Thursday Thoughts - March 30

Those who read Genesis 1 as basically a God ordering of creation account often seem to ignore the natural world informer, which may be telling us that things are not so unequivocally simple. When interpreting Genesis 1 it simply won’t do to read the text alone, even in its ancient Near Eastern context. The time has come, if we are to better interpret this story, to also interact with the natural world and then see where that takes us. Creation may not be so orderly after all, and if it’s not, Genesis 1 will have to be read in a new light.
