Claremont Seminary was founded in 1885 as a Methodist seminary. In the 20th century it followed most other Mainline Protestant seminaries into theological liberalism, which morphed into radicalism in the 1960s. The devastating results of compromise with modernist, relativist thinking can be seen in this seminary's recent decision. Although most Christians who hold to any semblance of orthodoxy would find this decision to be woeful, this is merely the logical and natural result once the authority, inerrancy, infallibility and veracity of Scripture are abondoned for post-modern dogma. The roots causes can most often be traced to the blind acceptance of Darwinism and various versions of the JEDP hypothesis.
