Return of the Zombie College

Forget Six-pack's "Armstrong College"

Forget Spanky's "Living University"

As for "Ambassador Bible Center": why bother?

"Ambassador College of Christian Ministry"? Not even a starter!

Not when there's AMBASSADOR COLLEGE itself.

Located in the furthest reaches of Tennessee, Ambassador College liveth yet, apostles provided!

And, from what is available on its website, I'm guessing that it will provide similar, unique standards of academic instruction as its deceased namesake in Pasadena. But do you reckon Joe's legal beagles might object... or has the glorious Pastor General been reduced to selling the name now that the silverware has long gone?

And how come Gerry, Rod, the UCG Sanhedrin et al didn't think of it first?

The word "Doh!" rings out in the halls of Armstrongism!

Does anyone know who the college’s ‘owner’ Dr. J. Todd Zeiger is affiliated with? From what it seems, this ‘college’ is only active one day a week.

Why would anyone want to sabotage their institute of higher education by using such a tainted name? How embarrassing.

Perhaps a quick Google on the name J. Tod Zeiger would be instructive.

From the website of: http://www.munfordriveroflife.com/

"Friday, September 21 & Saturday, September 22 at 7 PM and Sunday at 10 AM we will be hosting renewl services with Dr. J. Tod Zeiger. Dr. Zeiger and his wife Jane are the founders and pastors of Embassy Christian Center in Maryville, TN. Dr. Zeiger travels
internationally while preaching, teching, and raising up leaders. He is one of the finest biblical expositors you will hear."

All spelling errors left intact. You'd think they'd learn how to spell if they're going to put up website. They're going to be 'teching' college students. Right....

Anyone watch Dr. Phil last night?

See, there was this con man who admitted that he plagiarized the material in another book and used it to write "his own". He took money and played games with people.

Then he looked Dr. Phil right in the eye and claimed innocence.

How very like every con game out there, such as this one with Ambassador College.

Seeking to be accredited are they? With one class a week? Training new apostles are they?

Yet there are empty headed twits who slop up this swill. But then, this is yet another predator cleaning out the shallow end of the gene pool.

Rejoice brethren that humanity will be made all the better through natural selection.

Maybe the good Dr. Z doesn't get around much in the US of A, or he'd have realized that this is the worst name selection since the sisters Ima and Ura Hogg.

Don't be surprised if filming for The Power Rangers begins there next week.

I haven't done a thorough check but I believe this "Ambassador College" is probably a rename of "Destiny Christian College".

I don't think there's a copyright on the name of a college. The U.S. has plenty of them with St. Francis, St. Mary's or Loyola in their names.

So far, Armstrong Atlantic State University in Georgia has NOT sued PCG over Armstrong College.

There's also an Ambassador Baptist College in North Carolina...

Alright first of all I would like to say that Dr. Todd Zeiger is one of the most Godly men I know. He is on top of what God wants for the now and a very powerful and innovated seekers. I hope you all realize how immature you guys are acting like on putting down on Ambassador College and Dr. Zeiger. You all are a bunch idiots sitting on your o all high and mighty computers typing in bull crap about a very respected man. Way to go guys. Way to look like a bunch of losers and putting down fellow christians. Way to follow Jesus' example. Way to go. Hurray for you, I hope your having fun putting down one my of spiritual fathers. I can't stand people like you. Disgusting

It is plainly obvious that you all have no idea what you are talking about. Dr. Zeiger....Hmmm.... It is apparent you all have never realized that there is a Dr. at the front end of his name. You all have what kind of degree to judge people. I do believe that the Bible says...."do not judge"....I also believe that this is what you are doing since none of you have first hand knowledge of the college or what it is teaching. I suggest that you all keep your mouths shut or else you will be judged as well. If you had first hand knowledge of the school and what it was teaching and then had a comment the, you would be entitled to an opinion. But to blast people for trying to teach and equip Christian leaders for the next generation without knowledge of what you are talking about is completely ridiculous. I hope you all are proud Christians....talking about something that you have no idea about. That is hypocrisy on your part.... I hope you realize that.
