ABOUT

So let me tell you a little about myself, a bit of what I have been through, and why I have established this site.
My name is Trevor Ray Slone. I am the author of two books: Doing Apologetics Without the Need for Apology: Biblical Principles for Conrontational Relationality, and Science vs. Religion: Is It Really That Simple? I am also the former and (hopefully) future radio show host of Think it Through, an apologetics oriented program. You can find past episodes here  http://themessedupapologist.com/think-it-through . I have been a baker, a security guard, a semi-truck driver, a food service worker, a Walmart overnight stocker and a cart person, an electrician, a personal trainer, a baby sitter, a hotel banquet setup person, a door to door salesman, a college campus minister/apologist, a car salesman, and many other things over the years.
I have a one year diploma in Electrical Technology, a one year diploma in Personal Training, a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Religion, a Masters of Ministry degree with an emphasis in apologetics and biblical exegesis, a semester of Law School, a semester of a doctorate in Bioethics at a medical college in New York, a semester of a PhD in Organizations Leadership, and I am currently working on my dissertation for my PhD in Theology and Apologetics at North-West University in South Africa (NWU-PUKKE, distance program).
I have three active certifications in the area of personal training, one expired certification in personal training, and a journeyman electrical license, and also a Class A CDL drivers license and up to date DOT medical card.
I have an IQ of about 160 and I was offered the chance to spend the summer at Duke University, take my SAT's and possibly start college when I was 11 years old (known as the Duke TIP program), although my parents said no to that opportunity for various reasons.
I have two brothers, one a Green Beret Medic (also Sniper qualified) and the other a government LCSW. My father is a retired Army CSM, and my mother is, well, one of the strongest people that I know as far as overcoming obstacles in life.
I am also an eighth Cherokee, and I am related to Davy Crocket from the Battle of the Alamo (on my father's side).
    
 
But I have also been through two horrible divorces, lost all possible contact with my son several years ago, had my mom and dad essentially abandon me completely, had my little brother refuse to talk to me for 8 years now, been evicted from residence 8 times, moved nearly 50 times, had 100+ jobs as an adult, been severely physically abused as a young child by my mother (she even tried to drown me in the bathtub once), been diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder and ADHD over 20 years ago, been diagnosed with PTSD and an adjustment disorder recently, been hospitalized for suicidal ideations 9 times, been misused and used by many women, lost more friends than I can count from moving around so much, been picked on most of my life for being either too skinny, too fat, too hyper, too weird........and on and on the story goes. 
 
NEEDLESS TO SAY, I AM MESSED UP.
 
However, I remain stable and steady and firm in my Christian faith, not because of blind faith of mere sincerity, but because the evidence points in that direction more than in any other direction.
 
So stay connected with this website if you have ever wondered why you should believe in a God that allows such horrible things to happen to you; if you have ever wondered how evil could exist in a world created and sustained by a good God; if you have ever questioned the possibility of the resurrection of Jesus, or even his very existence or Deity; if you have ever questions or wondered about anything that the Bible teaches......These are the types of things that will be discussed and spoken and written about on this site. Be prepared, I warn and encourage you, to challenge yourself and your beliefs, and be open and willing to go, mentally and spiritually, WHEREVER the evidence and logic leads you!

(Note that I discovered in October, 2016, that i was actually misdiagnosed with ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, and other things as a kid, and that it was the meds they had me on all those years that I didn't need that caused me to exhibit the types of behaviors I did. Praise God that I have been completely med-free since then - six months as the time of this writing - and life is getting drastically better fast!)
The Lord Delivers Indeed!
