Genesis 1-2 contains the account of God creating the heavens and the earth. The earth is created in six consecutive days and on the seventh day God rested. The pinnacle of this account is the creation of man in His image.
After reading Genesis 1 and 2, it is clear that the world was good. Yet when we look at the world now we will be right to conclude that it is not good. Disease, destruction, and death to mention only a few are some of the horrible realities we are confronted with daily.
Things in the world go from bad to worse in Genesis 6. This chapter begins by describing the downward spiral mankind’s sinfulness. God declares a judgment of destruction by means of a de-creation through a flood.
Genesis 11 gives an account of humanity’s refusal to obey the Lord and their attempt to be great apart from the Lord. The people departed from God’s original command to be “fruitful and multiply and fill the earth” (Gen. 1:28).
