“These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood” (Genesis 10:32 NKJV). There is not an Evolutionist who can account for the different “nations” on earth. According to the Bible, however, all “nations” came from one family stock. God “created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created” (Genesis 5:2 NKJV), “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20 NKJV). After the worldwide flood, only through Noah, his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives, “from these the whole earth was populated” (Genesis 9:18-19 NKJV). Truly, God “has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26 NKJV).

Not just another animal

Man is not just another animal, but God’s most precious creation, made in his image. "More valuable than many sparrows." Lk 12.6-7

I refuse to accept the view that mankind…

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

Martin Luther King Jr., American civil rights leader (1929-1968), from his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech

God put man

My latest tweet and Facebook update:

We put fish in a bowl or, at best, an aquarium. God put man in a universe, with stars, a sun and a moon for lights, with mountains to climb.

I’ve said before that the pagan looks at the universe and thinks man so very small, but the saint sees the size of the universe as God’s statement of how important is this creature he made in his own image.
