The Preacher's Influence (June 1932)

Let Us Examine Ourselves (April 1933)

Words that Keep Men on their Feet (July 1934)

The Unity of the Church (June 1936)

The church is not simply a voluntary association of believers who are one in doctrine and faith for the mutual benefits to be derived from worship, praise, and prayer in communion one with the other; but it is composed of men and women who have been re­born, regenerated, recreated, and made into new creatures in Christ Jesus through faith and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.

Obey God Rather Than Man No. 2 (July 1935)

When a state or a government de­mands that its citizens recognize the state as supreme in matters of conscience, and that it be obeyed, regardless of the right or wrong of its demands, it usurps the place of God and be­comes an oppressive power.

One of the delusions of these last days is the varied sects that claim to have the Holy Spirit, but who deny the need for, and even the inspiration of, the Holy Scriptures.

The Holy Spirit Our Helper (October 1935)

We live in an hour when a multitude of interests and activities press upon our time and attention.

God's Method in Soul Winning (December 1935)

There are many inferior ways, but only one best way. Is it therefore surprising that in the greatest work in which human beings can engage, the work of winning souls for the kingdom of heaven, the method that will make success certain is plainly given in the Bible?

Here is a lesson worthy of thoughtful con­sideration by everyone who bears the name of Christ,—that his daily life, not for his own sake alone, but on account of all who love the Lord, shall be such that none who seek God will be put to shame by anything that he may do. This means that the Christian must guard everything that he says and does.
