    Post The Everlasting Gospel

    I'll kick it off by starting at the very beginning.


    †. Gen 1:1 . . In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth.

    That statement is the core of a gospel labled the everlasting gospel; which says:

    " Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." (Rev 14:6-7)

    The everlasting gospel is very elementary. Pretty much all it says is:

    1• There's a supreme being.

    2• He deserves respect.

    3• There's a frightful reckoning looming on the horizon, and

    4• The cosmos— all of its forms of life, matter, and energy —is the product of intelligent design.

    Of particular interest to me is the inclusion of water in the everlasting gospel. Scientists theorize the origin of the earth's amazing quantity of water without really knowing exactly where it came from, nor how it got here. Well; that is one of the things that I like about Genesis. It takes an essentially unsophisticated, uneducated ex blue-collar welder like myself and gives him answers to questions that people much brighter, and better educated than I cannot answer.

    Giving "glory" to God simply indicates giving someone credit where credit is due; and "worship" basically just simply means admiration.

    It's quite natural to admire celebrities, pro athletes, and super achievers— to give them credit where credit is due —but not quite so natural to do the same for their creator.

    Anyway, point being: people either believe in intelligent design, or they don't. If they do believe, then they will admire both the originator's genius and His handiwork. If they don't believe; then they won't admire anything about Him: simple as that.

    ===============================
    What I had in mind was designating ONE specific section of the Bible...like say...Chapter 1 of Romans, and we all dig in to it. You've kind of taken it all over the place. In fact...I'll start a new thread, and see where we go.
