Your March 15 issue has me listed as a speaker for the Psalmody Conference which is set for this August. I have no such assignment. Perhaps you would want to find out who does have this assignment and give proper credit for this to your readers. —(Rev.)

The Baptist Objection During the reformation period in Holland, from 10-50,000 Baptists were put to death by cooperating Roman Catholic and Protestant Churches. This was the result of a deliberate refusal to listen to what the Baptists were saying, while using Munster as a pretext for branding “every baptist” as a heretic. You are an educated man, and as such should know better. In your “Covenant” editorial (The SB, April 15, 1990), you seriously misrepresent us and make some very false accusations, the kind that led your spiritual ancestors to slaughter Baptists. Please print the following as a letter in the next...

The SB on Tape I received this very nice letter and thought you might be able to use it or part of it in a future issue under “Letters.” We are still looking for additional subscribers who have reading problems, and even those who do not find the time to sit down and read each issue and would prefer to use their personal cassette player at home or in their Car.

Ministers within their denomination had charged them with being Anabaptist. In particular, the well-known Rev. Jan Karl Van Baalen had written a pamphlet in 1922...

Substantial increases in publishing costs at every level make this necessary. We trust that our readers will understand and will realize that at less than 50¢ per issue the Standard Bearer is still a good magazine bargain. Let me take this opportunity also to suggest and urge that our churches inflate their collections for the Standard Bearer.

Report from Singapore. Elsewhere in this issue you will find the first report to our readers from our missionary in Singapore, Rev. Arie den Hartog, and his wife. In a note to me Rev. den Hartog worried that his article was too long, and he invited me to edit it. However, the report is so interesting and packed with information that I left it unedited. How about flooding the den Hartogs with mail from all our churches? Let’s make an agreement, though, that they may answer by means of periodic reports in the Standard Bearer.
