The Age Old Question

By Rev. P.W. Philpott

A Christian missionary was presenting the claims of Christ and of Christianity in the Court of King Edward of Northumbria. A great number in that brilliantly lighted hall had never heard the gospel of grace before, and in the course of that address an old Earl arose in his place and asked this question: “Can this new religion throw any light on what takes place beyond the grave?” Probably he was thinking of a son recently slain in battle, or of some loved one who had just fallen asleep. Continuing he said, “The life of a man is like …

What Doth Hinder?

By Unknown (assumed to be Rev. P.W. Philpott)

Probably more Christians are praying today for a revival than at any other time in the history of the church, and yet no sign appears. Indeed, we have never known such indifference, such carelessness and absolute disregard for the claims of Christ as are manifested at the present time. How few are there who have any thought of God in their hearts! How few respond to the Gospel call! As we search our hearts and seek for an explanation of these conditions, there are some facts which face us and they speak plainly regarding the problem.

Our Yesterdays, Today And Tomorrow

By Rev. P.W. Philpott

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation. —Hebrews 2:3

Probably in all the languages spoken by men there is no word that signifies quite so much as the term “salvation.” When used in the Bible sense it includes in its meaning God’s gracious provision for man’s deepest need, and any provision that is adequate to the need of man must of necessity include his past, his present, his future,—his yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Even if a sinner was to decide to live right from the present his past must be reckoned with. That has …

Christianity: An Asset Or A Liability, Which?

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

Talking with a man a few days ago who was criticizing Christians or professing Christians and especially the church of Christ rather severely, I asked him this question: “Do you think that Christianity is an asset or a liability to a nation or to a city?”

What do you mean?”

I replied, “Do you think that the city of Chicago would be a better city to live in if there were no Christians here? Would you like to live here if all the churches were destroyed? Would this great country America be a better land if all Christians …
