Our church at South Holland, 111, has named a new trio which includes the Revs. M. Schipper, H. Veldman and B. Woudenberg, from which Rev. H. Veldman was chosen. Hull’s congregation received a letter from Rev. C. Hanko in which he declined their call to come over and help them.
Campus Crusade for Christ believes it has come up with not only a legitimate but a unique way of presenting the biblical truth of the gospel. Continually and everywhere crusaders are raising the question, “Have you heard of the Four Spiritual Laws?” Law One says in part, “God loves you . . .” Law Two states that sinful and separated from God, no one can know and experience His love.

Hoeksema was of the opinion that, although many historians leave the impression that the Synod of Orange A.D. 529, represents a last victory for the Augustinian conception of predestination and sovereign grace, this synod much rather left the impression that it was afraid of the strict Augustinian principles, and that his doctrine was certainly not maintained by this synod.

By the time you read this piece a president will probably be chosen—although there remains the possibility that no present nominee will command an electoral majority, that the election will be given to the House of Representatives, and that the next president will not be known till next January.
Evaluation of Kuitert’s View of Scripture (continued) In the November 1 issue I began a discussion of the crucial issue of organic inspiration as it relates to all the current discussion of the so-called “human element” or “human factor” in Holy Scripture. At the conclusion of my last editorial on this subject I set forth the several elements of organic inspiration, and I promised to elaborate on these and to point out their significance. To this task the present editorial is addressed.
