OpinionUP holds regular debates on current events and trending topics of interest every Tuesday at 8PM EST. Debate winners are selected by their fellow debate participants. Get to know the winner of the debate “The #MeToo Movement”: @gavinnn
1. What’s your favorite topic to debate?
I think I enjoy debating about Christianity most. It’s something that is incredibly important to me, and I believe it has the biggest impact on others. I especially enjoy debating about certain “conflicts” in the Bible, ad whether or not they really constitute “contradictions.”
2. What is your biggest life goal?
My biggest life goal is to honor God to the best of my ability. Christ laid down his life for me, so, I will lay down my life for Him.
3. What’s your favorite book?
My favorite book is the Bible, but that’s a generic answer. So, my second favorite book is called “A Peculiar Glory” by John Piper. It’s an amazing book about how the canon of Scripture came to be, and why and how we come to believe that it is truly the Word of God.
4. If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I’ve always wanted to travel around Europe. That’s where most of my heritage is, and I feel like there is a lot of really cool things to see. Ireland and Italy especially would be very fun to visit.
5. What is your ideal profession?
I plan to do CAD (Computer Assisted Design) for some time while I study to be a pastor. Someday, I hope to be a pastor who is fully committed to spreading the Gospel and teaching others about the truths in the Bible.
6. What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I like to read, drum, or play video games. I drum and play video games simply because it is fun and entertaining. Also, I play percussion on my youth group worship team. I read everyday because I think it’s important to grow my knowledge about the things I want to pursue. I read the Bible everyday and I try to read one book about theology every month. I also read Marvel comics from time to time.
7. What series do you enjoy binge watching on Netflix?
This one isn’t on Netflix, but I’ve been watching a lot of Adventure Time lately. It’s a pretty funny show and the writing is surprisingly well thought out.
8. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It would have to be chicken. Not because chicken is my favorite, but because it has a lot of nutrients and it can be cooked and prepared many different ways.
9. Would you rather have a billion dollars or be president?
I think I would take the billion dollars. Personally, with my goals, I feel that there is a lot more good I could do with a billion dollars. Also, I think the stress and workload of being president would be too much to handle honestly.
10. Is there anything else you would like the OpinionUP community to know?
I just want to thank OpinionUp for giving us a platform to share our opinions openly and respectfully. Many other platforms have a history of censoring those with opposing viewpoints, but OpinionUp has stayed true to their goal of giving people an app to discuss all sorts of views, beliefs, and opinions without censorship.
