Dangerous Calling: Seminary is Not a Local Church

"Western culture loves the self-made man. That's why Frank Sinatra's hit ""My Way"" is a hit. But if you look at the self-made man from a Biblical perspective, you always see a poorly-made man. We weren't designed to live as independent individuals. In this video, Paul David Tripp explains the flaws of ""Jesus and Me"" Christianity, as well revealing the dangers of seminarians living in isolation and independence.

Scott Anderson of Desiring God interviews Paul Tripp about his latest book: ’A Dangerous Calling’. After traveling the globe and speaking to thousands of churches worldwide, Paul reveals some serious dangers of pastoral ministry. In these interviews Scott and Paul discuss the spiritual life of the pastor and the community of people that trains, calls, relates to and restores him."

Length: 5mins
