In the Beginning—God!
“In the beginning God….” Genesis 1:1
The Bible begins with this statement. The fact of God is not argued here. Neither is the nature and being of God explained. He is just presented. “In the beginning God….” No philosophy presented, no argument made, no apology offered, and no explanation given; just, “In the beginning God….”
The Bible writers never tried to prove God. They presented God. They never tried to explain the existence of God. Nor should you. Don’t let this shock you, but there are no proofs for God. The finite can never prove the infinite. To try to prove God by looking through physical or material things would be like tearing a piano apart trying to find “The Hallelujah Chorus.” The first four words of the written Word of God say all we need to know: In the beginning—God!
You will never really comprehend anything else in the Bible unless you understand Genesis 1:1. This is foundational truth. It is functional truth. You must believe it. You see, the key to the rest of the Bible is hung right here by the front door. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
