2 Timothy 3:10-17

10But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (KJV)

Thomas E. Graham
About Thomas E. Graham: Thomas Graham was born in Melbourne, Australia to missionary parents. His father, a Scot, met his mother, an American, while on the mission field in Africa. Graduated from Weaton College and Princeton Theological Seminary, Graham pastored a small church in New Jersey before being called to Aisquith in 1969. A staunch Reformed theologian, Graham was recognized as a gifted preacher who occupied the pulpit each Sunday with very few notes. His love for our Lord and his awe of Scripture are evident in his sermons. During his tenure here he organized the Middle Atlantic Sovereign Grace Theological Society, attracting to Aisquith such speakers as R.C. Sproul, John Reisinger and John Gerstner. He also guided the congregation through its traumatic break with the United Presbyterian Church. He was diagnosed with cancer in February 1987 and was called Home in April of that year. His wife of nearly 26 years, the former Anna Green, remains active in Aisquith. One of their two sons now pastors the small New Jersey church once pastored by Tom, and the other is a successful Christian fantasy author. (We should note that the titles for Graham's sermons were, for the most part, not selected by him. In fact, he objected to sermon titles, generally, believing they might hinder his ability to change course, if he was so led, during the sermon. However, the presentation of hundreds of sermons, such as we have on this site, requires more description for the visitor than merely "The Sermon," which is what appeared in the weekly bulletin. We think, given our situation, he'd agree.)
