Labor’s New Muscle Newsweek magazine of April 3, 1978 points out new and growing attempts of the unions to gain control of the workers of the country. They are seeking to use their considerable financial clout to compel employers to submit to their demands for unionization. We might be noticing some of these effects in our own area soon. The article states:
It often seems as if those who attempt to solve our problems do not know them at all. We may be poor, and one who is well off tries to bring us comfort and help. Or, we may be sick, and one who has good health comes with prayer and words of comfort. Or, we may be passing through a particular trial, and one who is untried speaks with us. And although this comfort and care is brought with good Christian intent, nevertheless we are often prone to say that the one attempting to comfort us knows nothing of our...
A FURTHER ELUCIDATION THAT ABRAHAM’S SONS ARE FREE IN CHRIST From the time of Sinai till the coming of Christ the church was under the pedagogue: the Law of commandments contained in ordinances!

An Evaluation of Limited Inerrancy There are three very serious errors which lie at the basis of the theory of, “limited inerrancy.” In the first place, they who hold to limited inerrancy fail to approach Scripture in faith. Secondly, they presuppose a human factor responsible for thecontent of Scripture. Thirdly, they separate the historical from revelation. They place a disjunction between sacred history and revelation.

Its somber courts, enhanced with smoke from the altar. It was God’s house. And Israel came to dwell with God. They bowed in reverence; the fear of Jehovah was in this place. But, wait!
“We believe, that the ministers of God’s Word, and the elders and deacons, ought to be chosen to their respective offices by a lawful election by the Church, with calling upon the name of the Lord, and in that order which the Word of God teacheth. Therefore everyone must take heed, not to intrude himself by indecent means, but is bound to wait till it shall please God to call him; that he may have testimony of his calling, and be certain and assured that it is of the Lord.
In The Banner, April 7, 1978, Dr. James Daane writes the first of a promised two articles on “The Logic of Election.” In this article he joins forces, as might be expected, with Dr. Harry Boer against the Reformed doctrine of reprobation. Boer, as you know, has filed a gravamen against the Canons and their claim that the doctrine of sovereign reprobation is the express testimony of sacred Scripture. Daane has long denied the doctrine of sovereign reprobation, and he does so expressly in his The Freedom of God; but he never had the honesty to file a gravamen.
