The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, October 1918

First Term

First Term.

The two closing general meetings of the First Term were addressed by Rev. A. M. Johnson, M.A., and Mr. E. K. Lomas, M.A., M.Sc. Mr. Johnson took as his subject "The Message of the Bible to the People of To-day.' Dealing first with the matter of origins he traced the historical development of the Bible. The modern critical movements were referred to, and Mr. Johnson showed that these had only served to emphasise the fact that the Bible was in a special sense an inspired book possessing a very definite message to the people of to-day. Mr. Lomas spoke on "Christianity and Citizenship" and stressed the need for the application of Christian principles in every branch of civic life.
