A Parable of Solomon

The book of Proverbs is one which introduces a new method of instruction in the Bible. In this book Solomon uses a short sentence, generally unrelated to its predecessor, which contains a complete idea.

Women’s Lib in the Church

I received my Beacon Lights today and read immediately the article “Women’s Lib in the Church”.

The Excellency of the Christian Woman

The position of the woman in society is under serious attack. The woman is being systematically destroyed by those who support the proposed Equal Rights Amendment. The woman is being viciously annihilated by the Women’s Liberation Movement. Most tragically of all the woman is being attacked by the church, when she is given a position […]
