The Cornerstone

What matters is your starting point …

It does not matter how intelligent, how educated, how well-informed, how woke, or how sound your reasoning is, if your starting place is wrong, you will end up in the wrong place every time.

The cornerstone is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation. All other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.

If the cornerstone is wrong, the entire structure will be wrong, no matter how well constructed the rest of the structure is.

Build your reasoning and all things on the Chief Cornerstone, the Lord Jesus Christ.

and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; – Ephesians 2:20

Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 1 Peter 2:6
