Description

Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 67: February 2, 1905 Shortly after this visit to the revival meeting, the Christian Age of January 18th, 1905, came to our table. In looking over this number, we found an article entitled, How to Enter the Kingdom, which, it stated, was a study of the International Lesson for January 29th, 1905. The text was from John iii: 1-15. As it is our business in these lands to preach the Gospel and show to the people how to enter the kingdom of heaven, the article was of special interest. From verses one to fifteen there were three columns of comments and explanations. It tells that Nicodemus came to Jesus by night - how he came, and for what purpose. The writer quotes verse one: There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the J ews then comments on the passage. Then verse two: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Verse three continues: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. These three verses with ex planations occupy a column in the journal. Then verse six is quoted: That which is born of the flesh is flesh, etc., and thus the commentator continues to the end of the lesson. Thinking that here again was something omitted, we turned to John iii and read the chapter. The bold headline in the Christian Age article was, How to Enter the Kingdom, but the writer seemed to stop at the threshold. He had explained that a man had to be born again to see the kingdom, and had there stopped. We had always found something more in that chapter, state ments by the Savior of vitally important ordinances that had to be performed before an entrance could be had into the kingdom. The writer had entirely omitted the fourth and fifth verses of the chapter. These verses are as follows. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
