|Creation Accounts, Monotheism,

|Genesis 1:1 - 2:3 opens with what is known
as the "Creation Hymn". The age-old Hebrew and Christian tradition is that
Moses, guided by God, composed Genesis out of the ancient documents existent
in his day. The book of Genesis closes some 300 years before Moses. He
could have only gotten the information by a direct revelation from God,
or through historical records handed down from his forefathers. We've already
proved writing existed before Moses.
So who wrote the "Creation Hymn"? It was
used by Moses but written long before, possibly by Abraham, or Noah, or
Enoch, or even Adam. How did the writer know what happened before man appeared?
Maybe God himself taught the hymn to Adam. Whatever the case, if
God knew from the beginning that He was going to use the Bible as a main
instrument in the Redemption of Man, why should it be so difficult to believe
that God himself gave to man the revelation of that Word?

In the beginning man had had one God; and
in the Garden of Eden, had lived in rather intimate communion with God.
But with sin and banishment, man lost his primeval knowledge of God; and,
in groping in his darkness for a solution of the mysteries of existence,
he came to worship the powers of Nature which seemed to him to be the sources
of life. Sex, because it was the means through which life came, played
a very important part in early Babylonian religion. Cuneiform inscriptions
have revealed that a large part of their liturgies were descriptions of
sex between gods and goddesses, through which, they thought, all things
came into being. Then, the Sun and Rain and various forces of nature were
deified, because on them depended the life of the world. And Kings became
deified, because they had power. Many cities and nations made their founders
their chief god. To make their gods more real, they created images to represent
them until the images themselves became worshipped as gods. Thus
man took his nosedive from Original Monotheism into the abyss of innumerable
polytheistic idolatrous cultures, some of which, in their practices, were
unspeakably vile and abominable. Even now there are religions that believe
that they can work at being a god or become one when they die.
