Q: How can man have a knowledge of God, even if he is not taught about Him?

A: In Genesis 1:26 we read, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” And then again in Genesis 1:27 we read, “So God made man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Being created in God’s image makes us “God-oriented” beings with a built-in knowledge of Him. Also, Paul teaches us in Romans that God has written on our hearts the fact that He exists.

Evolutionist Quote of the Week

“In seeking to understand why the Haeckelian view persisted so long, we have also to consider the alternatives. We often are highly conservative and will hold to a viewpoint longer than is justified when there is no alternative or, worse, when the logical alternative upsets the rest of our world view.”

– Keith Stewart Thomson, Marginalia Ontogeny and Phylogeny Recapitulated, American Scientist 76:274, May – June 1988.

Here’s a marvelous example.

Most have probably heard of Helen Keller. She was born blind and deaf, and for years had no way to communicate with anyone. Finally people found a way. One day, a pastor was brought in to teach her about Christianity. When he started telling her about God, she responded with excitement. Although it’s not clear if she received the Lord as her Savior, she had always known that God existed … she just didn’t know what to call Him.

How could someone born blind and deaf know that God existed? Simple—because we’re made in His image and therefore bear the knowledge of Him.
