Genesis 1:1 (Freethinking Cynics Start Here)

posted in: Genesis | 0

Genesis 1:1  “In the beginning God Created the heavens and the earth. ” This is the fundamental statements of the Bible. According to many this the first lie the Bible tells. Those who want responsibility to no one find God’s very existence to be disagreeable.  Many of these folks are well educated, hold degrees from our most prestigious schools in arts, and sciences. They spend their lives using science and philosophy to disprove the great things in this book.

Science tries to come up with a logical explanation for our existing using what they can readily see. They use their findings to prove how earth’s compounds could have been used to bring every aspect of our world into being. The social scientist use their skills to explain how we evolved as social critters. Unlike the Bible, the opinions of both these groups change as often as the weather, but are geared to one objective. That objective is to disprove God.

In the 1970’s we were told no more than two egg yolks were to be eaten per week, and butter was out of the question; so we were forced to eat margarine, and egg whites. Here is an article on this topic Eggs 1970. Today, butter in moderation is fine, an egg a day, probably not a biggie if you are eating veggies. It has been pretty much learned that if you have a problem with cholesterol, saturated fat consumption needs to be limited. Most people really do not have to worry about it. Here is newer article on the fact.  I am sure by the time this article is indexed by the web search engines, science will have changed its mind again.

The Bible has been around since Moses. Not all of it of course, it was not completed until 100AD, and Moses did not live long enough to be present at completion.  We think the Bible was completed by John while in prison for his beliefs on the isle of Patmos. John during his stent there wrote the book of Revelation, last the book in the Bible. The Bible has been in print via mostly manual processes until it was mass-produced by Johannes Gutenberg of MainzGermany in 1448 via his printing press.  For further research and explanation of the Bibles authenticity see “Recent Perspectives on the Reliability of the Gospels”.  Since 100AD, no material changes have been made to Gods word, unlike science, God knows how we got here, and he has not changed.

Our creator God is a triune God. I like to think of God as the family name. We have Jehovah God (The Father), The Holy Spirit – God, and Jesus God who created the world.  John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. 2. He was with God in the beginning. 3. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.”

In essence, we learned today via John 1:1 and Genesis 1:1 that the Christian Bible says our earth, the sky, space, and all that is in them was created by God the Father and Jesus the Son of God.

We have through the attached articles validated the authenticity of the Bible by our standards.  The following videos, are centered around discovering the origin of the species and our basic building blocks.

Lastly, this documentary is a great at explaining Genesis from a scientific point of view. Non believers in the bible will need an open mind to get much from the film, open minds on either side of the issue are rare these days.

You can rent the film for $3.99 in standard definition.
