St Paul is of his time. We can not fathom that thought today. If anything, St Paul would willingly go through seminary. However, that is only St Paul. That God can choose anyone, seminarian or not, isn't the question. The question is why do you show latent hostility toward the educational demands placed upon clerical candidates as if it negates anything St Paul went through when such standards were not in place then.

Paul wasn't a Christian; he was a Jew who spread the belief of Jesus as the Promised Messiah to the Gentiles, often without the approval of the Apostles. Further, seminaries didn't exist then. How foolish it would be to expect someone to have to follow something that didn't exist. Paul also believed that Jesus was coming back any moment and that everyone should remain celibate, including those who were married. Do you think we should follow that as well? Or is this simply a foolish and weak argument to use as an excuse to be opposed to the Catholic Church from which your Protestant Church comes--several hundred years after both the Catholic Church and the bible it compiled were already established?
