What is or Who is a man?

In this age and time of technology, information, and so many conspiracy theories it is easier for one to get the wrong information and be lost. I recently found myself listening to a debate by colleagues. One was approving of Charles Darwin Theory of evolution and another believed strongly in the big band theory that was caused by aliens. Both these guys were trying to explain our existence. The debate was so intriguing and interesting I decided to not take part in it and just listen.

Both these guys believed in their theories and they could have easily convinced anyone and especially children. It raised question in me too that prompted a research and a thorough reading of the word of God. I had question like What is a man? Did we really begin as Homo sapiens? Are we a failed experiment by aliens that are looking and enjoying the show from a distance.

Genesis 1:26 Then God said , "Let us make man in Our image, according to our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air; and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

Psalms 8:4-6 What is a man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? for you have made him a little lower than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands and You have put all things under his feet.

If ever you found yourself wondering who you are, always remember that you are no failed experiment but you are made from the image of God.You have dominion, authority and power of all the works of God's hands. You are not product of some Big Bang and you definitely didn't start out as a baboon. You were made to be a little lesser than the angels.

God knew you before you were born and certainly you weren't in some aliens's plan. These are the things we should teach our kids so they grow up and live confidently knowing God is by their side and He visits us. We have been made rulers and we were made to be rulers of this earth. God put everything under our feet.
