .
. . . SO DO NOT NEGLECT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE . . . as it is what people use to accept or reject our testimony!!!
Furthermore, the outward appearance to a large degree, DOES mirror the inward parts!
Just because we "tell" people how much we love God and our neighbor, and they see us with a Chain Reference Bible so big the 'chains-are-dragging-the-ground' - they still CAN'T SEE OUR HEART!!!
Just because we "say" we are called of God to preach, teach, lead and guide them, - they still CAN'T SEE OUR HEART - that it may really be qualified!
Thus God is 'Warning-Us' that 'having proper motives and goals in our heart is "Not-Enough"!' God sees those worthy desires and goals, but others do not. All others "see" is the "outward appearance."
Thus we are to remember that our outward appearance is how we represent God to the world. We all understand why young women shouldn't wear extremely short skirts and see-through slinky material, "advertises" . . . a strong possibly of improper sexual behavior . . .
. . . so why can't we see that "NOT having a Doctor's Title with our name" . . . "advertises" that we haven't studied diligently, haven't taken much time to prepare, haven't invested the money, etc., etc., . . . leaving a strong possibly and even a probability, of improper Scriptural preparation.
What a tragedy, when many, many Bible Ministers are very dedicated students of God's Word!
Additionally, we are never to be hypocritical!
We are never to "misrepresent" on the outside, something we are not on the inside. This was the great denunciation by Jesus of the Pharisees: hypocrisy in Matthew 23, the harshest words Jesus ever spoke.
We know it is hypocritical to have a heart like a piece of "junk" and portray it as a loving heart of "gold" or to have a "dishonest and fraudulent" heart and portray it as "giving and caring." However, what we usually miss, is that it is just as hypocritical to have a loving heart of "gold" . . . and portray it as a piece of "junk!"
Thus it is just as hypocritical to have "great spiritual diligence" in serving God and study of His Word - as scores of thousands of ministers do - and not show it, . . . as it is to pretend that I have great spiritual diligence when in reality, I have no spiritual diligence whatsoever!
Simple example: It is hypocritical for me to tell you that I care about you when I really don't, just to gain your favor for some purpose; but it is just as hypocritical to NOT tell you that I care about you, and pray for you, when I really do!
The grasping and practice of this truth can revolutionize your ministry . . . if well-practiced.
God reminded us that people look upon the outward and judge us thereby, because of the following:
*** Quality without indicates probable quality within.
*** Diligence without indicates probable diligence within.
*** Attention to detail without indicates probable attention to detail within.
*** Slothfulness without indicates probable slothfulness within.
*** Carelessness without indicates probable carelessness within.
SIMPLE QUESTION: If your local Church-house is unkempt, needs painted, has dead shrubs in the lawn, big mud-puddles in the parking lot, dirty windows, weeds taking over the flower beds, lawn not mown for a month, the steeple leaning to one side, the sign all faded and falling apart, the porch sagging . . .
Yet on the sign a slogan says: "The Church that Really Cares!"
This may be true, but those driving by "cannot see" the "good and kind hearts of the members", . . . and they cannot help but see . . . the "uncared for" exterior: so they will probably keep right on driving - based on the "outward appearance" - and never get to know the good hearts of the good members.
HOW SAD . . .
. . . my fellow laborer, if you have been - and still are - a deeply diligent student of God's Word, for these years, . . .
. . . YET you mislead your whole community, and all who "would" come to hear you, . . .
. . . ("IF" they only knew!) . . . that indeed you are the serious student, the wise counselor, and the dedicated Teacher . . .
. . . HOWEVER, you have NO Doctor of Divinity title to "signify" your due diligence and commitment, so how are they to know you are a "Serious Student" of God's Word?
EVEN JESUS ACCEPTED THE TITLE OF MASTER-TEACHER! (This is the meaning of the Jews calling Him "Rabbi")
[NOTE: We are trusting that you are much wiser than to think it is a matter or pride, worldly status, arrogance, making you better than others, or that you no longer have to trust the leading of the Holy Spirit. That would be ignorance unto blasphemy! ]
A proper title simply indicates "who" you are, "what" you are, and that certain conditions have been met that "qualify" you to "be trusted" in your calling! Surely you can understand that.
God's Word COMMANDS us to study to "SHOW" ourselves approved unto God . . . and letting the world know we are devoted to the study of all things Divine . . . does EXACTLY THAT!
TITLES ARE IMPORTANT TO GOD
> The Called
> The Chosen
> The Anointed (Christ, Messiah)
> Council of Elders
> High Priest
> Doctor of the Law
> Ruler of the Synagogue
> Chief Priests
> Christ Himself is given scores of titles in Scripture
> One of the eternal rewards for the faithful is to be given a "New Title"! (KJV says "name" - but it's "title" in Greek).
From this partial list, I think it is easy to conclude that God ordained titles, God gave titles, God approved title and God uses titles. God further commanded to 'give honor to whom honor is due', and also said that 'those who labor in the Word and Doctrine are worthy of double honor.'
A SOBERING OBSERVATION:
If you have labored faithful and long in the Word of God and Doctrine - and do not use a Doctor of Divinity title . . . my fellow laborer, if you have been - and still are - a deeply diligent student of God's Word, for these years, . . .
Is not this dishonoring to God and His Word, to not ascribe the "highest possible title - Doctor of Divinity - to one dedicated to His wisdom?"
God is in favor of both education and titles: He ordained there to be a "School of the Prophets" back in the days of Israel's earliest kings, over 1,000 years before Christ.
The great leaders of yester-year certainly believed so.
That is why for these centuries, the Doctor of Divinity Degree long ago, was ascribed the very highest Earthly title that could be awarded by an educational institution, and that it be given to those who diligently study to "show themselves approved unto God, as workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing His Word of truth!"
For the Doctor of Divinity to be considered the "Highest Degree of all fields - of all times" - was fine, with even the very greatest scientists; from Sir Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein, and the greatest of Mathematicians from Descartes to Pascal, and the greatest of Philosophers from Immanuel Kant to Edmund Burke, . . .
. . . and the greatest Economists from Adam Smith to John Stuart Mill, and the greatest of Military Generals from Napoleon to George Washington, and the greatest Statesmen and Authors from William Shakespeare to the Greatest Artists like Rembrandt: and all the kings or all the countries!
And it was fine with everyone that "Christian Ministers" have the highest of all titles and degrees: NOW WE ARE LOSING THIS GODLY RESPECT AND IT IS OUR OWN FAULT!
Thus for nearly 1,000 years, the title of Doctor of Divinity was considered the greatest title and Degree,
> > > NOT because of the IQ of the person,
> > > neither the length of time studied to achieve it,
> > > nor to the institution awarding it -
> > > but rather because of the subject matter: "DIVINITY: GOD, HIS ETERNAL WORD, His Church, His purposes, and His Ministry!"
Are we "Modern Ministers" so worldly, that we now are ashamed of that which has been the greatest title for centuries - "Doctor of Divinity?"
Are we "Modern Ministers" ashamed to have everybody know immediately, just by signing our name "Doctor of Divinity" . . . that we have devoted our whole life to God and His Purposes?
Do we "Modern Ministers" now willingly bow the knee to secular Ph.D.'s in modern science, medicine, law, psychology and MBA's, . . . giving up the Doctor of Divinity?
Do we "Modern Ministers" cower in shame to tell-the-world that we have a Doctor of Divinity Degree from a "Seminary" - ashamed spiritually - of who we are and what our field of expertise is?
Do we "Modern Ministers" feel so inferior to the atheists, agnostics, secularists, and pagans at Harvard, Yale, Cambridge and Oxford, Berkley, M.I.T. and thousands of Godless State Universities . . . that we readily concede that "Our field of Divinity" is no longer relevant or important, and that their fields are both?
For you and I "to refuse" a title of Doctor of Divinity . . .
. . . is this not dishonoring the influence of Christ, His Word, and His Church in our communities . . .
. . . by NOT having a proper title to show that to which we have devoted our lives?
Can you see the "major importance" of this issue?
Thus the Doctor of Divinity Title is truly an Honor . . . a Privilege . . . a Right . . . and a Duty . . . to 'use well' for the Name of Christ and His Kingdom.
This highest Title-&-Degree awarded on Earth - this "Spiritual Pearl" - needs to be wisely used and with greatest honor; Lest this "Spiritual Pearl", which was designated to the Study of Divinity/God nearly a millennia ago . . .
. . . now be freely surrendered to the enemies of Christ, to the atheist's degrees and devilish institutions . . . who "trample spiritual things underfoot like swine" and mock the study of God and all things Divinity. . .
. . . all because we are too cowardly to proclaim the Gospel truth, and our "Title-of-Calling" - Doctor of Divinity to that truth?
Thus the "Doctor of Divinity" is not a minor matter.
The success of God's Kingdom languishes in the western World - dying in every nation where it has gained preeminence, for several reasons - but for certain - at least in part - because God's best and most dedicated servants,. . .
. . . are not nearly so wise as the children of the world in their generation, who do EVERYTHING to enhance their credentials with proper titles.
Sadly, many of us were not nearly so wise as the list of ministers given above, the scores of names of God's greatest ministers of the 20th century, who SAW THE NEED at an early age - and the ADVANTAGES FOR THE KINGDOM - of having and using well: "The Doctor of Divinity Degree."
Hopefully you can feel my heart and passion through my rebuke, my pleading, my instruction, and my diligent urging, to neglect this important matter no longer!
I rest my case.
The decision to bear the Title of the Ages in honour of our great God - as a Doctor of Divinity - now rests upon your shoulders. You can have it legally and properly for a pittance.
If you refuse this great honor and responsibility - the doctor of Divinity identification - the foolishness of that error may be yours to give an eternal account for on Judgment Day
In Jesus' Name I pray!
How Does the Doctor of Divinity Program Work?
 We were founded by a Non-Profit Educational Corporation, a 501(c)(3), operating successfully in the State of Ohio for 34 years - as a singular educational institution - now managed by a North Carolina Educational Corporation founded to "start Bible Colleges all over the world".
We offer Religious Diplomas & Degrees - from High-School to Doctor of Divinity, D.Div., Doctor of Ministry, D. Min., Doctor of Theology, Th.D., etc., now in the 28th year.For all the Doctoral Programs; see Doctoral Programs at Cambridge Theological Seminary
 Obviously, there are many "Degree Mills" on the web where you can get a Doctor of Divinity Degree for various prices, even $20. They have no address, no personal names, no "names or pictures of their Board members", no telephone to call, no government registered numbers from decades ago, etc. Most of them are worth nothing, and even have a very "negative value".
Suppose anyone - from newspaper reporter to ministerial association, denomination or future local church - anywhere, at any time, for any reason, . . . decides to "verify" the Doctor of Divinity Degree on the wall in your study or home.
For most of these "purchased degrees" there are no standards, no transcript, and no verification: just money.
For 99% of such "purchased Doctor of Divinity Degrees", all you get is a $1-certificate with your name on it. (If that's all you want - print your own and save a buck!)
NOTE: We urge you to give us a call and get acquainted . . . question us as much as you wish!
The Doctor of Divinity "Degree Mills" do not require "transcripts", and do not have an institution that offers to keep a "registered transcript" on record to verify your degree, and defend your credibility on your behalf, or to send out future copies of your permanent record at your request, when needed.
So, if someone attempts to verify your "Doctor's Degree" and finds out you simply purchased a piece of paper with your name on it from a "degree mill" . . . you'll be exposed as a fraud, . . . and mocked as a clown.
Obviously, this is NOT what you want, to embarrass the cause of Christ and humiliate yourself and family in front of your whole community and family!
At Cambridge Theological Seminary - with the greatest name in education - we help you build an "Official College Seminary Transcript" to support the validity of your Doctor of Divinity . . . that can be registered and maintained in our files indefinitely - as a legal document with two corporations in three states - along with all of the files of Alumni from all over the world.
 Our 'Doctor of Divinity', is "Not-for-Sale" at any amount of money, and can only be awarded for true Life Experience as a Degree of Highest Honor for the deeds you have done for Christ, - depending on the and/or previously earned credit or Degrees from recognized colleges, universities or seminaries.
 Throughout Academia, the standard requirements for these standard degrees through Doctor of Divinity are as follows:
> > > 60-64 Semester Credits minimum requirement for an Associate's Degree
> > > 120-132 Semester Credits minimum requirement for a Bachelor's Degree
> > > 150-168 Semester Credits minimum requirement for one-year Master Degree
> > > 190-220 Semester Credits minimum requirement for a Doctorate with a Thesis, (usually considered equal to another year of 30-32 credits)
> > > 222-260 Semester Credits minimum requirement for Doctor of Divinity without a Thesis, (usually requiring another year of 30-32 credits)
 The Doctor of Divinity Title is "Free" if we accept your candidacy. We will will notify you within 24-48 hours.
 We begin with the actual college credit you already have a transcript for, seminars, CLEP, etc.
 In seeking to establish a proper basis for your Doctorate, some College can be awarded for various phases of ministry as Seminars, CLEP and "Life Experience" - which is legal - and practiced by every university in the world including Harvard and Yale.
 If you still need more College Credit, you can do a thesis for up to 32 Credits toward the Master's three-year program or the Doctor of Divinity. We will give you the guidelines, MLA Writing Format, minimum length, etc. at that time.
Thus you will have a fully "Credentialed Doctor of Divinity" with the "Official College Transcripts" you submit to us and your on file, with your experience, and Seminars "transcripted into Semester-Credits" with high standards as a permanent record, that we can verify by phone, email, or US Mail at your request, to anyone you wish to verify your credentialed Doctorate. [Footnote 5]
NOTE: No information will be given to anyone seeking verification of your credentials for your Doctor of Divinity without your request/permission to release information.
 As stated previously, our Doctor of Divinity Title is FREE of CHARGE to accepted Bible Believing preachers and teachers. This Doctor of Divinity Program is widely accepted world-wide and is most likely our "Most Influential Contribution to the Kingdom of God!"
 OUR SERIOUS GOAL! We hope to "Celebrate" the granting of "One-Million-Doctorates" around the world by the year 2020! Hopefully, you will be one of this "Mighty-Army" going forth to teach God's Word with great authority!
One Last Consideration: Dr. Falwell's Example Doctor Jerry Falwell in his early days, when he was just "Pastor Falwell or "Brother Jerry" - out knocking on doors all day and sharing the Gospel - would have to knock on about 10 doors on the average to get one person to listen to a good presentation of the gospel.
After he saw the need, got a Doctor of Divinity and became "Dr. Falwell" - and could offer his Church business card with "Doctor" Jerry Falwell as Pastor on it, immediately his opportunities to share the gospel were doubled to about one full-presentation-in-five cold calls.
After he established a growing local church and television media presence, this ratio decreased to about one-in-four; and when his Church became the largest in Lynchburg, VA, it further decreased to about one-in-three.
After he established the Moral Majority and helped elect Ronald Reagan as US President, his stature was increased even more, until eventually, about one-of-every-two people he witnessed to, gave him as much time as he needed to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them.
After his great success with establishing Liberty University as the nation's largest conservative Christian university, he was able to witness to almost every person he met - one for one, convincing most of them to make a commitment of faith to Jesus Christ.
Sadly, this doesn't apply to many of you because you are NOT personal Soul Winners: you neither share the gospel one-on-one nor attempt to personally get people saved. We believe this is GROSS ERROR on your part, but if you believe that you are ONLY called to counsel, comfort, chaplain, and teach, etc., that is between you and God: you do not answer to us.
Even if not a "Personal Soul Winner" you still use personal influence EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE in every relationship you have!
Either way, what you can learn from Dr. Falwell is as profound as it is simple. In personal influence, getting a Title "Doctor of Divinity" increased his influence from persuading 1-in-10 to 1-in-5, and it only took him a couple of weeks to achieve this!
However, it took everything else he ever did for God - which was incredible - and thirty long, diligent, and dedicated years - to achieve the the same amount of impact: to further increase his influence another 4-out-of-5 making his persuasion ratio almost "one-for-one."
I was amazed to to learn these things from him through the years, in well over 100 trips to his headquarters in mountains of Virginia, and the many conferences where he taught leadership all over the nation: to realize the great impact that going from "Bro. Jerry" on the streets of Lynchburg to "Dr. Jerry" (to most and "Dr. Falwell to the rest) would have . . .
This personal experience with Dr. Falwell, Dr. Jack Hyles, Dr. Lester Roloff, Dr. John R. Rice, and hundreds more (over 800 cataloged personal interviews - learning that this whole circle of ministers had discovered the GREAT IMPORTANCE of having the "Title of Doctor of Divinity" in ministry in our modern era!) led to our present ministry.
One last comment: In over 50 years of sharing the Gospel on the streets of the rural mountain town of Lynchburg, VA, in 2007 Dr. Falwell was still presenting the same simple "Romans Road" Salvation Plan that he started with in 1956 . . . where at first, almost no one listened, to the last 20 years when almost everyone listened.
Christ had not changed. The Gospel had not changed. The Holy Spirit had not changed, only the "Status of the Messenger" had changed!"
If you choose to attain an Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree, how people perceive you will also change.
Do it TODAY ... Right this MOMENT! Precious years are already gone, with no way to know how many you have left to fulfill you DIVINE CALLING, to lay up REWARDS in Heaven, to "Build the Kingdom of God" in "America's most desperate hour!"
Seed-faith Offering for your Doctor of Divinity Program"
What is your Future in Ministry Worth?:
Please consider that a "Seed-Faith Offering" . . . of “About A Day’s Wage” to add the “Title Doctor” to your name for the rest of your life . . . is certainly one of the greatest Seed-Faith Offerings you will ever sow!
Our costs for Permanent Records & Registration of your Degree" are as follows:
> > > To keep this Ministry functioning (all in Administration are volunteers!) we need a $31 offering to cover for our Purchase, Custom-printing, Embossed-Stamping, Gold-Sealing, and Double-Signing of your "Standard-Size Degree" ($21 Offering for additional copies) It is a "Beautiful Degree . . . You will be so pleased!"
> > > a $39 offering to Evaluate your Application, "Transcript your Life Experience" into Semester Credits, and form your "Official Credit-Bank Record" in our Records.
> > > a $30 offering to make a Permanent File and maintain your College Transcription & Degree Records . . . indefinitely . . . for your future verification needs.
> > > a $59 offering to "Register your Doctor of Divinity" in three states: with our Cambridge Seminary, registered in Florida, and Non-Profit Corporations for Education in the States of Virginia and Ohio, to make SURE your "Permanent Records" stay Permanent!
> > > a $22 Offering for shipping, handling and mailing your Degree to you, First-Class, Hard-container, with Tracking and Confirmation,($Double for overseas insured mailing).
> > > This is a "Seed-Faith Offering" $151 total.
This is a considerable offering for some (and we do want ALL qualified Ministers, teachers, preachers to have this Degree, so we accept ANY payment schedule you can meet . . . for as long as you need it to be: Is not this fair?
. . . and it is a lot of long hard work for us (we do it ALL for "No-Charge" to ALL qualified Ministers in Third-World nations, all over the globe . . . NOW in 146 nations as of 4-2-2010 - Praise the Lord!)
. . . and literally hundreds of Bible-Believing Ministers have told us that they believe it is worthy of their "Weekly Tithe" - if need be - to magnify their Ministry and all that they do. [We are not telling you to do this, . . . as only God can lead you the right thing to do . . . but we do ask you to consider:
> > What else can you POSSIBLY DO . . . in a single day . . . for so little money . . . that will "Magnify ALL of your Ministry" . . . ALL the days of your life and beyond???
Does this make you "Righteously Angry?" For hundreds of years, the whole Western Civilization agreed that a "Doctorate of Divinity" was the highest ranking degree of all Degrees. Doctor of Divinity Highest Ranking of all College Degrees
As such, the Doctor of Divinity (Ministry and Theology, etc.,) along with Medical, Law and Ph.D. Degrees, all received a "Professional Size Diploma" . . . and so it was for hundreds of years.
Then in the 20th century, the atheistic Modern "Politically Correct" World decided that the Doctor of Divinity should NOT have the same status as Medical and Law Degrees. So, one by one, the secular-state universities reduced the size of the Doctor of Divinity to make it like the rest of the little "inferior degrees!"
First they REDUCED it from the very largest and most prestigious size to a smaller size . . . then it was reduced even further to just the size of a sheet of paper: 8.5" x 11" . . . like standard Phys. Ed. and Interior Decorating Degrees.
. . . and so it remains in ALL secular and sadly - even most Christian institutions!
However, if you go into a Doctor's Office, or Lawyer's Office, you will see what a true, prestigious, "Larger-Size Degree-Diploma" should like . . . what the Doctor of Divinity Degree "used to look like" . . . before the Modern Politically Correct Cult began diminishing God and His Word.
Dear Fellow-Soldier of the Cross!
You may have much money, or you may have little, but your Degree-Diploma is truly a "Moral Issue" in this 21st Century. In this modern world that worships at the altar of Education, the Medical and Law Degrees and Ph.D., we believe it is a Great Testimony to your Church Family and Community . . .
. . . to restore the Doctor of Divinity to its "proper place" as the "highest ranking" of all College Degrees as it always have been . . . for hundreds of years.
We want YOU to help in this great ATTACK of "Secular Humanism" on "God-&-His Word." We want you to have the "Larger-Sized Degree-Diploma" so much,. . . we will provide you with two smaller copies for free . . . so you can have copies one for your home, bedroom, or even to carry in a folder or in your Bible, or where ever it will witness for the Lord Jesus Christ!
> > The Larger-Sized Degree-Diploma is $49 Dollars. (11"x14")
. . . PLEASE feel free to compare our prices to others! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
SCHOLARSHIP! If you lead a Home-Church or Bible-Study, Teach in a Christian Day School, or Pastor a Church of less than 100 average attendance:
[A] Please state this and sign your name to it.
[B] Please reduce your final order price by 25%, as a Scholarship from Bro. Paul.
[C] NOTE! You Will get a "Beautiful Certificate" that "matches" your Doctoral Degree, stating to the world that you have received a "Scholarship!"

Lastly, we ask a donation of some amount to help us maintain this ministry - even if only one dollar - that is presently 100% volunteer (funded somewhat like the Gideon's Bible Society if you are familiar with their setup).

Lastly, we ask you with our whole heart - if it is at all possible - to include a "Love Offering" . . . to allow a "Brother or Sister" in India, China, Africa, or South America, to receive their Credentials from Cambridge Theological Seminary International.
Please note that we are the largest grantor of Doctoral Degrees to Hispanic-Latino and African-American Pastors and Christians Leaders.

** SIMPLE ORDINATION takes 5-10 years and costs thousands of dollars in many nations, including England & Germany, and much of Europe. For us to Ordain someone in such a Third-World nation can DOUBLE their income IMMEDIATELY . . . for every year all the rest of their life!!!
(Many nations in Africa average about $750 income a year, about $2 a day, where used cars are $60,000 and gasoline is $15 a gallon!)
Just $20 will purchase, print, package & mail their Ordination Credentials to them!
Getting a Doctorate for those who qualify in a Third-World country from Cambridge Theological Seminary can "increase their income FOUR-FOLD" and allow a minister to have an automobile to use for his congregation which GREATLY empowers the whole Church family!!!
(Think how limited, how restricted and how poverty-stricken you would be . . . if neither you - nor anyone you knew . . . or anyone living within your area . . . owned any transportation beyond a bicycle!!!)
Our average Pastor from overseas:
> > averages 300+ in weekly ministry,
> > average age is mid-30's,
> > over 90% of them have started their own churches,
> > Most feed, clothe and care for homeless children in their areas.
> > Many live on less than $2.00 a day where gasoline is $15 a gallon (and in some areas still less than $1-a-day)
Sadly, many American Applicants can send us pictures of million dollar Church facilities, yet only cover the barest expenses of enhancing their credentials with a Doctor of Divinity.

We saved the BEST NEWS for Last!
USA Ministry CREDENTIALS are "Worth-more-than-GOLD!"
This is true in so many nations - even some in Europe as we stated above!
> > > In many lands it takes 5-10 years to get "Ordained-&-Licensed to Preach & Teach and costs a small fortune. Now this is also true for Denominations in the USA, EXCEPT the GREAT difference, Americans can preach, teach and witness WITHOUT being Ordained.
Though we are losing our freedoms rapidly in the USA, very few nations have the freedoms we do.

> > > In many lands people are not allowed to "discuss or represent the Gospel to others" . . . in any fashion . . . or hand out brochures.
> > > Even in England, it takes years to get Ordained, and costs from $6,000 - $27,000 dollars - in a nation that has an average income considerably less than the USA . . . they, too, are EXTREMELY restricted on what they can do without being Ordained.
> > > Much of the world today "claims" freedom of religion - and folks are free to believe - but Governments are "Crushing Christianity" by controlling
[A] WHO can preach,
[B] requirements for Ordination,
[C] requirements for Ministerial License.
*** These things are coming to the USA as well . . . "IF" . . . WE DO NOT STAND AGAINST THEM!!!
Please - if you can - help us to get them USA Ordination Credentials & License. In many nations Ordination is government regulated, very expensive and time consuming to get. Almost all nations recognize American Credentials and this allows them to start a Church, do weddings, funerals, and hold public Evangelistic Crusades.
A beautiful Certificate of Ordination with a Ministry License a Doctor of Divinity Degree from the USA does wonders for most of them in their home towns - even allowing some to teach in local colleges!!!
Remember the Golden Rule . . . as if YOU lived in Africa, India or the Amazon Region!!!
* Cambridge Theological Seminary USA & Global has no connection or relationship to Cambridge University in England, EXCEPT . . . we in the USA are carrying on their "Christian Values of Hundreds of Years" . . . and they have long since become atheists, and secular humanists: "Anti-Christ" in almost every way.
Apostle Paul to Timothy
"And let these also first be proved (experienced); then let them USE THE OFFICE ...,
For they that have USED THE OFFICE ... well PURCHASE to themselves a good DEGREE,..." I Tim 3:10-12
Obviously, Paul is referring to the 'Offices' of Bishop and Deacon, but his statement -"purchase to themselves a good degree" - is a monumental statement.
What, exactly does Paul men? sadly, most versions are either unclear - as the KJV is here - or very wrong, based on the actual words themselves. If you really want to know, don't read 20 versions, but get out some Greek Lexicons and STUDY!
> > The word "purchase" in the Greek is the word "Peripoieomai" (per-ee-poy-eh'-om-ahee); Word Origin: Greek, a Verb, in Strong's Lexicon is #4046, is only used twice in the NT and means simply what it says: "to purchase"
> > The word "good" in the Greek is the word "Kalos" (kal-os'); Word Origin: Greek, a Verb, in Strong's Lexicon is #2570, is only used over 100 times in the NT and means "honorable, to confer honor" - which obviously is good - but not good as in "good taste, good looks, good luck, or good news," etc.
> > The third major word in this short statement is the word "degree", which in the Greek is the word "Bathmos" (bath-mos'); Word Origin: Greek, a noun, in Strong's Lexicon is #898, is only used once in the NT and means "a step, crossing a threshold, providing dignity and influence"
So here we have a word that is taking a single step, and not just any step, but one that "crosses a threshold and by that "single-step" gains "dignity and influence", the whole of which Paul said was "purchased" for "one's self" - not others - which certainly gives the boldness and confidence to do the work of the office.
So here we have the exact definition of "degree" as it is used in university to this day.
Let look at a comparison of a modern examples simple and common:
EXAMPLE-1: For they that have USED (performed) THE OFFICE (of farmer) ... well, PURCHASE to themselves a good [TRACTOR] (a farmer needs a tractor more than a Degree!), and great boldness (confidence for the work)..." I Tim 3:13
EXAMPLE-2: For they that have USED (performed) THE OFFICE (of Publisher) ... well, PURCHASE to themselves a good [Computer-printer system as a publisher need a computer-printer more than a Degree!), and great boldness (confidence for the work)..." I Tim 3:13
EXAMPLE-3: For they that have USED (performed) THE OFFICE (of Mayor) ... well, PURCHASE to themselves a good DEGREE (college education), and great boldness (confidence for the work)..." I Tim 3:13
EXAMPLE-4: For they that have USED (performed) THE OFFICE (of Prosecuting Attorney) ... well,PURCHASE to themselves a good DEGREE (college education), and great boldness (confidence for the work)..." I Tim 3:13
In other words, Paul is urging young Timothy to look at previous Bishops and Deacons and see who used (performed) the office well, and note that they purchased a good education (something that with a single step "crossed a threshold" - (before graduation day, no title, after graduation day, always a title) - which gave them boldness and confidence for the work.
In modern days, that is exactly what a college education is for, with the accompanying titles, and for you who "earn it by actual experience" the Doctor of Divinity in Ministry
[Footnote-2] [NOTE: Though we do not "Ordain" women to an office higher than Deaconess - according to the Scripture - we do recognize their eminent role in "teaching": from their children to nurseries, to Sunday School, Christian Day-schools to College and University to Conferences, etc., . . .
. . .( a la Gloria, Copeland, Joyce Myers, Marilyn Hickey, Paula White and John Wesley's mother - all teaching with full approval of their husbands, and gaining more listeners than their minister husbands) . . .
. . . thusly, we offer this Doctor of Divinity Degree to women as it is applicable to anyone in a "ministering position" - from Pastors, Christian College and Christian Day-School Teachers, Christian Counselors & Psychologists, to Christian Medical Doctors and Lawyers, Evangelists, Missionaries, etc.
[Footnote-3] Thus "earned" and "D.D." are mutually exclusive in this country for anyone who truly knows. An Honorary D.D. is "honorable", and an "earned D.D." is a joke - only accepted by the ignorant as validating the ignorant.
Any so-called "earned D.D in the USA is basically a "scam", even if offered by Princeton: nothing more than a "money-maker" for these "official schools" who charge a full-credit rate for a "Degree" that neither the US government or US educational system recognizes. All such schools are thus "unethical."
[Footnote-4] [Because of God's anointing, it goes without argument, that to the degree the messenger is truly sincere, deeply committed to Christ, fasts-&-prays over delivering the messages, and makes an earnest plea with deepest urgency, and has the anointing of God, the results will be far greater! The Spirit of God is the main factor, but the "tool" we give God to use: some are 1-talent, some 2-talent, and some 5-talent messengers, Christ insisted].
[Footnote-5] These are legally upright and honest Honorary Degrees in recognition of you and your ministry, that we stand behind for you, staking who we are and our high standards of requiring 256-Semester Credits for the Doctorate Degree - in no small part on you, and what you may write or do. Thus we only accept Bible Believing Christian Ministers!
