How Firm is the Foundation of Society?

There is an increasing antagonism toward God, the Bible, Christians, those of us who reject common-ancestor evolution and believe in a recent creation, and so on from mockers. They use self-identify in various ways, but atheist encompasses them rather well. Some go so far as to duncically claim in opposition to quality scholarship that Jesus never existed, others assert that the Bible is "evil", and a passel use the "full of errors" myth. One sidewinder wrote the Skeptic's Annotated Bible and used his viperine chicanery to claim that a book he doesn't believe in the first place is errant, so he is making money from weak-minded people who join with him in finding excuses to reject God. Nice trick. His poor "scholarship" can be dismantled.

Liken this to a building. You can have an excellent foundation, but if the structure built upon it is squirrelly and unmaintained (if drunken cowhands on payday shoot up the saloon ceiling, the roof has to be repaired to keep it from leaking, and their activities must be halted), the foundation is blameless. Similarly, people have disrespected and abandoned their biblical foundations, embracing secularism and evolutionary thinking. It is no wonder that civilized society is deteriorating, but that was caused by perfidious people, not God or his Word.
Have you ever stopped to consider just how much positive effect Bible-believing Christianity has had on societies throughout the world? It is also no coincidence that in prosperous nations such as Great Britain, the United States of America, much of Europe, Canada, South Korea and Australia, a significant proportion of society historically embraced biblical Christianity.

Children raised by parents “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4) for generations grew up to influence all walks of life, including as business leaders, decision-makers, lawmakers, police and judges, and in the arts and sciences.

Among the things they were taught was that the Bible gave a true history of the world, including:
