> Theological Seminary
There are 2 questions in this category.
I have spent time at St. Mary and St. Moses Abbey in Texas. I think I would like to pursue some sort of degree or career in Theology and study at a Seminary. I know that the seminary at the monastery is not accredited yet. Is it okay for someone who believes in the Orthodox teaching to attend a Christian college that might be Baptist? I have the idea of going to a Christian school that is not Orthodox, but while being there, holding on to the Orthodox Faith and just ignoring what might be taught but actually may be untrue. I do not think there are any Orthodox seminaries or colleges near where I live in San Antonio other than the one at the monastery, and that is why I am thinking of that.
I'm a high school student, and ever since the announcement of the seminary in Texas was released, it is all I think about. I know that one must have a bachelor's degree to enter the seminary, so will it still be available by the time I get my bachelor's degree. It is my dream to be under the feet of the teachers and become learned in the theology and traditions of the Church, as well as to spend a great amount of time under the feet of the monks at the monastery, which has a great place in my heart. Also, when is it recommended to enter the seminary? Since it is full time, is it best to enter as soon as my university studies are completed?
