Genesis is a AWESOME book because every part of humankind is covered in this book. Although the events of Genesis happened before any of us were born, when we take the time to study this book we can see every person, every situation, every mistake, every victory, every hurt, every worry, every plight, has been made within its verses. Now this sounds like a bold statement especially since we now in the age of technology and “whatever makes me happy” but when you look at the situations and how they relate to the relationship between God and mankind we can see that nothing has really changed in all of these years. And once we accept that fact we can understand and also accept that mankind is doomed without Jesus Christ as its Savior.
