    This ONE true GOD exists as three persons: GOD the FATHER (Acts 4:4); GOD the SON (John 1-1:3); GOD the HOLY SPIRIT (Ps 104:30)
    God exists in three persons who are equal in their attributes and yet individual and distinct in their offices and ministries. Matt 3:16-17; Eph 1:3-14; 2Thess 2:13-14; Titus 3:4-6

    Genesis Chapter 1 and 2 are not 2 separate creation accounts. Genesis 1 is a summary and 2 goes into greater detail.

    Some read Gen. 1:2 as - there was a 'first' earth - and it was destroyed, then God created a 2nd earth on which we live. No one 'knows' if God created more than one earth.

But, when it came to His 'pinnacle' creation - He got His 'hands' into the dust and lovingly created man - because He loved man; man was to be a friend to God, they were to commune together, have fellowship. I'm praying for you to see the bigger picture - of His love for

    We have been taught that GOD "spoke" everything into existence. The Scriptures do not support this. Genesis teaches that HE "created", "moved", "said", "saw" "divided", called:, "made", "set"
