"I will again pour out teaching like prophecy, and leave it to all future generations.

Observe that I have not labored for myself alone, but for all who seek wisdom."

                                                                                                       -SIRACH 24:33-34


Dr. Matthew Cawthorn completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Georgia earning his Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. He later completed a Master of Divinity Degree at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He also earned his Doctorate in the School of Theology and Ministry at Oral Roberts University specializing in Church Ministry and leadership. He is currently a College Professor in the Social Sciences Department. 


​Dr. Cawthorn has a huge passion to go to the unchurched of his generation with the message of God's grace and peace as given to the Apostle Paul of old. His ministry is truly in the "highways and hedges" as he offers God's unmerited favor, and cessation of againstness, to those trapped in the bondages of man-made religion, legalism, and performance-based Christianity.

He is also an accomplished musician having studied for thirteen years in classical piano along with learning several other instruments. He hosts a daily podcast show "The Long Road Out of Babylon" covering a plethora of biblical topics. 


The Adversary


He publicized my failures, and laughed at all my faults;

He criticized my least mistake, and pointed out my flaws.

He thought my blunders comic; my errors were great fun.

He robbed me of the strength to do the good I might have done.

He blocked the path before me, and hemmed me in behind;

He hindered all my progress, escape I could not find.

He beat me and he crushed me, down to the very sod;

He did me one great favor for he left me only God.

He saw I had escaped him, and scorned me in his wrath;

Oh yes, I learned some lessons from the one who blocked my path.

In climbing, I escaped him—this wisdom will abide-

I never would have scaled the heights, if he had stood aside.
