Editorial: "We Still Believe"

... is the title of a brand-new book written by the president of our General Conference, Robert H. Pierson. It is refreshing to the soul to know that our world leader has no misgivings or questions regarding our basic doctrines. We place such a high estimate on this book that we are reviewing it in the editorial section. . .

 

Public Prayer

THE ACT of praying in public is quite an awesome responsibility. The fact that we actually are permitted to enter into the presence of God as we privately engage in prayer fills our hearts with gratitude. But to seek the Creator of the universe on behalf of an entire congregation such seems almost presumptuous for a human being to undertake. . .

THE AIR had a brilliant clarity that cold Friday morning last March as I stepped out of the house. I was still not feeling well after a week's siege with the flu and I shivered despite my heavy wool pants suit, coat and scarf. . .

Entropy

THIS ARTICLE attempts to remove some of the mystery about entropy and the second law of thermodynamics, so that the lay man may understand how this law legislates against evolution.

Shape Up to Wake Up

LIFE BEGINS with a single cell that, when fertilized, begins to divide and redivide. The chromatin in the cell is the substance of heredity. This is the material from which genes and chromosomes are made. Each chromosome contains thousands of genes that are systematically distributed within the chromosomes, each gene being a control element of a specific characteristic. . .

Why Nobody Came

THE AUDITORIUM was spotless and clean. Three hundred metal folding chairs were arranged in rows of twelve across the room. The speaker's stand was occupying its position of prominence and dignity at the center of the stage. The clock on the wall pointed to ten minutes of eight. . .

Nahum--When Cobwebs Become Cables

NEARLY TWO HUNDRED years after Jonah's spectacular revival campaign at Nineveh, the ax of judgment fell on the stiff neck of the rebellious Assyrians. The cob webs of evil habit finally became strong cables that bound them so firmly to wrongdoing that God could do no more for them. There fore, they were left to drain the cup of divine wrath. . .

A Wise Youth Ministry

"THERE IS a special work to be done for our young people by those bearing responsibilities in local churches throughout the conferences." --Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 77. What a tremendous challenge this presents before us all. The devil bids high for the souls of young people because if he can steal them away from the church he has destroyed a lifetime of service for Christ. . .

Society has demanded new systems of labeling of foods, drugs, clothing; in fact, almost everything one buys. Why? The answer lies in the anonymous marketing of almost everything.

What Does Adventist Architecture Say?

THE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH speaks. It speaks of the seventh day, Saturday, as the Sabbath. It speaks in its community by the open door of the church, the groups in the entry or court yard; it speaks through sound, color, and movement; it speaks when others are busy shopping, conducting business, or the like. . .

Evangelicals in Critical Discussion With WCC

IT IS A FACT of recent church history that the churches controlled by conservative evangelicals have generally not joined the World Council of Churches. This abstention is because they do not believe that the WCC legitimately represents the church's given unity in Christ. Furthermore, they have serious reservations regarding the deployment of the limited energies and means of the WCC and the churches it represents in dubious and, at times, divisive socio-political activities. . .
