Under this heading, it was assigned to me by our Editor-in-chief to write a few articles in the Standard Bearer. Now, to write news from our churches for our paper is not an easy task; as the readers can easily understand. In the first place it is not easy for the simple reason that all the news from our churches is written in Our Church News, the small, weekly paper which is well liked by old and young, and whose Editor is a capable man. In the second place it is hard for this reason, church news in the Standard...

The Nazarite, as the name that he bore denotes, was the separate one. The name is explained at Numbers 6:1, “When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the Lord.” Let us see what is implied in this separation. First, “He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor or grapes, nor eat moist grapes or dried. All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of...

John Huss was one of God’s faithful witnesses—a man who, on account of his protest against the wickedness in the church and his exaltation of the Bible as the one infallible authority and the sole criterion of life and doctrine, died a martyr’s death.

This is the first and great commandment; and the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Q. 5. Canst thou keep all these things perfectly? In no wise; for I am...

The “America First Committee,” in a brief pamphlet recently distributed by them, reminds the President of the United States, and the American people, of some “solemn and sacred pledges” Mr. Roosevelt made during his 1940 election campaign. He said: “We are arming ourselves not for any purpose of conflict or intervention in foreign disputes. I repeat again that I stand on the platform of our party; we will not participate in foreign wars and will not send our Army, Naval or Air Forces to fight in foreign lands outside of the Americas except in case of attack. “It is for...

In this world, especially the modern world, with its flood of literature in the form of magazines and newspapers, and its incessant radio broadcasts, it is very easy indeed to become acquainted with the world’s viewpoint with respect to anything at all. Predominantly that viewpoint, the viewpoint of Man, is being presented of any topic that is being discussed. And it is not easy for the Church and for the individual believer to escape the danger of adopting this viewpoint and to maintain his own, or rather Scripture’s viewpoint with respect to the same realities and events that are evaluated...

“My father and mother were none too religious, and you know what that means for the children.” Thus, not many weeks ago, spoke an aged brother of more than fourscore years in explaining the comparative indifference of his teens and early twenties.

Here especially it is true: what men sow men must expect to reap. Always the home instructs. It is not a matter...
