Back to Basics: Genesis 2

Chapter two is a very important chapter as it covers a more in-depth creation of Adam and Eve (looking back into the initial creation week), establishes a day of rest, and has the first mention of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  This chapter is also misused to try and portray a contradiction in the Bible.  A new or immature follower of Christ can easily become confused by these artificial contradictions so one of our primary goals is to educate fellow believers in how to see through such subterfuge.

Back to Basics: Genesis 1

Our goal is to equip believers with the knowledge they need to have confidence in Scripture and to counter the arguments of modern humanism and evolution.  In this article, we are going to focus on the basics of Biblical creation.  This week, we will review Genesis chapter one, and in the following weeks we will look at chapter two, other passages in the Old and New Testament relating to creation, and how an incorrect view of creation can keep us from an accurate understanding of Biblical doctrine.
