  1. Dr. Philip,
    I humbly write you. I have asked for an extension in the past to complete my masters program. I’m sorry to say I have not started it. I offer no reason, for no matter what I say it would be nothing but an excuse. It would be easy for me just to let everything go. However, I have prayed about this, asking God sincerely if this is his wish. His answer is solid. I must go forward. I understand this will cost me to start again, but it is what I must do.

    Yours in Christ,

  2. Dear Dr. Philips,

    I would like to enroll in a master program apologetics. Im a traditional Catholic and have studied the H. scriptures for many yrs. But have no degrees in it. My favorite subjects are apologetics and creationism.
    I m 39 yrs old but enfortunately not rich. I lost my job due to the financial crisis. And therefore I do hope the courses will not cost soo much.
    Here find a few questions:
    1. How long does it take to finish a study program Mastersdegee?
    2. Are there online exams to perform?
    3. Will the exams be corrected and send back to me with the correcct answers?
    4. After completion, will a masters degree be sent to me by post or by email?
    5. What will be the cost?
    6. Should I first need to get a BA before enrooling into a master program this will be of no problem for me.

    grace and peace from God to you
    I am interested in your master of theology distance learning. I am pastor of malagasy lutheran church ; I live in French. Now i search a school of theology to pursue my study. I have studied theology at Institut protestant de theologie à Paris from 2005. My problem is this: there is a teacher in this institute who prevents me from getting the bachelor degree. Now I have 170 credits, it rests 10 credits for me for the bachelor degree (180 credits). I passed at least 4 tests with this teacher but she always gave me bad note. I tried to speak with the Dean of this institute but he cannot do anything. so 5 years after my enrollement in this institute, I don’t have yet my bachelor.
    solution, i decided to search another school which can recognise and validate my credits for the bachelor degree so that I may pursue the study of master.
    so i ask for your requirement of credits transfer, what should i do to be able to begin the master cours in your school? I can send to you all information about me and any document you wish to know
    I look forward reading from you, s
    thank you in advance
    in Christ

  11. Hi Dr. J.C Philips, I come from a poor family in a town called Knysna in South Africa. I have studied towards a BSc.Medical Bioscience Degree at the University of the Western Cape, but unfortunatly I had dropp out of University due to financail problems. I still have faith in God, because I know He won’t let me down. I grew up in a God Fearing Family and eccepted Lord Jesus as my saviour and Lord at an early age. I received the Holy Spirit when I was only 13 years of age. And after that my Life was never the same again.
    I still have this burning passion to spread the word of God to others, and i have a hunger to study the word of God.
    I want to study the depths, and I feel this is Gods calling working in my heart. i SAW an e-mail saying that students from developing countries can study for free.
    I pray you to please inform me how to make use of this opportunity to study for free.

    May God Bless you Hundred Fold!

  12. I have apply to do a m Div degree, but haven’t yet received feedback.

  13. I was pondering what is up with that interesting gravatar??? I know 5am is early and I’m not looking my best at that hour, but I hope I don’t look like this! I might however make that face if I’m asked to do 100 pushups. lol

  14. When I stumble upon a great post I do some things:1.Share it with my close contacts.2.Bookmark it in some of the popular social sharing sites.3.Make sure to come back to the same website where I first read the post.After reading this article I’m really concidering going ahead and doing all 3.

  15. Trinity Graduate School of Theology » Blog Archive » Dr. Johnson C. Philip is an interesting name for a blog, keep up the good work, thanks, from Wylie Watkins

  16. Ah, I find the very fact has unlimited debatable points. I don’t need to argue with you right here, however I have my own opinions as well. Anyway, you did a fantastic job in writing the publish, and wish to praise you for the hard work. Sustain with the nice job!

  17. Dear Dr. Johnson C. Philip,

    Christian greetings. I was made redundant from my job 3 months ago as my company went bust. I am jobless at the moment as it is so difficult to get a job in the UK when you are in your late 40s. I volunteer in a charity shop at the moment.
    I was wondering if I could study for free with your college and seminary and the registration fees be waived in my present circumstances.
    Please consider my request.
    Await your reply.
    Many, many thanks and God bless.

    Kindest regards,


  18. I am presently studying at Louisiana Baptist University via online for MTHEO degree with Greek minor. Hopefully, next year by March I will graduate on this course.
    In connection to this opportunity I found in Trinity Gradaute School, I am planning to pursue a Doctorate degree in Apologetics after the completion of my MTHEO. Considering the fact as what I’ve learned from this school, Masters degree is pre requisite for Doctoral program.It seems defending the Christian faith is God’s leading thrust in my ministry of preaching. What prompted me to write you is for some further information or affirmation of this EXTRA ORDINARY privilege this school offers. One thing I am happy to learn, is that this school offers free-tuition program. This is unimaginable yet amazing, since God will do everything in order to engage toiling my mind about the things of God and to make myself approve. Above all, my present status cannot afford to pay in earning this degree.

    Could there be any other info I will learn from you beside what I gathered from the internet? Would it be necessary for you to affirm the authenticity of this school? I would be very happy Doctor Philip with any of your response.

    Thanks for your time,

    Respectfully yours and In Christ

  19. Dear Dr. Philip,
    greetings to all of you at TSOAT.
    Just to let you know that many that I have mentioned your TSOAT site as other Schools, Institutes and Universities in this ministry field of studies, have been very happy with the courses that you offer.
    May the faculty of this beautiful school that you and the faculty administer may reach as many souls as possible.
    Looking forward studying Archaeology with you as I continue with the studies with other bible Schools as well.
    Thank you and you will receive a separate e-mail from me for the application process.
    God bless you all.

  23. Dear Dr Johnson C Philip, I sent this following letter to Dr. Zakir Naik, Dr. Praveen Togadia, Mr. M M Akbar, Mr. James Randi,Edamaruk’ son and to our P M Narendra Modiji etc but because our God destroyed their wisdom before Jesus Christ They didn’t replied. I am writing to them since 2008 to these our gentile brothers.

    You please read it and do according to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.


    Dear Pravin Togadia Ji
    Dear Zakir Naik Ji
    M.M.Akbar ji

    I love you both sincerely because the God Almighty Created us all in His own
    image and likeness to live in love, in peace and cordially.

    Dr Zakir Naik Ji you are a learned religious scholar and also a medical doctor
    but do not believe The Holy Bible is the Word of God. Ok no problem.

    Mr.Togadia Ji you are a politician, by hook or crook you want to see
    your political party (BJP) in power so sincerely working for it. Good, go on.

    Mr. Akbar bhai you are also like Dr. Zakir Naik. I sincerely love you.

    But we the BORN AGAIN Christians of not only our beloved India but around this
    beautiful universe believe WHAT THE HOLY BIBLE SAYS AS IT IS, that is



    As a disciple of Jesus Christ I love you all and wish to see you all in the blessed
    heaven. So I REQUEST to you all, please gather at least 10,000 decent people
    in an open ground any where in India then we will preach to them turn by turn what
    our religious scriptures teaches us ” how we can attain MUKHTI when we die.

    Dear friends we all believe that there is only ONE GOD, so please allow this God to
    make us believe “whose teachings is from HIM by RISING A DEAD TO LIFE.”

    We all will accept that particular GOD AS THE TRUE LIVING GOD who is able to
    confirm any of our TEACHINGS BY RAISING A DEAD TO LIFE. So that we all
    can follow HIS teachings,live in peace and can work for the blessings and
    betterment of our country and its Citizens.

    The ignorats are killing God’s own images in the name of cows, religion, caste and
    creed and politics and compelling the JUST GOD to destroy this beautiful universe.

    By doing these cruelty, injustice and wickedness they forgets they are unknowingly
    walking also towards the most dreaded place i.e. the devastating fire of HELL.

    The true PATRIOTISM is to live a life that find favour and good understanding in
    the sight of GOD and man, it is called the REAL PATRIOTISM.

    God bless you all.

    A Servant of The Savior and the Lord Almighty JESUS CHRIST,

    Dear shri shri ji

    I love you because of 2 reasons. 1st is I love every human being lives under the sun
    irrespective of their caste and creed and the 2nd reason is your vision is good.

    I am writing this letter to you because in your lack of knowledge of your Creator the
    real Living God or intentionally you are missguiding many poor precious souls, to
    please a section of our society.

    Shriman ji our maximum life in this wicked world can be a 100 years maximum. After
    that we have to leave this world.

    The fact is with our good works we can not attain SALVATION because we were born in sins
    and are habitual sinners.

    You attained so much fame and comforts. But unfortunately if you die with out accepting
    Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord your ETERNITY is THE TORMENTING FIRE OF HELL. I
    love you so with a hope to save your soul from the eternal sufferings wrote you the eternal truth of God.

    Now it is left to you to accept or reject the truth of God.

    Yes, if you have any doubt to our Creator loving God’s ordained only one way of
    salvation that is JESUS CHRIST, being HE called and separated me to proclaim this
    GOOD NEWS I can definitely get you and to your followers an undeniable sign from our
    Creator Almighty God “even rasing a dead to life”.

    Kindly contact me to this email. Shriman ji I am also a PATRIOT south Indian.

    In Jesus love

  25. Dear Mr James Randi

    Because I am a disciple of the Almighty God Jesus Christ I love you and pray for your
    SALVATION. Because I know from the God of the Holy Bible that if any one among
    us those are alive under the sun die today without repenting and accepting with our own
    tongue JESUS CHRIST as our Lord and Savior their place is ETERNAL SUFFERING

    You didn’t believe your Creator’s own ordained this only one of Salvation, that is ok,
    but you teach the poor souls against it. So you just think what could be your sufferings
    in the eternity if the contents of the Holy Bible is true.

    You have kept one million US dollar for those Jesus Christ’s disciples who can prove
    with an undeniable evidence to the public that Jesus Christ is in deed alive.

    So I was writing you since 2008 that you keep that money with you(because this money is
    going to perish with you if you won’t accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior)and arrange a
    public meeting where ever you like to proclaim me the truth of the Holy Bible i.e.JESUS

    When I preach this truth of God, the Almighty God Himself will give you all HIS EVIDENCE
    TO LIFE.

    you never replied me. but when I again wrote to you all the eternal truth of God in God’s
    love on 15th of this month you gave me this reply that I have forwarded with this my mail.

    Randi bhai ( “randi” is a hindi word uses for prostitutes here in my country India) our Creator
    God made you an “EUNUCH” before His son JESUS CHRST. HE compelled you to ran away
    from a simple disciple of His begottn son JESUS CHRIST. You accepted this fact by
    running away from your own given word.

    If you are a man with a strong back bone please send me the necessary sponsor ship papers for
    obtaining me a visiting visa to your country and see whether I reach their with the money from
    my own pocket for my Lord Jesus Christ.

    Randy bhai please don’t challenge your Creator God because you just came from the bloody
    dust but our Creator God is not like us.

    I love you sincerely soI wrote this letter to you

    In God’s love

    A simple disciple of Jesus Christ
