The Weight of Glory

  The church that loses her fiery hatred for errors concerning the truth of Scripture walks the way of a sickness unto death. Placidly accepting heresies with the church at Thyatira (Rev. 2:20) or tolerating evil with mild protestations as did Eli (I Sam. 3), she places herself under God’s judg­ment of that which claims […]

Our Christian View on Fraternities

That Beacon Lights requests an article of this nature shows two things: the staff is aware of the growing number of Protestant Reformed young people attending colleges and universities, and that the apostasy of both public and private institutions is well advanced and may be expected to proliferate. The undersigned is also aware of these […]

Genesis 5

The Generations of Adam: This chapter carries the significant introductory statement: ‘‘This is the book (or record) of the generations of Adam.” We have similar statements throughout Genesis. See chap. 2:4. Up to this point we were dealing with the “generations” or history of the newly created heavens and earth. Now we are dealing more […]

Space forbids […]

Christianity and Progress

The Protestant Reformed Churches are fifty years behind the times! Have you ever heard this charge? It comes in many forms. Our Churches are old-fashioned. Our Churches do not keep up with modern developments. Our people are not interested in progress and shield themselves from change. Our doctrine is outdated and our life and walk […]

Christian Liberty in Matters Indifferent

“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient” (I Cor. 6:12). By “all things” Paul certainly does not mean all things absolutely, without exception. For from the preceding context we learn plainly that idolatry, coveting, drunkenness and extortion are unlawful, thoroughly con­demned. In the context following we learn that fornication is […]
