The Truth about “Christian Science”

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

The basis of “Christian Science” is the proposition that “God is everything and matter has no reality, but is an illusion of mortal mind. Sin, sickness and death have no reality, but are illusions of mortal mind. All evils such as plagues, tornadoes, cyclones, fires, earthquakes and accidents have no reality, but are illusions of mortal mind.”

God is defined as “The great I am, all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-loving, all-wise, and eternal principle, mind, soul, spirit, love, truth, life, substance, intelligence.” But these words are not intended to convey the idea that God is personal, for Mrs. Eddy …

The First Great Reunion in the History of The Moody Church

By Anonymous

The first great reunion in the history of The Moody Church was held from Sunday, October 25th to Sunday, November 1st, 1908. The thought was originally suggested by Elder J.M. Hitchcock. The committee selected to carry out the plan consisted of J.S. McGlashan, chairman; J.M. Hitchcock, G.F. Fisher, A.F. Gaylord, C.S. Kerfoot and E.Y. Woolley.

Eighteen sub-committees were appointed and preparations were immediately gotten under way to insure a successful gathering. Several hundred special invitations were sent out to former members and friends, to which there was a hearty response.

A beautifully illustrated program …

The Word of God

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”—Hebrews 4:12-13

The words of great men are treasures. We read books to find out what they said. We look into the papers and magazines to …

The Past of The Moody Church

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

Dr. Dixon prefaced his sermon by reading the following Articles of Faith from the constitution of the church:

  1. We believe in the only true God (John 17:3); the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19). Who created all things (Revelation 4:11) and upholds all things by the power (Hebrews 1:3), in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28). A God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he (Deuteronomy 32:4), and he shall judge the world (Psalm 9:8).
  2. We believe all Scripture is given by …

The Greatest Fact in the World

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

So great salvation.”—Hebrews 2:3

Salvation is the greatest fact in the universe of which we know:

1. Because it is salvation from the greatest evils.
2. Because it is salvation to the greatest good.
3. Because it is salvation through the greatest agencies.
4. Because it is salvation with the greatest people.
5. Because it is salvation for the greatest purpose.

I. The Greatest Evils.

They are three and each of them begins with the serpent letter “S”: Sin, sickness and suffering. Salvation from sin, from the results of sin, to be sure, but better still, salvation …

Our Foundation

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.—Hebrews 6:1-2

Foundational Principles

Last Sunday our subject was “Perfection” as defined in the Scriptures. Today we will consider the foundational principles which everyone must have before he can “go on to perfection.” Last Sunday it was the building; today it is the foundation which the building …

Melchizedek

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

Three verses of the 14th chapter of Genesis give all we know of the biography of Melchizedek who is declared by the writer to be greater than Abraham. This to the Jew meant that he was the greatest man that ever lived.

Some have contended with Jerome that Melchizedek was the Patriarch Shem famous and powerful in his old age. Others believe that he was an angel from heaven and others that he was the Holy Spirit. Some affirm that he was God incarnate, because they think that things are said of him which can apply only to God. A …

The Throne of Grace

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”—Hebrews 4:14-16

This Scripture brings us into the throne room of Grace in which are the crown jewels …

When Did the Stone Strike?

By Rev. W.J. Erdman, D.D.

Thou sawest till that a stone was cut without hands, which smote the image upon its feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them in pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken in pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that no place was found for them, and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole world.”—Daniel 2:34-35.

The Image is the symbol of the world-power in its whole …

Hallelujah

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

This word which is translated “Praise ye the Lord,” occurs, as I have counted, twenty-four times in the Book of Psalms, and four times in the nineteenth chapter of Revelation making twenty-eight times altogether in the Bible. In the Psalms it is the Hallelujah of earth and in Revelation it is the Hallelujah of heaven. It is a word which cannot be translated by one word in any other language, and is, therefore, transferred. It is the same in Greek, Latin, German, French, Italian, Dutch and English. It looks as if all nations were practicing for the Hallelujah chorus …
