An Interesting Discussion (1)

Both because the discussion is interesting in itself, and because we are discussing the case of Dr. Clark in our paper, our readers may be interested in the following report, which we reprint from “The Presbyterian Guardian” of April 10, 1945: The Presbytery of Philadelphia of The Orthodox Presbyterian Church held its regular spring meeting on March 19th in Mediator Church, Philadelphia. The principal item of business was the consideration of the proposed answer to the complaint against the actions of the presbytery relative to the licensure and ordination of the Rev. Gordon H. Clark, Ph. D. Discussion of the...

Religious Freedom in Russia

From all appearances there is a decided change in the attitude of the Soviet government toward religion, which, according to some reporters, promises to outlast the war. Ever since the rise of the Soviet Union repeated attempts have been made to suppress, if not to wipe out religion in Russia. The first assault was launched in 1917 when Communism came into power. Priests and bishops were jailed, exiled and executed by the thousands. The church schools and press were outlawed, while property was confiscated and turned into nurseries, granaries, anti-religious museums and the like. In 1928 other steps were taken...

The Sphinx (Stalin) Of Moscow (Biography)

By the way of introduction let me say that the chief source of the material found in this article is the book “Stalin” written by Boris Souvarine a contemporary of Stalin until he was sent into exile. To know a little about the life and character of Joseph Stalin it is naturally necessary to follow the various political developments and phases of Russian history of the last several decades. Stalin cannot be separated from Russia, nor, as it is today, Russia from Stalin. Due to this two things will become evident. First, that it is well-nigh impossible to obtain even...

Our Missionary Calling (2)

So much has been written and said on this subject in the past twenty years of our history that it is not likely that anything new will be found in this discussion. Nor is that, perhaps, the most important at present but rather to re-emphasize what has already been said and written, and that is important. In reviewing our missionary activity of the past twenty years one finds cycles or periods of enthusiasm and labor and lethargy and non-activity. At present, apparently, we are approaching the bottom of the latter cycle, which finds our missionary activity in a state of...

Do the Reprobated Sin in Hell

The question that we are facing in this paper is: Do the reprobated sin in hell. As was said, to determine what it means that the wicked shall be destroyed is to answer the above question. That God will destroy the wicked means that He will make an end of them. But the question is: in what sense will he make an end of them. In answering this question we set out with taking notice how the wicked in this life, as dwellers on this earth, react to God, to the revelation of Himself in His moral law, in providence,...

The Text of a Complaint (9)

The third indictment the complainants bring against Dr. Clark is really twofold: according to them, he is a rationalist and an antinomian. The accusation of rationalism is based on the contention that Dr. Clark tries to solve problems, paradoxes, contradictions, particularly the problem of the relation between divine sovereignty and human responsibility. Anyone who makes an attempt to solve this problem, who tries to harmonize these two, who claims that this solution is possible, and especially he who is ready to offer his solution of this problem, is, according to the complainants a rationalist. We quote from the “Complaint.” “Dr....
