Rev. Moore is pastor of the Protestant Reformed Church of Hull, Iowa. In the last article on this topic (see December 1, 199l issue) we saw the attempt of the sinner to excuse his sin, before man and really also before I God. When anyone desires to continue a walk of sin, it is necessary to try to justify such a walk. By grace only shall one confess that sin, repent, and receive the forgiving grace of God. Having received a letter from a sinner trying to justify his walk in sin as an active homosexual, I responded with a...

In Ezekiel 23 we find two names of women given to the two nations in Canaan. According to this word of God, Aholah represents Samaria or the ten tribes of the north, and Aholibah represents Judah. The prophecy concerning Aholah and Aholibah contains for us today much needed instruction, as well as a warning which should serve to bring us to repentance and watchfulness.

I would like to consider with you a portion of the truth of God’s Word as it is given to us in I John 3:1-3. We read a very blessed truth in these verses. It is good to reflect upon them for awhile; and thus we shall through this meditation. First we quote the text referred to above: “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.

Richard G. Moore is pastor of the Protestant Reformed Church of Hull, Iowa. In this day in which we are called to live as the children of God, it is very important that we walk with a spiritual sensitivity towards all things. The apostle Paul expresses this in the verses nine through eleven in the first chapter of Philippians. “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ; Being...

In this article our attention is drawn to the prophet Hosea’s word to an apostate Israel. The message in Hosea seven verse sixteen is one which Israel had to hear in the day of the prophet, but also is a Word of God to us today. It is one to which we do well to give ear. The prophet uses in his verse a very demonstrative figure: “They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in...

The people of God in our day live at a time of growing apostasy and immorality. It is a day of relative ease, on the other hand, in that the church undergoes no strong persecution. It is, therefore, a day of great temptation. There is a very real temptation to go to sleep—to turn our eyes away from our weaknesses and sins, in order to continue the so-called peace that we enjoy. The attitude of the world that everything is okay as long as it does not personally hurt another, is an attitude that the church is tempted to follow.

Throughout the ages, the church has had to contend for the faith over against many wrong conceptions of the Scriptures. Man, who would exalt self rather than God, sinfully has set forth doctrines that attempt to confuse. But the Bible is simple and clear, and the simple truth of the Scriptures has always brought comfort and strength to God’s children. When there is an attempt to introduce error into the midst of the church it is introduced by the setting forth of their devious tenets in the most abstract and confusing language possible.

In this article, I would like to consider the truth as given to us by our God in a particular text of Scripture. It is a Word of God that is especially appropriate to consider in the days in which we are called to live: The text is Jeremiah 6:16: “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”
