The internet is a picture of life on planet earth: bearing the marks of both depravity and the image of God.
You can find the worst hard-core smut with a couple of clicks of the mouse. For that reason, I strongly encourage the use of covenant eyes. It is not a filter. It is an accountability system to help us use the internet and, at the same time, maintain the joy and freedom of purity.
You can also find the best in preparation for ministry at just about any level. Imagine being able to study under some of the best Bible teachers in the english-speaking world – without leaving home or job! Imagine having access to seminary-level training – free!!

Sure, it takes discipline. What doesn’t?
If you are a teacher – use this!!! God’s word deserves your best study – and so do your students.
If you are a new Christian – use this!! It is not beyond you – and you will grow!
If you have been a believer for many years, and are in a rut – use this! It will stretch you, inspire you and move you to another level.
WE HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR NOT GROWING – NO MATTER OUR AGE, LEVEL OF EDUCATION OR FINANCIAL CONDITION.
Just found several others – videos of seminary-level classes on the Bible, theology, and ethics.
Also, on ITunes, check out classes available from Covenant Seminary, Dallas Seminary, Fuller Seminary – and chapel services from these – as well as Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southern Baptist Seminary, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Gordon-Conwell. It just goes on and on.
