If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? A very important question asked by King David in the eleventh Psalm that makes it clear that the truths of scripture must be defended.
What is the basis of our faith – the foundation of what we believe? I believe that foundation can be found in the very first sentence of scripture upon which the entire Bible is based. Gen 1:1 “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth”
Today, that foundational truth is being challenged in an unprecedented manner. Theories of evolution limited only by the imaginations of mere men are eating away at the very foundation of our faith – the fact that “In the beginning God created” and if those foundational truths can be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Harvard College was established in 1635. It was named for its first benefactor, John Harvard, a young minister who left his library and a sizeable portion of his estate for the purpose of training Puritan ministers. Harvard’s early motto was “Truth for Christ and the Church.” It was stated that every student was to be plainly instructed that the main end of his life and studies was to know God and Jesus, which is eternal life. To lay Christ at the bottom as the only foundation of all sound learning and knowledge. THE ONLY FOUNDATION
Today, the foundation of learning at Harvard is far from the faith of Christ. They boast that the student body and its faculty come from a variety of religious backgrounds and the unproven theories of evolution are presented as fact. Universities once based upon the infallibility of scripture now place their faith in the wisdom of man.
Basically, evolutionary theory is a creation account directly opposed to the one we find in the Book of Genesis the book of beginnings – the FOUNDATION – upon which our faith is based. As Christianity compromises the truths of scripture, the uncompromising religion of evolution is hard at work attempting to destroy that foundation. By way of vague and rambling metaphysical philosophy, evolutionists insult our Creator while Christianity for the most part stands idly by – intimidated by the wisdom of the world.
What can the righteous do? We can and must stand for the truths in the Bible, the Torah – the Genesis account – that in the beginning – God created.
