Genesis 1:1-5 (KJV) – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
The very first sentence of scripture
declares “In the beginning God”! Before
anything there was God. Many people do not believe that statement in Genesis 1:1.
They refuse to believe that in the beginning there was God. A God that created the heaven and earth out
of nothing. Scripture states that God
spoke everything into existence. God
spoke light into existence as His first creative act. Light was created on the first day.
We have been led to
believe that scientists do not believe in God or the
Bible. I do
not believe this is correct, as many scientists have been and are Bible
believers. What’s interesting is that most science books
are obsolete as soon as they are printed! I believe that science, properly applied and
understood, proves the Bible is an inspired book. Moreover,
while the Bible is not a science book, it is accurate where it touches
on scientific principles.
