Wilhelm Leibniz argued that everything that exists has an explanation of its existence. Therefore, the universe has an explanation of its existence (“Lecture 4,” 2018). The origin of the universe and life is God himself. The creation story in the first two chapters of the bible is how Christians believe that the universe was created. People’s beliefs and interpretations of the origin of the universe not only differ but they also impact the lives of those individuals through their worldviews.
I feel the strongest about designer babies. Based on my oversevation I fell that designer babies are good and bad. I believe that designer babies are bad for many reasons. I believe this because in the bible it says “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” The bible also says “This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.” Finally it says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” All three of these versus tell us that god created humans the way he wanted to.
When we ask people about their thoughts on how the world was created, the first idea that comes to mind is the story of Genesis. Most people generally assume that there is only one account of creation, the account that portrays God as the sole creator since in the Genesis account he creates heaven, earth, man/woman, and other living things. However, Genesis is not the only face of creation because religious texts from different cultures tell us otherwise. In ancient near east religions, there are two creation myths that give their own different accounts. While some details of the Genesis account are similar to the Enuma Elish of Babylon and the Memphite Theology of Egypt, each account individually brings their own nationalistic pride and personal touch.
When Jesus Became God is written by Richard Rubenstein suggests that Jesus was divine, but they do not insist upon it. Hundreds of years after Jesus ' death, the Church councils made Jesus ' divinity a central tenet of belief among many of his followers. When Jesus Became God is a narrative of the history of the Christians ' early efforts to define Christianity by convening councils and writing creeds. Rubenstein is most interested in the battle between Arius, Presbyter of Alexandria, and Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria. Arius the leader of the Arians said that Christ did not share God 's nature but was the first creature God created.
Christ is a perfect image of God because He is sinless. In the scriptures, He is referred as the Adam before the fall or the “last Adam” (King James Bible, 1 Cor. 15. 45). Christ came after the Fall to bring humans back to the original state, the pre-fallen state, which was a state that Adam and Eve were living in the presence of God; they were so close to God, they could hear “the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden” (Gen.3.8).
To begin, a commonly accepted creation story relate to those expressed in the Book of Genesis. These beginning chapters capture the work of God as he begins to bring about the universe first, then plants, animals, and eventually humans. Genesis discusses the creation and eventual fall of Adam and Eve, who used their free will given to them by God, to make a decision that displeased him. But, it must be acknowledged that in Mirandola 's effort to create the idea that humans were created for their own purpose, one must explore how he elevated humans ' thoughts about themselves. Through his humanist ideas he promoted the ideas of dignity and individual self-worth.
The second word in the statement ‘us’, proves 2 separate beings… not one. The statement itself; to make man in God’s image, if there were three entities that made this omnipotent creator who he was, wouldn’t man be made up the same? No humans of any religious domination claim themselves to be a trinity! The strongest argument against the dogmatic doctrine of the trinity comes from the Gospel according to Matthew, 3rd chapter verses 15 through 17, when Jesus was baptized. The Gospel clearly states when Jesus was baptized, the heavens were opened, the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove upon Jesus, and the voice of God came from the sky claiming “This is my ‘son’, the beloved, with whom I am well pleased”.
The Holy Scripture records in John, "But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written." (John 21:25 RSV). Jesus was the Book in the flesh. When Jesus was born, He came to earth in the purest form of the Holy Spirit. In fact, the Holy Spirit is Christ.
Religious books and preachers always claim to be based on the word of God, and sometimes testify to God's action or instructions to commit despicable behavior. That can never be true. Further, they claim man was created in God's own image even though no one has ever seen God. That cannot be true either. Obviously, man has created God in his own image to produce organized religion for his own ends.
Martin Luther would have been more headstrong and believed that Darwinism was more fake science that could not truly be proven. These two men’s beliefs are exactly where we stand today. There are people who believe in evolution and think the Bible cannot be taken literally, rather metaphorically to learn the lessons that God
Falk seems to be oblivious of the assumptions used in debates on origins, and of the difference between data and understandings of data. No one has a way to go back in time and study our history, so all ideas must be based upon assumptions. Those assumptions are the foundation of our worldview, which is our central belief about where the world came from and how it became what it is today. The Bible has many verses about the timing of creation and God’s hand in it. God spoke the Universe, heavens, Earth, life, and man into existence (Genesis 1; Psalm 33:6, 9; 148:5; John 1:1-3).
