Senior Spotlight – John Saunders

Favorite Subject: Theology 

Favorite book read at WA: The Republic of Plato

Favorite WA tradition:  Bel Canto

Senior Thesis Statement: Over the past 20 years, porn addiction has rapidly grown around the world. Therefore, we must realize the urgent need to address and discuss porn addiction because of how it infects and corrupts our relationships, work life, and our health.

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: Pornography addiction is one of the most prominent addictions in the world, and yet, we rarely hear people addressing it. Why? Having battled with pornography addiction for more than 8 years, I have personally seen how it can affect one’s life. In my senior thesis, I explain what pornography addiction is, how it has become so popular, and highlight how its effects are so destructive to society and human beings.

Plans: I plan to attend Wheaton College for Biblical and theological studies. 

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?
Seek out the best for others. Do that which is difficult for what matters in life is difficult and hard. Always trust God and be an example of Christ to others around you

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:

Favorite Bible Verse: “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).

Prayer Request: Pray that I will stay focused and stay on the narrow path throughout my life. Pray that I will find a church near my college that has sound doctrine, close community, and is Gospel-driven. Pray that I will stay faithful to God and His plan for my life. Pray that God will keep guiding and blessing Westminster Academy, Mr. Janikowsky, the students, and faculty.
