Here's The Deal

These few verses sure cause big debates in science class. Unfortunately there are no quick or easy answers in the creation and evolution controversy. Believers in evolution claim the world suddenly exploded into existence billions of years ago—pits of slime somehow sprouted legs and started growing chest hair. It's a compelling story for those who don't believe in God or the Bible. The Bible teaches that God created the earth, and through Him all things were made—including you.

Actually, it takes less faith to believe God created this world and you than it does to believe your complex mind and body evolved from a "big bang" and a drop of ooze.

God created you in His image. Spend time thinking about that truth and thank God that your uniqueness is no accident!
