In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. – Gen 1:1
Possibly the greatest words ever spoke and possibly the most controversial words ever spoken in human history. Never has there been more time dedicated in the entirety of human existence than to the research and identification of the beginning of human history.
Did God really create? Was it through evolution? How many days, was it six literal days? Does God exist to create? All questions I either have been asked or people have argued with me over. Of course, if you are a believer, these 10 words are all you ever need to know about creation. God did create, He is the almighty and powerful Father of all things in heaven and on Earth.
All other things are superfluous in light of this verse. This verse tells us that first and foremost, God is above and outside of His creation. Before the beginning there was only God. This means that God was not created but is. There is no past, present or future for God; He just is. That is why when Moses asks, whom shall I say sent me, God responded, tell them the I AM sent you. He just is.
So, because He is outside of creation, creation will never be able to fully understand or define who God is, only God can do that. So, let’s not try to do the impossible, only believe that there is an almighty that created all things just in the manner that He stated He created them.
If you can get your mind to accept that, then the rest of Christianity is a cake walk. If you cannot believe that and you want to buy into worldly science and false theories, then the problem is you can take any scripture and twist it to what you want it to say. This is why the Genesis is so important to defend and support as a Christian, it is the foundation of everything we believe. “In the beginning GOD created,” not you, not me, not evolution or some random process of accidents. No, God the intentional God, made all things as He wanted them to exist created them. Believe that and you have a great start to your belief and theological foundations.
God Bless You All,
