“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
In all His infinite glory and wisdom, God took the dust of the earth and created mankind in the image and likeness of Himself. He has blessed us with God-like qualities that are meant to display His glorious luster. He skillfully crafted our bodies and minds to withstand the crucibles in life that He uses to purify and refine us.
In Genesis, the Bible tells how God created the Earth and all of its inhabitants. The creation story is the most magnificent and sacred of all time, describing how God used his supreme authority and wisdom to bring the world to life. But, amongst all his diverse and beloved creations, he only created one species in his likeness – us.
