So, is there such a thing as an ape-man?
Oh no! A thousand times no!
There never has been, and there never will be.
God told us in the Bible long ago.
Put on your Bible glasses.
Let’s see what God’s Word has to say.
Just how did human beings arrive here?
In Genesis, God puts it this way:
So God created man in His
own image.” Genesis 1:27
And the Lord God formed
man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life; and man became a
living being.” Genesis 2:7
And the Lord God caused a deep
sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept;
and He took one of his ribs, and closed
up the flesh in its place. Then the rib
which the Lord God had taken from
man He made into a woman.” Genesis 2:21–22
Man was made after land animals on the sixth day of Creation Week. Genesis 1:24–31
So God created man in His own
image; in the image of God He
created him; male and female He
created them.” Genesis 1:27
So I’m glad that you asked
about our past.
The Bible describes our family tree.
You didn’t come from ape-like creatures at all.
You’re made specially in God’s image, you see.
And I know of your worth and value,
because of what happened long ago.
God saw we were stuck with a problem,
we could not fix by ourselves here below.
It was a heart of sin we inherited.
Death was the punishment alone.
But instead of this crushing our future,
God sent us His very own Son.
Jesus was given our punishment.
He lost His life in our place.
This sacrifice was not made for animal kinds,
but for people—the precious human race!
By the way, I really, really, really learned a lot about ape-men. Did you?
