Q.—My attention’ ha* jukif been'calIt?
ed to the Queitj^onijand,“Answers ■ yoai
are puj^shjng #,a n?d*]|have a,question
The wW-ld seaHis to be losing its dread
can we do about, it?
(D. S.) • / *\
Answer.-The fright,.that is Luppu;the'
world came frpm . ;tjbe| darii'^Ag^
eeboecUby all the creeds of orthodoxy,
bruedfc ia the hearts of'men distrust,
fe:ir;>*fitred of "God and Of j the Bible,'
which ia falsely accredited with.,being,
the fountain* from whfclr thesevbriicIA
ish waters of tradijdon represented by
the Creeds, have'been' dhnvu. ' It^is
time that every true .Christian vshould
tal.e his stand for the right,'the' Truth,
for the Word of'God, for the;qxpp$l
tiosi of the falsehoods1 which hiive siirii
■.h -ed tin? Almighty character, which
lane benumbed the/zeal^qf'the saints:
ami have repelled tbiT weary -and thu
heavy laden. It is .we.H.fthntrail such
hhoiiltl lift up their voice liite a trumpet
and give no uncertain-sounds to .-the
m isses of rhe grbVtiilng 'cfeatiom who
are awakening .and ..hungering ' and
thirsting for the* bread and wuter: of
life, which alone can satisfy, their
longings God says,*“I have n<fi given
yon the spirit of fear but, of love and
of a sound mfjid"f ,(l£Timothy 1:7);
“their fear toward:me; is uiught-by the
precepts of mep"(ls^iah 29:13). The
thing for us to' do. "if we would be
faithful to opr <£od..Js to .preach His
true cbarncter to those who still dread
Him. and help them, to. learn to love
Him and reverence Him instead.
Q.—How do 'ydu.’harm on i ze’jthe two
statements, “FlesK and lood cannot in-
herit the kingdom., of heay*n" (1 Cor-
inthians 15:50), and “All flesh shall see
the salvation of God"(Luk« 3:6)? (£.
L. H.) *
Answer.—If we' are to suppose that
there is but one phase to God’s king
dom. and that the ..heavenly phase,
these two texts, cannot be harmonized
God’s plau is broader than we at one
time realized'! S'lts many features may
be divided into' fwb'Vreat classes. In
one we would pi|t those'texts that re-
fer to the preparation of.aclass .who
will inherit heavenly rewards, for since.
Christ’s ministry an invitation to'this
great honor has been going forth The
earth also is intended to- be inhabited
(Isaiah -45:18), and in 'the second class
we would put alb texts .ttyit* refer.to
the providing.of worthy inhabitants
for it and the m’a.’k(hg ..or this .earth
suitable for their dwelling Apply the
dm of these texts to'the heavenly re
Ward and its meaning Ts-cieur. Reeog
nijjffee the second text us- referring tol
tlie restored earth, bur appreciation -of
God and His wondrous purposes Is
greatly enhanced I'Ali bumaiifty shall
have revealed ty the^j-God’s^salvation
as provided through-His'shn and' each
omk'vin have the opportunity to decide
fd$[tiniself as to whether he will uc
cept that salvation. Kvidcntly the
number saved will be a 'large one for
the Apostle Paul* says “I am ^nojt
ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for,it
is the power of God unto salvation'
(Romans 1:1(5) He evidently antic!
pared that salvation would reach .a
sufficiently large proportion of human
♦ty so that there wo.uld ADe no occa-
sion for being usbamed^oMthe^result^

Q.—WouId ’^o.u jpjease explain 2 Peter
3:10? “ButI they’d ay of the Lord win
come as a-thiefjilnHhe night; in which
the heaven*s h a I i j] P a 8 8 ,a'vay w, *
great norseT^andytho, element* shall melt
with fe rye tit heatVHhe earth a[*° a"d
the works--that'^r.5 * therein shall be
burned up." (K. T. K.)
Answer-The word day Is used to
indicate periods of time of various
lengths Christ’s Day was .three and
one-half years long. MosesVday' was-
one of forty-‘years'•'•’■.lehovuh s Judg
ment day, this same chapter tells us.
(2 Peter 3;8i, is .. to be one. thousand
years in length - It is to tills day That
this verse refers Unobserved^ and^ns
quietly as a tblef. the Judgment of the
Lord will come upon ;the Wbr’.d of .man
kind First reaching'the heavens, ot
ecclesiastical control an/1 .finding condl
tioas here- displeasing-.-- -to ‘the -.jireat
Judge, with confusion 'and noise* the
heavens will pass away ajid ^n^thc

The earth itself, huhian society organ
ized under the rules fit selfishness
will be drawn Into tbis\grent time of
burning .and be inbbid^/ln-the^generab
destruction „ When we studied our Bl
Iks more carelessly than at present.
'lip thought that this/meant * that ;the
Iip?rai earth was to'be’destroyed. We
could not see that the verse also says
that heaven Itself. Is to^, suffer ,tbe
som£ fate. If both were destroyed.
iere would be no place for God and
Lis holy ones to wait for the fulfil
mt of the 13th verse. .. The destruc -,
lion of the first heaven and the’' first
earth by a flood «2 Peter 3:0) affected
the ^jtiritual rulership and the society
of earth Just "as it was In the days
*f Noah so it shall be” when as a
thief in the night, the day of’tbe Lord
comes for a second destruction of the
existing conditions that?,the-new and
better order may, he established.
