Use the Bible to explain moral issues

With the election coming, issues cause contention, such as abortion, same sex marriages, homosexual relationships, truthfulness and deceit. Children ask parents why they are wrong, and many answer just because it is; not a good answer. They are wrong because God says they are. Parents should show, using the Bible, what God, the creator, says. There's only one God; others are false (Is. 45:22; Jn. 17:3; Eph. 4:4-6). He has all authority.

Evolutionist, humanists and atheists attempt to disprove Genesis. If they destroy Genesis, the Bible cannot be dependable. If God didn’t create the world in six 24 hour days (Gen. 1:31; Ex. 20:8-11; 31:17); if God did not set one man and one woman for each other (looking at man and woman is explanation enough); and if there were no worldwide flood (Gen. 7:17-24), the foundation is gone. The Bible is true, or not (Rom. 15:4). If people are convinced Genesis is false, then Jesus, miracles, the cross, resurrection, and return can be myths.

Heb. 11:3 says by faith we believe in God. Paul wrote in Rom. 1 that since the creation of the world his invisible attributes are clearly seen. Then he tells how man went against nature (for the woman), and lusted for man; also woman for woman. He named other sins, because they left God, and which are worthy of death; also those who approve of them.

Evolution can't be proven, nor can the earth being older than around 6,000 years (theories, not proof). Genesis cannot be proven false. Most didn't believe Jesus, and killed him, because he was doing well, and claiming to be God. Most will not believe, nor obey Jesus; God wants all people to accept Jesus as Lord.
