So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. -Genesis 1:27 Let me start by saying a few things: -I am a Christian. I am saved by the blood of Jesus Christ who died upon a cross on a Friday, and rose from the grave the next Sunday. Jesus Christ was an actual man, and we have much more than just the Bible to support this fact. My beliefs regarding creation have no bearing on my belief in Jesus Christ. -I appreciate the discussion that my last post created. I really do, and some really well-thought out arguments were presented. I got a message from a good friend who simply asked me why I had posted my thoughts on facebook. Here's why: I want people to know that not all Christians believe the same. I have fervent and real faith in the saving power of grace found through Jesus Christ, but I don't believe the earth was made in six 24-hour days. I think for too long, we Christians have told people that you can not be a Christian unless you believe in both of those. That's bullcrap. Christ is what makes a Christian, not creationism. My point is not to convince people who are creationists to drop their beliefs and adopt mine. Instead I want to show the rest of the world that not all of us have a problem with the majority of the scientific community's interpretations of scientific findings. -Evolution has had some moral implications placed on it that are entirely unfair. Just because someone believes that modern creatures have evolved from earlier creatures does not mean that they believe human beings are worthless. When you classify all people who believe in evolution as "godless" or "humanistic" is to be judging the state of their spiritual hearts. Jesus had a little thing to say about that, brothers and sisters (Matthew 7:1).
