In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
“In the beginning “is perhaps the most significant phrase in the entire Bible. There was a time when there was nothing—no creation, no life, no solar system, and no universe. The word “genesis” means beginning. What it underscores is that life has a starting point in time. This truth is a critical element in understanding the biblical world view. From the instant creation began, life became linear, not cyclical. And because we’re not caught in an incessant replaying of the same tune, as with the irrational idea of reincarnation, life has direction and meaning.
