Part 2 :: Buried Truths of Origins

This part of the Framework course deals with the very foundation of biblical faith—origins. In this study you will see how the universe around you and even your heart inside you have always borne clear testimony to your Creator. Their testimony is so clear that the carnal mind (being always at enmity with God) has had to suppress this truth to try to avoid responsibility before Him. Thus paganism, whether ancient or modern in form, has a powerful ethical motive in viciously and unrelentingly attacking the first eleven chapters of Genesis as "mythological."
