Exposition of I Peter 1:4, 5 (continued)

We now stand before the task of inquiring into the meaning of the threefold qualification of this inheri­tance in heaven. Of his inheritance, kept in heaven, Peter tells us, that it is: incorruptible, undefilable and that it fades not away. Concerning each of these elements just a word.

The Union Question / How The Old Country Knows History

The Union Question The Reformed Journal recently conducted a dis­cussion on the question of a believer’s affiliation with a worldly union. The nature of this discussion one may ascertain from a reply to Dr. George Stob by Mr. Joseph Gritters, the latter representing the C.L.A.

The Closing of Concordia

The article that appears below, “Reply to the Rev. Kok”, was written and sent before Concordia was closed. I think it very strange, to put it mildly, that Con­cordia first allows the Rev. Kok to attack me, permits him to announce to all our people that he intends to ask me some questions, and thereupon closes its col­umns so that I cannot reply.
