Alan spoke this morning on the enlightenment that knowledge brings, specifically looking at the subject of Creation. He talked about how the Bible gives us answers to the fundamental questions in life such as ‘Where did we come from? Why are we here? What’s our place and purpose in the world?’ The Bible explains that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, made in God’s image. God is the Creator of the universe and our Creator. He is omniscient (Ps 139:2-6, Is 40: 13-14), and though men may reject a knowledge of God, God has given us ample evidence of His works so that we are without excuse (Rom 1:18-22).

When we are born, we lack knowledge and possess only instinct. A baby can float in water, for example; it learns that crying attracts attention and brings food and care! But as we grow, we can add learning and knowledge to instinct and can grow in grace and in an understanding of the Lord Jesus Christ.
