Kalamazoo’s Annual Congregational Meeting held Dec. 2 included consideration of a permanent place of worship, and the newest outlet of the Reformed Witness Hour over their local WKPR beginning Dec. 6. Rev. Harbach was the speaker for the first few weeks.

The World Council of Churches

The epitome of ecumenism today is the World Council of Churches (W.C.C.). The ecumenical movement and the W.C.C. movement are often considered synonymous. Even the W.C.C. movement appears to have been in part the motive for Pope John XXIII convoking the Second Vatican Council.

To The Utmost Of Our Power

Instructing our children in harmony with the truths of our confession is not an optional matter. It is a most solemn duty imposed upon us by God and, involving a grave responsibility. This responsibility is voluntarily assumed by us, the parents, in the baptism of our children; and its application is not limited to any given sphere of our or our children’s lives. It embraces the church, the home and the school. God Himself defines the limitation of this duty when He commands us in His Word:

The Inspiration Of The Scriptures

Discussing the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, we were calling attention in our last article to this truth as it is maintained in the Word of God. We noted that there are passages in the Bible that directly teach this doctrine of divine inspiration. And we concluded our article by quoting Jeremiah 1:9; Jer. 36:17-18: “Then the Lord put forth His hand, and touched my mouth.

Handfuls of Purpose

And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter.  And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech. . . . . 

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

That the Roman Catholics indeed teach that in the mass Christ through the priests is offered as a continual sacrifice is still plainer from the Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent, Chapter 2 of the Twenty-second Session. There we read: “And forasmuch as, in this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the mass, that same Christ is contained and.

Mission Gains The Criterion?

“Limited Atonement and Evangelism” (Reformed Journal, May-June, 1964) is the title of an article by Prof. Harold Dekker in which he continues his discussion of missions and the love of God. This article by Prof. Dekker is devoted especially to the proposition that “The doctrine of limited atonement as commonly understood and observed in the Christian Reformed Church impairs the principle of the universal love of God and tends to inhibit missionary spirit and activity.”
