The Evangelical Approach According To The Old Dispensation

We are discussing the question, “What is the evangelical approach according to the Scriptures?” In the previous article on this subject we considered the preaching of the Gospel in the world before the flood.

The History of the Ecumenical Movement

During the past months, preliminary to the current presidential election, we have been bombarded with the phrase: “The Great Society.” In religious circles there is heard a similar phrase to describe the present “glorious development” in the history of the church: “The Great Century.” This “Great Century” includes a hundred years of increasingly intense efforts towards uniting all churches into one super-church covering the whole earth. To give you a bird’s-eye view of this ecumenical development, I quote from one intimately associated with the present-day movement:

Its purpose is to undergird the political United Nations. 

The Doctrine of the Church, Chapter IX, The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper (continued from the October 15 issue)

therefore, as the sign of the activity of saving faith, whereby we appropriate the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, belongs very essentially to the symbolism of the Lord’s Supper. As certainly as the activity of saving faith is necessary for the appropriation of Christ and all His benefits, so surely do the eating and drinking of the broken bread and the wine poured out belong essentially to the symbolism of the supper of the Lord.
