CHAPTER TWELVE: EVOLUTION PROBLEM
This is a continuation of my earlier study on Gen. 1:1 which
presented the starting point of the coming into existence of God and the
creation of time and the cosmos of existence. God as a family was now
in action to create homes for his Sons so that He can live among
them. This is what a God who is defined as love will do. Creation of
Sons invariably involves problems consequent of the independence and the
space that will be demanded by the children to grow. It is in this
context we should be looking at the Biblical narrations.
This study concentrates on the initial creation story as represented in Gen
1:2 to Gen 2:3 on how God went about creating a special place to the
residence of Adam and Eve away from other corruptions which may have caused
by the elder brothers within the Sons of God.
The story is certainly not intended to be a scientific presentation of the
physical laws and structure of created cosmos. It simply is the story
of how God started to build a home for humans on earth and told in terms
and language understood by them in their state of growth.
Because of this a lot of controversy has developed on the creation.
My attempt is not to clear the controversy but to explain all variations of
the problem and their solutions suggested by various scholars through the
ages. So you will be entering into a maze. Enjoy the maze. If
you find it enjoyable, I have met my target.
