The Bible Vision, Vol. 1 : A Monthly Journal Reflecting the Light of the Bible on Us and Our Times; February, 1937 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Bible Vision, Vol. 1: A Monthly Journal Reflecting the Light of the Bible on Us and Our Times; February, 1937 Our generation is in a state of confusion. And certainly without the sure anchorage of our faith there are more than enough cross currents and winds of doctrine to produce instability.

Thank God for the foundation that standeth sure! We have not followed cunningly devised fables but we have a more sure word of prophecy. With Luther we can stand upon the immutable promise, For ever, 0 Lord, thy word is settled in heaven. But the rock of our faith becomes efficacious only as We place our feet squarely upon it. It must be the foundation for belief, for character, for life, for victory. It is God's will and provision that we withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. It is only then that we can lenda hand to others. So long as we ourselves are in doubt and confusion, without a certain grasp of truth, we can give little help to those who are ﬂounder ing all about us. Timothy was advised first to hold fast the form of sound words and to keep that good thing which was committed unto him. After that he was to commit it to others (ii Tim. 1: 13, 14.
