The Good News is Pure Poetry

(stumpy) christ of the ozarks

Now I would remind you, brothers,
of the gospel I preached to you,
which you received, in which you stand,

By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly
to the word I preached to you. Otherwise,
you have believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance
what I also received: that Christ died for our sins
in accordance with the Scriptures,

And that he was buried,
and that he rose again the third day
in acordance with the Scriptures…

And if Christ has not been raised,
then our preaching is in vain
and your faith is in vain.
