Text: "Other foundation can no man lay
than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
I. Cor. 3:11.
with our text we
wish to invite your
attention to the
parable of the
wise man and the
found in the clos
ing verses of the
seventh chapter of
men were builders.
Both had the same
purpose, that of rearing a house. Their
skill as workmen was not questioned.
But in the matter of foundation for
their buildings there was a striking
and vital difference. One built on the
rock, the other, thoughtlessly con
structed his house on the sand, prob
ably the most convenient and easiest
place to be had at the time. In fact,
1 have thought that perhaps the lum
ber for the house had to be brought
by boat, and was unloaded upon the
beach, and here, while the skies over
head were fair, and the waters in
front were placid and the sand lay
firm and smooth, he thoughtlessly and
foolishly built his house. The otffcr
man, at the cost of great labor and
time, carried his lumber up to the
rocky heights above the shore and
built his house there. And probably
the foolish man, who built upon the
sand, had his house completed and was
settling therein almost before the wise
man, who built upon the rock, had be
gun to get the frame of his house to
gether. And I imagine, in the very
start, when the vessel was unloading
the cargo of lumber that he tried to
get his friend to build with him on
the sand, and when he was unable to
prevail upon him so to do, he took to
bantering and ridiculing him, and
sought every means of discouraging
him. But the wise man knew the
value of a solid foundation, and in the
face of trial and discouragement and
hardship he built upon the rock. And
the sun shone and the gentle breezes
blew and the waters rippled, while the
bouse uton the rock and the house
upon the sand stood bravely up and
alike gave shelter and comfort to their
AS the days came and went the man in
the house on the sand seemed to be
as safe and comfortable and happy as the
man in the house on the rock. And the
man with his feet resting upon the rock
would talk with the man whose feet were
sinking In the sand, and he would con
tinue to warn him of the peril when the
storm should come, and would try to
persuade him to move his house to the
rock, but the foolish man would not be
lieve the time would come when the sun
would be hid behind the angry clouds
and the gentle breezes would be roused
to the fury of the gale driving the mad
waters mountain high upon the beach
And so the man continued to enjoy life
In the house upon the sand and to consid
er his friend upon the rock a very poor
weather prophet, indeed. But one night
the storm swept down upon those two
houses and upon that wise man and his
foolish friend. All through the long,
black hours the wind blew, the rain de
scended, the flood came and beat furious
ly. The wise man heard the storm, he felt
Its violence as it rushed and beat and
tore about his house, but never a fear
troubled his heart, for he knew the old
rock would stand, and with it the house
he had founded thereon. But he was
filled with dread for the fate of his friend
down upon the sand. The rolling waters
sucked the sand from underneath the
sills of the house, the wind wrenched and
tore at the creaking, falling timbers, and
great was the fall of that house which
was built upon the sand. The wise man
heard the crash of the walls, he heard
the groans and shrieks of the dying, but
he was powerless to help. The next morn
ing as he looked forth from his stanch
abode nestled safely upon the unshaken
rock he could see nothing but the glisten
ing sand where his friend's house had
rtood, and along the shore lay strewn
the shattered and splintered timbers that
once had proudly sheltered the foolish
man who had built upon the sand. The
sand as a foundation was insecure, un
stable. The rock was the only safe, en
THE foolish man is the man without a
foundation; he is the man whose
life rests upon nothing outside of himself
or apart from the things of time. And'
we cannot show him how to build a foun
dation, for as our text declares: "Other
foundation can no man lay than that is
laid, which is Jesus Christ." Men do try
to lay other foundations with such ma
terials as the world can provide, and they
exhatist human skill and learning and in
genuity In the task, but when they have
done their best and finished their task
they have nothing that will stand the
test of eternity, and a foundation which
Is worthy the name foundation must be
enduring, it must sustain the super
structure as long as the superstructure
vwill last. The soul of man lives on be
yond the grave, and if the life of that
soul is not resting on an enduring foun
dation It Is doomed to destruction be
yond the grave, even as the house which
was built upon the shifting, uncertain
tand. "Other foundation can no man lay
than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
Does man heap up the glittering, shining
gold and establish his soul thereon, and
delight himself in the fatness of this
world? It Is a foundation which, even
though it should endure through this
life, is unavailing In the life beyond the
grave. Riches have wings, and like the
shifting sands they vanish away.
OR is it worldly power or honor, social
distinction or political prestige, hu
man learning or wisdom or human good
ness or achievements? Are these the
foundations which man would lay for
himself? They are no foundations at
all, for they will not stand the test of
eternity. They will not endure as long

tion can no man lay than that Is laid
which is Jesus Christ." And so we are not
sent to tell you how to lay a foundation.
We are not going to try to show you how
you can improve the foundation you have
been trying to lay on which to establish
your soul, but we come to you In the
name of the eternal God of Heaven, and
point you to the only foundation, the
Rock Christ Jesus. The God who has
created you and placed within your
bosom that precious, undying soul, has
not left you to perish upon the shifting
sands of time, but has established a sure
Foundation, an enduring Foundation
and that Foundation is Christ. Upon
Him and Him alone the soul may rest in
peace and safety. As we sing in the old
Gospel hymn: "All other ground is sink
ingsand." And so the man whose life is
not founded on the Rock Christ Jesus Is
the man without a foundation; he is the

does not realize his peril does not
prove that his position is not unsafe.
ine man who a few years ago was
swept over the falls of Niagara, with
the careless laugh scarcely cold upon
his lips, while his friends on the bank
sought to warn him of his peril, was not
kept from going down to death in the
roaring, plunging waters, because he
did not realize his peril. And the man
without a foundation is in a position
of peril, of awful peril, and in danger
of plunging his soul into eternal ruin,
even though he does not realize it.
Ana tne ract that the man without a
foundation continues to prosper and
flourish in this life does not prove
that his position is not ona of peril
This is one of the mysteries of life
which troubles the Christian sometimes.
The man without a foundation seems
to have so much and to be go securely
established, and the Christian who has
a foundation has so little. This was
what troubled the Psalmist. He says:
"I was envious at the foolish, when I
saw the prosperity of the wicked."
Without foundation they seemed to
have so much and to endure. But when
he went into the presence of the Lord,
"then," says he, "I understood their
end. Surely Thou didst set them in
slippery places; Thou castest them
down to destruction." During the
time of fair skies and gentle winds the
house on the sand stood, but when the
storm came it fell. During the few
years of this life the man without a
foundation may seem to get along
pretty well, but when the storms of life
settle down, and death cuts the soul
off, then the awful lack of foundation
is realized. The man without a founda
tion is in terrible peril.
UT for this life, the man without
a foundation is unstable in all his
ways. The Psalmist in the first
Psalm sharply draws the contrast be
tween the man with a foundation and
the man without. The former is like
a tree planted deeply and firmly by
rivers of water, "that bringeth forth his
fruit in his season; his leaf also shall
not wither; and whatsoever he doeth
shall prosper." But the man without a
foundation is "like the chaff which the
wind driveth away." He is tossed
hither and thither. Inclination draws
this way to-day, and circumstances
and temptations drive that way to
morrow. There is no fixedness of pur
pose, because God is left out of the
reckoning. Human reason, human
judgments, human tendencies de
termine the life and conduct, and to
day the man stands in this position,
or holds this view,or adopts this pol
icy, engages in this enterprise, seeks
this avenue of pleasure or diversion,
and to-morrow has shifted to another
position, he holds other views, he has
adopted another policy, engaged in
other enterprise, or is rushing after
the latest pleasure and diversion which
the world in its infernal Ingenuity has
devised. The man without foundation
Not many weeks ago there came
moving through the streets of the sec
tion of the city where I reside a house
A house without a foundation. And
it was on the move. As I passed it
one evening with my little girl, she
suddenly exclaimed: "Why, papa,
there is someone living in it!" And
sure enough there was. A house with
out a .foundation sheltering its precious
human lives. And many a human life
without foundation is sheltering an
eternal soul. And it moves on. Here
to-day, there to-morrow, a perpetual
menace to the precious soul it shelters.
UT the .house which was moving
through the streets was being taken
as direct as possible to a foundation
which would support it and give it
permanency. Would that everyone
who hears or reads this message, who
is without foundation, might be led to
move upon the only Foundation,
Christ Jesus. God is not going to push
His Foundation under you and force
you to stand upon it. You must leave
your present position, and get over to
where Christ is. Repent! is God's mes
sage to you. The hard, unrepentant
heart does not realize the peril of the
sinking sand, but repentance opens
the eyes of the soul to its desperate
and lost condition in sin. God be
merciful to me, a sinner," must be the
cry. Repentance sincere and genuine
repentance is the condition of heart
which will break the fetters which
bind you to the present position on the
sand and will make you willing and
eager to get upon the sure Foundation
of Jesus Christ. And faith is the
cable which will draw you and plant
your feet upon the Rock. "Believe on
the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt
be saved!" And if your faith is small.
very small, you may come to Jesus as
did that father long, long years ago,
and cry: "Lord. I believe; help Thou
mine unbelief." Ah. how great is God's
mercy: it is able to reach to the depths
of the mire of 6ln, and place the feet
upon the Eternal Rock. Ah, how great
is God's patience as He waits for sinful
and lost man to turn from death to life
from darkness to light! He hears the
faintest cry. His hand is outstretched
DUT what does salvation through
L Christ mean? It means a new
heart and changed life. The old heart
has desires away from God. That is
the reason Jesus told Nicodemus that
he must be born again. But the new
heart which God creates for the be
liever in Christ has a new and larger
capacity for God. God's Word declares
that "if any man be in Christ (that is
if a man by repentance and faith has
become established upon Christ the
Foundation) he is a new creature; old
things are passed away; behold, all
things are become new." The old man
with its affections and lusts cannot be
come established- upon Christ the
Foundation. If the rich young man
could have come into the Kingdom of
God dragging his riches with him, he
would gladly have come. And if many
a soul, which is clinging to the old life
to its ambitions and its sins, could bring
all those unholy things with it, it would
quickly come. But the life established
upon Christ Jesus must be the cleansed
life. The new heart is the possession
of the wise man whose life rests upon
the sure Foundation. The foolish man
without foundation knows no such pos
session. The new heart is part of the
glorious transformation which God
brings to pass in the life when it turns
to the Rock Christ Jesus for salvation
and refuge. How appropriate it is that
upon the only sure Foundation God
places the man with a new heart. The
old heart is "deceitful above all things
and desperately wicked," but the new
heart which God creates is the center
of the Divine life which is planted there
and which God desires to have grow
until it has attained unto the fullness
of the stature of Christ. The Founda
tion for a purer and larger and better
life. This is the building which it is
God's purpose you shall place upon the
Foundation He has laid for you.
nTHIS means the changed life. God
I never intended the Christian to go
on living the old life of sin. The
Foundation is worthy of more honor
able superstructure. Right here is the
battleground of the Christian. The
man with Christ as his Foundation is
the man who has conflict. There must
be a striving to put oft the old man
and to put on the new. The changed
life is the superstructure which graces
and honors the Foundation, Christ. It
is the gold and silver of a pure and
holy life, it is the precious stones of
loving faithful service which the Chris
tian must build upon the Foundation
faui goes on to declare that every
man's work shall be made manifest;
for the day shall declare it, because it
shall be. revealed by fire; and the fire
shall try every man's work of what sort
it is." If it be gold and silver and pre
cious stones, it will abide, but if wood
or hay or stubble, it will suffer loss,
and the soul will be saved "so as by
fire." God intends every life which is
founded upon the Rock, Christ Jesus
shall be the changed life. Would you
dishonor Christ by clinging to the old
life, by seeking delight and satisfac
tion in the old paths and old in
dulgences? Oh, what a low fflane many
of us live upon. We claim Christ as
Saviour, but we do not live as though
we were saved. We call ourselves
Christian, but we cannot be distin
guished by our conduct from the chil
dren of the world. We claim safety on
the Foundation, but most of our time
is spent down on the sand with the
man without any foundation. No won
der reproach is brought upon the name
of Christ, and the people of the world
are but slowly brought to realize the
peril of no foundation.
""L OD calls the man in this life who
is without foundation foolish, but
when the day of grace has passed and
the soul passes on into eternity. He
calls him a lost man. Now, while the
day of grace brings salvation nigh.
He seeks to have the man on the sand
mount to the Rock. Before the storm
of God's wrath against sin breaks over
the soul it may leave the shifting sand
and find safety and security upon the
everlasting Rock, but when the dark
night settles down, it will be too late
Nothing then can save the man with
out foundation. The Foolish man has
become the lost man, and only eternity
will reveal all the horror and agony
and anguish of the soul lost in
its sin. The wise man who estab
lishes his life upon Christ the only
Foundationstands unmoved by the
rtorm and blackness of death, for he
is founded upon a Rock.
"Rock of Agcp, cleft for me.
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the b'.ood.
From Thy riven side which flow'd,
Be of sin the double cure;
Cleanse me from its guilt and povr'r.
"While I draw this fleeting breath,
AVhen my eyelids close in death.
When I soar to worlds unknown.
See Thee on TTiy judg-ment-throne; .
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,

Gentlemen and Silence.
It is good to prepare the thoughts In
gentleness and silence for consideration
of duty. Silence as well as gentleness
would seem beloved of God. For to the
human sense, and like the mighty mani
festation of a serene lesson, the skies
and the great spaces between the stars
are silent. Silent, too, for the most
part, is earth, save where gentle sounds
vary, the quiet of the country and the
fluctuating solitudes of the waters. Folly
and passion are rebuked before it; peace
loves it, and hearts are drawn together
by it, conscious of one service and of one
duty of sympathy. Violence is partial,
and transitory; gentleness alone is uni
versal and ever sure. , It was said of old,
under a partial law and with a limited in
tention, but with a spirit beyond the in
tention, which emanated from the God
given wisdom in the heart, that there
came a wind that rent the mountains and
broke the rocks in pieces, before the
Lord ; "but the Lord was not In the wind ;
and after the wind was an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake;
and after the earthquake a fire, but the
Lord was not in the fire; and after the
fire, a still small voice." Such is the God
given voice of conscience in the heart;

TRIED BY TIME.
Eugene E. Lario, of 751 Twentieth
Avenue, ticket seller in the Union Sta
tion, Denver, Col., says:
"You are at liberty to
repeat what I first stated
through our Denver pa
pers about Doan's Kidney
Pills in the summer of
1899, for I have had no
reason in the interim to
change my opinion of the
remedy. I said when first
interviewed that if I had
a friend and acquaintance
suffering from backache
or kidney trouble I would

ney Pills. I was subiect
to severe attacks of backache, always
aggravated if I sat long at a desk. It
struck me that if Doan's Kidney Tills
performed half what they promised
they might at least help. This induced
me to try the remedy. It absolutely
stopped the backache. I have never
had a pain or twinge since."
