The Truth About Truth: Conclusion – What Is Your Foundation?

Psalm 1:1-3, “In the Lord I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, ‘Flee as a bird to your mountain; For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string to shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?’” With the emergence of postmodernism, many arrows have been let loose upon Christianity. Direct darts aimed straight for the heart attack objective truth, praising the man who looks to himself for truth and not the Word of God. As a direct result, churches across America have been negatively impacted to a great extent.

Despite its many apparent and obvious contradictions, some have completely bought into the lie of postmodernism by rejecting Scripture and allowing their desires to be the standard for right and wrong. It seems that in many ways the foundations have been destroyed. When this happens, what will the righteous do? As the Psalmist writes, the righteous can take refuge in the Lord. By building a foundation upon the truth of God’s word, even through this postmodern age Christians can live truth and so shine their light in a dark world. Rather than more division, Christians can be “cross” cultural and learn to live in the world but not of it. As time progresses, so does the culture. Just as modernism had its rise and fall, so too will postmodernism have its fall. Truth on the other hand, which Christ calls the Word of God, will never fall. It will always remain truth. As Christ spoke in Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My word will not pass away.”

So I am left to ask you one question: what is your foundation built upon? The wise man will build his foundation upon the rock of Christ, and he will stand firm. The foolish man will build his house upon the sand, the lies of the world such as postmodernism, and great will be his fall. In the words of Christ, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”[1]
