Rev. B. Woudenberg, of Edgerton, has declined the call from Redlands. 

All Around Us

TO BE WITHOUT GOD  Last summer tragedy struck the family of a prominent author in New Pork City. His 21 year old daughter and a roommate were brutally killed in an apartment building by some unknown murderer. 

Offerings and Alms

There is one element in our worship yet that requires our attention and concerning which we have a few things to say before we proceed to discuss our liturgical forms. That element is the offering and the giving of alms in the church. 

The Belgic Confession, Article XII (Continued)

The Nature and Work of the Angels  Concerning the subject of de nature and work of the angels our Confession does not go into detail. It tells us briefly: 1) That the angels were created good. 2) That they were created to be God’s messengers. And, 3) that they were created to serve God’s elect. 

The Church and the Sacraments, The Time of the Reformation, Views on the Sacraments (Lord’s Supper) The Reformed View

We will now discuss the Reformed view of the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. And, of course, it speaks for itself that, inquiring into the Reformed conception of this sacrament, we ask ourselves the question: what did John Calvin, the reformer of Geneva, say about this subject? And then we would remark, in the first place, that sometimes t is most famous of all reformers seemed to teach that the broken body and shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ must be identified with the bread and wine of the Lord’s Supper, that there is an influence of Christ’ s...

The Birth of Samson

And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt continue, and bear a son. . . .  And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him. 

The Doctrine of The Church, Chapter VIII, The Sacrament of Baptism (continued)

And that immersion as a sign of baptism is not necessary to express the essential idea of the sacrament may also be gathered from the foot-washing of the disciples, which Jesus performed in the upper room where He was gathered with His disciples to celebrate the last supper, John 13:4-10.


O, 1924!  Recently, I read an article in “Torch and Trumpet” written by Martin LaMaire, elder of a Christian Reformed Church in Chicago, Ill., in which he attempts to criticize Professor Harold Dekker in regard to the latter’s view on the love of God to all men. As far as the article itself is concerned, I cannot find anything in it that has not been written in the (Christian Reformed papers repeatedly.  However, I cannot help to call attention to the very first paragraph of the article which reads as follows:
