9. Since it is so daunting a task to choose who is best, we continue to leave that to the popular web search engine Google, because to the victor goes the bandwidth. Google has decreed that number nine is again a tie, which is just as well because after all is said and done, the student must decide for his or herself who is the best because the fashions of this world fade away. ChristianColleges.com claims to have the low down on which is the most reputable bible college. Haven’t they heard? Woe unto you when all men speak well of you.

So many great places to study the word of the Lord. How is one to decide? No list, however well researched can or should decide such an important life decision. If one is solely interested in the credentials and not really in the spirit of the word then probably any of the big name colleges, who, in this day and age must offer online courses, will suffice; the bigger the better, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Oxford, ect…
If on the other hand, O valued reader Thine faith be true, then and to all…seek and ye shall find.
