Editorial: World Stewardship Day

"ALL THINGS come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee" (1 Chron. 29:14). Not only is this a beautiful sentiment but it is true.

Peace on Earth?

WE ARE living at a time when many bow low before the throne of those seemingly magical words love and peace. Somehow these two words are used as if they were something new to be sought after, something the world has never desired before. . .

Malachi-the Message of "the Messenger"

THE BOOK of Nehemiah describes what was most likely the last great reformation among the people of Israel. As Nehemiah, with characteristic zeal, thought to purify the church from its wickedness, we are told that all Judah brought "the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries" (Neh. 13:12). . .

However, He also felt compassion for Thomas in his weakness, and showed him the evidence he had asked for (verses 26-29). . .

Grace for Obedience

THE FUNDAMENTAL doctrines of Scripture that guard against Satan's delusive last-day deceptions, including the standards that make the true Christian different from the worldling, are set forth in our Church Manual and appear on the certificates given to new converts at the time of their baptism.
