Christ rather than Culture

Rev. James McFarland preached in the Hyde Park Presbyterian Church last evening (Sunday, February 25) from the text, John, 6:68: "Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life." He said in part:—

The Bible nowhere claims to be the foundation of Christianity. "Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Christ Jesus." Ye "are built on the foundation of the prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner-stone." He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."

It is on the authority of Christ that I believe the Bible. The world may ask how I know about Christ? The same as I know about Julius Cæsar, George Washington, or Queen Victoria. This is a matter of history, if you please. These things were not done in a corner. No matter what you may take away from me, Christ is still left. The Bible is an open country; Christ is the citadel of our faith. On Christ, the solid rock, we stand. "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." Many had followed Christ for the loaves and fishes. So they went back to their old lives. Those that would follow him must do it through love. Everything in this world may be taken from us, but there is one thing that will remain. That is love.
