Sure Everyone Knows
Please read the posts, ‘In The Beginning’ and ‘A Dark Empty Wasteland’ of the blog, ‘The Scripture Of Truth’ for the discussion of the context of the Genesis chapter of the Christian Bible as well as to understand that Genesis chapter 1 is not so much about the beginning of the whole creation as it was about the placing mankind made in the image and likeness of GOD into an earth created a long, long time before that event.

Knowing The Basics [knoBsc]
Over half of those professing Christianity (i.e. of all those who make the claims to be Christian) today will agree from somewhat, to mostly, to completely with this. The rest will fully disagree, especially to the second assertion that there is only one Church of GOD.
When this work first began here in Blogger (in 2009 C.E.), Wikipedia still had the Christian Covenant listed as heretical with the faithful to the Passover Covenant listed as heretics and deviants, and the Church of GOD listed as a cult. Today (2014 C.E.) Wikipedia may no longer explicitly list the faithful to the Passover Covenant as heretics and deviants but it still implicitly discount, mock and ridicule the idea that they are the true faithful disciples of LORD JESUS, but instead Wikipedia has both explicitly and implicitly list the Great Harlot and her harlot daughters (these centuries old rapists, torturers and murderers) as being legitimate Christianity. Now anyone would (or should anyway) know that if they are legitimizing murderers then they are legitimizing the murders these murderers commit and are therefore cohorts with the murderers they legitimized. That is the reason the Christian Holy Scriptures explicitly recorded that in the Day of the LORD, GOD will destroy ninety percent of the mankind living in those soon coming days because these ninety percent of mankind would have been complicit with the torture and murder of the faithful disciples of LORD JESUS.
In every instance when religions have been invented either out of old religions; or from newer (actual, plagiarized, perceived, imagined, fantasized or claimed) understanding of the existential realm whether these are valid or not; or a varying mixture of both, the ultimate aim for the individual or group of individuals to do so has always invariably been from ego gorging lust either believing that they have supreme understanding and are supremely intelligent or that they might be able to successfully duped others into worshiping them as the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives allowing them to feed off and parasite on, all those they have been able to dupe. This is the reality of all the religions we have seen and continued to see today and from as far back as the history of mankind has some records.
So even as religion was first invented for political purpose with the one aspiring to have dominance over his peers apportioning the name of GOD to advance his claims, the commonly ritualistic requirements of religion (from many to almost all ancient religions) whether these are nominal, intensive or extensive would require the delegation of religious intercessory rituals and forms to secondary individuals or group of individuals leaving the inventors or plagiarizers of religions to focus on their primary objectives of political (and military) dominance and governance (the manipulation of the power dynamics to retain dominance).
Christianity – Know The Basics [christianity]
If you think that GOD making an agreement with HIS creature, mankind, is a ridiculous idea, please first read through the Christian Holy Scriptures (in its numerous translations as the Christian Bible). Then read the post, ‘The New Covenant Part I’ to understand why would the ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD who absolutely owns all things and can absolutely do whatever HE pleases at any and all time to anyone and anything, would want to make binding agreements with mankind.
For the complete discussion on why an all powerful, all knowing, all everywhere Creator who could force all His creature without exception to absolutely totally obey and perform all that HE required of them at every single and all instances of their existence and consciousness, but have not and have never ever done so, please the read the book sized post discussion, ‘Readers Question – Why Do Innocents Suffer If GOD Is Just’ which fully explains why GOD would allow evil to so completely filled the hearts and minds of both mankind (Genesis 6:5) and many of the Angels of Heaven (Revelation 12:7 – 9).
When GOD first called Moses, HE did so with a paranormal sign to get Moses undivided attention. When HE sent Moses to free the Israelite from their Egyptian bondage HE did not get Moses to raise up a large army to do battle against the Egyptians even as HE could have easily done that. But with miracle upon miracle GOD had led Moses and the ancient Israelite, beginning with the plagues on the Egyptians to their being fed for forty years with Manna that rained down from heaven. Throughout the time GOD used Moses to lead the Israelite from the time Moses went to free them from their Egyptian bondage until the Israelite finally took possession of the Promise Land led by by Joshua and Caleb, GOD had accompanied these men of GOD with paranormal signs such that none of the Israelite would need to wonder if they were actually being led by GOD.
When GOD sent HIS only Begotten SON born as a SON of man to mediate the New Covenant that would replace the Old Covenant which would end when the LORD GOD of that Old Covenant would die as ‘the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world’ in order to mediated the Everlasting Covenant with HIS death, GOD did not send JESUS as the MESSIAH without accompanying paranormal signs to attest and authenticate the role of JESUS as had been foretold and prophesied by many of the Prophets of GOD during the Old Testament period. During the time when GOD (the WORD who would later be born as a SON of man) sent Moses as the mediator of the Old Covenant with GOD (the WORD) and to free the Israelite HE had sent powerful and frightening signs to testify as an assurance to the Israelite that they should have nothing to fear with GOD protecting them. During the time of JESUS ministry as a SON of man preparatory to HIS death to institute the New Covenant, GOD accompanied JESUS work with a different set of paranormal signs to testify to GOD's love and desire to have mercy on all mankind, wanting a forever life, well being and good for all man. And with these same paranormal signs, GOD confirmed the testimony of LORD JESUS in all the Apostles and men of GOD during the beginning of the Apostolic years who would testify to the Grace and Salvation that GOD had accomplished ordained and instituted in the Everlasting Covenant made in the BLOOD and death of the MESSIAH as ‘the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world’.
In this just as JESUS was The CHRIST, The ANOINTED of GOD the FATHER to be ‘LORD of Lords and KING of Kings’, so also all true Christians are also Anointed through the laying on of hands to be Lords and Kings with and under the LORD JESUS when HE returns in HIS Second Advent to restore the Kingdom of Heaven to the Promise Land.
Having The HOLY SPIRIT As The Only Definitive Definition
But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
Well, yes and no.
