Christian Fathers

One of the goals of Christian fathers is to rear their children to the point of maturity, when he no longer is the controlling and ruling factor in their lives, but they control and rule their own lives through their own new man and the grace of God. In the book titled The Family by […]

AIDS and the “Magic” Example

Young people, I believe it’s time for us to take a hard look at what we assume is an acceptable behavior. The behavior I’m referring to is our looking up to and admiring the many and vari­ous pro athletes around the world today. After Magic Johnson announced that he had AIDS it seemed to stun […]

Vexing Our Righteous Souls

Does your conscience speak? Are you troubled if you live as the world? For one of God’s elect to live as the world is for sure a person who is disturbed and troubled. His life is like a spiritual schizophrenic; he is living two lives. His life is very difficult as he tries to remain […]

Prophets of Old and Today; A Comparison

Jimmy Baker, Jerry Falwell, Oral Roberts and Jimmy Swaggart’s recent capture of headlines, threatening to either die or expose something they hadn’t already exposed. National news coverage and editorials written weekly for the last six months. It is time now, I think, for us to comment and compare. The church today is known to the […]

Being Steward of Time

God created time for this creation and for the creature, namely man. Because God created an orderly creation and governs it with time, we are bound to work within the framework of time. All that we do, have done, or project to accomplish, is measured by time. The Lord started the clock of the universe […]

Dating in the Lord

As we consider this enjoyable and pleasant time of life, the first premise we must establish is an all-important and encompassing one. We must date only those who love the Lord. If through dating we find our mate we will be joined together in one faith, one hope, and one doctrine. We will have unity […]

A Study of Common Grace

I feel that as Protestant Reformed young people we need to delve into the doctrine of God’s grace and the doctrine of total depravity. We must be aware of how it is distorted by “common grace”. To do this, I am going to quote considerably from our Reformed fathers. Today, the Arminian view of common […]

Loving Your Wife for Christ’s Sake

The Critique article on “Loving Your Wife for Christ’s Sake” was very nice for the most part. Except the paragraph where the wife is referred to as the weaker vessel. As for wives not being able to handle stress as their husbands do or “too large a mental burden”, Hogwash! Time and again the Bible […]

The Importance of Attending Societies

As people of God, we know our calling is to serve the Lord with our hearts, souls, and minds. In order to serve God aright, we must know Him. How do we, as Christians, gain that knowledge? And what do we do with it? Implanted in all men is the conscious knowledge of God. All […]

Loving Your Wife for Christ’s Sake

In Colossians husbands are exhorted to love their wives and not to be bitter against them. My first reaction is, of course I’ll love her. Doesn’t it even strike you as an action that you can’t help but do. Especially if you are engaged now or newly married. You may say I have spent my […]

Resisting Temptation

Young people, let us address some of today’s temptations and how we can resist them. This world is so full of temptation for the believer that it is impossible not to see and feel them. The sad part is we expose ourselves to them. Yes, we often compromise our convictions and accept the world’s invita­tions. […]

Financial Responsibility Within the Covenant

What obligation do we have as young people to support our church and Chris­tian schools? Why would we want to support them? To answer these questions, let’s go to the Scripture and use what it has to say in regard to tithing and how to view our money. I Timothy 6:17, 18 “Charge them that […]

Making Confession of Faith

This article is written mainly for those who are considering making public con­fession of their faith. What is this faith that you are confessing? This faith is a sure knowledge of God, isn’t it? It is not an abstract knowledge not even similar to knowledge that is learned from schooling and the study of certain […]

Admonishing One Another for God’s Sake

Blessed young people shall we consider our duty of admonishing one another using Scripture as our guide? What does it exhort us to do? Paul exhorted the church of Thessalonica to admonish one another. II Thessalonians 3:13-15: “But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. And if any man obey not our word by […]

Fight the Good Fight of Faith

Oh, young people, you are assured of your faith, aren’t you? You know in your hearts and minds that you are a child of God. No one could persuade you otherwise. When you pray to God and repent for sins committed, your heart grieves, doesn’t it? And you pray that the Lord will forgive such […]
