When God created the first man he determined that it was not good for him to be alone. This man needed a companion, therefore, God created woman. After creating the woman, God commanded both the man and the woman to be fruitful and multiply. Thus, we have the beginning of the human race. God created us to have social interaction with one another. Through this interaction we form relationships. In His word, God gives us a blueprint for relationships.
The first time the word mother appears in the Bible is in (Genesis 3:20). God made Adam, and then he took a rib from his side and made Eve. Since that time every man or woman has been brought into this world because of a mother. Throughout the Bible we read of mothers, both good and bad. A mother may choose to be many things, but there are none as great as a godly mother.
Children are to be taught the word of God. This teaching is not to be half-hearted or neglected. Instead, the Bible states that it is to be done diligently. In other words, the teaching is to be done with care and persistence. Who better to fill this role than the father? Children need diligent dads to be the men God intends for them to be.
The Bible emphatically teaches that God ordained marriage. Marriage did not originate with man. It is not something that a group of people just thought up one day and decided would be good for society. Nor is it something that can evolve or change as man desires. Marriage was put in place by God in the beginning.
In 1859, Charles Darwin published his book On the Origin of Species. The book outlined Darwin's theory of evolution in which he claimed one species gave rise to another through the process of natural selection. Darwin stopped just short of explicitly implying his theories to the development of man, but the clear implication was that man too had followed the same process as the rest of nature. In 1871, Darwin published his second book on evolutionary theory titled The Descent of Man. In this book he applied his theories to the development of man stating that man, like the rest of nature, had developed from simple life forms over the process of time. How does this line up with the teachings of the Bible?
The Devil is a real being. He is not the creation of some movie director in Hollywood nor was he thought up by an author of some fiction book. He is real and he is evil. Jesus states that the Devil was a murderer from the beginning and that the truth does not exist in him. Yet, as we read these words questions arise in our minds. Who is this villain? Where did he come from? How long has he existed? Has he always been evil? What is his purpose and how does he accomplish it?
On the sixth day of creation, God made man. Prior to this event God simply spoke and the rest of creation came into being. With man, however, a Divine Council took place. God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit discussed what was to be the crown jewel of their creation. Man was to be different from the rest of creation. God made man to be different, wonderful, the most excellent of all His creation. God made man in His image, after His likeness.
The Flood is a prominent story in the Bible. Four of the first eleven chapters in the book of Genesis are devoted to recording this great event. In fact, more scripture is devoted to recording the flood than to Creation. Next to Creation, the Flood of Noah's day is the greatest single event in the history of the world.
The events that transpired in the Garden of Eden are foundational to a proper understanding of the word of God. In fact, if you consider all of the different beliefs that people have today they are determined by what they believe about the account of Adam and Eve. What exactly happened in that Garden scene and how does it affect us today? We want to look at Adam and Eve's experience in the Garden of Eden and determine from the Bible what it means for us today.
No other subject shows the controversy between conflicting worldviews better than the dinosaurs. What are we to make of these creatures? Are they mentioned in the Bible? What happened to them? We intend to discuss these questions and more as we consider the topic "The Day Man Saw Dinosaurs."
