  • One of my favorite illustrations: When Luther was approached and asked if the followers of the reformation could call themselves after him, He said; (paraphrased) "How shall I, an evil, foul smelling, bag of maggots, give my worthless name to the children of God." "Call yourselves Christians."

  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: nothing different
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: It was during my first attempt at public speaking. I was in the 10th grade. I was terribly nervous but I managed to begin my 15 minute talk to the class. Within about 5 minutes however I thought to myself, "Paul, your knees are shaking" so I glanced down and reassured myself that they were not. Just about one minute later, I heard one girl in the front row whisper to a girl next to her; "Look at his knees". That did it for me. I turned beet red, ended my talk early, and sat down. I swore I would never speak in public again. God however had different plans for me. Fortunately our church has a large pulpit that does a wonderful job of covering trembling knees.
  • What I want on my tombstone: "Death is swallowed up in victory"
