Swinnock: Death a Poor Trade Amongst Saints

Swinnock: Death a Poor Trade Amongst Saints
1 Corinthians 15

Death among saints drives but a poor trade; it may destroy the body, and when that is done, it hath done all its feats; like a fierce mastiff whose teeth are broken out, it may bark and tear thy tattered coat, but cannot bite to the bone. This bee fastened her sting in Christ’s blessed body, and is ever since a drone to his members.
