Dr. Henry, Duality and Ethics

DR HENRY RESPONDS TO MR. ZYLSTRA Mr. Zylstra does me the honor of a serious and lengthy appraisal of my book, and I appreciate the fact that he has much to commend. Four lectures, appropriately designated Aspects of Christian Social Ethics, must necessarily leave gaps in the defining of positions, although I am persuaded that […]

Letters to an Old Friend…

Dear John: You want my views about the subject now under discussion in our beloved TORCH AND TRUMPET? I have tried to outline a few of them in this letter. Whether I have succeeded in sketching, so to say, my bargaining position in such a cramped space is a question you will have to answer. For […]

Letters to the Editors…

CREATION AND EVOLUTION Dear Editor: I probably lacked clarity in my attempt to communicate certain ideas about creation and evolution in my article in the January issue. For Rev. Rushdoony makes some grave charges in an answering letter in the April issue. Two of these charges are that I have not discussed the matter honestly […]

Dear Editors: In May-June issue of TORCH AND TRUMPET, Edwin H. Palmer writes in favor of the organization called Citizens for Educational Freedom.

THE READER WRITES: Arens Comments – Huissen Replies

Sirs; Rev. C. Huissen’s article– H. J. Kuiper—a personal tribute—disturbs me, especially these remarks: 1. “And those of us who were closely associated with him know how distressed he was when he had to see in the closing days of his life his church’s critical posture toward worldly amusements held up to ridicule in the Calvin […]

The Reader Writes: Disagrees with Prof. N. R. Van Til

MR. LEISTRA DISAGREES WITH PROFESSOR VAN TIL’S VIEWS ON POLITICAL LIBERALISM Mr. Van Til’s article, “Can a Theological Conservative Be a Political Liberal?” in the November TORCH AND TRUMPET is an extreme oversimplification of a very complex historical development.

The Reader Writes: Disagrees with Rev. J. Byker

629 So. 198th Seattle 88, Wash. Mr. John J. Byker’s article, “Something For Nothing” is one of the most skillful pieces of biased propaganda I have yet encountered. The author begins his article with the undeniable truism that “evil men” have used the desire to get something for nothing to gain power and he then proceeds through […]

DR. HERMAN H. GRAY CHALLENGES Dear Rev. Kuiper: May I write to you in regard to some statements of Rev. Peter De Jong in the Nov. 1960 TORCH AND TRUMPET regarding expenditure of money for foreign mission work (see p. I6)? I shall not discuss mission principles with Rev. De Jong. However, he is not a […]

The Reader Writes

Dear Editor: “Literate — for what?” under “Pointed Paragraphs in a recent issue of TORCH AND TRUMPET, is a question which we should ask—and answer with an avalanche of literature true to the Word of God. Mr. Van Til notes that the Communists are doing more than any other organized world-voice to supply the new armies […]
