IF the Foundations Are Destroyed - IF
October 14, 2017
It is a big IF.
I have heard the first part of this often quoted, but It is not an open ended question. It is answered in the next sentence.
The statement cries out for context and the context is given almost without a breath.
The fact is, the real foundations are not and never have been destroyed.
The foundations do not consist of our laws, constitution, corporate morality, cultural norms, or anything else over which we have power and authority. The real foundations are eternal and defined by God's presence in His holy temple, on His throne in Heaven.
If the foundations could be destroyed, there would be little the righteous could do.
Since they are intact, there is much we can do.
" if the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?”
The LORD is in his holy temple;
the LORD's throne is in heaven ..."
(Psalm 11:3-4 ESV)
