Youth’s Temptations

The tempter said, “O come my son, Life for you has just begun. If time you spend on Scripture’s truth, You’ll waste a lot of precious youth.   You’re only young once, you see, And now’s the time for gaiety- For movies, parties and such things, Church is sober-my world sings!”   And son was […]

That Insane Amusement Notion

It is amazing how quickly one becomes accustomed to insane ideas. What is essentially foolish and, at first, appears absurd, is repeatedly brought before our attention as really good and expedient and practical and indispensable and necessary and very desirable: gradually it turns our head, changes our judgment, our valuation of things and soon has […]

Thanksgiving by Comparison

Before our next issue is published, Thanksgiving day will have come and gone. And since this holiday will also be observed by services in our churches, it is perhaps well if we turn our thoughts for a few moments to this subject. We shall not recall for you its origin since that was very ably […]

It is not Enough

Almost inevitably, at this time of the year, the thoughts of those who love the truth, as it is clearly set forth by the Protestant Reformed churches, turn toward the origin of this denomination and focus themselves sharply upon those issues which have caused us to be taken by the scruff of the neck and […]

The Apostolic Fathers (1)

When the work God has prescribed for a certain saint is finished, God calls him home to glory. Thus the time soon comes when each one of the twelve Apostles is called home to glory. God has just so much work for each one to do, some more and some less, but each one a […]

Do You Read?

Not many of us are afflicted these days with “the terrible burden of having nothing to do.” On the contrary, our life is such a continual hustle and bustle that the general complaint of most everyone seems to be that time is pressing too hard; the burden of “must” leaves little opportunity for things we […]

To Our Boys In Service

Dear fellows:- It requires little imagination to surmise that the end of the war caused a momentous change in your daily life. This is true, of course, for those of you who already have returned to this country, some of whom have been discharged, others of whom are awaiting that event. They are, however, comparatively […]

Letters From Our Boys

Dear Editor: I have been in the Navy fourteen months now and have never written Beacon Lights so it is time for me to get a letter in. The Beacon Lights came quite regularly to me during the past season and I am looking forward to receiving them again during the following season. I enjoy […]

Ruminants

“The cattle on a thousand hills and all the forest beasts are mine”. All the creatures of the field are Jehovah’s. He hath created them and He sustains them. Interesting it is indeed, to study his marvelous handiwork and observe specific adaptions of the various specimens in the animal kingdom. Of all the animals He […]

Job

Bible Study Outlines IV Prologue (continued) Satan’s first attempt: (chp. 1:13-22) I.  The power Satan receives: 1. We believe all power is of God, the Almighty. Power is ability to perform. 2. However, we also believe that God gives power to creatures. He gives power to plants, animals, man, and devils. All these creatures have […]

We Must Have Our Own Amusement Center

A definite and highly dramatic closing sentence for a fine article. As the mother of five small children already seeking outside entertainment I add my plea for a place to pass leisure hours. Lois seems to have a good perspective on the whole situation. She realizes the need for control by proper authorities. I am […]
