Baptized Muslim

Recommended Posts

In the past recent years the Lord has been appearing in my dreams and guiding me. I got baptized against the will of my family. I think the Lord has a deeper purpose for my future. I would like to do a M Div and go back to India and serve the Lord.

I have a Bachelors degree in Electronics Engineering and Masters in Business Administration (I am not crazy). With the Lords help and my educational background, I think I can contribute to the Christian brother hood in India. I was interested in Interfaith studies and reconciliation between Christians, Hindus and Muslim. Interfaith misunderstanding is a key issue in India, which often leads to riots/arson and some times murder.

1) Am I on the right track?

2) Any advise for what kind of college is suitable for a guy like me.

3) Anything else

Please feel free to comment. (I am currently working with the Pastor who baptized me, also wanted to know what the forum thinks)

I the name of Christ

Hi Samuel,

I'm not sure that this board is the best place to be asking such questions. It's a pretty secular place (not to say that you aren't entitled to your religious beliefs; just be aware that many/most here will not share them and some may take offense depending on how you phrase things).

You MIGHT have some luck if you post in the "Religion" subforum under Humanities, as the people frequenting that area have experience with M.Div./MTS and the various other theological degrees; they might be able to direct you to specific seminaries.

You might also consider Peace and Reconciliation studies which is a growing field. A number of Mennonite universities (in particular) specialize in such programs, and I'm sure there are others out there. I'm not sure how well secular schools would respond to somebody with your highly Evangelical purpose, although your focus on interfaith understanding is obviously an incredibly important angle. I would encourage you to look for a forum dedicated to Christian higher education, as it would likely be more helpful than this one, although I don't know of any off the top of my head.

Thanks a lot Ludwig

Your feedback appears absolutely valid. I will look at the Peace and Reconciliation programmes. Thank you again for your feedback.
