An Outside Insight on Christmas

I think other writers have clearly stated, much better than I, what the Christian should have as a guide to the celebration of Christmas. I refer to Dirk Westra’s article of last year, “How Should We Cele­brate Christmas?” and Michael Bosveld’s contribution to the Christmas issue of Beacon Lights in 1989/1990. I admire the way […]

Did You Ever Wonder?

Did you ever wonder about those shepherds who watched their flocks that night? Did you ever wonder about those shepherds who saw the heavenly light? Did you ever wonder about those shepherds who heard the Christmas story? Did you ever wonder about those shepherds who saw the angelic glory? Did you ever wonder about those […]

Do You Live What You Believe?

We often make excuses or allowances for our sin. We come up with many excuses to try to quiet our conscience. We may say, we were forced into that sin, or anyone would have done that because of the cir­cumstances involved. Maybe we say, we could do nothing else, we were powerless or not strong […]

Personal Evangelism (3)

How do we begin to talk to someone about the gospel of Jesus Christ? Where do we find the courage to do this? How do we overcome the fear of being ridiculed when we do this? What do we do when people are immediately “turned off when we begin to talk about Christianity? Let’s try […]

Sports- Craziness

Daniel Kleyn’s October article entitled “Sports-Craziness” is somewhat upsetting to me. While the article brings out many examples of abuses and extremes, I’m afraid that the author fails to adequately point out the impor­tance and virtue of sports in the life of a Christian young person. Various documented studies show the immediate benefits of sports […]

Watching Daily at My Gates

December 1 Genesis 3:14-21          What a promise in the darkest of days! Adam and Eve had just lost the beautiful face-to-face fellowship that they had had with their God. Now because of their sin they were con­demned to death. Out of that darkness comes the promise of enmity between their seed and Satan’s seed. The […]
