Degree Mills

A degree mill is a school which grants higher degrees on below par educational standards.  As a policy, degree mills are harmful because they allow a person to claim academic credentials while they have not really taken the time to study.  This is a type of dishonesty on the part of the school, for receiving money from a student to provide a degree, and a fraud on the part of the student who receives the degree.  It is disturbing to me the number of Christian degree mills that exist.  Often a degree mill can be spotted by the fact that their “doctors” have their diplomas from their own institution or from another degree mill.  Once I found a Christian degree mill whose president had a PhD from another degree mill whose president had a degree from the first degree mill.

My review of Grant Jeffrey’s book, The Signature of God, placed considerable doubt on his scholarship.  Now I learn from his website that he has a PhD from Louisana Baptist University.  Google search for “Louisana Bapitist University” and “degree mill”  yields this result.  I leave it for you to judge.  Any comments?
