Adorning Self with Modest Apparel

(I Tim. 2:9.10) Both Paul and Peter have something to say about how we adorn ourselves as Christians, whether we be men or women, boys or girls in God’s church. The word “adornment” is not a nasty word in the Bible. The word refers to the well-arranged adornment of God Himself when he created the […]

An Open Letter to Gramps

Dear Gramps, I really enjoyed your letter in the June-July issue of the Beacon Lights. It’s easy for us young people to forget that you are sincerely concerned about us. And that’s exactly the point of this letter. I was asked to write an article for the Beacon Lights on the topic: “How Young People […]

Feeble-Mind

“Comfort the feeble-minded”-II Thess. 5:14. This man fell an easy prey to the Giant Slay-good. He was attacked on Assault Lane, and the giant began to pick his pockets with intent, next, to pick his bones. It was Great-heart who rescued him from the giant. Feeble-mind was pale and sickly.

Remember Your Creator

Remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth. The wise man Solomon had this word for us from Holy Writ. I could not help but think of this scripture as I was pondering my editorial on the Reformation. Many times you as young people take the reformation for granted. You say you care […]

Satanism

A social worker was murdered, his body was cut into six parts, and his heart was eaten. Outward appearances would sug­gest that this terrible event had happened in some remote jungle of this world by savages who have had little or no contact with civilization and Christianity. But this didn’t happen in some remote jungle […]

The World that Perished

The World that Perished by John C. Whitcomb Jr. Baker Book House, paperback, 1973 Uniformitarians are yet attacking the Word of God. However, the truths of creation and the global catastrophe of the Genesis Flood are still maintained by many Christian theologians and scientists around the world.
