Intro

Who am I and why am I here?

Those are a couple of great questions to ask and pursue answers to because the answers to those questions matter in how you live your life.

Asking good questions and finding truth in answers is why we are in this series called the Creed. Truth helps us to live life well.

So when thinking about those questions that I asked a moment ago, what if the answer to that question was “I am just a random conglomerate of cells that just happened to come together in such a way to spark life, and those same cells will someday cease and I will cease. Now if true, that would affect how we live life.

My purpose might be to live life for this moment, unconcerned about the future or anything beyond this life, because all we have is right now. Why would I care about other people? Why would I care about anything but my own temporal pleasure?

But if the answer to that question is “I have been created in the image of an eternal God with purpose and to live for eternity,” well, that would change things in how I live, wouldn’t it?

So to answer the question of who am I and why am I here, I first need to begin with

How did I get here? Because without the answer to that question, I really can’t answer the other 2.

So How did I get here?

And by “How did I get here?’ I am really asking how did man get here and how did anything even get here?

The answer to that question and what we believe about that affects our entire life, so it is a very important question to ask and answer.

Now, in the world today, there are 2 predominate views on how life and everything began. There is the Biblical Creation account and there is an evolutionary account with the evolutionary account of creation gaining more and more ground with each passing year.

So , what do people look at to determine what they believe about how life began? Well the reality is, is that we all have the same evidence to look at. So that is what we are going to do today.

Transition

We are going to examine some of the evidence available to determine if we can believe the doctrinal view that God is the creator of all things and all life or if it just does not fit with reality.

We are going to start at the very beginning of the Bible, in Genesis 1:20.

Slide

Now, in the first 19 verses, The Bible describes God’s creation of the universe and the world as we know it. And then it goes on to describe the origin of life from the Bible’s perspective.
