God does not leave an empirical bread crumb trail in order to demonstrate His existence. Rather, the only way we can really know God is through the gracious work of the Holy Spirit, who illuminates to us what God has revealed about Himself. It is only by the Spirit that we are able truly to hear the “speech” and “knowledge” poured out by the heavens God created. Only by God’s gracious self-revelation can we understand that all of “nature” is in fact creation. With that being said, Biology classes are taken by many students, which is the study of life and of its many diverse forms.
Genesis may be the most known book in the bible to refer to when talking about the origin of life, but there are also several other scripture readings. In Psalm 89:11, credit is given to God for creating the heavens and earth saying, “you founded the world and all that is in it”(Psalm 89:11, NIV). The question of identity is wanting to know what set humans apart from animals. This is another question that should come fairly easy to Christians. In Genesis 1:27, God is in the process of creating man.
o Myth 1: God created the world because there was nothing, no one and it was dark, so God created the world full of light, stars, land, animals and humans. No one knows the reason that God created the world. o Myth 2: There was no motivation to the Big Bang because it was nothing more than a unexplained random occurrence. • How did humankind come into being? o Myth 1: God first made a man named Adam, then he took one of Adams ribs are created a woman named Eve.
However, in the Bible, there is absolutely nothing in space before God created the universe. Also, the Sioux myth does not say anything about how the oceans were created. In the Bible, God took a ‘day’ to make the oceans themselves. In the Sun Creation myth, man was placed on the earth to be the
Driscoll Essay Anthony M Cook OBST 515 – Orientation to Old Testament I Gary E. Schnittjer, Ph.D. Liberty University August 23, 2013 Young Earth creationists regard the Bible as a historically accurate record of natural history. They accept its authority as the central organizing text for human life – the sole indisputable source of knowledge on every topic with which it deals. As Henry Morris, a leading young Earth creationist, explained it, "Christians who flirt with less-than-literal readings of biblical texts are also flirting with theological disaster." According to Morris, Christians must "either ... believe God's Word all the way, or not at all (Morris, HM 2000). Therefore, young Earth creationists consider the account of creation
Also Genesis says that there is only one God who created the earth and humans with words. God created humans in his image. He only wanted that mankind live happily in the Garden of Eden. The only command God gave Adam and Eve was to do not eat of the fruit of good and evil tree. In Genesis there is only on god and
Accordingly, Matthew 26:41 lets us know that “… the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (New International Version). The Natural World The natural world is a consequential part of the biblical worldview, which is our origin. Moreover, our origin, per se the natural world, materialized because of God.

In other words, God was and is the inventor, the producer, the creator, the progenitor, the maker, the author, the founder, the mastermind, the father of all creation and deity to all.
Why do we exist? The purpose of mankind according to Christianity, is to know God. Deuteronomy 11:13 states that Man is to serve and to love God with all your heart and all your soul. Christianity is a relationship with God, not just following the tenants of a religion. Religion is seen as mans attempt to reach God.
Critical Thinking Assignment Critical Thinking Assignment Billy L Goe Apologetics 104-B35 Professor Obaina September 25, 2012 Critical Thinking Assignment 1 Part One: The Question of Origin The Quran states that "Allah created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six days" (7:54). While on the surface this might seem similar to the account related in the Bible, there are some important distinctions. After completing the Creation, the Quran describes that Allah "settled Himself upon the Throne" (57:4) to oversee His work. A distinct point is made to counter the Biblical idea of a day of rest: "We created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us" (50:38). Allah is never "done" with His work, because the process of creation is ongoing.
Creationism is the belief that a god who is absolute creator of heaven and earth and made it out of nothing, by an act of free will. Creationism could lead to a number of different beliefs. Some of these beliefs include Young-Earth Creationism, Flat Earth creationism, and Modern Geocentrism. Young-Earth Creationism is the belief that the Earth was created by God a few thousand years ago, literally as described in Creation according to Genesis, within the timeframe of the understanding of biblical families. As such, it rejects not only drilling into rocks to date the age of the Earth, but also ice core dating, which hint that the Earth is far older then the timeline they go by.
