DR. MATTHEW CAWTHORN
"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints..." - Ephesians 1:17-18
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.
ORU earned the maximum 10-year accreditation from the Association of Theological Schools (ATS), which assures an education that is academically challenging and a degree that is well respected across denominations.
Dr. Cawthorn has a huge passion to go to the unchurched of his generation with the true message of God's grace and peace as given to the Apostle Paul and the Reformers 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 taken thirteen years of classical piano along with learning several other instruments. He hosts a daily podcast show "The Long Road Out of Babylon" on spreaker.com covering a plethora of biblical topics.
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.
