It is a popular concept in the Western world that people evolved from ape-like ancestors. So where do we come from? Are we more than products of chance?
Read these verses from the Bible that were inspired by God, the Creator of all things:
Genesis 1:26-27 — And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 2:7 — And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Job 10:8-12 — Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.
Job 33:4 — The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
