Autobiographical Sketch
"I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor."
1 Timothy 1:12-13

"Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations--these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat."
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
"...Our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself."
Philippians 3:20-21
"Indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life."
2 Corinthians 5:4
"...formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor."
1 Timothy 1:13
"Now Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, and asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem."
Acts 9:1-2
"So then, I thought to myself that I had to do many things hostile to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. And this is just what I did in Jerusalem; not only did I lock up many of the saints in prisons, having received authority from the chief priests, but also when they were being put to death I cast my vote against them. And as I punished them often in all the synagogues, I tried to force them to blaspheme; and being furiously enraged at them, I kept pursuing them even to foreign cities."
Acts 26:9-11
"It would [have been] like Molly Yard becoming pro-life and doing rescues. Or Madalyn Murray O'hair believing in Jesus and pushing public prayer. Or Saddam Hussein getting converted and becoming a Christian missionary to Muslims in Saudi Arabia."
John Piper
"Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief..."
1 Timothy 1:13
"Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing."
Luke 23:34
"The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more...."
Romans 5:20
"...and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 1:14
"It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus into the world to save sinners…."
1 Timothy 1:15
"And the Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples, saying, 'Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?'"
Luke 5:30
"...Thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, 'I dwell on a high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.'"
Isaiah 57:15
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 5:3
"It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
Mark 2:17
"It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus into the world to save sinners….among whom I am foremost of all.”
1 Timothy 1:15
"Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life."
1 Timothy 1:16
“Now there are other interesting themes here as well, …but the point I want to make is this: from the moment when the Lone Ranger shows that he can tame the untamable horse and make it into his servant, and even in a measure his friend, the viewer knows that he will be able to conquer all other obstacles in his path as well. He has already taken the hardest case, and the easy ones will now be—well, easy.”
N.T. Wright
"[Paul] admonishes us all by his example, that we should never think of the grace shown in God’s calling without being lost in wondering admiration."
John Calvin
"Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen."
1 Timothy 1:17
