The Pulse Of The Preachers

Your position on the matter of colleges being supported from the church treasury is in complete harmony with the teaching of the New Testament. I wish to also commend the article by Brother John F. Wolf in the last issue of the Banner on George Pepperdine College. I attended the institution for four years, received my B. A. there and enrolled in the graduate school. In view of its modernism, liberalism, and worldly influence, I cannot commend it as a Christian college. It is time that the brotherhood at large should be informed on these matters. —Hoyt H. Houchen, Central Church of Christ, Los Angeles 6, Calif.

The last two issues of the Bible Banner have been 100 per-cent. The relationship of Church and college is certainly well defined.—O. S. Jaquith, M. D. Indianapolis, Indiana

You are entitled to know that I am enjoying the Bible Banner, and the thrill of reading it is much like making a foul play or two on the gridiron, then steal the ball, run over the coach, knock the breath out of the full back, make a touchdown, then kick the goal.

My foul play or two, is when I read something else; or anything else; then pick up the Banner, at which time the ball has had sleight-of-hand manipulation, down goes the coach; breathless lies the full back; the swiftest runner loses his head; and the first thing the "bystanders" know a touchdown is complete and the goal kicked into complete victory.

They have not passed; "They Shall Not pass!"—Warren E. Starnes, Gainesville, Texas

May I add my word of commendation to that of others in your noble fight against the present effort to tie the church to the schools. The position you and Brother Cled and others have stated in the Banner has always been my position. I thought this was Brother Hardeman's position and am much surprised at the stand he is now taking.

I am glad to see the Banner coming each month. —John H. Gerrard, Parkersburg, W. Va.

I have just finished reading your fine article in the Bible Banner of June, entitled, "The Gnat in the Cup," and I must write you and commend you for your stand on the question involved. I enjoyed the article very, very much and have been much profited by it.

I thank God that in our day there are those strong enough to make themselves heard and felt, in the maze of isms and schisms and "trends,"—men who are big enough and strong enough to "stand in the way" so to speak, of the evil trends of the day. —W. R. Peters, Florala, Alabama
