    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 […]

    A Deadly Delusion

    Christian Living    A. J. Pollock    English
    A Deadly Delusion I knew an old lady who was possessed at times by a firm belief that she was dead. It did not prevent her taking food and rest, nor did it interfere with the ordinary functions of life, so it occasioned no particular distress to her friends. Such a delusion is harmless. But […]

    “A Coffin in Egypt”

    Encouragement    A. J. Pollock    English
    “A Coffin in Egypt” These are the last four words in the Book of Genesis. “So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt” (Gen. 50:26). “A coffin in Egypt” seems a tragic anticlimax to the day when the haughty Pharaoh […]

    A Closing Testimony

    Encouragement    A. J. Pollock    English
    A Closing Testimony It is commonly thought that the gospel according to John was written later than any other book in the Bible. At any rate it was amongst the last. That being so, it may be looked upon as a closing testimony, and as such peculiarly full and precious. There are four gospels, but […]
