Shall We Attend Our Young Peoples Convention?

This question will surely be in the minds of many of us as the season for our annual Young Peoples’ Convention is again upon us. And for many of us this is rather a serious question. It means the arrangement of our vacations, perhaps laying-off from our work with its resultant loss of pay. It […]

Our Creeds

Last time, in writing on “The Author­ity of the Creeds” we attempted to point out that creeds receive their authority and have authority in the first place be­cause they are the expression of the Truth of Scripture. Then they have value and authority for us because they express the faith of the church of the […]

Authority of the Creeds

In our discussion of denominations and denominationalism we saw last time that there is not only room for creeds, which are an official statement of that which any given denomination believes, but also a need for them. Not simply, of course, as dead statements of the past, written perhaps in the back of our Psalters, […]

Denominationalism

One of the most widely attacked of all institutions today is that of denominationalism. This attack comes from two sides especially. On the one hand there are those who maintain that the church must be one and would sacrifice the very truths of the gospel to make it so. On the other hand are those […]

Mission Work

For some time now we have been listening in on the conversations which have taken place between Jack, a young Christian Reformed fellow, and his pal John, from the Protestant Reformed Church. Let’s do some more eavesdrop­ping, shall we? One day, while they were work­ing near each other, for they work­ed in the same factory, […]

Mission Work

“Yesterday we were sidetracked a little bit in our discussion of mission work”. John said by way of introduction the day following their last discussion. “And still after thinking the matter over a little I don’t know that we went so far off the track after all, for in order to properly understand love, Christian […]

Mission Work

As you no doubt recall, John, a member of the Protestant Reform­ed Church, and Jack, of the Chris­tian Reformed Church, had been discussing the correctness of the Protestant Reformed Churches do­ing mission work among the mem­bers of the Christian Reformed Church at Geheim. John had developed the idea that Jerusalem in the Missionary Com­mission of […]

Mission Work

As you probably remember from last month John and Jack were rather good friends even though John did belong to the Protestant Reformed Church. Jack had made some rather sharp and pointed comments on the mission activity of the Protestant Reformed Churches which John had, at the moment, been unable to answer. But after checking […]

Mission Work

John and Jack were rather good friends even though they did go to different churches. John be­longed to the Protestant Reformed Church and Jack to the Christian Reformed Church. And even tho they were good friends this quite often led to arguments. In fact, they often continued one argument from one noon-hour to the next. […]

Truth vs Error

Whenever we begin any new venture, it matters not what the field may be, it is well to ask the meaning and see the value of that which we are about to do. This is true especially in the field of re­ligious endeavour. No less true is this of that particular religious endeavour which occupies […]

John de Wycliffe

At this season of the year it is customary to commemorate the great Protestant Reformation when we celebrate Reformation Day. At such a time as this our thoughts naturally turn first of all to such great reformers as Luther and Calvin.  We must remember, however, that the Reformation was not a sudden, violent uprising against […]
