house-on-sandAre you familiar with Matthew 7:24-27?? in the bible?

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of

blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall,
because it had its foundation on the rock. 26: But

that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

The show obviously didn’t last long but its title became somewhat a figure of speech in the years after when someone would refer to a question where the answer is not known but everybody wants to know it.Continue reading
