Hi! I’m Blizzard the polar bear. I live way up north in the Arctic region and spend much of my time hunting on the sea ice. I’m a very good swimmer and even have partial webbing between my toes. This allows me to swim between ice floes as I hunt. Because I spend so much time in the water, and have special features that allow me to do so, I’m classified as a marine mammal.

Most people think polar bears are white, but I’m not! I have black skin and am covered with hollow hairs. These hairs reflect the light, making me look white. This helps me blend in with my snowy environment. It’s a pretty clever design by God!

Before the Fall, the bear kind just ate plants, but now we eat meat. My favorite food is seal, but I’ll also eat walrus, beluga whales, fish, bird eggs, and even reindeer, depending on what’s available.

Like all baby polar bears, I was born in a den my mom dug in the snow. It was cozy and warm in there, keeping me safe from the cold air outside. Most polar bears have two babies at a time, though some have just one and others have three. A newborn weighs just one and a half pounds! But someday that tiny newborn will weigh half a ton and be the top predator of the Arctic sea ice.

Apologetics Focus

The Arctic is a special environment. Many of the plant and animal species that live here aren’t found anywhere else. This reminds me of something else that’s unique—the Bible! It’s a book unlike any other ever written because:

  • It came from God. God used human authors to write it, but, ultimately, the Bible is the Word of God!
  • It has no mistakes. God’s Word is truth (John 17:17). It is trustworthy in all that it says.
  • It has a one-of-a-kind message! The Bible tells us how we can be saved and forgiven of our sin by putting our faith and trust in Jesus and His death and Resurrection. That’s an exclusive message you won’t find in any other religious writing.

The Bible is a unique and trustworthy book!
