The Way It Was by Kelly L. Segraves

Back To Genesis

 Continuing with verses 28-30 we read, "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God Said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you is shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given green herb for meat: and it was so." He instructed both animal and man to eat the vegetation He created. "And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day." (Genesis 1:31)

In this opening chapter of the Bible we have a statement, in summary form, yet accurate, of what God did in the beginning. It is a framework which explains the known data. It explains the creation of the heavens, the earth, the universe, the solar system, it explains the existence of matter, explains the origin of the space-mass-time universe. It explains why life reproduces after its own kind. It is consistent with the valid laws of science. All we have to do is postulate that there is a God and this God has the power to do what He says He did. We then have an adequate explanation of the beginning.
