The question whether the crucifixion of Christ took place oil the day of the Jewish Passover, or on the day before, has, since the second century of the Church, engaged the minds of the attentive readers of Holy Writ, This is due to the fact that there seems to be an irreconcilable conflict between the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and the gospel according to John in respect to this particular question. All the gospel writers are manifestly agreed as to the day on Which Jesus was crucified, namely Friday, but they seem to differ as to the...

Dear Mr. Editor, Will you please allow me to answer G. T. E. and others who have lately attacked the G. L. A. in the columns of this paper. So many wrong things have been said, and so many unwarranted conclusions have been drawn that a, reply is really very necessary. I do not at all like the tone of some of these articles, nor the unbrotherly spirit that is shown toward an organization that is ‘doing all it can to solve the problems of our Christian workers and protect them against the ungodly unions while these men themselves are...

Editor of the Standard Bearer Dear Mr. Editor, Through the courtesy of several C. L, A. Members I am being kept informed concerning the discussions on the C, L, A. and the strike question carried on in your paper, I have followed it with great interest. Not wishing to make misuse of a privilege granted me once before I have refrained from seeking placement of comment, especially since I noticed that there are others who are well able to defend our position. However, in the issue of March 15 there appears an article by C. H. that can hardly be...

THE COMMAND TO DRIVE OUT THE CANAANITES—Num. 33:50-56 “And the Lord spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: when ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan: then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you. . . ” The command is repeated in somewhat different language at Deut. 7:2: “And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them (the Canaanites) before thee: thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them. . . .” This, then, was the...

As was said, it is important to consider that the literary contest of the church fathers with unbelief was carried on with: 1) the non-Christian Gentile world; 2) the non-Christian Jews; and 3) the heretics in the church. In this article attention is directed to the contest of the church with heresy. It was especially in this conflict that the substance of Christian truth was developed and its logical apprehension unfolded. For the assaults of heresy upon the truth, compelled the church to ponder its own articles of faith and oppose them, as fortified by the Scriptures, to the vain...

But there is more. There is in the joy in the Lord of which the prophet speaks an element of perfect trust and childlike confidence. He that rejoices in the God of his salvation knows that He is good, and that His mercies endure forever. He is always good to us, and always gives unto us that which tends to our eternal salvation. Plainly this confidence that the Lord does all things, and that He does them well, is the basis of the confession of Habakkuk. God is God, and He is the Lord of all. He is the sole...

Q. 20. Are all men then, as they perished in Adam, saved by Christ? A. No; only those who are ingrafted into him, and receive all his benefits by. a true faith. Q. 21. What is true faith? A. True faith is not only a certain knowledge, whereby I hold for truth all that God has revealed to us in his word, but also an assured confidence, which the Holy Ghost works by the gospel, in my heart; that not only to others, but to me also, remission of sin, everlasting righteousness and salvation, are freely given by God, merely...

That we were deeply shocked when on April 1 the news reached us that our God had suddenly called the Rev. Wm. Verhil away from his earthly field of labor and from the church militant, as well as from his dear ones, is merely to express what many more experienced with us when they heard of his sudden decease. For sudden it was. According to reports we received the brother suffered a heart attack about eight o’clock in the morning, that caused him to lapse into unconsciousness. He never regained consciousness. And at about ten-thirty that same morning of April...

And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right, hand of the power of God. Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. And...
