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 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.
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."
As we read the Bible, we find that nearly 1,700 years after creation the world had become a wicked place. In fact, the scriptures teach that man was consumed with wickedness. All of his thoughts were evil continually. Things were so bad that God saw fit to destroy man, and He was sorry that He had ever made man. Just when it seemed that all hope was lost one man found grace in the eyes of the Lord. God extended grace to Noah, but it was through faith that Noah benefited from it.
Upon completing His creation, God looked upon all that He had made and said, "It was very good." It was a world free from murderers or thieves. There was no strife, hatred, or jealousy. It was void of all pain and suffering. Unfortunately, this state did not last long. That fateful day upon which man gave into temptation and disobeyed the Creator, sin was brought into God's creation. Since that time it has had devastating effects on the entire world.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
