I post papers I have written, some during my graduate and post-graduate studies, some in response to other papers, and some written for other purposes like Sunday school classes or Bible studies. I also post observations on whatever comes to my mind and videos from teaching sessions.

Hebrews 13:4 (NKJV) — 4 Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
