8-17-2017 Monumental Destruction

After the Israelites crossed on dry land through the divided Jordan River into the Promised Land, they stacked 12 stones there “that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever” (Joshua 4:5-7 NKJV). Monuments give moments to teach history lessons to curious children. Tear down the monuments, and raise the next generation in ignorance! With wisdom, Solomon said: “Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set” (Proverbs 22:28 NKJV).
