And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. But neither so did their witness agree together. And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus saying, Answerest thou nothing? What is it which these witness...

Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.

Our Lord describes the great evil that proceeds from the depraved heart of man: “For from within out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness,...

Unbiblical Divorce and Remarriage  As has been said, it is my conviction that divorce and adultery never can break the marriage-tie. Only death can do this. It is true that, according to Scripture, fornication or adultery gives the innocent party the right to leave the guilty party, although this even does not always have to take place for forgiveness and reconciliation is always the first obligation of the Christian.

One of the most important developments in evangelical and Reformed churches and schools in recent times is the denial of the historicity of Genesis 1-11. The churches and schools either teach or accept the teaching that the events recorded in these chapters never happened. The worlds were not framed by the Word of God in seven successive commands over six days of one evening and one morning each. The human race did not originate by a man’s being formed from the dust and by a woman’s being made from a rib of the man. The Adam and Eve of Genesis 2 and 3...
