I Corinthians 3:11 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
In 1943, the US Army constructed two massive hangars at Muroc Army Air Field, the field that eventually became known as Edwards Air Force Base. These hangars weighed over 1,400 tons, each measuring 250 feet by 283 feet. By 1955, the base had greatly expanded to the north and the hangars were no longer useful where they were. Yet, the base needed similar hangars two miles to the north. After considering the options, the base decided that they would be able to save $2.5 million by moving the current hangars instead of building new ones. The trick was to move these behemoths from one foundation to the next. Over a period of five weeks they did so with great care and these hangars are still in use today.
While this project was successful, it was fraught with peril. In fact, the contractor eventually went bankrupt. It was a massive undertaking, which ended once the hangars were on their new firm foundations.
While these structures were equally stable on the new foundations as on the old ones because the foundations were equivalent, the potential foundations in our lives and in our nation are not equivalent. Indeed, there is no foundation like Jesus Christ. PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICA WOULD RETURN TO ITS ORIGINAL CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION. Our lives and our nation would be in a far better condition if we did so. The alternatives are hardly equivalent.
