The Bible can be put into three headings:

God is the former (Genesis 1 – 2).

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). Since God created us, we are accountable to Him. If we never acknowledge the creation, we will never see that we are sinners in need of a Savior.

Satan is the deformer (Genesis 3:1-7).

Called the “hinge of the Bible,” this passage is crucial. If it were not in the Bible, the whole book would be changed. We finish chapter 2 with heavenly bliss in the garden, but verse 8 shows the creatures hiding in shame. What happened? Sin changes everything.

Jesus Christ is the transformer (Genesis 3:15).

From Genesis 3:8, God is beginning to redeem His people through the coming seed of woman. “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). —Author Unknown

“Study to show thyself approved . . . ” —2 Timothy 2:15
