Christ the only foundation
Jump to navigation Jump to search
We can lay no other foundation than Jesus Christ (1cor3:11-15) and Paul I think interpreted that as that he preached Jesus where Jesus had not been named before (Rom 15:20).
1 Cor CHAP. III. 2 Milke is fit for children. 3 Strife and diuision, arguments of a fleshly minde. 7 Hee that planteth, and hee that watereth, is nothing. 9 The ministers are Gods fellowe workemen. 11 Christ the only foundation. 16 Men the temples of God, which 17 must bee kept holy. 19 The wisedome of this world is foolishnesse with God.
1 Cor 3:4 For while one saieth, I am of Paul, and another, I am of Apollo, are ye not carnall?
1 Cor 3 11 For other foundation can no man lay, then that is laide, which is Iesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build vpon this foundation, gold, siluer, preciousstones, wood, hay, stubble: 13 Euery mans worke shall be made manifest. For the day shall declare it, because it shall bee reuealed by fire, and the fire shall trie euery mans worke of what sort it is. 14 If any mans worke abide which he hath built thereupon, he shal receiue a reward. 15 If any mans worke shall bee burnt, he shall suffer losse: but he himselfe shall be saued: yet so, as by fire.
(Romans 15:20 [KJV]) Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:
Well I guess you shouldn't preach in church then.
