    “Consider This!”

    Gospel    A. J. Pollock    English
    “Consider This!” Without controversy, Shakespeare is the most widely-known and popular poet of all time. A keen student of human nature, his observations are well worth close attention. It is most evident from his writings that he had a knowledge of the gospel, and was familiar with the letter of Scripture. For instance, the following […]

    Gospel    A. J. Pollock    English
    “Come,” or “Depart” For the last eighteen centuries the word on the lips of the blessed Saviour of men has been “come.” That word was first pronounced when He was here upon earth—“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

    An Unanswerable Argument

    Gospel    A. J. Pollock    English
    An Unanswerable Argument It was not an argument after all, though it was more effectual than the most carefully thought-out argument. George Graham impressed one in two ways—a child of nature and a child of grace. In appearance he looked as if he had been carved out of a rough block of freestone from his […]

    A Test

    Gospel    A. J. Pollock    English
    A Test Ask the dying, not the living, what they think of things. Not one of them has ever pronounced gold, or earthly honour, or this world’s pleasure of real value to them on a death bed. Nor do they testify to the wisdom of a life of sin, or putting off the question of […]

    A Tale From an Old Diary

    Gospel    A. J. Pollock    English
    A Tale From an Old Diary We have before us an old diary. It bears the date 1862. The ink is faded, the writing is delicately formed and the writer, a Christian lady, has long been dead. It was touching to read the tale it unfolded, a tale old yet new, for human hearts have […]
