GUEST EDITORIAL Your guest editorial about UNESCO of the United Nations was so important I cut it out of my magazine and sent it to my Congressman, with a letter to him. I would like to use at least four more copies of this editorial in like manner. Henry T. Littlejohn, Rainer, Oregon ARTICLES APPRECIATED I wish to express my appreciation to you for your editorial on Bible Translations in KING’S BUSINESS for September 1961. For some time I have been meaning to write, but kept putting it off. I do feel you could have made stronger indictments of the New English and R.S.V. besides a “ tragic fact” of much being left to be de sired and “ something of a very serious nature” being lost so far as majesty of expression is concerned. I am praying for you that you do not succumb to any pressures. Leslie Adkins, Philippine Islands Thank you for the informative and time ly article entitled “ Russian Nationalism, Friend or Foe?” by Dr. Dick Hillis. This is an interesting aspect of Communist tactics. Many of our political leaders during our early history were ministers of the Gospel. Their education and their knowledge of righteousness were valuable to our country and resulted in the forming of the princi ples of individual freedom. I hope that “ new patriotism” in our country referred to by Dr. Hillis will include Bible-believ- ing Christians and Bible-preaching minis ters who will make a stand for truth in politics and who will enter politics. Donald Wehner, Scottsdale, Arizona I have just finished reading your article on Moral Re-Armament in the January issue and would like to commend you for ihe clear presentation given this subject. On a few other occasions I have read sev eral articles in your magazine which have impressed me; so much so, that I would like to subscribe to your magazine in order not to miss out on future interesting fea tures. Miss B. L. Sarenchuk, Toronto, Ontario, Canada KB IMPROVING I think THE KING’S BUSINESS has made some real improvement the last few years. I especially like the detachable Bible studies. May the Lord continue to bless and use this magazine to His glory. The American people do not know how for tunate they are to have so many such periodicals. We need something like THE KING’S BUSINESS in Spanish! Glenn Juett, Aurora, Nebraska Your magazine is getting better and better every month, and it is always a de light to pass mine on to other people. In fact, the March issue was so interesting that I would like to have two more copies of it. Mrs. Jo Kesler, Fort Worth, Texas

PROBLEM WITH HUSBAND I greatly appreciate your new column, Vox Pop. While I do not agree with the various comments, they are interest ing. I am writing, however, with the thought that perhaps one of your readers would give me help on something I have been facing. My husband is a perfect gentleman, all smiles and sweetness, while we are around others, especially at church; but just wait until we are alone he is mean, ar rogant and refuses to give me money necessary for the run ning of our home. I do not be lieve. in divorce. We have talked about the situation and he still shows no im provement. His life is so filled with hypocrisy, I have not known which way to turn. I would like some practical suggestions. I know the Lord can work, and He has in my life. But beyond prayer, is there something which I cam do? If you use my letter, please do not give my name. Name withheld, Seattle, Washington. ANIMOSITY ON ANONYMITY Your Vox Pop column will not mean anything unless you require the names of those expressing their opinions.

Eight years ago, the Board o f Directors of BIOLA ! College started a developmental program designed to I meet the needs of the BIOLA students eight years I hence. The easiest thing would have been to remain | in the cramped downtown facilities which the school I was then occupying. The easiest thing would have I been to maintain the curriculum of that time. I Everyone could have settled back and enjoyed the I “ easy life.” But a God-given vision was presented to I the Board of Directors and the administration of the j school. It was as though a very definite command had I been issued to go forward. To follow out the command meant untold hours I of hard work, planning, frustrations, delays and prob- I lems. But there was only one course to follow— and S that was to go ahead. The vision was brought into I reality when, in September, 1959, the school was' | moved to its new 15-acre campus. Some facili- ! ties, such as dormitories and classrooms, were built | to accommodate the student body as anticipated in l 1960. It was the mind of the Board to build additional I dormitories and classroom facilities only as the needs | should actually arise. That time has arrived. In fact, | during this current school year, almost two hundred 1 and fifty students are presently living in the down- | town location and must be transported daily to and \ from the campus in six chartered buses. Of course, I it would be quite easy to say “No” to these young ‘ people when they seek admission to BIOLA. But when ■ a young person says that he has prayed about where ’ he should attend school and feels very definitely that \ the Lord is leading him to come here, we are convinced 1 it is a'dangerous thing, indeed, to deny him admission. : W e feel that our responsibility is staggering, and [ were it not for the fact that it is our deep conviction \ that this is the Lord’s work, and that a great host of interested friends are backing us up by prayer and ; gifts, we would be completely overwhelmed by this | responsibilty which is ours. The young people are coming and will, no doubt, I continue to come in ever-increasing and challenging j numbers. Here are a few statistics concerning the ‘ population situation in Southern California, given : m erely by way of an illustration. The 1960 census | lists the population of the Los Angeles metropolitan I area as 6,900,000. Conservative estimates base the } expected population of this area in 1980, to be at * least 12,000,000. In 1960, there were 1,400,000 youth f in grades 1 to 12, of which 73,000 became eligible for | college in 1962. It is estimated that almost 115,000 l will be eligible for college in the fall of 1963. This ■ is only one local area. Statistics of the same proportion ' are reported almost everywhere. If BIOLA is to serve I the outstanding Christian young people from these

areas, as we have endeavored to serve young people who sought ad mission in the past years, then we must prepare now not only to meet present needs but also to expand. To start preparations two or three years hence will be too late; we will have already lost ground. It is recognized that ultimately there will be a saturation point beyond which we cannot accommodate any more students. But w e do not be lieve for a moment that such a saturation point has been reached at this time. The world is caring for its own by providing outstanding secular educational facilities. Frequently we read of educationally-minded wealthy men who provide millions of dollars for secular educational in stitutions in order that they might train worthy young men and wom en. This is wonderful and we are not criticizing such gifts in the least. But that type of individual is not interested in making possible the training of Christian young people in the type of curriculum that we at BIOTA have to offer. W e must depend upon Christian people who believe as we believe and who want young people taught and trained in the Word of God and the things of the Lord, as well as related secular subjects, as we are prepared to train them. For this reason, BIOTA appeals to you to help ^ s in this great training pro gram which is offered here. This editorial is directed especial ly toward the needs of BIOTA at this particular time. The editor would like to add just this personal word. Many outstanding Christian colleges and Bible schools exist throughout the country, an appre ciable number of which advertise in the pages o f this magazine. From time to time they, too, have special drives which are aimed to improve their facilities and their training programs so that they may do a better job of preparing an ever-in creasing number o f young people seeking admission. Most assuredly w e would commend them also to our readers for special consideration at those times, so that this phase of the Lord’s work will in no wise be thwarted or handicapped but instead that adequate training might be provided for all Christian young people everywhere who are seeking the Lord’s highest and best.

Fill Up the Life of a Forlorn Child With Hope, Love, Purpose and Security In Korea it costs so little to provide shelter, food, clothing and all other necessities, including public school tuition. For only $8 a month -— just 26 pennies a day — the orphan you sponsor will receive loving care, Christian training and education. Above all, he will he taught from the Bible and be led to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Why not interest your Sunday School or another organization group, or invite a friend or relative to join you as a co-sponsor, only $4 each a month? The orphan you select will know you as sponsor. The child’s picture, life history, name and address and also the picture and story of the Orphanage will be mailed to you. Letters and pack ages which you may send establish warm personal contact with your orphan. Replies and acknowledgments are prompt and in English. Sponsors report that this relationship THRILLS and BLESSES, just as the Lord has greatly blessed the work of the ESEA. Hundreds of little ones in our Orphanages, rescued from tragedy, despair and abandonment, are hoping for a “ Daddy and Mommie” or “ Big Sister or Brother.” New sponsors are desperately needed. Help Save Abandoned Children Many desperate people, without work and physical necessi ties, are forced to abandon their children. Government authorities bring many of these children to our Homes. The following references to parents, taken from recent case histories of orphans, are illuminating: “ Parents unknown,” “ Father died, mother killed in a fall,” “Mother insane,” “ Father killed in action,” “ Frozen to death,” “ Committed suicide,” “ Killed by Communists,” etc. Read of These Two Pathetic Cases No. Z-4 above is Lee M i Hyun. Her father, a soldier, was killed in action. Her mother remarried and later died in childbirth. When the stepfather refused to care for her, she went to live with her poverty-stricken grandmother. A Christian evangelist brought her to our Orphanage when he found her begging from door to door. No. Z-5 is Kim Sung Chul. His father died of disease in 1958. The following year, destitute and starving, his mother hung herself. His grandmother cared for him for a short time, but, being in dire need herself, brought him to our Orphanage. Grasp this God-given opportunity to help train up a future Christian leader in Korea.

honoring GOD’S servant by Margaret Kreinbring “npHis is your life , Dr. Lowell -IL Wendt!” Those were words bringing pleasure and surprise to the pastor of Hope Union Church in Rose mead, California on Sunday evening, February 18, 1962. He had been chos en as the subject of the ninth annual “ This Is Your Life” presentation of the college department of Hope Union Church. In the course of the hour-and-thir- ty-minute program, attended by over 400, pictures projected on the large screen, telegrams, letters and testi monies of friends helped Mr, Wendt recall his tremendously successful past. Photography for the program was done expertly by Mr. Timothy Huerta, a member of the college de partment. Dr. James 0. Henry, asso ciate professor of history at Biola Col lege in J-,a Mirada and long-time Dr. Wendt (right) with Dr. Henry friend and colleague, presided as mas ter of ceremonies. Dr. Wendt’s moth er, Mrs. Emma Wendt of Van Nuys; brother Lauren and sister, Betty Lou Abel, came from a distance to be pres ent and together with Mrs. Lowell Wendt and the three Wendt children made the presentation even more memorable. Other notable guests were; life-long friend Wilbur Short; Reverend R. Eugene Crow, Pastor Wendt’s roommate at Biola College; Dr. and Mrs. Ernest Wiebe, repre sentatives of Radio Station H.C.J.B. in Quito, Ecuador; Sgt. Robert Ver non of the Los Angeles Police de partment and Mrs. Vernon; Dr. and Mrs. Don Hedrick of Whittier; and Dr. Samuel H. Sutherland, President of Biola College. The recognition service was con cluded with the Church’s presenting Dr. Wendt with a beautifully-bound Bible, inscribed to him, and a set of gold cuff links. Mrs. W e n d t received a gold, heart-shaped brooch in memory of the evening. In addi tion, Mr. Wendt was given an espe cially embossed and bound album of the program, complete with script, a small reward for a life so beneficial to others.

the world organization hopefully and optimistically called the United Nations. It is hailed as the last and only hope for abiding peace, and we are told emphatical ly that if it fails, the hope of the world is gone. Again and again we hear the statement, “ Our last hope for this world in this atomic age lies in the United Nations.” We do not question the sincerity and honesty and earnest ness of our diplomats, but we emphatically disagree that the final hope of the world for peace lies in the United Nations. The United Nations, like all the efforts of man, will not achieve its noble objectives, until the King of Kings brings in Everlasting Peace. Jesus Christ is the only hope of this world; and until He comes, all the efforts of man must fail to fully achieve the dream of the tower of Babel. The present efforts to guarantee “ one united world” follow exactly the pattern laid down in the building of the city and the tower of Babel. According to the Bible and from the precedent of history, it can only result in another political and re ligious Babel. We have but to go back to Genesis 11 for the answer. We repeat it here. After Nimrod’s at tempt to produce a one-world security by the building of a city (the political side of Babylon) and a tower (the religious side), God finally steps in to assert His au thority. In all these efforts of men, God is left out. Man dreams that by his own efforts he can attain his goal and bring in a man-made millennium and Utopia, and so we read in the account of the first attempt at a United Nations: “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. “ Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. “ So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city” (Gen. 11:6-8). This is God’s answer to man’s efforts to bring about the solution of the world’s problems. While man is seek ing this coveted goal, the Psalmist says God laughs at their feeble, futile efforts: “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision” (Psalm 2:4). “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion” (Psalm 2:6). The important word in this verse is “yet” . It means “ nevertheless” or “ in spite of” man’s efforts to save him self, God’s program will go through; and He will send the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Glory, the Lord Jesus Christ, and establish the Kingdom foretold by all the prophets and then the dream of man will find its ful fillment in the Kingdom of Christ on earth. This is the joyous prospect which lies before us, as we study the unmistakable signs of the times. Man has about reached the end of his efforts to bring in the “ peace on earth, good will to men” ; and before the threatened catastrophe strikes, the Lord of glory will appear and then He shall— “ Judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more” (Isaiah 2:4).
G o d h a s a long-range plan for this world, a plan con ceived in the council of eternity, which will be consummated in the end of the age in a world-wide kingdom of peace and righteousness. There lies in the future, according to numerous passages of Scripture, a golden age of peace and prosperity when wars shall be no more and all the nations will be united under one head and one government, speak one language, and dwell in peace and harmony upon this earth. This era of bless ing, the future hope of this war-torn world, will be ush ered in by the personal return of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Until He, the Prince of Peace, comes there will and can be no lasting and abiding peace. Man will continue frantically to try to form a United World Alliance to insure peace and universal prosperity, only to have his efforts end in failure and the greatest war in history, the battle of Armageddon. And then, just before man succeeds in annihilating himself in this atomic end battle of the ages, the Lord will return, judge the nations, fully restore Israel, and set up His glorious millennial reign upon the earth, “ And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord” (Zech. 14:9). This is God’s future United Nations government over all the earth. And not only will there be universal, inter national, political unity, but also religious unity; for verse 16 states that all nations: “ . . . shall even go up from year to year to wor ship the King, the Lord of hosts” (Zech. 14:16). Genesis 11:1-4 is the first organized attempt ot man to establish a united kingdom and a united, universal world religion. It was a human scheme in opposition to God’s plan. This grandiose scheme for a one-world government and a one-world religion was conceived in the mind of a man, Nimrod, the first clear shadow and type of the superman of the end time, the Man of Sin, the Anti christ, who just before the return of Christ to set up His kingdom will succeed for a brief period in bringing about a union of all nations and a mock millennium of peace. This last effort at a truly United World will follow the pattern of this first attempt of Nimrod in the building of Babel. The irrepressible dream and yearning of the heart of man, since sin entered the world, has been for a United World of peace and prosperity, when war shall be no. more and all the world shall be at .rest, in a state of social and economic equality and religious unity. The first great organized attempt was in the building of the city of Ba'bel by Nimrod in Genesis 11. It was a union of church and state, a political city and a religious tower of Babel. Although this dream was frustrated by the in tervention of the Lord, the dream has never died, being revived again and again in the attempts of the great empires of history,—Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Hitler’s Germany, and modem Russia. Today this unsatisfied yearning has been revived after the disastrous experience of three great wars in one generation, and now the terrible threat of atomic destruction exists. Russia dreams of a superstate and world domination under the ideological dream of uni versal communism. The same undying, overpowering de sire for a one-world of peace, security, and prosperity finds its expression in the effort to establish a United Nations organization to insure peace. After all the efforts of the nations of history have failed, and the League of Nations organization to insure peace. After all the efforts
KING’S BUSINESS CHRISTIAN HOME fEATURE
N ow t h e r e f o r e fear the Lord, and serve him in sin cerity and in truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:14-15). The title of this message is expressed in the language of children who frequently refer to their parents in this manner. There is no desire on the part of the writer to be disrespectful in the use of these familiar terms, nor to pose as being funny. These abbreviated words refer to parents in the tender relationships of family life and are readily understood by all of us. While “Mom” and “ Dad” are very common words, yet they immediately bring before us the tremendous fact of parenthood. The subject before us is one of great and grave im portance. Though I am a father and our five children have been singularly blessed with a consecrated and
life. We believe Billy Sunday was right when he said, “ the wave of lawlessness which has been sweeping our land is largely due to the lack of control in the home. Outlawism is not settled by the street mob; it’s a question of obedience in the home.” We confront signs everywhere which say “ Safety First” but in this tragic hour we could well change them to read, “ Home First.” Who will deny that the mother of Moses did more for the world than the king who built the Pyramids of Egypt or an Alexander who conquered nations? As we face this subject, let us give consideration to what we choose to call Parental Deliberations Parents need to sit down and engage themselves in a frank discussion of their task. Their duties need to be examined in the light of divine revelation. The Bible has much to say about fathers and mothers and also about the rearing of children. Home life is not neglected on the pages of the sacred Guide Book. God would not be so cruel as to call upon parents to rear children for His glory without teaching them how to do it and also
providing the necessary wisdom for it. Our dawdling delinquency as parents is due to our dull perception of divine revelation. The father needs to take stock of himself, and like David of old, stop and think on his way. Fatherhood must be the greatest thing in the world since God reveajs Himself in this highest and most sacred of all relation ships. God has manifested Himself as supreme, as the Creator of all things, but the best of all is the revelation of Himself as Father, and as such He is the source and imparter of life. A hush of silence sweeps over us as we breathe the word “mother.” Christianity exalts motherhood as no other religion in the history of the world. In His incar nation our Lord entered our humanity through the portals of a woman’s life and thus in a special sense sanctified motherhood. To be a mother is to hold the reins of a nation. A mother’s hand is mightier than a king’s scepter and this being true every mother is called to utmost consideration of her high office. God’s Word calls upon us to redeem the time because the days are evil. We believe there is no better way to redeem it and to make it count for most than to spend some of it meditating upon the duties which belong to parenthood. To slight the office by neglect is to bring children into the world with the gravest of handicaps, when they are entitled to the best possible advantages.
devoted mother, I do not profess to know all the answers to the perplexing problems which confront parents. I do know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that whatever destroys the unity of a home is ruinous to church and state alike. The only One who has all the answers involv ing home life is One who Himself never had a home of His own. And He, who never had a wife in the flesh nor any children, is the only One who can give the cor rect advice as to parenthood and to the rearing of a family. I know full well that the One who has called upon parents to build a home according to the will of God is the One who will provide the material necessary for such a home. I am confident that the reason so many homes go on the rocks is that they are not built upon the Rock. Parental neglect of spiritual training is one of the great est causes of juvenile delinquency which is plaguing our country at this hour. The reason so many children are growing up with a satanic scale of values is that we have not assumed the responsibilities of parenthood with more of a desire to glorify God. While we point the finger of blame in the direction of the school because God has been ruled out of modern education, and we lift our voices against the church because in many instances it has failed in the substitution of a humanistic philosophy for the Divine, yet the principal cause of moral failure among our youth harks back to the breakdown of home

self sets the example and reveals the nature of discipline. The Apostle Paul wrote, “ Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth” (Eph. 6:1-3). To deprive children of that discipline which will bring them to the place of obedience is to do them irreparable harm for time and eternity. Some one has well said, “ If more of our boys wore stripes while children, fewer of them would be wearing stripes after they got to be men.” Theodore Roosevelt once said, “ If you are going to do anything permanent for the average man, you must begin before he is a man. The chance of success lies with working with the boy and not the man.” A boy was asked why a certain tree in the garden was crooked. He replied by saying, “ I suppose somebody must have stepped on it when it was a little fellow.” We are not to hamper nor pamper our children, but we are to deal wisely with them, and when necessary, discipline them for their own good as well as for the glory of the One who entrusted them to us. All of us as parents need to give heed to Parental Demeanor Paul’s injunction to Timothy in I Tim. 4:12 applies just as much to parents as it did to the young preachers of the Gospel. Paul wrote, “ But be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” We must never get away from the fact that our children will talk as we talk, they will walk where we walk, and they will act as we do. “Mom and Dad did it” is an excuse often upon the lips of children, and if not expressed audibly, it remains in their thoughts. Knowing the power of example our Saviour said to His disciples, “ For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you” (John 13:15). By washing the feet of His disciples, the Lord Jesus was showing them how they should be willing to humble themselves and to take the place of servants. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him” (John 13:16). Lastly, I wish to have each one regard with utmost concern Parental Devotion God calls upon every parent to provide a home for his child. The Scriptures say, “ Behold the third time I am ready to come to you and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children” (II Cor. 12:14). Just as the risen Saviour has gone to prepare a home for His children, so all of us should seek to provide the right kind of a home for ours. All of us need to stop and to consider the unconscious influences at work either for or against the home. A little Scripture motto which hung on the wall of the kitchen in my boyhood home made a profound impression upon me. It was a simple statement ornamented with little blue forget-me-not flowers and framed in gold. It was taken from John’s epistle, “ God is love.” If, as a child, I repeated that text once it must have been hundreds of times. A wise and godly mother placed it there not merely as a decoration on the wall, but as a testimony for the spiritual well-being of her brood. It is a grave responsibility to be a Mom or Dad. It is a wonderful privilege, too; and it will be a most blessed experience for the parents who, with Joshua, say, “ as for me and' my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Parental Diligence God has not left parents in the dark as to that which must diligently concern every one of us. Possibly the reason we have on our hands an unruly, an unsettled, and an ungodly generation is that we have been loathe to do what God has commanded us to do. We read, “ And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deut. 6:6-7). The pity is that we give greater diligence to a hundred nonessentials and neglect the most important of all, namely, the Word of God. Through His servant Moses, God was laying down the method by which children were to be reared. Solomon wrote, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6). There is nothing said about training up a child in the wisdom of this world, but rather in the wisdom of God which reveals “ the way he should go.” There are undoubtedly millions of homes in this nation which do not possess a Bible, and on the other hand there are millions of homes which possess the Bible but never read it or teach it to the oncoming genera tion. The New Testament is equally clear concerning our diligence in relation to those whom God has put into our hands. Paul wrote, “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4). This is not the task of a day. It is line upon line, precept upon precept, day by day, and hour by hour. Every sensible parent realizes it takes time and patience to comply with these divinely-given instructions, but our diligence will be well rewarded in the end. Next, as parents we need to give serious thought to the matter of Parental Discipline Some one asked a farmer how he was able to produce such beautiful sheep. His reply was a classic for parents: “ I take care of the lambs.” Taking care of lambs involves more than merely feeding them day by day. Every shep herd realizes that certain disciplinary processes need to be pursued if his lambs are to become the kind of sheep he desires. The problem of discipline is a difficult one and calls for careful and prayerful consideration and especially so in the light of God’s Word. I know full well that the methods of child-training have undergone many radical changes within the past few years. The method of self- determination has been substituted for the old and out moded method prescribed by Solomon. The modem theory is that a child should not be restricted nor restrained, but must be allowed to do his own choosing. Corporal punishment has been ruled out likewise and is looked upon as a relic of the dark ages. God said, “ Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying” (Prov. 19:18). The chastening of children on the part of their parents must be the correct method of dealing with them since it is the method pursued by our heavenly Father for the well-being of His children. “ . . . My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Heb. 12:5-8). God Him
