Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Let me express my appreciation for your efforts as editor-in-chief of the Beacon Lights magazine. I am used to seeing fine Christian reading and scholarship within its pages. However, I am somewhat dismayed with the editorial you printed in the August/September 1993 issue (White Men Can’t Jump). I am con­vinced that it was […]

Spriensma’s speech was “Keeping Our Bodies Pure.” The text used was I Cor. 6:18 “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth […]

White Men Can’t Jump

April 1, 1992- White Men Can’t Jump. I saw that movie. I saw it at Studio 28 in Wyoming, MI. There was nothing special about the movie itself. It was hilarious, but it didn’t win an Oscar. It was excit­ing, but not more than any other. It wasn’t even the only movie I’ve seen; there […]
