In the beginning was the Word,
And the Word was with God,
And the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through Him.

Without Him was not anything made that was made.

In Him was Life,

And the Life was the Light of men.

The Light shines in the darkness,

And the darkness has not overcome it.

These words from the Gospel of John, chapter 1, are the prime truth of all mankind. These words dramatically restate the creation account from Genesis 1. These words tell us who was responsible for all creatures and everything in this physical world.

If we start chipping away at the claim made here and in Genesis, we establish the basis, then, for denying all other truth claims of these Scriptures. If God in Jesus Christ did not create us, if we are simply the result of some electrochemical synthesis, undirected, completely random, what then can be the basis for moral conduct and actions? From what authority do those spring?
