Genesis 1:1

Do You Believe?

Genesis 1:1

This simple statement tells the story of man's beginning

Do you believe it? Is the Bible true?

Some False Teaching

Atheist; evolutionist, humanist, and popular media

There is no God we are the product of accident

Nothing exploded into something and here we are

We naturally evolved from a one celled organism

God didn't create us, we created Him

Theistic evolution

There is a God but, he lied about how He created the world

Find a gap between Gen 1:1 and 1:2

Days in Gen 1 are not literal 24 hour days

Results of this teaching

Man is accountable only to himself

As long as I am happy nothing else matters

I am in control of my destiny. I can do as I please

Or the Bible is a folk tale and therefore not authority

It just gives us general good advice

We can't rely on it for absolute truth

God lied in the first message He gave us

How can we trust the rest of Scripture?

Can we be sure we will be rewarded or punished?

In The Beginning God Created

This is how history began

Sir Fred Hoyle famous astronomer noted that asking him to believe that the spontaneous generation of life on this earth in only 4.5 billion years, has produced a human being we today know as homo sapiens, is like asking him to believe that a whirlwind went through a junkyard and, from the materials contained therein assembled a Boeing 747. "Piloting the Strait" Dave Miller Pg 38.

Intelligent design demands intelligent beginning

How long did Genesis 1 take?

Genesis 1:1-3

Do you see room for a gap in those verses?

These verses have no room for a gap of billions of years

How long were those days of creation?

Genesis 1:5

Genesis 1:8

Genesis 1:13

Genesis 1:19

Genesis 1:23

Genesis 1:31

How long is it from evening thru morning?

God presented it as 6 days of a week

Exodus 20:8-11

Israel was to work 6 days and rest on 7th

Because God created in 6 days and rested on 7th

How long is your work day? May seem long, but only 24 hours in a day

Do you believe God?

Why Does Man Have Such Trouble With This?

Belief in God requires accountability to God.

John 5:44

Since God created us, He is above us in authority

Acts 8:12

James 2:22-23

Even the atheist understands the chain of command

Basic instinct teaches most powerful is in control

Since God created us we are no longer "top dog"

When find selves under authority of another

Understand we must obey them; Parents, Boss at work

Since God created us we must be obedient

Realizing accountability to God, no longer do as we please

God is in control, must accept we are no longer number one

Yet as humans we don't like idea we can't control our lives

Some so caught up in self, won't accept authority of someone else

Refuse to believe "God created" - belief necessitates obedience

Admit belief in God must relinquish control and stop evil practices

Do You Believe God Created?

Hebrews 11:6

Romans 10:17

Hearing and believing are but the beginning of salvation. They are though, absolutely necessary to salvation

Hebrews 3:16-4:2

If don't believe "God created" we are doomed to eternal destruction.

Once we believe must change in repentance.

Acts 17:30-31

Acts 2:37-38

We must confess Christ as the Son of God.

Romans 10:8-10

Must be obedient in baptism.

Mark 16:16

Acts 2:37-38

1Peter 3:20-21

We must continue to obey the creator.

John 1:1-5

John 1:14

John 8:31-32

We must confess our sins to the creator

1John 1:9

Again I ask Do you believe? Have you demonstrated and completed your belief in obedience to the simple Gospel of Christ?
