Pamphlet #6202 Genesis KC 1-3

The first words of truth and wisdom.

And so we begin, at the beginning, with the first sentence,
the first ten English words, the first categorical statement in the Word of God.

It is a statement so profound and so powerful that it strikes fear in hearts of atheists and ACLU lawyers,
and drives them to seek legislation whereby these ten words
cannot be uttered in the classrooms of public schools for fear of the "damage" it may cause children.

For if they (the children) believe this statement,
the next thing you know they'll start believing that they are children of God,
and that they are somebody, and that their authority is their heavenly Father.

It will then be difficult to control them with socialism and communism. It is better, therefore, that they believe that they are the end product of organic soup, stewed over billions and billions of years, until it formed like jello into monkeys, who then lost most of their hair, and became people.

This first sentence in God's Word is therefore the great dividing wall
between all of man's vain (stupid) words and theories and philosophies which precede it,
and the wisdom of our Father contained in the words which follow it.

It is, therefore, the perfect opening statement to the perfect Word of God.

It is the "gate" through which we must pass, else that which follows cannot be absorbed.

Ladies and gentlemen, the first words of truth and wisdom:

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Since this statement is of such importance, let's analyze it.

Does it say "when" God created the heaven and earth?

No, it doesn't. It does not say He created them at the same time either.

Does it say that the earth is only 6,000 years old?

No, it doesn't. The heavens are millions of years older then the earth and the 1st earth age was millions of years old when God destroyed it.

Does it say that He created the earth only?

No, it says He created both the heaven and the earth.

So, when was the beginning?

Why did He create the heaven and the earth?

It does not say He created them both at the same time. The earth may have been created millions of years later then heaven.

How did we get here?

Let us search the scriptures.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
