Genesis 1-11

Sermon Title

Genesis 1-11 (22 episodes)
25 Jan 2015 - 11 Oct 2015

The opening chapters of Genesis are some of the most controversial in the whole Bible. Used by some as evidence for the proven fallibility of the Bible, whilst claimed by others to show the current scientific history of the universe is completely wrong, they contain much that is hard for us to believe or to understand.  In this series we explore the real message of Genesis 1-11 and discover that these ancient writings speak powerfully to us today, dealing with some of our most important questions and speaking into some of the most frustrating aspects of our lives.

Can I make a Difference?

Genesis 1-11 | Part 22 | Genesis (11v10-12v4)

Event Image
Most Christians know we are called to make an incredible difference to our communities as we share God's love with the people around us, but many believers just don't feel up to the task. It can be very demotivating: if failure is inevitable then why bother trying?

Flood Defence

Genesis 1-11 | Part 18 |

Event Image
Noah and the Flood must be one of the best known Bible stories but is it really believable? If it is, what does it tell us about what we are like today, what God is like and how God still offers the rescue we need.

Getting Back on Track

Genesis 1-11 | Part 17 | Genesis (4:25-5:32)

Event Image
Why is often a struggle to keep going with anything worthwhile in life? It could be healthy eating, fitness, staying on top of finances or spending quality time with those we love. It could be something spiritual like praying regularly, Bible reading or obeying God in daily life. In Genesis we see how people failed right from the beginning but God was determined to get them back on track. What does God want to teach us about getting back on track in our own lives in the things that matter most?

We're not Abel

Genesis 1-11 | Part 16 | Genesis (4:1-26)

Event Image
What does life outside the garden of Eden looks like? Things turn ugly as violence and vengeance emerge with a tragic murder. As a further exile is imposed, is there any hope for a way back without compromising justice?

Banished from the Garden

Genesis 1-11 | Part 15 | Genesis (3v22-24)

Event Image
Why does God seem so distant sometimes? Why does life seem so imperfect, even after we have become Christians? And why do we really need Jesus anyway? Can't we just come to God by ourselves just as we are?

The Cost of Victory

Genesis 1-11 | Part 14 | Genesis (3v14,15)

Event Image
Christians are often surprised when they are not popular: after all, why would anyone dislike people whose aim is to love everyone and to share good news? But there is more going on than just a few people taking offence - there is a hidden war raging and victory will not be cheap.

Naked and Ashamed

Genesis 1-11 | Part 12 | Genesis (3v7-13, 21)

Event Image
We live in a culture where people go to great lengths to prevent and assuage negative feelings of guilt or shame. We want to help people feel good about themselves, regardless of anything they might have done. Is this really helpful, and is there a better way to handle these unpleasant emotions?

Be like God

Genesis 1-11 | Part 11 | Genesis (3v1-6)

Event Image
Why is it said that forbidden fruit always tastes sweeter? Why is it so hard sometimes to do the right thing, even when we have the best intentions? Is there an solution, or are we just doomed to fail when we try to resist temptation?

The Snake

Genesis 1-11 | Part 10 | Genesis (3v1)

Event Image
What, if anything, can we learn from the story of a talking snake trying to trick people into eating forbidden fruit? Is it an outdated and irrelevant relic from a gullible past? We find instead that it sheds light on much of what goes on inside our heads and hearts as we also face questions of truth and reality.

Made for Relationships

Genesis 1-11 | Part 9 | Genesis (2:18-25)

Event Image
Friendships can give us great joy in life as well as great pain. The same is true of marriage. Why are relationships worth pursuing and how does God help us in them and through them?

Male and Female, Made Equal and Different

Genesis 1-11 | Part 8 | Genesis (2v18-25)

Event Image
How important are our gender differences? Are they just physical plus what our culture has told us about how we should behave? In this message we look at what Genesis tells us about being male and female, as well as covering questions about whether Adam and Eve were real people or the first people.

In the Garden

Genesis 1-11 | Part 7 | Genesis (2v4-17)

Event Image
The story of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden is pretty well known, even by people who know very little else of the Bible. But what should we make of it today? Is it just a fairy story that has no relevance to my life today?

Genesis 1-11 | Part 6 | Genesis (2v1-3)

Event Image
Have you ever felt like you can't keep up with the pace of life? Ever felt that there is just too much to do in too little time and you have too little energy to do it? Is your to-do-list constantly expanding despite your best efforts? Maybe you need some rest?

What are we here for?

Genesis 1-11 | Part 4 | Genesis (1v27-28)

Event Image
Many people have no idea what their life is for. Many more are convinced that it's just what you make of it. If we have a designer, wouldn't it be great to hear what he says we're here for?

What does it mean to be human?

Genesis 1-11 | Part 3 | Genesis (1:26-27)

Event Image
How does the bible define the human race and what does true humanity look like? What implications does this have for how we view ourselves and how we view other people? Genesis 1 is a game-changing revelation for us all.

What does Genesis 1 really tell us?

Genesis 1-11 | Part 2 | Genesis (1v1-2v3)

Event Image
All Christians believe that God created everything that exists, even if they don't agree on how he did it. But if Genesis chapter one isn't primarily intended to be a step-by-step guide to assembling a universe what does it actually tell us? And what difference does the belief in God as Creator make to how we view the world?

How did it all begin?

Genesis 1-11 | Part 1 | Genesis (1v1-2v3)

Event Image
For many people modern science provides a complete description of how we came to be here and the Genesis account is thoroughly irrelevant. Is it possible to reconcile these two seemingly contradictory descriptions of our origins, or is conflict over science and faith always inevitable?
