A Firm Foundation (MP3)
We need a firm foundation to weather the storm of false ideas
by Sandy Simpson, 4/15/14
Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

A house built on the rock will stand. The Rock is God and in particular, Jesus Christ. Therefore His written Word is the teachings of the His Holy Spirit and a Rock we can depend on. Anyone who wants to prove anything theologically, historically, scientifically or anything else needs to start with correct information. If you start with a faulty foundation, as you build your arguments, they begin to fall apart because they are not supported in God’s truth. If you want to build on a firm foundation, you need to start the process by a careful study of God’s Word in context of the verse and according to the whole counsel of God’s Word. The Bible is the best commentary on the Bible.
There are many false ideas floating around out there that have been there, some from long ago. Those ideas were formed in lieu of God’s Word, not from it. I am going to give some examples of false ideas in history, science and theology and show how they could have been avoided if the Bible had been consulted. Yes, the Bible is accurate for more than just theology. Keeping it in context we can accurately understand history, science and a whole host of other subjects.
