"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth" (Gen. 1:1). The first thing we learn from the Bible is the truth concerning the beginning of things. Outside of the eternal Godhead, everything has a beginning. What we learn about the beginning of the universe is that it began with God. As has been written many times over in bible study materials, we have in this verse a scientific argument for creation. The majority of scientists agree that in order for life to exist the following five principles must also exist - Time, Force, Energy, Space, and Matter. We have all of these in the very first verse of the Bible: "In the beginning" (TIME), "God" (FORCE), "created" (ENERGY), "the heavens" (SPACE), "and the earth" (MATTER). And so God in His infinite wisdom provided for our weak human minds more than just an "I said so" with regard to the beginning itself. He left us with a tangible piece of information about our existence.

And so we launch this blog with the same hope, that out of a simple opening word, with time and patience it will become something more. "In the beginning..."
