“If The Foundations Are Destroyed…”

The Psalmist asks in Psalm 11:3, “If If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The foundations of our nation are under attack. Any honest person cannot disagree that the moral fabric of our society and the source of our law is based upon the Word of God.

How do you destroy a society based on the Bible? It’s simple, seek to discredit the Bible at its very core. “God didn’t create the heavens and the earth as the Genesis account declares. Instead, we are a product of random chance, natural selection and Darwinian evolution.” Once you convince a population to believe such things, you can win them over to a morality of your own choosing. If there is no objective standard of righteousness, “evolving beliefs” and personal preference win the day. God help us!

How would I destroy this country if i were the enemy? I would attack it at the very core on two major fronts: the authority of God’s Word and the primacy of the family.

1. The authority of the Bible- In many ways, the enemy has won the battle against the Bible. Whether the issue is creation, the exclusivity of Christ, homosexuality or abortion, it seems that he has convinced the masses that God’s Word is outdated and antiquated.

2. The primacy of the family- Once a society is convinced that God’s Word no longer matters, any moral degradation is possible and likely. Remove the foundation of biblical authority and “home” and “family” can be completely redefined according to social norms, political posturing and personal preference.

It might not be popular to say, but the first signs of the fracturing of the family began with the epidemic of divorce. If the enemy can convince a society, even professing believers, that divorce is no big deal, he has struck a damaging blow to the very core of the family – marriage.

From there, it is only a logical next step to redefine marriage. In fact, if God has no right to condemn divorce, He has a right to condemn same-sex marriage. Since the Bible no longer has any authority, God’s opinion on homosexual marriage is irrelevant.

Another clear evidence of this attack is abortion. When the Bible no longer matters and we believe we are the result of random chance, life is devalued to a simple “choice.” How has the enemy convinced us to destroy the next generation? By framing the debate around the rights of women instead of the rights of unborn children. It has become simply a matter of convenience.

The primary issue in our upcoming elections will not be economic, political, international, or social. It will be moral. The enemy wants to destroy our society by destroying the family. How? By murdering unborn children and destroying the foundation of marriage. “If the foundations are destroyed, what will the righteous do?”
