God rejected Cain’s sacrifice, because he was trying to offer his own best efforts. God had already shown that only a covering of animal skins, requiring the shedding of blood, would be good enough to cover a person’s sin. That is why Abel’s offering was accepted.
Psalm 19:1 says “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” This is what makes stargazing such a profound experience, in my opinion, because as we look at the night sky, we are being reminded of the creative power and glory of God.

Genesis is important, because it is at the foundation of every major Christian doctrine. Paul Taylor explains this point, and expands it at length in his book, No Time for Itching Ears.

From left to right, there is a skull of a mesonychid, a skull from an ambulocetus, and one from a modern whale. Labels indicate the position of the nose; nostrils near the […]

For example, one common high-school criticism of evolution is that it is “just a theory.” The use of such an argument misses the point about what a theory actually is. The National Academy of Sciences has defined a theory […]

That hypothesis, now supported by a huge body of evidence, has become the theory of evolution. Hyperbolic comments, in other […]
