Book of Genesis
An Introduction & Overview of Genesis
Paul J. Bucknell
Genesis is a book of foundations.
Today's society like all of the world's cultures and philosophies of mankind have been continually attacking God’s foundations. Today the warfare has escalated by the building of a worldwide network to destroy God’s work.
Jesus laid the foundation for making faithful disciples by His life and teachings. This is the reason we are to rebuild our lives on the commands and teachings of Jesus Christ.
A mature disciple by definition is a person who has been able to step out of his culture and build his life on the Word of God. He has been able to critique what he thinks, does and how he responds. The crippled Christian, the backslider, is absorbed in the culture – the world. His tendency is to follow his desires and see no distinction between the world and God.
The more clearly we distinguish God’s ways from the world's ways, the faster we will grow. If we can't discern the world's ways from God’s ways, if we have not been able to have a firm foundation built in our lives, then we must admit that person is worldly and ensnared in Satan's temptation.
We hope through the book of Genesis to show you the difference between God’s ways and man’s ways. Be not scared of the world and its massive influence. Though God be subtle, it is His will that His people be established and all the nations bow before Him.
