Genesis, the first book of the Bible, presents us with some very challenging teachings and accounts. What are we to make of them? Do we interpret the writings literally? What should we make of the sexual acts found in its pages that we would now consider immoral, such as incest and rape, in the context of modern Christian morality? Why does it seem like God gives Man free will, but later is shown to be orchestrating events? To discuss and try to make sense of all of this and more, I’m joined by my friend Hendrik, a non-denominational Christian for whom the Bible is at the core of faith in God and Jesus Christ and has played an important part of his life since his ‘conversion’ to Christianity in adulthood.
