God’s Fingerprints in LIFE!

 

In the beginning God created … Genesis 1:1

… Thus says the LORD, Who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: Zechariah 12:1

Today: God’s Fingerprints in LIFE!

 

The year was 1953: … … …

 

DNA is the language of life!

  • Codes for over 50,000 proteins in our bodies …
  • Hair color … skin density (we’re all the same ‘color’!) …
  • Eye color … organ formation … photoreceptors … enzymes …
  • It’s a language! … like a HUGE book … really, like a computer program …
  • It had to be divinely created, since ‘information’ – especially such complex information – never arises by change …
  • The ‘information’ was present at the beginning … mutations only result in lost information, not new information …

 

The inevitable result of rejecting God as Creator: the descent of man/society:

  • Romans 1:18-32 …
  • If there is ‘design,’ there must be a ‘Designer’ …
  • If there is morality, there must be a moral Lawgiver …

Þ The crux is that we are accountable to Him …

 

The ‘Fix’: back to God/the Bible/the Moral Code:

  • You can try to fix each individual societal problem w/ a ‘program’ … or you can address multiple ills at once w/ God’s Word …

 

As DNA is the language of life, the Bible is the language of eternal life!

  • He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I John 5:12

 

Belief in Genesis/creation is vital to having a healthy, proper world view.

 

Genesis is not an allegory.

 

Jesus believed in the Genesis account exactly as written: … “Have you not read that He Who made them at beginning ‘made them male and female,’?” Matthew 19:4
