The mission of The Genesis Project is threefold: To promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to offer a perspective on origins, and to provide an avenue to recovery. It may be surprising, but our susceptibility to falling into addictions is a great evidence that God exists. The Bible speaks of bondage and enslavement, not to slave owners, but to what is called the nature of the flesh.
Our intent is to offer sound teaching about the Gospel. We acknowledge its theological origin in Genesis upon the fall of Adam and Eve. We affirm the Gospel as the very means of deliverance from any type of bondage due to the reconciling work of Jesus Christ in the New Covenant. Eve was deceived. Paul warns us to take heed lest we too become deceived, a very real and ever-present concern. Denial that we are creatures wrought into existence by a benevolent Creator is the foremost deception upon humankind.
False knowledge can leave us vulnerable to behaviors that expose us to addictions of many sorts. Recovery, however, takes more than merely correcting our beliefs. Often, it involves long-term commitment to sobriety programs that provide a source of encouragement, support, fellowship, and guidance for those who want to change their lives for the better. It’s no secret that addictions ruin lives. After being ensnared, it’s only a matter of time before job loss, marital difficulty, and worse. Severe addicts soon find themselves spiraling into depths of despair as they isolate themselves from friends and loved ones. The Genesis Project is here to help by acting as a link to a wide variety of time-tested ministries.
Here are a few thoughts to set you on your way. Know that God accepts you exactly the way you are, but he loves you too much to leave you that way. Know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose (Rom 8:28). Many an addict has found God in their lowest moment and lived to tell of his great mercy, testifying to a better and more meaningful life than before they fell into addiction. Please join with us in furthering God’s intent to love his children, especially those in need of freedom.
