Editorial: The Privilege of Stewardship

Stewardship in the Christian church has an interesting history...

 

The Wonderful "Charis" of God

The important part played by grace in the plan of salvation is of itself a good reason for observing the significance of the word charis; and the many and varied ap­plications that are made of the term "grace" by Christians emphasize the need for a clear understanding of the deriva­tion of the word.

The Minister and Culture *

The minister is expected to be many things to many men. Among these many things, he is expected to be a person of good taste and an exponent of the humane and the beautiful. He must be this in spite of handicaps, not the least of which may have been an education that was vocational rather than liberal. And since leaving college he probably has had to contend with a crowded daily pro­gram.

Tithing in the New Testament

In the past, Seventh-day Adventists have been se­verely criticized for stressing the obligation of paying of tithe by their church mem­bers. This attitude, however, has more recently changed, and a number of other de­nominations or individual churches have accepted this system, which we call system­atic benevolence. We have to clarify the problem of whether paying of tithe is re­quired in the New Testament.

The New English Bible: A Preliminary Critique

The appearance of a major Bible translation is always of interest to the Chris­tian world. When that translation is re­leased simultaneously in a number of places in the world in an edition number­ing nearly one million copies, it is sure to capture its fair share of interest and con­troversy for some time to come. The New Testament section of The New English Bible (N.E.B.), published on March 14, gives every sign of fulfilling this prediction.

A Veteran in Active Retirement

Golden anniversaries are not uncommon, but when a pastor returns to his first church to speak at the fifty-first anniversary of its founding the observance would seem unique.

Our Forgotten Brothers

The person who has broken the law and has fallen into disgrace and shame in the community is still a child for whom Christ died. Only Christ can save him. He is our brother as well as is the saint in the church for whom we labor. May God roll upon us then a sense of obligation toward these "disinherited souls" who are increasing in such numbers all about us.

The Significance of Baptism

One of the fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, held in common with other conserva­tive Christian faiths, is that of baptism by immersion. Its institution as a Christian ordinance gave to baptism a far greater significance than it had ever possessed be­fore. This article seeks to consider some of the more significant points of which baptism is a fitting symbol.

The Bible Course and the Soul-winning Campaign

When someone speaks of a unique efficient method for evangelization in a speci­fied area the expression does not seem convincing. The ways and means to reach people with the gospel are manifold, just as varied as are the human personalities it is destined to reach. On the other hand, it can be proved that the combination of several methods is highly productive in a campaign, when the men who lead are willing to work in hu­mility and simplicity.

Youth Can Win Souls!

Any youth old enough to be baptized is old enough to win souls." This new slogan, adopted by the Mis­sionary Volunteer department of the Southwestern Union, is proving that our youth are able to assume responsibilities of church membership.

The Pastor and the Sabbath School

If the pastor were to de­pend entirely upon his own efforts to win souls, the task at times would seem almost hopeless. However, this is not the case in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Sabbath school is especially con­ducive to winning souls.

The Minister's Ally

In spite of the fact that the ministry is such a high calling, there are times when the preacher has the experience of pouring his heart out in a great sermon and then finding that he had aroused only a minimum of response in his listeners. Why is this?

Our Friends the Congregationalists: Discussions on the Contemporary Religions of America—No. 6

In the year 1931 the Con­gregational and the Christian churches discovered that while they had been separated for many years, they were identical in their ideals and principles. A merger of the two bodies was then brought about, with a for­ward look toward soon merging with the Evan­gelical and Reformed Church. We can well un­derstand why the Congregationalists have given strong leadership for the union of churches in both the National and World Council of Churches.

Candles in the Night—No. 3

The sixteenth-century Reformation became one of the greatest crises of the Christian church. Decisive issues were at stake, and some of the noblest examples of living the "newly re­vealed" doctrine of righteousness by faith were women associated with the leaders of the move­ment. Woman's candle shone the brighter in the gloom of those Reformation times!
