The Garden of Eden

35011052015Dr. Peter Masters

It is often claimed by those cynical toward the Bible that Genesis 1 is contradicted by Genesis 2. Naturally, such claims find their way to the top of the web search engine lists, and if anyone Googles Genesis, or Adam or Eve, or creation, articles come up asserting various discrepancies. But it is clear that these articles are not by people who read Genesis with any degree of care, because their claims are so obviously mistaken and easily refuted. Genesis is amazingly precise and consistent as narrative.

The Absence of Godly Masculinity

Dr. Alan DunnDr. Alan J. Dunn

The contemporary dissolution of the family and the demise of true religion today are both attributable to the absence of godly masculinity.

Creation and the Dignity of Man

Dr. Alan DunnDr. Alan J. Dunn

In 1 Timothy 4:1-5 Paul informs us of the attacks of our adversary. His strategy involves an attempt to pervert the doctrine of Creation.

The Creation

Dave-Chanski-AuthorDave Chanski

Creation

Chapter 4 of the London Baptist Confession of Faith immediately tells us the reason God made all things. He did not make the universe especially for man. He made it “for the manifestation of the glory of his eternal power, wisdom, and goodness.” That is, He made it to bring glory to Himself. When we consider that God called all things into being out of nothing, and when we consider the vast size of the universe and how large the sun and stars are, and when we behold the great power of the winds and the oceans, we realize that the One who made them has exceedingly great power. Paul wrote, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:20). Jeremiah wrote, “He has made the earth by His power” (Jeremiah 10:12). We are led to humbly adore and worship such an almighty God.
