How many Christians come to Christ and never get the foundational teachings of Jesus Christ? Too many! And like the foundations of a house, this should happen right at the beginning of the process. Is it any wonder many struggle to stand when their feet are planted on the spiritual sands of rhetoric and emotion!
When businesses and governments find things are becoming too complex, what do they say? Usually, they say they need to get “back to basics.”
The “basics” are the key principles that sit beneath all human endeavors and they must be solidly grounded or else the business, enterprise, and even governments will struggle and fall apart.
You cannot build a house unless there is a solid foundation. Likewise, you cannot build a Christian unless the spiritual foundations are strong.
How many Christians suffer? How many fall down or fall away? How many struggle with their faith, especially in the early years when their faith is put to the test?
Again…too many! And most of them suffer because their foundations are not strong enough to withstand the storms of life.
The Six Foundations
This book aims to address this lack. First, it identifies what the Bible defines as the six foundations of Jesus Christ, not what some preachers wrongly state. And second, this book provides insights from the Bible on how to use and build on these foundations.
The Lord Jesus said to the Apostles that He would give them the “keys to the kingdom of heaven.”
These six foundations form the basis of those keys. When these foundations are in place and working effectively, a Christian can withstand any storm or opposition that comes against them.
Today as we walk with Jesus Christ we need to “get back to basics.” These six foundations are the basic teachings all Christians must learn, understand, and hold fast as they walk in this world.
