Genesis and Grace to You

We started a new series on our Grace to You blog highlighting the material John preached from the book of Genesis. Our emphasis wants to be upon the origins debate and its ramifications for our culture and the need for Christians to shore up their biblical view of creation in light of materialistic, evolutionary philosophy. The introductory blog can be read HERE. Later posts will cover a range of interesting subjects, including the age of the earth debate and the problems with intelligent design theory.

If you want something of a background, check out John's series on the first two chapters of Genesis: The Battle for the Beginning

Genesis 1 is very difficult for me. I'm standing on the truth that god created the earth and the sky, and that He even created light before He created the Sun, and that he created the night before the Sun. But I don't understand it.

I do believe and think that the Bible surely teaches that God created all things in the universe in 6 literal days. He created a cow & a bull, a horse, a armadillo, a kangaroo, elephant, and the bear. And all the animals we see today were created by God.

And yet, how did they get dispersed after the flood?

i have many questions. I will look forward to these series.

I like how you said, "the need for Christians to shore up their biblical view of creation in light of materialistic, evolutionary philosophy."

Yep, and Amen to that.

have a good evening in our Lord and Savior.

Fred, check out this post at Evangel titled "To Deny That Reality Would Make Us a Cult."

It starts off with:

"What reality? Evolution—should the data become “overwhelmingly in favor.” So says Professor Bruce Waltke, professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Reformed Theological Seminary, in a video from the BioLogos Foundation, posted by Chaplain Mike at the Internet Monk blog."

And ends with:

"What, exactly, is inerrant when we speak of the authority of Scripture? The words must mean something before we can speak of their being true. And the texts must relate one to the other in a certain way, with a certain through line of consistency and intention. They have their own history, intrinsically connected to a history of a people. What did the biblical authors intend when they set pen to paper (so to speak) informed by and rooted in that history? If you don’t have an answer to that question, then defenses of biblical inerrancy become directionless."
