The Beginning


Today we start reading through the Bible. We start at the beginning.

1 In the beginning God...

In the first four words of the Bible, atheism is dealt with. God is. God was. God was at the very start of things. No argument. No proof. He was. In my profession of real estate, we would call this the assumptive close. He is. No more to be said...

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

In the next six words evolution is dealt with. God created. By an act of his will. And power. No we did not originate as a speck of slime in a primordial soup. We are the product of creation. Later we will find out what kind of God created us. What is he like? What relation does he have, does he want, with the creation he created.

But for now - God created it all...

I wonder why some professing Christians believe the miracle of creation (Gen.1), but have a problem believing some of the other miracles in the bible?
