Why We Teach

One important thing that I learned in school this year is how the church should be separate from unbelievers. During World War II, the U.S. government put out a series of propaganda films called “Why We fight.” Perhaps this article is a bit of propaganda for our Christian schools. And the “propaganda” is very effective […]

When in Doubt

“In doubt and temptation, I rest, Lord, in Thee..” Few things have influenced society in the last 400 years more than science. Today our world revolves around scientific achievements and the resulting technology. This edition of the Beacon Lights was written on a digital computer (invented around 1940), printed on a Xerox copier (1960), and […]

What Is the Federation Board?

“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies. Fulfil ye my joy, that ye like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.” Philippians 2:1-2. “Be ye of one mind!” This passage, in a nutshell, explains […]

Are politicians and those in authority over us, worthy of our prayers? Look at the way they run the country, wasting the tax money we send in, with their stand on abortion, their calling homosexuality just a life style; the list goes on. We should not reason because of their wrongful doings, therefore, that we […]

After three years of dedication to the Beacon Lights, Pete himself has decided to resign. The Beacon Lights went through some major changes during those […]

Championship Basketball – Respect

The whistle blows. Both sides are tense as the tip-off begins the game, a game that will decide which team will win the championship trophy. Respect. It’s a matter of life—or death. Bang, bang . . . the ball bangs against the floor as the blue team dribbles it toward their hoop. The opposition is […]

“An Apple a Day” (1)

“Hum—hum-hum—an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Julie sang the familiar phrase as she skipped into the kitchen and selected an apple from a bowl. She began munching on it as she went back outdoors, and in very little time had nothing left but the core in her hand. It was a warm, lazy […]

Our Certain Victory

When the believer reads the Word of God, it is at the same time both crystal clear but so deep that he can never see to the bottom. The book of Daniel is one example. The smallest children can understand and love the story of Daniel and his three friends. But when it comes to […]
