Sadly, this is largely due to the fact that most Christians read Genesis 1 has a rebuttal to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
But did God really inspire Moses to write a rebuttal to Evolution over 3000 years before the theory of evolution even existed?
Maybe a better way of reading Genesis 1 is to look at the cultural, social, and religious issues that were prominent in the days of Moses, and then reading the “creation account” in light of those issues.
That is what I try to do in these studies. This course considers the so-called “creation account” of Genesis 1:1 – Genesis 2:3 to see the REAL truth God was seeking to teach in the opening chapter of the Bible.
PLEASE NOTE: The audio files for this course were originally created for my “One Verse Podcast” (which is now called the “Redeeming God Podcast”). So many of the audio files contain invitations for the listener to join my Discipleship Group. But if you are taking this course, then you are already part of my group (Thank you!) and you can just ignore those invitations.
