a living soul." Many scientists and other people of the world have been and are seeking for"' the answer"' to the question, "What is life.” They have ignored God's revelation. They have found no answer. Some years ago it was suggested that life was first produced by spontaneous generation. However, after much experimentation, most scientists have learned that life can only come from other life and be handed down from life to life. It cannot be manufactured or created by man. If they will
follow the direction revelation of God: breathed into man's God the creator, He
in which their experiments point, they will find the
"In the beginning God created ...
nostrils the breath of life." is the life giver.
Not only is the Living
We have recognized the "sense of ought" and the built-in sense of worship within man. God 's revelation shows us how this came about. The Genesis record tells us that God spoke to our first parents in the Garden of Eden and rebuked their sin. That is, God revealed Himself and His displeasure at the disobedience of His creatures. Mankind has a built-in memory of that first revelation by God to man. In the idol worship of the pagan religions we see human perversions of that first revelation by God to man. Man was created by God in a perfect state and setting. But man fell from that state, revelation tells us. And all history since that time is the history of man struggling to regain that original state.
There is a theory in the world which says that the forms of paganism that have existed in the history of the world were steps in a gradual process of development of the idea of God. This theory says that this gradual process has finally evolved into the Hebrew and Christian religions and the present day beliefs in God. If this theory is true, God is non-existant and merely the product of human thinking. However, even human reasoning indicates this theory to be false. The experience of man has been that man does not develop religiously to a higher state on his own. This age in which we live today is no more highly developed in religious
thought than any other re1igions, as we go back
