PostSubject: Foundational Christianity   Sun Feb 05, 2012 4:01 pm

1 Corinthians 3.11 states,
  • 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 2.19-22 states,
  • 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
    21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
    22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

These passages of Scripture establishes that the foundation of Christianity is Jesus Christ. We first have a prohibition of laying another foundation. Then we have an expanded description of the foundation as being the apostles and the prophets, and Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone. And you know, without the cornerstone of the foundation it collapses. Notice in the Ephesians passage the exalted position Jesus Christ is given in the foundation, in whom we are built together and fitly framed together. Nowhere is that stated about the apostles and prophets. We are built on the foundation of Christ and Christ alone, for even the apostles and the prophets are supported by the chief cornerstone, which is Christ.

In this world of ours there are many foundations other than Christ, and many buildings built on other foundations than Christ. The foundation of Christianity is not John Calvin, or the Pope, nor Peter whom the Catholic church claims to be the first Pope. Any building built on those foundations is not Christianity. There is a plethora of denominations that are built on foundations other than Christ. This is not Christianity.

Religion based on a foundation other than Christ allows man to what they want. To create holidays, establish rules, regulations and set standards not found in Scripture. To claim this a sin and that a sin without any Scriptural backing. At the same time, ignoring what Scripture teaches that we should or should not do. Such is the condition of religion in America. There are very few buildings today that are built upon the foundation of Christ.

Just as the United States needs to get back to foundational governance, the church must get back to foundational Christianity built upon the foundation of Christ. And until the American church repents and turns from it's wicked ways, I don't see God ever blessing America again

I know that most people don't believe this but it is true. God will bless the church that is founded upon the foundation of Christ and no other foundation will suffice.

God bless you as you consider this message.
