My name is Dillon. I’m a 21 year old follower of Christ who definitely doesn’t have everything figured out.  But I’m always striving to learn and to help others learn.  Currently I’m an undergraduate student double majoring in History and Arts Management.  In the past year, I’ve discovered a burning passion for apologetics.  I used to think that faith and logic were incompatible, until God totally flipped that.  Aside from my faith, performing arts are a large part of my life; be it acting, playing, directing, I love all of it.

I also have the greatest friends around. They support me and challenge me to grow in nearly every way.  I can truly call them my brothers.  We also look pretty good sporting wolf shirts.

My two favorite verses are, “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7) and “You believe that there is one God.  You do well.  Even the demons believe–and tremble!” (James 2:19).  To me, one of the most difficult things we can do is simply walk in our faith, to actually live what we believe.  So often we get concerned with planning ahead that we lose sight of what’s important.  God’s been repeatedly teaching me how to walk by faith, and I’m extremely grateful.  The verse from James really speaks to me because of its relevance.  So many people stop with having a faith in God, falling short of the big picture.  But, as Paul says, even the demons believe in God.  It’s a reminder that Christ is central to everything.

Yes, I have a tattoo.  The Greek word “Eirene” is used by Paul in Romans 5:1 to mean “we are no longer at war with God.” No, it is not a sin to have a tattoo, just as it is not a sin to pierce your ears. What is important to remember is the motivation behind any physical change. This tattoo is merely an outward expression of my heart’s condition, no different than if someone were to wear a wedding ring.  But yes, it hurt quite a bit.
