Memory Text:  “Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves” (Psalm 100:3).

Key Thought: God created humanity in His own image; sin defiled that image. God’s plan is to restore that image in us.

These are ancient questions that humans still debate today. Scripture, however, answers them all.
