Christianity Ultimate and Absolute Truth

A. K. H. Boyd, D. D. (1 Corinthians 3:11) For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1. What we know of the way of the world hitherto prepares us to believe that a great many things which are now serving their purpose will be superseded. (In communication, no one can say that the telegraph is the ultimate wonder. And in all the arts and conveniences of life, the case is so too.)

2. There is one thing, however, which will never be superseded.

The world has seen various religions; but the truth, as it is in Jesus, is absolute and ultimate truth.

We may have to learn, perhaps, that things which we think to be part of Christianity, are not, and to give them up as our fathers had.

But, in the face of all possibilities, we turn to the comfortable assurance in the text.

There is no "Christ that is to be": the One Christ has come (edit: Boyd says Once and for all, although we anticipate a second coming).
