The Book of Genesis
The older I get, the more I realize that the book of Genesis is the foundation of our Christian faith. The creation account as it’s described there is an epic drama on a grand scale.
It tells us what we need to know in order to understand ourselves and the world around us.
 The origin of the world and of life was no accident. There is a Creator. God.
 God made everything there is.
 All that God made was good.
 The high point of all God’s creative acts was the making of man.
 Mankind is distinguished from all other creatures in two respects: We alone are made in God’s likeness; and we are given charge over all the rest.
 God’s 6 days of creative activity followed by a day of rest sets the pattern for man’s working life.
We must NOT EVER compromise our faith by accepting the evolutionary theories of Darwin, the “Big-Bang” theories, the “Long earth-age” theories, or the many theories of modern science that are bent on discrediting the Bible and Christian beliefs. When I was younger I was filled with confusion and doubt as are many people today with schools, universities and television documentaries pushing atheistic views. But Satan is behind all such attacks and we need to guard ourselves against them by believing the Bible in it’s entirety, as the inspired word of our Creator God.
