DUST OF THE GROUND. The intelligentsia of this world has long mocked the Christian belief that God made Adam from “the dust of the ground” (Genesis 2:7). They should use their God-given brains to think a little more.
All of us, them included, are made from “the dust of the ground.” Our bodies are sustained by food, and all the food that we eat, vegetable or meat, comes from “the dust of the ground.” Seed is sown, plants grow, and we eat. Likewise, animals eat plant life, and we eat them. The same is true of the creatures of the sea. We are sustained entirely by “the dust of the ground.”
God reminds us, “dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” (Genesis 3:19), and that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 2:27).
