If the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

  • Can keep on being righteous
  • Can keep on teaching

The gospel has not lost its power.

  • The church has lost its fire. Brethren, let us rekindle the fire of love for God, the gospel and souls.
  • If heaven is not worth everything, it is not worth anything!
