Quintus Florens Tertullian
160-220
North African defender of the faith. Tertullian was born of
heathen parents in Carthage, Africa. He studied law and lived
an exceedingly sinful life until he received the Lord Jesus
Christ at the age of 30. He became an intense, hardhitting
defender of the fundamentals of the Christian faith against
the traditions of Romanism. He joined the Montanists, a group
of premillennial, Bible-believing Christians, and spent the
rest of his life writing and preaching primitive Christianity
as opposed to Romanism with its ecclesiastical traditions and
ceremonies contrary to the Scriptures.
