Accidental or on purpose? Evolved over billions of years or carved out by the finger of God? Did man evolve from the lower forms of life or did God create him from the clay of earth and breath life into him?
Creation or Evolution are they mutually exclusive or could both be at work in a cause and effect type of scenario? Deep questions that have troubled man though out the ages. It is difficult to look at the order of the universe and believe that it is all just a cosmic accident. Push the earth inches one way or another and life cannot be supported. Straighten it out so that it does not tilt on its axes and we lose the four seasons we now enjoy.
The Bible opens with the book of beginnings: Genesis 1:1 In the Beginning God created the heavens and the Earth." Although the unfolding verses and chapters continue the story it is really only a glimpse or snapshot of the massive creative work of God in the universe. A passage in the book of Job 38 that asks: Where were you when I laid the earths foundations?,,,while the morning stars sang together and the angels shouted for joy?"
