In this assignment, you will summarize beliefs about the origin of the universe and life, including what Christians believe, what you believe, and how people’s beliefs about origins might impact how they live.
After reflecting on chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis, write a 750-1,000-word paper covering the following topics, paying particular emphasis on item three:
Briefly explain the Genesis account of creation (first two chapters). The point is not to retell all aspects of the story in detail but just to make the message of the Bible clear.
Explain and support your interpretation of the origin of the universe. Here you may want to address evolution, age of the earth, and whether or not it can be reconciled with the message of the Bible.
Express how your understanding of the origin of the universe impacts your worldview, specifically your view of God, of humanity, and responsibility to care for the earth.
Use two to four resources, in addition to the Bible.
