King's Business - 1938-10

Hail, the heav’n-born Prince of Peace! Hail, the Sun of Righteousnes; Light and life to all He brings, Ris’n with healing in His wrings. Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die, Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. : ; ' _ Charles Wesley

Official Organ of The Bible Institute of Los Angeles, Incorporated

t it i a s t !

. . . THE BOOK YOU HAVE BEEN HOPING FOR! "The Chosen People Question Box" A compilation, carefully and painstakingly made, of hundreds of questions and answers which appeared in the Question and A n sw er D epartm ent of THE CHOSEN PEOPLE over a period of more than forty years. The late Ex-rabbi Leopold Cohn, a humble Christian and a brilliant Hebrew scholar, in his handling of these questions, drew upon the vast knowledge of Talmudic lore in which he had been steeped by a lifetime of rabbinical studies. And he wove that knowledge into this fabric of Bible explanation and interpretation. Thus the book opens new vistas of Scripture truth, and throws the searchlight of Jewish Christian scholarship on many passages whose meanings are obscure to the average Chris­ tian mind. For the first time the Christian has access to rabbinical explana­ tions of difficult Scripture pas­ sages; but with this advantage, that these explanations are given by a Christian Jew, to whom the Old Testament types and symbols became complete only as they were unfolded and fulfilled in the New Testament. This is not a book which you will read and then set aside. You will treasure it as an invaluable book of reference, a storehouse of information, a priceless addition to your library. The pastor, the Bible students, the Sunday-school teacher, all will find this book in­ dispensable. A posthumous work of Dr. Leopold Cohn, something that will be a lasting memorial to his life and work. Beautifully bound in silver, with blue stamping; in­ dexed by subjects, and cross-in­ dexed by Scripture. Also a table of contents. 325 pages. Price $2.00 net, postpaid.

O , TO GO HOME! To go back to our Homeland!” This is the heart cry of world harassed Jewry. From Poland, Germany, Austria, Roumania, Is­ rael’s sons look wistfully to Palestine. They seek a place of refuge from an ever rising tide of Jew-hate the world over, and they think they will find it in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They know not that they are soon to face in Jerusalem the

takings in addition to a nation-wide and well integrated system of Gospel preaching here in America. W e do not believe the true child of God needs to be asked to fellowship in so impor­ tant a sector of His work and program. On the contrary, we are convinced the igno­ rance of God’s purposes for Israel is the only reason why any child of God does not help Jewish Mission work.

yet day, impregnate and saturate Israel with the message of salvation, before the night of darkness come upon us? Shall we be guilty of an abandoned fatalism? Shall we say, with specious philosophy, “It is all as God foretold, and so we shall do nothing about it”? So indeed might Pharaoh have said; but he found to his everlasting sorrow, that God had to be reckoned with. So might the Jew have said, when rejecting Christ 2,000

W e must understand that the only thing which inter­ ests God with regard to His people Israel, is, “W hat think y e o f Christ?" And the gathering of Israel to Palestine is for judgm ent. Going to Palestine will not save a single Jew. Going to the Lord Jesus Christ will! Shall we not therefore show our true love for the Jew by warning him now that his only way of escape, and salvation, will be through Christ? Shall he not have the same chance you have had, to turn now to the Lord for salvation? Then he as an individual Jew will no more be chiefly interest­ ed in an earthly Palestine. For he will have become a citizen of a better country, a city which hath founda­ tions, whose maker and builder is God—the Heav­ enly Jerusalem! And he will be one more of that Rem­ nant out of Israel, “according

There it will be that Israel shall acclaim with penitence and joy Him a g a i n s t W h o m t h e y ignorantly shouted 2,000 years ago, “W e will not have this man to rule over us!” Already the Arabs are in revolt, already they have served notice on Great Brit­ ain that all Jews must be barred from the Holy Land!

Jewish Victims of Nazi Hate years ago, "It is all prophesied, I can’t help it!" But the tragic record of two millen­ niums of dispersion and world agony teach a different moral. The American Board of Missions to the Jews provides an efficient channel through which the Gospel message may be heralded to Israel of the world dispersion. W e are in Jerusalem; we are in Poland; we are in France among the pathetic groups of Jewish refugees; and we have been forwarding financial sustenance to Jewish Christian brethren in hate-ridden Germany and in blasphemous Russia.

This is the incen­ tive and motive behind the Jewish Mission urge of the hour. * * * * * * * Use the coupon below, if the •Lord so leads you.

go?” Unless God intervenes speedily, by the supernatural appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ in the heavens, with power and glory, Israel literally faces extinction. On this point, that outstanding student of prophecy, Dr. Louis S. Bauman of Long Beach, wrote us recently these trenchant words:— “I believe that we are witnessing the birth pangs of a new age, and the new age will be the age of Israel’s glory. If there is anything under the stars that shine that I can do to ease to the slight­ est extent the pains that are coming upon Israel all over the world, God help me to yield myself to it.” And the consecration of this servant of God to a holy love for Israel is exactly the message of God for the true child of God in these days. The command is, “Comfort ye my people." And again the solemn instruc­ tion to the child of God is "Take no rest and give him no rest until he establish Jeru­ salem a praise in the earth.” Isaiah 62:7. God’s interests are centered in Israel. Where are yours? Shall we not, while it is

Introducing Institute Leaders

It is a noble group of God-honoring of­ ficials who have been, in the providence of the Lord, the leaders of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles since its inception more than a quarter of a century ago. In the present hour of unsurpassed opportunity, the Lord graciously has brought to the Institute two men of faith, courage, and complete de­ pendence upon Himself, to serve the Insti­ tute as its President and Vice-President, respectively. messages of comfort and fulfillment of prophecy being heard not only from the Los Angeles base, but also from radio sta­ tions in many other parts of the nation where he has been invited to speak. Dr. Talbot’s national prominence as a dynamic preacher and teacher is of great advantage in the Institute’s present task. It will evoke a new nation-wide interest in the great work of Biola, which interest is ex­ ceedingly necessary in these important days of reconstruction and advance. R oy L. Laurin To be Associate Pastor of the Church of the Open Door and Vice-President of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, Roy L. Laurin has been called from the flourish­ ing pastorate of the San Gabriel Union Church, San Gabriel, Calif., to enter upon his new duties January 1, 1939. For the past three years, Mr. Laurin has been identified with the Institute as a part- time member of the faculty. He has been in the councils of its leaders; he understands Institute problems, and he has a vision of the school’s greater usefulness. The new and closer affiliation with Dr. Talbot is the happy consummation of a fel­ lowship in service which has extended over a number of years. Mr. Laurin has assisted Dr. Talbot in his preaching and teaching ministry in the Church of the Open Door, in Bible conferences, and elsewhere. Mr. Laurin reluctantly leaves a fast- growing church in the metropolitan area of Los Angeles. Here he has served for nine years. He has seen the church grow into an institution of commanding influence in a rapidly developing area. A beautiful new

RESIDENT LOUIS T. TALBOT has been for seven years the beloved pastor of the Church of the Open Door, Los Angeles, where the church mem­ bership is now 2,700. In this pastorate his labors will continue. But Dr. Talbot now serves also as President of the Bible Insti­ tute of Los Angeles, having assumed office on October 1, 1938. By his combining of these two offices, he is able not only to ef­ fect marked economy for the Institute, but also to bind together the interests of the Church and the Institute—the sister institu­ tions that function with efficient harmony in one building for one purpose—the glory of God. Dr. Talbot is widely known because of his appealing pulpit ministry, and especially because of his practice of providing spirit­ ual food for boys and girls in connection with every Sunday morning service in his church. As a writer he is known through his books, O bjects That Talk and T each, God’s Plan o f th e A ges, T he G reat P ro p h ecies o f Daniel, T he R evelation o f Jesu s Christ, The M y stery o f S uffering, and a number of other volumes, as well as through his edi­ torials in T he K ing ’ s B usiness . His most recent publication, Bible Ques­ tions Explained, has been issued solely for the benefit of the Bible Institute of Los An­ geles, Dr. Talbot generously offering to care for the cost of publication and to fur­ nish copies free to persons who contribute one dollar or more to the work of the Insti­ tute. As a radio speaker, Dr. Talbot has estab­ lished himself as a welcome regular visitor (five week days and Sunday evenings), his

church building was constructed under his leadership, and although the structure was planned to accommodate increased attend­ ance, the church is filled to capacity at most of the regular services. B iola Conference Program It is the plan of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles and the Church of the Open Door to allow Dr. Talbot and Mr. Laurin to share their time in the conference field. They will conduct Bible conferences and campaigns in individual churches and for church groups throughout the nation. Present arrange­ ments call for a three-months’ conference tour for Dr. Talbot, beginning January 1, 1939, through the South and into the East. Following the' pastor's return to Los An­ geles, Mr. Laurin will make a west-coast conference tour. At the Church of the Open Door, Mr. Laurin is to share the administra­ tive and preaching responsibilities with Dr. Talbot, and to assume them when the latter is away on conference work. The cooperation of pastors and people throughout the country is earnestly solicited in order to make the Bible ministry of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles nation-wide in its scope and blessing. Below is Dr. Talbot's itinerary for the months of January and February. Persons living in the communities named are urged to make known to their friends the fact of Dr. Talbot’s coming. And on the part of all friends of Biola, prayer is most urgently re­ quested, that the Lord may sustain and direct His chosen ones for His own great glory.

Around the King's Table E D I T O R I A L

this blood-bought company will spend Christmas of 1939 in heaven. What ground have we for this belief? W e know that the church must be raptured before the man of sin, the coming dictator, can be revealed. Let us remember our Lord’s teaching that when tve see “these things”—these evi­ dences that are all about us in the world today—-we are to look up, for our redemp­ tion draweth nigh. Then will be ushered in the period of true righteousness and peace of which the Word of God clearly speaks, when all the world will acknowledge Christ as King, "God blessed for ever.” Let us so acknowledge Him now, in our hearts, this Christmastime. The Christmas Approach "And w hen th ey w er e co m e . . . th ey . . . w orship ed him: and . . . th ey p resen ted un­ to him g ifts” (Matt. 2:11). The approach to Christmas is far more important than the approach o f Christmas. W e become apprehensive about the ap­ proach o f Christmas lest we be found want­ ing in the amenities and proprieties of the gift season. Seldom do we become concern­ ed about the approach to Christmas. Yet it is this approach which gives Christmas its true importance to our lives and our day. The proper approach is not the economic approach nor the social one. These are too earth-bound and short-sighted. The true approach is the w orship one. It was the approach of the wise men. They saw . . . worshiped . . . and gave. How Christian- like and how Christmas-like! The first Christmas gift man ever made was to Christ. Every gift since then should reflect that first gift and be made in the same spirit. If we will be so minded this year, we may help to rescue Christmas from the stores and put it back into the manger where men "worship and give.” In all the lands of Christendom great will be the lament that on this Christmas, A.D. 1938, there is, as yet, no peace on earth. Many will be the pleas for peace. And yet, we venture to say that few will consider how peace can and will actually come. Peace will never come by treaties signed in solemn oath. It will never come through laws enacted in parliaments and congresses, and never through the armed might of dic­ tators. Nor will the socializing effect of Christian reforms ever bring peace. All of these efforts attack the problem from the Peace on Earth “On earth p e a ce” (Lk. 2:14).

L iberty and the Coming W o rld D ictator Very soon, carols in thousands of churches throughout the world will ring out in celebration of the coming of Jesus Christ to bring human liberty and good will to the world. But do these joyful messages ring true? Yes, they are gloriously true in in­ dividuals who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour, but these songs bear no assurance for the nations of the earth. More than seventy per cent of the 500,- 000,000 people who are living in Europe do not enjoy personal or political liberty this Christmas season. There is less human free­ dom on the Continent than before the World W ar—that war which was fought for the purpose, assertedly, of making the world safe for democracy—the war which ended a full twenty years ago. By conser­ vative estimate, the great majority of the population in the Old World either has failed to achieve liberty of thought, expres­ sion, and action, or has lost the right to that freedom. Of the 500,000,000 people in Europe, almost 400,000,000 may be said to be living under the regimes which do not represent the choice of popular will. Political liberty is still the heritage of the total of 117,000,000 persons found in Great Britain, France, Belgium, Denmark, Nor­ way, Holland, Sweden, Latvia, and Ireland. But 381,000,000 Europeans live in lands governed by dictators and consequently have no opportunity for true popular gov­ ernment. In this group of nations are found Germany, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Ru­ mania, Jugoslavia, Turkey, Russia, Greece, Hungary, and Italy. Russia with 159,000,- 000 souls, Germany with 78,000,000 and Italy with 40,000,000 loom large in this ar­ ray of totalitarian states. Think of a political situation such as this! Twenty years after a war that was fought to end war! And yet the picture is not surprising or discouraging to the student of Bible prophecy. The Word of God shows clearly that in the end of the days of the Gentiles, a coming dictator, the Anti­ christ, will rise in Europe. The present dic­ tators without doubt are but the lengthening shadows of that coming world dictator de­ scribed in Daniel 11 as the “willful king.” He it is who will impose his will, not in one nation only, but upon the whole world as well. He will be the devil’s man—the one to whom Satan will give his great authority. Brethren, we are surely in the last days. In but a little while, we shall see the King in His beauty and glory. Even if the church of Jesus Christ should spend Christmas of 1938 on earth, there is great likelihood that

circumference; whereas it is required that we begin at the center. These methods take the multitude in hand when they should begin with the man. Peace can never be in­ stitutionalized. It will come to the world when it comes to the individual. Even in the use of the individual approach, there is no prophetic hope that universal peace shall be individualized through missionary and evangelistic agencies, but only with the per­ sonal advent of Jesus Christ as the Prince of Peace. These estimates are often heard about churches and people. How tragic a condi­ tion of life! The tragedy lies in a correct faith but a wrong purpose. Persisted in, this passivity will amount to what has been called “a saved soul and a lost life.” The failure to u se the truth is in many respects its greatest abuse. One cannot overemphasize the import­ ance of being sound in the faith. Unless one is sound here at the center, he will be un­ sound in the most vital posts and outposts of life. The surest way to nullify truth and virtue is to entomb it in selfish indifference and a certain kind of private piety where it is never exposed except on Sunday morn­ ing. Being sound in faith involves two things, according to the Apostle Paul. First— "Sound d octrin e" (Titus 2:1). • Here faith is given form. It is made something definite and unfluctuating. Second—“Sound w ord s” (2 Tim. 1: 13). Here faith is given expression. It is lived out from the creed , being put into the conduct. In these days of religious chicanery we must hold to “sound words.” In the hands of the liberalist, the old words are filled with new meanings until “divinity” no longer means divine, and “inspiration” no longer means inspired.’ Let us rescue these words from the abuse of the day and invest them with their original meaning. It can be done not only by being sou n d in th e faith but also by sou n din g ou t th e faith through lip and life. The precedent was established by the church at Thessalonica of which Paul wrote these words, “For from you sou n ded ou t the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing” (1 Thess. 1:8). Sound “Sound—but sound asleep.” "Good—but good for nothing.”

Views and Reviews of Current News By D AN GILBERT San Diego, California, and Washington, D.C.

certain: If democracy becomes dictatorship to win a war, democracy loses. The idea is too absurd for serious consideration. A war to defend democracy, under this system, would mean the death of democracy. If de­ mocracy is going to die anyway, to give way to dictatorship, it might as well sur­ render without a struggle, without the war! Americans should write their representa­ tives in Congress, urging them to oppose any and all of the pending bills which would permit war to be used as a pretext for sweeping away the God-given, Consti­ tutional liberties which our fathers died to establish, not to destroy. WAR HORRORS MULTIPLY: The hor­ rors of the “next war” continue to strain the imaginations of men. A news report states that three European nations have now tak­ en to training the blind as "air raid war­ dens.” It is a known fact that blind persons develop excessively acute hearing. They become supersensitive to sound. The militarists believe this cultivated fac­ ulty of the blind can be exploited in war "defense.” The theory is that blind persons, by reason of their acute hearing, can “spot” or sense planes quicker than ordinary indi­ viduals can. Presumably, the helpless blind will be stationed on high buildings or in ex­ posed outlying districts where they will “stick by their posts,” relaying news of the approaching air raid, until they fall victims of it. SOVIETS RENEW ANTI-GOD DRIVE: Soviet school teachers were summoned to intensive antireligious work among chil­ dren in an authoritative article appearing in the current number of T he T eachers' Gazette, organ of the Commissariat of Edu­ cation. The article rebukes the Commis­ sariat itself for failing to push antireligious instruction. As a result of the teachers’ indifference, the article states, there has been a consider­ able upsurge of religious feeling among children. The discussion deplores the fact that last Christmas the children in many districts went about the houses of the col­ lective farms singing Christmas carols, that many children observed Easter by standing in the churches among the elders with can­ dles. The article demanded that all Soviet teachers concentrate and center their efforts upon a drive to convert school children into active fighters against religion. THE DEFICIT DEEPENS: Strong pres­ sure will be put upon the 1939 Congress to enact a program to subsidize medical care for the poor. At least six bills already have been drawn, providing for the appropria- [C ontinued on p a g e 436]

“inevitability” of our participation in the next war is becoming more and more widely accepted, and even approved, by many who are in a position to influence public opinion. WAR REGIMENTATION PROGRAM: For several years, plans have been carried forward in Washington, D.C., to have everything in readiness “just in case” America should be drawn into another world conflict. The program is now vir­ tually complete. The various bills now pending in Congress will doubtless be amended to provide that maximum of “war mobilization” conceived by military strate­ gists. The plan provides that the moment America goes to war, democracy shall be abolished. Free speech will be suppressed. Labor and capital, as well as youth, will be conscripted. Martial law will prevail at home as well as at the “front.” Workers in factories and farmers tilling their own fields will be under military discipline—sub­ ject to court-martialing for disobedience to the bureaucratic slave-drivers who will ty­ rannize over once free Americans. Once our United States goes to war, democracy is suspended and dictatorship takes over in our country. This action may, or may not, be neces­ sary to “win the war.” But, one thing is

WAR PREPARATION PROCEEDS IN AMERICA: A pell of Washington news­ paper men recently revealed that three out of live of them regard “war preparation” as the most immediate menace to “peace and freedom” in the United States of America. The menace lies not so much in demands for increased armaments; its chief threat lies in the subtle propaganda being spread on all sides—propaganda aiming to con­ vince Americans that a plunge into war would "serve the interests of democracy and the stabilization of peace.” And men today are not given generally to a careful weighing of statements which they are asked to believe. A recently returned ambassador to a great European nation has suggested pub­ licly that America “had better declare war on the three military machines before they gain too much momentum.” The three mili­ tary machines are Germany, Italy, and Ja­ pan; and the theory seems to be that Amer­ ica should lead other nations of the world in another “stop militarism” war. A state of public mind is being prepared which will accept war as a logical, and even desirable, eventuality. The past two years have witnessed, in high and low places, feverish and widespread “war talk.” The "peace of Munich" may have quiet­ ed “war hysteria” in Europe. It has fanned it to greater intensity in Washington. The
