Joshua 22:27

But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.

When the two-and-a-half tribes returned to their inheritance, they did not want to cross the Jordan without setting up a memorial to remind them and the generations to come of their history, of what God had done for them, and to whom they belonged. That memorial was critical so that generations to come would not change.

We live in days when the woke crowd is bent on destroying the memorials of our nation and of our Christian heritage because they want to change the soul of our nation. My friend, each memorial is critical to remind us who we are, where we came from, and to whom we belong. Not only are the memorials being destroyed as a nation, but our memorials as independent fundamental Baptists are also being destroyed by frauds who pose as sincere people who want to “clean up” our movement. Let me simply say that we don't have a movement; we have memorials that God has given us to remind us of who we are, where we came from, and to whom we belong. Let me share six memorials that should never be destroyed.

First, the King James Bible is our memorial. The only reason frauds who pose as intellects want to destroy the inspiration and preservation of the King James Bible is because they want to destroy our foundation. If we are unwilling to fight over God’s Word being changed, then we will not care if we change who we are as believers, and eventually change what we preach about salvation.

Second, our simple salvation is a memorial. Every time we look at our salvation we are reminded that we belong to God. Every time we spread the good news of salvation through soul winning, we are keeping the memorial alive. We are guilty of sending people to Hell when we complicate salvation's simplicity. The simplicity of salvation is a memorial that reminds us that we belong to Christ.

Third, the altar is a memorial. The reason some say that the altar is not important is because they want to change who we are. The altar has always been a memorial of decisions we’ve made. If we stop using the altar or stop stressing its importance, we will destroy a memorial that God has given to us to keep us from changing.

Fourth, the local church is a memorial. God made the local church as a memorial to point the believer to Christ who is the head of the church. To allow fellowships, colleges, and denominations to dictate what we believe is to destroy a critical memorial that keeps us changing the old paths.

Fifth, our heritage is a memorial. There are many men from the past who passed down the old paths to us, and we must never destroy what they gave to us because it will change us and what we believe.

Sixth, the prayer closet is a memorial. Many great decisions have been made in prayer, and we must daily go to the prayer closet as it reminds us of those critical decisions we made by faith so that we keep serving God without change.
