Genesis Matters

Genesis Matters

“I’ve got to make sure I’m preparing the next generation to run a better race, to run a stronger race, to understand who they are in Christ” CeCe Winans

***Difficult to undo at the dinner table-or one hour on Sunday compared to the hours public school has impact on your kids. 

DIVISION IN THE CHURCH - 2 Timothy 4:3-4 says, “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.”

I listened to a conversation between a Christian, Atheist, and Agnostic come together on what they agree about our nation. They disagreed, but no yelling or calling names-Discourse is essential. They all agreed on our corrupt educational system:

-remove CRT (Critical Race Theory)

-SEL(Social Emotional Learning) is mental health indoctrination

-Sex education has become perverted pornography 

-remove restorative justice-behavior should have consequences

-remove trans agenda under guise of equity, diversity, and inclusion 

If Genesis is removed:

-Role of my faith aligned with what is said and what we do instead of putting our faith in our Creator

"So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh” (Genesis 2: 21-25).

-Understanding Genesis: apologetics defend our Christian faith by the secular attacks of today

-Education: where the Bible is taught as a myth-taught naturalism-worldview of atheism-it teaches our youth to walk away from the church because they are taught they can’t trust the Bible.

-Core issue: Genesis ch.3-obey God’s word-you can be your own God says Satan-a battle of God’s word 

vs. Man’s word

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:2-5).

-In the New Testament, Paul says the devil will attack us like he did Eve so be on guard.

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ” (2 Corinthians 11: 3).

-notice it was enticing and using human nature against themselves-you can be God

-Problem: if this part of the Bible is not true then how can we trust the rest to be true

-Invalidate Genesis 1-11 then they don’t have to win over the minds of youth that the rest of the  Bible is just fiction or part of a myth story. If there is no creator then there is no God then Jesus’ death on the cross doesn’t provide anything. He is just an invalid myth.

-What values are we passing down? Miseducation of American kids who are in k-12 progressive indoctrination are taking over. 

-The point is not what is put in but was was taken out-Bible, pledge, prayer, christian rights

-Target: Remove God-insert Gender fluid human gods-no creator of man and woman

Ex. There is no biological sex. It is a spectrum of genders

-Founders education-think critically and have freedom of thought

-Appropriate grade level and what exposed to has been removed: environmentalism, climate change, sex education, SEL, CRT, intersectionality, American history, and gender theory 

 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matthew 18:8)
