Identify two ways your culture attempts to deny the truth found in the Scripture below...

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:27-28)


  1. This verse is a call to take responsibility and most of our culture is about shucking responsibility and placing the blame on others. It also has us, the children of God, ruling and not allowing others to take that on. We have to step up and take action in whatever ways we can.

  2. To me, I hear things such as:
    1) "If God created us, then who created God?"
    2) Then they figure that Adam and Eve's family would of had to inbreed to create the world.

    To #1, it is a good question, but who am I to question the almighty, all-powerful God? I can't even explain him he is too great so I'll revert to Proverbs 3:5.

    To #2, they were probably eating paleo and weren't exposed to the chemicals of today, so it would have been completely fine ;). No, I'm not sure on that one but there was inbreeding later on in the old testament.

  3. Humanism teaches that from evolution came man and woman and that we are all animals thus equal in the sense we all come from the same ancestors. You can see this as animals are lifted up to have the same rights as people. And people are lowered to the status of animals. But nothing can be further from the truth! Genesis tells us where we come from, who made us and how important we are in this world compared to everything else.

  4. 1. Evolution
    2. If you get just the right amount of money, cars, gadgets you will be happy.

  5. Evolution is taught as fact - undisputed. When that happens, humans are reduced to the level of accidental beings with no purpose, no soul, no responsibility for our own actions.

  6. 1) Rationalization of un-biblical behavior, "everybody does it"
    2) Ignoring the Word "the bible wasn't written for modern times"
    Really?!? Scares me that people can be soooo mislead :(!!
    Our Savior is the only permanent force in out lives!!
