The literal Genesis record of supernatural creation is the foundation of the true gospel of Christ and all crucial aspects of biblical Christianity. True education, true science, and even the institution of marriage and family, are also based on the truths found in Genesis. In fact, all truth in every area of life finds its beginning in the Genesis record—the very word means “beginning,” after all. God placed it first in the Bible for a very good reason, for it is the foundation of all foundations.
But while Genesis is the foundation, it is not the complete structure. Jesus Christ is our Creator, but He has also become our Redeemer and will one day be acknowledged by all as King and Lord. Thus, winning the world and all its systems back to God must be our ultimate goal. Of course, no organization could achieve such a task alone, and it will never be fully accomplished until Christ returns to “make all things new” (Revelation 21:5). But we should at least be earnestly working toward that end, doing what we can to meet this great challenge.
