God Print #3: The Influence on Civilization

god-prints-treeEaster just passed and I can’t help but think of how much the Bible has influenced society.

If it wasn’t for the Bible, we wouldn’t celebrate our favorite times of the year, like Easter and Christmas (they have been commercialized and mixed with other traditions, but still).

We wouldn’t have 7 days in the week if it wasn’t for the Bible. It wouldn’t even be the year 2017, but we count from the time of Christ’s birth.

Most of us wouldn’t even have our names if it weren’t for Bible.

My name – Kylah (spelled Kaila), Aaron, Abigail, Adam, Andrew, Anna, Ariel, Barack, Candace, Chloe, Christian, Claudia, Daniel, David, Diana, Elijah, Elizabeth, Ethan, Gabriel, Hannah, Jacob, James, Jared, Joel, John, Jordan, Joseph, Josiah, Julia, Leah, Lois, Lucas, Luke, Lydia, Mark, Micah, Michael, Nathan, Paul, Philip, Rebecca, Reuben, Sarah, Seth, Simon, Steven, Tamar, Thomas, Tim, and the list goes on.

And after your parents named you, a certain medical procedure was done to you if you’re a male, which came from the Bible. (… I’ll leave it at that).

Speaking of medical, I personally don’t think we would have the symbol of medicine if it weren’t for Moses’ story about healing via the snake on the pole.

We wouldn’t even have the most fundamental laws that keep us safe, which are founded on “thou shalt not kill, steal, lie,” and the rest of the 10 Commandments. Our businesses are even closed on Sunday because of the Sabbath day commandment.

And there’s so much more. If we took the Bible and its principles out of everything, society wouldn’t be left with much. 

Your name might not be in the Bible, but it could be in the Book of Life. Learn more here.

God Print #2: The Chicken & the Egg

56256845_sSince God Print #1 was on the topic of creation, it was natural for me to write about this question. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

The chicken and the egg riddle simply points to an outside source having created either the chicken or the egg. Think of it in terms of humans.

Which came first, a human or human sperm cells? The human couldn’t be created without the sperm cells, and the sperm cells couldn’t be created without the human. Therefore, neither of them could have gotten there without an outside source – a Creator – creating and placing them there.

“God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them. God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

God Print #1

56256845_sOk, here goes the first post of this series!

The bible says that God made Adam and then made Eve from a piece of Adam’s flesh.

This is demonstrated in science by males having one X and one Y chromosome (XY) and females having only two X chromosomes (XX). This proves that the female did come from the male, because only males have the Y chromosome, which determines the male sex in a person. Meaning that both sexes had to originate from the man, and not the other way around.

“And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Genesis 2:23

“Woman” … as in “womb man”. She was taken from man’s womb, and she became the womb of all who have ever lived.
