About Me
Hi, my name is Yusha. (You-Shah)

I am on .here seeking to make a connection with someone, I would consider myself a strongly devoted Christian, the hope would be to formalize a friendship with potential for more, a Christ centered gospel focused relationship. My faith in my beloved Lord, Great God and Savior Jesus is the most important thing and it's what gives my life to the true meaning. I would consider myself a Confessional Presbyterian, and attend a Presbyterian Church (OPC) that is my denomination, not to be confused with the mainline liberal PCUSA, or the sister conservative. PCA


I do hold to The Reformed (Presbyterian) Magisterial Tradition of historical Protestantism: such as Covenant Theology, and its subsequent sacraments, & doctrines, things like the Confessions & Covenantal (infant) Baptism, Penal Substitutionary Atonement. Divine Simplicity, Theonomy, The Doctrines of Grace : Predestination, Election, Particular Redemption etc. The Five Solae of the Reformation & lastly Cessationism.

Nonetheless I do hold to some other non-reformed positions that I believe are missing from my tradition,
such a prostating prayer, communion of the saints in a very limited regard, 2 of Marian dogmas : The theotokos and the PVM. I also believe in the Veiling of virgins and women.

I am definitely not opposed to making a connection with someone of a different denomination ; I believe as long as one holds to the necessary/required beliefs for orthodoxy such as (the deity of Christ, the atonement as fundamental soteriology) then a potential relationship is certainly possible plus I am fine with that. 🙂

Daily bible reading is something I commit myself to and If I am unable to read then I will plug in the audio bible and listen away. I am not against the Deuterocanonnical books and have chosen to employ them for scriptural reading, I have read my bible various times which has been challenging for sure in multiple languages, several concordances, commentaries and study versions. I am not a strict KJV only-ist but am not offended by anyone who is. I enjoy reading the Bible in the NASB, and the ESV.

I attend an Orthodox Presbyterian Church weekly and am involved in is ministry.

I do enjoy living an active life, such as jogging, weight training/cross fitness, & martial arts. As a matter of fact my current job (which is all outdoors) requires that I be physically able to do lots of strenuous physical lifting.

I know that on social dating sites we are encouraged to describe ourselves and at times we can exaggerate ourselves and abilities, that said I will be sincere and state that I myself am a sinner, and I deserve God s wrath, I am a man with a sinful nature BUT thanks be to God through faith in Christ Jesus that I no longer have to live in condemnation, I am a continual work of sanctification for as long as I may live, not perfect but the Lord is purifying me so that my life may honor him.

My personal faith is the affirmation of the Nicene Creed, Apostles Creed, and other subsequent future councils that followed which laid out a concise proclamation of faith and confession of authentic Christianity ie. The WCF (Westminster Confession of Faith), WL/SC (Westminster Larger/shorter Catechisms), as well but to a lesser extent the three forms of unity amongst reformed protestantism : Belgic Confession, The Cannons of Dort, & the Heidelberg Catechism.

While I do hold to the Westminster standards, I believe they are subordinate to the inspired, sufficient, holy scriptures.

That said I do believe it is important for a Christian to know why and what it is that they believe in, therefore I hold to the Nicene Creed, Apostles/Athanasian creed, etc..


Thus I believe as follows :

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit
was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake
he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated
at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord,
the giver of life, who proceeds
from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
And one, holy, catholic
and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism
for the remission of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection
of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

If you reject such a creed it is difficult to consider yourself a Christian.

I believe the western church today lacks an adequate understanding on ecclesiology and soteriology, but such theological matters are important for me and only serve to strengthen my faith in my Lord.

I am a graduate from Reformed Theological Seminary, specializing in New Testament Theology/& studies as well as biblical Koine Greek.

The great C.H. Spurgeon once said every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter. My own mission is portrayed in the form of apologetics and biblical exposition, I enjoy spreading the gospel by engaging in profound theological discussions with Muslims, Atheists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, peoples of other faiths; in order to get to the heart of the matter, man's sinful nature and his need for salvation. So I ask myself, if one has no drive to share Jesus with anyone can they even in good conscious call themselves a "Christian"? Faith is active and alive, any faith without works is dead.

.

Obviously as my profile states, my current status after years of coping it leads me to finally begin wanting to meet people & I would really love to meet someone who shares my ideals, points of view and or if they just find anything I've said interesting to not hesitate to contact me. May the peace of God the father and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
