The world in which we live can be best characterized as that of growing chaos and confusion, showing up in growing numbers of those experiencing anxiety and depression, suicides, mass shootings, drug use, racial tensions, climate crisis, and polarizing political views. This is just the fruit of the lingering effects of the human philosophies of existentialism, postmodernism, and post Christendom in America, reinforced by 24-hour social media and news cycles. Our world has gotten caught up in changing definitions of marriage, sexuality, gender, and personhood. While political correctness hopes to ensure people have the right to ‘live in their truth’, the polls show that people feel the weight of this chaos. What has added to the confusion is that traditionally held places in which truth could be sought are now no longer available. So what is the answer?
The Book of Genesis, the first book in the Bible, speaks directly to the confusion of our day. Though the title of the book literally means ‘beginnings’, this is a book not just about creation, but about the Creator’s order, design, purpose, and meaning, all that our world is searching for. The book points to the realities of human existence, what has gone wrong, and how God intends to f ix it.
This series is designed to speak to the issues of our day as opposed to ignoring them. Our prayer is that this study will help to provide answers and to get your roots deep into the bedrock of God’s Word so that you will be able to withstand the current headed in the opposite direction of peace and rest. Blessing is found when we f ind ourselves in alignment with God’s creative order and design, believing in our God who is able to REDEEM THE CHAOS.
