Really? If that is logical thinking, then am I a watch because I have two hands?
This got me thinking about the distortion of God’s truth that we frequently see and hear about in today’s society. We live in a day and age where the distinction between humans and animals is many times minimized, and the roles that they play in our world, are being blurred.
So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Wow! Human beings are SPECIAL!
Biblical support can be found for a lengthy list of differences between animals and man. Here are just a few of the differences:
- God communicates to human beings through the Bible because He has given us the intelligence to understand and learn from it. Animals have no ability to do this.
- God’s Word calls mankind to study His Word and holds them responsible to study and obey it. Animals are not held responsible for this.
