Creationism is the theory that man, the earth, and the rest of the universe was originally created rather than randomly exploding from nothingness into chance existence. We reside on the surface of a small superbly crafted, autonomous self regulating space vehicle. Together with survival, conquest and death we bear witness to beauty, fragrances, love and music. Think about this. Mathematics, philosophy, springtime, depravity, farming, courtship, quasars, and iphones; all came from nothingness?,
coal mines that are still in working order simply because it’s too much work to get those machines back out and it may be cheaper on the company to leave it there than to bring it back out. Generations before saved everything, many times even if it was broken. My parents have in their attic, right now, the first set of worn out tires from my 1987 Firebird. These tires are bald and actually have the steal belts hanging out of them. Why? Maybe it’s for sentimental reasons? Perhaps the kept them
In Genesis 1 the story describes how the animals were created. In Genesis 2 it discusses naming the animals. Genesis 1: 25: And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind.

Before the sun and the moon existed, there was light and darkness. God had to create the light. I want to tell you that in the future, in the "new Jersalem" (heaven) that there we will not need the sun or moon anymore for light. Instead there will be light from the glory of God and the lamp will be Jesus (See Revelation 21:23).
ordinary candle giving light but light which represents Christ, the Light of the world. Light has very special significance, Christ recall that Jesus said “I am the light of the world, no follower of mine, shall ever walk in darkness; no he shall possess the light of life” (John 8:12). Therefore the light is a symbol of faith, truth, wisdom, virtue, grace, the divine life, charity and the sacred presence which flows from Christ himself.

Christianity is the belief that God is our one true God, that he made our world with his bare hands and His Son is Jesus Christ. God made man and animal, light and dark, water and land. We believe that God gave his only Son to save our world from sin.. Origins of Christianity Christianity originated in the city of Jerusalem in present-day Israel.

The Steady State Model claims the universe has always expanded at a uniform rate with no beginning or end. Christians believe the universe was created by God and everything in it according to The Holy Bible. Some say the world will end in fire and some say in ice.
what their purpose and plan was in the grand universe. Through research, studies, science and technology, man has been extremely powerful in such a short existence on this planet. Man has developed laws of nature, machines, computers, satellites, space shuttles, and weapons strong enough to destroy all known human existence. Man is amazing. Man can invent life-changing inventions but cannot ‘create’. To create is to cause something new to exist. All that man has made was from something that already
In the beginning God create the heavens and the earth. At the time the earth was like a void, darkness everywhere consuming the planet, and God said four words, “and let there be light.” Then there on that planet earth God separated light from dark. He blessed the light and called the light day, and he cursed the dark and called it night. The second day has arrived. God then said the waters from waters, and called to the expansion of heaven. The third day came. God wanted to fill the gap in the water
The Gospel of John and Light. In the Gospel of John we see in the first four verses that he makes a very powerful statement linking the Word, God, Life and the Light as all being one, a person. He does this by saying, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race.” (JN 1:1-4)
