    Default creation had a purpose

    “For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body”. (1 Corinthians 6:20)
    God did not create the physical-material universe willy-nilly. He had a purpose, namely, to add to the ways his glory is externalized and made manifest. “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork” (Psalm 19:1).

    Our bodies fit into that same category of physical things that God created for this reason. He is not going to back out on his plan to glorify himself through human beings and human bodies. Why does God go to all the trouble with our decaying, sin-stained flesh, in order to reestablish it as a resurrection body and clothe it with immortality? Answer: Because his Son paid the price of death so that the Father’s purpose for the material universe would be fulfilled, namely, that he would be glorified in it, including in our bodies, forever and ever.

    That’s what the text says: “You were bought with a price [the death of his Son]. So glorify God in your body.” God will not disregard or dishonor the work of his Son. God will honor the work of his Son by raising our bodies from the dead, and we will use our bodies to glorify him forever and ever.
    That is why you have a body now. That is why Adam was created, fully formed and fully human and not evolved from an ape. And that is why it will be raised to be like Christ’s glorious body.

    What the Bible says is that we are part of this earth that came to life.
    that we are from the earth....

    and as it turns out, that is the very same thing that Evolution teaches!

    The two works (Genesis and Evolution) arrive at the very same starting point for man....the earth itself.


    and there is more!

    In Evolution both humans and animals share a common starting point.
    That starting point if the earth

    And guess what?...The bible teaches the very same thing!....

    Amen!
