HOW DO WE LOOK AT MAN?

The idea of calling man a "primate" is evidence that the evolutionists control much of the thinking in Science. Lumping man with ape "because of the refined development of the hands" has been popular for a long time, but that doesn't make it right. Humans are created in the image of God from the very beginning of the creation. The Gospel of Mark says, "But from the beginning of creation, God MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE" (Mk. 10:6). That is significant information for the Christian because the Scriptures place man, man and woman, as being created in the beginning with everything else. The evolutionists love to talk about the billions of years it took for the earth to form and develop life, but they don't know. I can be as scientific as the next person, but I can't buy into any "science" that negates and nullifies the great miraculous deeds of the Bible. In six literal days He made the world and on the 7th, He rested. If we have adopted the theistic evolution view of man, that God allowed man to slowly evolve through billions of incrementally small and successive positive mutations, then it is very hard to reconcile that with the Scriptures. Man is not the cousin of the great ape. Instead man is the child of God, created in His image. That can't be said about any "primate". Man only has purpose and value because God made him that way. Evolution devalues man and all life as being the result of natural, purposeless, accidents. Christianity acknowledges the value of man. So how we look at man is important: an accident or or the pinnacle of God's creation.

  1. I agree. One of my teachers here at Oklahoma Christian teaches astronomy on the basis that the Earth is billions of years old. He thinks that God started the process and allowed it to happen over long periods of time. Most of the students in the class don't have a clue what's going on anyways so they believe anything he says. I think it is sad that even the church is buying into something that goes against the Bible.
