Exo 32:1, “And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we [know] not what is become of him.”

“Hence we may understand that hypocrites so fear God as that religion vanishes from their hearts, unless there be some task-master (exactor) standing by them to keep them in the path of duty.”

-John Calvin

Well, apparently evolution has failed to make us invincible behind the wheel. So humans have retooled themsellves to give Darwinism a little boost. This better (?) human being is able to roll with rolls, to bob and weave with head-ons. Only, I think there’s one design flaw. This better human cannot procreate because he is so repulsive.

I’ll stick with Intelligent Design. God makes perfect humans – able to build vehicles, make them safer, find romance, and perpetuate the race. No accident!

-Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920)

God also hears with his ear, sees with his eye, walks with his feet, strikes with his hand, saves with his arm, points with his finger, feels with his heart, moans in his inner parts, shows wrath in his face, and so much more. Of all these expressions and manifestations of life in God, an imprint has been put in man, and this imprint expresses itself through the members and senses of the body. And for this reason it won’t do to say that our body as such has nothing to do with the image of God.”

-Abraham Kuyper, Common Grace, 1:187
