I have noticed over the years that the only Christians who tend to oppose theological training, the importance of learning Greek/Hebrew, or studying philosophy/apologetics are those who have not had formal theological training, have not studied Greek/Hebrew, and have not studied philosophy/apologetics.  I have never met someone who has theological training, learned Greek/Hebrew, or studied philosophy/apologetics who will tell you that such training is not helpful and important for the advancement of Christianity.  I find this quite interesting.  How can one evaluate the worth of endeavors for which they have not participated in?  Could the devaluing of these fields be little more than justification for one’s own ignorance?  Hmm.
