Laughter

Laughter

This article was written by Rev. Dale Kuiper in the 11/15/1991 issue of the Standard Bearer. _______________ Not many times do the words laugh and laughter occur in the scriptures. We read of the laughter of the wicked, the laughter of the righteous, and, most striking of all, the laughter of God. As we consider this subject we ought to be reminded that we live in a world where comedy is king and where the insanity of unbelief is punctuated by forced humor, jokes, blasphemies, frivolousness, and inanities. How much...

Contentment

This 'A Word Fitly Spoken' article was written by Rev. Dale Kuiper in the January 1, 1991 issue of the Standard Bearer. _____________ The Christian virtue of contentment is expressed in scripture with a word that is, to say the least, surprising. Contentment is translated from a compound Greek word meaning “self” and “sufficient.” Literally it means “to be sufficient of one’s self, to possess enough to need no aid or support,” hence, “to be independent.” How surprising, in light of the fact that scripture on every page instructs...

We and Our Children

We and Our Children

"Although baptism is the main thought of all the author writes, this is also a book about the elect people of God, the Christian church in all ages. It is also about their children—hence, We and Our Children. In Reformed, Presbyterian, and Paedobaptist circles the two are—or should be—inseparably connected. In Baptistic circles no such connection exists. The author shows that the connection is provided by the doctrine of the covenant of grace, a truth which counters any idea of a...
