Yahweh  is Better – August 22, 2021

Scripture: Genesis 1  “When God began to create the heavens and the earth – the earth was without shape or form it was dark over the deep sea and God’s wind swept over the waters…” (Gen. 1:1-2)

If Genesis 1 is read with modern expectations instead of ancient eyes, the meaning of this story will be obscured. To respect and more fully understand the story, we must read it as it was meant to be read. The story of creation in Genesis 1 is an ancient story written by and for ancient Israelites. For us to understand it, we must learn to read it through ancient eyes, suspending our twenty-first-century views of science. ​”
