God is a self-conscious, intelligent, voluntary Spirit, possessing and this without limitation and to an infinite degree all perfections. He therefore can and also does reveal Himself. This revelation is twofold: general and special. The former is that conscious and voluntary act of God whereby He makes Himself known to all men as their creator through the medium of creation and providence, in order that men may glorify Him and, failing in this, be without excuse. The latter is that conscious and voluntary act of God whereby He makes Himself known unto His people as their redeemer-God in Christ Jesus...

Esteemed Editor: The undersigned would appreciate space in this paper for the purpose of asking several questions which have perplexed me. The questions which I in all seriousness ask are these namely: If an institution, be it company, corporation or organization, declares bankruptcy, it is not true that an institution must under the state law (by whose authority they also declare bankruptcy) dissolve or disband and discontinue to do business under their former name and must re-organize or re-incorporate before again commencing operations? If such be the case, namely that the statements in question number one are true, may such...

Esteemed Editor: May I have a little space in your columns for the following, In the S.B. of June 15 appears an article by Rev. C. Hanko on “Separate Chr. Labor Organizations” in which he ends by expressing a desire for frank discussion. To this discussion I would like to contribute. And since the discussion revolves around the merits and demerits of the present C. L. A., I shall also group my remarks around that organization. To begin with, then, I would like to state that the question is not whether we shall boost the C. L. A., for personally...

Dear Mr. Editor, May I express my appreciation to Mr. J. Gritter and the Rev. A. Petter for responding to my article which appeared in the S.B. some time ago, especially since a discussion of this kind can prove beneficial to those interested in a separate labor organization. But to avoid misunderstanding, I would also appreciate the privilege of answering some of the criticism that is offered. Mr. Gritter expresses surprise that the C. L. A. should be accused of not being as distinctive as a Christian labor organization should be, especially because they have always been told that their organization...

(I am sorry that the following article, which reached me in time for the July issue, escaped my attention, due to my being out of town for a while. Another small article on “Current Events,” intended for the present issue will appear in the next, D.V.). —The Editor Our Times It will be conceded by almost everyone that the times in which we live are very significant. There are many things with a view to which one would rather speak of his “feeling” than of his logical and reasonable knowledge. One cannot always lay his finger on the exact spot...

The origin of family worship is very beautifully described in Genesis, the book of Beginnings. The Covenant People were a family and divine worship was family worship. Hence, as the Book of Beginnings describes the beginning of heaven and earth, it also depicts the beginning of that blessed relation of love between God and His people and that is a relation of worship. For worship is love in action. And therefore there is also such a thing as family worship, the love of God in the family induces the family to worship, where that love is lacking family worship is...

Marxian Socialism Karl Marx was a well-educated German, the son of Jewish parents who had become Christians. He was exiled from Germany for revolutionary opinions while a young man and lived almost all his later life in London. It is interesting that almost the only paying job he ever had was writing articles about European politics for the New York Tribune. The socialistic philosophy of Karl Marx may be characterized as historical materialism. All history was viewed by him materialistically. And history to him is the class-struggle which will culminate in a class-less world, when communism will be supreme. In...
