Godís Creation: People Are Not Animals Because We Can
Control Our Sex Drives

There are many differences among human beings and animals. Evolutionists love to say humanís come from animals. They like to lump humans and animals together as if they are from the same class. But God, the Creator of all mankind created animals for very specific purposes. God tells us that people are to rule over the animals in every which way.  

Then God said, ďLet us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that movie along the ground.Ē  (Genesis 1:26)

God did not create animals with control of their sex driveóthey have no inhibitions or the power to reason or to moralize like human beings do. This is one of the biggest differences between animals and humans. God created humans with the ability to control their sex drive and walk away from tempting situations. In fact God made us so different from the animals that we are made in the image of God himself! You and me are the reflection of Godís glory!

Of course humans will never be exactly like God because He is our supreme Creator, but we have the ability to reflect His character through our love for others and by obeying His precepts for our lives. We do reflect Godís character in us when we respect and love others in the proper ways, not in passionate lust like the heathen who do not know God.  (1 Thessalonians 4:5)

Animals are just animals, they are unable to control when, why, and who they mate withóits instinctive for animals to wonder around for a mate to have sex with. But God created humans in a very different way to have sex. Humans were not created to wonder around and find just anyone to mate with every day. God created what is called the one flesh of marriage for enjoying sex.

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

Because men and women are made in Godís image and we are a reflection of Godís glory, we have a solid foundation for personal self-worth and respecting others. Self-worth for ourselves and for others should not be based on what we own, how much money we have, our achievements or physical attractiveness. Instead self-worth and respect for others should be based on the fact that we are made in the image of God and through our lives we reflect Godís character!

So God created man in his own image, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1: 27)

When we take advantage of others by NOT controlling our sex drives we are not glorifying God but evolution because we become just like the animals, who do not know God.

But God created men and women with the ability to control themselves in all things. If God intended for humans to have uncontrolled sex like the animals, he would not have created commitment, nor the sanctity of the one flesh of marriage. If God intended for humans to run amok with their sex drives He would have made them in the image of the animals.

Instead God created humans, not only with self-control but also with the ability to commit and devote themselves to a lifetime of marriage. Even some birds mate for life. If God created certain birds to mate for life and they are made inferior to humans, donít you think he would also give humans the ability to stay married for a lifetime? How much more God loves us over the animals!

And even the very hairs of your head are numbered. So donít be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:30-31)

God made us superior to the animals in every which way! Human beings are not animals. Donít EVER believe you are a part of the animal kingdom, because it is just not so. God made us with the power to reason, to love, to forgive, to be devoted to one another for life and with the ability to say ďNOĒ to an immoral and corrupt lifestyle. God gave us absolute authority and control over the animals of the earth.

God blessed them and said to them, ďBe fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground. (Genesis 2:28)

God made us in His image for us to Glorify him and his wonderful creation through how we regard and treat others in our relationships. Humans have been given the power, through Christ, to resist temptation and to live a life that is pleasing to God. God made us with intelligence and reasoning, so we can have the ability to love one another according to His principles that are outlined in scripture, not only for our own spiritual well-being but for the well-being of others.

God created human beings to be spiritual by recognizing and utilizing Christís Spirit within them, to help them live a Godly life. Animals were created for food and for manís enjoyment and livelihood. We have dominion over the animals and therefore we should not take heed when some people like to group people as animals. We did not evolve from an ape or a clam. God created us in his image and knew who we were before we were even a twinkle in our motherís eye.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well. (Psalm 139:13-14

If some humans are living their lives as if they were animals it is because they DO NOT KNOW GOD. They do not know that they have been made in Godís image and likeness.

For we are Godís workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
