Our relationship to God is essential to how we view everything else in our busy everyday life. One of the things I got out of the Foundation study from Answers In Genesis was the importance of a Christian worldview. It affects how we view other people, the universe, God’s word, God’s will, sin, faith and obedience. Wrong ideas about God will lead to wrong ideas about who we are and what we should do, this will put us on the wrong path. In other words, theology -the right knowledge of God- is essential to live a fulfilled life. In the video Ray Comfort of Living Waters put together Evolution verses God, Ray asks various people (atheist and agnostics) who they would save if a fire was to break out, their dog or neighbor. All of them responded that they would save their dog. To them animals are just as important as humans so they didn’t see any difference between the two. Richard Dawkins, a famous atheist, says a feral pig is just as important as a fetus. Human life has no value. We see this all over the world. China has no value in baby girls, with a one child policy boys are the preferred baby to have. One of the groups Refuge Kids is associated with came across a village in China where they were selling young Chinese girls as young as seven into the human slave trade. The price ….$50 each, keep in mind that this was the child’s parents selling them into prostitution. They had no value of human life.
Matthew 10:29-3129 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
As children of God we are all valuable. We all have importance. Jesus was willing to lay down His life for YOU! YOU are important and valuable to HIM!
