“ We were never intended to have a simultaneous concern fo r all the countries in the world. We’re not big enough to carry the missionary concerns o f the entire world on our shoulders. Proof o f this is in your church. Only a small handful have any real interest in foreign mis sions.” It was suggested that a dif ferent approach to mission prayers and attention be taken, with Chris tians “ adopting” a country o f their own and then concentrating individ ually on its missionary problems, its successes and triumphs. Dr. Vernon Mortenson, general direc tor of The Evangelical Alliance Mis sion, has announced the move o f the home offices o f TEAM from Chicago to Wheaton, Illinois. The newly-oc cupied office building contains 20,- 000 feet o f floor space and accom modates 60 staff members. This al lows for further growth in the So ciety which now has 870 mission aries serving in twenty countries. A three-story 16-unit apartment build ing for missionaries on furlough and a 15-unit building fo r staff members have also been constructed as a part o f the headquarters complex located at 2500 North Main Street, P.O.

What is Doctrine ?
Q n e o f t h e tragic aspects o f much contemporary preaching to day is its total lack o f doctrinal preaching. It is small wonder that today many o f the wise and good church members are drop ping out o f the well-known denominational churches. Some go to other churches where they hear doctrinal preaching and alas, others find their way into the cults — those deviate systems o f religion. They make these changes not knowing fully what the church which they have left actually does believe, or what the sect to which they are going actually teaches. Becoming enamored with a personality, they go to hear him preach regardless o f what he presents. I f he is clever enough, his heterodox ideas will be delivered in such a manner that they will sound quite orthodox. Before the unwary individual realizes it, he becomes enmeshed in a false religion. These uninformed people are more to be pitied than condemned. It is the pastors o f the churches from which they have departed who should be condemned because they did not instruct their parishioners in the great doctrines o f the Word o f God, so that they might be thoroughly established in the truth, as it is found in the Bible. Unfortunately, the modern church speaks very lightly o f doctrine, as though it were something to be either ridiculed or avoided completely. It should be emphasized, however, that doc trine is absolutely essential to the proper understanding o f the Word o f God. It is absolutely essential also to one’s thinking about the great truths o f scripture. Doctrine has been defined correctly as simply orderly arrangement o f Bible truths. The Bible is not a book on doctrine, but it is filled with doctrinal truths. It is the responsibility o f the student o f the Word to discover these doctrinal truths for himself and to organize his own system o f belief, for doctrine is simply the stun total o f what one actually believes. Everyone has his doctrine concerning the person and work o f Jesus Christ. The modernist or liberal believes that Jesus Christ was merely a man; that He was not born o f the virgin Mary; THE KING'S BUSINESS

that He lived a good life here upon the earth; that He was cruci fied and died as a wonderful example o f what every man should do, if necessary, for the sake o f his ideals and beliefs. In other words, He died merely as a noble example; He was buried and His body remains dead even to this day; and it is the spirit o f Jesus or His influence that lingers on in the world. This is used in the same way in which we speak o f "the spirit o f ’76” — no more and no less. That is the liberal’s doctrine concerning the person and work o f Jesus Christ. The conservative, or Bible-believing Christian, on the other hand, also has his doctrine concerning the person and work o f Jesus Christ. Briefly it is this: that Christ was born o f the virgin Mary; He lived a sinless life; He went about declaring wonderful truths and performing mighty deeds which we call miracles. Finally, He was put to death on Calvary’s Cross as an atonement for sin; He died as our substitute so that we through faith in Him might not perish, but have everlasting life; He was buried; the third day He rose again from the dead, and He lives forevermore. That is the Bible-believing Christian’s doctrine concerning the person and work o f Jesus Christ. The modernist’s doctrine is not based upon the Word o f God at all, but upon the reasoning o f mere human beings. The liberal believes what is reasonable to him. What is not acceptable, or what he does not understand, he rejects, but he has his doctrine. We believe all the Bible teaches concerning the great truths that it contains . . . "the whole counsel o f God,” the full revela tion o f Himself. We have our doctrine o f God the Trinity (Fa ther, Son and Holy Spirit); the doctrine o f man, his origin, his fall and his future destiny through faith in Jesus Christ and the future destiny o f unregenerate man; the doctrine o f the inspira tion o f scripture; the doctrine o f Satan, angelology, and demon ology; the doctrine o f the church; the doctrine o f eschatology, or last things. When one puts all o f these doctrines together in an orderly arrangement, his system o f belief becomes what is known as a creed. To say that one is not interested in doctrine is simply to admit either that he refuses to think or that he is mentally in capable o f thinking logically on any subject. Someone has well said that doctrine is the root, the Christian life is the fruit. A person cannot live a life that is acceptable to God, unless he has the foundation in his thinking, for out o f these roots come the very issues o f life itself. Sometimes doctrinal teaching and doctrinal preaching can be rather dull and uninteresting, but it is up to the preacher or teacher to take these great truths and make them live in the minds o f their hearers, helping them to understand the extremely vital part that the doctrines play in one’s Christian life; in help ing them to understand that these truths which are found in the Word o f God are God-inspired, God-breathed, God-given; that they are eternally true and that men’s lives should be guided and governed by them to the glory o f God.

W ITCH KIND OF A MOTHER? T WO little BOYS were trying on Halloween masks at the grocery store. One suggested that the other be a witch as he held up a witch’s mask. The other boy looked at it and then matter-of-factly said, “ Oh no, it looks just like my mother! I don’t want to be a witch.” By now I was dying to see what “ mother” looked like, but as I peered around the counter, I was puzzled to find she was a pretty, blue-eyed blonde, petite and young. Standing behind her at the check-out counter, however, I discovered the boy was right; she did look like a witch. She yelled and threatened the boys, jerked their hands from the gum rack, shook their teeth loose twice, and looked so much like a witch I fully expected her to climb on her broom and fly away. On the way home, I thought of my own relationship to our children. When I brush Laurie’s hair, is it done in a rough, jerking manner? When I discipline Rick, is it out of love or impatience ? When I ask for something to be done, is it a request or an angry command? The young mother I had been watching was full o f her own tensions, griefs, irrita tions and the boys were bearing the brunt o f it. “ Do I look like a witch to my children?” I thought. Dr. Henry R. Brandt wrote in Six Talks on Family Living: “ It is per fectly normal for a little child who can sometimes get more comfort out o f his little teddy bear than he can get out of his tense, anxious mother. She holds him with her tense mus cles. She is sighing and fidgeting around as she holds her child. Some times it is a great relief to the child when his tense, anxious, unhappy mother lays him down so he can wrap his arms around his soft, warm, stable teddy bear.” What we say to our children is im portant, but how we act and even touch them, is equally important. Am I gentle or tense? Relaxed or anx ious? Certainly as a mother I need to go to the very center o f peace, the heart o f God, in prayer. Peter Mar shall once prayed, “ We are too Christian really to en joy sinning and too fond o f sinning really to enjoy Christianity. Most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is that we do not want to do it. Thy help is our only hope. Make us want to do what is right, and give us the ability to do it. In the name o f Christ our Lord, Amen.”

God longs to make us His instruments of comfort and encouragement, but He cannot until we are able to enter sym pathetically into the deep distress of oth ers. We Christians are often poor listeners. We need to cultivate the art of listening . . . not only to God, but to others. It is often so much easier to use our mouths than our ears. Because we know so little of real mental discipline, we find it extremely difficult to concentrate on the thoughts of others. God will give us discernment as we pray for a listening heart. He can keep us from doling out the same stock answers to everyone who knocks at our door. He can teach us when to advise, when to sym pathize, when to admonish, and when to keep perfectly still! God can use us most effectively as we allow Him to teach us to LISTEN with sensitive ears and a com passionate heart. by Ruth Calkin Young people are invited to send in questions to Mrs. Ruth Calkins.

F or m a n y y e a r s I have gone up and down America preach ing in hundreds of churches. I have been disturbed and dis tressed at a condition which most people do not seem to notice or else accept as normal. I have been in stiff services, a form, a facade of godliness without power. I have been in churches where with maximum efficiency they were meeting quotas and raising budg- tes but where I went out with a hungry heart. I have been in high-pressure gatherings where some peppy enthusiast worked like a cheer-leader at a ball game to create an evangelistic epilepsy and I went out exhausted. I have been in assemblies of extreme fundamentalists where a harsh and bitter spirit prevailed and I came out mad or sad but not glad. Now in all these meetings there were, no doubt, some dear souls who worshipped God in spirit and in truth, who meant what they sang, who hid the Word in their hearts, who rejoiced with joy un speakable and full of glory. But only once in a blue moon do I get into a church where in the service as a whole I feel that we are hav ing an experience instead o f a performance. I am almost fright ened at the way we sing the hymns of the faith utterly uncon
scious o f what we are singing. Recently I observed a congrega tion singing a hymn that was positively loaded with Gospel dy namite. I couldn’t help saying to myself, “ If these people knew what they were singing, they couldn’t possibly look like that. If it is not true in their experi ence, they should hang their heads in shame. If it is true, they should be shaking the rafters.” Again, I am disturbed at the way we hear the minister talk about the issues of eternity with less con cern than if he were discussing how to grow African violets. The unreality of it all leaves us feel ing that we have been to a show and, worse than that, we have been actors in a religious play and have come out none the bet ter but indeed all the worse, for if we hear these things and do them not we deceive ourselves. Our Lord used the figure of the play-actor in denouncing the false religionists of His day for that is what hypocrite means. Once in a while, however, I do find a gathering for which the brother was looking who said, “ I sure would like to get into one more good old Jesus meeting.” There is reverence but not for mality. The saints are neither in a stupor or a stew. They are not

THE KING'S BUSINESS
any preacher have to beseech such people to love and serve the Lord? Would such people sit silent in prayer meetings and hurry home to watch some TV clown? If they had what they profess, if they be lieved the hymns they sing, the Scriptures they recite, could they be content to enjoy such riches in a world of beggars ? Could they feast at the King’s table and throw a few scraps now and then to a world that has never heard the Good News? It has been said that no real revival will come untl Mr. Amen and Mr. Wet-eyes are in the con gregation. These two brethren have been absent from our con gregations for too long. Is not this sad state our lot today be cause we have left our first love and lost the joy of our salvation? The early church started with a little band of happy Christians eating their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. Nobody had to put on a drive to lure them to worship. They “ packed the pews” voluntarily. They wouldn’t have missed it for anything. They were a little colony o f heaven in a pagan world. The world could not understand such a fellowship. Ev ery time a revival breaks out, every time there is an outbreak of primitive Christianity, it fol lows that pattern. Later, the fire dies, the experience becomes a performance, the force becomes a farce. What is the secret of it? Not human enthusiasm, not organiza tion or mere loyalty to a party. Only the Holy Spirit can produce such Christians, such churches, such meetings. When we worship IN THE SPIRIT, when we sing IN THE SPIRIT, when men preach IN THE SPIRIT, when people have ears to hear what THE SPIRIT says, when we do not grieve nor quench THE SPIRIT, there the Acts of the Apostles comes alive again and first-century Christianity breaks out anew even in times like these. Some of us sure would like to find another “ good old Jesus meeting.”
primarily interested in filling out cards and tabulating statistics. Their creed is sound but there is enough meat on the skeleton that you see more than the bones. They are happy in the Lord, they love each other, they are pilgrims and strangers bound for a better country and they want others to join the band. They are not only right; they are radiant. They have not come to church to be amused but to stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Naza- rene. The Word of God is precious to them and they need no whirl ing dervish with a songbook beg ging them to whoop it up for the Lord. Such a meeting becomes in creasingly rare in the Laodicean Christianity of America, rich, in creased with goods and needing nothing. One may still find it in smaller sects or in little churches across the railroad tracks. It can be found on mission fields or be hind the Iron Curtain, where it still means something to be a Christian. When it doesn’t cost much it doesn’t mean much. Once in a while some great church man ages by the grace o f God to pre serve it and all who love either the frolic or the funeral type of meeting go somewhere else. What appalls me is that most people do not seem to know the difference between the perform ance and the experience, the sha dow and the substance, the unreal and the real. Too many have the idea that going to church, sing ing hymns, hearing the minister and going home is all there is to it. Spiritual truths are no more real than fairy tales and Santa Claus. How many have actually known the burden of sin’s guilt and the joy of deliverance? How many really know that they are children of God, bom again to live forever? How many have been so transformed that the old life is to the new as night to day? Could any company of people really have all that and sit as life lessly as we do in church on Sun day? Would any song leader have to beg such people to sing? Would

KB ENJOYED T he K ing ’ s B usiness is a fine maga zine. I believe it is even better with every issue. I start at the front and read right straight through, never skip ping about as I do in other magazines. I enjoy every page and paragraph to the fullest. May the Lord bless all of you who are responsible for this fine publication. Mrs. E. Weber, Caldwell, Idaho GOD-SEN D THE KING’S BUSINESS is literal ly a God-send. . . . I ponder spiritual problems, examine them from every angle, and pray for specific guidance before I step forward. Do you know that through THE KING’S BUSI NESS, Jesus has answered many of my prayers? Well, of course you didn’t until now, but truly, I am amazed at how God works. Suzy Sherman, Lafayette, Calif. COFFEE CUP Several times I have planned to send a note of appreciation for “ Over A Cup of Coffee.” It is so refreshing and the many “ little things” are so good. There are bits for the whole family, includ ing a recipe now and then. Thank you, also, for the excellent content of the whole magazine. Mrs. Burnice Holmes, Inglewood, Calif. PRAYER Many times I have read the little notice in THE KING’S BUSINESS, “ PRAYER” — We will pray for you and your need.” I believe that God hears and answers prayer, for I have proven His faithfulness many times as written in His Word. I have been in this land (Bogota, Colombia) 34 years, and I work among the poor. There are three stations and each has a native pastor and teacher. The Lord has blessed us with groups of Christians and their children are in school. After much prayer, it was possible to buy a lot; now we have started building. The foundations have been laid. I am asking you to please pray that the Lord will supply every need so we will not have to stop building. I am working alone with the natives, and I need your prayers. Eleanor Berchtold, Bogota, Colombia E ditor ’ s N ote : We encourage our lis teners to pray for this missionary in Colombia as well as for the other mis sionaries of the cross around the world who are holding high the banner of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The hearts of thousands of destitute Korean orphans are shattered by the crushing loss of their parents. They plead with Korean orphanage workers, “Why can’t I have an American ‘mommy’ and ‘daddy’?” They are hungry for Christian love and care—and an opportunity to become useful citizens. YOU CAN SAY, “ YES, I CARE!". . . by becoming a sponsor of a Korean child for $ 10 a month . . . only 30$ a day . . . a mere 10$ a meal. This modest investment in a life provides shelter, food, clothing, medical care and other necessities under the supervision of earnest Korean Christians. Hungry, homeless children—shivering in their rags—are con stantly being rounded up by police and brought to our orphanages. But, only as we can provide for those unsponsored children now in our Homes can we accept more orphans. You will get orphanage picture and history; life story, picture, and address of the orphan you select. You can write or send par cels as you wish. Replies are prompt, in English. Sponsors are t h r i l l e d with this personal contact. Many new sponsors are des perately needed. Won’t you do what your compassionate heart tells you and help NOW? Select your own orphan from those shown.

Write: M ERCY EDITORIAL (continued) There is much foggy thinking to day because fo r a generation we have been neglecting the teaching o f doc trinal truths. The attitude is that it doesn’t make much difference what man believes, as long as he is sin cere. But it makes all the difference in the world what a man believes. He must be sincere, but he must be sincerely right. Sincerity o f belief never saved a person. Hell will be inhabited by many individuals who were absolutely sincere in their be lief, but they were sincerely wrong. “ I am the way the truth and the life,” said our Lord Jesus Christ, “ no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” All the sincerity in the world will never save an individual unless he comes to God by the way o f the cross and through the Sav iour. We must preach and teach doc trine with a new emphasis, with a deep conviction, to the salvation of souls and the building up o f saints in our most holy faith. It is a mat ter o f life and death.

from the families. A thousand men to minister to means a thou sand family and personal prob lems. So here is another one. I motion to the lad to enter and take a seat, as I move over to sit on the side o f the bunk. Not much room in this stateroom converted to an office! The ship rolls vio lently and papers spew from the desk while the chair evasively slides a cross the desk. One should be adjusted to such con tinuous motion and be more care ful about loose gear. As we pick up the papers and close the desk, he says, “ Chap lain, I want to do what you asked me to do a few days ago.” Then it dawns on me. This boy was one of the 45 or so who had taken communion at today’s Protestant divine serv ice on the mess deck. I had ex plained the meaning of Christ’s sacrifice and how the communion should be not only a time of con templation of what Christ has done for us but also a time of dedication o f ourselves to be more like our Saviour. At our previous session this lad had told me that he had accepted Christ as his Saviour. It was then that I asked him about his purpose in life. That is when he seemed bothered. We should all be concerned about that question. Many live for wine, women and song. How do you get across to these that God has much more in store for Continued, on p. 37
C h a p l a i n , m a y I s e e y o u a m i n u t e ? ” I look up from my desk to see the sailor with an obviously con cerned expression on his face. Through my mind flashes the various problems a Chaplain may encounter with such an introduc tion. It could be that he is both ered by the fact that we are des tined for Viet Nam. It will be many months before we get back to the States. Perhaps he is even afraid that we might not get back. I remember talking with this lad before. There are about 280 men on a destroyer and when we have been out to sea for 22 days, a Chaplain has opportunity to talk with almost all of them, even to hearing the sordid stories of life punctuated with four-letter adjectives commonly used among Navy men. But this lad appears to be a fairly “ square” guy, probably about 19 years old. That is about the average age of all o f the men in the ships in my division. Many of these men have not graduated from high school. Some are just getting used to their first time away from home. Ship life really requires adjustment, for there is no privacy and very little space to call your own. There are those rightly concerned about leaving a pregnant girl friend back home; others are leaving a teen-aged bride. Then there are always the financial problems and the anxie ties o v e r extended separation
