Why Are We Here - Creation

Basics of our beliefs series.  What makes humans different from animals?  We have a soul and are accountable to God.  We have the ability reflect on why we are here and how we got here.  The how is answered by "Gods Says."  Humans are created in divine image.  We are created for relationship with God.

  • In God's eyes All Lives Matter.  It should be the same in our eyes that All Lives Matter.

  • Human life is greater than that of an animal.  This is NOT a license for abuse.

  • Dominion over creation is a responsibility that requires good stewardship.

  • Micah 6:8 - He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

"As you move from the literal understanding of Genesis to the full acceptance of evolution each step away it asks less of God and attributes less to him."  Wayne
