Paul Axton lectures on the importance of the singular foundation through Niemöller and Bonhoeffer. Paul pictures Christ as the One foundation in I Cor. 3 and indicates even though we may build on this foundation our life may be a futility. The work of the Church at certain periods in history may come to nothing - this is illustrated in the life of Martin Niemöller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
