How did the earth and its people come to be? The world may never know the actual answer to this question, but that hasn't stopped people from digging into all the evidence the world has to offer. Several different opinions have developed regarding how the earth came to be. According to a survey taken in 2012, approximately 32% of the population believes that humans evolved over millions of years by God's guiding hand, 15% believe that humans evolved over millions of years completely without God, 46% believe God created humans in present form within the last 10,000 years or so, and 7% don't have an opinion. My opinion on creation is that humans have evolved over millions of years by God’s guiding hand. Nothing that happened in the history of the Earth happened without God’s intention: "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made" (John 1:3). I am a human being created in the image of God. My purpose on Earth is to spread the word of God to the world. The world that he has blessed us with is beautiful, but is often tainted by the endless sins that we commit. It’s our job to take care of the earth, but sometimes it’s easier to just ignore our tasks. The problem with the world today is that we do whatever we can to take the easy way out; the world ignores Scripture and relies on a worldview based by our culture. The Naturalist world believes that God doesn’t exist; they believe humans just happened through the evolutionary process by chance. The problem with this is the ignorance that arises toward God’s beautiful creation. We get caught up with our society and don’t take the time to realize all of the thought and time that God has put into making it. I believe that the science fou... ... middle of paper ... ...should be taken literally, or in terms of our language today. However, we can agree with all Christians that the Bible is the true, inspired, infallible Word of God. God is the creator and controller of all things who has redeemed all fallen creatures. I believe that I am created in God's image and it's my job as a Christian to take care of the earth. I believe that God is the creator of all things and everything happens through him. I believe in the Day-Age Interpretation; I believe that we can look to the Bible and modern science for information about the Earth's history. I believe that the earth has formed over billions of years and that God first created people as simple creatures and evolved them as time passed. I believe that people can have their different opinions about the creation of the earth, but everyone should believe that God was behind it all.
