Missionary Notes

It is now some, nine months ago that we started our labors in the Reformed Hope Church of Loveland, Colorado. From time to time we have written of these labors and attempted to give a glimpse of the life of that church. 

Family Visitation: D. Objections to Family Visiting

Frequently, even among those who are members of Reformed Churches, there emits rather strong sentiments of discontentment with the venerable practice of family visitation. In some circles these dissatisfactions are catered to, resulting in either the complete abolition of the practice or in its being substituted with something less poignant and official.

The Canons of Dordrecht, Part Two, Exposition of the Canons, Second Head of Doctrine, Of the Death of Christ, and the Redemption of Men Thereby

Article 6. And, whereas many who are called by the gospel, do not repent, nor believe in Christ, but perish in unbelief; this is not owing to any defect or insufficiency in the sacrifice offered by Christ upon the cross, but is wholly to be imputed to themselves.

The Concept “Faith” in the Old Testament

Have you any idea how often the word “faith” and its related terms “faithful, faithfully, faithfulness and believe” occur in the English Old Testament? I have in mind the King James Version, which is the one commonly used in our churches. A study of your Bible with this question in mind will prove to be most revealing, even startling. 

The Sabbath In His Fear (5)

“Equally true it is that what is good and according to God’s law on Monday is good and according to His law on the Sabbath.”  So we wrote in the February 1 issue of the Standard Bearer.  We pause briefly in our consideration of how positively to observe the Sabbath in His fear, as we began to do in the last issue, to say a few more things about the above statement.  There may be need for this. At least it was brought to our attention that there might for some be need of clarification. 

Exposition of I Corinthians 1-4 (10)

In connection with the verses 1-4 of the second chapter of I Corinthians we must still make a few observations. We refer, of course, to the rather well-known theory that Paul gives expression to arenewed and a rededicated resolve to walk in the calling wherewith he had been called as an apostle.  The theory just mentioned reasons, briefly, as follows: 

The Prophecy of Zechariah: The solemn declaration to Joshua.

i>6. And the angel of the Lord protested to Joshua and said,  7. Thus saith Jehovah of Hosts, If thou wilt walk in my ways and keep my charge, Thou shalt judge my house and also keep my courts, And I will give thee access among those standing here.  8.

The Apostates of 1953 and the Three Points

An article in De Wachter of Feb. 14, 1956, by Prof. M. Monsma, indirectly corroborates what I have been writing about the apostates and the Three Points of 1924. At least, the professor suggests that those that apostatized from the truth as maintained by our churches might better return to the fold of the Christian Reformed Church, and virtually gives them an invitation to do so.
