Lots Choice

By Donald L. Norbie

There had been some strife between Abraham’s herdsmen and Lot’s herdsmen. Their flocks
and herds were growing and there was competition for pasture. Abraham generously told Lot
to choose the area where he wished to live; there was plenty of room for both of them and
their livestock.

The Cult of Intellectualism

by Keith Keyser

The following quote appeared in a recent discussion of dispensationalism by a well-known
Bible teacher: “Many of these men [i.e. early proponents of dispensationalism] were
self-taught in theology and were professionals in secular occupations. Darby and Scofield,
for example, were attorneys, and Larkin was a mechanical draftsman … Unfortunately some
of these early framers of dispensationalism were not as precise or discriminating as they
might have been had they had the benefit of a more complete theological education.

The Gracious Editorial Ministry of God

By Keith R. Keyser

When I was a college student, learning the fundamental principles of historical research and writing the need for editing in writing was stronger impressed upon me. One of my professors-who himself had authored several historical books and countless articles-maintained that even the best authors write numerous drafts. Many times I was grateful for conscientious proofreaders who made necessary corrections to my various research papers before the assignments were submitted to the merciless professors, waiting to “red line” the contents! Not only did such editing improve my writing and avert a bad grade, it also preserved me from the embarrassment of having mistakes recorded on file for years to come. Imagine the President of the United States delivering an inaugural address without having someone first correcting grammatical mistakes; the errors would permanently reflect on the chief executive. If editorial work is important in the educational, professional, and political worlds, how much more valuable it is in spiritual things.
