Tripp named Alumnus of the Year
By Bob Holmes
Dr. Paul Tripp says when he was a student at Columbia International University (then Columbia Bible College - CBC), he was a rabble-rouser who often found himself in the office of the Dean of Men, Otis Braswell.
“One time he even suggested I was in his office so much they needed to put my bed down there,” Tripp says with a laugh. “We had really good fellowship.”
While Oct. 31 has become associated with the ghosts and goblins of Halloween, it is an important day in the history of the church.
It was on Oct. 31, 1517 that a priest named Martin Luther nailed to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany, a list of questions and propositions for theological debate known as the 95 theses. This act, which would challenge the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, would lead to the greatest transformation of Western society since the apostles. His action provoked a debate that culminated in what we call the Protestant Reformation.
