We presume that all our readers are acquainted with the fact that the ministers of the Protestant Reformed Churches and the ministers of the Reformed Church in the U. S. have had several conferences in years past. The fact of this matter has been advertised repeatedly. The members of both churches have also contributed financially for this worthy venture. The last Conference was held at Hull, Iowa, and the conference for this year will be held at Sutton, Nebr. The undersigned brethren have been appointed by the 1946 conference to take care of matters for the 1947 Conference. And at...

Mennonite Migrations. . . . Great lovers of rural life with its comparative simplicity are the various branches of Mennonites. The stricter groups, as for example the Amish, are particularly careful about keeping themselves free from all entanglements with the world as much as possible. Just recently a group of Amish Reformed folk in Indiana decided to move to Tennessee to escape worldly influences. Unable to maintain their own high schools, and compelled by Indiana law to keep their children in school until they are sixteen years of age, this Amish group is migrating to Tennessee to keep their children...

When we were students in our Theological Seminary, our professors would continually stress the importance of keeping in mind that the Bible is no Dogmatics. The Holy Scriptures indeed, thus it was stressed, were the only source of dogmatics, to be sure. But this did not constitute them a dogmatics pure and simple. It is well to bear this fundamental truth concerning the Word of God in mind also in this study of “Old Testament Quotations in the New Testament.” When the apostle Paul speaks of the great article of faith, the ascension of Christ to the right hand of...

If we look back over history we get a picture as follows: A series of evils arise; there comes a clash, a...

This article (of the Church Order) reads: “If anyone complain that he has been wronged by the decision of a minor assembly, he shall have the right to appear to a major ecclesiastical assembly, and whatever may be agreed upon by a majority of vote shall be considered settled and binding, unless it be proved to conflict with the Word of God or with the articles of the Church Order, as long as they are not changed by a general synod.” Let us first of all concentrate on this article and determine exactly what it says and what it does...

Also from this aspect, life in the creature is but the reflection of life in God, who is its Creator and Source. For He is the Triune. He is one in being and nature, in mind and will, in holiness and righteousness, in knowledge and wisdom, and in all His infinite perfections. Nor is He a mere power: He is a personal God. And the Scriptures reveal Him to us as three in persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. These divine persons subsist in the one divine being, and they stand in relation of perfect harmony to one another. The...

At the time of this writing, labor bills have been passed by both the house of representatives and the senate in Washington, the bill that was passed by the senate being the more lenient of the two. The activities and practices of the labor unions and their leaders, in recent years, that were condoned by the New Deal, and enjoyed the protection of the Wagner Act, finally resulted in a reductio ad absurdum, especially in the attempt of Mr. Lewis to defy the very government of our country, and opened the eyes of the public to tire fact that no...
