1098 T HE K I N G ’ S B U S I N E S S when we take up our God-given tasks, when we bow our heads at the table, when we commit ourselves into His hands for sleep; as believers saved by His grace and kept by His power, as children of God with right and title unquestioned to all that belongs to God, heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ to the inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for us who are kept through the power of God, through faith, unto the salvation that is to be revealed in the last time; and despite the ominous clouds which overcast the sky and the in­ crease of crime and the forsaking of the faith by so many teachers and preachers; we can, by His grace, go on fighting the good fight of faith, with loyal hearts and love for all men, seeking to carry out His commission to give the Gospel to a lost world, and gladly give Him all the glory. —T.

As a matter of fact, how­ ever, the two organizations, “ The International Sunday School Council of Evangelical Denominations” and “ The Religious Education Association,” have no connection whatever. Furthermore, the International Sunday School Convention almost unanimously voted that the word “ Religious” in the name of the new organization should be changèd to “ Christian,” which will tend to remove any possibility of further misunderstanding. We are glad to make this correction and explanation. However, this will in no way interfere with the preparation of the new outline bf lessons for the use of those Sunday Schools in sympathy with the Fundamentalists. —T. C. H. THE PRE-MILLENNIAL PROHIBITION The last move of the enemies of the doctrine of our Lord’s Second Coming is the decision of the ecclesiasts that the doctrine is very dangerous and must be prohibited wherever possible.
