Read Genesis 1-2

“If God is omnipotent and omniscient, why didn’t he

start the universe out in the first place so it would come

out the way he wants? Why is he constantly repairing and

complaining? No, there’s one thing the Bible makes clear:

The biblical God is a sloppy manufacturer. He’s not good at

design, he’s not good at execution. He’d be out of business

if there was any competition” 

(Carl Sagan, Contact [New York: Pocket Books, Simon & Schuster, 1985]).

The world we live in feels more like a jungle than a garden but it didn't start that way. Take a moment, go back to the beginning, and imagine yourself strolling through a section of the Garden of Eden. God made it and called it "very good." 

What does the goodness of creation say about the character of our Creator?  

What does Carl Sagan overlook according to Scripture?

According to Romans 1:18-25, how did the good creation of God go from a garden to a jungle?

Take some time to discuss the unequaled greatness of our God.

In addition to His goodness, what comes to mind when you consider Him?
