Double Dipping

I remember one time in one of my seminary classes, our professor told us that we were not allowed to double-dip. What? Double-dipping is the process by which a student uses one assignment to fulfill the requirements of two (or three) different classes. It seemed a little strict, but I understood the reasoning behind it. It was an issue of integrity and each class had its own reason for the assignment. The student should go through the process for each class. One of the things I learned about Dwight Pentecost (who recently went to be with the Lord) was that he apparently never re-used a sermon. In fact, he would start completely from scratch whether he had preached from the passage or not. I am writing this to tell you that I am probably going to double-dip for these posts.
