Two Antithetical World Views..

man vs machoine

Basically what this sketch is is the ways people today view humanity in contrast to what the bible says. Today man is seen as just another part of the natural world, he has no more significance than a fish or tree, because in today’s thought we and the fish and the tree all share the same atoms and protons and electrons. So man is just a chemical reaction and has no true personal nature, no true significance and no true choice. So when you let this idea take hold, you loose the basis for accountability in man’s action and thus morality. Man becomes just a machine who acts of his natural chemical impulses. The bible says man is different, that man is created as a finite form of an infinite creator. And that he as a personal being has accountability to his actions. This can only be so if there is a God who unifies the whole of life, both in the natural (finite) and in the unseen. Because it is in his revelation that we can find a unity of all things.
