Seekers Directed and Encouraged

THIS was a part of the direction which God gave by his servant to the captives in Babylon.

Jeremiah 29:13

Contention Ended and Grace Reigning

"Very often," says this divine, "there are in the congregation persons who are totally unacquainted with the great science of divinity.
