Adrian Rogers: How to Have a True Foundation

_

 

Published on Apr 22, 2016

We cannot have a Biblical worldview without a true foundation. Adrian Rogers shares important insight into why a Christian worldview provides a foundation that explains the relationship we are to have with a personal God. A Christ-centered worldview is essential to understanding His plan.

Introduction
Thus far we’ve been just kind of circling the woods a little bit, but now we’re going to
begin to start at the beginning place and build outward to try to tell you how we can
have a firm, a full, a true foundation to face this world in which we live. There’s no better
place to start than in the starting place, which is the most read verse in all of the Bible.
Now the most loved verse in all of the Bible is John 3:16. But the most read verse in all
of the Bible is Genesis 1:1. More people have read that than any other verse because
more people at some time or another have said, “Let’s see what this book is about,” and
they start at the starting place. That’s a good place for us to start, so I want you to open
your Bibles tonight as we’re talking about a Christian worldview. And we’re going to start
tonight at the starting place, and then we’re going to build out from there.
The starting place is Genesis 1 and verse 1: “In the beginning…”—in the starting
place—“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) This is
foundational truth. Now if you want to understand truth, you’ve got to enter into the
temple of truth. And in the temple of truth the key is on the front door. It is Genesis 1:1.
And very frankly, folks, when we come to Genesis 1:1, we come with a teacup to an
ocean of truth. We do not have the ability, nor the time, nor the insight, to exhaust this
one verse, the truth of this one verse.
But there are four thoughts about God that I want to give you that come out of this
one verse that will be foundational. And we’re going to come back to the early verses of
Genesis, and we’re going to talk about what the Bible has to say about humanism, what
the Bible has to say about New Ageism, what the Bible has to say about evolution, what
the Bible has to say about the family, what the Bible has to say about homosexuality,
what the Bible has to say about animal rights, what the Bible has to say about
feminism—it’s all going to come right out of the book of Genesis, and it’s going to begin
and come back to this one verse: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the
earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
I. A God Who Is Simply Presented
Now in all philosophy, really, there’s only one great question: Did God make man, or did
man make God? And everything else just flows out of that according to the answer to
that one particular verse. Now God made man. And what you see here in this one
verse, first of all, is a God who is simply presented. Write that down: “A God who is
simply presented.” God is not argued. God is not explained. God is not defended. God
is just simply presented. “In the beginning God…” (Genesis 1:1) Now it might surprise
you to know that the Bible writers never tried to prove the existence of God. If you try to
prove the existence of God, you’re going to do something that the writers of the Bible
never attempted to do. And the Bible has all that you and I need for faith. It is full and it
is complete. And there is no explanation in the Bible for the existence of God. God is
simply presented. And God must be accepted by faith.
Now if you live very long, a skeptic will come to you, and a skeptic will throw this
challenge down to you: “Prove there is a God.” Don’t endeavor to do it. Do not endeavor
to do it. You’ll be endeavoring to do something the Bible does not endeavor to do. And
you just simply say to that skeptic, “I cannot prove to you that God exists.” And when
you say that, he will smile and act like he’s won a victory, but he has not. You say to
him, “Now prove God does not exist.” And he can no more prove that God does not
exist than you can prove that God does exist. You see, we are finite. God is infinite. And
the finite can never prove nor disprove the existence of the infinite. And so the scientists
have moved heaven and earth trying to prove how the world and the universe came into
existence. But science can’t do that, because science is limited to the study of
phenomena and processes that are now existing. The scientist has to have those things
that are now existing to go into his laboratory. And if he doesn’t have that, he must
remain silent.
That’s the reason God threw out this question to Job—and I’d like to throw it out to

every scientist alive today—Job chapter 38 and verse 4: “Where were you when I laid
the foundations of the earth? Declare if you have understanding.” (Job 38:4) What He’s
saying is, “You weren’t around when I did it, and so there’s no way that you can
examine it.” Now, you see, folks, we must learn this, that we are not the only ones who
are believers. Everybody, all almost six billion people who live on the face of the earth,
are believers—everyone. Some believe in God, and some don’t believe in God. But all
are believers. We believe there is a God. They believe there is no God. We accept by
faith there is a God. They must accept by faith there is no God. They can no more prove
that God does not exist than we can prove that God does exist.
Now when I said we don’t have proof, I didn’t mean that we don’t have evidence.
There’s incredible evidence. I mean, if you have a creation, common sense tells you
you must have a Creator. As we’ve said before, “Nothing plus nobody equals
everything” is the creed of the atheists. I mean, it’s pretty stupid, really. Excuse me. I’m
not supposed to say that. It’s pretty non-intelligent.
Now, you know, to look for scientific proof of God would be like taking a piano apart
looking for a song. God is not subject to scientific proof. Now whether you believe in
God or not is not a matter, therefore, of intellectualism. It’s not a matter of the mind. It’s
a matter of the heart. The Bible says, in Psalm 53, verse 1, “The fool hath said in his
heart, There is no God.” (Psalms 14:1; Psalms 53:1) Now when the Bible uses the word
fool, it does not mean the man who is mentally deficient; it means the man who is
morally deficient. The word nabal, or fool, does not deal with the intellect. It deals with
integrity; it deals with morality. And what God is saying is that a man with a wicked heart
is the kind of a man who denies God.
And how did they get to be fools? Well, the Bible tells us, in Romans 1, verse 22,
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” (Romans 1:22) And they must
maneuver themselves into not believing in God. Romans 1, verse 28, says, “And even
as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate
mind.” (Romans 1:28) And so when the Bible says, “The fool has said in his heart there
is no God,” (Psalms 14:1; Psalms 53:1) what it literally means is, “The fool says, ‘No
God for me.’ ” It doesn’t literally say, “The fool has said in his heart there is no God,” but
it literally says, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘No God,’ ” just like you might go through
the cafeteria line and say, “No dessert.” And the fool says, “No God. I do not want God.”
But when he refuses God, and when he says there is no God, something inside tells
him that he is lying, and he knows that he’s lying.
I told you before of a trucking firm whose headquarters is in Atlanta, Georgia. And
that trucking firm gives a test to all of the prospective employees. It is a lie detector test.
And one question on that lie detector test is this: Do you believe in God? And not
everybody said they did. There were some who said they did not believe in God. But
everyone who said they did not believe in God, the lie detector said, he’s lying—he’s
lying—everyone—because down in the human heart there is that residual thing that the
Bible says, “God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith,” (Romans 12:3) and
Christ is that light that “lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” (John 1:9)
So “in the beginning God,” He is just simply presented—a God who is simply
presented. Don’t get into the difficulty of trying to prove that God exists. You can give
evidences for God, but the proof that God exists is beyond you. But God does exist, and
He is a God who is simply presented.
II. A God Who Is Sovereignly Powerful
Now here’s the second thing I want you to learn about this God. He is a God who is
sovereignly powerful. Look again at this verse: “In the beginning God”—did what? He—
“created.” (Genesis 1:1) He created. His mighty power, Paul says, in Romans, is seen
through the creation. (Romans 1:20) Only God has creative power. Only God has
originating power. The Hebrew word for create is bara, and it’s used about fifty times,
and it means “to make something out of absolute nothing.”
Turn to Romans chapter 4 for a moment, and let me point that out again. In Romans
4, you’re going to see it, and then we’re going to look at Hebrews 11. Look in Romans 4
and verse 17—Paul is talking about the faith of Abraham: “(As it is written, I have made
thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who
quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
(Romans 4:17) What that simply means is, God is the only One who can make
something out of nothing.
And then turn to the book of Hebrews, if you will, and look with me in Hebrews
chapter 11 and verse 3. There again we have the same idea that God makes something
out of nothing: “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of
God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
(Hebrews 11:3) That is, God is the One who makes something out of nothing, the only
One who can. Man cannot create anything, and man cannot destroy anything. All man
can do is to change the form.
People talk about the laws of nature. There are no laws of nature. There are God’s
laws that nature obeys. Science simply discovers those laws. Science does not create
those laws any more than Columbus created North America because he discovered it.
You see, in the beginning, God made something of nothing.
An eloquent black preacher said—and I quote—“God stepped from behind the
curtain of nowhere and stood upon the platform of nothing and spoke a world into
existence.” I like that. You see the handiwork of God in what He made. A tiny cell, one
cell, just one cell in the human body, is so incredibly wonderful—just one cell. And there
are 100 trillion cells or more in your body.
Paul Doty of Harvard University said that one human cell, just one of them, is more
complicated in its existence than all of New York City. I hope in a lot better shape, if it’s
your cell. But just take that one cell—more complicated than that megalopolis, and there
are 100 trillion of them in your body! Much smaller than the cell is the atom. A billion
hydrogen atoms put side by side are not as thick as the page of this Bible that I have.
The atom is so small, and it’s mostly space.
I read not so long ago, if you were to take all of the emptiness out of everything,
squeeze all of the nothing out of it, you could put the entire earth and its remains in a
two-gallon bucket. It’s incredible. You think of the smallness, the intricacy of what God
made. God made it out of nothing.
And then think of the incredible size of the universe. Light travels at the rate of
186,282 miles per second. That’s how fast it travels. It travels so fast they can’t
measure it in miles; they measure it in years—light-years. Traveling at that speed, it
passes the moon in two seconds. Bang, bang, it’s past the moon. It takes it, folks, four
years to reach the nearest star. That’s four light-years away, four and a half light-years
away, and yet light, traveling from earth, would not reach the edge of our known
universe for ten billion light-years, traveling at 186,282 miles per second.
Who made all of that? How did it happen? By chance? No. God did it. “In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
If you see a watch, I hope you assume there’s a watchmaker. If you see a water
system, I hope you assume that somebody designed it. If you see a building, I hope you
assume an architect. And if you see the precise atomic clocks of the universe, I hope
you don’t believe that happened by chance. If you see the hydrologic cycle in nature, I
hope you don’t believe that happened by chance. If you see the complex structure of
your body, or any human body, or any organism that God has made, I hope you don’t
believe that that happened by chance.
The evolutionists believe that billions of years, plus time, plus chance, can turn frogs
into princes. In school, they call that fairy tales. In the laboratory, they call it science.
Man cannot create. All man can do is to change things. He can take simpler forms and
put them into more complex forms, or vice versa, but he cannot create. So what you
have in Genesis 1:1 is a God who is simply presented. He is not argued; He’s just
presented.“In the beginning God…” (Genesis 1:1)
Then you have a God who is sovereignly powerful, the God who does what He alone
can do and that is to create. When we get to evolution, one of the questions I want all
the kids to ask their teacher when they get to school: Where did all this primordial ooze
come from? I mean, regardless, if they say, “Well, you know, there was green scum
somewhere,” where did the green scum come from? They say, “Life came from Mars.”
Well, where did Mars come from? Where did it come from? You’re cast on two
alternatives: a self-existing universe or a self-existing God. And it’s much easier to
believe, unless you’re a materialist, that God created the heavens and the earth.
III. A God Who Is Surely Purposeful
Here’s the third thing I want you to learn about God. Now this is foundational. A God
who is simply presented—not argued, presented. A God who is sovereignly powerful—
the God who made it all, He is the creative God. The third thing: a God who is surely
purposeful. Why did He do it? Well, when you look at creation, there are two things you
can see in creation very easily. One is design, and the other is purpose.
Now, let me give you three reasons why God did it:
A. God Made Everything for His Pleasure
First of all, God created everything just for His pleasure. He’s God, and He can do
whatever He wishes. And the Bible says, in Revelation chapter 4, verse 11, speaking to
the Lord Jesus Christ, who was God’s agent in creation, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to
receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy
pleasure they are and were created.” (Revelation 4:11) He did it to please Himself. He
created it for His pleasure.
B. God Made Everything for His Praise
The second reason He created it is for His praise. Put these scriptures down. Romans
11, verse 36: “For of him,”—speaking of God—“and through him, and to him, are all
things: to whom be glory for ever.” (Romans 11:36) Psalm 150, verse 6, says, “Let
every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.” (Psalms 150:6) Everything that God
created is a grand paeon in a crescendo of praise. The trees are to lift their branches
and say, “Praise the Lord!” The flowers are to unfold their petals and say, “Praise the
Lord!” The birds, as they spread their wings, are to praise the Lord. The stars that nestle
in the bosom of the sky are to say, “Praise the Lord!” As Niagara Falls rolls and rolls and
rolls, it is to say, “Praise the Lord!” God created it all for His pleasure and for His praise.
C. God Made Everything for His People
The third reason that God made it all is for His people, so you and I would have a place
to live, because God was going to create a race, and God had to have a place for them
to stand and sleep and eat and work. So He made it for us—a home. And when God
made it, God stepped back and said that it was good.
And let me say that all of God’s creation is good. Don’t you ever become an ascetic;
don’t you ever think that material things are bad. Don’t ever think for one moment that
this earth and materialism is bad. It is not bad. Materialism is bad if it becomes your
God. But to love the world that God made is not bad. God created it, and God said, “It is
good.” And God put Adam and Eve in a garden, and God said to them, “Help yourself.”
“Of every tree in the garden thou mayest freely eat.” (Genesis 2:16) And the devil wants
you to think negatively about God’s creation, as if God doesn’t love you. But God does
love you.
Put these verses down, speaking of creation for His people. Psalm 37, verse 4:
“Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
(Psalms 37:4) Psalm 84, verse 11: “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will
give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
(Psalms 84:11) First Timothy chapter 6, verse 17: “Charge them that are rich in this
world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God,
who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.” (1 Timothy 6:17) Why did God make
strawberries? For us—for us. I mean He is a good God. Why did God create this world?
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) Why? For His
pleasure, for His praise, and for His people.
IV. A God Who Is Savingly Personal
Now here’s the fourth thing I want us to learn about God tonight. Not only is this God a
God who is simply presented, and not only is this God a God who is sovereignly
powerful, and not only is this God a God who is surely purposeful, but this is a God who
is savingly personal. Now He is savingly personal. Look, if you will, in this verse again:
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Now the name for God here is
the name Elohim, and it speaks of a personal God. We’re going to talk with you about
that for a moment. The word El means a God who has unlimited power. It’s the word
that speaks of strength. So He is El. And then the last part of that word Elohim, alah,
comes from a word which means “to swear,” or “to make a covenant.” Put those two
words together—strength and covenant—and what you have is a God who is Almighty
and who always keeps His word. Now, think about it. In the beginning, Elohim—the One
who is Almighty and who always keeps His word—created the heavens and the earth.
(Genesis 1:1) That means He is savingly personal.
Now a few years ago, a movie came out called Star Wars. I have not seen that
movie unless I’ve caught part of it on television. I don’t normally go to the movie houses,
as such. I don’t think I’ve seen the movie. But I think I’ve read enough about it to know
that that movie, in some way, gives a tacit recognition of a supreme being, but the
supreme being in that movie is called “the Force.” You see, that’s impersonal. But in the
Bible, God is not “the Force”; God is a person who has intelligence, emotion, and will.
Now we’re going to be talking about a Christian worldview. And Genesis 1:1
decimates every other worldview except the biblical worldview. For example, one
worldview that some people have is atheism: There is no God. Well, you can’t believe in
Genesis 1:1 and believe that. Another worldview is polytheism: many gods. But you
can’t believe Genesis 1:1 and believe that. Another worldview is fatalism—that
everything is just going to happen; there’s nothing we can do about it. You can’t believe
Genesis 1:1 and believe that, because here is a loving God, who is all-powerful and
always keeps His word. Another worldview is pantheism—that is, that the universe and
God are the same, that everything is God. And pantheism, of course, as we’re going to
see, comes out of Hinduism. They believe that God is in everything, and everything is
God. And so you’re God, and I’m God, and the animals are God. This is the basis of
New Ageism that we’re going to talk about—that everybody is God, we’re becoming
God, and it’s all wrapped up in reincarnation, and all of that. And so everything is God.
Well, don’t feel too good about that if you believe in pantheism. That doesn’t elevate
you; that degrades you, because if everything is God, then dirt is God, and God is dirt,
and you are God, and you are dirt. I mean, think about it. You see, this does away with
atheism. It does away with polytheism. It does away with fatalism. It does away with
pantheism. It does away with materialism. The materialist says that the universe has
always existed. Carl Sagan believes that. That’s much more difficult to believe than
Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
Materialism is the eternality of matter.
And so we have a God in this book who is simply presented. He is the God with
whom nothing is impossible (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27) and who always keeps His
word. But we have another word that describes this God who is savingly personal. It is
the word Elohim, which is a plural noun. It’s plural. So what it literally says is, “In the
beginning Gods created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) You say, “Well now,
wait a minute, Pastor. I thought you said there’s only one God.” There is. But look, if you
will, in verse 26: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, and after our likeness.”
(Genesis 1:26) One God who presents Himself in three persons—God the Father, God
the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God reveals Himself in the opening verse of the Bible
as a triune God.
Now, folks, we have a God who is simply presented; we should recognize Him. We
have a God who is sovereignly powerful; we should respect Him. We have a God who
is surely purposeful; we should reverence Him. We have a God who is savingly
personal; we should receive Him. All of that is right here in Genesis 1:1: “In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
Conclusion
Now since Genesis 1:1 is there, and it is foundational, I want to leave you with two basic
thoughts, two basic truths to live by.

A. We Have a Solemn Obligation to God
Truth number one: We have a solemn obligation to God because He created us. The
Bible says, in Isaiah 45, verse 9, “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker!” (Isaiah
45:9) Ecclesiastes 12, verse 1, says, “Remember now thy Creator.” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
We have an obligation to God. We are His, and twice His. Isaiah 43, verse 1: “But now
thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear
not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name.” (Isaiah 43:1) We are His
because of creation and because of redemption. He made us, and He bought us, and
we have an obligation to Him. “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker!” (Isaiah 45:9)
That’s the first thought I want to leave you with tonight.
B. God Has an Obligation to Us
Here’s the second thought I want to leave you with tonight. Not only do we have an
obligation to God, but folks, God has an obligation to us. Now I’m not being smartmouthed
when I say that. The Bible calls Him, in 1 Peter 4 and verse 19, “a faithful
Creator.” (1 Peter 4:19) Now, what does that mean? It means that God did not make us
to abandon us. You know, one of the worst things that a man can do is to father a child
and abandon that child. Do you know that?
Folks, I want to tell you, when God brought us into this universe, God did not make
us to abandon us. When God made the first creation, and He stepped back, and when it
was finished, God said, “It’s good.” But then sin came into the world; it was not good
anymore. But then the Lord Jesus Christ came and died on this cross to pay for our sin.
And when He had finished, again He said, “It is finished.” (John 19:30)—“it is done.”
And now there is a new creation for all who will believe. And so, when you give your
heart to God, when you trust Him as your Lord and Savior, when you receive Christ,
when the Holy Spirit comes into you, you are fulfilling your obligation to Him. You’re
saying, “You made me. You redeemed me. I surrender to you.”
Then when He comes into you to guard you, guide you, protect you, and take care of
you, He fulfills His obligation to you. And I want to tell you that the God who made you,
the God who created you, did not create you to abandon you. Now we’re going to take
Genesis 1:1 and the rest of these other chapters of Genesis, and we’re going to see
how these truths impinge upon all of these lies that are in the world today.
Let’s bow our heads in prayer. Our heads and eyes are closed. I think of that song
that says,
It took a miracle to put the stars in place;
It took a miracle to hang the world in space.
But when He saved my soul,
Cleansed and made me whole,

It took a miracle of love and grace!
—JOHN W. PETERSON
Would you like that miracle tonight? Then pray and ask Christ to come into your
heart. Pray like this: “Lord, I believe that you created me, and I believe you sent the
Lord Jesus to die for me, to redeem me. And I have an obligation to give to you my
heart, my life, my all, and I do it right now.”
