In Week One of Thank God For Science, we discovered together that although we ask Genesis 1 “how” and “when,” it answers back with “who” and “why.”
Over the last couple of months, my Men’s LifeGroup and I have been reading through the letters of Paul. We all read the same chapter each day — at least, we’re supposed to! — and then I send an email with some thoughts and guidance on context, history, and genre. If it has been good for THEM, it has been great for ME: the combination of daily discipline and the fact that I process my thoughts best by writing them has been a real boon to my living relationship with Jesus Christ.
Sunday’s message began and ended with the subject of GOATS — Greatest Of All Time. I explained that just because Genesis 1 is the GOAT of creation hymns, that doesn’t mean it is the GOAT of scientific explanations of the universe’s origins. That’s not its intent. GOAT in one area of life doesn’t mean go to in another area of life.
